    Reuben Foster Will Not Be Suspended!!

    All that time hanging out in the Tampa Police Department working informants really paid off for ol' Bruce. Now if he can just put the DiSalvo murder to bed.

    I loved last night's episode. All I want from this show is these characters bouncing off each other all over the place, and I got a full hour of that. I hope the battle with the Night King is 15 minutes so I get 45 of them all dealing with the aftermath. I really like this show. I just don't care about the stuff all of you seem obsessed with. At not one point have I wanted to the Clegane Brothers have a duel to the death. I'm honestly not sure I should want to see that. But apparently it's really important. I honestly don't care who ends up on the Iron Throne. I said this years ago, if the show ends with ANYONE on the Iron Throne, I think it's a failure. It's pretty obvious that the political system in Westeros sucks. 75 hours and a gazillion dead peasants leads us to.....the continuation of this awful system? I mean, let's say Jon and Dany co-rule. They are going to have crazy incest babies who do awful **** when they are in charge in 20 years. Super. Glad this was all done so that inbred Targaryans can rule the world again. Here's what I find interesting. What does it say that every dynamic leader on the show currently is a woman. Cersei, Dany, Sansa, Arya, Brienne, Yara, and the Red Witch when she eventually returns are the characters making big decisions and taking bold action. Jon is simply following the code that Ned gave him, and it's stupid. There is no way any of those women decide to drop that bombshell ten minutes before the climatic battle for the survival of mankind. But Dum Dum Jon is like, "hey.....we need absolute trust in order to live. Let me completely undermine that right now." I think Little Sam is secretly a demon. Arya was 11 when he was born. Now she's a nympho assassin and he's 18 months. Little Sam's lack of aging drives me bonkers.

    I just loved announcing that the White Walkers will be there by morning and then immediately pivoting to "Is the big woman here?"

    Twitter was hysterical last night. The consensus was that Grey Worm should have announced that he has "two days until retirement."

    That would all be cool if Jon didn't suck. I apparently forgot the entirely of Season 4. It happens.

    Here's a question. Does anyone care who really ends up on the Iron Throne in the end? I get the sense that book readers may be more invested in that specific ending than show readers, but maybe I'm wrong. I never once watched this show to get to a big battle scene. I watched this show because I love the interactons between all these bizarre characters. I loved the Battle of the Blackwater episode not because stuff blew up real good. I loved it because of Tyrion and Bronn saying their goodbyes. Drunk Cersei talking all kinds of ****. The Hound saying, "**** this." Stannis simply not caring that half his fleet blew up. Joffrey being Joffrey. The show still gives us those moments but in smaller and smaller doses. I could have spent 15 minutes with Tyrion and Varys insulting each other's "handicaps" and then the two of them and Davos talking about marrying the young people to each other. I loved Arya and the Hound talking again too. That's the stuff I like. I don't like a ton of Jon scenes, but I tend to like Jon/Sam scenes, because they often become this little domestic sit-com of the cool jock taking the fat nerd under his wing. The fact that the entire Jon/Sam meeting was 10 minutes of exposition about how Jon is really Prince Albert the 7th and the rightful heir to the Iron Throne, but that he was still actually a Stark because his mother was a Stark and not his father. And that he is true-born because some dude tied a rope around his parents in secret....that was a waste. I know it's "important." But I don't care. More and more of the show is huge set pieces like the dragons entering the Neverending Story, Jon/Dany scenes, and the gay pirate doing gay pirate stuff. None of that really interests me. I know that there are probably 3 huge battle scenes to come in these next episodes and I dread that, because it's going to cut into Jamie and Brienne bickering. Poor Cersei literally has no one to go back and forth with now, which is such a waste. I hate the gay pirate, and I refuse to give a **** about Captain Antilles or whatever his name is from the Golden Red Shirts. I am not getting invested in a new character at this point. **** you, show. The main reason I don't care is because it's too much. This world is absurdly big, and no one was ever able to rule it, and everything is still going to suck no matter who wins "the game." Like, unless there's an epilogue where Cersei becomes queen and Sam immediately invents the lightbulb as a result of her investments into the Citadel, what do I care about who rules this world?

    The Night King sounds like an incredible soul show that ran from midnight to 6 on a Memphis AM station in the 60s.

    No. This show is now nothing but fan service. I'm getting a five minute hard-core sex scene from Brienne and (really?) Tormund or I am going to pee on GRRM's grave. Actually this whole show should just end with an orgy set to the Godspell soundtrack or something.

    Maybe the Prince that was Promised was inside of us all along. I'll be honest, I'm kind of dreading the zombie battles ahead of us. I've seen the battles on this show. I'm tired of battles. Can we just get to the part where Jamie kills Cersei and the big wilding finally does it with Tilda? And Ser Pounce? (I just want to see Ser Pounce. I don't necessarily want to see Ser Pounce in a threesome....unless it truly advances the story. Seriously, they should end this series with Ser Pounce in the old MTM logo from the 70s. I'm so glad GRRM died and can't complete the story. Because this ending is going to piss everyone off, and it's going to be awesome.

    I assume the "Wights can't swim" thing is going to be a thing right until the point all the water freezes.

    Here is where I nerd out for a second. Though I'm not as bad as you people. World War Z very specifically addressed the problem with waging a military campaign against a zombie army. A zombie army is not a normal army. You don't have to supply it. You don't have to feed it. And you cannot break its spirit. If you outflank a real army or break its line or cut off its supply chain, it will either retreat or surrender. A zombie army simply keeps fighting until every zombie is dead. In World War Z, the soldiers in the US Army psychologically broke in the face of this. You get the high ground, you inflict huge casualties, etc....and the army keeps coming. Anyway, the humans are clearly going to lose horribly until someone in the main cast - Jon, Bran, Arya, Dany, Jamie, etc - dies heroically while killing the King White Walker and then all the zombies fall down like the droids in the first Star Wars prequel. By the way, how often has that plot been used in recent years? Kill the Big Bad and all the little bads either die or go home. Independence Day 2 did this. I think the first Avengers film did.

    I said this last year. I think this show has a serious casting problem right now. The two most important characters are Jon and Khaleesi. And neither of these actors is up to the task. This show now feels like Godfather 1 and 2 if Leif Garrett were cast as Michael. Like I'm starting to dread any scene with either of them.

    Also, Poor Dumb Sansa is now the smartest person in the world? How did Arya come up with that one? No one wants to sit near Bran at lunch. The direction here is "Imagine if the greatest prophet of all time was also a school shooter."

    Things I totally forgot last night. 1. That Varys was in the show. It made me happy to see him. He amuses me. 2. That 9 year old Arya totally had the hots for Bobbi Gentry (Robert's ****). Now she's 18 (but looks 9) and apparently that's cool with Gentry. 3. That Arya was with the Hound when Tilda Swanton kicked his ass. I remember them being on a road trip but totally forgot how it ended. 4. Sansa and Tyrion being married. When they approached each other, I actually asked myself, "Have they ever met?" I did remember that Dany melted Sam's family. I was proud of myself for that. Character I am 100 percent sick of: The gay pirate. How did we reach the end game of this show and have this off the rack Jeffrey Dean Morgan in a pivotal role?

    Yes. It almost as if Cersei set him up with some impossible task as a huge test of loyalty. Almost as if she understood the essential elements of drama. What the **** is Last Hearth?
