HOTD: A House of the Dragon Podcast – 803 – The Long Night

After further review, we feel like Game of Thrones’ epic episode, “The Long Night” was structurally sound, but mechanically weak. Dark, muddy, with ambiguous action, we thought the setup and anticipation was strong, and we’re not even upset about the way in ended, but there is so much head scratching about how we got there,  and how utterly passive most of the heroes (and even head villain) was throughout most of the episode. Obvious the fandom is quite torn over the immediate aftermath of “The Long Night”, and only time will tell whether Thrones can deliver a holistic end that will leave the majority feeling satisfied, but there is quite a bit more work to be done on that front than we’d have expected after last week’s excellent setup. We’ll be back Friday to talk about the episode from a Lore/Book standpoint, and of course we’ll be back this Sunday to see how our heroes fair after surviving the Night. See you then!
