The time jumps aren't the problem with this season of 'Game of Thrones' - it's everything else
After a strong sixth season that had cohesive, thematic episodes that played out organically with the narrative (the Arya/Waif plot excluded, and even that can be forgiven now), the writers proved that they were capable of moving this story forward and ending it without the guidance of George R.R. Martin's books.
Good things can be fleeting. In the shortened seventh season, I'd argue we've seen the opposite, the episodes jump from place to place, often skipping over long periods of travel.
But that's not the biggest problem. The problem is every other choice the writers have made, from characters to plot to dialogue.
Here are all the problems with the seventh season of "Game of Thrones" that will hopefully be forgotten after the season finale:
