I have zero emotions right now.
It's Dexter season 8 again.

I'm kind of grateful it's bad in a way that makes me laugh. I probably couldn't afford to be angry at this trainwreck.

It's a
transition episode
, so it was bound to have a strange rythm. I really liked most of it,
I found the twenty first minutes boring, until Dany and Jon's face to face, but I guess we had to go through it.
Varys and Tyrion discussions were the highlight. The great call-back to season 1 is Jon f-ing everything because, well, honour, just like Ned did. I went in rooting for Sansa more than Dany, and the episode changed my perspective. I understand Dany's anger, and am ready to see her in mad-mode. Also, maybe this is the only way to beat Cersei.
Cersei was always going to push her enemies in their darkest corners, and that's why she's such a great villain. Even if she's defeated, the price to pay may seem to much.
I like what they did with Jaime, I think life is much like that, you try, and try, and it only takes one choice, one minute, to fall again. Many people who die from an addiction die when they go back to it, one depressing night, after having done all the efforts to escape it. It's of course terribly frustrating to see Jamie go back, but it is the point.
I'm disappointed that like in season 7, probably for budget reason, we didn't get a good fight between ships. I guess because it's so different in terms of logistics, D&D'd rather rely on what they know they've mastered.

I'm starting to doubt that this show ends successfully.

All my faith is in the last two episodes. If they can pull it off, many of the stumbles along the way will be forgiven but I get more nervous with each passing episode.

Don’t forget, they pulled Battle of the Bastards and Winds of Winter our right after one of the worst arcs of the entire show. Fingers crossed.

They didn't do this in Season 7 though.

Euron is such a shitty character, if you even want to call him that. He has done more harm to Dany than the Night King smh. He doesn't deserve to kill a dragon. Thanks, I hate it.

This is currently the lowest rated episode of GoT on imdb.

Interesting how D&D learned GRRM’s endgame after S3’s production and before the fourth.
Last S3 Dany scene: Mhysa Crowdsurfing
First S4 Dany scene: Mass crucifixion of Masters
They were not going in that direction lol. But I wouldn’t call it rushed. Always felt she would be a terrible ruler. I think there’s a lot of proper setup for this arc

If you look at the detail on IMDb, many people voted 1/10 before the episode released, including "IMDb 1000 voters". So, it mostly shows that some fans turned into haters.

I'm one of those who liked the previous episode. At least for the most part. But this? This is the worst episode of Game of Thrones I've seen. Terrible writing throughout.
- The entire 'party after the battle' thing was so weirdly put together. Everybody is like ten times more drunk than Tyrion has ever been, by the looks of it. Why did they feel the need to make so much humor around drunk people when they've never done that before?
- I get that Jon wanted to tell Sansa and Arya about himself, but it makes no sense that Sansa told Tyrion.
- I really don't understand Bronn's character arch. They made him a funny, likeable dude who gets along really well with both Tyrion and Jaime, and the whole 'money over everything' persona doesn't fit in at all in that scene.
- Euron just showing up out of nowhere - again... So fucking lazy and boring. And how did Dany not see him, and how did Bran not know about this? If they're not gonna use Bran's powers as a tool they should have just killed him off last episode. He's literally the most powerful person now.
- Rhaegal officialy gets the lamest death of the series while Drogon dodges every single spear
- Fucking Ghost man... Terrible treatment.
- Tyrion not accepting the truth from Varys regarding Dany. It's extremely easy to understand, and Tyrion is supposed to be one of the smartest, if not the smartest character in the show.

Also, if Jaime doesn't ride to King's Landing to kill Cercei I'll never forgive them. Him somehow wanting back to her because he learns about even more terrible things she's done, just doesn't make sense.
