Since it has become a common knowledge that White Walkers can be destroyed by either fire, dragonglass or Valyrian steel, Gendry should have armed himself with any of those like his companions (Jon - Valyrian steel sword; Jorah - dragonglass dagger; Beric and Thoros - flaming swords). Instead he is armed with a warhammer, which is useless against White Walkers. See more »


Arya Stark: [referring to their father] Now he's dead. Killed by the Lannisters. With your help.
Sansa Stark: What?
[Arya shows Sansa the letter she found in Littlefinger's room - the one Sansa sent Robb long ago]

GoT larping Suicide Squad
22 August 2017 | by nightwing-929-775201See all my reviews

The GoT Suicide Squad reenact the Suicide Squad movie. No Story, no Brain, no sense. But a lot of CGI.

This Episode was so extremely disappointing, because it is the antithesis of it's own core essence. Instead of a gritty, grounded and deep Story about, loyalty, bravery and human nature, this Episode sold it's Soul for a shallow CGI fest, where everything is force bend to create fake tension and cool One-Liners. Everyone (except Tormund) is out of character and yoloing their way through this Episode.

If Game of Thrones jumped the shark, this is the Episode it happened.
