    S08.E06: The Iron Throne

    I can tell you where I fall in relation to this show . I would have preferred that they left them out as opposed to a ddressing it in a brief scene that made no sense or introducing characters stuck in the same stereotypical roles. I do not need POC on a show in order to enjoy it..they can be the villain and not get a happy ending..I just need them to have great writing and not be there to just prop others. Again in the end Greyworm and Missandei were reduced to the angry black stereotypes ..but that is not my biggest complaint. None of the actions of most characters made sense or had gravity. Iam not mad because I did not get the ending I wanted..I am mad because the season was terrible and I would say that if either of those two were in power at the end and if they had sailed for Naath. Bad season a nd questionable writing. They did not have POC in Lord of the Rings or the c.s. lewis world either but they did not shoe them in to ignore or dumb them down either. In fantasy you can make it what you want. This show existed due to shock value more than anything

    Bran and tyrion planned some of this together in the long night. Bran can see the future and some things he knew would happen. He just had to manipulate tyrion and tyrion did the rest...including getting rid of Varys..that is my story and I am sticking to it! It is still ridiculous because if the unknown like Drogon's reaction

    I am just glad I was never a Star Wars fan.

    Killing Eve

    Yes, Unfortunately I am liking Eve less and less with each episode. I always liked the supporting characters and V more than Eve anyway....and unpopular opinion I actually don't mind the husband. When they moved the story to Eve being sexually excited by V or the things that she does and says, and away from her wanting to get justice for her victims they lost me. To top it off they changed teams this year. Her team last year was part of the fun and I will forever think they made a mistake killing Bill

    Game Of Thrones In The Media

    I know what you mean. I only started watching recently oddly because a friend from another country was listening to Raleigh Ritchie and asked me about Game of Thrones. I think i saw an episode years ago while visiting my sister at Christmas while her husband was watching. Outside of that,I really only knew about 3 people that watched the show, and none of them talked about it. I would see the references in the media or on other shows, but no one was talking about it at work the next day. Maybe it depends on where you work...I don't know. but to your point people do get caught up in thinking that Twitter and Instagram reflects a larger segment of the population than it actually does. I actually do remember more people talking about Seinfeld, but again that could be because that show was on network television and not a subscription. That in part is one of the reasons I never watched it, I had no desire to pay for HBO.

    Game Of Thrones In The Media

    Well, I think actors and actresses have got to learn that they can't only be happy when the fans like them. Bad reviews, upset fans, etc. is, part of the game. The same disappointed fans are the same fans that were giving them attention and boosting their profiles, allowing the show to continue and them to book other projects. For me, other than some vets and a few others, the acting on this show by some of the biggest characters was never that great, they were literally learning to act as the show went on. I came in on the end so if they are still that bad then I can only imagine the first few seasons. Clearly the people signing the petition are just venting, and that takes nothing away from the hard work of people behind the scenes, etc. Saying they are disappointed for those people is pointless because those people are not praised or recognized anyway...they know the fans are not criticizing the BTS people, they are just taking it personally. The actors are not responsible for the writing, they just ha a job to do. Most of us get that, but they have to also understand fans don't have to like the writing for this season just because other seasons had better writing or they liked the show before. Each episode/season is its own and each scene its own performance. Some people will like it, some people won't. It is done and over, and Lord knows why they made some decisions that they did, but responding to the fans disappointment is not the way to go. Truth is had Twitter, etc. existed back in the day I am sure plenty of other shows would have gotten the same treatment. All I can say is I am glad I am not a Star Wars fan.

    S08.E06: The Iron Throne

    So now we know what Bran and Tyrion were talking about during the Long Night...as well as Sansa and Tyrion. I totally think this was planned...or Tyrion got some idea. I am not convinced that Dany was not being drugged with mind altering drugs. She was so busy watching Varys that they were not watching Tyrion closely. Tyrion got rid of Varys, and it is not coincidental that he is the brains behind Bran's straw king, and Sansa is the Queen with what she wanted all along. He knew Jon was weak and easily manipulated and he was already having doubts about Dany. Dany was stupid anyway to ever trust him. He had an emotional connection to Kings Landing ,with or without his brother and sister still being there. It was where he grew up, had memories, now way he was going to do anything really against the city. I still have not bothered to listen to whatever conversation he and Jon had. In the short time I've watched this show I have not been impressed with Peter Dinklage and his endless droning on was actually a turn off for me.

    Killing Eve

    I am so bored by this season. I do not even know what creepy does for a living..but if it is anything tech related then they should expect he would be watching and listening ....and he gave it away at the dinner. Therefore I cannot understand why V is talking out loud to Eve and I am not entertained by her being turned on by V. It is almost like the fact that she killed Bill didn't happen for Eve. Also there is no way V can keep pretending with this guy and would not have already snapped on him.

    S08.E06: The Iron Throne

    Greyworm was traumatized and suffering PTSD...he was also grieving. He had clearly snapped. Apparently according the writers Dany was always cruel and crazy. Greyworm has always just followed orders. I hear you.....he used the fact that she was giving orders to justify what he was doing...but at the end of the day he was a trained killer. Of course Arya gets praise for being a trained killer ruthlessly killing people who wronged her.. under orders to no one.....the Unsullied not so much. even though they are following orders

    S08.E06: The Iron Throne

    And Sansa talking about the Northern men being ready to fight....the same ones who needed the Unsullied and Dothraki to fight the White Walkers, and who watched them sacrificed themselves, first out with Jorah and then protecting the retreat. Not to mention they also participated in the violence in the city...but now of course it is all the minorities' fault and they are just being honorable and ready to stand against the savages....

    S08.E06: The Iron Throne

    Jamie may have loved and helped him but he never really stood up for him in front of other people and if Cersei had been in a Room with the 2 of them and told him to kill him he would have. And know thank goodness I have not watched all seasons to "remember" the good times. My husband was the Seinfeld watcher and I laughed and felt no pity for him with that ending

    Maybe I missed it in my haste to fast forward through most of this dumpster fire, but why was she writing it and not his beloved brother?

    Time has also not changed the perspective on that final either..still crap

    S08.E06: The Iron Throne

    So Drogon had his own mind enough to burn the throne, but not to burn anything else after Dany was dead? He had sense enough to rescue her from that pit without being told, but now without her guiding him he just goes off and stops burning things?

    S08.E06: The Iron Throne

    Yes, but Unsullied were raised to not care about dying. Greyworm had lost everything..what logically did he care about that would have prevented him from quickly killing both of them while they were in captivity and just taking the consequences? Their life expectancy was not high before or after Dany acquired them and I am sure he never expected to live long an prosper...why not go out fighting, that is what they trained for their whole lives. Lazy writing that did not make any sense.....

    S08.E06: The Iron Throne

    Really, Davos who wanted to give the little slaves some land for most of them losing their lives in the Long Night (and only because they were outnumbered) and tells them to raise families, when they have been cut and can't raise families??!!! WTF ever He was saying what he needed to save his and everyone else's ......a

    You are thinking too much. Watching this season requires suspension of your senses...didn't you get the memo?

    S08.E06: The Iron Throne

    So moving my thoughts over from the live thread... Little Lyanna..the hardest one on the show died for THIS??!! Tyrion finding his bother and sister in all this and being upset....when they have plotted against him pretty much his whole life, especially Cersei. Jaimie may have helped him here and there, but it was always behind Cersei's back, not out in the open Grey worm waits for the white man to give Jon and Tyrion justice when he was previously just randomly killing people without honor on the streets...and he does not know these people, trust them or owe them anything? But he all of a sudden thinks they are going to do the right thing? Never forgive the writers for not giving Grey worm a body to take back to the beaches of Naath... So Bran..who can see the past, future, etc, did not see himself getting the throne? He literally does nothing and gets the greatest reward? He was NO HELP during the battle planning for all of his "knowledge." D& D give us a preview of what their Confederate show would have been like by having Davos offer the freed slaves, " a little piece of nice land," as a thank you for their service...when they literally have not acknowledged previously the sacrifices they made at Winterfell for nothing.....1865...Reconstruction... Yara Greyjoy is the only person who stands up for Dany after all is said and done? Other than Greyworm.... Arya sitting there threatening to kill somebody when they are literally sitting there judging somebody for killing people.... I just can't....full disclosure I fast forwarded through a lot of this as it was just trash. I know long time viewers love Peter Dinklage, but I don't get the love! Too much stupidity to process.....but all the Stark's got their happy endings...
