    10 books

    I believe they are running through two books a season. So I would say 5 seasons tops at this point.

    I thought it highlighted the emotional side of women pretty well.

    Hell hath no fury...if only Jon could get down with his Aunt. I thought a lot of it was stupid and easy to predict. No one got to kill Cersei and that was a bummer. I mean, Danerys did indirectly, but it was unsatisfying. Did anyone catch Varys trying to poison her (Dany) at the beginning with his little bird from the kitchen?

    thoroughly enjoying the last season. Read until half the 3rd book so they left me long ago. I'm imagining Arya , with the same dramatic music and super focus / slow mo in episode 3, appearing link a ninja and slicing Daenery's throat.
    ...don't tell me

    The action is great. I just don't like how some of the characters are playing out. I also don't think that Daenerys is the 'Mad Queen'. Did she unnecessarily kill innocents in the last episode? Yes, but when you look at her state of mind (Jorah and Missandei are both killed, the man that she loves will not return her affections, and she does not trust her remaining advisors, Tyrion and Varys) and that she feels no one in Westeros will love her, so the only way she can hold power is through fear. She said it herself, she chooses fear and revenge.

    Once all is said and done and she gets her rage out, I believe the people would eventually come to love her when they find out she's not a tyrant. But I don't think it will ever get to that point. I believe either Jon or Arya will kill her. There are no happy ending in game of thrones.

    One plot line that I thought they would pursue is that she's pregnant with Jon's child. They still might, just to add that bit of drama to the story. Knowing how Jon feels about bastards, I wonder if it would change his mind about being with her because he is in love with her but because he resists because she's his aunt.

    This season is shit. Whoever decided to rewrite characters in this way is trash.

    I’ll type more after next week, but just look at the videos from the actors themselves. Even they hate it.

    I thought it couldn’t get worse after botching the final battle with the night king. Boy was I fucking wrong.

    Arya will kill Dany and Jon will ascend the iron throne. That’s all that matters

    More shit writing. Why would Arya kill Danny? So a non-factor for 7 seasons is now the Main Character???

    Has SJW written all over it.

    Her character had so much potential.

    In any case, John has to be the one to kill her based on everything thus far.

    Otherwise the dragon will go ape shit.
