The fifth episode of season 8 is utter crap. D&D have lost every chance at redemption. There is no way out of the mess they led themselves into. The show finale is going to be an epic fail.
They could do everything with the show. Just don’t make it boring!
Even the battle was boring. Had they blown their budget and only had money for aerial views?
They invoked this stupid trope twice in one episode, and I’m not even talking about plot armor that characters lose and gain for no reason.
And what about the final shot? Was I watching Tarkovsky by chance?
