Band of Brothers and GOT are 2x times better than any of those imo.  

Bro, did you just disrespect The Wire?

Just came across a post from somewhere that accurately predicted every major beat last episode before it came out, and predicts what happens in the finale. 

I should've stuck with my initial theory of what would happen lol bc it IS what will happen.  If that post holds true, I will be happy with the ending.  I can share if you all want.

I'm down.

So some "leaks" have come out that clarify the previous "leaks" for the final episode.
 

 


Jon, Tyrion, Davos and others survey the damage. Tyrion finds Jaime's hand and they confirm Cersei and Jaime died.

Grey Worm and his crew have some Lannister men surrounded. They start killing them, and Jon wants them to stop. Grey Worm confirms that it is Dany's command. Tyrion tries to convince Jon that he'll never be safe.

We get her "speech" scene. She talks about freeing the city, and wanting to free the world. At one point, we see her with Drogon behind her, wings spread, and it is shot in a way that makes her look like Dany has dragon wings. She calls Tyrion out as a traitor, to which he responds that she murdered thousands of innocent people. He throws his hand pin in disgust, and she orders him taken prisoner.

Jon again attempts to reason with Dany in the throne room, as she sits on the iron throne. She won't hear it, so he feigns agreement, gets close, and stabs her. Drogon gets a little enraged and melts the iron throne. Jon submits himself to Grey Worm and is also taken prisoner.

With Dany gone, Sansa is somewhat in charge. There is a council.

There is discussion about what is to be done with Tyrion and Jon. Sansa wants Jon freed immediately, and Grey Worm refuses. Tyrion comes before the council and suggests that the new Queen or King should decide Jon's fate. On the subject, Sam suggests they "elect" a new leader. Tyrion says that is a stupid idea, but they do anyways. Bran is chosen as leader.

Bran names Tyrion his hand (not sure if they actually have a trial for Tyrion now, it is looking less likely.) Tyrion informs Jon that his punishment is to have to go back to the Wall/North. Grey Worm accepts this fate, but does not bend the knee to Bran. The Unsullied leave Westeros, intent on carrying out Dany's wishes to free slaves/oppressed people all over the world.

Tyrion aids Bran in forming his new council. Davos is named Shipmaster. Bronn (YEAH!) is the new master of coin AND ruler of Highgarden. Sam is the new Grand Maester. Brienne is the new Lord Commander of the Kingsguard. Yara is Lord of the Iron Islands. Robyn Arryn is Lord of the Vale. Gendry is Lord of Storm's End. Yohn Royce is Lord of Runestone. Pod will basically be Bran's personal assistant (wheeling him around, defending him, etc.) Tyrion is still looking for masters of law and whispers.

Sam mentions Drogon has been sighted somewhere, and Bran says he'll "look into it."

Jon says goodbye to Sansa and Arya. Sansa's going home. Arya says that she's going to sail West, because that is where "no one" has ever been.

Closing montage of Arya on a ship, Jon reuniting with Tormund, Ghost, and some wildlings and heading north of the wall, and Sansa ruling at Winterfell.
 

 


To be fair, I don't think that sounds terrible. It is somewhat anticlimactic or whatever, but I could see how they do it justice. It does fit the descriptions of being somewhat "bittersweet."

Only one episode to go :(

Also, reading that kind of gives me hope that one of the spinoffs is of Arya's adventures post GoT.

As of right now when I think about what show this compares to the only thing that comes to mind is LOST.  Both were super popular, well written shows that just fell on their face at the end(though for very different reasons). If you enjoy the show for the spectacle of it all -  the big battles, big dragons, etc - then great.  But I fell in love with this show in season 1 which had absolutely none of that.  No matter what happens in the finale they have ruined the show.

Bronn's spoilers are the exact bullet points I found in the screenshot.  I posted it last night in the thread, but for some reason, I couldn't hide the image in the spoiler tags.

 

I'm mostly happy with that ending.  And through the first 3 or 4 episodes, my prediction was Jon was going to kill Dany and then I read a theory somewhere else that Jon's ultimate fate would be returning to the wall (although when I read that theory, they were predicting it to be with Dany alive and ruling).  So, I pieced my theory with that one and figured that much out...  E5 threw me off the trail a bit, and I started leaning more towards Arya killing Dany, but I like it being Jon better.  He is my favorite character, and he gets a final heroic, noble act before being sent back to the wall.  It's bittersweet that he can't stay and take leadership in the 7 kingdoms, but he never wanted it, so the next best thing I figured is reuniting with Tormund and Ghost, so that's cool. 

And then recently, another one of my friends threw out the idea that they would end up setting up a council instead of one ruler.  So, it's interesting to see it all come together.

Yeah, those spoilers pretty much takes GoT out of my personal Top 10 shows of all time. Just terrible. They could do all that in 15 min too. It's going to be one long, painful finale. Sort of like the tail end of Return of the King.

Where to start?  I was finally able to see this episode last night....was out of the country for a bit.

Not really sure where I am on it to be honest.

I thought that the killing of Jamie and Cersei just simply wasn't good enough, they both deserved more.

Euron's was OK, but just felt stupid I guess.

Didn't like that the Hound had to go out like that, would much prefer to see him back in the North protecting Sansa, who I assume will rule the North by herself.

Figured Jon would sit on the throne, and maybe have Gendry as his hand?  Maybe Arya?

If Arya makes it, and I hope she does, I really have no idea what is to come of her character.

All in all, liked it, but if you were a fan of how plodding the first 4/5 seasons were, this just feels way too fast.

I did like that Dany figured out how to actually use the dragons...not so much burn stuff, but how to fly them without making herself look so much like a sitting duck.

All in all, the wheel is broken, and I think it will end up being Jon's responsibility to try to piecemeal it all back together somehow.

Love the show, it's still the best TV show I have ever watched, but I do wish they had slowed things down a bit at the end.

To add, if we don't get the nitty gritty of Bran, I feel like a whole lot of this story was just noise to take your eyes away from a clash of Jon and Dany.

Couple things I was thinking about last night...I figured out immediately that the spider was indeed trying to poison Dany, and that there is at least 1 more Lannister out there floating around possibly.

Nahhh Tyrion is all that is left.

Don't think it's possible for Ser Brienne of Tarth to have a baby Lannister in that belly?

MAYBE but nah IDTS.

Of note. Today I learned that Grey Worm is actually a musician IRL.

Interesting.

I mean....seems like a pretty good possibility, especially for a spin off coming up.

We will have Starks (if they survive), a Baratheon, Targaryen (Jon or Dany), Tully, a new 3 eyed raven/NK, just seems like it's starting all over again with the baby of Jamie coming up the way that Dany did.

 

Who knows though, just looks like they are binge reading so they can finish the book and get onto the next one to me.

Between our discussions of All-Time great shows and the GoT finale coming in seventy-two hours, I figured this list would interest people.  This is one of my favorite TV lists of any kind personally, as basically all of my favorite finales are present.

Thoughts?
