It make sense though, because the fans are just that, actually fans.  The show runners are just in a business.

The show runners are supposedly professionals and this their only job. They said that they chose Arya to kill the NK because no one would see that coming. Like, I can't even...

Well, I think it is pretty likely that one could look around and find a nearly endless number of people who just aren't very good at their jobs...

But really, the issue is more that these guys are "jobbers" and what we really wanted, for the most part, was some sort of art.  It's sort of like we went to a super-upscale restaurant, looking for some new, interesting, and exciting cuisine, but what we got was a McDonald's hamburger that they took the wrapper off and stuck some literal bells and whistles inside of.

I love the "literal" bells and whistles, H.

Great analogies, H. I'm hoping that the supposed "true" leaks turn out to be false. Otherwise, I'll burst into flames.

Well, I guess I've been fortunate enough to have not seen any "leaks" but I have been at the point of not being able to care much less for the last two seasons or so, which means whatever it will be doesn't really make much difference to me personally.

I didn't know there were leaks - don't bring them up here, please, I want to remain ignorant.

I liked Arya taking him out - but I would've had her be Bran and at the final moment of the Dark Lord about to kill him, his face changes to Arya and she takes him out that way. I think that would've been bad-ass ... like no one knows where she is at times and people are asking and looking for her and then the face thing, love that assassin-like "skill". I thought a season or so ago, that's how Cercei will be taken out - Cercei wins the war for the throne, but it's not really Cercei, it's Arya.
May your death be soon, slow and painful

Yeah, I don't think the fact of her killing him is really much of an issue, but the fact that she just literally pops out like dues ex machina is kind of dumb, especially when there were literally seasons explaining how she could literally steal faces, so that she would not have to just pop up in places.

If it were me, the battle would certainly have been conducted in a way that at least somewhat conforms to logical sense.  And of course, have the Night King's plot line actually make sense as well.  If he could keep raising every dead body, why engage?  All of a sudden, Death Itself is in a hurry?  Just grind them down...

man the night after the long night was longer than the long night and far more boring.

Also Dany turning up with 80 folk outside kingslanding isn't that intimidating.
