How come in the season before s7, game of thrones had a different vibe/feel to it ?
It felt more like the game of thrones I remember. The white walkers building up as a background threat, more focus on charcter background and actual care for the story.
S1-s6 or 5 felt different from s8
It had emotion and drama in it. From robb swinging his sword at the tree after ned died. And when there were many dynamic duos in the series.
