Enjoyment: Every single potential source of joy in the show is systematically destroyed. Unlike early seasons, when they seemed to think brooding was romantic, or season five, when they were coping with heavy drama, this season it's just straight-up depression. And even the comic relief characters are given buckets of misery to wallow in. Not fun. C
