I don’t think that’s what’s going on here at all! You can tell interesting stories perfectly well in defiance of tropes. That’s not what the show’s doing. It’s telling a boring story.
In fact, my biggest problems with the show right now (I haven’t watched the finale yet) are where it’s making its interesting characters into tropes before letting them contribute to its unfolding events.
