    Or maybe you could *gasp* not respond for once.

    The writing at the end was bad. There is no doubt. It was like they got to the end and did not know how to do it. Huge leaps made without ryhme or reason and just some flat out cliche' BS. Just sad. But I agree that you can still go back and look at it when they were taking their time to build it up.

    The problem with this episode is that the producers weren't content with leaving the ending open. Drogon flying off with Dany could have ended "The Game". But that would have been too much like The Sopranos, and people would have been up in arms without further resolution.

    The writers put themselves in a bit of a corner with Jon killing Dany but with them wanting Jon to ultimately live. Most of the awkwardness stemmed from that. They might have included a scene in which Greyworm explains that he doesn't want to rule, that he wants to go to Naath to honor Missandie. That would make make him accepting the Jon Snow compromise more understandable. The Dothraki have a history of just splitting once their leader dies, so their sailing back East is more believable.

    That dork thinks he must always have the last word, which is why I rarely waste my time with him but he tries to ruin every thread with his political BS. Really insecure about that. Watch, I’ll bet he responds to this.

    Arya: What is west of Westeros?

    Jon: I don't know because it never mattered and has absolutely nothing to do with any plot line in the show or book. Why do you ask?

    Arya: Because although it is completely out of line with my character, but I am going to go there. Maybe so there could be a spin off of the "adventures of Arya"

    Jon: That's funny because you are not a sailor or adventurer and I am sure your family that you fought so hard to get back to could use your skills to defend their newly formed kingdom against the fighting between the houses to fill the power void in Westeros

    Arya: Well that would not allow them to have a shot of me riding into the sunset on a boat from the non-existent stark navy looking all excited about my future. Besides, now that the war is over everyone will live in harmony and there will not be a need for a powerful assassin as myself..

    I think you misquoted posts. Not sure what this has to do with anything I said in the post you quoted of mine.

    It’s funny because you’re the dork who always insists on having the first word...then gets bent out of shape when I respond. Perhaps if you didn’t insist on starting it every time.....it wouldn’t happen. Derp.

    This... And in typical internet chest beating fashion people start calling people names like snowflake and bring politics into it because you are unsatisfied with the actual writing and not how it ended.

    Not completely out of line with Arya's character. When she was in bed recovering from a Waif attack with the theater group, she tells the lead actress who has been nursing her that if she could do anything, go anywhere, she would attempt to find what is "West of Westeros".

    Let it go man. You don’t have to prove anything. We know you have to have the last word, and inject politics into everything.

    You annoy everyone OTB.

    Yeah. I dont care about any of that extraneous b.s. that people are trying to throw in there. If this was the path chosen, thats fine. Sure I have rooting interests, we all do; its one of the reasons the show was so damn great from the get go.

    It was the quarter assed effort (not even half assed) they put into resolving all of it. The writing clearly fell off last season, but not to a level this egregious. The writing was shit. Its that simple.

    You’re the one who started it as always buttercup. Maybe if you weren’t so sensitive over me gasp! Not liking what Disney has done with the Star Wars franchise, we could have forgone about 20 posts in this thread and counting.

    But that’s obviously beyond you.

    Oh, and last I checked, you don’t speak for everyone on the board.

    So it's settled then that Breaking Bad remains the greatest TV show ever?

    Your initial statement was that "Disney ruined the Star Wars series with their PC politics".

    No one in this thread agrees with that.

    I didn’t say PC politics. I said with their politics.

    And I’m very far from alone in holding that view.

    Breaking Bad was fantasy fun, but a bit too unbelievable.

    Correct answer is The Wire.

    You two are arguing over the new Star Wars trilogy? Kylo Ren is a limp wristed bitch. Those new ones have been pretty damn terrible. At least Disney has been consistenly shitty in their movies, we didnt get the major let down that GoT gave us by building it up all this time.

    I was paraphrasing dummy.

    And no one in this thread agrees that the Disney Star Wars are worse than Episodes I,II, & III. Although I am sure SOMEWHERE there are some prepper weirdos who agree with you.

    But Breaking Bad was the best in consistent quality. There were no bad seasons. No loose ends. Every actor performed well. The writing was always great. The final season was perfectly paced. The finale was the best.

    Hmmm just above your post is someone who seems to more or less agree with my view on Star Wars.

    Who knew that this would touch such a nerve with several of our resident Leftists? They sure are a sensitive bunch.

    So I understand.... The last 3 are the Disney and the first 3 from the 70's are the "Originals"? The older ones beat the snot out of the last 3.... Hiring Lian Niesson to sleep walk thru a couple hours didn't save that one... Jar Jar was the pits.... There were a LOT of wasted moments that did not make a movie in the last films...

    The ending with Jesse living was not credible. The chief investigator being the brother in law!!! was very soap opera-ish. WW escaping certain death five times per season was not believable.

    I loved BB but it was a fantasy show.

    Nope. Must swing the sword yourself. Unless your “big lizard” is just a euphemism for your pecker.

    Sansa didn't swing the sword wrt Ramsey.

    I think a dragon or a pack of starved rottweilers are as good of a tool as a sword.

    That was a Lucas and Spielberg thing if I remember. Spielberg replaced some guns carried by agents and replaced them with walkie talkies in ET so I am sure Lucas felt some pressure to do so in his movies...or vice versa.

    There were so many plot lines being built up and abandoned.

    What was the point of Jon being a Targarean and having the better claim to the throne? In the end where did that come in? The ending made it completely unnecessary other than maybe his ability to get pas the dragon. And then it did not matter because they all decide no to elect a king? It just seems so out of line with the whole history of the story that somehow these people would all of a sudden agree to play nice without some external force to make them play nice.

    So look at how Westeros is going to be lead

    Bran? How the hell does Bran maintain power going forward? He has no money, no army, no leadership skills, his family is not even part of the kingdom. Tyrion? His family is decimated. His Army is gone, everyone pretty much hates him. Bron: a former sellsword who has no house, no army, no money; gets his power from Bran and Tyrion. Sam? He is now magically a Grand Maester? At least he has a house and armies more than likely. Greyworm? Please... There would have been a humongous power void in Westeros and each house would have been fighting to fill the void. Unless some strong character would have stepped in, there would have been Chaos. They killed Dany and replaced her with....Bran.

    The ending has no real basis in what made this series great which was it was founded not in fantasy, but in a realistic view of power and politics mixed with a bit of different forces (Lord of Light, faceless men, White Walkers). If they could have come to the Bran conclusion by having him wield some actual power of some sort that would make much more sense.

    These are my exact feelings. Bran being king is not satisfying. The rest of the ending would of been great if the final season wouldn't of been so clunky due to pacing and giant time jumps.

    In Ramsey’s case, much better.

    In season 5, Danny had Dario do the beheading. Worse yet, she looked away.

    Bran is the only one possible to break the wheel since he can’t have kids. That is the major theme of this season.

    That is a good point, and maybe I could come around to Bran being on the throne, but some character and story build up would of helped a lot with that.
