    There's not a single good person left in this show. They've all been going to the same moral barometer shop, and clearly all the stock is broken.

    Was that really hands dirty though? They betrayed the Lord commander of the night's watch and murdered him. Treason or no?

    The point was made in comparison to Daenerys' reactions to aggressors. If Jon is guilt-free then Daenerys is guilt free; If Jon got his hands dirty then Daenerys is no more mad than anyone else.

    Exactly how are the thousands of innocent civilians, that she barbecued in the city, aggressors?

    I was referring to everything prior to that. Some say that her heel turn was telegraphed, but she was no worse than the best of Westeros. Firm but fair.

    My bad, it was the three cities attacking Mereen in season 5-6 that she intended to put to fire and sword after they send the fleet to attack Mereen. Tyrion's response amounts to 'erm, that's a lot of people to kill for the sake of a few rich slave masters,' and that time she agrees.

    Out of the both of these I think AC/DC's Hell's Bells works best. But I'm really not a fan of AC/DC, so my favourite has to go to Metallica :thumb:

    So, since the day has come, there's been some debate here as to what's going to happen. I'm reckoning;

    Jon kills Danny, Dragon kills Jon, Arya kills Dragon, and Wheels looks off at a weird angle while being entirely vague about something, Dwarfypants commits suicide when finding his pancaked siblings.

    So I'm not up to date (now 2 series behind), and whilst I've not seen many spoilers etc, I have heard lots of bad things about this series, without going into details, wondering if people here agree the latest series (last?) has really been bad or people just didn't like decisions made etc.

    I think the general consensus is that the last few series have changed because there's no book to adapt - The show writers are taking GRRM's ideas into consideration, but are largely fending for themselves.

    Which, given they've had an end-date in mind, means they've had a lot of things going down that the fans of the books disagree with because it's very quick changes of mind and character.

    Honestly, I can't tell much of a difference other than it feels more rushed than it did before. Or, perhaps, a little less meandering than before.

    Well that was...

    Meh. Tbh, they didnt have many places they could go. It felt like that scene at the end of the film where they try and tidy everything up, but always feels forced; or maybe the "where are they now" credit sequences. Not sure what else they could've done, but i think a few too many characters survived/ended up in rather strange places.

    EDIT:
    Actually, it felt like they're setting things up for spin offs, and sequels - Arya and the Voyages of the Dawn Trader; Drogon and his Doll go travelling; Jon, King of the North (of the Wall)...

    As mentioned previously, I haven't watched the show since the end of season 5, but it appeared to me that the more they tried to shoe-horn typical "magic and dragons" fantasy into the show, the worse it got.

    Basically, it's all Dany's fault.

    Having not read the books I was sad to see when the magic/fantasy was shown to be real rather that rumour type thing, as I was enjoying it as a medieval fiction.

    I'll get round to catching up at some point I'm sure :p

    Drogon an his doll would only be one season at most, decomposing peoples tend to fall apart.

    Without the books and without the time there wasn't much for them to go by.

    All things considered the season was alright, the final episode was predictable seeing all the hullabaloo was in the previous episodes, and even though this season isn't something I'd consider re-watching, it was alright.

    I believe GRRM will take a different route however, as this ending wasn't in his tone. I hope he sticks around long enough to finish them.
