It’s just a show but it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t apply critical thinking and see if the writing was done well. Game of throne signature poster That’s my only gripe. I don’t care much about whether it was Arya or Jon or the lighting. That’s what analyzing literature is all about.

I’m not comparing Tolkien to Martin. I’m comparing Jackson’s LotR to GoT the TV adaptation by HBO, and I’m really honestly only judging by fun and accessibility to be honest. If we are picking apart convenient plot weakness then I agree. There were a hundred times it felt in that episode in which many main characters by rights should not have survived, or that their circumstances were tweet for dramatic purposes over realism. Game of throne signature poster For sure. Especially for Jon and some of the Scooby gang out on the front lines. But I’ve watched LotR a hundred times and I still love it, but I never had that much fun during the giant battle sequences. Just my humble opinion, however.
Take it now or Regret later
I agree. But that doesnt change the fact the main characters miraculously survived, even though Pod and Sam can barely fight and jaime is missing his good hand. It cheapened the episode, and because it was such a pivotal moment in the series it cheapened the entire story. There are three more episodes left in this entire thing. Only 4 more hours of runtime. Were this many people really looking forward to those final hours having barely any character drama because almost everyone is dead? How it is now, theres still so much possibility for things to change through character interaction. If a bunch of characters died it would just be “big evil Cersei army” vs. “tiny good Jon army” and they would obviously somehow miraculously win despite having no one around to actually help them. That sounds incredibly boring.
