    Did you really just link to an article with no picture of the water bottle?

    Illinois DE Bobby Roundtree had spinal surgery after a swimming incident. Sounds like he dove into too shallow water or something like that. He's a class act kid, really, really hope he's ok. Those injuries can be scary for his life much less football.

    Chernobyl has been solid so far as well. His Dark Materials looked amazing.

    Yea some parts were frustrating, but whatever I wanted to enjoy it and did to an extent. Can't believe it's over, super excited to some day, in the far far future, read the books and the deeper detail in the story. This was and is a huge part of my life, there were highs and lows but it's been a journey I would do again and may still do all over again. Probably going to take a break from the series until the book comes out.

    Ah Dubrovnik, beautiful city. They haven't filmed at that "King's Landing" for a few seasons now fyi, not excusing it but they've changed location a lot.

    Don't stop him now, he's on a roll. But in all seriousness Chili, if you're going to start questioning so much you should probably just watch the show and see why people got so into it. Picking apart a battle scene is just silly at this point, even with actual faults their fighting scenes are not what made this one of the most popular shows ever.

    I watched on HBO Now and with my plasma tv I had no issues.

    I thought Quentyn was a super underrated character, nothing really special about him except a kid trying to do his family right. I loved that angle, I thought he was way more relatable then a lot of characters and found that to be refreshing in this series.

    There were some absolutely captivating moments. Nitpicking on some things: Why send your cavalry in like they did? Seemed like a waste. Was hoping to see Arya use her special weapon more. Clearly this is leading to a war with Cersei, but what army is left? The Unsullied and Dothraki are pretty much wiped out, so you've got remnants of the Northern army left. Seems like they are undermanned (of course they still have dragons).

    I just can't believe that part of the show is over, just didn't think it would be resolved at that point.

    Also, I hate what they have done with Dany this season. They so quickly pushed her from lovable hero to power hungry/a bit mad Targaryean. Just seems forced to make up for the quickness of the season.

    Arya seemed like a huge setup to kill off, just got that vibe. I would say Lyanna Mormont is for sure going to die, so much setup there. The rest I agree with for the most part. And that's crazy to think about, what show has killed off a dozen named characters in 1 episode? And it could be even worse! It would make sense why this is all coming to an end so quickly episode wise, what else are they going to film if they're all dead?
