    [Poll] How would you rate episode 704?

    I gave it a 10, it is as good as it gets, some fan service but it was enjoyable fan service the last scene was one of the best fantasy battle sequences that i have ever seen on screen i loved it.

    How would you rate episode 702?

    I gave this episode a 6, I felt it had some of the worst acting performances of the series especially from Maisie Williams although she did a good job in her scene with Nymeria it doesn't make up for the lacklustre performance with hotpie, it was just a painfully awkward reunion between two grown up child actors. I'm confused as to why Daenerys only confronted Varys after they got to Dragonstone, so we are supposed to believe they never talked on that long voyage to Dragonstone.I feel like their continuity director does a bad job or they don't even have one, to avoid that obvious plot hole all they needed to do was not have Varys at the end of season 6 standing smugly behind Daenerys on her ship, having said all that I enjoyed the dialogue in the Varys and Daenerys scene it was well written as sometimes happens with Bryan Cogman.The scene with Melisandre was a bit odd in the way Varys asked her if she had any other reason to believe Jon has a part to play other than "what you've seen in the flames" even though she never mentions seeing anything in the flames The battle scene at the end was great and the only reason I didn't score the episode a 2. The Greyworm & Missandei sex scene felt meaningless as though they were paying fan service to non existent fans. I really don't understand why they gave Jorah greyscale if they were going to have Sam cure it so easily .There are way too many scenes now were one scene segways from a character sending a message by crow to a character receiving the message, it's like sitting with a friend while they are constantly sending text messages, great entertainment right

    How would you rate episode 701?

    I gave it a 4, it was very underwhelming and as always the dialogue was dreadful, it feels as though every second character is obsessed with trying to find out what every other character "wants" or "believes". The thing that really bothers me is characters knowing things that have happened half the world away in what seems to be the blink of an eye as though they can switch on a tv and watch 24hr news courage, is planetos at this point 3 miles wide?.It has become more apparent after each season that D&D have no real affinity with the source material and without Georges input as a script writer are happy to write Game of Thrones as some crappy soap opera. the only redeeming scenes were Ed sherans song about Jaime and Cersei, even that was ruined by one of the soldiers asking Arya if she was " old enough to drink" as if some medieval cop is going to come rushing out of the woods to arrest him for giving alcohol to a minor. I won't even mention the Samwell chamber pot emptying montage only that D&D must have been spending too much time with Guy Richie during their lazy gap in filming. i quite liked the hound and Beric scene aswell.
  4. a rare 10/10 for me, sure there were some plot holes like why were Ramsay's hounds locked up when he threatened to use them in the battle? I suppose he could've just decided they were too valuable and overkill but that seems out of character,The Dothraki and the ironborn seem to have done a bit of teleporting ,putting that aside the whole episode had me sitting on the edge of my seat, I liked Daenerys dealing with the slavers army like a boss, yeah it was just a great piece of entertainment and they progressed a lot of the story too.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 607?

    7/10 I was ok with most of it, I didn't like anything in kingslanding.The return of the hound was always going to be a winner but I felt the Ian mcshane scenes were a little ropey, the dialogue was dreadful.why after nursing the hound back to health to the point were he is fit enough to work would he be telling him about how he found him for he first time.This episode moved the plot forward and hopefully the next episode will be better.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 606?

    7/10 wasn't a bad episode, it did seem a little pointless at times and it wasn't very entertaining, glad to see Coldhands confirmed as Benjen I have no idea why they didn't introduce him earlier. Danys scene feel like that scene from avatar to anyone else??

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 605?

    This episode was fantastic , I criticize this show a lot it has had some major flaws, this episode had some crappy moments, Littlefinger teleporting again, a bunch of seemingly intelligent people sitting around a table thinking Ramsey would wait around long enough for Brienne to ride all the way to the Riverlands, Leaf is apparently thousands of years old hmm I dunno how I feel about that.. Every scene was entertaining and progressed the plot, the acting was superb. The kingsmoot could've been done better but the acting and intensity was spot on , Sansa and Brienne making littlefinger squirm was a really good scene. The scene with Jorah and Dany was one of their best in the entire series very heart breaking.I loved the scene were Jaqen and Arya are walking through the hall of faces and he was explaining where the first faceless man came from, I feel that scene and Sansa confronting littlefinger were the strongest in terms of dialogue.The mummers play was perfect , the wart covered cock was a bit gratuitous but who cares in the greater scheme of things.The great revelation that the children of the forest created the nights king that scene was well done the CGI and cinematography were on point. Bran is now the key to the wights being able to breakthrough barriers put up by the children of the forest that is interesting and a huge plot development, I laughed when leaf died holding the pine cone hand grenade it is such a cliched action movie moment, last but not least poor Hodor and Summer , a moments silence please....I gave this episode a 10 , it was very enjoyable, everyone that voted 10 HOLD THE DOOR!! don't let those 1/10 voters get through

    I said the same thing when people were convinced D&D came up with Daenerys burning the khals with the help of the dosh khaleen, the very existence of dosh Khaleen and their temple meant Dany was going to tip the table there.

    Theon even when people praise his performances it is still underrated , Alfie does a fantastic job at playing that part.
