last nights episode was epic
and that is an understatement - I was on the edge of my seat through the whole white walker/undead bit.
For the last time, THE TV SHOW DOESN'T FOLLOW THE BOOKS!
It had to be. About time the white walkers fully revealed themselves! Old frozen Bran Stark, aka the Nights King is AWESOME! I seriously hope when Jon Snow dies he ends up joining the ranks of the Nights King (as a white walker, not just an undead wight), and possibly his successor (since he's related and all) and then with Daenerys and her dragons it becomes fire vs ice, or "a song of fire and ice".
There's two episodes left and only one episode his season has been worth watching. The rest has been ****! Only people in denial or fanbois will thing this has been a good season.
i decided that i would buy that books today. so i ordered them online. i cant wait.
im hoping because ive watched the series i wont have a problem not following whats going on.
no way, Game of Thrones is not just about these big moments - it's also about all the manoeuvring and politics.
It's not as dense story wise but there's still plenty of great stuff going on this season.
I absolutely loved the conversation between Tyrion and Daenerys, and seeing how Cersei's plans have been crushed - you don't build these characters up for no reason.
They, Tyrion and Daenerys, should marry.
I agree there's some good story lines... But it's been moving too slowly. Focussing too much on the narrative. It's lost its balance compared to earlier seasons.
Tyrion and Daenerys chat was good. But the best conversation of the series goes to Olenna and Varys.
Also interesting speculation about the title for the season finale: "Mother's Mercy". People clinging to hope that it's the rise of Lady Stoneheart...
Well we are in dangerous territory now , George needs to get his pen to paper fast
meh. the show can continue without him...
I dont think that title has anything to dowith her. Mercy is not a word Id associate with Stoneheart.
It will be the Walk of Shame.
Yeah at this point the show and books are two totally different things.
Im really disappointed its taken till Epsidoe 8 for something to happen this season.
Couldn't agree more! And then not much in Episode 9 either. And with one episode left, this season is going to be the most disappointing to date...
What happened to the good old days of 20+ episodes per season? Imagine that!
Episode 9 ugh.
Dont get me started. Can they just kill Stannis instead of butchering his charachter slowly?
Shireen will burn in the books. But it wont be at Stannis' hands.
Dorne is a ####ing joke. Holy plothole Batman. Doran is sending Kings Landing a hostage?! WUT.
Stannis burns his only heir.
Ramsay is a ninja.
I hope we get For the Watch next week.
Considering the show has all but caught up with the books, things will be different. I think it's safe to assume Jon Snow doesn't "die" per-say. He is a descendant of the Night's King after all. But where things go after Season 5 is anyone's guess...
Daenerys' whole storyline is complete frustration from the moment she arrives in Meereen. She has a massive, elite army at her disposal, not to mention her dragons, and has been brutal when she needed to be up until Meereen. Since then she's just faffed about with an occasional poking from Daario. The chat with Tyrion was compelling and she clearly wants to sit on the Iron Throne but she still decided to keep faffing about in Meereen until she flees back to the Great Grass Sea. Then what? Pfffft! Arya and Sansa are all but irrelevant, Bran's storyline just ended and the potential for Jon Snow is fading.
The whole GoT is beyond frustrating and being drawn out too much. It's a show that's screwing someone for the first time and while there was initial enjoyment (Seasons 1 - 3), it's been, and still is, thinking about it's grandma to draw it out. It better bloody well be a HUGE climax or it won't have been worth it.
At this rate I'd be happy to see the White Walkers team up with the Children of the Forrest and wipe everyone out.
Ive really disliked this season. Dorne is absolute filler nonsense. The Sand Snakes are comical at best. The charachters have been totally lost in a blur of confusing story telling. D&D have contradicted who the Snakes are twice so far. They cant make up their mind what type of relation they are to Doran. Areo though, loving him.
Stannis has been turned into the villain again. Exactly 10 episodes after he was the hero.
The Northern houses have been totally omitted except for Bear Island who got a brief mention. No Freys or Manderleys at the wedding which is HUGE because this entire story is about every action has a reaction. I mean if they wanted to give us some filler content, Sansa's wedding couldve included the Freys which weve already been introduced to and the Manderlys which play a part in what Bolton and Stannis (Davos) are doing and also provide the follow up to The Rat Cook tale from S2.
It really feels as if this season was purposefully filler with filler content and then dragged on as much as they could.
why are guys watching this show? it seems to be upsetting you more than enjoying it lol.
lol theres like flow charts and ****...
I enjoy the shows as a show. As an adaption its angering, sure. Looking past the adaption and looking only at the show as its own entity the writing this season has been abysmal and has backflipped a few times contradicting what theyve said not only this season but past seasons, and has created very large plot holes within its own story.
Its all been filled with meaningless plots that dont do anything to further the story.
Take for example Jamie in Dorne. Dorne has a story on its own (not that Dorans master plan works anymore because the show has ####ed the time line) It doesnt need a contrived reason for Jamie to come swooping in. Nethertheless he does and Doran Martell sums it up perfectly with one line "Why didnt you send a Raven?". Why indeed. Theyve also confused who the Sand Snakes are on two occasions in relation to other Martells. The other plothole in this story is Doran Martell, has one son left. Trystane, the prince of Dorne. The Martells have sent two heirs to Kings Landing both have ended up dead. Why the hell would Doran - who is not a stupid man - send his last? The only reason I can think of is he sends the Sand Snakes with him and they cause war. But Doran doesnt want war yet. He wants (needs) Dany to honor previous marriage proposals. Im happy to watch the show for what it is - as long as it makes sense.
They introduced Dorne this season as a way to give Nikolai scenes and lock him down so he wouldnt take another role somewhere else and its shown. Dorne is a mess with clumsy writing.
PS. The flow chart isnt my work. I dont have time for that. Its from ASOIAF forums, where there are many many many many angry people.
