I'm still upset at this episode and the writers for caring more about shock value than decent storyline and dialog.
I feel better after watching some after shows and episode reviews on youtube as well as reading some discussion/rants on reddit but both are always filled with people posting spoiler information so not a good option if you don't want to deal with that.

I read /freefolk a lot which is FULL of leaks and spoilers. And as of right now I'm not very happy. I'm 100% fine with a bad ending and everyone miserable. It's just how it gets there that matters. Hopefully GRRM will finish the books and give me what I want lol!

:) Yes when those books come out we get to see how it should have ended.

I enjoy /freefolk helps me calm down when I'm stressed both after the episode and just in general lately, gonna miss the memes when the show ends.

My phone is full of memes from there, lol!
THe leaks have me worried but at the same time how true are they? HBO has kept a tight ship. The leaks that were supposed to be true for battle of winterfell weren't. sooo..who knows.

I checked out some more, hadn't looked at them in a while and as usual most seem plausible, someone mentioned that it is possible the leaker mixed up Dany and Cersei in some of the leaks as the leaker wasn't a 'fan'. If true it might make the potential ending better IMO anyway, but even doing that some of them don't make sense if you swap Dany/Cersei for all the leaks about those characters.

We'll just have to wait and see only 2 more left. :smow:

Book!Jon would have never treated Ghost like that. Show!Jon sucks.
It's because the scene needed to be "streamlined". Whatever. They spend what feels like hours of awkward conversation with weirdo Bran, but can't figure out that fans would actually want to see a goodbye to the battle damaged direwolf?

Exactly. And at this point, I would have been fine with them just getting a regular ole white dog that's big and using it instead of getting a CGI HUGE Ghost. At least we would have gotten more Ghost. :(

The problem with the show as it is now (apart that they're glossing over so many things in an attempt to simply end the story) is the weak characterization. Certain traits (Tyrion, clever and resourceful; Bran, wise and otherworldly) have been reduced to, in a dialogue sense, signs hung about their neck with the writers hoping that you don't notice that they've done fuck-all lately. It's a challenge untangling the mess that GRRM left behind, but the story deserved better than this.

tldr; i mad and gost was goodest puppers

I really hope we get the books soon and it makes, however, this show ends worth it.

I really wanted Dany to be Nissa Nissa tho. One more episode. I doubt D&D can turn it around. I think they're more interested in Star Wars. :(

Could be a rumour, but the actor who played Barristan said that George was actually done with the next 2 books and was waiting for the series to be over before releasing them.


Personally, I wouldn't be surprised if Daenerys ends up being the mad queen in the books. They've been foreshadowing this for a long time, but the show went from her being lukewarm to inferno in 20 minutes. I really wish they weren't rushing this last season :(

Maybe I'm just a horrible person, but the disappointment of all the people that somehow thought this was going to have a Disney ending is much sweeter than the show itself.

Me too!! I feel like I could get behind Dany being a Mad Queen if they didn't rush it. They could have ten episodes. They could have plenty of budget. THey didn't want to. UGH.

I hope that my love Barristan is right. I need those books. Now.

I don't think anyone thought this show would have a Disney ending though. I expect a crap ending. But I also expect the crap ending to be lead up to with good storyline and not rushed.
