    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. Between Coffee gate Water bottle gate and Jamie growing back a hand the season feels like a real pile of junk. With out Martins work to guide them the show writers are just lost, terrible dialog makes it clear that the show has lost its way, all of the characterless are card board cuts of heroes and villains now, just what Martin set out to avoid in the books, the only hope is every one dies and it becomes a zombie show, may be Ash can save us.
