    I legit believe it is, and that's why the show snapped back so hard it has whiplash.

    His arc and the TV arc diverged so far that suddenly trying to get characters into the position GRRM envisioned they'd be in by the end could be why everything beyond the 20 minute mark this episode didn't fit characters existing motivations and just went with it because plot said so.

    Just a theory. But I liken it to the closing days of Smallville when this alternate take on Superman that had long since made multiple massive changes to the standard take suddenly had a hard and nonsensical snap back into trying to fit the classic version of the mythos where dead characters came back because plot said.

    Tyrion is only a prisoner as far as Greyworm is concerned. To the Lords of Westeros He is the last remaining heir to House Lannister.

    Watched a few of the older episodes at the weekend and it did not help this trainwreck one bit. Made it so clear in contrast that it was absent any kind of pacing and witticism that people fell in love with the series for.

    I hope sackfuls of steamers are being delivered through the writer's and director's letterboxes today.

    "You are my queen, now and always" stab. This scene would have been cringey on a Mexican daytime soap.
    Put the first 15mins of this episode on the end of last wks episode. End with the Mad Queen's glorious speech of future conquests.

    Well that's just ruined a run through from me at some point, that's got to be one of the worst endings to a series ever.

    Oh well it's over.
    I feel sorry for the generation of teen-agers that grew up with this show defining their formative years. Trolololololol.

    Next stop the Witcher series..... Helllllll yeaaaaaah

    I can't wait for that but worried Netflix will ruin it.

    Underwhelmed to say the least. This season has been so rushed and it's shown with awful dialogue. Fair enough that some people have enjoyed it, but when you have what looks like at least a 80/20 split in favour of haters, you've cocked something up.

    It's almost a guarantee.

    The only thing that can save TV now is the LoTR series and its billion dollar budget.

    Wait, why did Drogon melt the throne and fly off :p

    Why is there a nights watch? :D Also, the unsullied left, why does he even need to go now?

    Nonsense.

    Oh, an Arya spin off too :D

    I've enjoyed it, as a bit of mindless entertainment.

    The War of the Five Kings was excellent. Everything outside of that was various shades of crap really. Game of Thrones was at its best when it was dealing with Westerosi power politics, and at its worst when dealing with high-fantasy elements.

    I was going to rewatch the series, but after this ‘bittersweet’ ending I am not interested in that or the prequels. Seems pointless.
