    While I never cared if Stannis sat the throne or was The Prince Who was Promised, I can easily see how his character was fucking assassinated by this show.

    The series is garbage and is a meme, first of all. More importantly, they (poorly) did the Jaime redemption arc there, too.

    And that doesn't change the whole "I don't really care about the population of King's Landing, even though they were a factor in my decision to kill the Mad King" bit, which alone deserves massive criticism.

    I believe Shireen will burn in the books. I believe Hodor will "hold the door." I believe Dany will go mad in the books. How they get there is the whole. fucking. point. And they will not get there this way.
    It feels like cheap in a way, doesn't it?

    A dude in this thread was saying Jaime's redemption arc was about to surpass Zuko's.

    Where's that dude now? LMAO.

    I'm sorry you feel that way. I recommend not watching something you don't enjoy, that doesn't seem very enjoyable at all. :/

    You shouldn't need to read the books, but that requires show runners that'll stick faithfully to the books themselves. D&D haven't done that, and it's absolutely no surprise that the show became garbage the minute they didn't have Martin handing them scaffolding.

    I think it's a pipe dream that anybody sits on the Iron Throne now. Why would you even want it? King's Landing is essentially a ruin now, at least a good portion of it is. Everyone else has their own lands and keeps.

    At this point the most logical solution would be to dissolve the Seven Kingdoms and let every single region be it's own independent domain.

    Some will get that.

    I enjoyed the first four seasons. At this point I'm in it to dunk on Danyfans. I'm happy enough. The salt mining tonight has been great.

    I'm sorry about your taste, though. Bad taste is something that just can't be changed.

    I expect Jon will take the black, because even though no one will give a shit that he kills Dany, he will always consider himself a Queenslayer, and his only forgiveness will be back in the Watch, this time as a criminal, instead of a noble Lord's bastard.

    This feels like Dexter, with a higher budget.

    Most people don't care if he is either of the two things, it's his journey and how he went about it that got people so passionate.

    LOL. Kinda enjoyed that. Kinda had me madly cackling along 'BUUUUURN THEM!!! BURN THEM ALLL!!!! Which I'm sure went down well with the neighbors at 4.am.

    CleganeBowl was kinda fun. Qyburn death was hilarious. Whoever choreographed the fight between Jaime and Euron did a solid job, much better than many of the other 1on1's across the series. Look on Tyrion and Jon's faces when Dany decided to make Harrenhal look like amateur hour was fucking brilliant.

    Don't get me wrong, there are so many problems, Arya, Jaime, the bad cinematography, the horse, the first 40 minutes is completely worthless but for what it was, a stupid hour of action with no real meaning... it was kinda fun.

    I think that would be the best solution as well. But we have to get rid of Dany and all her supporters (the unsullied and Dothraki ) as I'm not sure how they will react knowing their queen was just murderer but Jon (or Arya). I'm interested in seeing how the writers play that scene out.

    I actually feel like Jaime and Euron was the much better fight than Cleganebowl. Felt much more visceral.

    There's no such thing as bad taste, only different taste.Taste is subjective. I get that you don't like the series and you're trying to push your agenda on others. But let's please not subtly insult others for liking something that you don't. That's not very constructive.

Both of them stuck in an emotionally icy and cruel situation but alive and well and on the throne together.

    WELL THAT'S DEFINITELY NOT THE WAY THEY'RE GOING! Dany's gone full mad queen complete with the crazy eyes and Arya is totally going to end up murdering the shit out of her.

    I've decided that "train wreck" doesn't go far enough to describe this season. HBO has another show, however, called Succession. The title of its second episode is perfect: "Shit show at the fuck factory". Yes, that describes it pretty damn well.
