It's really not, because what makes GoT good is good writing.

When the shows passed the books, the writing took a steep dive, but S08E04 is a new low for them. Way low.

Filler episode somewhat, which is almost guaranteed after an epic battle ........... hindi naman pwede epic scenes after epic scenes - we appreciate those moments because of the build-up and the wait.

Hmm, after episode 4, I still hold on my theory that Dany somewhat becomes a mad-queen of sorts and meets her tragic end in the finale.

I still like it. As expected, ep4 is more relaxed and a set up for the next ones. Don't care about ratings. You need to watch every episodes anyway.
We're lucky to have a tv show like GOT. I don't want it to end really. Pero yet I'm excited every episodes and watch til the end part.

"Calm-before-the-storm" episode, but not without its shocking moments.

2 episodes na lang!

I'm sensing na ganun ang build-up, probably Dany, along with the last dragon will die soon and Jon will become the true king

Well, screw those ratings anyway. I enjoyed the roller coaster emotions of this episode, reminds me of the grim GoT episodes of the past,

Is that rating final anyway?

I like Dany's decent into madness that has been developing since the first episode, but that's pretty much the only arc that I'm interested in at this point. And I don't think she's gonna be like The Mad King type of insane. two of her dragons are dead, her knight protector is dead, her BFF is dead, almost all of her Dothraki are dead, her boyfriend is now her rival for the throne, and there is a disrespect for her authority at every turn. I don't think they want her to be mad in the same way that The Mad King was certifiably insane. I think she's just really really pissed and she's gonna snap next episode.

The commonly cited criticisms of that episode that I also share:

- How are people teleporting all over the place? Bronn gets a crossbow then arrives at Winterfell in 2 days worth of show time (which is hilarious considering the very first episode of the show tells how Robert was going to take 1 month to travel from KL to Winterfell). Also: The forces from the north discuss a siege on King's Landing and then the next thing we know they're there. Of course we know that they aren't teleporting... It's just the show's very poor pacing this season, cramming all of the things that need to be crammed within a short amount of time and sacrificing any sort of sense of time and place.

- And speaking of Bronn, how is he able to just waltz into Winterfell and into the room with the hand of the queen unchecked like that?

- How is Euron's fleet just able to sneak up on Dany's fleet like that in the open sea? How does Dany get ambushed at sea for a second time, even? She had an aerial view and you would think that she would have learned the first time. Dany knew that Euron was a part of Cersei's forces. They discussed that in the war council. But there are no scouts or anything to prevent getting amushed like that?

- And speaking of Euron, I know that it's established how the Greyjoys are amazing archers. But going from "amazing archer" to "being able to kill a moving dragon by hitting it three times from a moving platform from the other side of a mountain" is more than a bit of a stretch.

- Cersei had Dany right there. She could have commanded any or all of her forces to rain down the full fury of King's Landing on a completely vulnerable Danerys Targaryen & Co. thereby ending the war of The Seven Kingdoms. The fact that she didn't, when it's perfectly within her character to completely ignore all of the rules of honor and peaceful negotiation is another stretch.

- How does Missandei even get captured especially when Euron's forces need to go through actual fighters to get to her, they don't even know who she, where she is and what her relation is to Danerys is?

- And speaking of Missandei, she had her own shot at ending the war right there if she had pushed or taken down Cersei off the wall. She was literally right at the edge with their arms wrapped together. This is more an observation than a criticism though.

Either Sansa becomes queen or there'll be 7 independent kingdoms.

Deus Ex Euron :P When some people behind the show described this episode as Shakespearean, little did anyone realize that it would be a tragicomedy.

kasalanan lahat ni george martin... kung nagsulat na sya, baka mas maayos pacing ng show.
tsaka meron din bang arrows behind euron's ships? kasi kung wala, pwede umikot si daeny sa likod, pwede nya sunugin yung ships

That's my prediction too. I think it's either Sansa or nothing. Sansa is the most qualified among them: She's compassionate, practical, level-headed, yet also devious and not naive. She also has two siblings with superpowers who can help her rule. She's totally queen material.

I kind of want to switch to Team Cersei. But I also still like the Stark sisters. I don't really mind what happens to either Jon or Dany now.

I liked how episode 4 turned out. Nitpick ko naman this episode is yung reloading nung scorpion.  How the hell were they able to reload that gargantuan crossbox to fire instantaneously like that? Nung pinakita naman yung platforms lalo na dun sa KL gate, wala akong nakita quivers or a pile of giant bolts. Pero syempre this series is part fantasy, a certain degree of suspension of belief is normally required.  ;)

In the opening scene, who is Jon talking to? His audience is behind him.

Anyone caught the teaser already? What do you think on the last shot? I think they’re playing a spin on rhaegal’s death or something to neutralize the scorpion like armor plates for drogon. 😄

Mahirap to judge episodes against one another.  They all have different stories to tell so yung exciting ang kwento, lamang dun sa laying the basis lang. Remember that ang series ender is always the hardest to do.  You can't please everyone, so tempered expectations din sa ending.

Jon might be a great fighter but he's really stupid and naive. He's not fit to be a king.. heck he's not even fit to lead an army

especially the ones who simply base how they will like an episode (or a series for that matter) based on reviews lang. Sure reviews help but it shouldn't dictate how one should see the episode. kanya kanya yan. not because majority sees something the same way eh we should see it the same.
