I enjoyed it as it gave good closure. But again the condensed nature of it meant you jolted around a bit. During the battle it looked like a nice normal autumn afternoon. Next day Snow everywhere, ohh yeah they made a big deal Winter has come and it lasts years and years in this world. Few months after the shanking. Of its blazing hot sun again? What?
Also Tyrion convincing John to do the shanking, made no sense he walked right up behind her while she was doing her Nuremberg rally. He could have done it then if he felt it was so important. Why did he only think of it after? He expected to die for quitting as hand so he had nothing stopping him.
Would have been nice to know why there is a nights watch? What are they watching for now. Also might be handy to set it up near the big fuck off hole in the wall.
My wife liked Arya going off exploring I thought they may have wanted to set it up a bit more. I was hoping a kraken was going to smash her ship.
I was thinking there were 4 types of characters in the story
Pure Evil - Joffrey, Bolton, Cersi, Euron types
Evil but think they are good - Dany, Tywin, Sparrow dude
Good but flawed - Robb, Jamie, Jorah, Theon, Hound
Good - Everyone who lived till the end.
Surprising really you would think if they were subverting TV tropes more of the pure good guys would have died.
