Caution: This post is dark and full of spoilers.
Episode 3 of Game of Thrones season 8 just premiered and it was the devastating battle everyone thought it would be.
We lost many heroes.
But Arya cemented her place as GoT’s chief of badassery.
And while the episode was all in well received, everyone had one complaint.
Why was it so freaking dark?
The episode is very suspenseful but also, I can’t see shit. It’s too dark. #GoT— Saeed Jones (@theferocity) April 29, 2019
I mean, yes this was supposed to be a ‘dark’ show, but this is just ridiculous.
me tryna make sense of what’s going on with all these dark scenes #GOT pic.twitter.com/l7Nbg5MPaB— greyworm (@rukhsxr_) April 29, 2019
Can confirm. Was adjusting brightness every few minutes.
Public service announcement: Adjust the brightness on your screen. It is dark as fuck during this battle. #GameofThrones— Stacey Gomez (@staceygomez) April 29, 2019
Which also meant that this was all of us watching today’s episode.
