Show's gone to shit, this season was absolutely terrible (and not just because they deviated from the books loads).
Some of the deviations have been extremely annoying, it seems like they are trying too hard to shock people now so just kill people without anything happening to the good guys.
It's not even that, it's just simply bad writing.
>Jon lets the wildlings through the Wall
>a lot of the Watch (including the officers and leaders) plan to kill him only because of this, a period of time after it happens and they're already through the Wall
>Jon does nothing else apart from try to rescue more from Hardhome, DURING WHICH MANY OF THE WATCH SEE FIRST HAND HOW FUCKED THEY ARE AND WHY THEY NEED TO STOP GIVING BODIES TO THE OTHERS
>"lol let's do it tonight guys, oi annoying pointlessly added kid that isn't Satin, go tease the fanbase about Benjen and let's get this shit done"
I mean, what the flower? The wildlings are ALREADY presumably either camped outside Castle Black, hitting up Mole's Town or starting to settle into The Gift, pretty much their only ally in the Watch is Jon, Castle Black has
poor fortifications facing south and the Watch are probably outnumbered by them about 1:1,000.
I don't know what the flower they must be thinking with the things this season.
>let's kill Barristan, one of the finest swordsmen in the realm and still feared and respected by many younger competent swordsmen, fighting some random angry rebels with a load of Unsullied, who are also meant to be fearsome fighters
>let's set Stannis up to be dad of the year only to have him burn his daughter (both inacurrate to the character), then have it be for nothing anyway because LOL RAMSAY WINS WITH 20 GOOD MEN AND A MILLION CAVALRY THAT WE DIDN'T SEE A HINT OF DURING WINTERFELL SCENES
>Davos now has literally no motivation anymore other than his family (who have been barely mentioned)
>Cersei was just a mother who would do anything for her kids, she's totally a sympathetic character, look how hard she has it because of these evil religious guys
>btw in case you haven't gathered it yet, the religious guys are BAD, they kill poor innocent whores and carve shit into their face
>who are the Greyjoys?
>the whole fighting pit scene
>Varys supports useless shit Daenarys (someone who was to be wedded off for alliances) instead of Aegon (someone who was groomed his whole childhood for leading)
I could go on but it's not even worth it, it's just been disaster after disaster of writing decision.
