Nice catch, those credits are not a great sign!
This book was incredible. It was supposed to be adapted into an A-list movie a long time ago, but it was lost to development hell. So it’s finally back, but as a NatGeo series, so this calls for.. reserved excitement? Obviously Marguiles in the lead role is a major positive.May 20, 2019 at 1:00 pm #1202901818
I was moving forward Jan. I don’t have time to waste. I’ve watched about 6min of the entire episode. Dany’s death, and the last sequences mainly.
Sorry, but you can’t say that you don’t have time to waste on watching an episode of a TV show, while at the same time posting 64 times in the thread about that TV show.May 19, 2019 at 10:02 pm #1202900519
Interesting. I couldn’t even finish Season 2, but, that trailer looks so different, it’s kind of tempting.May 19, 2019 at 8:47 pm #1202900415
Jon is a Targaryen, and we saw Drogon is fond of him.
There’s lots of people I’m fond of, but if they killed my mother, that would change pretty quick
As for Grey Worm, it was stated in the episode that killing Jon would have invoked another War between the unsullied and the other houses. Nobody wants that
I guess? I can’t buy Grey Worm becoming a politician all of a sudden in that moment. He was a soldier and he was ride-or-die Daenerys. Also not entirely sold that executing a ‘queenslayer’ would incite a war, whether the writers say so or not.May 19, 2019 at 8:21 pm #1202900369
Man. It seems like everyone hated last week’s episode, while I quite enjoyed it. I was even mostly OK with this whole season for the most part. But now I have to join the hate train. The finale was extremely disappointing. Certainly, to me anyway, the entire series was about Daenerys’ journey more than anything, and in the final episode, after eight seasons of her going from nothing to the top of the world, she is quickly dispatched so that Bran freaking Stark can be anointed?? WHAT? Maybe that would play better in the books, but in the TV series, Bran Stark is not even a top 20 character. People who thought the Dany character was done dirty last week? Hell no, she was done dirty THIS week.
I couldn’t fathom.. basically anything that transpired at that meeting of the lords, and I can’t fathom why any of them thought Bran would be a good king. I also cannot fathom how, with Grey Worm as a de facto leader for weeks, how Jon Snow is still alive and not a flayed corpse. Between that and the dragon not killing him, he has shattered all records for plot armor. And that small council meeting was painful. Especially that book, I was aghast when they pulled out THAT book. What are these writers doing??
It wasn’t all bad. Sansa’s and Arya’s endings were nice.
Hey, it’s hard to nail the landing of such a massive story like this. I’ll still have very fond memories of GoT. But this episode is gonna leave a bad taste for awhile.May 15, 2019 at 8:25 pm #1202895703
Episode two just continues with the high quality of the premiere. And Harris and Skarsgard got to do more. Great series, should be nominated across the board.May 15, 2019 at 5:14 pm #1202895549
Wow. SO funny, and a emotional punch I didn’t see coming. This was the best episode of Veep and one of the best series finales ever. Not just the dialogue and the performances, but it wrapped up the series and the characters SO well. Selina got what she wanted, but sold her soul in every way possible (each one more stunning than the last!), in the process completely wiping out her inner circle. It couldn’t have been more perfect.
JLD is now a stone cold lock for the Emmy if she wasn’t already, clearly her best performance in the series. The cast as a whole is such a collection of talent, but the one I’m really rooting for to finally break through with a win is Chlumsky, it would be well deserved.May 12, 2019 at 8:55 pm #1202891133
My baby Drogon really earned some scooby doo snacks. Boy worked overtime!!!!
Haha yes. He was so inactive during the battle at Winterfell I had it in my head that maybe the dragons need to rest/recover after blowing some fire. Definitely not the case!!May 12, 2019 at 8:30 pm #1202891102
Dany didn’t go mad because of those stupid bells. She decided when she talked with Jon that she’d have to rule through fear. When she heard the bells she knew it was the point of no return. She decides to kill everyone to make sure they all fear her, rather than show mercy like Tyrion and Jon asked.
Exactly. Her leadership was falling apart before it even started. This was a calculated decision, she did not lose her shit for no reason. It must be frustrating for the writers when they literally spell stuff out with dialogue and still most people miss it.May 12, 2019 at 8:27 pm #1202891092
About time Jodie Comer won a major award!May 12, 2019 at 8:12 pm #1202891051
She already was inspiring fear when she burnt an entire navy and an entire army with a dragon almost single-handedly. She didn’t need to inspire any more fear than that, and killing 500,000 people for no reason inspires hate, not fear, because it shows that even if you are loyal and afraid, it won’t matter because you’ll die anyways.
You’re not getting it. Killing just enough people to win the battle is what a ‘good’ military leader would do. That does not inspire fear in the populace. Dany is establishing that if you cross her in any way, you will get absolutely massacred.May 12, 2019 at 8:02 pm #1202891017
So, because she wants to rule by fear, she massacres 500,000 people despite already inspiring enough fear to make them all surrender? That doesn’t make sense.
Um, no. Surrendering is a tactical decision, that’s a lot different than being terrified of a leader. And she needs the whole world to fear her, not just King’s Landing.
