Fyrewolf Posted June 18, 2015 Share Posted June 18, 2015 (edited) This season though has been up and down, i felt they seemed to be going for the 'shock factor' and contriving instances that would get talked about on media etc. Im not bothered by gore, or horrid things happening, but in the early seasons it felt logical and plot driven (red wedding, ned stark killing etc) This season it hasnt, it has felt like the producers have gone 'hey lets do a shocking scene that gets the media talking' I felt the way they built stannis up with his daughters touching scene then shortly after had her burning was a particularly contrived plotline and felt completely off. I didn't feel this season was any more 'shocking' or gratuitous than previous ones to be honest. For me, Shireens death felt pretty organic within the story, given what we've seen. Extreme, yes, but within the realms of believability. Edited June 18, 2015 by Fyrewolf Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
