    • she missed bran... and how there are the cut scenes where bran was warging into Nymeria. They foreshadowed the "Super Pack" of direwolves back in season 7. When Bran left he was meant to bring in the pack by warging into Nymeria, picking up aria and thats how she jumped over a wall into the garden right onto the Night King. Also there was meant to be a battle between Jon and NK that would have halted access to the garden, they could have made every hit NK took from Jon kill an amount of walkers making the Plot Armor a lot weaker in the battle. It would have been epic but they said it would have cost too much for Nymeria, and said nobody would care about the 1v1 (wtf?!) despite spending 200 Million on all the other non sense this season...

  • This is by far the definitive break down of the nonsense that ended as Game of Groans. Lindsay you have an incredible eye for detail, and on so many levels. It's my weakness and not yours that I'm only seeing these two videos now. It's taken me this long to be able to face what really happened in what should have finished as one of the greatest shows off all time. You've covered it all with not just the common sense that Tyrion ran out of. Your pinpoint accuracy on understanding writing, for the better and worst, made the length of the two videos time will spent. You've given me the funeral I needed for G.O.T. It may now rest in peace, and may they not create any spin offs, because I'll not trust them. Thank you for your work, wit and wisdom ❤️

  • "I just don't trust her for some undefined reason" is whistleblower for "I just don't trust her because she's a woman". And no, Varys, the best person for the job is _not_ someone who doesn't want the job. Have you ever seen someone work who hates their job? There's a reason companies don't, as a matter of policy, make their offices smell like rancid fart and make everything have a slightly sticky texture.

  • The "it's all about stories, and who has the best story?" also rings incredibly hollow, because GoT (and ASoIaF) won acclaim right from the beginning exactly because IT REGULARLY SUBVERTS WHAT WAS EXPECTED OF A FANTASY STORY. It's actually all about how neat stories don't play out when they involve real (or "realistic") people. That is GRR Martin's thesis, and so Tyrion's speech contradicts the entire basis of the show.

  • I liked it when danearys burnt kings landing. I thought it was the most logical thing to do after beeing betrayed numerous times. I wanted her to break the wheel, although I knew this wouldn't happen. In the book there is a prophecy about this guy who has to kill his love to get the magic sword, which he uses to kill the night king with...that should have been her death. a sacrificial death to save the weak from true evil. Even after the burning of the city she kept my sympathie. In my eyes all the other characters are treacherous cunts.

I talked with friends/co-worker about how awful she was in the last 3 seasons and was labelled as a misogynist for it, even after I explained why mainly a) last 3 seasons Sansa is totally different than first 3-4 seasons Sansa and b) book Sansa is much better (I know, book snob, whatev). And the same people after Dany did her 180 were like, "see see! She is a genius!" while they totally discounted the writing/plot/pace. I cannot wait to send this to them so I can have you put it into words and explain much much more fluently than I could. I salute you.

    • @Dominic Bounds Yes and no, but there claim to the throne was a lot stronger and legitimate than Cersei. She really had no right, being Robert's consort, also the fact that queens of kings on the iron throne never take there husband family name nor inherite from them!

      Michael SomjenMichael Somjen5 gün önce
    • @Michael Somjen No objections from me on that front - like everything else in season 4 onwards, the idea is full of holes and reads like something frrom a different story. However, Stephen's argument was that Jon has no right to the throne because the Targaryens were overthrown.

      Dominic BoundsDominic Bounds5 gün önce
    • @Dominic Bounds True but Jon's right to the throne is sketchy at best. There is no real evidence he is Rhaegar and Lyanna son, so Tarly and Brandon saying they read it in a Septon diary and saw it through the wirewood tree in the past, is not enough.

      Michael SomjenMichael Somjen5 gün önce
    • The line of succession never really ended: Robert Baratheon had Targaryen blood on his mother's side of the family, and the Baratheons are believed to have been descended from one of Aegon's bastard brothers. That was how Robert was able to square his takeover with the hardcore traditionalists. It's also why Robert left Tywin get away with the murder of the Targaryen children: like Tywin, he knew his rule would never have been stable if they lived. Nobody gave a shit about Viserys because he was in Essos, where true-blue supporters of the dragonspawn are rare at best.

  • This is the first review of GoT where the author actually did her homework (quoting previous seasons, books and even the producers). I commend You for this (very) long commentary and I agree 100% with what You told here, especially with Daenerys' sudden switch to the Mad-Queen mode. I truly don't understand how people could say "it was foreshadowed for a very long time". Like, srsly, wtf. Also the double standards really troubled me when I watched the last seasons and I'm happy someone else noticed that too. Arya murdering the entire house for the crimes of one man and then feeding those (probably innocent) people to him is suddenly ok because "he was a bad man". But Dany punishing actual enemies of war (AFTER GIVING THEM A CHANCE TO SURRENDER) is suddenly an irredeemable trait which leads to her "hitlerism" ....

    Maciej GodziszMaciej Godzisz15 gün önce
    • Well, the two sons she fed to him were responsible for the death of Talisa and Catelyn, respectively - you can't tell because Lothar was recast and the Freys are so visually nondescript that they're virtually indistinguishable anyway, one of the many logical problems of the show's notoriously bland colour palette. But other than that, yeah; I kept asking myself "how exactly does Arya know who was and wasn't responsible for the Red Wedding, and how does she know that there weren't any women involved with the crime?" Come to think of it, where did Arya get enough poison to be effective on all the Frey men at once? Putting aside all the usual difficulties of poisoning several people at once and getting them to drop dead simultaneously, the only poisons that can do this are meant to be *ludicrously* expensive, so where did Arya get them from. And if anyone says she was just "allowed" to take them home with all those useless faces, then it's time we acknowledged that Sansa wasn't the spoiled daughter of the family after all.

I mean, it wasn't as if they were known for threatening to rip people's faces off and wear them back in season 1

  • I’m 4+ months behind as I’ve only just watched season 8. I would have loved it if Lindsay had included a section for the Direwolves. They were similar to dragons in that they were rare and mythical and at the beginning seemed on a trajectory along with the Starks for something big. But along the way they just kept getting knocked off pretty easily one by one. The last one loses an ear in battle and Jon just gives him to a Wildling.

  • Westeros welcoming Dany with open arms would have actually made sense, Dany could have later turned into the mad queen as a result of her qualities as a ruler, i.e., she sucked at it, and the North's separatism, for example. She did have some authoritarian tendencies a la my-way-or-the-highway and could be quite reckless at times, which could have been played well in the mad queen narrative. The potential was there just around the corner. Of course such a story would have required at least one more season, which D&D refused to do. And there was also no reason for D&D to finish the show, if they got bored or tired with it they should have found someone else to take over. There are plenty of smart people in Hollywood who could have continued with GOT without D&D.

After he came back to life he and all the other fan favourites gain some serious plot armour so the show loses the punch of the first three seasons which made it so great in the first place. Now John is put in super dangerous situations but he comes out totally fine. Plus he and our other heroes become kinda deified

  • I agree with most of this video, but there are some nitpicks that I just have to comment about (I hate being this way, I'm incredibly annoying at parties): - Jon is AN Aegon Targaryen, not THE Aegon Targaryen who everyone thought was murdered in the sack of King's Landing at the end of Robert's Rebellion. That fact that Jon's real name is Aegon might be the single most idiotic choice that the writers of this stupid show have ever made and I will be SHOCKED if GRRM reveals it to be the case in the books. - Ned WAS Jon's father in every important sense: He raised him, taught him, made him the person he is. Rhaegar is just the selfish prick who provided the DNA. - Dany DID make one mistake in that if she had agreed to resting the army for a little while before heading south she, herself, might not have been so tired so maybe she wouldn't have FORGOTTEN ABOUT THE IRON FLE-OH-MY-GOD-I-HATE-THIS-STUPID-SHOW!!!!!!!!

  • I agree that Sansa was written ridiculously with completely unwarranted dislike and mistrust of Daenerys, but I see a lot of people saying she should be grateful because Daenerys didn't have to come and defend Winterfell, so she's obviously a selfless and just ruler. However, I don't really understand why people think Daenerys even had a choice in the matter. She had been north of The Wall in season 7 and seen the army of the dead and the Night King, she KNEW that they were coming and that they add the slain to their army. If Daenerys DOESN'T go north and help defend Winterfell then the White Walkers run rough-shod over The North and their army grows stronger by roughly a MILLION people (some children, yes, but they're still tireless, durable murder-zombies). They then continue south and Daenerys has to fight them eventually anyway. It was very much in her best interests to help fight the army of the dead as far north and as early as possible.

    LoganBluthLoganBluth19 gün önce
  • I mean, Aegon's Conquest wasn't the LAST time Targaryens brought dragons to The North, that was when Prince Jacaerys visited Winterfell during the Dance of the Dragons to gain Cregan Stark's support during the civil war. Although that time it was entirely peaceful and courteous as well. Maybe they're talking about when King Jaehaerys and Queen Alysanne visited The North and used the implied threat of their dragons to "convince" (**cough**FORCE**cough**) Lord Alaric Stark to donate The New Gift to The Night's Watch...? I mean, I guess in that case you could say the Targaryens used their dragons to screw over the Starks because they lost a huge section of land which the Night's Watch were then completely unable to maintain so it went to ruin and has been barren and useless ever since. And in The North, what with winter being so very deadly, any land going unused is going to be a massive sore-spot for Northerners. So maybe that's why they would dislike Targaryens and their dragons...? After all, as Wyman Manderly taught the Freys with his delicious pies: The North Remembers.

  • This all boils down to three things. 1.) Not including fAegon in the show. The narrative structure simply fell apart because of this. 2.) Making Tyrion a sympathetic moral compass when he's obviously going in a downward spiral to moral ambiguity in the books. This is largely because everybody loves Peter Dinklage so they can't make people hate him ever. 3.) D&D's inability to write grey characters. They can only be black and white, apparently. So Tyrion = moral compass, Jon = saint, and Dany = Hitler. No in between.

  • I imagine Dænerys' character arc followed that GRRM outlined. +Lindsay Ellis is wrong that Dænerys' idealism prevented her from snapping or becoming totalitarian. We have historic examples from before Robespierre to now where idealism bore some of the worst tyrants in history. It's not that awful Niemeyer poem (awful considering what he did *besides* writing this poem) "1st she killed the slavers, then....." Dænerys burned the slavers. Then she let revenge on the terrible act of crucified children lead her into punishing *collectively*; for her, it no longer mattered who had voted to crucify the children, but she punished a *class* indiscriminately. This was made abundantly clear when the son of one of the crucified asked her for the body of his father - right after she compensated a goat herder. As you might have guessed, IRL Naziism did *not* follow Niemeyer's poem, and it was *not* that Germans suddenly awoke to a genocide right in front of their eyes. The rise of Naziism is a topic in history whole libraries have been written about. Aktion T4 was cancelled because of public outrage. Himmler himself enforced a draconic policy that those who did know what happened were too afraid to tell. (Cf Poznan speech) Dænerys' descent into totalitarianism was set up well in the first few seasons, the payoff was too rushed and for bad reasons. About the "younger sibling": Ever considered she saw what's-his-name the boy-toy who indicted her in the Great Sept as this "younger sibling" and did the most drastic thing she could to avert this part of the prophecy, perhaps even hoping breaking it at this point would save Tommen? That prophecies can be averted in GRRM's works was made clear by the witch sacrificing herself to avert the "stallion who mounts the world" prophecy - from her perspective and the prophecy being known, she literally felt to have killed Hitler in the womb. I think we all agree that the execution was *really* bad. I see, however, good reason to believe that they followed GRRM's outline more than you give them credit for. It has been made clear that in the books, Tyrion often sees what he wants, not what is (Shea). That he doesn't succeed in pacifying Mereen doesn't mean his plans were bad, just that something like that can lead to trying to chose the least evil - look at Afghanistán or Iraq or even the Kosovo (that only has peace because it has been thoroughly ethnically cleansed). In #ASoIaF, EVERY protagonist eventually hits rock bottom. Should it be a story with purely male protagonists because Dænerys as a woman WILL turn temporarily into Robespierre or Sallust? Tyrion IS the most likable character, and goes onto a murder spree. Every character has a breaking point. That's the reason why everywhere, there is a system of checks and balances in place. There *is* no philosopher-dictator who hands out free solutions, male or female. I can see Sansa's being suspicious. Dragons are Westeros' nuclear weapons. In ASoIaF, alliances switched regularly, but not as often as in IRL 100-yeared war. So yes, not trusting the "saviour" *that* much is realistic and, in fact, led to the UK or above all France's nuclear weapons programme.

  • To DND's credit, it was a hard task to finish the remaining four seasons of the show without the original material as it was. I genuinely don't think that a story this huge and broad can be finished in 8 seasons (after 4 relatively slower paced seasons, too), and the time cramp made them (have to) forget a billion details from previous seasons. So i think that imo the show would always have to end unsatisfyingly. They did a shit job though, so much could have been improved, it seems like the script was written by a 13 year old. Like its so unfocused, forgets major plotpoints, and is trying to be multiple thingns at once (while failing all of them).

  • Very late to realising this but if Jaime HAD killed the Night King then that would be such a cool book ends for his character development, that it started in Season 1 with him trying to kill Bran, and ending in Season 8 when he protects Bran from the Night King, and by extension, saves the world.
