    Some people here have to accept that some of us here didn’t let the episode. We’re not “haters”. We love this goddamn show, and the current direction is killing some of us because we want the best for GoT.

    The backlash for this episode is more overwhelming than ever, but I seem to care the least about it in this case since for the first time it feels a little earned.
    Not that the episode was remotely bad, I thought it was the best of the season, but months before the season started I always knew that the point where Daenerys goes crazy is where the fanbase will be divided 50/50. The previous 2 weeks came as a complete surprise to me.

    At this point I’m really hoping for a Drama series win, hoping the Academy won’t be influenced by the buzz. and Directing, of course. Unfortunately I can’t really see Benioff and Weiss winning Writing, and also not stealing too much votes from Sapochnik from the exact same reason. As for Nutter, none of his episodes were attractive enough to split votes from Sapochnik, unlike Season 7’s episodes for example.
    I wouldn’t expect too much from the acting branch, since we know they don’t really like GoT. Dinklage deserves his win IMO, which is the only one that might actually happen. As for Creative Arts- they should win more than they ever won for this season.

    IT is sad that they turn Dany into a mass murderer but in the concept of the world of ice and fire what Dany did was the same that the Lannister did with the Sack of KL and what Aegon The Conqueror did at Harrenhall. IT was all Cersei’s fault.

    The Oscar needs to get rid of the preferential ballot so it can name a deserving movie as Best Picture again.

    Yes I understand this 100%. And I agree that it’s the worst season, BUT it’s clearly not as bad as people says it is. There’re so much worst TV shows with better RT score and that piss me off.

    It’s like you copy-paste the same message for every single episode.

    Also, it’s a little funny that the most active users in each of the GoT threads is the nay-sayers. I’ve always said negativity screams way louder than positivity

    LOL at the reactions; this love/hate “twist” division will be fun to read.

    I honestly left all hope since season 7 when they just dragged Dany through the mud with all of her losses. When the north treated her like shit, I sensed she was gonna snap. However, yesterday she was overpowered AF. I mean Drogon didn’t even had a scratch!!! Lol

    The issue here is that the Starks at this point are sooooo boring that I cannot relate to them and I am waiting a finale where they’ll be like “OMG I told you so, we’re so wholesome, kill the bitch Jon”, who by the way at this point is a glorified extra who hasn’t done shit. Except for that “shocking” scene people are waiting in the finale lol

    At least Emilia is coming out a winner from this ending acting-wise. Happy for her

    D&D did better by the female characters in Game of Thrones than Martin ever did.
    Your attachment to Danny, Cersei, Sansa etc is based on the likability of the actors’ performance and the shows writing. D&D are rushing to the endgame and fulfilling Martin’s arc. So yes, his problematic arcs for the female characters.

    Looks like everyone has a degree in psychiatry in here and knows the right way to go crazy. In real life some people give no signs before committing horrific acts. The idea that emotions need to be an easy and slow transitional thing is unfounded because human nature is freaking complex making people unpredictable. It can be a snap change when someone experiences grief, rejection or loneliness. Dany has shown flashes of rage throughout the whole show but it seems it was too subtle for some people. If you want your “villain” to be set up in a certain fashion then what happened to originality and creativity?

    I understand that Dany’s arc HAD to come to this. She was always destined to be the mad queen, and I believe this was GRRM’s 3rd twist. However, the show usually does well in building up to a twist. The Red Wedding was heart wrenching because even though we knew it was a possibility, the show was also placing enough distractions to keep us hopeful until we aren’t. Same thing with Ned Stark’s beheading.

    Dany’s flipping somehow did not feel as earned as The Red wedding or Ned Stark’s death. Her burning everything did not make sense. She was winning and was already inciting fear on all the innocent lives. I did not get what “woke” the dragon up. She was burning and crucifying enemies left and right before this, but she always had a heart for the oppressed.

    What are your thoughts on Arya? On one hand, I was okay with her dying because she did a stupid and foolish thing to go after Cercei, so being punished would make sense, but on the other hand, I’m looking forward to her confronting Daenerys, considering the fact that she saw what actually happened.

    Anyone else disappointed that she didn’t get to use any faces this season? For the sake of the story, she might have done it, but who knows.

    Blaming GRRM, not D&D is the most ridiculous thing ever.

    Who is the worst character in GoT? My vote is Euron. That guy had zero character development. At least, we got to know why Ramsay and Joffrey were dicks, but Euron just acting out as a 40 year old bully was nonsensical. What was his main motivation? Having sex with Cersei? Lol. Also, he went from overpowered pirate to suddenly a limp creature. He was able to scour the ocean for Dany and Yara, plan ahead and wait for the right time to attack, but somehow did not prepare for Dany’s attack after they killed Missandei and Rhaegal. And that fight scene and sudden obsession with Jaime just came out of nowhere. He is the deus ex machina of villains, appearing out of nowhere and being weak all of a sudden for plot convenience.

    I always like your posts. I guess the “reasoning” we’ll hear is that she is just mad and she’s always been because it saves time.

    I would like to have seen more on that shift she had from being resentful on why Westeros fails to value her and her decision to rule by fear. The two people closest to her are gone, and I like that angle, that she had a team who brought out the best in her, what happens when they die?

    Because Tyrion and Varys were the shittiest employees ever, and they were supposed to know Westeros like the palm of their hands.

    I actually agree with blaming GRRM. He gave his story to 2 novice showrunners and didn’t even check if they could write a good story in the absence of material. I mean, one of them was responsible for the worst Wolverine story ever that needed to be rewritten by somebody else because it was so bad.

    GRRM is the only one to blame.
