I will post the spoilers if you promise to film yourself reading them and then put it on youtube lol.
I couldn't care less about the spoilers at this point because the writers clearly don't give a **** about the brilliant show they started to make, let alone all of the book lore, story, character motivations and world building they've left for dead for no good reason. They are writing the show as if reading from a series of spoiler cliff notes, and **** happens just because it might look cool on screen. There is no logic, reason, cause and effect... just stuff happening in order to move on to the next set of stuff happening.
Wanna know why, according to the showrunners themselves, Dany got ambushed by Euron? Because she "forgot about" the Iron Fleet. Yep! That is a verbatim quote. The fleet that has **** her **** up multiple times, and was mentioned not 10 minutes prior in the war council meeting... she "forgot about" them. LOL
I honestly can't believe someone of your astute nature is lapping this **** up. It it awful, and the vast majority of anyone but complete casual viewers agree with me. r/asoiaf is a bloodbath, and even the usually very show friendly r/gameofthrones has finally caught a whiff of the **** they've been peddled recently. Plot point spoilers don't matter when the road to get there is nonsensical or puerile. It shouldn't be about "oooh this happened", it should be about why, how, and what it means for the world around them. At this point I'd believe any spoiler point because the writers provide little to no justification for what happens on screen, it just happens, deal with it.
My reaction would be as posted above - this show can't piss me off any more than it has by now*, I'm already dead.
*Not true, I'm sure I will get mega pissed at the remaining two episodes. But it's my own fault at this point. I should have expected even less than my rock bottom expectations coming into this season.
This whole video is a brilliant summary of episode 3, but the last 10 minutes really cuts to the core of the overriding issues that have made this season an unforgivable ****.
