    I didn't care for the Night King riding in on the dragon that now breaths ice? Lame.

    The red hair dude dies and we don't see any of it? Come on.

    Dude from the Iron Island just happens to bail to go pick up a new army...that was dumb as well.

    Things I liked:

    Bronn. He kills it in every show. Had me LOL a few times.
    Tyrian. He's great.
    Brienn and Jamie. That's going to happen.

    And I'm not spoiler tagging any of this. It is a 46 page thread on GoT. If you click this thread, you better have watched the show.

    Spoiler for the rest:

    Maybe Littlefinger died a little quickly seeing as he was pretty much the main villain in the series, but I couldn't stand all the weirdness between the stark sisters, so I'm glad that got cleared up, at least. Cersei sucks, and Jaime is more than seeing that now. She tried to head fake him with the Mountain killing him like she did w Tyrion, and she is really going overboard w all her lies--- Jaime clearly can't stand honorless actions. Jaime is the last seriously conflicted character in the show (with a new baby on the way and everything), and he's really emerged as one of my favorites. I loved that scene between Jon and Theon-- one of the really poignant and moving moments of the show (and very Tolkein-esque) and liked the scene where Theon gets his balls back so to speak. Whether he gets instantly gutted or not, he is about as close to being redeemed as you ever will see a fallen character in fiction (this side of Kylo Ren in a couple years. ) Admirably done season, considering they weren't adapting Martin, and wormholes notwithstanding.
    I was kind of curious why Tyrion was skulking about while the Targaryens were making whoopie.

    Red hair dude didn't die. He was standing on the part of the wall that didn't fall. Iron Island dude didn't just happen to go pick up the army, Cersei told Euron to do it.

    The best part of this season? All the superior-acting assholes who read the book can't come here and turn their nose up at your speculations and theories because they apparently got accepted to some prestigious PhD program that allowed them to read the GRM books. That's right, Collie Wollie.

    My going away thought last night....How was the Night King going to breach the wall with no dragon?

    How fortuitous.

    I thought he would have his underlings latch onto the wall and form a human ice ladder, which he would terrifyingly ascend and convert the Watch when he got to the top.

    The wildlings were nearly able to do it with a lot less people (especially giants) and less magic at a defended location.

    So...if you started Game of Thrones Season 1 Episode 1 last night, and watch one episode every night, you will finish up the Saturday evening before the Series Finale season premier. Do it!

    Like a buddy of FB said last night. Going through it again is like putting a puzzle together, that you've already done before, but now you know what you are doing.

    When is the Series Finale season finale? You should count back from that instead. Can you imagine watching a GOT per night and then having to wait a week for each of the last 10 episodes?

    After considerable debate, a few days ago Mrs. PAC and I decided to watch GoT, in part so we could to discuss it with three of our kids who love it. I was a bit apprehensive as the missus is repelled by violence and sex in movies, but she loves British costume dramas which I've convinced her this is. Anyway, we're already mid-way through Season 3 and despite some reservations, we're really into it (and tonight's episode was boob-free, much to the delight of one of us). We expected Tyrion to be the villain we're supposed to hate, but we love the character and Dinklage is truly a fine actor. And the many surprises and shocks each episode keep bringing us back. We'll catch up by the time, or shortly after, Season 8 begins in a couple of weeks. HBO Go is a blessing...

    I've been a GOT fan since season 1. During each season, I typically watched each episode several times during the week because I have bouts of insomnia and I just like taking in all the detail. I also tend to remember most of the content of films and shows that I enjoy. Last summer my spouse went to China for several weeks with her mother while I stayed home, worked, and binged on GOT at night since there was no competition for the remote. Last month, my spouse had the idea to watch an episode of GOT every night to get through all seven seasons before season 8 begins. I was enthusiastic at first but lately its become a chore. As an episode starts, I recall most of the scenes and just tune into the ones of interest to me. It is interesting to note some of the foreshadowing that the writers placed throughout when they knew were the story or plot lines were going. Likewise, its interesting to note some of the minor discrepancies when the writers decided to change course. Very much looking forward to season 8.

    I started listening to the Audiobooks for GOT on my commute. It enhances the TV show that much more. Good stuff.

    The nice thing about GOT is that each season is better than the last. As good as season 3 is wait till you get to 6 & 7. There are some truly great moments in the story.

    Yeah, but I feel like this last season was way rushed. They don't have time on the clock to get the fully marinated story out like they used to do, so now it's on fast forward a little.

    Which is a shame, but at least they are busting out this final season so we can get cracking on the Old Republic Star Wars trilogy!

    Or show incredible and uncharacteristic self-restraint by viewing this thread only up to the original broadcast date of the show one has binged to (I'm up to April 2014).

    That was awesome.

    The actor portraying Samuel Tarley handled both of his scenes exceptionally. Very good.

    Only five episodes left - they've got to cram a lot of things in to tidy this story up.

    - The truth about "who you are" scene kind of fell flat - was thinking it would be more.
    - Is Sansa acting the spoiled child again - or is she onto something?
    - Anyone get the vibe that Jon and Aria will end up together?
