This sneaky peak is apparently a fake spoiler.
True, we didn't see Cersei and Jamie actually die. It is possible they could have survived, although that would be a stretch.Okay have saw it.
My predictions- the Lannisters are all still standing and that family saga will play out next time. Jaime’s arc might yet be saved!
Dany has been predicted and this isn’t poor character development but actually the bittersweet element. Varys said it: you don’t know what side of the coin you’ll get. She has an inherited mental illness and tried so hard to fight it. It’s a tragedy and will play out like that, I reckon. Arya still has a queen to kill and she is pissed
Jon could win. He will not take the throne.
My money is moving to the North and Sansa. She’s the only sane one amongst them.
Oh, this I would actually love to see!Or Bron. Bron for the throne! Huzzah!
That many people not getting it isn't a failing on behalf of the viewers, its a failing on behalf of the writers. Always has been and always will be.There will always be people who don't understand plots and details, even if they are the most obvious ever. That's what these discussion threads are for, so that people can discuss and explain bits that each other might have missed.
We did not see the throne room , seemed from one shot from E5 preview that Tyrion was looking at the Red Keep , the tower was gone but seemed the 'throne room' which is below it is there.Is it a game of thrones, if the throne's is smelted to slag? Obviously they're going to have to move the capitol to somewhere else, since the King's Landing is in ruins. To be honest, the writers have made the ending predictable and it kind of follows GRRM dark style, without leaving much of hope for the original characters. In a way I love this situation, because it resembles SW's Last Hope. If Dany is going to be the Dragon Queen, she surely has shown her place, and what she thinks about people who betrays her, or try to kill those she loves. But how much love is left in her chest, and are all of them going to turn against her, instead of embracing dark times ahead by gathering strength and plotting for a coup to happen in better time?
I think they kind of are. They are under pressure to wrap things up in a very short amount of time. That's going to negatively affect the story.It Is disappointing that there is not more nuance in the story right now , almost if D&D were impatient to get the show out of their hair.
betting rumoured to be based on leaked info....but we'll see next week. Possibly just frenzied misinformationVery doubtful that could ever happen. I think people are hoping the show will be just as complex with its secrets/twists as the books were. IMO, without the source material of the books to go by, the writers of the show aren't really up to the task of doing such big twists -- unless GRRM told them to.
What's wrong with having a wild dragon? One assumes they were like that originally - unless they were specifically constructed for the Valyerians.But the dragon is the problem. Without Daenerys to control it, what would happen? And would the dragon just sit back and let Arya kill Daenerys? It's not like there is any way left to kill a dragon.
Why 'The Bells' is the worst Game of Thrones episode everThe writers have crammed a Walter White-esque descent into a few pages of script.
When Arya shuts Dany’s green eyes forever next episode, and Game of Thrones finally ends, we will be witnessing the end of a show that botched the character arcs of many of its best characters. Viewers will wonder what could have been.
Game Of Thrones season 8 episode 5 review: The BellsRedemption arcs in the real world are very rare indeed, and only go so far. The Hound didn't change his stripes; he walked into his revenge knowing it would be his undoing. You can run from what you truly are, but it tends to eventually catch up to you. The madness of the Targaryens has finally caught up with the Unburned, as the city she came to rule has now been destroyed.
Game of Thrones: Latest Episode Had Lowest Rotten Tomatoes Rating in Series HistoryGame of Thrones' penultimate episode has ruffled quite a lot of feathers since it debuted last night, and it looks like even Rotten Tomatoes is being affected. At the time of this writing, last night's episode, "The Bells", sits at a 54% on Rotten Tomatoes.
This makes "The Bells" tied for the worst-rated episode of the entire series' run, with Season 5's "Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken" also earning a 54%. The "Critics Consensus" for the most recent episode, which tries to summarize what the reviews are saying, reads as follows: "Death, destruction, and the deterioration of Daenerys' sanity make "The Bells" an episode for the ages; but too much plot in too little time muddles the plot and may leave some viewers feeling its conclusions are a little unearned."
Game Of Thrones Final Season Just Isn't That Good
a bonusThe only real question remaining here is, "When did Game of Thrones become so predictable?" While the Last War at King's Landing was visually impressive (unlike the all-too-dark Battle of Winterfell before it), there were very few surprises which the show had previously been built on. Is it because the showrunners ran out of books from George R.R. Martin? Is it because they're trying to rush things to a conclusion? Did they write themselves into a corner and now they're just taking a linear story approach to get out of it?
No one here is asking for a happy ending. It's not fun to watch the peasants of King's Landing get slaughtered as they reach for their children hopelessly. Game of Thrones have never been known to show mercy or provide joy. It's shocking and, in Episode 8x05's case, was produced in compelling cinematic fashion. However, the political nature, the unpredictable story beats, and character conclusions (even if you loved to hate them) which built the show seem to be taking a back seat in a race toward the finish line.
I suppose Brienne was pledged to stay with Sansa.Not sure where Yara was agreed, but what happened to Brienne?
Get a grip woman and slap a sword on!
