    Jon Snow is not going to fortify the wall since the North is practically bankrupt. They should have open borders anyway since the wall, not allowing the free flow of movement and having borders is anti-liberty.

    The "White Walkers" are just coming here for a better life. Let them in to integrate into the Seven Kingdoms. Tear down the wall and disband the Nights Watch.

    If you do not believe this then you are a racist, Nazi and White Supremacist.

    So many plot holes for convenience. Lazy writing. The dragons are up in the air. As if they wouldn’t see the enemy fleet first. And those big arrows sure were long range, accurate and with massive power. I call BS. And tearing through ships like that? OK, physics must have been suspended.

    And Cersei would have killed Tyrion the minute he was in range. She has a hit out on him already. And they were all standing outside the wall clearly within range of those oh so powerful giant crossbows.

    A reviewer with many of the same complaints. The writing has gone to crap, and everything is rushed or illogical.

    https://www.forbes.com/sites/erikkai...starbucks-cup/

    Well, all Euron needs to destroy Dany's fleet and kill one of her dragons is a big crossbow, which he can fire at a moving target from a boat with perfect accuracy. Euron was able to build his vast fleet in a matter of weeks. He was then able to ambush Yara on her way to Dorne and defeat her handily.

    This apparently wasn't the teaching moment you'd think it would be for Daenerys and her forces, as apparently they have no scouts and Dany can't see anything below her while riding on a bloody dragon. Euron is once again perfectly placed for an ambush, kills Rhaegal with ease, and then proceeds to utterly destroy Dany's ships and also take Missandei prisoner (though we don't see how).
    ...
    Well, when Rhaegal is shot by the ballista, Dany makes a headlong charge at Euron's fleet, despite each ship having a ballista on its bow. (They're semi-automatic also and require no time to reload!) She veers off when they shoot at her and then . . . just disappears from the fight entirely.

    Okay.

    Why didn't she just fly around behind the ships and burn them all from the rear? Those ballista were aimed forward. They wouldn't have been able to shoot backward because of the masts and sails. The ships could have turned but not as fast as a dragon can fly. So why didn't Daenerys even attempt to protect her fleet and friends?

    Because the show said so. Because the writers and producers wanted the fleet destroyed and Missandei captured and to hell with actually having it make sense. We have come a long ways (in the wrong direction) from Martin's carefully constructed conflicts.

    The amount of damage the writers have done to this show over the last four weeks is worse than what the pansy Night King and White Walkers did in seven and a half seasons.

    I thought the point was to expose Daenerys as a coward and further indicate that J. Snow was meant to be king.

    Yeah, that may have been it. Watching it the first time through, it was “where did she go?” It was so strange, it seemed like terrible writing.

    Tyrian and Varys had a discussion afterwards and her disappearance from the battle never came up. Conspicuously missing. But they are making the case that she is unfit. I suppose this may be a discussion in a later episode. Still seems too rushed.

    Give Grey Worm some time to contemplate why his GF was captured while his queen ran away with her dragons tail between her legs.

    I suspect that Grey Worm might be more prone to blaming himself for insisting she take that escape dingy.

    They have jumped the shark. The writers are not worthy of the source material.

    Euron and Jamie happen to run into each other for a fight to the finish? Right. Danys and Greyworm become war criminal mass murderers? Sure. The deadly giant crossbows no longer work? Arya survives 10 buildings falling on her? (Why the constant, continual, slow collapse of all of the buildings?) Dragon fire now impacts like a bomb. Varys survives every monarch and court deception until he somehow gets exposed and killed for what? Zombie bodyguard turns on maker and master? Why tell him not to attack the Hound in the first place?

    They jumped over light speed and went straight to ludicrous speed.

    Of all the stuff you listed, Danys going tyrant bitch is the least offensive. She was always a crazy power hungry person, she just played the savior for power and selfish reasons.

    Seems that Grey Worm took it out on disarmed, surrendering soldiers. I don’t think I saw him killing women and children though.

    Yeah, she was always entitled to be the all powerful benevolent dictator. But burning up woman and children was out of (a well-developed) character.

    I don't have a problem with Dany becoming the mad queen. That's been hinted at in the books for a while now. She's her father's daughter and all that. But it's how it was done. She goes from someone willing to sacrifice her forces and possibly her dragons to defend the world of the living (that episode was a $#@!show, but still) to someone willing to massacre millions of innocents after she had already won. She's been brutal in the past, but it was always toward people who had done something against her. Slave masters, traitors, enemy houses, etc.

    This was the person who locked up her dragons for the better part of a season because one child got burned to death. If you want to turn that character in a genocidal maniac, that's fine, but it has to be properly foreshadowed so it can be arrived at slowly and thoroughly. She went from breaker of chains to mass murderer of civilians in two episodes FFS.

    Anti-vaxxers, responsible for a 30 percent uptick in totally preventable diseases in the world, have blood on their hands. They shouldn't be considered civilized members of society. If they refuse to listen to a century of scientific studies confirming time and time again that vaccination is an unquestionable good for humanity, then it's time for us to start treating anti-vaxxers as what they are: dangerous and worthy of shame and condemnation. If we can't convince anti-vaxxers to change their minds, we must attach enough social stigma to the delusion that agnostics cease to join them.

    For those that have watched all episodes: what's your overall take on the show? I stopped watching at the end of Season 2. I thought the seasons had too much filler/padding, and were too grim i.e. mostly all of the characters were losers or overly corrupt, message of the show was "Evil/corruption always wins, don't bother trying to better the world." Only characters I liked were Jon Snow, Arya, and Tyrion. I really liked Ned Stark too, but he was way too naive.
