      Jeremy I’ve always been wary of you as a reviewer since you can really be hit or miss all the time, and usually have been basically style over substance. But this review of yours to one of the more advanced GoT episodes has absolutely now convinced me that you (like Stuckmann) are not much of a sophisticated viewer afterall (like so many others). It seriously just blows my mind how u people couldn’t see any of the clues from previous seasons, this one included, that actually clearly hinted of her villainy for a long, long time. Apparently the likes of you really need in-your-face clues shoved down your throats. That is just one aspect of your review that is appalling.

      The other truly, truly stupid aspect is that you (like so many morons out there) wanna then act like you even know storytelling/ writing by exclaiming that overblown laughable obnoxious BULLSHIT of “foreshadowing isn’t character”, when in fact IT IS!!

          Dany's mad queen moment was so stupid and poorly written. If they really wanted to make that moment believable and impactful then I think they should have written the public into the death of Missandei.

          1. Cersei has Qyburn address the public, making up lies and vilifying Daenaerys telling them that she's riding south on her dragon to burn down the city and everyone in it just like The Mad King wanted to do.
          2. Qyburn gains Cersei some public favor by promising to protect the city and everyone who lives in it by showing off the ballistas that were built to defeat the dragon.
          3. Missandei gets captured, and then the meeting we see with Dany and Cersei takes place just like we see in the show... except...
          4. Instead of Cersei just executing Missandei. She is instead lead to the center of town and tied up in front of the entire city. Where men, women and children all take turns throwing stones at her all while they laugh and cheer. Which would have made so much more sense when Dany starts to slaughter them all.

          Think back to the scene from Star Wars: Attack of the Clones.. and say what you want about those movies but this scene is powerful. It's the scene when Anakin goes to find his mother and he finds her tied up and dying in a Tusken Raider camp. So when his mother finally dies and he becomes so enraged that he slaughters the entire camp, that makes sense to me. That's why I think they should have found a way to justify the animosity towards civilians.

              I gotta give this vid a thumps up lot of good points about this season. Also those Varys and Tyrion impersonations were on point.

                I don't get comparisons between Cersei and Danny where they say it's the quantity of people they've killed that it's important. Most of the time Daenarys didn't enjoyed killing, just saw it as a necessity. Cersei tortured her enemies for weeks and months, all the while sipping wine and listening to that delightful sound of humans in pain. If she had a dragon, do you think the kill count would still be less?

                    I can't make the leap either. I think they tried to shove Show Daenerys into Book Daenerys' ending. It was too big of a turn. It was a bridge too far. It was 10 bridges too far.

                    I could have absolutely seen her going at the Red Keep to target Cersei, the source of her anger. This has to be the biggest character let down in the history of character letdowns.

                      This episode felt like Michael Bay directed it with tons of explosions and barely a story line.

                        Nobody is going to talk about The Hound vs The Mountain? I thought the Hound arc had a decent ending , he died killing his brother with fire, his worst fear.

                          I blame that stupid war hero Jon Snow .. all the time “she is my queen.. I will not let her down”, “I don’t want it the iron throne, she’s my queen”... That’s what happens when you keep Nuke code with a bitch fucker snow

                            No one understands "Subverting Expectations" where the unexpected happens. GOT would have been even greater had Tony Stark's Iron Man shown up and killed Cersei Lannister & Daenerys Targaryen. No one would expect that at all with masterful "Subverting Expectations". .... Also, Drogon realized Daenerys was killed by a knife, so he destroyed the army of knives disguised as a throne. .... /s

                                  Please someone explain, how did Daenerys killed so many innocent people in just 1 episode she didn't kill in her whole life, did the Mad King's ghost get into her?😂

                                    Great acting, special effects, battle sequences, and storytelling all ruined because Benioff and Wise wanted to get on the Star Wars paycheck as soon as they could.

                                      Jamie did everything he had to, to redeem himself. He went to Winterfell to help fight for the Starks. He reconciled with Bran. Going back to Cersei was his endgame.

                                            Tyrion's stupidity did not bother me--he was in love with Danerys and could not see what was happening, whereas Varys had no such disadvantage. Jamie;s end did not bother me--he was always in love with Cersei and when push came to shove, he was going to try to save her. The one that bothered me was Danerys, and frankly it's a tough one. After so many episodes of styling herself as the "breaker of chains" and "not my father's daughter", both sentiments that I think were honest, it is tough to believe that she hated the people of King's Landing enough to do what she did. It was not a politically smart move either, given that all of Westeros would desert her after such an act, starting with her own boyfriend.

                                            My own choice would have been a Shakespearean ending--Dany accepts the surrender, but the conflict between her and Jon would still be lingering. Dany sees that Jon is proposed as king, maybe tries to kill him to keep the throne (he is spurning her at this point, after all). Jon kills her in self-defense, and then Drogon sees the whole thing and lights up Jon. The council gets together but cannot decide on a king, and so the kingdoms go their separate ways. And the Game of Thrones begins again, sans Targareyans.

                                              Loved how like a season ago Dany locks her dragons up for killing one child. Oke that's fair...

                                              Proceeds to systematically go down every street of kings landing torching, innocent, men, women and children.

                                              While the characters deciding to massacre everyone is a massive moment you have to sustain your disbelief. I actually liked the episode and the visuals and effects. I just don't like how they executed it all.

                                              Like hell, why didn't they make it that her other dragon didn't die in ep4 and it dies in ep5 and you hear the civilians cheering for Danys dragons death, maybe even thinking it she was on the that dragon. Ofc Dany being on Drogon she's still alive, so she hears the bells, but then sees Rhaegal get shot down, and hears innocents cheering. Making Dany angery at the innocents for cheering at the death of her dragon, and this is especially upsetting for her, as she just wanted to free them from a tyrant.

                                              Like honestly I liked s8 overall. No where near as good as other seasons but I liked it... But HATED episode 6. If it were up to me Dany would have ended up on the throne.

                                                What the fuck is with these people whining about Jamie going back to Cersei? For me that was the one inevitability of his arc. Every step of the way, no matter how much he'd grown, he'd throw it out the window when it came to Cersei. That was the one constant for his character. So these people acting like that was somehow subverting what should have been the conclusion for his character are what, just butthurt that he didn't conclude by suddenly flipping on a dime and betraying the one person he'd stayed true to throughout the course of the show? Were you people even watching the show up until now? The one absolutely certain fucking thing about his character was that his one foible outside of pushing little boys out of Windows was that his irrational love for Cersei trumped everything else. It. Made. Perfect. Sense.

                                                The criticism of this last season is 20% valid criticism about the sloppy writing and pacing, 60% bandwagon hate with no real basis for it beyond that's the way the internet is telling them they should hate it and 20% nerd rage that it didn't end the way people wanted and thinking that the showrunners made decisions on a whim, oblivious to the fact that all the major outcomes that people are up in arms about will end virtually the same way when the book is released.

                                                      Someone please explain how Dany could have possibly known that Cersei was dead.
                                                      That's right, she could not have.
                                                      I guess D&D sort of forgot.
                                                      - And the same goes for Arya. who tells Jon "I came to kill Cersei, but Dany beat me to it."
                                                      Say WHAT?
                                                      (Not to mention, Dany did NOT beat her to it. If Arya had stayed with the Hound, she could have killed Cersei, walking down the steps.)

                                                                The thing about early GoT is that it had shocking events, but you could look back on them and see how and why they developed. Ned Stark's execution was shocking, but on a rewatch you can see how his misplaced trust and sense of honour made it inevitable, and the same can be said for the Red Wedding and Oberyn Martell's death. With this, there was nothing supporting these plot points besides foreshadowing devoid of any character development.

Battles that weren't shown those that were they shortened for budget reasons so many side plots and story arches all gone. Characters who were different in the books were changed for the show the outcomes the execution all of that was altered but to an extent most of what we saw was directly from the book for the most part. I think it's funny because you weren't complaining then but your complaining now.

So disappointed to see such intellectual character just silde away, could have been better.
