Goofs

Cersei blames Tyrion for killing Myrcella and Tommen. Tyrion did not have, even remotely, any connection to their deaths: Myrcella was killed by the Sand Snakes and Ellaria as a payback for Oberyn's death; Tommen committed a suicide because Cersei murdered his wife and many more innocent people.

Dumbed down to the level of a cartoon strip
29 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

I have found this show to be enthralling, but this episode (even worse, actually: season finale, as I only found out after watching it) was like a slap in the face, and the disappointment only grows the more I think about it. As I was watching I couldn't help but get excited, but then quickly realised I just witnessed blatant abuse of my own and others' fascination and love for a great story.

I haven't read the books (I hope those who have can take refuge in them), but I very much enjoyed the way an intricate world was meticulously built up and used as stage for incredible plots, twists, battles, and great character development (which was all the more satisfying as characters we'd been led to believe were 'main' got swatted like flies, and others stepped forward).

The TV show did a great job of all this, but then at some point (perhaps when running out of book material) decided to (or could only manage to) pump this delicate foundation for cheap thrills and fan service, glossed over with spectacular Hollywood action scenes. Plot lines carefully laid over years have been torn up and clumsily tied together for the sake of some "awesome scenes", and nothing has been done protect the integrity of the GoT world or story. After this episode there is little left to excite anyone - who honestly cares about any of the characters anymore? All that's waiting for us is a clash of living vs dead - it's like we're all incredibly excited to see the next crappy zombie movie to come out.

The show has plenty of momentum left for a chance to redeem itself, but it will take hard work to patch together something respectable from the rubble left by these last episodes.
