Subj: Season 8, episode 3 (BIG SPOILERS)

The episode was very riveting but the action was a little too one-note. I would have preferred to see more rise and fall, back and forth in the course of the battle, not one side basically dominating all the way through, especially given Jon and Dany weeding out with the dragons what should have been at least half of the army of the dead. I imagined the Night King would send in his lieutenants and the main characters would get to face off against some of them with some characters dying and some winning. And when they won, large numbers of the dead would collapse with them, only the Night King would raise all the freshly killed (which he did do here as well, but he was already winning so it wasn't as meaningful). Sending the Dothraki out into the dark just seemed stupid.

GoT is famous for killing off characters in surprise twists, but the surprise twist here was that there were few deaths. I think there were only 6 name character deaths: Beric, Dolorous Edd, Jorah, Lyanna, Melisandre, Theon (and possibly Ghost), and 4 of those were pretty much a given.

Arya must now be the most badass warrior in Westeros. I mean she just saved the world! Beric's purpose being to save Arya was a nice touch. Of course right then, I knew what her destiny was.
