As all Game of Thrones fans out there know, we’ll have to wait another year before we finally get to see season 8. So in the meantime I decided to re-watch the other 7 seasons and do my long overdue review on the last one!
Winter is coming and it’s getting closer. Daenerys finally made it to Westeros, so we get to see who she teams up with. Meanwhile Cersei has taken control over Kingslanding and crowned herself Queen. In the North, John still knows nothing but has a hard time fending off the White Walkers and the Night King…
Ever since the show surpassed the books written by George R. R. Martin, I noticed a slight deterioration.
Those of you who read the novels know that many of the conversation were featured almost word by word in the show. Martin took (and still takes) a long time to come up with this intricate world and made sure everything is close to perfect. However, the show runners didn’t seem to tell the story as detailed and definitely weren’t taking as much time.
Of course I understand, that they can’t spend several years coming up with a script for the next season, but you can tell that things were rushed. Not only is stuff happening at a quicker pace but it also seems to make less sense. By now I feel like by the end of season 8 a huge plothole will open up, devour all of Westeros and that’s it. End of story.
Everybody’s trying their hardest but there just is an unmistakable drop in quality. Nevertheless, I am super excited to find out what kind of surprises season 8 will bring!
Season 7 is just not as good as the stuff before, but given where the show started out, even with this drop in quality is absolutely fascinating and intriguing. Can’t wait for season 8!
