Yeah. It seems so rushed this season. I don't know why, of all the seasons, they decided to make this one shorter.
I agree, it seemed like TNK was going to be the big bad, but to have him show up and be defeated in one episode after YEARS OF BUILDUP seemed like a slight.
I guess they realized that Cersei is more interesting than a CGI bad guy that has no way to communicate his motivations? That I HATE ALL LIFE BECAUSE I'M COLD isn't super captivating? It's true, but after years of WINTER IS COMING I'm feeling a little let down.
Also, WTF WAS WITH THAT BATTLE?? NOBODY IN CHARGE THERE SHOULD EVER BE IN CHARGE OF ANYTHING EVER AGAIN. It almost makes me want Cersei to win because at least she'd be able to organize a kingdom. I lost all faith that anyone at Winterfell could organize a birthday party, much less a government.
Except Arya. She's my GIRL. #aryaforqueen
