And could you please try to leave your personal feelings out the discussion? You loved the sh..  thing.  We get it.  Nobody is asking to stop loving it.

My personal feelings? Coming from someone who feels so betrayed by a television show they want people to lose their jobs over it. This is nothing but your self-entitlemend.

Nobody is asking you to like the show. Just accept this was the ending of Game of Thrones. Many liked it, you and bunch of others didn't, get over it.

You´re worried about D&D?  Awwww. Aren´t you a sweetheart!

And finally we agree..



In the end, I'm personally just happy that Game of Thrones was made in the first place. It was an incredibly ambitious undertaking, and even during a time period where we're constantly being bombarded by quality entertainment from all fronts, GoT stood out in the best way. Regardless of how everyone feels about how they wrapped it up - and I certainly have my issues with some of their execution, and pacing - I think we can all agree that we got some of the best seasons of television along the way. It's legacy, in my mind at least, is an overwhelmingly positive one, and hopefully it'll inspire more projects in it's vein.



Hes paralyzed from.the waist down meaning his penis broken. Doubt westeros have developed artificial insemination for that  situation 😂.  Its not a starbuck coffee moment. Sorry for being crude..

After what they have been through and after what they have seen in kings landing ofcourse they want to end it in  a calm manner without causing another war..

As i have said bran has the ability to see things that no king has been able to do as hes the three eyed raven. That alone is far better skill to have then having coward and selfish jon as king.

Remember the unsullied were pissed for their queen being murdered..their troops outnumbered them. Causing another war would result to nothing but bloodshed. Everyone there just wanted to pick a ruler that cant be easilt corrupted and doesnt want power and hasnt committed a crime.

You have to remember they are all exhausted after fighting two wars. They are not dc comics where they are gods and have unlimited stsmina lol.

Its a plausible scenario . Afterall thar has been the goal the entire series apart from killing the whitewalkers.

Because the history of Westeros is full of people calmly choosing their next leader?  The only reason it worked this time was because the only people who wanted the throne were already dead and for some reason Dorne and the Iron Islands forgot they wanted independence.  That's not going to happen every time.

And being paralyzed does not necessarily mean a dude can't have children.  It depends on the specifics of the injury.

At least we know Edmure Tully is still around.

I repeat, being paralyzed does not mean that a dude can't have children.  It might mean that, or it might not.  It depends on the injury.

I'm not sure how the other part applies to my post.



I've had a few days to process now, so these are my opinions on the final season of GoT overall:

The Good

-Almost all of my favorite characters survived the whole series. Arya, Jon, Bronn, Tyrion, Brienne, Sam, Gilly, Davos. When I started the series about a month and a half ago, I started with the knowledge that Game of Thrones was a series that killed alot of characters, and I fully expected some character death to affect me so much that I would quit watching the show, which is what happened with 2 other shows known for their character deaths, Lost and The Walking Dead, both I quit watching after favorite characters died. However, in spite of my fears, that never happened in Game of Thrones, over the course of the whole show I only lost a few characters that I liked alot, certainly no deaths major enough to cause me to quit watching the show. I hate cheap knee-jerk deaths, and the earlier seasons had alot of them, I'm glad that D&D mostly got rid of them in the last few seasons.

-The character arcs for the main characters were all wrapped up satisfactorily in my opinion. I was glad that my suspicions about Dany from way back in season 1 were confirmed in the end, I knew she would become a villain all along. Jaime and Cersei's arc ended exactly the way I expected it would, I knew that his love for her couldn't be stopped and that he would eventually die with her. Jon's arc ended not the way that I expected, but the way that I hoped it would, I knew that he didn't want to rule and would rather return north to live with the free peoples, and he got his wish in the end. Arya, ever the adventurer, had her arc end by setting sail for adventure, searching for a new continent to the west. Tyrion got to become hand of the king, the one thing he was shown to be best at in season 2 and 3. Bronn, after seasons of broken promises about riches, titles, and castles from the Lannisters, finally got the lordship and riches he wanted. Sam, the most unlikely of heroes, not only survived the show, but got to become a Maester, a role he was always well suited for. Davos Seawoth lived up to his name by becoming the Master of Ships on the small council.

-The music was great.

-The epilogue sequences were really well done, I especially liked the small council scene, it brought such a big smile to my face.

The So-So

-The cinematography was hit and miss this season. It was dreadful in episode 3, the entire battle against the Night King was so dark that it was hard to see what was happening. However, they also managed to pull off fantastic shots like this:

The Bad

-Poor shooting location choices. Why does King's Landing look so different from earlier seasons, with a giant desert field in front of the walls? Why are their deciduous trees with leaves on them in Kings Landing in the middle of the long winter?

-The unanswered questions. Where the heck was Gilly in the finale? Did Sam and her get married, and if so, how, Maesters swear a vow of celibacy. Did Bran change that law? How did they rebuild King's Landing after the massive damage Dany wrought? The 2 richest houses in Westeros were the Lannisters and the Tyrells, Lannister Gold mines ran dry and Cersei spent all of the Tyrell gold on Mercenaries. Maesters were saying that the winter would be one of the longest ever, and their were concerns about starvation in earlier seasons, with food being stockpiled in Kings Landing to last the winter, but surely Dany's attack would have destroyed those food stores, how did they last a further 5+ years of winter with minimal food? 

-The Night King. This dude was supposed to be a big threat, but he died like a total chump, without even a proper 1v1 fight scene. He never spoke, we learned nothing about his backstory except that the children of the forest created him.

-The low number of climactic 1v1 battles. We got 2 the whole season, Jaime vs Euron and The Hound vs The Mountain. It's pretty lame that Jon, Arya, and Brienne went through the whole final season without proper 1v1 battles. At the very least Arya should have got one against the Night King instead of killing him almost instantly. 

-Too short. Even though the last 4 episodes this season were roughly 20 minutes longer than prior episodes in the show, the last season still felt rushed due to having only 6 episodes. I feel like they should have gone with 8 episodes instead of 6, to give them more time to wrap everything up, to make the Night King a bigger threat that lasted multiple episodes, and to make Dany's fall to darkness a bit more gradual than it was.

Overall rating of season 8: 7.5/10

Great post and I agree! I bet most viewers had issues with last couple of seasons but they did wrap the thing up in 8 years. That's something the author hasn't been able to do in two decades. We can only hope he'll eventually finish his work but he seems to have many other projects as well.

At least we could/can enjoy this epic adaption of the story in the meantime. I'm already watching it again.

Felt sorry for the dude,too kind(and clumsy) to be caught up in the Game of thrones. :p

Spoiler!
My heart broke from the look Deanerys gave Jon when he stabbed her.
