    I love this show, and taking the show for what it is, leaving all book plots aside this episode still fell so flat for me. The reason game of thrones is good is because very early on it established and then abided by, a very consistent rule set. Actions have consequence. No one is coming to save you. Let’s look at a parallel between season one and season eight. 

    Season one, Ned Stark. Stabbed in the leg, limps and walks with a cane for the remainder of his life. He is then betrayed, surrounded by his enemies and executed. As show watchers and book readers we waited for someone to save him. He has to survive, he is the hero, the good man, the main character. We were taught then that that doesn’t matter. You die if you are surrounded by your enemies. Your injuries last. Dues ex machina does not exist.

    Season eight, Jon Snow. Falls hundreds of feet out of the sky on a (dead? dying? injured?) dragon. Pops onto his feet unscathed. The night king raises the dead around him. These enemies were established in earlier seasons as absolutely terrifying. A single wight almost kills him and Jeor Mormont, and Jon almost loses the use of his hand to kill it. He is now surrounded by possibly thousands of them. Yet he lives.

    Not only does he live. He runs through the entire army of undead without a hiccup, and then faces down an undead dragon alone. Let’s give him a pass?

    Dany has a literal flying fire breathing dragon. Then Dany is surrounded only to be saved by Jorah f**king Mormont. Wasn’t he just trapped fighting for his life in winterfell? I mean does an army of tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of wights mean nothing? He just ran through miles of undead to be at the exact place at the exact time to save Dany? I could go beat by beat through the main characters and every single one of them should have died several times tonight. I’m not saying I want them all to die or that they should have story wise, but don’t put them in that position if you aren’t willing to follow through with it.

    Come on. Game of thrones is supposed to have consequences for your actions. Gandalf does the appear in the east on the third day. You can’t establish rules that you abide by for seven seasons to say f**k it and throw it all out the window without it ruining it all. This episode had amazing visuals. Amazing music. An amazing set. Yet the storytelling was just awful.

    The show has become the antithesis of itself. Everything that made the in show universe logical, captivating and exhilarating are gone.
    It has become the storybook it tried so hard to subvert.

    Illogical scenes, repetitive themes... examples: arya about to die, another minor character saves her, sam about to die, another minor character saves him, jon about to die, dany saves him... I could give about 20 other examples because there's so many in this episode alone.

    then arya killing the night king, 8 seasons summed up with arya leaping from where? a tree? off the shoulder of a white walker? they heavily foreshadowed it prior it to it happening, but how does it make sense?

    or how everybody was overrun in the first battle, but when EVERYBODY WHO DIED was risen and only main characters were left... they all just ... didn't die? scenes were left off with them being overrun screaming for their lives and only to be cut back to when the night king died.

    the entire episode revolved around one idea: if you're a main character, you don't die.

    the visuals(except an insane amount of cuts when on rewatch were irritating), the soundtrack were f**kING EPIC. But everything else was so bad it made me laugh at times.

    Seems that's all people care about tbh

    They kinda lead up to arya sneaking up on people throughout the last 2 seasons. Even Jaqen would appear out of no where randomly with the powers of the many faced god. 

    Main characters, exceptional fighters LMAO did you want all of them to die with 3 1 hour 22 mins episodes left? I would argue that jorah is a main semi main character I definitely didnt think he was going to die. 

     I definitely thought greyworm was going to die and brienne.  I knew jon wasn't but I also though he was gonna deliver the killing blow. 

    I just watched the inside of HBO. The directors didn't want ALL fighting because that would get all old quick so they broke it down into parts.

    Just curious for episode to be good what did you want to see?

    You didn't argue any of my points but instead just said random things. You think Arya teleporting is a sufficient explanation for how she killed the Night King? If that's what you think is okay, then there really isn't any point to discuss anything with you. 8 seasons led up to "teleportation" - is this anime or Game of Thrones?

    Main characters are not "exceptional" fighters - they had plot armor. It doesn't matter how good you are, the opening scene they were overrun by a 2 foot story of undead white walkers yet walked out unscathed. Scenes would open with them in disastrous positions and cut back to them just fighting 1 white walker. For instance, Dany had 4 white walkers charge her. They cut back to her, and it was only 1. If this only happened once I'd be okay, but it happened to EVERY SINGLE MAIN CHARACTER.

    But sure, I don't think that'll change your mind so I'll switch to another topic I'm annoyed with. Bran.

    What does Bran even do? He did nothing this whole time. It's like the writers didn't know what to do with him other than leave him as a "lure". But what even is he to the Night King and why did he want him to die? The Night King is dead and we still don't know... What did he follow with his birds? Like nothing about that entire arc makes sense and still doesn't. His character is reduced to the guy who stares at people. Why did we follow him around for countless seasons? This was when they followed the books, and they obviously have no clue what the f**k to do with him.

    Don't ask me what I'd do to make it "good" - I'm speaking on the episode I WATCHED. I'm not a writer, nor did I have 2 years to come up with it and I wasn't paid to do it. There is a reason George R. R. Martin hasn't finished the books for 8 years and counting. He has no f**king clue how to tie all these story lines together - and Game of Thrones did it very badly.

    I see what you are saying. The pacing seemed a bit off. Where the Dothraki army seemed to have been defeated way too quickly. Where it was just basically thrown away off screen. Maybe they were trying to show an impact and show how dangerous the dead are but they seemed to have missed it.  Then Arya was fighting a bunch of white walkers. Then all of a sudden she was sneaking around a library. Yeah and there was too much of people getting piled upon and then they are Okay, sometimes it happened a few times to the same people. It seemed way too easy and it was all over I thought there was going to be a lot more involved with it. Also there seemed to be things going on with the Night King and Bran but not enough was explained. Bran said he was after the three eyed raven. But not enough was explained. I thought there was going to be a lot more. Where perhaps the seven gods got involved in the fight somehow. Or the god tree was able to do something. Not that the whole battle was going to be over in one episode. 

    Though the red woman, or red witch whatever she was called. Was she someone that was dead that was revived by the night king but the lord of light had a collar fashioned for her so she could not be controlled by him? Where perhaps she was able to rebel a bit against the control. Because after she took off the necklace thing, and her clothes she turned into dust.

    The necklace was the only thing keeping her alive. Remember when she took it off and she turned into that old lady barely alive back in Season 5. But to be honest, I don't understand anything about the entire arc of them. She did nothing in the battle. The lord of light's entire arcs end game was to save Arya when she was about to die... that's it. Revived 19 times for that purpose. And her entire arc  has countless loop holes in her writing and why she existed with how they wrapped it up. George R. R. Martin obviously had a plan on what the "lord of light" had to do with the final battle but all Game of Thrones came up with was fire swords that did nothing and saving Arya.

    They simply had no clue how to tie all these story lines together. They also went into episode 3 where it was the Night King dying to have the finale being Cersei vs The North. Pretty pathetic way to go about it since we were building up for the Night King not this shit. But they still need more fan service of the clegane battle and what not. It was the easier way to do it I guess.

    She is an assassin, if were going the realistic route why the hell can she look and talk exactly like anyone who face she takes (anime lol) I also suppose everyone should have died in the episode when they went beyond the wall  lol. It's a TV show it's not going to be perfect.

    Theyre also other stories to tell not just the night kings. I'm sorry you didnt like the episode though. I loved  it

    I loved this episode. but i just cant get over how useless the armour was. how did theon actually get pierced by a broken wooden spear when he was wearing full metal plate? '

    Nothing anyone tells you is gonna make you like the episode, you either do or you don't. I was simply curious on your perspective.

     I definitely thought greyworm was going to die and brienne.  I knew jon wasn't but I also though he was gonna deliver the killing blow. 

    I just watched the inside of HBO. The directors didn't want ALL fighting because that would get all old quick so they broke it down into parts.

    Just curious for episode to be good what did you want to see?

    Indubitably [2117849]

    You didn't argue any of my points but instead just said random things. You think Arya teleporting is a sufficient explanation for how she killed the Night King? If that's what you think is okay, then there really isn't any point to discuss anything with you. 8 seasons led up to "teleportation" - is this anime or Game of Thrones?

    Main characters are not "exceptional" fighters - they had plot armor. It doesn't matter how good you are, the opening scene they were overrun by a 2 foot story of undead white walkers yet walked out unscathed. Scenes would open with them in disastrous positions and cut back to them just fighting 1 white walker. For instance, Dany had 4 white walkers charge her. They cut back to her, and it was only 1. If this only happened once I'd be okay, but it happened to EVERY SINGLE MAIN CHARACTER.

    But sure, I don't think that'll change your mind so I'll switch to another topic I'm annoyed with. Bran.

    What does Bran even do? He did nothing this whole time. It's like the writers didn't know what to do with him other than leave him as a "lure". But what even is he to the Night King and why did he want him to die? The Night King is dead and we still don't know... What did he follow with his birds? Like nothing about that entire arc makes sense and still doesn't. His character is reduced to the guy who stares at people. Why did we follow him around for countless seasons? This was when they followed the books, and they obviously have no clue what the f**k to do with him.

    Don't ask me what I'd do to make it "good" - I'm speaking on the episode I WATCHED. I'm not a writer, nor did I have 2 years to come up with it and I wasn't paid to do it. There is a reason George R. R. Martin hasn't finished the books for 8 years and counting. He has no f**king clue how to tie all these story lines together - and Game of Thrones did it very badly.
    Most likely leaving some loose ends on purpose, they do have a prequel coming out that deals with the Night King and his army.

    Okay, but what happened to Ghost though?
    He magically got out unscathed. They didn't show it but he's in the next episodes preview... Why was he on the front line anyway? Shouldn't he have been in the crypt protecting them?

    Guess that would have cost more money in CGI though.

    I enjoyed the episode most from Arya's perspective. At the start we see her fighting like a bat of hell killing the dead. She hits her head and loses the pointed staff gendry made for her. The hound is starting to lose his shit but when he sees Arya fighting for her life he gets his shit together and searches for her. When it cuts back to Arya she has some very human moments mostly hiding and running from the dead she eventually reunites with the hound and the red woman. The witch says "what do we say the god of death" which really brought the episode full circle all the way from season 1. Lastly we see the knife move she used against Brianne against the night king once again bringing something older back into the show.

    Great episode, Jon has always been my favorite character but after so many great Arya scenes I may have to reconsider.

    I'm rewatching old episodes now, and my heart aches from longing for the former glory and greatness of the show. In my humble opinion, the game of thrones had died with Tywin on a toilet in season four.

    The only time Ghost wasn't CGI was in Season 1. Everything past that and CGI was used(they still used a wolf). You need post-production editing, and then a LOT of CGI. To put him in the crypt where he should have been would have cost a lot of money.

    Ghost has actually been cut from the script for the past few seasons because of how much money it costs. An article if you're interested:

    nah theres several shots where they only made some color correction and used different camera angles for the wolves.

    I guess the producers of Game of Thrones don't know as much as you.

    I think you might have done a better job than they did this episode anyway.
