    I disagree. It's Game of Thrones not Game of the Night King. The most important story that has run throughout is who is going to rule, who is going to win the game of thrones.

    It means many things. It's the Stark motto. It literally means that the long winter is coming (which are particularly harsh and dangerous for those in the north). It is also a metaphor for the dangers that come with the darkness and the cold, including the Night King and White Walkers, but isn't exclusive to them IMO.

    No, GOT is the name of the first book. The series is called "A song of Ice and Fire"



    No one believed in Night Kings and White Walkers. They are legends and tails from 10,000 years prior.

    Seaons in this world are not measured in months but in years. That's something this season shit the bed with again, as it's suppose to be finally winter in Kings Landing, but there is no indication of that this season.

    I have a hard time believing the Lannisters are dead.... when they didn't show the Hound dead he wasn't. Tyrian told Jamie to keep following the stairs which it looked like they were doing.... I'm not convinced yet.

    Did you see the part where the stairs were completely blocked by rubble?

    And THIS series is called Game of Thrones.

    I know they didn't believe in them but they are an example of the dangers that come with the darkness.

    This thread reminds me of the nerds that talked about D&D at the high school lunch table.

    Granted, I did binge watch all the seasons with my wife. However, I don't know anyone, I would discuss GOT with.

    BTW. My schooling, leads me to believe that the White Walkers representative of the general public.

    Congrats on being obtuse.

    If you are truly enjoying this season, good for you. I wish I had such low standards.

    However you'd be wrong to not notice a significant change in quality, pacing, and character archs from the seasons based on the source material, to the seasons being pulled out of D&D's asses.

    Don't make excuses for garbage.

    Why get hung up on it though? The filming has ended, there is only one episode left, so what can be done now? Complaining about it wont change but it can obviously make you bitter about it all. I'd rather just take it for what it is and when it is done I will go about my life until the next series catches my interests.

    This here. I am not the hugest fan how it has played out and yes it was rushed and yes a lot is different than the book but I take it for what it is. I will finish the last episode and move on to the next show not bitter and not sad.

    My take on the “rushed to crazy” part for Danarys is that she’s a Targaryan.

    They mention several times that the family is deeply incestuous, bears crazy people, and if her dad was batshit nuts, what’s stopping her from being worse?

    All is good, all is good, bam..dead dragons-dead friend-dead maiden-betrayal-mass murder.

    Seems like a normal sequence to me.

    No, I see the culmination of the past seasons coming to a head. You’re just pissed that it isn’t going exactly how you want it to. You’re worse (or maybe you do the same) than comic book fan boys, you attack a show based on your opinion presented as fact. The quality hasn’t gone down, the story telling hasn’t gone down. You’re just being a negative twat.

    Wow.

    Hypocrite Much?

    So, it's my "opinion" quality and story writing went to shit, but it's your fact it didn't? Care to show a previous season with Starbucks sponsors or regenative apendages?

    Considering the vast majority of people agree with me would indicate I am correct and you are not.

    "Comic Book Fanboys", sorry for being a fan about something. Clearly you are not, and the reality is fans are what makes "a thing" something great.

    How would you like it if Ford last minute cancels thr GT500 and releases a FWD Focus based Hybrid and calls it a GT500 and says "we know people were really excited about the GT500... And we wanted to subvert expectations and give the audience something new and spectacual! So here is the new FWD GT500 Hatch!!".

    Then when people don't buy it and don't like it, accuse them of being haters, stupid, negative and white suprememenismists.

    Speaking of Comic books (ps, I hate them), Marvel was able to neatly tie together 22 movies of character development, plot points and growth into Avengers End Game that has been universally praised by both hardcore obsessed fans as well as the "normies".That's how you end a cultural event of that scale.

    If D&D had been in charge they'd have cut the movie to 75 minutes, Thanos would have died in the first 4 minutes and Capitan America would turn on Tony, kill him and say Thanos was right, half the world must die..... Captain Marvel kills Capitan America... Roll credits. Bet you never saw that coming! Expectians Subverted!!
