    I haven’t heard anyone other than you who thinks that Jon and Arya’s reunion was unexciting, and I really don’t know what your problem with Sam and Jon is.

    I was talking about the Sam and Jon confrontation having the multiple examples, but Wattsgold (literally several posts above) and Riley (in the old thread) are two examples of the Arya/Jon. It was rushed and Harington’s acting didn’t help, but you’ve already stated that you think it’s his best acting since BotB so you clearly don’t agree. This was talked about last night. Was it really necessary to make this post when I already said I didn’t have anything else to add to this overextended convo?

    I don’t know if was Isaac (Bran) or the writer, someone said they put humour in this episode because the next ones will be pretty dark, so they wanted make a balance in the tone.

    Seriously. A bunch of major characters are going to die in 2 weeks. Let the show have fun with them while they still can.

    Well, assessing how each fandom is behaving people will laugh a lot depending on who dies. So we will have dark humor.

    I hope so because that was a little too much humor for me, especially when the army of the dead is literally on the same side of wall as them.

    The levity in the premiere was more than welcome in my book. Tormund’s “my eyes were always blue!” line killed it here lol. The bleakness will come soon enough.

    That line was hilarious but completely out of place in that scene IMO. That scene was supposed to scare us, and while it did to a certain extent, the buildup could have been so much better had it not been for the jokes. These men just saw the wall crashing down, not sure jokes are appropriate.

    I totally agree about the necessity of having the calm before the storm, but then it needs to feel natural and not forced.

    Oh God, yeh, that waterfall scene where Daenerys is like let’s stay here forever. What? Bitch, you have an iron throne to conquer, eyeroll. The non-chemistry and the randomness was out of this world.

    That scene made me roll my eyes. Fanservice at its worst.

    Each time I see something about Sansa being treasonous I just have to roll my eyes. There’s also something called character development and it has been occurring with her.

    The Sansa hate is sooo tired. Are these people still living in 2011 or what ? Homegirl has been making a lot of points but since she’s doesn’t ride dragons, burn people or slit throats it’s cool to hate on her

    Omg no. She’s the worst character on the show. Even if Lena is a good actress, I just can’t stand Cersei and it would be the worst finale EVER if she win. The entire series would be destroyed forever if that happens.

    Cersei is one crazy, evil bitch, but still she’s so understandable. The world is unjust and because of that she lost all of her children. When you become a parent, your life’s purpose is redefined. Joffrey aside, Myrcella and Tommen’s deaths marked her. She did what she had to do to secure herself justice. Would a person with common sense blow up the Sept of Baelor, probably not lol, but she’s progressed as a character as well; who would have thought she’d become such a strategist. Put yourself in her shoes; imagine some foreigner coming and threatening to take away your home just because they like to and feel entitled to do so. The “let our enemies kill each other” is smart, though I don’t think she’s realised the Night King is unstoppable and coming for blood. Now, do I want her to win the game, no, but she’s had her fair share of achievements as well, using simply strategy and power, not dragons, no masks, no resurrections, and deserves credit for that.

    According to HBO, Sunday’s episode drew a live+same-day TV audience of 11.8 million. Up from the 10.1 million drawn by the seventh season premiere, the figure represents the show’s second-best linear TV performance. Only the season seven finale (12.1 million) drew a better live+same-day number.

    HBO notes that the linear TV number was likely hurt by the Dish carriage dispute.

    Also, this number is the live TV audience, in all combined platforms it had like half a million viewers more.
    Still a bit disappointing, but understandable that a lot of people are switching from watchin on TV to streaming.

    All the people I know watched it on a streaming website for free… probably like A LOT of people so… number views doesn’t mean anything in 2019.

    That line was hilarious but completely out of place in that scene IMO. That scene was supposed to scare us, and while it did to a certain extent, the buildup could have been so much better had it not been for the jokes. These men just saw the wall crashing down, not sure jokes are appropriate.

    This is the first time I’m reading about that scene being inappropriate. IMO, it was perfectly timed. It was scripted so that it would seem like a joke to us, but to the characters that wasn’t the case. The humor made the scare from that Umber boy even better. It somewhat made you think things were fine and then out of nowhere the dead boy reanimated. Typical setup for a scare really. I’m just glad the writers made those decisions.

    This season is supposed to be dark. I’m glad they gave us some time to see the characters in this light one last time before things go down. I thought it was a great table-setting episode. It was like reconnecting with old friends, but at the same time it gave us enough material to know where things are headed.

    It was funny. Lighten up. Not the end of the world whatsoever. Yet.

         People watching on a streaming website are irrelevant.   HBO gets nothing from that.
