I thought there were some pretty big spoilers in that video. I think I'm gunna just not watch any more preview / teaser / analysis content and just be surprised at what I see when the episodes air.

My thoughts on episode 3 :

Spoiler

The episode was really badass. But seriously, Arya just goes in with some shadowstep level shit and then does a Vaas Montenegro on the Night King? Arya of all people? And in episode 3? Also what the hell was Daenerys thinking letting the wights swarm her dragon?

I'm curious to see what they are going to do next, but the Night King was hyped up as the big evil for several seasons now. And they killed him off halfway through the season. I'm not sure if I'm happy with it.

No Spoilers from me.

10/10 action and movie making 2/10 story and writing

I am saying since the end of the last season that they are going to fuck up the ending and now its almost certain.

You got to give D&D credit for bringing the show on screen but they just don't have it in them. 

 

Its still the best TV ever and great craft by everyone involved thats not D&D. Unfortunately it ran out of breath before the finish line to be a true Masterpiece. Like George Lucas they were at the right place at the right time but they aren't really masters of their craft just lucky kids who had others make the magic happen at times and when it was their time to shine they failed.

When The Godfather was written you had Mario Puzo and Francis Ford Coppola writing the Screenplay. In the beginning you had George R R Martins writing thats your Puzo but you never had the Coppola and when there was no more book material you had neither. Just David and Dan two Hollywood Hacks shitting on their source material and making trashy inauthentic decisions like so many other adaptations do.

All spoiler (or wannabe spoilers) below.

 

The Night King has been a threat since season 1, episode 1, yet he can be just -poof- gone during his first encounter with a real enemy force, then I say they ran out of imagination. And using a lame forgotten hand trick? Well then, it is easy to see how this will end.

Another forgotten hand is Bronn. He will kill Cersi with the crossbow she gave him to do the brothers in with. Then hunt up Tyrion and ask for his promised 'DOUBLE'.

Bonus points if he can position a scorpion to nail the Mountain to a wall also.  How is that for lack of imagination?

I have no idea what I expected, but to whack him so easily just seemed rather MEH. Maybe I expected too much.

At least they did not run out of money and hustle through the last few books within 2 episodes like the expanse crew did. - DRUM out

Spoiler

I thought the last episode was awesome, with some real tension and a lot less of the unbelievable bullshit they did in the Battle of the Bastards.

It wasn't flawless though.  It would have been way cooler if:

The white walkers were shown being bad-asses killing heroes with some effort and killing extras with no effort, like the Battle at Hardhome. And individually raising smaller groups of dead into undead along the way. Instead, the only thing they did was walk behind their leader.

Jon Snow charged the Night King immediately with Longclaw ready to end him, and didn't stop his charge mid-flight this time, but the Night King finished raising his hands/the dead barely in time, with the undead grabbing at Jon's feet and grabbing/tripping him right before he could get there.  Then the Night King casually turning and walking towards Winterfell again, the implication being that Jon is no longer any threat to him.

If Theon, instead of pointlessly throwing his life away in that hopeless charge, sees some spent dragon-glass tipped arrows on the ground, picks them up and fires two shots at the Night King.  The Night King dodges them bullet-time-Matrix style, but they each hit one of the white walkers behind him.  Small groups of undead instantly de-animate, saving two heroes fighting elsewhere.  The Night King steps forward inhumanly fast and impales Theon, ending him.

If more/any former heroes that died but weren't burnt earlier in the series are seen in the battle.  For example, Karsi.

Each of the civilians in the crypts has a piece of dragon glass as a dagger, and they defend themselves against the risen Starks, losing some people but killing some dead along the way.  But then the people lost occasionally rise and they have to do it over again.  Tyrion takes an ancient ceremonial shield off the remains of a de-animated ancient Stark and does better than most, seeing as he has been in a few fights before.

If Melisandre mass-raised a large number of defenders to the living side in the same way as the Night King did it to the undead side, as her final act, burning out her necklace and dying soon after.  To be really clever, have the Night King squeeze the life out of Arya as Melisandre is doing this, but Melisandre finishes her act right as the Night King throws Arya's lifeless corpse to the ground and turns to Bran.  Arya awakens, the Night King immediately senses it and looks at her, and gives us his shocked face, but Arya stabs him in the shin, shattering him before he can do anything.  We find out next episode that some of the now-living for a little while fought for the dead, as they were raised by the Night King, were re-killed, and then were raised by Melisandre.

The Doth'raki charge was so dumb tactically, but incredibly effective to reinforce the sense of dread.

Pretty sure I had a couple other things but I'm going to have to re-watch to remember them.

I thought Arya's kill of the Night King was really good.  Original, dramatic, and well executed. 

I like that it was 80 minutes long, once I realized it was over an hour and still not over, I couldn't anticipate the ending any more. 

They went overboard on heroes being surrounded by undead, or literally covered by undead, yet still apparently surviving somehow.

Not mad the Night King threat is over before the half-way point of the season.  With only six episodes, this had to happen in either episode three or episode four, all along.  I think episode three makes more sense or else the ending will feel rushed.

As someone who likes to avoid watching shows until all episodes are available to watch in a good binge session, it's still been fun hearing about little bits and pieces of what's been happening in this show over the years. Apart from a certain "colourful" wedding and some fuss about some guy holding a door (open or shut, I have no idea), I don't even know the storyline is even about.

Now that it is all over, and I'm now hearing some disappointing things about the final season, is it worth the time to binge or should I avoid it at all costs?

Long, interesting story and many interacting arcs.

It stays solid until they get into the producers discretion parts (beyond the written books), so I would say yeah, worth the trip.

Here is the point -> it had to END somehow. No matter how that occurred, people would be displeased. - DRUM out

Heard about a lot of fans want a re-writen as they were disappointed in a lot of the story line. Of course there is no chance of that. Last I checked it was over 300k of sigs heh. I was disappointed it last few episodes, but not the cinematics ( they really were awesome and really made CGI look like it was real.

Rule is 6 months don't spoil anything.

Spoilers should be stuck on those last two

While I can agree, why anyone who would be injured by a spoiler is even looking at forum threads on GOT baffles me.

No clickity click is the best method to not get spoiled, but whiners going to whine, so... - DRUM out

      It looks quite promising. Not the typical WD, but several dozen people who you play.
      Rather play it on uplay instead of epic, It's not on steam for launch.

      Anyone playing Anthem? The action is pretty nice and they nailed the flying Mech part. The story, forced silly conversations and characters pretty much suck (man Bioware has really gone downhill over the last few years 😥 ).  I'm reapoman in game in case anyone wants to join up.
