    Most critics has an agenda behind their review, I stopped paying attention to them long ago, if it’s on Television or movies. Reading some of the summations of these bad reviews made me question who the hell pays some of those writers.

    I can understand episodes being a little divisive, but this specific episode being one of the worst received in the series in RT shows something’s broken.

    I haven’t read too many reviews, but almost all reactions I’ve seen for 8×02 have been very positive.

    Emmy voters must bend the knee to Lena Headey & Emilia Clarke for "Game of Thrones." It's their last chance to award them. Make it happen.

    I kinda wonder if Ned (if the dead come back) will be like: “Ok time to defend Winterfell” and lead the others in helping Jon and the others.

    Cue Lord of the Rings music and Jon Aragorning this shit up.

    well ned is just a head … so i dont think he will arise

    Actually, Ned’s head was sewed back onto his body. His remains weren’t shown in the show but the book describes how the silent sisters attached his head back before delivering his bones to Catelyn. He is nothing more than bones though. Rickon on the other hand…..

    I found interesting that the episode 8×02 had mixed reviews from critics and fans, but at the same time, I noticed many industry members praising this episode on Twitter: Stephen King, Ava DuVernay, Gennifer Hutchison, Kumal Nanjiani, Timothy Simmons, Beth Schwartz, Felicia Day, Orlando Jones, etc.

    I wouldn’t call 88% mixed reviews. GoT is probably the most nitpicked and overanalyzed show ever in history of TV. Everyone wants a particular something from the show. Everyone has his own expectations of the characters and their arcs. I saw a negative review of Ep 1 last week that commented on how GoT reverted back “female tropes” by pitting Sansa against Daenerys…only for that issue to be clarified in episode 2. There are reviewers out there who do not know how serialized story works.

    It’s also garnering way more reviews than the average TV show. For comparison, episode 1 of Handmaid’s Tale S2 had 20 reviews, whereas GoT S8 ep1 had almost 100 published reviews.

    Some people disliked this episode because they thought last week episode was necessary to build up a scenario for the battle (what I think it is wrong). But most people that liked this “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms” thought it was one of the best episodes of Game of Thrones ever. So there are a big love this week around GOT. Even purist book fans are praising the episode (well, at least the ones I didn’t blocked on twitter yet).

    I think episode 2 will age well among the fans, kind of like Mother’s Mercy.
    I don’t remember the reason back then, but I guess now the show has too much mainstream audience that don’t appreciate the old form and are just impatient for the big battle.
    When the mainstream audience will watch it after the series is complete I expect them to appreciate it a lot more.

    I just started rewatching from the beginning for the first time…and the amount of foreshadowing for the entire series is insane! My brain is short-circuiting. Every other minute I’m like “oh my god, that connects to something 5 years later!”

    That’s what happens when you have all the story laid out from 20 years ago!

    I have a feeling that no matter how next episode turns out .There will be complaints. Either they didn’t kill enough characters or they didn’t kill any of the main 7 (Excluding Cersei obviously. I don’t think any of the main 7 will die next episode.

    We’ve all made guesses as to who will die. But I’m curious to see, how many credited main cast members will realistically die next episode. I don’t believe they will kill half of the cast.

    I’m gonna say 4-6, a combination of anyone out of (Theon, Varys, Brienne, Grey Worm, Tormund, Bran and Jorah)

    With several recurring cast members rounding out the kill count.

    You are an homosexual, darling. Don’t lie yourself. If you were straight you wouldn’t be here.
