Once again, the episode has leaked. 4 weeks in a row. Be cautious.

After the poop that was ep. 3, I expect more of what GOT does best (see ep. 2).

I mean it was a flawed episode, but I certainly wouldn't describe it at poop. It was still spectacular in spots.

I see ep. 3 as a flawed experiment. It had some good visuals, and I understand what it was going for, but it overall didn't work. Right now my issues are with the direction of the series and how it seems to now value spectacle over story.

i suspect GOT's thematic narratives have less to do with storied conclusions and more to do with setting up the three new offshoot medieval fantasy epic TV series HBO and george r. r. martin are negotiating.

No poop is putting it kindly. And well poop can be spectacular too

Just 1 post to sum up: 1. Sh*t gonna get real.
2. Brienne and Jaime...No.

1. I really hate Bronn now.
2. So much for Jamie's redemption story
3. Bummed that it looks like Tormund's story is done.
4. If Dany starts roasting innocents in Kings Landing, Jon might have to turn on her.
5. Glad to see Varys back in the story, but it makes me miss Littlefinger too.
6. Doesn't seem consistent with Cersei's character to spare Tyrion's life yet again.

Congratulations, Cersei...you're a monster. I'll be surprised if the writers give her any additional opportunities to display any shred of humanity from here on out.

Can't believe Dany expected Cersei to just give up, especially after Cersei won Round 1. Jamie and Brienne...

#2 made me cringe more than when Arya was deflowered.

Jon deserves to die for not hugging Ghost.

Well, she did spare Tyrion's life yet again. I can only guess the fact that he's her brother actually means something to her even though she's hated him her whole life.

Jaime could have been a little more savvy on his way out of Winterfell.

re: Game of Thrones (S8E04) -- 78 minute episode -- “The Last of the Starks” -- 5/5/19

When Tyrion mentioned Cersei's unborn child, did Euron wonder how Tyrion knew she was pregnant? That was the first time Tyrion was back at King's Landing since Euron got confirmation of her pregnancy, so didn't he wonder how Tyrion already knew she had a bun in the oven? Do you think he'll figure out that she was already expecting before their roll in the hay? And then he'll be pissed at being duped?

I was thinking the same thing,but we don't know how much time has passed. A LOT of events happened in the final 15 minutes and there had to be significant time passage between them.

Something is up with all of the characters returning North. I'm not 100% sure all is well beyond the wall.

I think Jaime is going back to Kings Landing to kill Cersei. As is Arya. I also think Euron has his eye on the Iron Throne, as well. And now Greyworm is in vendetta mode, too. So who gets to do the deed?

Those dragons are effective in battle, but they’re easy to take down.

Nice play on Dani’s part to legitimize Gendry and give him Storms End. It puts a Stark ally on her team.

Re: Game of Thrones (S8E04) -- 78 minute episode -- Episode 71 -- 5/5/19

don't get your knickers in a scabbycake stink just yet.cersei may have been the serena williams of lobbed flaming turds at one time but the courtyard cage match to rule 7 kingdom's remains anybodies crapshoot.
for all we know the earless, hairless and in dire straits Ghost or that beefy idiot eurine greyjoy could end up on the iron throne .
it's anybody's GAME.......to the throne :
If you’re worried about what’s to come in the final episodes of the series, you’re not wrong. The series’ writer and producer, Bryan Cogman, recently shared that audience opinion does not factor into their decisions."We just have to tell the story we want to tell and feel the rhythm of the story as we're laying it out," Cogman explained. "There aren't any conversations about what people are going to think. If it feels right, that's what we do.”

So sorry Miss Sandy.

She should have grabbed onto Cersei and leapt from the wall.
