They can't though because GRRM hasn't written it. It's clear that D&D do not have the kind of talent it takes to write GoT.  I won't argue about visuals. They gave everything anyone could have hoped for with the creature effects alone. The problem is the writing. Episode 6 was drivel.  I used to fanwank that we were in a parallel universe. Unfortunately, the inhabitants of that universe lost 50 IQ points to a person.

 

Do I blame D&D? A little. HBO said it would produce as many seasons as they would write, so I think they should have used more of George's elements and made more seasons, so he could catch up. They also could have bigger delays between seasons.  I suspect they were hot to make that Civil War drama they are going to doing instead. Good luck with that guys really.  :ph34r:  At the same time expecting anyone to finish this as well as GRRM is unrealistic. He obviously gave them the plot points, but they are struggling to find clever ways to get there. Just as he is struggling to bring his series to a close. I figure it will take him 10 more years.

 

Episode 6 was terrible Linda of Linda and Elio who is associated with George called them arrogant idiots and tore the episode completely apart. She's not wrong. That caper to bring back a white walker was nonsense, utter nonsense.  They obliviously wrote backward from the plot point of needing an ice dragon to be created. Why for the love of God not have John go up there to save Bran? If Bran really had to get to Winterfell first make it for BenJen. Anything, but the fool's errand of bringing a white walker to Cersi. So, unforgivably stupid.

 

This show has been a phenomenal hit, so I figure HBO will reboot it the second GRRM finishes. D&D left so many elements out that it could be a completely different show in better hands and with final seasons that make sense. 

well thats not true. Just bc GRMM hasnt written it, doesnt mean they cant kill off people. Its disappointing how everything is shaping up for a happy ending. Nothing "bad" really happened this season

 

As much as I enjoyed Littlefinger finally getting his, it would have ben a better twist had he realized his back was against the wall, killed Sansa and then framed Arya for it. Her arc next season could have been proving her innocence and getting her final revenge on him.

Sure, they could kill people. My point is the clever nature of the first seasons is gone and I don't believe its coming back.

Kit Harington plans to shut down filming on Season 8 for a day so the cast and crew can attend his wedding to GOT's own Rose Leslie (Ygritte).

Stannis Baratheon was apparently confused and didn't know what he was doing.

The writing for Stannis was awful and very confused, and as was often the case with D&D, they struggled to hide their disdain for the character. It's a shame Stephen Dillane blames himself because he did the very best he could have done.

 

The Dragonstone group could have been so much stronger and more compelling than they were, much more than overexposed show ponies like Tyrion and Arya. The shocking writing for them in season 5 is one of the reasons I quit.

Kate Dickie (Lysa Arryn) has a bit part as a First Order officer in The Last Jedi, following GOT's Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Jojen Reed) who had an identical cameo in The Force Awakens. Gwendoline Christie of course returns as Captain Phasma. Meanwhile, Emilia Clarke is co-starring in next year's Han Solo prequel.

I binge watched season two of THE CROWN during the last couple days, and in one of the episodes to my surprise, up pops Gemma Whelan (Yara Greyjoy) as a secretary/confidant to a Lord Altrincham.

I must have forgotten - I'm sure it's been mentioned here, but I just saw it again today - apparently Jerome Flynn (Bronn) and Lena Headey had a tumultuous past relationship IRL and refuse to share scenes. Allegedly it's more Flynn who refuses to do so. Wild!

Now, that's some interesting Westeros tea!
