    SPOILERS... KIND OF

    I saw where Kit said that was his favorite episode of the series and I am still trying to figure out why. It wasn't a terrible episode, but far from one of the better GoT episodes.

    Not sure either, I’m guessing it’s just what the actors are supposed to be saying to keep the hype rolling.

    I have zero expectations at this point. They’ve shown repeatedly that they just don’t know how to handle the story after they ran out of book material. Execution has been awful. Are we supposed to believe Dany and her dragons couldn’t spot Euron’s fleet? Is Dany that incompetent to not realize she could have just flown around them and burned their fleet? It’s really just getting ridiculous at this point.

    I hope I’m wrong but it looks like we are getting a straightforward Hollywood ending for the most part. I really wish they would address Bran and the three eyed raven. The books have that set up a lot different.

    Yeah they’ve botched it big time. There were a lot of dumb parts. Why didn’t Cersei just wipe out the last dragon and 95% of dany’s council? Or why didn’t she kill Tyrion? That was a good scene though. Very cool visually.

    Euron is the worst character in the history of television and that includes Dana brody

    I turned on The Originals on Netflix just to have sound and I've ended up liking it.


    It's almost like a soap opera with vampires, witches, and werewolves.

    5 seasons long and I'm into the 2nd season. A bit cheesy at times but it's been good.

    The only problem with that Spoiler is GRRM has already confirmed (this year) that the ending will be almost exactly the same as the books. The only differences will be the secondary characters. I guess then you can start speculating who are the "secondary" characters.

    I started reading the books atleast 10 years before HBO. I have no problem saying the show is much better than the books.

    In his entire career, GRRM has written a total of 2 good books. And those 2 are a compilation, not 2 total books.... Book 1 (game of thrones) sucked until the last 1/4th. Book 2 was good. Book 3 was good in pieces. Books 4 and 5 were some of the worst books I have read.

    Why didn't Dany just fly up real high, go behind them, and burn every single ship? There is no way they could have turned around fast enough. All their scorpions were aimed forward with only so much movement.

    I know Martin supposedly told them the ending and that it is supposed to be similar but how they get their matters. The books still have the benefit of the doubt that all of these prophecies, secondary characters, and history can still come in to play. The books don’t even have a Night King like the show. Well they do but not in the same sense.

    I agree Book 4 was **** and 5 was only a little bit better but I really enjoyed books 1-3.

    I'm guessing you don't read many books, then. Sure, books 4 and 5 didn't live up to the first 3, but they are better than 90% of the fantasy books out there.
