10 Things From the Latest Episode of Game of Thrones That Straight-Up Do Not Make Sense
Warning: Very confusing spoilers for the latest episode of Game of Thrones below!
You know what? I'll just come right out and say it — this season of Game of Thrones has been an utter and complete disappointment. Although I know that showunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss can't please everyone with their story choices (and should never be expected to bend to the will of fans), I've found myself overwhelmed lately as I've watched beloved, intelligent characters act in ways that are completely foreign to their personalities and do things that make little to no sense.
Season eight's fifth episode, "The Bells," takes the most disconcerting plot twists yet. From anticlimactic deaths to battle tactics that would make even the most cursory Game of Thrones fan shake their heads, the entire episode is a confusing mishmash of bad decisions. Ahead, I'm breaking down the most egregious.
