"re-watching Game of Thrones..."


          

how was Arya not crowned queen at the end? she literally saved everybody.

I know she probably would've declined it but was it even proposed?

She was a bad chick, when she murked Littlefinger was probably my favorite scene of the series lol.

That might be on purpose.. lol.

I think after all that went down the last thing they want is a trained assassin with a temper on the Throne.

She wouldn’t want that shit anyways.

I watched the last two seasons waiting for someone to stab her when she least expected it and for that person to take off their face revealing themselves as Jaqen H'ghar who'd say something like "A girl has spat in the face of the Many Faced God...". How she betrayed them with no comebacks was baffling to me.

remember off the top of my head if it was him or the girl and they stabbed her and she jumped in the water and was nursed back to health by the lady she was supposed to kill and and they came back killed her and Arya got away I need to go back and watch that part but I think when she got back to Westeros she was safe

Well they're assassins with a moral code. She used them, betrayed them and escaped and they didn't come for her. The whole point of being an assassin is to finish the job not just do a bit of it. It was her perfect ending for me anyway - Jaqen shocking everyone with the kill out of the blue.

they didnt take a stand. it was an ending to satisfy everyone so in the end no side said "fuck yeah!" and no counter side said "that was bullshit" instead EVERYONE said "well...that...was something. meh."

In response to Reply # 13


          

he gave them the ending template years ago, while later covering his own ass (my books may be different, this is just the show ending!).

after A Storm of Swords, Martin kept expanding his narrative with a ton of peripheral characters and arcs that he seemingly has writer's block trying to wrap up. never mind finishing the original story in a meaningful way.

In response to Reply # 19


  

          

Probably even dumber, just all about honor and trying to do what’s right. Considering how his father and brother died, he did not learn much from it. But it’s not just him, Cat and Rob both make terrible mistakes. Sansa is so awful in the beginning.

In response to Reply # 20


  

          

Ned trying to reign in Tywin, or Trust Cersei to skip town, and a bunch of other things all while never shutting up about honor

Ned to his credit wouldn't have dissed the Frey girl but I assume if Rob did marry her it would just make it easier for Tywin to get him through the Freys.

Cat was dumb. Rickon was dumb (as evidenced by his running) Sansa got wiser as she grew up but it took a lot of suffering to get her there. Arya was the only smart one.

But lied to his wife for 20 years about his sister’s baby.

Then how did Rob think that shit would work out? And that totally went against the “Stark code of honor”.

And Catelyn was a special kind of dumb.

Sansa ended up being one of my favorite by the end the show.

helping set things in motion early on because she wanted to be with Jeffrey.

I have no sympathy for Sansa.

I just don’t like her.

I mean it was some hardcore shit watching the dothraki basically get swallowed up and go extinct... but even that moment becomes trash when you find out a week later the dothraki grew back

As many people got killed they played it safe. The episode before that where they're all hanging out getting drunk the night before was better

But that last season spoiled things so much I can't watch it again.

I watched it all the way through again when we were at season 5 and it was a real pleasure. Caught so much of what I missed the first time and many scenes had that added significance when you know what was going to happen later.

When I think about how it ended it spoils any desire I have to watch it again. I kind of want to rewatch all those dark ass episodes on my new OLED though.

The last season is always gonna leave a stain. Like the above poster said, those last eps cancel out any thirst for a rewatch

or make the early seasons any less enjoyable.

i never cared about the white walkers and any of the supernatural stuff (except for dragons) so the way it played out i could care less.

nothing necessarily happened that wasn't supposed to, it just all felt sloppy and rushed, which is more unfortunate because everything outside of the writing in the last season was still amazing.

story wsise it went from books to the first paragraph on a wiki page. travelling that took a whole season suddenly took 10 minutes. it was all pretty jarring and disappointing, but i'll still always love the show.

Take that part out and it would have been possible to create an incredible show. Difficult, I know, because they are integral to the whole arc but it may have been better without that distraction.

i didn't mind how the stories and characters played off them, but the walkers as a whole were pretty uninteresting. They were just zombies with a couple extra details. The night king was pretty boring too. you could only do so much with a mute super villain.

True, they didn’t stick the landing but it’s still a very entertaining show.

I’m not on the last season yet but it’s going to be interesting rewatching it.

I’m also not as invested as most so I don’t care about every little fucking detail or story arc being completed.

i just find it really satisfying how Drogon rips through everything so easily

before they start killing civilians anyway.
