I need to go back and rewatch. Is a Dothraki horde just loose in Westeros now?

It isn't true that people didn't like it because the ending didn't simply go how they wanted, or the person they liked died, or didn't die.

It made no sense, and so many interesting aspects of the shows previous seasons turned out to be meaningless, or never addressed. If it was just a rushed or poor finale in terms of who won, or who died I think most would understand that they wish it was longer but sometimes shows rush to finish.

In this case, the last season is so bad it really ruins the re-watchability of the show. Knowing how many aspects of the previous seasons turn out to really not matter makes it hard to ever want to go back and rewatch because you just sit there knowing it has no real direction to any of it.

I don't know how accurate this list is, but Sophie Turner makes a lot of money to act and follow a poorly written plot.

Nobody is blaming the actual cast. They did a good job with what they had to work with, acting wise. It is the writing that was lacking.

I think it's implied they got on a boat not no info why/where. Westeros seems ripe for pillage, only Dorne has an in tact army.

Someone explain the purpose of the Lord of Light to me. Seriously, did this "god" exist just to counter the NK? If so how fucking dumb is that. So much effort was put into that god and it's followers.

And why the build up about winter? Which ended up being a very short winter.

^Tyrion stated something along the lines of "don't worry about that, it'll only make your head hurt".

That was the writers essentially saying "we're abandoning all of the Lord of Light and prophecy stuff in the show, deal with it."

Jon was brought back from the dead and hardly anybody ever even knew.

Does anyone outside of the north know/believe what happened with NK?

That whole thing is annoying. There was that whole prophecy about Azor Azhai saving Westeros from the Night King. Berric Dondarrion and Melisandre both used magic from Azor Azhai, so we know that at least in the GoT universe, there really was something to back up this prophecy and it wasn't just a legend. But ultimately it didn't go anywhere.

I guess Beric did die helping Arya, who went on to kill the Night King, so maybe that was it? All Melisandre really did was light the Dothraki swords on fire. Which did absolutely nothing to help them.

^Melisandra also used the Lord of Light to light the pit around Winterfell during the battle.

Nevermind. Saw your post on previous page. I agree with you.
Sophie Turner may feel unappreciated because of bad feedback from viewers, but she could just blame D&D.

To be fair GoT was amazing until it ran out of source material. The new Star Wars trilogy is supposed to be based on the Knights of the Old Republic series, and there is a TON of material for them to use in putting those movies together. Shouldn't really have to come up with a ton of material on their own.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine had a lot of source material.

The Wire had the shittiest ending of all. The entire last season was awful.

The Wire last season plot line was the worst of the 5 seasons but there was still a ton of good stuff and the end was excellent.

the ending of the Wire was perfect for the show, as it showed that the problems in Baltimore were self-sustaining. Michael turns into the next Omar, Dukie turns into Bubbles, the "Greeks" continue supplying dope to any dealer that survives, the political machine keeps churning, and the next man up deals on the corner where the former dealer got murdered. For all the effort that law enforcement, schools, and politicians put into trying to clean up the city over five seasons, nothing was any different.

Sadly all that development has done nothing to make it a decent place to be.

Ever see Lost or Dexter? What a clusterfuck. I think those were due to writer's strikes at least, though.

I'll take Baltimore over Raleigh any day. The problems of a few square miles of this city don't detract from all the other great things about this area.

Does Tyrion assume the Lannister debt for hiring the Golden Company?

What is even left of the Golden Company? Not like they'd be able to come after him. If some random dude knocked on my door and was like "Hey your sister owed me a shitload of money. She's dead now so you owe me the money." I'd tell him to fuck off.

It's the iron bank. The question is did cersei pay in advance or not

^^She paid the old debt by sacking High Garden then took out additional loans to hire the Golden Company.
No way the Iron Bank just lets that go and they have the faceless men right down the street.

I mean, if someone has no heirs, no spouse, and no personal belongings(her entire kingdom was rubble), not really sure the Iron Bank has much foot to stand on there in trying to collect from her brother who is now the Hand of the King.

Iron Bank made a bad investment on Cersei and she lost, doubt they can collect on anything.

I also imagine the Iron Bank is going to want to have good relations with the new King, and attacking the Hand or demanding payment probably isn't the best way to facilitate that.

^^right but did the iron bank actually pay anything out or not. Does gold comp get paid in advance? If not, did IB give cersei the coin or like a "we'll pay" note. Also doesn't IB often use GC to pay debts. What good will a faceless man do? Kill Tyrion? Kill bran?

Could potentially back usurper or just write off the loss. Just seemed odd we saw literally none of them after what a force they were built up to be.

Looks like the Prequel is dead in the water, at least at HBO.
