good people (except Bronn)

In the long run, I don't think Bronn was ever really that bad.  He did his best when everyone was treating his as a pawn.  Even the brothel thing at the end was likely more to wind up the uptights than anything.

And I just remembered, Brienne getting to finish Jaime's entry was perfection.

Bronn wanted everyone to think he’d do anything if paid enough.  Truth is he wasn’t so bad after all.  I’m kinda surprised he survived.  I also loved the idea of a small council show.  Bronn torments Sam, Brienne punches Bronn in the mouth, Davos says something dripping in sarcasm as Tyrian tries to finish a joke and keep order.

Also love Brienne as commander of the King’s Guard.

I always thought Sophie Turner was a pretty girl.  When did she become such a beautiful young woman?  That last shot of her at her coronation was stunning.  She looked regal.

After at least five years, I think HBO should think about following up on our cast.  Not a full season, maybe a five episode mini series or a few 2.5 hour movies.  Maybe concentrate on one Stark at a time except Jon.  Leave him a mystery.  Maybe even better would be a Tyrian centric movie or mini series where he has to solve a mystery before Westeros falls into chaos.

Loved how Sansa slapped down her uncle.

Yeah, I thought we were in for an epic duel between Jon and Grey Worm. 

Follow ups would be fun.  Sansa as Queen in the North.  Arya wherever sheís going.  King Bran.  A king with no ego or ambition and a small council filled with good people (except Bronn), might be a series of fun HBO movies.  At some point.  Leave Jonís fate a mystery.

Before the internet breaks, I’d like to go on record and say I’m just fine with this season including the finale.  I’m not even opposed to some follow up movies after a suitable period of time.  I kinda think that might be where they left us on purpose.

There were more survivors than I expected and a somewhat happier ending than I was prepared for.  The whole Bran deal was a nice touch.

100 million budget per season from HBO didn’t go very far with an army of the undead and lots of dragon action.  Plus the miniature of Kings Landing to torch.

Probably Jamie.

Yep. +1.

And itís all there.  Every bit of it.  From the point where Drogo killed her brother.  She didnít try to stop it or even shed a tear for him.  Itís why Cersei didnít go nuts and Jamie didnít kill her.  Thatís the finale.  I think.

100 mil goes pretty fast with a CGI undead army and aerial dragon warfare.  That may be why we got so much Arya escaping Kings Landing.

80 minutes to fill? 

Other observations:

Didn’t expect Cersei to go out like a bitch.  I thought she’d be screaming in defiant rage, not whimpering for her life.  I also thought she had something up her sleeve.  She was so smug and confident, I thought she may have had more Wildfire or something.

How the hell did Davos get this far?

I...uh...hmmm.

Why did she go from Breaker of Chains to Burner of innocents?

Well, throughout the entire show, her first instinct is almost always to punish those that piss her off.  Fire and Blood are the words of House Targaryen, and that's what she promised the city of Qarth for not letting her in the city, the "Great" Masters of the Slaver's Bay, etc.  He had to have people like Ser Jorah, Ser Barristan, and Tyrion to talk her down from extremes many times.

Very true.  Looking back at eight seasons, Dany almost always led it her absolute worst instinct.  She was different after the death of Drogo and their child.  And she changed again after she killed the rest of the horse lords.  Mel’s death and Jon’s rejection made her snap.  Now there’s nothing between her and Winterfell to exact her final revenge on one of the only people to challenge her, Sansa.  Don’t think Tyrion can talk her down either.

I didn’t see any of this coming.  And I called Heroes in Crisis five months ago.   Wink

Bronn is almost fresh out of Lannisters.   Grin

OK.  Not sure at all what's happening here, but there's some strange synchronicity going on.  May 29th is the release date for Doomsday Clock #10 and Heroes in Crisis #9.  It's the third anniversary of Rebirth and of Wally West's return to the DCU after his New 52 exile.  For those of you not tracking, Wally was one of the central figures in HiC.  He was also name checked in DC #9 in a conversation between Lois Lane and Lex Luthor.  Evidently, DC #10 is a big reveal in the story involving Wally, Dr. Manhattan, and the history of the DCU.  How HiC #9 plays into this I can only speculate.  Actually I can't because I've no idea. 

And I called HiC months ago.  The whole premise blew up on me when I was asked to believe Harley got the drop on Wally with her hammer.     
13  General Geekery - The Comics, Films and more that inspire the Toys we love! / The Geek Boy and Girl's Vale of Visual Amusement / Dark Horse and Netflix do a deal. on: May 09, 2019, 10:20:50 pm
https://www.cbr.com/netflix-dark-horse-first-look-deal/

Not sure why though.  Most of Dark Horse output is licensed, creator owned, or imported.  Dark Horse doesn't own too terribly much of what it publishes.   Huh?

I guess I didnít make the Jim Lee connection with this wave.  Iíd long since stopped buying X-Men at the point where Lee took over.  The Beast just gave me an Avengers flashback.
