    I think EsOS may have not disliked the last season so much for many reasons, and it was also binge watching. One of the traumatizing things of the finale was the mind rape for many fans who watched it for years and had been invested in so many cool theories.

    The fact that I didn’t invest a decade of my life on this show definitely made the finale less disappointing for me and the separation between each season is kinda blurred

    I think this also helped Game of Thrones at the Emmys too. Different viewing patterns and scenarios, leaks, etc. had either people prepared or not as disappointed as others. I mean I’ve been watching the show since a few months before season six but I was prepared by the leaks for about a week or two, so I guess I really never took it as hard as a good amount of people in this forum. Granted my brother’s reaction goes against this and it’s kinda annoying lol. He acted like he had his whole life stolen from him and he legit started watching it two weeks before the season started lol.

    No way! He is faking that rage lol

    Yes, that’s pretty much it. People may react in a more or less intense way with a show ending when weighing the overall journey and how much time it took from their lives. Thank the gods for having full seasons released nowadays

    I disliked season 8 (though probably not as much as anyone else here) but absolutely hated Killing Eve lol. The fact that I didn’t invest a decade of my life on this show definitely made the finale less disappointing for me and the separation between each season is kinda blurred

    I actually have a very hard time seeing seasons 7 and 8 blurring together. Not only does 8 have a huge drop in quality, but it felt like the 7th season had set up quite a bit that doesn’t get properly followed through on, or in some cases is seemingly ignored. Such as how season 7 was blatantly hinting that Jon and Daenerys would have a child, when there’s not a single mention of it in season 8. Season 7 was also building up Cersei as a more genuine threat than she had been in earlier seasons. She usually had the vast majority of her plans blow up in her face, but her ruthlessness and lack of morals managed to score her some pretty significant wins in the penultimate season, even finally getting one over on Tyrion. Then in season 8, it turns out that she’s simply no match for Daenerys’ army, and loses the war in an embarrassingly one sided battle. There was also Jaime finally realizing just how awful Cersei is and deserting her in season 7, which was undone when he decides he’s a bad person and wants to die with her in season 8. Also, despite the fact that it started to snow in King’s Landing at the end of season 7, it looks just as sunny as always in season 8 (I’ll admit, that one’s a nitpick, but they shouldn’t have put that in if they were just gonna pretend it never happened). The conclusion of Sansa and Arya’s storyline in season 7 seemingly contrasts with their attitudes in season 8. After realizing how easily they were turning on each other, it seemed like they wouldn’t allow themselves to act so distrusting in the future, yet they both treat Daenerys and her forces like shit when they arrive, even though Dany is selflessly helping them. Also, I’d just like to say I’m pissed off that Dany and Arya never shared a scene together. I was really looking forward to their potential interactions. Back to business. After season 7 presented Jon and Daenerys as being a positive pairing, season 8 makes them out to be a rather toxic relationship. Jon’s inability to fully accept Daenerys is implied to be a factor in her growing madness, while his love for her ends up completely blinding him to his duty until it’s too late. So despite the fact that season 7 was seemingly building them up as a sort of power couple, season 8 shows Dany and Jon bringing out the worst in each other. One of the biggest examples is how Jon Snow is triumphantly revealed to be the rightful heir to the Iron Throne near end of season 7, but in season 8, not only does he never become King, he repeatedly rejects his true calling. There are probably other moments I could list, but I feel like I’ve mentioned enough to get my point across. I don’t know what exactly happened between the writing of seasons 7 and 8, but clearly the writers decided they wanted to go in a different direction then they had apparently been going before.

    I’d like to apologize for defending Pilou Asbæk on this forum earlier. While I still believe he did a good job with a bad role, I just found out that he’s responsible for the infamous “I’m the man who killed Jaime Lannister” line. Apparently Euron was supposed to silently die, but Asbæk kept intentionally messing up the takes until they’d let him talk. Pretty unprofessional behavior, especially for what ended up being quite possibly the lamest line of a very poorly written episode.

    I watched season 6-7-8 in legit 5 days so I really didn’t take enough time to process each seasons to make such a deep analysis.

    Yeah, I may have been exaggerating a bit lol but he did have a bigger reaction than me, aside from cringing really hard at Bran the Broken. I really don’t know how people survived without, at least, the first 5 seasons ready for them. I barely lasted the few months that I had to wait for season 6 lol.

    Killing Eve is for sure second in the drama race. It over-performed above the line and got the necessary creative arts nods (casting and editing), and Shaw’s nomination is a small indicator that it has more visibility/support among actors than BCS, This is Us, or Pose.

    It has basically the same nine nominations as Homeland when it won. Both got Series, Writing, Directing, double Lead, Casting and Editing. Homeland‘s last two were Sound Mixing and Theme; Killing Eve has Supporting and Production Design. Killing Eve is facing the most-nominated Drama Series nominee ever; Homeland had to deal with having fewer nominations than all of the other nominated Drama Series of its year.

    Man, I am less down on the final season than most but God this whole scene/arc was terrible.

    Really wish they hadn’t deviated so much from the books with all the Greyjoy stuff (I guess this could be said for most things…)

    Wow, can you imagine the film-bro meltdowns if Game of Thrones is upset by a female-centric lighthearted drama with lesbian themes?

    Imagine if Game of Thrones is upset by Pose, the actual best nominated series and a show about black queers and transgenders. I’d live.

    No matter the patterns, thinking GoT, which crashed last year’s THT, Crown and the etherial final season of the Americans (all endlessly superior shows to Killing Eve) with another mediocre season, will be upset by a mediocrity like Killing Eve is purely delusional. In fact Killing Eve is so overrated by these forums. It’s only winning Actress & Supporting Actress, and that’s because of the hilariously low competition in the drama categories this year.

    Which is ironic because…. the competition is actually better than Killing Eve in every single category.

    I just want to make something clear: I would murder for Lena to get her Emmy.

    On a more serious note, Lena simply cannot lose.
