by carbonfan » May 20, 2019 I totally agree wiht all of this. I wish the writers had taken more time to more fully develop the storylines this season... I would have loved 8 or 10 regular-length episodes rather than 6 episodes with a few marathon ones thrown in. And two of the episodes were basically just mass destruction with little dialogue and meager plot development. I could probably have handled last week's brutality more if they had taken time to build up to it, but I think what bothered me most was that Dany's violent streak was so abrupt and out of the blue. Tyrion did a great job of unpacking her patterns of behavior to Jon last night but we hadn't really had the opportunity to see that evolve fully in recent episodes.
