I’m going to be an outlier and say I think as the writers move away from the books, the series has become less interesting. It’s such a cliche for Jon and Dany to be together–unlike Tormund and Brienne who are a delight. Martin’s world is brutal and horrific but it never panders to the audience. A Jon/Dany pairing seems so… Disney.

I feel the same way about the miracle non-drownings of Jon and Jamie. Did you look at the furs Jon was wearing? The weight of those combined with hypothermia should have done him in. I’m a bit sad that as the show progresses it’s clearly being written to make audiences happy. I’m all for HEAs but I don’t think they’re true to Game of Thrones DNA.
