Episodes seemed way too rushed. This season probably should of been 10 episodes long. We spent forever building up to this and now we’re fast tracked towards the end.
I guess Wildings are the new Red Shirts.
The other problem is how retarded the plan was to get “zombie”. This is an idea I expect from GRG Staff or one of GRG’s members. Just a bad idea anyway you thought of it. While they were at it, they had Thoros dying. Just wait until he turns and drag his ugly ass back to King’s Landing.
Arya and Sansa. WTF? First off, Arya threatening to take Sansa’s face and be her… How is that even possible, Arya is like a good foot shorter. Not sure how that would work. Second issue, Arya is supposed to be this human lie detector. They even play this game. She can’t tell Sansa is telling the truth???
Littlefinger basically started all this, are we ever going to see him return back to the main schemer? I can’t imagine he just goes out like a chump like we’re all expecting. If so it’s really weak.
Gendry would whoop Usain Bolt’s ass. Fastest runner EVAR!!! Period
I’m glad Tormund lived. I was really worried they were going to kill him for that “shocker” death. He needs to live and bang Brienne of Tarth so they have monster babies that conquer the world.
That whole thing of Gendry running back. Sending a raven to Dany and Dany and Dragons getting to Jon Snow in a day or two??? Come on. Weak. Traveling time has always been poorly portrayed on this show but I think this episode was the worst example.
White Walker: Bet you can’t hit that dragon.
Night King: Hold my beer
Poor Viserion. We kind of expected a dragon to be killed and turned, especially seeing the undead polar bear earlier (and horses). It’s going to suck being on the wall and having to defend against that. Does he still shoot flames? Or Ice? Or blue flames?
While I enjoyed this episode a lot I felt it wasn’t one of the better ones. The Plot rushing, too many story lines and the predictability bring it down. Even the repetitiveness. The undead circling Jon Snow and Co. was just like the Battle of the Bastards.
I’m curious on how they do the next episode. It seems like all the major action will wind down as all the players go to King’s Landing for a meeting that might be more exciting than a GRG Staff Meeting. Maybe Viserion and the Night King fuck up Eastwatch (or a castle on the wall) and break through to end the show.
