That bit where Jon was surrounded by them and they all just approached him 1 by 1, I mean, come on. That’s what normal tv shows do, this is GoT and should have been different. No way he survives that.

 

I just felt really underwhelmed. It was still sound, 7/10 but I wanted this episode to be a 9/10.

More of the Night King in battle on the ground would have been good, maybe despatching a few main characters in the process before he got taken out    

 

They must have saved a fortune on make up as you could barely see the army of the dead as a spectacle

Well, I damn near didn't breathe for 90 minutes so that's good enough for me. There have been better battles through the seasons but they don't make this any less effective.

I think that seems to have happened more since the writers of the show have been more involved in writing the show.

The books only went so far and since the show has passed the books its becoming less brutal.

The scene where Jamie charges at Danny with her dragon and he survive's was another moment I was thinking he'd be dead if Martin was still writing the books.

It'll be interesting to see the differences in the story between the books and the TV shows. I suspect we won't see Jon, Dany, Cercei, Tyrion, Sansa, Arya, and others all die in the first half of the first book, then for Martin to have to introduce a load of new characters and storylines that have fuck all to do with the story people spend years watching/reading. Martin already told D&D what is going to happen in the books. It'll be interesting to see if they completely disregarded all of it or if they stuck to it.

Haha. If they continued offing main characters at the original rate the eighth season would just have been a few extras milling around for 5 episodes whilst the dead are walking around the seven kingdoms and the Night King is doing the dishes at Kings Landing.

I could have filmed all Bran Starks scenes when I wake up after a heavy session, paralysed talking utter nonsense and doom mongering.

i reckon the director spent a few nights watching myself sledging in the annexe at Nation back in the 90's, he's got the rolling eyes and monotone voice spot on.

Must have been what they were all up to when they edited it.   Piss poor quality for such a huge budget. 

 

If you've got to squint and fuck about with your tv settings, then there's something very very wrong.

Bit unbelievable like, I remember just walking past a Dragon in Wales, he took umbridge and I barely survived. Don’t get me started on the undead, nightmare on the bus these days. I took out seven or eight big lads once in a brawl, just by swapping face masks and confusing them. It was like it was made up or something.

I thought the Centaurs took umbridge.

A lot of people are saying that some of the battle scenes were a bit far fetched. The thing is, this is just the director's interpretation, this is not exactly how it happened in real life.

Everyone knows those zombies were moving far to fast. Just so unrealistic.

When people are talking about the lack of notable deaths in the episode, I think people are underrating Jorah. He was a bigger character than Tormund, Gendry and Podrick for example and on a par with Brienne, Davos and Grey Worm for me.

Yeah but they teased us with his near death earlier, he was on borrowed time and just hanging around to be killed here. They’ve spared so many because they want Cersei to kill them, thus making her death all the more satisfying to viewers. 

 

Lets not forget Bronn is on his way to kill the brothers too. Still plenty of deaths to come.

There will still be some surprising deaths. I don't think both Jon and Danaerys will make it to the end. As my man Ramsey Bolton said "if you think this has a happy ending then you haven't been paying attention".

Burning question:

 

Which Game of Thrones character would you most like to bang ? 

Sansa. But Arya has also vaulted near the top of the rankings.

Jon will die IMO.

Did anyone notice the wind in that Whitewalkers hair when Arya passed by him before she killed the Nightking?

Yeah, it's the same concept as the drops of blood part in the library. To show how talented/quick/sneaky Arya is. Thought that was another nice touch.
