This week, they could have done something SUPER cool and shown Dany learned something from last week, and given the Dragon some armor.. make it a surprise, so you see the dragon flying around burninating things and then WHAM it gets hit, and you think that's that.. but SURPRISE, they installed some cool dragon armor on it and the ballista just bounces off and all the city army people know they're supremely fucked.
Yeah, I've read a couple of these and chuckled. Sounds like the spoilers are true, and the show will not be salvaged in the final episode.The memes for this are glorious though.
My biggest thought is this should have been two episodes. 1 would have ended with Jon ganking Dany and Drogon flying off. The 2nd would have been all the fallout and resolutions. It would have given both story lines a little more room to breathe.
In general I have been mostly fine with almost all the plot beats this season, they just really needed to have more episodes to make them feel earned and not rushed like they did, but it's all in the past now. At least now our watch has ended.
