Yes sorry didn't mean to suggest you were. I should have worded my post much better. I reacted because of other things I've read descended into endless memes and links to nonsense articles which killed all reasonable discussion, which obviously wasn't your intention.

It would have been more ballsy if the dragon had blasted Jon in its rage (knowing he wouldn't die) and then flown off with the 2 of them.

Or ... if Dany had sat on the throne, only to have Arya stick her needle through the back of the throne, into her (the way the camera panned round, I actually wondered if anyone was hiding back there).

Or, winding back a bit ... Tyrion knows he's on death row, so voluntarily gives up his face for Arya to use in a stealth attack on Dany ... would have been pretty awesome, and very GOT (I read that idea somewhere).

Also, I stumbled across these well-written Forbes articles from 2017 (start of S7) which are not nonsense articles and actually add to the discussion >>

See that being the rightful heir or whatever Jon Snow was never really went anywhere did it? Hopefully that'll get fleshed out in the books

It served as a plot device to isolate Danny and drive her over the edge, and also to get him past the final boss without getting burn to a crisp (best dialogue tree tracking ever since the ones to let you stop the Geth war in Mass Effect 3!).

Finally watched all the finale. Underwhelming, more of an epilogue than a big finish.

couldn't have put it better myself to be honest.

Started to feel like the end of lord of the rings where you start to think ok, it's going to end now.... oh wait, it's going to end now... no wait, maybe now....

To be honest I'd have preferred to watch an entire episode of the council (tyrion, bron, brienne, davos and sam) sitting around getting witty with the bants and them just referencing what happened

5 minutes of the Hound roasting people.

Contains very strong language from the start and throughout.

The freefolk subreddit, has raised 29k for Emilia's charity SameYou

Quote:
Incase you weren't aware, Emilia wrote a personal essay for the New Yorker in March about her experience suffering two brain hemorrhages, the first of which happened shortly after wrapping season 1. With that essay she launched her charity SameYou, in aid of increasing neuro-rehabilitation access to young people after brain injury.

Also thought the Book was incredibly naff, bit LOTR. I get it is funny that Tyrion isn't even mentioned but blatantly absurd? What the hell was in the book?

I think there were supposed to have been three alternate endings filmed and by alternate endings I think it was referring to three different versions of the Dragon Pit scene, where somebody else was chosen each time.

This isn’t to be confused with the actual alternate ending which would have had Jorah going north of the Wall with Jon. But from what I understand about each of his scenes after the third episode I just don’t think it works for his character so the ending they eventually went with sounds better. Edit: I’ve edited this paragraph because I’m not clear whether these scenes were filmed or not.

It has also been explained that when you see Jon going north of the Wall at the end, he isn’t abandoning the Night’s Watch he is just on a scouting mission.

Edit: Also don’t forget there is one more episode left at the usual times tomorrow, but it’s just a documentary.

He looks like he is sacking off the nights watch and going North with his mates to be honest, that's how I read it. But I suppose with no wall, who decides what is North anymore

Same here that was my interpretation as well.

They seemed to be waiting in Castle Black for Jon.

Well to be honest, the wildlings are now allies, I guess they just need to keep an eye on any white walkers

He surely must have seen what would happen. He knew he would be offered the role and that is why he travelled all the way down from Winterfell.
Or alternatively he knew Dany was always destined to descend into madness and so forced the issue of Jon's lineage because that was the only way that they could persuade Jon to eventually betray her.

I'm still undecided as to whether Bran ending up on the throne was all that logical a decision from a narrative/character point of view. I mean, they've just spend the last three seasons establishing that the Three Eyed Raven is pretty much disconnected from the rest of humanity. His only real qualification appears to be that he's probably gonna be very difficult to kinda betray when he can see you coming in advance, and he's completely passive and willing to delegate the general ruling to Tyrion.

Jon's finale also played like his appointment to The Night's Watch was simply an empty title and in reality he simply buggered off to live with the wildlings. I really don't understand what they need a Night's Watch for anymore, the Wildlings should still be free to move south and claim lands in the North as per their original deal, yeah?

Only thing I'm disappointed about with the finale was that I didn't get to see Grey Worm die a horrible, bloody death. Was he really in any position to be giving demands once his queen and her dragon were gone and the rest of Westeros were united? God I hated that character and his stupid soap opera romantic plotline and bull**** surly posturing through the last two episodes.

The White walkers might be gone, but what about the grumkins and the snarks?





GoT II, coming soon.

I honestly reckon we will see another series at some point, I doubt many of them will have much of a career in movies. The only who seems to be doing the best (or getting roles at least) is dead, so I could see them coming back to it in five years time.

There was a massive hole in the wall and there was no more nights watch, it was just Jon and the wildlings. I'm sure they just left to live in the "true north" again with Jon

It was mentioned on another forum, the iron islands were suppose to become independent for supporting the war against cersei but that was forgotten about.

Euron died though, and whats-her-face was loyal to the new order so I guess that deal never went through.
