Was the only one that hated the resolution of Littlefinger storyline? It felt cheap and stupid, straight out of a brazilian soap opera.

When the twist happened...both me and my wife facepalmed at the same time.

I saw it coming, but it was great. He spends six series manipulating only to find out that the stark sisters together are more than he can deal with. The perfect comeuppance that's been so long overdue

Apparently there was a scene filmed when the Stark gals go to visit Bran such that the gals were beefing but then Bran clues them in. Fuck knows why it was cut because it really did needed the subplot tying together properly.

I disagree. I think it works much better if you have to imply that they have done that, or else you get to the exact same conclusion without the fun twist, and you get a boring scene with Bran doing a shitload of exposition.

Once again, "apparently" it was just the girls walking into his room together (or similar) rather than a scene where he sits them down and spells it out which wouldn't be in keeping with show anyway.

But does that add anything, really? Isn't the other way more fun?

There's no way you keep that exposition and also have the cool moment where Sansa says "how do you plead... Lord Baelish?" And I liked that moment. I was OK not to have the exposition, it seemed obvious enough to me that Baelish had gambled and lost that he could divide the sisters.

:DD .

This show is still so massively entertaining but it's nowhere near the quality of the first four seasons. Episode 6 of this season was the ultimate nadir of the show. And for some reason i stop giving a crap about daenarys. And she and Jon have no chemistry whatsoever. I'm in team Cercei now.

Disagree. S7 was fanservice in a show that desperately needed some fanservice

The Sansa/Arya conflict runs across some 3 episodes. There's no exposition needed, you just need one scene to link the conflict to the reveal. Had the episode opened with Sansa, say, opening her bedroom door and Bran is in there fingering her knife (or whatever) would be enough for the viewer to be able to look back after all the action in the dragonpit has adequately distracted them and go "aww right. Bran had a pow wow with her AND the Stark girl were actually beefing".

There's so many people disappointed with the littlefinger reveal that it was obvious the conflict and resolution was poorly done. We all enjoyed him getting his comeuppance, but how we got there was not finessed with the same policitial wibbling as earlier Thrones seasons.

There are many people delighted at the brexit vote. Other people's opinions are no barometer

It contains major spoilers about the death of a much loved character in an upcoming season, so be warned.

You can easily opt out using the mailing preference service. ;)

Seriously though, I don’t like doing it. Last week I had to deliver 3,000 Wetherspoon Brexit propaganda pamphlets. It’s definitely one of the worst aspects of the job.

How does that work in practice? Do you get a list of everyone on your route to avoid spamming?

You can if you like, but would be weird. The Post Office is nothing to do with Royal Mail, and hasn’t been for a long time.

Sorry, I mean I've seen them all up to date.. I was just thinking about the new season when it starts.

NowTV could be an idea. I've only got a Fire Stick at the moment. I'll have to see if I can get it through that.
