    What was your personal GoT breaking point?

    Though I had many complaints in the first 4 seasons, I still loved the show for what it was. I was even willing to forgive some of the atrocities of season 5 because I foolishly hoped that they could recover some kind of narrative consistency. Season 6 finally broke me, fittingly while watching the episode "The Broken Man." Ian McShane's meribald/elder brother meld of a character was clearly going to die horribly, because he was introduced with a smile on his face. It was suddenly clear to me that the show is--and has always been--the EXACT OPPOSITE of the books on which it is allegedly based. ASOIAF is, among other things, a treatise on the futility of vengeance and the ways it corrodes the soul. GOT is a celebration of everything Martin decries. This was also about the time arya was mortally wounded, jumped into a literal sewer, crawled out and ate some soup, and was parkouring around braavos the next morning. The show had made huge mistakes before, but that was when I knew I could never forgive it, no matter what. Since then it's been an amazing hatewatch, and on that front it has NEVER disappointed.
