Dang. We are down to one episode. So far this season has been a total let down. I would say we have had one good episode out of five. Game of Thrones is batting .200 for Season 8 so far. Can they salvage the season and the series with a big outing next Sunday?
Thoughts on Episode Five:
*Stormin’ Mormon =SM, Tommy Nuggets = TN, Buzz = B
- So many questions honestly.
- They just phoned it in the last three episodes.
- Last week was such a great episode – this one left me feeling…weird.
- This was like a bad movie. A lot was going on for such a short time period, but I had to watch because I am so invested in the characters.
- Pretty cool scene with Varys getting killed by the dragon. I always thought he was a snake of a human. Maybe he had the right intentions all along?
- If Daenerys is going to do that with one dragon, why didn’t she just do that from the start? Why even bring your army down for that? Why didn’t she do that to the dead army?
- I feel like I knew Daenerys was going to turn mad, but it is still disappointing to see it happen.
- What an awesome and quick death for Qyburn.
- The Hound vs The Mountain was cool, but I also feel like they got a little too much attention for us being down to the final two episodes.
- I really wanted to see Cersei killed by Arya or a dragon. Kind of a lame death for her and Jaime. Or are they still alive?

- Tyrion is killed.
- Davos lives.
- The show ends with Sam writing something in a book.
- Sansa comes down to King’s Landing with an army to fight Daenerys and her army.
- Sansa gets the throne.
- Davos is Hand of the Queen.
- Arya is the protector or whatever it is called of the Queen.
- Bran wargs into something or is killed by some sort of magic.
