    Loved Cersei's tiptoe past Cleganebowl, even though Sandor should've taken her out first. Felt bad for Qyburn [KYE-burn, not QWY-burn], actually.

    I will never ever view Dany as a villain. The only explanation for that behavior was insanity, a total psychological break, and she cannot be held responsible.

        So many plots are dead ends this season is kind of disappointing like what’s up with bran the whole show was leading to something yet nothing the writers got a deal for Star Wars trilogy and they wanted to ended it short its such a disappointment

          I can see Bran pushing his wheelchair over all the dead bodies after everyone kills each other yelling: "HAHA! Suck it bitches! I AM THE WHEEL!"

            John kills dany. Seats Tyrion with a warning, 'don't make me come back here ',goes back north. Or maybe takes the iron throne north

              These people are clearly watching this season with rose colored glasses. Not saying the season is awful but the pacing is just so bad. They should have extended the season to 8 episode and really had more intrigue and maneuvering like the other seasons had. And Cersei's death was so unsatisfying.

                  HBO offered them loads of more money to go on for at least two more seasons! Dumb&Dumber refused, what a joke that they ruined this last season!

                    Arya is going to kill John for trying to defend Danny

                      My predictions: Ok now, I’m not necessarily confident in anything I’m going to say, or at least I’m more confident in some and less so in others. The series is notoriously unpredictable.

                      Now Jon Snow decides Dany is not who he thought she was, reluctantly accepts his responsibility, and challenges her for the throne. He wishes Bran and Sam were there to back up his claim, but he expects Tyrion feels the same way, that Varys was right, and will back him, but a conflicted Tyrion sticks with the decision he has made and remains loyal to Dany. Now Dany will command Grey Worm to quickly remove Jon’s head with his own sword like poor old Ned in the first season (cause getting Drogon would take too long). Arya wearing someone else’s face comes out of nowhere to kill Grey Worm, save Jon like she was unable to do for her father, and nearly kill Dany, before she pleads for her life and the life of her unborn child, Jon’s baby (the witch lied or somehow her cryptic prophecy was fulfilled). Accepting his child will be the eventual ruler and bargaining for freedom for the North and Sansa as Queen in the North, as a man of the Night's Watch Jon agrees to exile himself and leaves to meet up with Ghost and Tormund beyond the wall.

                      Daenerys, not just the victim of hormonal mood swings, totally dives into becoming the “mad queen” and is a terrible despot, Tyrian doing his best to reign her in. She visits some of the other five kingdoms and rains fire to get them to fall in line and ignore the messages Varys sent them before his death trying to get them to support Jon. We catch up in short passage of time scenes where we visit each of the other characters. Maybe some weddings (Sam and Gilly, maybe Arya and Gendry), and the birth of Sam and Gilly’s baby, what happens to Bron, Brienne, Davos, Sansa, others. Bran says something super ominous and cryptic about “winter coming.” We get back to Dany about 8 month after razing King’s Landing and she is very pregnant with Jon’s son and heir to the kingdom. She dies in childbirth very much like Lyanna Stark when she gave birth to Jon. A hopeful Tyrion, still hand of the queen, and regent for the baby king, repeats the saying that when a Targaryen is born the gods flip a coin, something his friend Varys recently said. We see the baby sleeping in his crib. He opens his eyes and they are glowing bright blue. No explanation. End scene. End of series.

                        Gendry and Sam are leaders of great houses now. Sansa and the vale would back Jon unless Dany gives Robin Arryn a ride on her Dragon. Dany will have to kill Jon off and if she is pregnant will Jon be able to kill her.

                          How are they treating female actresses poorly there more ways to develop a character then making them the hero for christ sake get over yourself the three main characters this season have been sansa arya an dany what more you want

                          It's brilliant they have these wonderful actresses but I'd rather get a 50/50 character being the hero is not the be all and end all

                          Watch people backtrack there statements if sansa ends up on the iron throne

                            what Dany did was put fear in the other great houses about going against her because she knows Jon has the backing of the realm. Dany had to put on a show to make a statement, she destroyed the Iron fleet, Gold company and took Kingslanding by fire and blood just her and drogon.

                            • DewkChronic

                              The lord of light is still behind Jon as his champion to end Danys reign. jon kills the Dragon and dragon Queen would be epic. The ending I would like to see would be what Robert and Ned in the Crypts of Winterfel and King robert says, "I have a son you have a daughter we will join our houses." Not Sansa and Joffery but Gendry and Arya. Gendry is King and Arya said shes not a Lady but she can be a Queen.

                                Do you think that the show treats female characters poorly??? Where are the female characters that have their genitals cut off I think every body is treated poorly on Game of Thrones every body it is still an awesome show

                                  One thing I hate about Collider is they will praise a turd if its been dropped by the big studios....they did it with Last Jedi and doing it again...learn from your mistakes!!

We go deep on everything that we love and hate about this episode and about the season as a whole.

                                            The raping and murdering of civilians when a city was sieged and sacked is par for the course in the medieval period, anyone surprised by it needs to look into human history. This is not a gender thing, but a human thing.

                                              Not sure why you are upset about Arya not going after Cersei. There is a genocide taking place, thousands of people are getting slaughtered all around, and you want Arya to ignore all that because she has to kill this one person who is going to die anyway

                                                As I saw in another video, did Bran warg Drogon and destroy KL in order to cause the upcoming death of Danny? Danny's face did not look "mad" after letting her troops in. Danny didn't want to kill everyone - she was flying toward Cercei in the Red Keep, but on the way, Drogon veered away. We NEVER see Danny on Drogon while Drogon is laying waste to KL (suggesting that Bran is controlling Drogon even though Danny is riding Drogon). Warging Drogon but putting the blame on Danny ensures the Bran/Sansa goal that Danny will be killed/never be queen.

                                                  If you're gonna talk about a show try pronouncing the Dragon's name right.

                                                      I was thinking the same thing that this season has seemed rushed, that we needed more time to make the character's motivations and actions more believable. Ah well, it is what it is, and because everything else about it has been awesome, I'm willing to forgive it and instead simply imagine how the story would have progressed, had the writers had more time to devote to the various relationships and motivations.

Poetic ending: Jon leaves Westeros with only Drogon and dedicates the rest of his life to controlling the dragon, staying isolated from everyone in order to protect the world. The two keep to areas of only animals to feed and survive, Jon living out his remaining days to keep Drogon from being a threat.

The battle at king's land should be between the White Walkers and the Golden Army. And Jon Snow should manifest his hidden power ... for it is, Jon has a hidden power and the series will not show Jon's transformation into Azor Ahai. What a disappointing season. For this season, Game of Thrones is not the best series of all time. What an unhappy season.

When it was obvious nothing was gonna hurt Mountain, or kill him for that matter, it just took all the suspense out of it for me. Might as well have been a guy hacking at a tree stump for all the excitement I got from it.
