  1. Episode gets a solid 1 from me. Horrible. They should have called it A Song of Tyrion and Tyrion because this episode was all about him. This was the Peter Dinklage Emmy reel.
  2. Absolutely. I see people asking how will they resolve Essos and the Faceless Men and The Night's Watch and Ghost, etc. These people are also insane. They will barely resolve 2nd stringers' storylines (likely with one or two sentences) let alone red shirt bench warmers.
  3. Yeah, I think "cares" can be construed a few different ways in the question. I think, why has no one asked or is interested to hear about his death? He's kind of been an important person throughout Westeros to where everyone knew who he was. Yet, no one asks anything? Of course, some of these people are the same ones who have not asked about Rickon despite being related to him or asking about Walder Frey and his entire family. Jaime marched through the Twins twice. Jon and his army marched through on down towards King's Landing. No one seemed curious why all the Freys were dead?
  4. Haha. I won't lie, seeing Qyburn get tossed into the rocks was my favorite part of the episode. Probably the only good part.
  5. And aside from how Drogon did not burn anyone else but Varys, how did he even hear Dany say it? She spoke pretty quietly and monotone with that "Dracarys". Her tone to dragon firing a close advisor is like how I react to my wife asking me to do the dishes.
  6. So is Tyrion to blame for everything? He suggested the wight hunt. Dany could have just flown to the Red Keep with 3 dragons at the outset when she arrived at Dragonstone and destroyed the Red Keep only saving thousands of lives, and then she could have dealt with the white walkers with a unified Westeros. But St. Tyrion suggested she go north and capture a wight. He also has betrayed Dany multiple times. So can we all just blame him for King's Landing being in ruins?
  7. 2 out of 10 for me. It gets an extra point for the effects and cinematography. But everything else was horrible. How can anyone be nominated for an Emmy this season? There has been practically zero dialogue. Lena Headey has had about 5 lines the entire season. If this is George's idea for bittersweet, God help us all.
  8. 2 for me. It only gets above a 1 because MissWorm finally is over.
  9. They talked about how it was not possible to have each death be a meaningful one in this episode, but they really wanted to focus on baby Mormont's death because she was "amazing". Edd and potentially Ghost and Rhaegal get essentially off-screen deaths. But Ollie Mormont is worth a heroic death.
  10. This is all D&D's fault. They made Winterfell this pathetic castle since season 1. But at least season 1 you could blame it on the smaller budget. Winterfell is the seat of the north, and they treat it like a small little fort. There is nothing grand or spectacular about it in the show, and it has been a letdown from the get-go.
  11. 4 out of 10 for me. The only things that increased it were the visual effects and Baby Mormont finally biting it. The rest was a complete jumbled mess that was barely even able to be seen.
  12. Wasn't there that Volantene sex slave who loved him so much she was willing to sleep with him for free? Not sure if he did, but if there's one thing that's realistic on this show, it's that sex slaves will sleep with dwarves for free.
  13. Ah. You're right. Kind of forgot about the Tyrion scene. But yeah, nothing was learned. And yeah, the Ds love for things to be learned off-screen, so I am sure that is the case. Tyrion learns where whores go and his true Targ roots off-screen. hahaha.
  14. I'm so annoyed at the entire Branbot situation. This is the first episode we get even a hint at what Bran knows with everyone in the room. Shouldn't all of them be peppering him with questions on everything he knows? Sam is the only one even attempting to understand and figure out what Bran knows. They literally have a omniscient demi-god sitting in front of them, and they care more about fucking songs, drinking and fucking.
  15. You might be right, but that will be a weak-ass end to this series if that is true. I know Cersei wasn't in this episode and likely might not be in the next, or very little anyway. So the final episodes will be hugely focused on Cersei. Whatever they can do to get Lena the Emmy. But if this show wants something redeeming, it better have some twist. The fact that the Night King is just death and wants to bring death is dumb. So the good guys winning and beating death only to go and fight the next bad guy/girl/Cenobite only to squabble over the iron throne will be fucking stupid.
  16. 3 out of 10 for me. Pod singing was the highlight of the episode even if it was a ripoff of Mist and Shadow. And anything with Edd is great. But this episode just boils down to the writers not having the ability to write tension. For 8 seasons, we've been waiting for this - The Battle of Dawn. And yet, it felt so underwhelming. Not one time during this episode did it really feel like the characters were really in the moment. But as others have pointed out, the show now just proceeds to have big announcements be cut short by some interruption.
  17. Haha. I am pretty sure that awful wig Emilia wears is completely glued down on her head. And shouldn't hers, and now Jon's, delicate parts be a bit roughed up from riding on a dragon. Dragon scale-induced hemorrhoids have to hurt like a bitch! But if Tyrion can craft a saddle for a crippled boy in the matter of a day, couldn't he or someone have come up with some type of saddle considering the amount of time she has been riding them?
  18. Agree. So they disapprove of one kinslaying, murderous leader(s), but the other one is apparently ok. But the dudebros are the absolute worst at consistency when it comes to the sake of plot.
  19. It doesn't even feel like Cersei is even in King's Landing. It's like she is in this floating pyramid like Ra from Stargate and all her people are down below. When was the last time we've seen a normal scene in King's Landing? Every scene is either in the Dragon's pit or inside the Red Keep. There is no sense of her being the ruler of an actual city, let alone the 7 Kingdoms.
  20. It may happen somewhat regularly, but it is not ok. It is actually looked at as taboo. Other than the Targs, most other families did not practice it. Throughout the books and the show, the incestuous relationships have been foreshadowing downfall and doom. Craster was doomed. Jaime, Cersei and their offspring are/were all doomed. And Jon and Dany will likely be too.
  21. Can we pretty well assume Tyrion is betraying the Starks/Dany since otherwise he serves no other purpose at this point? He, Davos and Varys basically just walk around and make comments and jokes about being short, old or lacking testicles.
