    Yep. GRRM beta testing his ending and will probably change his plan now that he’s seeing angry viewer reactions.

    GRRM doesn’t have to worry. He will never finish the books but now can sit back and criticize what the shows writers did to his story.

    Whining nerds on Twitter who are pissed that they didn't get the ending they had manufactured in their minds prior to the airing isn't exactly an overwhelming opinion, just a loud minority.

    I mean you can look back on real human history and see savage murderous armies that looted and raped and committed atrocities, it's our "modern" view that's shocked. Dragons aside, plenty of historical leaders wouldn't be shocked by this. I mean really, Jon never saw an army go bloodlust? I guess he did miss the trashing of the riverlands.

    That's one of the most interesting parts of Clash of Kings and Storm of Swords. The fighting in the riverlands shows that nobody is "good" when it comes to war. There's only people with power and those without it. Of course the soldiers started raping and looting, because that's exactly what the series has shown us that they do.

    It's only shocking because there was little precedent for Dany and her army doing anything like that. The character development to reach that point has been poor and totally unearned. They went from a 4 to a 10 on the brutality scale with little story development. Its rushed and lazy story telling plain and simple.

    So who kills Dany? Jon or Arya?

    Arya was spared several times for a reason. Does Dany have green eyes?

    I think Jon does it with Arya backing him up - fighting off unsullied, etc. Maybe he does it to save Tyrion’s life - I assume she will charge him with treason?

    I don't disagree on the Dany part, but the soldiers on the ground I'd totally buy doing as they did.

    I think what made this episode so gripping is how we saw through Arya and Jon's eyes the reality of what war is.

    I give props to them for not giving us the face to face confrontation of sides, but if anything feel somewhat cheated by Cersei getting to go out comforted in the arms of her love, but that is how GOT rolls and what makes it so good.

    Cersei collapsing and whimpering that she didn’t want to die was a bridge too far for me. Just didn’t seem something she’d do.

    Just didn’t see this episode coming, and now I don’t even care about next week

    I'm sad Tyrion is so stupid now. He used to be one of my favorite characters
