yeah seriously....either TV's are too good these days or that shit should have been thought out better.

Honestly I thought something was wrong with my cable connection...but the "brighter" scenes looked fine

I watch it at a buddy's house and his set up is decent but it was strugggggling to get through. We had to stop halfway through and screw with the settings to get it a little more tolerable. Even on my TV at home (which is color calibrated cause nerd life) was having banding issues with the dark scenes.

Everything about that episode was bad. Man this show really puttered out after 5 seasons as one of the best in TV history.

I was expecting a much higher "major" character body count. Too many key names got plot armored out of guaranteed deaths.

I was expecting a coherent episode and one which didn't end THE main storyline of the show (since the prologue to episode 1) in a neat little package so that we can now turn our attention to Cersei and her nu metal boyfriend.

I feel completely robbed.

Also no ice spiders? No Ghost? No cool new battle tactics surprise?

Nope, just hordes of mindless zombies... Again.

Didn't even see any White Walkers do anything cool. All of them in one spot with endless opportunities to brutally maim main characters and nah.

Lots of missed opportunities that didn't make sense to me. Like when the trench was lit, they should have had the dragons just going back and forth toasting the entire line. Instead they just let them stand there.

This too.....I couldn't believe one major character didn't get it in that battle

Can we talk about "I Think You Should Leave" instead?

The bones are their money! So are the worms!

Agree..... thought it was too simple to be wrapped up like that

Yet again I completely agree with everything dscrape said. Such a let down

Not all that interested in seeing how poorly they handle the conclusion of the show now either

Do you guys wear matching pajamas and then have a snack before falling asleep in your sleeping bags on the living room floor to?

Fuck all of you. None of you have friends in real life.

I have many friends, and a solid core group of friends who have been my best friends since sixth grade. We have a group text and speak several times a week, and I see them all roughly once a month for various social occasions.

Friends are far too much work. I rather sit in my basement and watch shitty BBC period pieces on netflix.

I too am concerned about the Azor prophecy. I also thought there would be a higher main body count. However, I did enjoy the episode.

Here are some of my issues with it:

No actual battle with the night king. It was just hardhome stare down part 2

Bran just being used as bait then nothing happens with that. So the whole thing about him becoming the 3 eyed raven just doesn’t mean anything besides him knowing johns lineage (which Sam found out anyway)

I expected winterfell to be left in ruin. Ice dragon took down the fucking wall and it basically did nothing to the castle

EDITS TO SAY THERE ARE GAME OF THRONES SPOILERS BELOW





Yeah, but the night king always kind of doesn’t battle. He’s a leader but not a warrior. It seemed like the episode confirmed he’s a Targaryen at least. I agree that him (weakly) throwing his javelin and that’s it was lame.

I think Bran’s story arc is falling limp in the show, but I also think there are a lot of things that don’t translate well from written word to actually creating it on screen.

Anyway, I enjoyed Beric, Theon, the Red Woman, and Jorah’s portions completely. As well as the Hound’s.

I mean technically Arya be Azor and we all have been wrong in assuming Jon. That could be why they gave her a lover (Gendry), and the heart of a lion could be Nymeria who’s still alive or a Lannister... and there was the whole thing about Gendry taking a long time to make her special weapon. It’s not a sword, but still. But idk with all the dragon stuff related to Azor it makes much more sense for it to be a Targ.
