As much as it hurts I think fans should just accept it and move the hell on

Game of Thrones Season 5 Episode 6 Review: Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken

Well, a few things:
1. "Reek" going by the name of Theon has nothing to do with him snapping out of his "Reek" state. Theon was the warden of Lord Eddard Stark of Winterfell. That made him on a formal level the closest thing to a male relative (father of the bride in function) the Boltons had. "Who is presenting the bride?" "Reek, servant or Ramsay Bolton" sounds like less than "Theon of House Greyjoy, warden of Lord Eddard".
2. The "Rape" had been covered by earlier comments. By the laws of gods' and men in Westeros Ramsay was just consumating the Marriage. Something Tyrion was unwilling to do. That Ramsay has a different moral standard than Tyrion is big news to whom? Or to use Ramsay's own words: "If you thought this had a happy ending, you had not been paying attention."
3. Arya and becoming "Noone". The "Faceless Men" strive to become "noone". Meaning they leave their old lives and identities behind. A bit more poignant put "Arya can't be a faceless man. A girl can be." A Faceless Man does not judge or decide who deserves the gift (death), he is just a tool of the many faced god. Arya is still Arya. "Perhaps ready to become somebody else", is pointing towards a first appointment. And no, Ja'qen was not hitting Arya for telling the truth, but for lieing, even to herself. She hated him at some point in the past, but she did not when she left him to die.
4, Littlefinger is serving, he is just not serving Cersei or anybody else. Littlefinger is serving Littlefinger. Cersei is just too thick to realize this. Cersei is willingly outsourcing Power to this upstart from the Fingers.
5. Cersei's other delusion is, that the faith is/will be a faithful servant to the Throne once they dealt with the Tyrrels for her. We already got to see how they called Tommen first of his name "Abomination" when he tried to free Ser Loras. And Cersei's list of sins is rather long, Regicide, incest among others. And the "Brother Lancel" was an accessory to those"sins", that should sent off all the alarms.

The finale was a mess, not even a hot mess, just a mess. Bobbi's torture was just a plot point so that Lance could realise he still loves her and forgive her; and am I really expected to believe that Bobbi - who was shown to believe Coulson is a good man in 2.09 because of he's "there are no acceptable" losses philosophy, wouldn't even apologise to Kara for her actions leading to her brainwashing?? WTF?? Bobbi's a spy and capable of making the hard decisions, but she's never shown to be cold. Got to love the two abuse victims - outright said to be victims of abuse by Mo in an interview - were villainized. Also congrats to the three dead WOC in one finale Special congratulations to "redeeming" Cal by blaming his actions on his wife, a women of colour, who he then kills.... 2b's main problem, most obvious in the finale, was plot over character. The writers have got far too enamoured with their own plot twists and cleverness, and have forgot the fans who actually liked season 1 while pandering to the critics who disliked it.

I give it a B.

I'm genuinely bemused that you picked Lincoln as best new character when we have Bobbi Morse. Take Lincoln out and how would the plot change at all?

What about the The CW?

Sorry Amanda, I disagree. The show at it's heart was about this girl and how SHE brought them both back to their home and each other and how SHE put her life back toghether after the death of her parents with their help, and sometimes not helping. It was always at it's center about ALL 3 of them. Even the books were originally that way until they got even worse. (Sorry not sorry that it's some of the worst teen drivel I've read, not even sure how I managed to watch the show when I hated the books, show got GREAT though) I loved so much about the episode. Even the way Elena was "shelved" was great. I'm even looking forward to the new version of the show and I wasn't expecting to feel that way!!! Probably because they DIDN'T kill her and I totally thought they would be predictable and kill her.

I agree. The show was never just about 2 brothers finding their way to each other.Elena was the protagonist of the show. Elena,Stefan and Damon were the three leads of the show not just Damon and Stefan alone.

It was nicely done I have always hoped shows can go on when actors decide to leave and it's selfish for fans to say the show should end because one person decides to leave. Life goes on because even in reality when you lose someone, you don't say,'bury me too.'

I agree with wanting more scarier shows and going back to cases where the unsub got away.Your show is on my top 5 list of the shows I watch. Keep up the great work love you all

It's kind of rude to send hate to the writers. There's a huge difference between reacting in the appropriate space to a show (forums, blog posts, etc) and going out of your way to harass the writers.

White males are dispensable? I didn't see that remark when Isaiah Washington got the boot.

Seriously I'm surprised she's so thin skinned. Don't insult fans - no fans/no shows. It's a fine line Shonda, so suck it up, and don't tell people how to think. It will blow over, and we will have season 12. That's when we see if she can make it interesting, or more of the same

Well fans get emotional about characters they've spent 11 seasons watching. I wasn't happy when it happened, but I'm going to harass Shonda. However, I don't think she should be rude about fans voicing their opinion. If she has no fans, no job. I don't watch her other two shows. Didn't like either of them.

I agree! She's used to getting love, and not reacting well to viewer outrage. Suck it up and go on. People get over it eventually, but they are allowed to have an opinion and voice it

I think it's more than rude to send actual "hate" to anyone, and one can express outrage without hatred. But I don't think in this case the writer is being "harassed." Rhimes has always put herself out there to receive the reactions of fans and up until now, it's mostly been love and puppies. When a writer (and in this case, the creator) of a widely-known series takes such a risk, she has to know the payoff will be huge, one way or another. So she's sick of the backlash? She should be happy for the attention the show is still getting!
