    The last couple of seasons have been bad, but in regard to your points about Dany and Jamie, both are the resolutions you should probably expect from the books. Dany has shown glimpses of this persona the whole time, and from episode 4 it was pretty clear where this was going in regard to both her and Cersei. For Jamie, GRR Martin has said that he used Jamie to explore whether redemption is even possible if your crime is particularly bad (or perceived to be so by those around you). The real issue with the show now is it is all so rushed, I am sure if they adopted the pace of the first 5 seasons, the end points that these characters have reached would be a lot of more satisfying.

    The writers have butchered this season in all honesty. Still going to watch next week obviously but I think there's going to be more questions than answers at the end of it.

    Arrrrgh I’m just so annoyed at how * this season has been.

    Good fight scenes and graphics but the storyline has been butchered. It’s as if it’s just for a casual American audience :99:

    Absolute joke compared to the other seasons.

    They’ve completely thrown away any logic and ruined characters, all in the name of action and “subverting expectations”.

    You know it’s bad when even some of the actors have slagged it off.

    Does anyone else feel like HBO have brought Neil Lennon in as the caretaker writer for season 8?

    Best hour and a half of television I’ve ever seen.

    Incredible episode. Right up there with the Battle of the *. Don’t think I took a breath until it finished.

    'Member when Cersei was the big bad and always has been?

    Yeah, about that.......

    They * over the night king, now they * over Cersei, for what? For a binge Ging and a little white hair girl with a scaly big bird have a little * contest. While two dark haired midgets and one blonde midget try and become the hero's.

    Bring back Stannis the Mannis.

    He did and it was really disappointing. Disappointing because they could have easily did the same thing but make Jaime struggle like * , cough up blood etc. There has been lots of wee simple things like that. Made worse because there are better ways to do it. Trying not to poke holes in bits and just enjoy it for what it is but things like that are hard to ignore. Or just make him get less injured in the fight? Been thinking about it for minutes and already got two much better ways of doing it. I did really enjoy the episode as a whole though and it flew by because I was enjoying it so much. Music excellent again as per

    After Cersei ordering the murder of Missandei right in front of Daenerys I think it would have been better for Daenerys to burn her alive, to make it more personal.

    On another note, Euron Greyjoy gets his own personal fight scene but the White Walkers can’t get one whilst walking through Winterfell.

    I’m still loving it as it’s Game of Thrones at the end of the day, but if they’d hired me then they could have made it much better imo.

    Danys actions made no * sense. This show needed atleast another season.
