I think peooke are complaining about "fan-fiction" a bit much. Yes, the writing is getting more predictable but that's also because it's what makes the most sense. Throwing in twists, just for the sake of a twist, is how you end up with TLJ or M. Knight movies. None of those lines were out of character.

The dialogue has gotten a lot worse. IMHO, anyway.

New drinking game: take a shot every time someone says "bend the knee."

"Stay back! He's got blue eyes!"
"I've always had blue eyes!"

"It's cold up here for a southern girl."
"So keep your queen warm."

"How did you sneak up on me?
"How did you survive a knife through the heart?"

"You still have it."
"Needle."
"Have you ever used it?"
"Once or twice."

"You left me to die."
"First I robbed you."
"You're a cold little bitch, aren't you? Guess that's why you're still alive."

This reads like fan fiction.
Sansa saying she always thought Tyrion was the most clever man in the world was also really bad. "I thought you were supposed to be clever" is a better line, and makes more sense.

I've only read the books, but the only thing Sansa ever got about Tyrion was that he was fairly kind and had a bulbous cock.

And the fucking dragon watching them make out? Fuck off.

I didn't mind the overall dialog too much, but I definitely felt like the Hound's lines were like bad fan fiction, limitedas they were.

Yeah, you can really feel that Martin's influence is done, and all that's left if D and D's hack dialogue. I felt it was really obvious in the scene where Varys bitches about Tyrion liking eunich joke but hating dwarf jokes. It's straight up hack sitcom writing.

“Tyrion said balls! [snicker] This show is so naughty!”

“LOL Jon asked Arya if she’s used Needle, he doesn’t even realize how uber she is!”

“Damn right you have to earn a queen! Cersei is so fierce! You go, girl!”

What I imagine people who enjoyed the premier were thinking.

BTW Arya’s flat affect since she got back to Westeros is annoying as hell.

That was a ridiculously awful exchange.

More middling tripe, but for Brienne's knighting.

That had a lot of weight for me.

And Tormund is an absolute gem.

But Jorah getting Heartsbane? Fuck off with the fan fic shit. That's mostly what this fucking shit has been so far, and it's annoying.

It's really fucking jarring to see show Jorah and Dany not actively fucking every 34 seconds, because the actress who plays her CLEARLY has the hots for him. It really feels more like he's an older man who is trying to prevent himself from fucking a younger woman, and not the balding, hairy, homely, stout mess that he is in the books as the main reason why she doesn't want to fuck him.

Because ultimately she didn't and can't find him physically attractive. But show Jorah, it's the exact opposite, and it doesn't make sense why they're not fucking.

Gendry is 5 years older then Arya. Actor is 31

Can The Night King raise any dead? Not just ones he's personally killed? Cause if so its probably not a good idea to be chilling in a crypt
