Game of Thrones - Season EIGHT (No book wankers)

Recommended Posts

Decent establishing episode, although it's been 8 series so not sure why they need one. Thought it was a little short, I had heard that due to being the final series, the episodes would all be longer.

absolutely shit my pants when that child on the wall started screaming. Was watching on laptop with headphones on. Also, I've forgotten something: Is Cersei pregnant already?

The first couple are normal length and then we get the movie like episodes, or so I'm told.

Don't know spoiler etiquette for ep 1, but here's my HOT TAKE/Predictions:

Does it seem to anyone else like they're setting up a few characters for a 'nothing ever changes' type ending?

I can see Samwell being imprisoned by Daenarys, proclaiming him as some sort of Westerosi Fake News peddler for the Jon stuff, alongside Jaime Lannister who she hates. Samwell tells Jaime about the Jon thing, at which point Jaime escapes and towards the end of the show (After Daenarys/Jon have taken Kings Landing) he arrives and puts a sword through the back of Dany. He's immediately torched alive by dragons, and lives for eternity in peoples minds as the guy that stabs monarchs in the back - the thing he's been trying to shake off.

Jon, being Jon, I can see immediately bequeathing the throne to Sansa - saying he never wanted to be King - and disappearing North to Lord over Winterfell. I think as he leaves, he takes with him the SECRET BABY of Cersei/Euron to protect him/her from any tyrannical backlash after the war is over.

I don't think predicting the end for Game of Thrones characters is limited to wrestling fans.

Wrestling fans are just better at it.

I missed out the bit at the end when Ned Stark comes out to 'I AM A REAL WESTEROSI', mugs for the crowd and takes the throne for himself.

Is it just my TV/the Now TV picture or did anyone else find the show incredibly dark (literally not morally)? There were scenes like

the Jaime reveal

 where I couldn't see a thing that was happening.

I hate Bran Stark and his face like a half buttered bollock.

Had this discussion the other day — did they look at the parents of the lad, and say "he's a perfectly acceptable looking little kid, and we anticipate that he's going to grow up looking like a factory-reject knacker, which will suit his role as a weird twat"?

Edison surviving and then telling everyone to attack Tormund because ”He’s got blue eyes!” had me in stitches

Im suprised Bran didn’t freeze to death after someone left him outside all night

I love how Winterfell turned into Springfield by having its geography change depending on what the episode needed as it randomly developed a babbling brook and a mountainous region for the Dragons to go flying around when Jon & Daney nipped out for a quick root

The CGI of the dragons flying was something out of Jason & The Argonauts. Fucking awful compared to how good the CGi usually is in this show.

Yes it was downright dreadful when Jon hopped on. Can only assume they've held back a lot of the budget for the big battle scenes.

FFS with all the spoiler blocks the day after the show has aired. If anyone is reading this thread today without watching the show yet they are a fucking idiot and deserve getting spoiled.

That dragon riding scene was fucking absurd:

Seconded. No spoiler tags required in this thread at all unless there's a shit quality episode leak again like last season. If it's been on tv it's fair game; no-one wants to click bloody spoiler tags in every post.

I enjoyed the first episode and actually remembered most of what was going on for a change. It's all much easier to follow now that most of the characters are dead.
