    I keep fucking saying this: These events aren't necessarily chronologically correct. Stop assuming that Event A happens immediately after Event B. And to Robert's point, did you really want a random fucking scene of Arya sitting on a ship doing nothing to advance the plot waiting to get to Westeros? Do you want a "3 weeks later" subtitle? The showrunners at GoT figure we're smart enough to realize that time has passed from one event to another, why don't we act like it?

    I'm just saying it feels odd when watching it, 's all.

    Finale felt like a big montage sequence and I mean that in the best way possible.

    Also, the new instrumental, "Light of the Seven" from Ramin Djawadi <3

    I think it's so jarring to most people because there's been more back-and-forth traveling the past two seasons than there's been in the past.

    Consider the first two episodes of season one. Robert sends word that he's on his way to the North. The next episode, the king and his traveling party arrive in Winterfell. Cersei remarks that they've been traveling for a month. The next episode, they're back in King's Landing. No one complained about the travel then.

    But in the most recent seasons, characters are traveling back and forth and it's jarring because it's not immediately obvious that they've been traveling, but there are loads of subtle hints and clues in the episodes themselves that give it away, such as Sansa making Jon a new cloak or the Martel and Tyrell banners flying in Dany's fleet. It's very obvious time has passed, but the writers aren't going to bore you with the inbetween. They know their viewers are smart enough to understand that time has passed, so they don't address it unless it's absolutely necessary to address it. But everyone's been complaining about it, and it's absurd.

    The only horrible, and unforgivable things this season were 1. That shitty Dorne scene in the premiere. and 2. Arya not dying from her stab wounds. There is just no way that some actor can remedy that kind of injury, even if she stitched up her boyfriends a bit after regretting throwing a fit.

    Oh, and no enough white walkers. I mean, this isn't exclusive to the show but come on! So much politics when the real enemy is drawing near. Westeros is gonna get REKT.

    What an incredible finale to an otherwise anti-climactic and mildly underwhelming season. That was amazing.

    long live the King In The North.

    I'm really late at catching up with this show, but as of the finale, we can assume now that season 7 will be mostly what will show up in Winds of Winter right? (unless they'll jump straight to Dream of Spring already)

    I don't know if anyone else posted this or not (for some reason the videos on the new forums are bogging down my browser so it takes forever to do anything) but season seven has been postponed until the summer (rather than the spring) so they can shoot proper winter scenes. So that's something.

    Yeah, I think I did post that a while ago. Maybe just in the shoutbox though. :lol:

    Just finished the first 5 episodes of season 6 (not gonna look at any other posts in this thread to avoid spoilers). Anyway, the one thing I just don't like so far is how in "The Door," they revealed the origin of the white walkers. They're so scary, mysterious, and intimidating because they're like a force of nature. Once you take that away, it just isn't the same. In my mind, it's just the same as showing the origin of The Joker, or having midichlorians explain the force. Even so, I wouldn't mind it so much if the scene wasn't so short and throwaway.

    Really, you mentioned the episode and nothing other of it? :cry:

    Otherwise, i agree with you. Was a bit, ehhhh.

    The children here are the "force of nature" to me; them having created the Walkers makes sense. It is a sort of yin and yang, an ancient tragedy which encapsulates the eternal coexistence of good and evil.
