    Can we agree on 70% bad writing, 30% shock value?

    Still doesn't make any sense. Cersei being a much lesser threat is a real problem and this ain't gonna solve it. Before the battle of Winterfell Dany could have crushed Cersei easily and even now all they would have to do is wait, as her advisors said. Dany just claimed the opposite without any evidence. And choosing to split forces and go through sea which is the only place Cersei (actually Euron) has a chance outside of KL was another stupid decision. They are making script decisions based on what needs to happen and they don't care how they reach that.

    Oh, and let Arya sneak in and kill Cersei without a single loss.

    I'm sure they thought they need to kill another dragon to even the odds (and with good reason), but it should've been executed better, far better. Now it looks like they thought "why should we spend time and budget to do it in detail when we can shock the audience and be done with it in a second?!" That's not good storytelling, it's absolute garbage. Bronn couldn't hit as well from a shorter range and Drogon was flying straight towards him. Now Euron's fleet had a cloaking device and homing lasers like they were in Star Trek. 3 direct hits from a huge distance at a high flying dragon and no one sees a thing? They took the old "if it's outside the frame, it becomes invisible" trope from countless bad horror movies where the bad guy is standing 2m away from the victim, hidden in plain sight. If they needed to lose another dragon, why not do it in ep3? THAT would have been the place to do it. Let Viserion do it.

    What I meant was I was worried about the show ruining the coming books by revealing everything, but now that the show writers have f'd it up, the books will do things differently and better. I'm sure George is taking notes. He's likely to make changes to at least some of the things he revealed to them and tweak things he didn't reveal and some things he hasn't even thought about.

    spoilers coming (don't know how to hide the spoilers anymore) These last 2 episodes are tearing me apart... on one hand the Long Night was awesome edge-of-the-seat action and suspense, but on the other hand it had a couple of huge writing fails that smashed years of foreshadowing and replaced it with show runners' own ham-fisted bs. Same with the 4th episode. I liked how they set up Dany's turn into madness (well, not really, she's just pissed off), making it more reasonable than I thought would be possible. Then again Sansa has turned into a hindrance, she's just moaning about everything now. Killing the dragon was absolute bs! Extremely silly, I couldn't believe my eyes, thought I was watching a dream sequence. The writers seem to love the last jedi, they sure love subverting expectations (doing idiotic shocks just to surprise people while not thinking twice if it makes sense). My enthusiasm about this series has gone downhill fast, and it's sad. Well, at least this makes the books better in comparison.

    I'm assuming the WW are dudes because they're Craster's sons. Don't know if Craster was the only one giving sons to them and if it was Craster's idea to give only sons. A Stark who was lord commander of the NW married a female probably-a-white-walker. So there should be female WWs or at least there were. Maybe they are coming for brides. Wouldn't be the first time people have been stealing brides from beyond the wall.

    Ha ha, that would do it! Probably. Not. They kinda implied that dragonfire might not do it...

    Well we have been able to deduce that the NK is butthurt about being turned into a WW, so there's that. I'm sure there is more to come, though.

    Game of Thrones

    This episode by feels: Fun: Tormund being Tormund. Outrageous stories about giants, lusting over "the big woman", Gendry's limited dictionary, The fireplace gang's banter, The Hound threating to throw Beric over the wall The feels: Jamie and Brienne confessing their lo... -respect for each other, A Knight of the 7 kingdoms! , Theon's return (surprisingly), Shireen v2, Arya and the Hound bonding again Frustration: Dany being obsessed with ruling over everyone and being a little too hot/cold. Thinking that Theon and his gang of lazy rapists are going to be able to protect Bran from NK, his dragon and the army of the dead. Aren't they going to tell us what Bran told Tyrion? Lust: over Arya's clearly adult side boob and general horniness Fear: that everyone we saw being happy or talking about the future or generally being focused on (The survivor editing) is going to die. The plan is going to fail. That everyone who is put in the crypts is in for a rude awakening. That place is full of dead people and the necromancer is coming... surely a bad idea? Although there is a story about the dead Starks guarding the door to death's realm or something. Wonder: NK has tried to get to "many" 3ERs. I'm aware of only 1 before Bran and only 1 Long Night before this. How will Dany use her dragons? Where will she put them? Where will NK put his? He was notably missing from the final shot. Awesomeness: the talk about NK's objective, The Nightwatch bros hanging on the wall (so to speak). I have to wait all monday to watch the next episode. I'm afraid I'll accidentally spoil myself opening facebook or something before that...

    Probably something to do with the pact they made in the previous Long Night - if that's what happened. GoT is full of inaccurate historical stories - purposely so. In the books there's many notions about a balance between magical and mundane (glass candles and s*** they left out of the series). Dragons were born, WW went apes*** etc. Or maybe it's about Gods. Are all the gods one and the same? Or maybe 2 gods fighting each other through pawns. About the babies: If the WW can grow, then they must be alive, right?

    Sober and Crangs, Sam's brother was originally played by a different actor, that's probably why you have a hard time remembering him.

    That would be something! "The prince that was promised" could mean a human sacrifice that was promised to the NK.

    The Isle of faces? Could be, although it seems less likely each passing episode where it goes unmentioned. It would feel superficial if something so important wasn't foreshadowed at all. Some people think (with good evidence) that creation spot is the same as in the vision where NK grabbed Bran's arm and it looks like it was beyond the Wall.

    The Night King has chosen to go directly to Winterfell, not stopping to increase his army with the bodies of northerners except the people of the Last Hearth which lies on route. He is going straight for something. Interesting. Is his target Bran? It's the only thing he has shown special interest in with the exception of the killing the 3ER and staring intently at Jon (but letting him live).
