The Long Night is lowest ranked Game Of Thrones episode since Season 5 and second lowest of all time

Game of Thrones is one of the best shows on TV and has been for a long time. This means the show has had consistently excellent ratings, and it’s next to impossible to find an episode with bad reviews. However, Game of Thrones Season 8 episode 3, “The Long Night”, premiered this Sunday, and the mixed reactions have pushed the episode down to some of the lowest ratings, ever. Read on!

HBO releases photos from Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 3: The Long Night

Now, you might remember just that one Game of Thrones episode that got a lot of hatred. It was Season 5, episode 6, “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken”, which is infamously remembered for the Sansa Stark marriage scene and it is the lowest ranked Game of Thrones episode ever, standing in at a weak 57% on Rotten Tomatoes. “The Long Night” now has sunk to 75% at Rotten Tomatoes. While this is not as bad as 57%, it still makes the episode the lowest ranked one since Season 5, and the second lowest ranked Game of Thrones episode, ever. After “The Long Night” we have “The Bear and the Maiden Fair”, at 77%.

Fans had many complaints with “The Long Night”, the biggest of which was that it was too dark to comprehend, speaking in terms of lighting. Many fans were also disappointed that Arya was the one to kill the Night King and that it seemed too easy for a villain with such an elaborate set-up to be killed so easily.

This episode also is a record low for Miguel Sapochnik, Game of Thrones’ speciality battle episodes director, who usually has very high ranks with his episodes. It’s also sort of a shame because Game of Thrones has a whopping 22 episodes that are rated at 100%.

So, did you like the episode or did you hate it? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

For heaven’s sake people, of course it was dark. How could it have been anything BUT dark??!?! Dark, confusing, chaotic – just like the battle itself, how better to put the audience in the shoes of the characters??. But hey, the Night King should have thought about ratings and attacked in broad daylight. Yeah, right. Tyrion had a little prophetic moment in episode 2 where he said, “like all clever people I underestimated my enemies”. Then the Night King comes along in episode 3 and does exactly the same thing. The smug little smile said it all, he thought he… Read more »

It wasn’t just dark. It was so dark it was unwatchable. I’ve seen every single episode, and there were multiple battles that occurred at night. I could see what was going on in every other episode. This is a television show, not a radio broadcast, which means we need more than just sound. It doesn’t matter how much work they put in if people can’t see it. It obviously wasn’t well thought out if it wasn’t watchable.

Ever been to war at night? Thought not, because even being in a battle at night you see very little. I have been in such a battle many times, and since it is TV, I suggest turning lights off to see better. Because this does not get any better. Sorry I disagree, but loved the show and thought it was well thought out.

I was disappointed in how hard it was to watch the battle scenes. It was a struggle to see what was happening because it was too dark, and too fast. Perhaps for folks used to playing videogames but I’m 53 and what’s the point of filming 55 nights if folks can’t see what’s happening. Otherwise I’m happy with the episode.

I posted this on fb as a response to someone who claimed the episode was amazing simply because it was unexpected: There’s a difference between being unexpected and just doing a cheap trick. It would have been different if we had Jon Snow face a one on one battle with the night king and then just when he is about to die, Arya shows up and kills the night king (Howland Reed style). But instead, we got a cheap shot. We spent all this time talking about how terrific the army of the death was, how evil the Night King… Read more »

Fully agree. All along Jon has done all the efforts, given his life to unite the Living against the Dead. And in the end he does not get even a single shot at the Night King. He should have been the one who kills the Night King in a one on one battle.
I can accept Arya killing Cersie but surely Jon should have been the one for the Night King.
Also in the entire episode Jon and Daenerys do nothing but fly the dragons. Very disappointing

On all those points I actually agree with you. The lighting would indeed definitely be bad in an episode called The Long Night. It was long, and it was night, not that surprising indeed. I actually read an interview with the guy who plays Grey Worm, who had a much better explanation for the ending too. Everyone complains Jon should’ve killed the Night King, but a. GoT never does what we expect it to do, when will people finally understand that just because it seems ‘destined’, doesn’t mean it must happen, and b. Arya’s entire story arc has centered around… Read more »

Have you seen Lord of the rings battle at night ? The point of fliming a battle at night is to show your audience that that characters are having difficulty in the dark and not to make it difficult to people to see.

Finally! Someone that gets it! The dead march in darkness. They are enveloped by it. Every time the camera panned out to open areas leading away from Winterfell all you could see was DARKNESS. Point out one instance in this show where they didn’t use clues to what was coming? I’ll wait.

From the very first time they showed Arya in Season 1 she was working to this very point. So if people don’t understand that then they need to go back and rewatch the entire show.

I watched it, it was dark but I liked it. I’m glad I don’t have the need to pretend to be some sort of “connoisseur” when it comes to what I watch. It’s either I like it or don’t.

Well certainly didn’t love it. I’m ok with the super Death killer, killing Death, but agree with the “it would have been cool if we we could actually see what was happening” crowd. So many cool things were supposed to be happening, but it felt like they decided to save thier budget by just making a lot of noise on a dark stage.

It’s not about the Dark, it’s about the bad writting! And the really really really bad battle strategy.

Who put infantry in front of their defenses pikes and who just charge like that, not even flanking. Dothrakis are not Heavy Cav, they don’t just rush straight front in ennemies infantries. That’s just dumb. And that’s just some examples.

General Nick, sorry the battle strategy was not to your liking, but then again they did not call you to offer hundreds of thousands to tell them how it should be done. But not dumb by any means, as the Dothrakis have fought every battle that way. If you find the show so dumb in your opinion, stop watching! Has Nick been to war, in battle? I have, and even the best laid plans fall apart. Lets see, we are talking about 20,000 going up against over 100 thousand? Does that not tell you anything? And please, this is a… Read more »

Do yourself a favor and watch the scenes in the first seasons. Then you might understand what people are complaining about. Plot armor, hoolywood cliches and complete lack of consequences for the actions of the main characters are as far away from the GOT spirit as you can get

I, for one, loved the dark, gritty, chaotic atmosphere. It’s war, people, and war isn’t tidy or well lit.

As for the appropriateness of Arya taking out the Night King – somebody had to do it. Jon was detained by a dragon & nobody else was around. She’s already shown off both her stealthiness and her fighting skills – she’s earned this kill.

I thinks the problem is on the television or smart device you are using, “The Long Night” is one of the best, it was as realistic as possible as it could, what do you expect when the weather condition and time you really have to see the darkness of the battle and that’s just being realistic, if it was well lit then it’s as fake as it can be, the show runners and everyone in the show did a very good job in every detail of that war.

I shouldn’t have to invest in a top of the line television to be able to visually see what was going on. My television is only about a year old, mid-price range and I found the episode nearly unwatchable. I cannot think of any other show or movie where I have had this issue.

Loved it – dark, eerie, foreboding – all the things it was meant to be – I had issues at the start with the darkness on screen but I tilted my screen a bit and it was fine – as for how easy it was to kill the knight king – it took almost the 90 mins to get him and entirely prophetically right that it was Arya – the show is called Game of Thrones – not the Invasion of the White Walkers – bring on the last war – can’t wait.

LOVED IT! It was a night battle, so of course it was dark. The tension was off the chart. Yeah I’m surprised more key characters didnt die, but not disappointed that they didnt. Arya was the PERFECT slayer of the night king, that bastard. To catch that dragon glass in her other hand was fanfreakingtastic and was what got her the kill. Call it luck if you want, but it was PERFECT. I loved it!

I thought it was epic, yes the lighting wasn’t the best, but it was done that way to make it more dramatic and more foreboding.
Aria’s conquest of the nights king was totally unexpected, but then those 2 men that are in charge have always been unafraid to push the envelope.
I can’t unders how it could have been the lowest rated, as the action was epic.

Arya got quite annoying as a character after season 4. In the story she only had a short few years training to learn these devastating skills, she isn’t even a fully developed adult nor a long term veteran like Jaqen H’gar, but she killed the most frightening, powerful being in Westeros history: the being that has legends and horror stories going back centuries, can raise the dead, control dragons, yet was fooled by a short, quite graceless girl with very little reach doing the old knife switcheroo trick. It’s not exactly the epic showdown that had been building for 8… Read more »

What pains me the most is that all the Azor Ahai plot was wasted just like that. People were speculating about Jon being Azor Ahai reborn for couple of years now and every fan of the books and the show wanted to see Jon kill the Night King in an epic duel. We never saw what Night King is capable of in combat and to see him die in such a lame way was just disappointing and heartbreaking. Arya jumping out of thin air was so stupid, I guess no one was expecting that but point of stupidity still stands.… Read more »

I’m pretty disappointed 🙁 the light ok… It was night and long and dark 🙂 but: we’re working now for seven seasons against a dark enemy and Arya killed it so easily? Come on!!!

And the crypt of Winterfell: how powerful it would have been, if the dead Starks would have risen to protect their family? That would had given me some goosebumps. Not a few dead bodies crawling around 🙁

When you compare this highly announced episode with the season’s end of season 7, it fails 🙁 sad, but true

the worst episode by far and by a margin. to set up a character like night king like that for 9years and to end him with a littlefinger dagger. forget the prophecies,azor ahois and the nisha nishas. to think off night king could properly kill only 1 main character Theon(wont consider jorah and others as they died after the battle is over) and Walder Fray has killed more characters then the Night King speaks volumes of how the characters are handled after 5-6th season with GRR.

While it would have been nice to have seen everything clearly, it wouldn’t have been realistic. They were fighting during a blizzard at night. I’m guessing they wanted you to have the same trouble seeing that those on the ground fighting would have had. Bran couldn’t tell anyone what he knew because it would have altered the outcome. Just like when he told Theon that everything he had done had lead him to this moment.

I liked the episode, especially that Arya was the one that killed the Night King. I also thought is was plausible since no one expected it, what makes you think the Night King would expect it. That’s why he sent is dragon to detain Jon and smiled at Dany when fire didn’t kill him.

Loved it! The Knight King wasn’t killed easily – he was seconds away from killing every living creature in the north. Jon had tried, Dany tried without success. It was absolutely fitting that Arya killed him, she’s been training as an assassin for years. And lastly, there’s only one way for him to have been killed, which means he was difficult to kill. Arya’s blade found the spot! It was amazing!

The darkness in the episode never bothered me, and to be fair, I found the episode thrilling.

The pros: the visuals were stunning, the actors are great, the triumphs and deaths were heartfelt.

Netflix’s The Sandman releases first look at Gwendoline Christie’s Lucifer: Queen of Hell

The TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman is one of DC’s most highly anticipated projects. The Netflix series garnered quite some attention, as it includes an ensemble of highly talented casts, including Game of Thrones alums. Gwendoline Christie, who played Brienne of Tarth in the fantasy series, will play a gender-swapped version of Lucifer in the show. And she is highly excited about it. Netflix has finally released a first look at Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie on a new poster of the drama series The Sandman.

Netflix’s newest DC series The Sandman provides the first look at Gwendoline Christie as the Queen of Hell, a female version of Lucifer.

At Saturday’s virtual DC FanDome event, viewers got a glimpse at the Game of Thrones alum as the series’ Lucifer, the ruler of Hell. The first look images see Christie donning dark attire and a pair of ominous-looking wings.

Based on the popular comic book series, the series is described as a “rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy in which contemporary fiction, historical drama and legend are seamlessly interwoven.” The Sandman follows the people and places affected by Morpheus, the Dream King, as he tries to fix all the cosmic and human mistakes he’s made during his vast existence.
