 Game of Thrones S8 **SPOILERS OBV**
Topic Originator: DayMan

It's finally back!
I've just finished watching episode 1 and really enjoyed it.
I fully expect sh*t to hit the fan next week.

A few questions for those in the know:

Is that the 1st that Jamie & Bran have seen each other since season 1 episode 1?

Also, what happened to the rest of the Umbers? Have I missed/forgot something?

Also, loved the Rob Mcelhenny cameo :)

Was good, didn’t string out the reunions but I guess they only have 6 episodes to wrap it all up. Suprised they didn’t bump a main character right from the off though!

Was thinking the same, that’s defo the first time Jamie has seen him since the start!

Just sitting here drenched in my own negativity!

Bran and the night king are the same entity. Bran is the key to it all. Jon snow and all the rest of them are meaningless. It’s all about bran and winterfell. Maybe the dragons under kings landing might be important...

It's Bran that made the Mad King go mad. Anyway bit of a slow episode. I'm really just wanting them to get on with it and break out the nunchuks. Be amazed if both Jon Snow and Daenerys make it to the end without breaking bad and then getting killed.

Episode 2 clearly a filler episode to tie up a few loose ends and set the tone for an epic battle.
With 4 episodes to go, it will be interesting how they pan this out with the war imminent.
The confrontation with the dragons will play a crucial factor in the outcome.

If you only turn up to moan then do it elsewhere

Wow!! What an ending! The scene with the Dothraki flames going out in the distance one by one was brilliant and made the situation very eerie. The part with the Night King brushing Jon Snow aside making him look totally irrelevant was superb too. Easily the best programme ever. Only slight cop out tonight was that so many of the main character made it when it looked doubtful. I don’t think that would have happened a few seasons ago.

I seriously thought at one point however that the white walkers were going to win! I couldn’t see any way past it until Arya saved the day!

Aye, I thoroughly enjoyed the last episode (especially the Dothraki extermination). Agree with Ross re the cop outs with most of the main characters surviving and also how Arya managed to even get near the night king when he was surrounded with white walkers ?? Did they not see her ? If she was disguised in some way fair enough but that wasn't apparent in the scene.

Watching it at the moment and the fact that you can hardly see anything, as it's so dark, totally ruined it. Sounded good though.

Brilliant ending though. I even cheered

Whilst very impressive, I too thought it totally unrealistic to expect most of the main characters to survive.
At one point it looked like Jamie and the other two were fighting hundreds for what seemed like half an hour stranded against the wall.
Thoroughly enjoyable nonsense all the same but exhausting just watching it!

That was spectacular and would have been a fitting finale but we still have three episodes to go.
On reflection I think they pulled a masterstroke by getting the big showdown out of the way because if not that would have hung over the season if it were left to the very end. As it is what is left now is the fight for the Iron Throne and all the twists and turns that go with that. Fully expect some characters to betray others r and break bad in the final hours of the show.

I think there has to be a lot more to come from Bran's story line as outside of filling in some of the historic gaps such as John's background; his part has been relatively light on substance compared to almost all of the other main characters.

The darkness was brutal, couldn’t see a thing or tell who was alive. Couldn’t even tell which dragon was which and whether there are now one or two alive.
Thought Arya was great and fitted with the character journey but leaves you wondering what the point of Bran is. The wee lassie and the giant was tremendous too. The Dothraki bit was fantastic, really original and every but it does leave Daenerys a bit exposed and clears the pathway for a resolution for Jon Snow to become the true king a bit too neatly.

Shows lost its edge last two seasons since it overtook the books but be happy to be proven wrong

The hopelessness of the situation dragged on far too long though to the extent that it moved past tense to pointless but least the ending redeemed it.

I liked the dark bit, negated the dragons as that would have made the battle pretty quick and I also imagine not really knowing what is going on was probably quite realistic.. agree they let some battles go on too long with one or two folk seemingly surrounded for ages... But the ending was immense (loved the wee bit of wind in the hair as every one focused on the on what was going to happen with bran)

As for being in the books, I wonder how much was Martin's stuff? He may not have finished/published the rest of the story but he will have had some work done and ideas plotted out?

It was an amazing episode. By far the best thing on TV.

Like some of you, I expected more 'main' characters to go in the battle. With Brienne being knighted the week before I was pretty sure her story was over and she'd be gone (although I'm glad she's not!). Tormund would appear to be indestructible after all the battles he's been through.

Being a girl, Theon's death really upset me. He's had one hell of a story with us loving/hating/pitying/empathising with him over the years.

The Hound has to have one last battle with The Mountain surely. It wouldn't surprise me if Jon and Dany both died before the end and I half expect to see Sansa on the throne with Arya as her hand.

Bronne still has to make an appearance too!

Watched episode late and well...what on earth was that? The show really has just lost the plot and gone for 'Spectacle over compelling storytelling'. 8 seasons of Dothraki and White Walker build up, gone after 1 hour... 4 character deaths....the battle for Hogwarts had more character deaths ffs. Sam, Brienne, Jamie should all have died along with Dany.

One of those wow this is so cool and nervewracking episodes I've ever seen...and then you think about it and just laugh as how stupid the series has gotten over crapping over character development and build up.

Show had 3 episodes left and honestly, I feel we're going to get a daft, fan service happily ever after plot. :(

Fan service being all the fan favourites surviving miraculous situations (Last episode was shocking in that respect). Frankly, if anyone sits on the throne by the end I'm done, the show went to absolute buggery in season 4 when they started producing their own dialogue and jumping the stories about. Never seen a series drop in quality quite as much from the books as A Song of Ice and Fire. Bring me back to quality battles like Blackwater and Hard home. 2 brilliant battle scenes in the show that aren't the terribly directed etc...

Pod saves Tyrion in the books I believe? I'd say Podrick backstabbing the drunken, more useless Kingsguard in the back is far FAR more believable than main characters surviving being in the front lines of a literal wave of undead.

Episode 3 was visually stunning, absolutely stinking from a tactical point of view. 13yr old me playing Rome: Total war knew headlong light cavalry charges, front-line artillery, minimal wall defenders and spearwalls infront of defensive structures (Fire pits) were hilariously bad decisions.

Suppose that's what you get from the directors who brought you Ghost vanishing, then reappearing 2 seasons later almost half the size and romantic dragon flights...

Why watch a programme about dragons and the army of the dead then get upset about military tactics not being realistic?
Anyway, I doubt the books will be that relevant to the ending as 90% of the audience haven’t read the books so it wouldn’t make sense to the majority of viewers.

I googled what the best settings were for my model of Samsung and after playing around with the settings I've managed to improve the picture balance quite a bit.

Watched the episode again and it made a huge difference as you can actually make out the bits I think the producers intended you to be able to see. The downside is that although the HD picture has improved quite a bit it seems to have made the standard def pictures quite a bit worse.

Seemed to be increasing the backlight setting and adjusting the contrast and sharpness that helped the most although I think it varies by model.

Also changed the sound setting from standard to music and I couldn't believe the difference in quality. The standard setting leaves the sound quite muffled and we have to turn the volume up a lot whereas the music setting really clears up voices and seems to separate speech from noise and background music on a program. Surprising the improvement it made.

Might be worth a fiddle if you can be bothered.

I think it's more to do with popular characters getting unexpectedly killed off in the earlier series and then seeing more popular characters surviving impossible odds including one with only one hand.
The series is ending at the right time before it becomes just a fandom thing.
Just hope the original author of the books has an input into the ending as to how he envisaged it.

Exactly, look at the quality of writing and dialogue and how it drops off a vertical cliff around season 3/4. Never had an issue with dragons, giants, krakens etc either. What I have a problem with is how the show built up this massive threat, and then they're gone...like that. Seriously can't see George finishing the story as bizarrely as the show is

Pretty much what I said Andrew. Read it in a few places over a period of time but he gave an interview couple weeks ago where he’s quite clear on the matter. (I doubt in reality he will ever get round to ending it anyway tbh)


https://watchersonthewall.com/game-thrones-ending-not-going-different-george-r-r-martins-author-says/

Martin adds that the show being “a different version” of the books is “true of every adaptation.” In fact, when asked about whether he worries people will have the show’s ending in mind before the books, he makes it clear there’s not that much of a difference after all: “I don’t think Dan and Dave’s ending is gonna be that different from my ending, because of the conversations we did have,” he says, decisively putting many rumors to rest. “But on certain secondary characters there may be big differences.”

Unless for you discussion of “the ending” heavily involves the resolution of secondary characters whose path has diverged significantly (say, Bronn) or who don’t even feature in the show (say, Arianne), Martin has now confirmed the show’s “ending” will be essentially his own, at least as it relates to the main characters and the world.

After a lot of thought I too have concluded that it’s all got a bit naff. Mindless killing offs of characters has ersed it. So we’ll never find out who the voice in the flame was that spoke to varys when he was a child? The clever characters have become dumb. The writers have obviously struggled since the source material ran out. What a let down

Did Cersei and Jamie definitely die in the collapsing rubble?

My biggest beef with this season is it feels like they've taken a story that's so big and has taken 7 seasons to build and decided to try and pack too much into this final season and some of the story lines dont feel like they've been closed down as well as they could have.

Pretty much, book readers know that the show and book will very likely finish the same way, but the journey there couldn't be more different. Dany going from Save the world in E3 to burning 1 million innocents in E5? I could have understood if they had avoided killing Raegal in such a stupid manner in E4 and instead have him be shot by one of the ballista during the siege, ideally by accident once the bells had begun to ring and the siege was essentially over.

Would love nothing more than for Disney to be monitoring the situation, see what a mess D&D have made and remove them from the Star wars trilogy they are supposed to be directing.

If The Hound has gone I'm done with it.

This series has got a bit daft.


You'd be as well sticking with it as only one more episode to go :)


I might boycott it out of principle.

I'll miss the title music and the feeling of excitement that it generated every single week.

Quite a flat final episode which was clearly set up for several spin off series. $$$$

If you only turn up to moan then do it elsewhere

That was my exact thought as well AAPS. I still stand by my earlier post about trying to cram too much into one final series.

Weak ending to a great series. I found myself actually wanting to end halfway through the final episode. Tarnished forever.

I think I must be the only person in the world who has never seen an episode of this.

Definitely not, there's thousands of other folk out there that feel the need to point out that they haven't watched a single episode, like it's some sort of obscure badge of honour, there's even meme's about it.

In terms of tying up last week's messy acceleration...it did well imo...admittedly there are some more invested than I.

Pivotal was the the decision the Dragon made....

I Hope You're Ok Today....

Best we could have hoped for with the car crash of a season they've written sadly I guess? Glad I never need to see Grey worm looking like he's sh1t himself anymore, absolutely terrible acting

The fact that you felt the need to chime in to tell people you don't know anything about the topic of conversation is the weird response, there's lots of things that I'm not interested in, so I just leave them to it, I certainly don't feel the need to join in.

On point thought the finish was ok and not worth some of the over reaction there has been. Whole thing has undoubtedly been rushed which is the biggest fault and with more time would have been better executed and more satisfying.

Weirdly it was the show runners Weiss & Benioff who wanted the short season. HBO said they could have as much time as they want

They've got Star Wars films to get into.

Let's hope the Mouse does the same as its response to fan backlash over how stinking the Last Jedi was and punting RJ. Would be the most poetic justice watching them ruin the show only to lose something like Star Wars

Good for you bud. We are all different. No need for the smartass comment though.

I think probably the reason I posted was because Im actually surprised I haven't watched any of it. Im pretty sure I would like it.
Problem is I would start it then spend many sleepless nights and unproductive days catching up.

The Last Jedi was an abysmal film. Absolutely toxic piece of far left propaganda disguised as a Star Wars film.
I haven't seen S8 yet, but it seems like the showrunners totally Rian Johnson'd Game of Thrones. It's a pity, because S1-7 were brilliant.
Star Wars is pretty much dead these days anyway. And if they bring their Season 8 form to SW, that might be the final deathblow for the franchise.

i quite liked rouge one (if that's the one where they got the plans of the death star but all died)... thought it was the best of all the news ones (anything after the original 3 films i'm classing as new)

Rogue One was quality. Best of the new bunch by a mile.
