Supposedly, after the battle of Winterfell Dany only lost half of her forces? Where were they hiding? The last shots before the NK fell would have us believe that everyone is pretty much dead. The whole castle appeared completely overrun with a few main characters holding on for what seemed to be their final moments. The only explanation for this is that all her forces weren't at Winterfell, which also makes very little sense, especially seeing as Dragonstone appeared abandoned.
Then this episode... what happened with her fleet? Ignoring the comedy of those ballistas punching through ships like it's Pirates of the Caribbean, ignoring the fact the nobody considered that they might run into that enemy fleet that already wrecked their shit on 2 separate occasions, ignoring the fact that a fleet was able to conceal itself from bird's-eye-view until it was in effective firing range - Ignoring all that, how does Dany even have an army left? Her fleet was crushed, did everyone survive that and conveniently wash ashore on Dragonstone except Missandei? And how did Dany get from Dragonstone to the walls of King's Landing without a single boat? Did she carry her entire entourage by Dragonback? Even if they somehow got extra boats, why wouldn't Euron just sink them before they get to the mainland? What's happening with Dragonstone anyway, it's a vital strategic location, why does everyone seem to just abandon it? Why wouldn't Cersei seize it?
This has turned into a 2-location show. Everything in between and besides has no consequence or purpose and is lucky to receive a throw-away line to vaguely address it. There is no sense of scale, time or distance. Just a series of jarringly disjointed scenes. Bronn at Winterfell is a perfect illustration of all of this. He needs to be there, so he's there, who cares that he's practically a general in the enemy army? Dany needs to be outside the walls of King's Landing, so she's there, who cares how?
All that said, one thing I'm glad of is that they're running with some serious in-fighting within the former coalition of the living. This makes sense at the very least and I'll be interested to see how they conclude it.
And god damn, why is Jon such a dickhead to Ghost?
lol, I had thought of some of these things, but I forgave them, in the spirit of the show, but you are Right, there is just too many glitches in these last episodes.
Seems you spotted them all, and I am not even glad you did
