Did You Know?


In the novels, the Golden Company consists of 10,000 soldiers, not 20,000, and it has never been hired by the Lannisters or the Ironborn, but by Jon Connington - for helping his protégé (allegedly) Aegon VI Targaryen (son of Rhaegar and Elia) to conquer Westeros. See more »


Tyrion tells Jon there are one million people in King's Landing. In Game of Thrones: The Bear and the Maiden Fair, Jaime said the city had a population of approximately half a million people. See more »


Cersei Lannister: If those things come for us there, will be no kingdoms to rule. Everything we suffered will have been for nothing. Everything we lost will have been for nothing. The crown accepts your truce. Until the dead are defeated, they are the true enemy. In return, the King in the North will extend this truce. He will remain in the North where he belongs. He will not take up arms against the Lannister's. He will not chose sides.

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.
