We deserve these moments. Anyone annoyed that it's too slow is probably failing to realize we have four short 1:20 movies to wrap up the rest(or over 5 hours). Also you need to realize they chose to have 6 episodes to finish the series. It's not like they had to cut a full season down to 6 episodes and so have to leave a bunch out or try hard to make it all fit. Game of Thrones has always been a character study as much as a spectacle. We'd feel robbed if everyone started dying without these moments.

This episode is quintessential pre-battle storytelling though. We'll just have to see how many foreshadowed deaths are red-herrings and how many are real.

Jesus there's so many good characters to kill off. I've never seen a show or movie or book have something similar to this, where so many characters are beloved and also probably doomed.

We've masterfully been led to care about every single character that's left, even ones we formerly despised.  WTH

There's literally no one left I won't get upset if they die, to varying degrees of course.  Like Tyrion I will scream.  Theon?  Eh.  Oh and that one pirate dude riding Cersei's coat tails?  He can go.

I hope he goes in some really stupid fun way that we can crow at when it happens.

It's too epic.  They both die with their hands around each other's throat, unwilling to let go even though it would save their lives.

Started a game of thrones death pool at work. Given how NSFW the show is I can already tell this was a terrible idea but people seem to be having fun.

To all y’all thinking Sansa is going to get the throne: you’re cute don’t ever change <3

GRRM's favorite character is Sansa. So, it's not a bad pick imo.
And then I sat there going "really? that was it? that's so stupid."

I still think the best closure you get in Armageddon is just moving on to the next character.

Here is my prediction for this coming episode:

1. White walker army attacks winter fell while....
2. The Night King attacks Kong’s landing and gets another army
Armageddon is best when it's actually harsh and brutal, not when we're only pretending that it is.

I just want to sit some of these fellows down and have a gentle chat about the best use of light cavalry. I was looking at the battle formation in the opening just shaking my head, trying to negate it.
Do you kill your sparring partners once they are useless to you, so that you are king?

Holy Shit....That was the most exhausting thing I have ever watched...Not in a bad way either.
My thoughts without giving away spoilers:

1. Arya: Change hands ep es. Seriously.
2. Lady Lyanna Mormont...Straight boss.
3. Fucking Sam

Armageddon is best when it's actually harsh and brutal, not when we're only pretending that it is.
