Finally got my parents to sit down with me so we could share some thoughts on one of our favorite shows, Game of Thrones, just before the very last episode airs!
I tried to keep the beginning part of each video relatively spoiler-free, then give you a warning before I delve into spoilers for the latest episodes, but seriously if you’ve spent any time on the internet this week you probably already know the most pertinent parts already!
I have a LOT I want to say about this show, so I split the talk up into multiple videos. This one is focused on the differences between S8E3 “The Long Night” (aka the battle against the wight walkers set in Winterfell) and “The Bells” (the standoff between Dany and Cersei at King’s Landing.) Was the battle against the Night(s) King too easy? Was Dany’s revenge against Cersei too severe?
This one is focused on the differences between the character arc of badass-assassin Arya Stark vs endlessly deus ex machina’d wonderboi Jon Snow: which one is the biggest “Mary Sue”?
This one is focused on the variety of different character types on the show, from the ruthless and beautiful Cersei to the ruthless and beautiful Melisandre to the ruthless and beautiful…Dany…er….
This one is focused on the different character arcs of Cersei Lannister vs Daenerys Stormborn Targaryen, two sides of the “ruthless dictator” coin.
