I thought it was pretty awesome.  Battle of the Clegane bros was epic.  The only thing I have a problem with was Cerei's demise.

SPOILERS!!!!!!!!!!

BELOW















I didn't quite buy into Dany going full Mad Queen...but it was pretty amazing to see KL just get leveled.  I thought it was pretty cool how Drogon destroyed the Red Keep and thus killed Cersei.  I guess it is fitting that Jamie and Cersei died in each others arms, but I was still hoping Jaime could get back on track to his redemption.  Jaime pretty much came full circle and Dany ended up avenging her fathers death, even though she didn't know it at the time.  I guess there will be some pretty intense scenes with Jon coming up in the next episode.  I really wish they could have done this season in 2 seasons, but I guess the cash was running out.  I really do appreciate the high production value of the show.  However the current state of fans bellyaching and complaining is being relentlessly hyped.

I thought it was excellent. Dany had to be the Mad Queen. It was meant to be. It will be interesting to see how they get her off of the iron throne. Although I'm sure that she has no followers who like her after she torched half of them.

Yeah I really wish seasons 7 and 8 were 10 ep's, and that there were more seasons coming.

I'm very much enjoying this season, just doesn't feel like there's enough time to wrap everything up.

Pretty insane to see Dany unleash Drogon's power... like you said King's Landing has been the location of supreme strength in the realm for 8 seasons now and she leveled it in minutes.

The pacing is way off. As I understand it, HBO had nothing to do with the decision to cut it to 6 episodes this season, that was all D&D's call. And it was a mistake.

But even so, I think those 6 could've been put to better use. Unlike many, I can buy in to Dany going Mad Queen. Her family history is well-established, and they've been dropping hints about it since Season 1. But I think they could've taken a little more time this year to explore her descent into insanity. The first two episodes could've easily been combined into one- the Battle of Winterfell didn't need two weeks of lead-up. One of those eps could've been put to better use as an extra week between the two big battles. Dany had just lost Jorah (who, along with Barriston, had always been there to pull her back from the ledge in the past). She'd lost yet another one of her "children", and she had just watched her best friend get beheaded in front of her. She had just found out that Jon had the better claim, and Varys had betrayed her (I assume that he had already sent many ravens throughout the kingdom before he was executed last night). They should have taken an extra week to show how all of this affected her leading up to the big battle.

I agree with everything you are saying.... I'm enjoying it though.
