I haven’t seen or read GoT, but could someone draw a rough analogy using Star Wars to describe what about the show seems to have gone wrong? No spoilers, so the analogy should be indirect. (I.e., not just swapping character names.)
This season of GOT, especially the last few episodes, is the last +/- 20 minutes of Revenge Of The Sith. Issues developed over 8 seasons dealt with in seconds, people acting out-of-character out of the blue as the show is out of time, instead of allowing character changes to happen organically. Hard to say more without spoilers.
