    Maybe it's just me but I have a hard time getting into Chernobyl, mostly because I've read a few trustworthy accounts about how grossly over-dramatized it is compared to how the real event went down.

    Not like I was there or even old enough to remember when it happened. But I take issue with TV shows/movies that sensationalize real life events/disasters for dramatic effect. It seems like most are torn on whether it's doing that or not though. Some say it's stretching it way beyond fact and others saying it isn't.

    I don't.

    I get my news via NPR for the most part, not they're completely unbiased or anything

    There is always going to be some dramatization and sensationalizing with any Hollywood project.

    One series that I found very interesting was Waco produced by Paramount TV. While there was some sensationalizing, the series was based off of two books, each written by individuals that were there on opposite sides of the siege (and the authors served as consultants). I was glad to finally see an account of the story broadcast to the general public that showed government culpability for the incident (both the onset and the ending).

    Jon turning himself in would make sense, but it wasn't a secret that he was in the throne room, Drogon just went bananas up there burning stuff and screaming, and there is a massive pool of blood on the ground.

    I don't think it was a stretch to figure out something happened and that Jon might know what it was.

    As the parent of an only child, it was pretty easy to figure out who broke the lamp.

    For sure. I would have liked to see the confrontation between Grey Worm and Jon to see how he got out of getting executed on the spot, but the Unsullied knowing that Jon killed Dany wasn't a stretch at all, to me.

    Technically Arya became an assassin because she went to Bravos, and Sansa became queen because of everything she went through (instead of staying a little bird). Both of which you can give credit to Little Finger...

    Ned definitely gets credit for Rob as king and maybe even for Jon, at least him being the man he was. He can have credit for Rikon being a cunt too.

    And nobody is claiming Bran :facepalm:

    I would love to have had a Trial by Combat between Jon and Grey Worm, though I don't think Jon would win that one, unfortunately...

    What about Jon + Ghost VS Grey Worm? That'd be cool.

    Eh I don't know that'd be a good fight, but I honestly think Jon would win that one. But we never have seen Unsullied vs. a knight have we?

    Ser Jorah kicks some Dothraki ass in the books, IN PLATE ARMOR, but I can't remember if he sparred with an Unsullied.

    Not in one-on-one, at least not in the show that I can remember.
