I have to rant...just a bit:
You know the magic is gone when, as you watch and try to figure out what's going to happen, you preface every thought with "they're going to".
--they're going to have Tyrion confront Daeny.
--Are they really going to have Jon kill her in the throne room?
--Maybe they'll have Arya take her face.
--they're not going to have Drogon kill Jon.
it used to be:
--I wonder how Tyrion will react.
--Who's going to rule?
--Where's Drogon going?
This season was the most inconsistent character portrayals I've ever seen...except maybe long running soap operas, where bad guys become good guys over time and whatnot. No, wait, that takes time, this went zero to one hundred real quick. It was weird seeing this new Daeny--it felt so out of place. Also, one second Bran doesn't care about, or want anything--he just lives in the past--the next thing you know, he's making the long trek to KL to be crowned--yup, that's consistent. Hey remember, the lone wolf dies but the pack survives?...all that stuff about family sticking together? PEACE OUT, WE GOING OUR SEPARATE WAYS YO! Wait, now they made it so Bran needs help finding a dragon? Seriously? He can just let his eyes go milky...this makes no sense!
I can't remember what they did with the Dothraki, and don't care--I remember Grey Worm and the Unsullied are supposed to be going to Naarth...you know what, that all just ended--it was like there wasn't any thought put into it...I could almost hear someone in the background saying "Yeah let's wrap this part up with them leaving--no no, it doesn't have to make sense, just get them on the ships. Aaaaand ACTION!" They leave..."Aaaand that's a wrap! Has anyone seen my coffee? Oh...well this time just erase it digitally."
It's late--I could probably go on, but I will say this, at least they didn't kill off Tyrion. I wouldn't have been mad if they did--it would have made sense after all--but he was one of my favorite characters, so there's that I guess.
