What a disappointing night.
GoT - I saw the poison thing coming as soon as they kissed. I thought the nudity with Cercei was much more than needed, especially considering that they were having issues when filming (I think in Croatia) because of it. I guess they were trying to show her vulnerable and ruled over and shamed, and I'm sure in real life it wouod very much be, but here it just seemed... meh. I had hoped to see the face of the mountain clegane as well. The scenes with Arya were the best I thought, especially in the brothel, though as I think back over the season I'm frustrated with how little happened.. in pretty much all the storylines. Still dob't know what's up with Jorah.. can you not transmit the greyskin this early or what? and after Dany was touched, both her suave lover guy and the friend girl were also touched... Good bye, Jon Snow.. I was glad it was Brienne of Tarth to kill Stannis, though I think a TON OF PEOPLE and reviewers (you can't be both) are completely wrong about him.. he deserved no mercy or defense, but he did not do all this stuff the last couple weeks out of greed or lust for power.. are you people not watching this show? listening to the dialogue.. glad 'reek' finally helped Sansa, though of course it was the girl he stopped and not Ramsay.. that thud when the girl hit the ground was pretty sick sounding though
I guess I have a polar oppossite reaction. Everything about the last episode made me wonder what was going to happen in the next season. Also, everyone other than the white walkers, the Boltons and the High Sparrow (the only people I really really hate on the show) are left looking defeated or in question.
While I do think most of these trendy dramas today use too much unnecessary violence, sex, and "class warfare" (for lack of a better term) I thought Cersies punishment was done well. It seems exactly like the punishment an organization like the High Sparrows would give to her...and it seemed brutal to me. I really felt for her. I think the mountain with his helmet on just adds more suspense for next season .
Im confused about Stannis and John's deaths. Both seemed to have really incomplete story lines, and Stannis' death was a bit ambiguous. Even if they are both dead, I think there is still a lot more story to be gotten from them that will manifest. I guess if stannis is dead, it may as well be by Brienne. Not happy how John died though.
I saw the Lannister girls death coming as soon as she was happy and hugged Jamie...that's an obvious telegraph someone will die. I didn't see it comming before that though.
I agree with you on Arya. She was one of my favorite stories until this season. Her story really dragged. Not sure what the payoff with Jorah and his disease will be, though I've been wondering about that.
