‘Game of Thrones’ Creators Plan to Be ‘Very Drunk and Far From the Internet’ When Series Finale Airs

Quote

“We’ll be in an undisclosed location, turning off our phones and opening various bottles,” Weiss said. “At some point, if and when it’s safe to come out again, somebody like [HBO’s ‘Thrones’ publicist Mara Mikialian] will give us a breakdown of what was out there without us having to actually experience it.”

Added Benioff, “I plan to be very drunk and very far from the internet.”

Not sure what to make of that.

Welp…

Episode 3 was an absolute shitfest.  I'm surprised so many of you loved it.  

Since the very first episode they have been setting up the wights and Walkers to be a major player and the main threat to the world.  For 7 seasons it's been the threat of the White Walkers and the Long Night.  They've been setting Jon and Danny up to be the ones who stop the Walkers.  Jon was resurrected, possibly because he's the Prince Who was Promised and the one to save the world.

In one episode, they Walkers are dead.  They only made it as far south as Winterfell.  No character of real consequence died.  Arya killed the Night King in the stupidest way.  Someone mentioned it's like having Chewbacca kill Darth Vader, and it's a great comparison.  How the hell did Arya even get to the Night King with all those White Walkers around?  It was shoehorned in and not earned after 70 episodes.

So many shots of characters being in trouble and cutting away... then coming back to them still being alive.  Jon surrounded by wights and it cuts away.  Then two minutes later he's fine, yelling at a dragon.  The same fucking dragon that knocked down the wall couldn't knock down a rock Jon was hiding behind.  

Sam is absolutely worthless and gets people killed, he's covered in the dead and somehow survives.  

WTF did Brann do the whole time?  Was he watching End Game?

Theon was going to die, but it was the dumbest way possible.  

The slow walk the Night King did, slow motion to kill Brann.  Come on.  Get on with it.

The stupid battle strategy in defending Winterfell.  It was all to create tension, but it's so unlike this series to be so dumb.

Episode 4 was even worse.  The writing is shit, and this final season is turning into a huge boner killer.  Talk about a let down.  Now that the show passed the books they are struggling to carry dialogue and characters.  

Jamie banging Brienne only to leave.  Jon just leaving Ghost behind. (which they said was because of CGI costs).  The dragon being killed by a huge arrow a mile away.  Cercei hiring an assassin to kill Tyrion, then not killing him and the 15 people Danny had with her at the gates when she could have ended the war.  What.  The.  Fuck.  

It's a different series now, at least we have the books.  I'm convinced GRRM is holding onto his books until the show ends.

Its full on Mad Queen now.  We all saw it coming and it really cemented itself with Jon rejecting her.  Again, Jon being an idiot.  All you had to to was take the hot girl that was throwing herself at you and all would be cool.

I initially thought she was going after the red keep.  But no, she just torched everything and it was a free for all.

I expect Arya to kill Danny.  Seems like they are setting that up.

Wondering how the whole Bronn/Tyrion thing ends up.  Thinking Bronn isn't getting his castle and will die.

Edit ... changed text color in the spoiler tag.  Las - can we get it to default to black?

Most ppl guess hound v mountain. I didn't expect they'd both buy it though. I thought Hound deserved a better end. Pretty sure the Mountain played Darth Vader in RotJ.

Didn't see Cersei and Jaime dying that way. I thought they'd give us the pleasure seeing her die a much more deserved death, than quickly, in her brothers arms, under a pile of rubble.

I still don't think Arya is going to kill Danni. I think it'll be Jon. And i'm still up for the Jon=Night-King surprise ending.

Very very very disappointed in how they've written the Tyrion Character for this episode. Giving up Varys was so wrong on so many levels. It was like he'd been written by someone who has never seen the show. As a character, with so much history with Varys, he would never have given him up like that.

All in all though, i really enjoyed the episode. At least something happened.

I hear ya.  He so easily gave up his best friend but let his brother go, knowing he will be fried for it.  Not only that, I'll take it a step further.  He's sucked for awhile.  His defining trait ... his intellect ... has been awful for awhile now.  He's been wrong about every strategic decision he's made.

I have one more prediction.

Jon is a Targaryan and next in line. I reckon, when tested, Drogon recognises this and changes allegiances away from Dani to him. This may even be how she dies, by the fire of her own child... Man that would be a fitting end: Jons last word in the show.... "Dracarys". 

Even if that isn't true, it fucking should be.

She can't die in with fire, right?  She's survived a ton of fires without a scratch.  That would be cool though

Damn you and your application of perfect reason and logic.

I was hoping as Cersei went downstairs in the keep that she passed a dungeon with a still chained up Ellaria Sand with decomposed body directly across.

Or as she passed another dungeon, she muttered the words shame to one of the figures jailed up.

Just to show how bad ass she was.

There are about a thousand things I could bitch about, but I don't care anymore.  I still watch only to go REALLY?

I don't mind the main plot points for the most part, just how they get there.  The production value is top notch though.  Scenery, music, acting, and cinematography is all so good.  But the writing just so bad.  

I liked this though:

Kind of a knights tale vibe.  I love me some ACDC.
