so let's think about if you were trying to create a well written organic feeling world. Do you
a)have episodes that build to the next big plot one, often in a subtle way while also dealing with new issues causing an overlap
b)do something completely different and starting up a new story you have an idea for that intertwines with some old and new ones also being built
c)do something completely different with no plan if, how or when it will be picked up in the future
AT does c, you admit so and it is clearly the worst option. It doesn't help or add to that story and it isn't really overlap either. It is more like a row of separate events that by the end or far future may be tied together. Overlap would mean multiple threads being dealt with in the same episode. Which they could easily do, you can make PB appear tyrannical in an episode that in some way is building up to Martin coming back. Which does not have to be a direct linear story.
What you are saying AT does well, is not being done well at all here and it can be easily seen how much better they could have done it. Having Ampersand appear in S6 is nothing special, it doesn't create some oh so complex messy lore you have to remember. It just makes you lose interest cause it happened 4 years ago and fuck all was done in the mean time. But then Jake turned blue so overlap how clever>Not every story point has to be brought together
Which means your whole idea is only supported if you pick and choose carefully. There are ideas left in a row, if your lucky one gets picked up and if you are even luckier it isn't ruined. >there's nothing inherently wrong
It doesn't have to be, however the execution of it is incredibly poor.>It absolutely is.
Not it is not, no one had an overall vision for AT. A lot of writers just come and went sometimes attempting a patch job on story lines. There is no intent for this messy organic world you are trying to conjure up. It is actually just poorly done.
