"Game of Thrones" just lost me EXACTLY the same way "True Blood" did

First off, I don't want to hear anything about "it's happening the way the books are written."  In both cases I'm strictly talking about the TV shows.

I'm a big Game of Thrones fan, and I'll definitely keep watching when it comes back.  But, the most recent episode/season finale unnecessarily stretched the bounds of reality and likely sent the show in a whole new direction.

There was already so much cool stuff happening, one thing it absolutely did not need was an evil army of skeletons climbing out of the ground, and a little girl throwing magical grenades to fend them off:

But the funny part is, I began to lose interest in HBO's True Blood when it literally made exactly the same mistake -- introducing magical grenades:

True Blood already had more going on that it could handle with vampires, werewolves and shapeshifters; then it totally started careening off the rails with the whole fairy/magic subplot.

Now I'm worried that's where Game of Thrones is headed as well...
