The episode frequently felt contrived. Setting aside the whole Stannis mess, I half expected them to grab Indira whatshername right there and shake her down for the antidote. How could anyone be that stupid?
The things he did in the books are canon in the show.
Show Stannis held storms end for a year, eating rats rather than surrender.
Show Stannis smashed the iron fleet when the Greyjoys rebelled, defeating the greatest Naval force in Westeros.
But no, now show Stannis just looses all sense, burns his family, and charges into certain defeat.
The whole last third of this season has been "I hate Stannis Baratheon" fanfiction.
Also I don't understand why the fuck they killed Stannis. I thought he was the second coming of the lord of light. Seems pretty crucial to the plot.
Also in the book Jon snow dies (?) because he took the wildlings and some of the crows to go save Stannis which is against the oath. In the show he dies (confirmed in the episode explaining portion) because he led some men die into the hardhome? That's it?
Ugh I hate this show so much. Words cannot express the idiocy more so if GRRM helped it happen. None of the events have real motivation from the characters. They just happen because they can and for shock value

WTF? Why not have Ramsay Bolton decapitate and skull-f*ck Sansa too? I mean, why not?
Getting the sense show runners and GRRM don't exactly know where all this is ultimately heading or quite how to get there. Or, in the end, how they get there doesn't really matter. All the lead up to the climax is a total f*cking red herring.
Show Stannis was portrayed as an inept retard for all his actions. So he met his end.
The show needs an evil character to hate on and Ramsey is the new Joffery. So he is not gonna die easy.
We need less of Danny plot. Stupid shit.
Bran and his little brother is just missing now for a whole season? No sexy wildlings or fireball wizards.
The walk of shame is nicely done.
And how Jon Snow dies is filmed nicely. But the mutiny took so long in planning and there's been only Jon and Sam in the keep...
in the book khal's people are still with her in mereen and are part of her force and are close confidants. they seem to have just disappeared in the show. dont recall seeing them after she freed the unsullied

(If you're a serious nerd.)
Overall, I thought that was a solid episode.
