I think if someone is willing to explain why in the show, the show alone and not the books, Dany flew away in the first place, then I'd be willing to revise my score. Saint Tyrion and the gang have escaped the sons of the Harpy easily. So clearly, there wasn't really any danger she needed to flee from. And she realises that now since she calls Meereen home and wants to go back. Without any internal conflict whatsoever.

:agree:

And it can't be about Drogon being in danger/injured, because her dialogue suggests she had no idea he was injured. So why the hell did she tell him to fly??

Oh yeah, because they needed Dany to run into the Dothraki. Fuck logic.

I gave it a10 unreservedly. An even better episode than Hardhome, and my favourite episode since the finale of season 4. Some people might complain about the length of Cersei's walk of shame as if this were in any way gratuitous, but GRRM devotes an entire chapter to it, and it is meant to get uncomfortable. At first you're titillated by the nudity and like to see Cersei getting her comeuppance, and then you wind up feeling a bit sorry for her despite her monstrousness because the High Sparrow and the people of the Faith are so loathsome. They absolutely nailed it, and big props to Lena Headey for not taking the cheap way out by using a body double or a merkin, and for the producers not showing her from the neck up and from behind throughout as I suspected they might have done. The Arya scenes were just excellent, as were the scenes with Stannis, Theon, Sansa and the Boltons. I'm not sure how much of this is ultimately spoliered or depends on deviations, but I'm quite sure Stannis is still alive. It would serve no purpose to Brienne's new commitments to kill him, and I think she's buried her sword in the tree. And Theon and Sansa both need somewhere to escape to, so D and D would have no reason to deviate from source enough to kill him off so soon. The Dany and Meereen scenes were very well handled. My only nit, and it's a minor one, with this episode is Tyene's appalling "You want a good girl, but you need bad pussy" line, which sounded like something from a really cheesy porno flick. I'd have preffered Jon's stabbing to be surrounded by some giant action and chaos in camp chaos as it is in ADwD, but again job well done. For those Unsullied demeriting the episode because of its number of cliffhangers, the fifth novel is more extreme in this, and actually leaves the fates of even more main characters and important minor characters in doubt than has been presented in the finale. What ultimately happens with Arya is the only thing they've not caught up with yet.

Ehm, Jaime why don't you call trystane and bron and turn the fucking boat around? Doran wouldn't be pleased with the death of his son's loved one after all.. The walk of shame got a little more time than it should, but it was a well built scene. For the watch scene was good too, except Olly. That character is really unnecessary and stupid. Why put him in in the first place? I'm sure most of the guys that rated this ep. with 1, did cause of jon's death. He won't die, why mel and davos stayed back then? Common. Arya was supposed to lose her sight as reward for being ready to serve, and they made it a punishment. Meh



And the biggest disappointment. Out of the blue, half the mercenaries of Stannis the Mannis went to the bolton side? and ramsay was ramsay rambo again?LAME. I really hope the boltons get what's coming to them next season.

The show felt this season like the Ember Island Players' performance of the "Boy in the Iceberg".


Same plot, but ridiculous and parody like, with a view into the future that would be completely different.

NOT HAPPY that we didn't get our visions on the Dothraki Sea and Dany's internal conflict as seen through her "interactions" with Viserys and Jorah (and to a lesser extent Quaithe). Those are SO important. But of course, Dany hasn't struggled with her identity all season, like she is supposed to be doing.

That's a pretty decent rant compaining about people ranting....only difference is you chose 9/10 for your rating :dunno:

Mostly to screw with those who gave it 1. In honesty, I would have given it a 6-7, like the rest of the season.

I agree they nailed it - but I think it was a body double with some CG composting of Lena's face. if so - it was really goood CG work - which makes me wonder why the hell they can get this so good and fuck up much simpler things like skeletons and dragons.

danny - Lena didn't use a body double. She's been full frontal in a movie once before: same body. It's just that she's not done nudity that much. Stills from the shoot were closely protected near the beginning of the season, and she admitted it was her and that she felt completely terrified.



On another note, I honestly cannot believe 111 people voted this a 1. Even allowing for trolling, this episode was magnificent. I'm not sure exactly what people want.

This has been painful. I've given it a 2, because perhaps some parts were salvageable...



David and Dan should be fired immediately.

Look at the post directly above yours....there are links to 2 articles describing how Lena vetoed any nudity and that they filmed her doing the walk from the shoulders up and CG'ed in a body double

Ah, well, if that's the case then, my mistake. I thought they'd just dyed her public hair. Still not changed my mind about the 10.

I had no idea they could sync it to the point that we just saw the scene and don't really know if it was CG'ed or not....pretty cool!

seriously, for only 10 episodes a year they could've given us a little more to work with, I would never give up on the show but in all honesty, it's just becoming more and more disappointing

^^^ Actually I do think Cersei used a body double

Of course. The actress was pregnant at the time.
