Two biggest things that interested me:

1.  Bran - they clearly meant to set something up with his comments to Tyrion about living mainly in the past.  He gonna do end up doing something big. 

2.  I still think the Snow/Tormund convo was important/foreshadowed something big as well. 

I think the rest plays out pretty obviously. Jamie’s speech wasn’t about going back to his love.  He is going back to kill her.  Dany gonna get the throne and we are watching her turn into the exact type person that keeps the game/cycle going.

Okay. I found out way too late yesterday (around 8:00) that both episodes 4 and 5 had leaked (I think in Thailand.) I decided to read the bullet points of E4 and just watch it live. I haven't looked up anything on E5, yet.

For whoever said there were 3 episodes left... There are only two. There's only 6 episodes in this season, unless the theory that there is/was a seventh episode that was filmed is correct, which I have my doubts about.

I don't think I really cared for last night's episode all that much. It is funny how polarizing this show can be on that front, with hyper critics like Dex feeling the opposite (no offense at all intended here, bud.)

rodeo is right. The editing seemed jarring to me, and a lot of things seemed rushed.

I liked a lot of things, but I didn't like a lot of things.

The good:
Dead dragon. One less deus ex machina device is better.
Oathsex (as it has come to be referred to.)
Sam/Jon's goodbye.
Tormund, as always.
Cersei's ruthlessness/Missandei's last word.
The scorpion attack on Dany's fleet. Some good film work there, albeit brief.
The building tension/madness from Dany/Sansa/da norf.
The Hound/Arya.
The Hound/Sansa. Great scene. I would actually love to see both Stark girls just retire to the hills with the Hound as their adoptive papa. lol
Dany turning heel. I feel it coming. I don't care for her character anyways.

The bad:
Ghost. Jon doesn't even give a poo about him, and neither do the writers. One of my biggest gripes in show vs. books.
Jaime leaving. I get why he did it, but Brienne was right. He isn't that hateful person he described. He should have just stayed.
The sudden jumps in scene changes.
"Don't tell anyone. Promise!" Proceed to tell a few people.
Bronn being so "mean." I get why he's tired of being promised all this stuff and wanting to bow out, but he has genuine connections to both those blonde bois. He could have gotten what he wanted without being painted as this unnecessarily violent cutthroat. In fact, even at the Battle of the Blackwater, they painted him the opposite in his interactions with the hound. He's just another character the showrunners no longer care about.

Obviously, this is still the GOAT show to me. I just hate we only have two more episodes to go. I even dreamed about the show last night, lol. I remember being sad that the show was done, and how they had handled some of the characters' endings, lol.

omg I just read the "leaks" for the last two episodes of the series...

I'm really torn on how I feel about some things. Every detail isn't spelled out, but the highlights are, and I don't know what to think. I think some people are going to love it, and some people are going to absolutely hate it.

I really hate to link them, lol. I'd rather just answer specific questions and/or provide an overview of the high points. But, I did google "Game of Thrones final episode leaks" and found a story that had a link to a compiled thread on /freefolk.

I'm still processing them myself. I don't know what bums me out more: some of the leaks or just knowing the show is over in two more episodes.

I tried to PM you @CRA but you can't receive messages.

There's a compilation thread of "Episodes 4-6 leaks" on /freefolk.

didn't you say the last leak concerning the Long Night battle ended up being completely bogus? 

you can PM me the answer or spoiler tag it.  Are the WWs done?

The Long Night episode leak recap was indeed 100% bogus, but the compilation I read this morning was from multiple reliable sources and only included in the compilation if the poster had had an accurate past.

Again, there were rumors of fake scenes being shot a long time ago, so even these might be bogus. But, I feel way more confident about these things than anything else in the past. Seems very very legit.

PM sent about WWs question.

Honestly not that happy about episode 4. I feel like for as long as they took to film the final season and write it, the plot and writing is sloppy. The CGI has been phenomenal and the show is as beautiful to look at as ever, but maybe they needed another year to write better plot. The amount of plot armor that the characters have had, especially in the last episode in the fight with the dead, has been incredibly frustrating and doesn't line up with the brutality of the earlier seasons.

1) The Night King pulls up his attack and doesn't just kill everyone. Definitely not in line with anything that he has done in the past. And that whole plot just conveniently comes to and end with one thrust of a dagger. Everything with the children of the forest, Bran, just poof. All that lead up so Arya can kill him. 

2) Euron pulls up his attack on Danerys as her army is in shambles on the beach. Euron, who has been so brutal before, just like the Night King, doesn't finish his attack. Let's just sail away boys, one dragon is enough!

3) Tyrion reveals that he knows Cersi is pregnant. I'm honestly not sure the writers know or will acknowledge that Cersi lied to Euron about that.

4) Jon Snow doesn't even say goodbye to Ghost? WTF was that? 

I hope the ending makes it all worth it but I feel like for such a great show they are conveniently taking a lot of liberties with the plot. Without Martin's books to lean on, the show has gone off the rails.

lol /freefolk is, rightfully so, absolutely pissed about Ghost.

I mean, he laid right there at dead Jon's feet at Castle Black. He kept watch.

Jon then just sends him North with Tormund without even a goodbye pet. WTF?!?!?!

The ONLY way they can save this is to give us a sequel series with Tormund and Ghost as the main characters. F everyone else. Maybe the big woman can show up and apologize for choosing the Kingslayer, and maybe Ghost will find a lifetime supply of giant bones to gnaw on.
