So, is he dead?

I'm sure some Deus Ex Machina will be along early in the next episode.

Personally, I'm not feeling any tension about the fate of the characters at all now.

Same here. I also found the battle rather dull - probably because it was too one-sided.

Pfft... we thought it was F*cking awesome. Dothraki hoard firing arrows stood on horse-back, Boadicea-a-like riding a winged napalm machine, flying blood and guts - what's not to like?

Yeah, ok, that was pretty good.

The battle was always going to be one sided given that Danaerys had air superiority. Once she'd blown a hole in the shield war the Dothraki could flood through. Of course she should have flamed the length of the line rather than pushing holes in it but that's another discussion

Well, he is certainly a tad moist.

For that matter, why did she even bring the Dothraki to the party? Seems a bit of a frivolous waste of lives.

The Dothraki are the GoT equivalant of the Inter City Firm or the Chelsea Headhunters. They love a bit of a rumble. They know, deep down in their guts, that some of them are going to get a serious dicking BUT, they still weigh in and mix it up anyway so, she couldn't have gone without them, even if she tried.

That last one was downright boring with all the 'ooh surprise surprise dragons just in the nick of time' stuff. But I never saw the last bit coming!

I did. This one was utterly predictable. There's only so far Dragon CGI and previous character investment can carry one through - and I'm flirting with that limit. Only one more to go though.

Please - don't make this end up like The Hobbit - where it only sits on the shelf for OCD completeness.

The moment it crashed, I went "Oh, now they got a dragon too!!".
Action set pieces are still good, but the rest is terrible. Tyrion, who used to be the highlight, is outright awful. Danys attempt at looking love-struck was gringe-worthy. I just want it to end now!!

Still, it could be worse. Stephen Donaldson managed to get to the end of his 10 Chronicles of Thomas Covenant.

Did he actually do anything?

If you think this has a happy ending, you haven't been paying attention.

It's not the despair... I can take the despair. It's the hope I can't stand.

I've just finished watching all of Series 1 now. Have also been lent 2 and 3 as well.
Certainly never seen cycling south of Sussex

The few episodes I have watched impressed me with how closely they followed the narrative in the books.
