    Ugh. When I think of what the producers did in the final 2 seasons of that show, I can't help but shudder.

    So, the first ever episode I've seen of this series was S8 E5, and then the last.
    No idea what was happening, but everyone seemed so angry.

    Did I miss much?

    It's obvious that Bran the Broken is a figurehead which is why he relented and took the crown.

    Having read the books makes TV Bran simultaneously disappointing and then easier to accept because book Bran can be projected onto him.

    Bran had clearly stated "I cannot see the future" earlier in the season...which made the writing even worse when he said, "why do you think I came all this way"
    they asked him if they were going to defeat the night king...he said, "I don't know"

    One thing that I still have a question about is Arya. She undertook all of this training to basically become No One, a ghost. But then she just plops back to her old self but with some better dagger skills. I imagined her character being one with the shadows, morphing into other bodies, etc. HEr character arc was a pretty big disappointment to me.

    She did that to the Freys, and it was awesome. I imagine that she did some of that to GET to the Night King, but wasn't shown (which was another bad call).


    AND I STILL WANT TO KNOW WHAT WAS THE POINT OF THE DAMN HORSE!!

    Agree. They needed to use her whole arc in the last season and they just whiffed.
