Fans troll the Game of Thrones lighting department after this week's episode
We've dedicated over eight years of our lives to Game of Thrones, and we finally got the battle we've all been waiting for against the Night King and his Army of the Dead. But some fans weren't impressed by the low lighting in this week's episode.
Okay, okay, so we get that the binary opposition of light and dark plays a big part in Game of Thrones - but when the lighting department could give Hollister a run for their money, we've got an issue. Joking aside, the episode was very dark, which made it very hard to see what was happening.
Turns out, we're not the only ones who couldn't see an effing thing in last night's episode...
Game of Thrones fans are kicking off about the lighting.
#GameofThrones spent all their budget on CGI Dragons and didn't have any money left over for some proper fucking lighting.— Disguised Toast (@DisguisedToast) April 29, 2019
Tonight’s lighting for Game of Thrones was brought to you by a tealight burning in the corner. pic.twitter.com/d1wFCIWDwg— Mo Moshaty (@MoMoshaty) April 29, 2019

Turn up the lights in here, behbeh, extra bright I want y'all to see this.
Oh no...what's going to happen next episode?
Seriously, can someone at HBO just make it a tiny bit brighter so we can actually see the damn show? Thanks.
