Game of Thrones Discussion [Spoilers]

  • @Haru17 This season was shortened too.

  • @TokyoSlim Lol, I noticed.

  • @Haru17 Prepare for six more episodes. :)

  • @Haru17

    Benjen is unconfirmed tbf.

  • @Hazz3r I think it was just rushed to conclude his character arc.

  • @Haru17 Hordor is still alive as well, don't forget. He's still holding that door.

  • All I can say is that if ppl kept dying at the rate they were before we would have no characters left. The only thing I didn't like is the horrible pacing of the episodes. This was an issue in other seasons at times too where I would think to myself if your so crunched for time to fit story in, why are you wasting so much if on pointless drawn out scenes.

    As for where the story is headed. GRRM said that many ppl already predicted things such as the John and Daenerys romance and who Johns parents are. Saying that he wouldn't change it just because ppl predicted it because that's the story he wanted to tell. From what I've heard and maybe I'm wrong isn't there more ppl alive in his books then there are in the show? It sucks that he hasn't finished the books to go along with the show but I'm not sure the show would be much different then now. I fully expect that the creators had conversations with GRRM to fully grasp the direction of the story.

    Lastly as for the show becoming predictable, it's been on long enough where things don't feel the same and we know how it works. the story is now focused on the end game snd unfortunately you can't be creating more story threads. Things need to come together now.

  • It's here...

  • Well that was a pretty good 1st episode.

  • The episode was good per se, but pretty uneventful considering we only have six episodes this season. Basically we just checked where everyone were now. But sure, now that we've established that and laid some groundwork for the season hopefully things start moving in a brisk pace now. Jon finally reached his "endgame" on character level as he found out about his true heritage, that should get things moving. And Jaime returning to Winterfell after all that time and remembering and reacting to his S1 "push" felt nice.

  • Well, we also got Dragon riding. That was pretty neat.

    Speaking of which:
