    Bran: "I don't really want anymore"... 2 episodes later: "Why do you think I came all this way?". XD

                    I feel so sad for you. Even with the plot having taken a noisedive, in each new episode review you'd tried to make as best a prediction as you could. And D&D just kept hammering you down. I've yet to watch your ep5 and 6 overviews, yet I expect you to be destroyed at the end of it all. I mean you no offence, it's just ... such a fascinating experience, it makes me remember watching s8 again, makes me want to laugh and cry at the same time.

                          10:25 is why it made it REALLY hard to sympathize with Kings Landing, even with the bad writing.
                          I had no remorse for people that hate someone but refuse to rise up against him/her and worse of all, mourn their loss.

                            You explain the death of her dragon so perfect there was no emotion for me in season 8 and the season befpre had more meaning even tho way less happened its all backwards.

                                    Why give Bron Highgarden? The Twins would make more sense. There's almost nothing to manage and lots of money to make from tolls. All he'd really have to do is protect the small folk and guarentee food movement and he'd be beloved. Marry one of Walder's hotter daughters to secure his position and he'd be set. I'm sure everyone would like him more than the Freys.

                                      So Sam got Gilly pregnant while he was at Oldtown, right? So while he still considered himself a brother of the Night's Watch and before the wall is destroyed and the Night's Watch dies? Sansa's not the only oath breaker revealed in this episode.

                                            Wait, people were already predicting that Bran would be king and Jon would become a Night’s Watchman again... before season 8? I thought those were the most ridiculous things to come out of this season. But now I’m thinking maybe the writers didn’t screw up quite as much as I thought...

                                              I just don't see why Jaime could've have just killed a dragon when he charged Dany in the last season. His character doesn't do anything afterwards, and we wouldn't have to have seen such a stupid reason to kill off another dragon.

                                                                                  Rant about Tyrion talking to Cersei: she's on the wall, he's not, yet he talks. TALKS. In fact, he almost whispers. Do you see how far they are apart? Can you imagine the wind on top of that wall? You'd need to shout if you want any chance at all of being heard, but no. He talked as if she was five feet away and in the same room. And when they cut to Cersei it is just as loud as it is two feet from Tyrion's face, but then with a magical echo, despite them not being in an enclosed space. That really bothered me.

All theories of course until then, but they all came together

                                                                                        To be fair, I think that was one of the nicest looking shots in season 8.

Of course some people who alrdy knew the end were using the Odds to make some easy money. It kinda spoiled my "Bran reaveal". Still love your work AltShiftX. Specialy that BloodRaven and Prince that was promise Video.
