I guess I’ve just never felt real world limitations so obviously bleed into a show, or at least so abruptly. I almost had a heart attack when a few episodes ago, they go from Dragonstone, to King’s Landing, back to Dragonstone, then to Eastwatch. That journey alone would take a whole season normally, and say what you will about whether that’s a good or bad thing, to go from taking that time, to not taking that time, is aggressively noticeable. It’s not cleverly masked or explained, it’s just odd.
I suppose it’s not entirely unique, I mean Jaime and Bronn in Dorne went unusually fast. Speaking of Dorne, I was thinking the other day what a fantastic let down the partnership between Dorne(or just Dorne in general),the Tyrells, and Dany really was. I mean they have this big reveal last season, then they’re both swept off the field in a few episodes. I know it was supposed to be intimidating because Cersei managed to do it so easily, but because there was zero time to build up their characters, it was like “so what” when they got stomped. I mean how contrived were those stakes ya know? As we’ve seen, Dany didn’t even need them. The lack of impact felt by that, was crowned by the totally weird powers of GoT official mini boss Euron Greyjoy, and his unstoppable fleet of teleporting war ships, raised from an island of stone.
I mean, the more I think about it, the more I retroactively ruin this show for myself. Why do I continue? I started out just wanting satisfying resolutions for the characters I enjoy. What the hell is happening to me!?
