arya killing the night king was the right thing - how she actually did it - dropping the knife and using her other hand was amazing - but bran and theon in the woods, etc was pretty lame

aryastan though
Wouldn't mind seeing a series about her travels after she took off.

OMG so bad. I get and love the whole fake out thing when it comes to deaths on the show - that stuff was great.

But as predictable as it was and had to be, Jon had to kill the Night King. Jon not killing the Night King but instead peeing himself in corners of the castle while dragons yelled at him was not the payoff I was hoping for.

Meanwhile, 4 foot 2 stabby mcstabs comes out of nowhere to take down a millennia old invincible goblin with one thrust on her first try. All that amazing training she barely got really paid off!
Or you missed the point where Jon was actually a man, not a God.

It gives me hope that they have source material for the new show. No idea who the writers are but GRRM should have learned from the debacle of the final 2 seasons to not let something like that happen again. Completely sewered what should have been the one of best show of all time
id rather he just finish the books

Yeah, I kind of don't "get" the Arya arc. In 3 yrs she goes from being almost Sansa level useless to an unstoppable assassin.

That's some training program they've got.

They had a great storyline start with Syrio training her in season one and the obvious tie to Jaqen H'ghar and completely botched it at the end when she just upped and left Braavos

do not forget that time isnt real in GoT
remember all the transporting of littlefinger?

Arya clearly had decades of training in those 3 years :p

Arya's story arc like pretty much all of them fell apart in the end
- Arya basically learned a shit ton of ways to kills people - from Syrio dancing to poisoning to changing faces - but like everything season 7 and 8 they just rushed the shit out of it
- how much better would it have been for Arya to slowly plot to take out Frey - but noooo they needed shock value of her randomly killing them all

criminal how the fucked it all up in the end for a bunch of main characters

of course Dany (as boring as he story was) was botched in the end - have her be of the people - then perhaps show her jealous of jon being a targ (note the big reveal of him being a targ did not matter at all) - as she starts going mad and leading to her killing people - but NOPE had to speed it up

Jon as I mentioned - him being a targ should have been a bigger deal - and also they made a big deal of how when you are brought back to life you lose something - yet nothing seemed to change for him

jaime - probably the biggest piss off imo - you rebuild him and then quickly undo it all - again - take the time to explain how cersei has this control over him or something

other random thoughts
- stannis quickly going from love of his daughter - to ahhh fuck it lets burn her - seemed quick at the time but that was just the setup for how quick characters would change in the last season
- did greyscale ever matter?
- tyrion went from smart to stupid real quick
- i did not hate bran as the king - jon or dany would have been boring imo - but some random meeting to decide this - weird
- night king - biggest bad ass that has been feared for thousands of years - could not even take winterfel - a place that theon took easily :p

the good
sansa was the best arc imo - spoiled brat that had to put up with all the shit - and ended up queen in the north

At this point, I'm convinced that's never happening.

I think the best we'll get is that some version of The Winds of Winter might get released before (or after) he croaks. But zero chance that 73 year-old obese man manages to finish another book on top of it in whatever time he has left. Not when he's spent just shy of 10 years writing the latest book, when he started writing the first book in the early 90's, and when he's already quite wealthy off what he's already written.

And with the way plot threads and new characters were being introduced into the story at an exponential rate even in the last book, he probably wouldn't be able to wrap up his story in only two more books anyway.

I could actually buy Arya as a stealth assassin. That much she probably had believable training for since she's got the disguise thing down pat.

But an outright unstoppable killer in open field battle, hand to hand combat against a ghost who takes down dragons? Fuck off with that.

Theon is way tougher than Night King. He had his dick cut off and still kept going.

Night King without his weiner? Please, basically the Light King at that point. A soft breeze could take him down.

Oh, and one of the most criminal things of all - the Night King was a fucking nobody!

All that speculation of him being a Targ and related to Jon and maybe even Jon himself somehow - all for nothing! Just a shmoe that got captured by a bunch of magical shrimps.

You know a show fucked up when all the speculation abound, and even the most predictable ending, was way better than what they actually did.
