If they've something in mind they think they can accomplish with this storyline, I'd wonder what it is. The country has embraced realistic approaches to the topic of "American slavery," so I'd think the writers best be ready for the defensive if they make accusations if it flops. If they make the Confederates stereotypes, they'll cause conflict because that shouldn't be done. If they make the Confederates shades of grey, they'll cause conflict because there's too big a segment of population that doesn't want to hear that reality. If it's only point is to call out hypocrisies of the Union, that's going to have a small audience. I'd imagine they already have half the country predicting another "white guys bad" show.

And mostly, all these topics have been discussed ad nauseam, what are they going to find new?

Seems like a lose-lose idea to me but maybe they'll surprise.
Confederate States of America was about the US if the South won.

Sounds a lot more fun that what these guys are proposing but doesn't seem the same take to me. Not to the point of "plagiarism." If it is, I'm sure the lawsuits will be sooner rather than later.

Not really. It was completely out of left field. No build up and completely forced.

Supposed to be by surprise for the characters. Taking the audience by surprise with a major battle is just stupid.

Thought it was good other than the wasted ten minutes of Grey Worm and Missandei, though HBO had to find a way to fill the boob quota and I've certainly seen worse

That entire subplot is dumb. I'm not sure how you can feel any attraction with no genitals.

I'm just glad we didn't get Brandon Stark and the HR Pufnstuf talking tree. All in all, a pretty average episode in a pretty average season. It should pick up pretty quickly now.

Great episode and I liked BOTH the first 50 minutes of exposition and the last 10 minutes of mayhem. Not to mention that a couple of my least favorite characters got terminated.

As an aside I think they're doing an excellent job of setting up the political machinations going on in response to Dany's invasion. They're also doing a nice job of setting things up for the grand finale.

BTW, huge hint in the opening credits on how the White Walkers will get south of the wall. I'm not sure I want to point it out bc I think it's definitive proof which debunks a major theory.

She's untrustworthy. All she really cares about is taking down Cersei.

Thinking Jon Snow and the North should probably be showing a tad more gratitude to Littlefinger

Should give him a castle and be done with it. He's creepy with his Sansa obsession.

Taco MacArthur has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I'm not caught up, I'm not too invested into the show, and I understand it's just TV. But how has Littlefinger not been stomped on like the cockroach he is?

Littlefinger is a snake and is partly responsible for the Stark family's downfall. I'm ready for him to be killed off

True. JS knows he didn't ride in to save him, but none the less, Littlefinger is why he's alive.

I have not seen a single episode of this show. Is it as good as everyone says it is and worth watching? With 3 children, I'm not sure when I'll find time given the violence and nudity I've heard about.

But she does play those cards face-up. Anyone not listening, is not listening.
