Game of Thrones season 8 episode 5: Everybody hurts
Casual Monday, here in Australia.
We just got through watching 19 minutes of Game of Thrones action.
Now, there were some highs, some lows, there were a lot of lows, well here they are.
Favorite moment from this one is her game ball.
I think that's a lot of years ahead of everything else happening in this episode, so.
Play game ball double death man.
Like [UNKNOWN] and the zombie dude was just like.
The moment before play game ball where good old Hound.
He had his little moment with Aria where he said you know don't be like me.
That kind of stuff.
And Aria gave him the earnest sandal.
That was super good.
When Drogon the dragon comes through and flames down.
Of course, why am I specifying that he's a dragon?
Of course he's a dragon if he's shooting fire out of his mouth.
And Drogon was just [SOUND].
I think the best part of that moment is when the head of the Golden Company is just standing there and he's like I thought I'd have a really big talking part in this show.
He runs away being like, call my agent!
That was my favorite part.
I feel like this is controversial.
Some people are really cut about her being the mad queen.
I'm kind of into it.
[BLEEP] [UNKNOWN] as a mad queen I think is a bit predictable.
I don't know it feels like suddenly she's got bags under her eyes.
Suddenly her hair is a bit crazy and messy and now she's hysterical.
You must pass the [UNKNOWN] in this episode is of the nearest she didn't even go at it but She was assassinated but the broadest
Denarius his stories have always kind of sucked.
So it's actually not that hard of a emotional late for me to go from like, Denarius to do there is
He so much the ministry time they started on catch with the dragon I was just like, honestly as Yeah, I don't know.
Evil Serce, evil dinares.
Maybe there's a nice parallel there, but it just seems a bit too simple for Game of Thrones.
And no one's going to sit on the throne.
The throne's actually irrelevant now, they're 100% going to burn it down.
Does it even matter at this point
Does the throne even exist?
I guess you could say John Snow.
If I could wave a magic wand, it would definitely be Sansa.
Yeah, I don't know how you [UNKNOWN] this bloody show.
[BEEP] **** Jon.
[BEEP] **** Jon's gonna sit on the throne.
It's honesty so bad now.
How did it get this bad?
I think Tanaris is gonna sit on the throne, but maybe everything around her will be totally wrecked and wasted,
And you'll realize that the authority and status of being a ruler is only as good as the ruled that you can rule over.
You can answer this point.
Put it down.
It's literally any man down.
She can bring it back.
Basically anything worth worrying about anymore.
There was no hot pie, and at this point I suspect there will be no hot pie.
Hot pie, could have made some real hot pies during this episode, [INAUDIBLE].
[INAUDIBLE] so it's probably better.
The whole pie wasn't new.
I just, I thought, you know, Aria's been building up to kill Cersei for eight seasons.
Also, I want more back story on the guy from the golden company.
He is the poor man's Jamie Lanister.
He has really nice hair, and he's kind of borderline hot.
He should have had more time.
Cersei was always gonna die in this episode.
She was the main villain from the first episode and she died like some chum, just falling down.
She died like a C character, she's an A character.
The rock, the wee tiny rock.
You got killed by a rock.
As it ended Jamie really didn't progress from literally the first episode.
Completely ruined his heart, he had one of the best hearts in the show he seemed like he a good guy when he wasn't in the Cersei distortion field and he just ran back to her for no reason what was the whole point?
Why did he do any of this.
So what was all that character development inbetween for?
I just do not understand like what is the message.
Not the rock, Now they're being killed they're all Boston and Smith and they're raising the eyebrow an actual rule not the euro.
But is really poignant that it wasn't with a bang.
It was just with a whimper that they found the last exit was blocked and they just died.
It was pretty great.
I think at first I didn't like it but it's growing on me.
I'll change my mind tomorrow.
I'm broken as a person.
I'm exhausted I'm done with a lot of stuff.
I don't know, I change my mind every ten minutes, don't you?
When I came out of it, I thought this sucked, and then, I thought, actually it was really cool, and I think I think it sucks again.
When you came out, when he came out, he allegedly because when you came out I thought you were excited.
You were loving the Journey episode.
We sat opposite each other.
At one point I looked over to Don and he was just like this and I started to get hyped and I was like how cool was that now.
There's no ending for Jamie that would have been satififying and there's no ending for Cersei.
There's a bunch of them like I could think of them but I actually quite liked that end bit, but the battle itself I was just you're watching her and it's on the wall and everyone is like, just could you not dragon our place.
Because, we built it, it's quite nice
I live here, my kids go to school in king's landing.
It's gonna be really hard to relocate That said I'm totally okay with Danaru being the Mad Queen.
A, she's been one of the suckier characters in the whole TV show.
What show are you watching?
B, every season her supple has been among the most boring, every season.
B, I want mainly want to tune in next week to see her die.
So I mean, I'm here for it.
You can leave.
Can anything happen next week that will satisfy even 50% of the fan base?
I don't think so.
I don't think so.
I think it's-
We're fractured monstrous fan base.
And I think it's going to be fractured and monstrous accordingly.
Fantastic, I can't wait for the discourse on to it.
