Something has changed.  The Characters I'm rooting for are winning as of episode nine. At the end of episode seven I was actually cheering.
And I'm worse than Hitler.

Also I thought Ramsey's Banners looked kinda of self-hating British.  Were the writers commenting on the Brexited movement?

Ah Ramsay Bolton, there are few people more evil, even in real history.

Although I'm still not a big GOT fan, I found some of the events of this past season to be quite satisfying. Unfortunately I can't say them without spoiler tags so here we go.

I actually thought this season was a bit weaker.  The last episode was pretty good but over all, there weren't really a lot of surprises from a show known for actual surprises.  Part of the problem is most of the surviving cast has plot armor, meaning most of them are going to survive at least until the last few episodes to finish their arcs.  Hey, I don't need characters to die for no reason and there's much more to this show than shock value but much of the seasons arc feels a bit perfunctory.  Hopefully they can pull off the last season well, now that they have their pieces in place.

My one hope is that the

is taken care of early in the next season.  It's a pretty boring "good vs. evil" battle, which to me is almost antithetical to Game of Thrones' ethos that most of the cast is a lot more complicated than good or evil (you know, except certain dudes like Joffrey and Ramsey and Euron, who feels like the closest this show has ever gotten to having a straight up WWF villain in the series.  Good vs. evil is great for Lord of the Rings, but Game of Thrones best moments come from trying to navigate politics, strategy and the character's own values.  Its a world where good guys don't get rewarded for being good, or at least it was for much of the series.  I'd much rather see the characters try to deal with each other than the big bad.  It will be interesting to see what happens the day after the end of the world.

I don't know about everyone else but I really hope some very bad things are in store for Cersei. She's had her fun and now it's time for the queen you love to hate to kick the bucket. Considering all she's done (Especially with what happened to the sept), Justice is long overdue for her.

I actually really loved this season. It was my favorite of the show. For the first time, pretty much, I gave a shit about what happened beyond the Wall. I liked seeing the payoff of the contracting character circles; seeing the "Magnificent Seven" in the North was fantastic--the history between the characters coming out in the dialog, etc.

Tormund better have survived the Wall.  Him and Beric, oh sweet-voiced flame-sworded Beric.

I Love Cersei. I think she deserves comeuppance but NOTHING she has done is worse than what male leaders have done in reality and in the GOT universe.

I read a great article that points out that every season up until this past one was more historically realistic, as in historical fiction, but this last season was a more sensationalized fantasy for multiple reasons but including the concept that all the current players are not going to die until the very end. I think a lot of it has to do with Martin not have detailed outlines of how to end his magnum opus, but I still think the overall product is and will be enjoyable. :)

Yeah I hope Tormund survived too, otherwise Brienne is going to be broken-hearted.  :(
I also forgot to mention I loved that

Yeah, I pretty much loved everything about the season except Cersei and Euron.  That guy can go fuck an icicle.
