They still did all that even with Stannis showing up. Them waiting a week to show them saving the NWs ass 10 minutes after Jon left the gate didn't do anything but suffocate 4.10.

No, it didn't. Even in the books, Stannis doesn't show up immediately. It takes him what, 4 chapters? But sure, let's cram all that in episode 4.9 where it doesn't fit thematically or dramatically because some people want it that way.

We'll just putting a calendar week between show events didn't give the illusion of 4 chapters either. The battle was also longer than one night. It would have made 4.9 a full hour and gave them space in 4.10 to actually show characters working towards events instead of event, event, event, event, event, event....credits.

Spread it out longer than one night and then you can't have an entire episode dedicated to it because other things are happening.

But in any case, it still doesn't change the fact that the themes for both episodes worked better with the ending the way it was.

To each their own I guess. But the uncharacteristically low ratings for 4.10 on the ratings thread speaks volumes.

These ratings threads mean shit, to be honest. People can choose any number they want without any real system. Leaving out LS at the end shouldn't have been enough justification for giving the show a 1, but people did it anyway. Some people gave it a low rating simply because they didn't like that Brienne beat the Hound. I mean, it's ridiculous.

Critically, the episode was very well received. It was a great endcap for the first half of the story, while setting up the second half. It did exactly what it was supposed to.

They really didn't have to make Slynt out to be that much of a coward, overdid it IMO.

I don't like the decisions to kill off Pyp and Grenn, although Grenn's death was badass to the core.

It is known...
