There's also the issue that they failed to resolved all the loose ends from threads they've woven over the last 7 years.

It was like they opened up, "Screenwriting for Dummies" and plugged in every derivative, tired device they could. That's why everyone is calling it 'predictable'.

Jon is the ultimate hero. He only wants to do whatís best even if it means sacrificing his own happiness.

Bran is a logical choice because you canít have John be the king or else the Unsullied and Dothraki would have started another war. Bran is the only one with no beef with anyone. Yes boring choice but sometimes boring is the road to peace.
Lord never gave up their birth rights. Another lord will be named as the next king. Itís just you canít inherit the throne that rules the 6 kingdom.

WHAT??

I'm very into writing and the nature of story telling, and the conclusion was so flaccid. In the media, apologists are saying, "They couldn't make everyone happy." Since when has Games, or HBO been a fking Disney series? The one thing I counted on was poetic resolution and they just gave up on attempting anything clever.

Tyrion is GOT winner.

He knows if he takes the throne there wonít be peace.

At least with Dannyís heel turn thereís always been hint. She was never a good negotiator and always rely on fear, fire, and blood to get what she wants. Tyrionís speech was spot on when he talked about Dannyís thirst for blood but we turn a blind eye because she killed the bad guys

Also Jon Snow isn't a hero, he was portrayed as a coward who didn't do what he had to in order to save thousands of lives until it was too late. And afterward he didn't receive a heros praise but was outcastes and forced to renounce all his claims to the throne. That's not a hero, that's a tragic figure.

Also what's the point of Tyrions speech to have elected kings when Sansa basically said yeah you go head and have fun with that but will break away and continue our tradition of birthright lineage, starting with me, basically undermining everything Tyrion said and the lords agreed on, but we are supposed to overlook that? Hell if I am one of the other Lords how long before I say I'm breaking away from the realm also and naming myself king of my region?

Yes agreed with the council. That was too rushed. She could have made arguments about the men they lost protecting the realm etc..or how about the North has always been on their own and left out anyway as mentioned on the show. Yup rushed indeed.

The last season made no sense when you look at the development of the character, It was a cop-out.



I actually thought Brandon should be King, I said to myself there's no way the story would end up like that because he would not have been accepted as king. Well, that didn't stop HBO from doing it anyway.

Ironically, they made the joke about democracy and the viewer is supposed to laugh because of course that world was not ready for democracy. But, then they serve us up this idea that this boy, who was not groomed for leadership, who has never had an opinion about anything, who is not well known, and can't use his legs is going to be accepted by all the armies and nations....

HBO did to Thrones what Disney did to Star Wars. Predictable, safe, and smiles for everyone.

I would accept three outcomes for this show.

1. Jon and his Aunt rule together. Jon in the north and her and the rest.

2. Jon kills his aunt and the North and the unsullied battle it out, however this time the slavers and the dourish come in and help out the north and Jon is the king.

3. Dragon queen realized what she has done , frees her dragon and gives the throne to Jon.


That's just an never ending cycle of the super elite having a elite club of voting. Why wasnt the house of Reed there ? Why didn't the dornish challage this ?

There's no way powerful Lord's would when agree to this with out kick backs or some kind of perks.

Then this idoit chooses the midget has the right hand man ? R we serious. That guy should had been dead before the season finale.

What they did to Jon snow was straight up wrong.

Have the last 5 episodes concentrate on Danys slow transformation into madness. Have Jamie kill Cersei in a murder suicide to prevent Dany from destroying the city, but do it so it was a little too late to save the city anyways.

In the finale or episode before have Dany murder Jon out of fear for his lineage and because of the fact that his heroics against the night king has gained him far more love and admiration from the people than her. Have her kill Jon but not before he impregnates her with an heir whose a baby son.

Force Sansa to bend the knee or watch winterfell and the North burn. Sansa bending the knee or winterfell burning would both be satisfying.

Relieve Tyrion of his command and have him retire to Casterly Rock for giving crap advice for the past couple of seasons.

Finish the final episode with Dany sitting on the Iron Throne pregnant with Drogon behind her and Sir Davos as her new hand.

Boom, it would've been a master piece instead its a master piece of shіt.

Itís officially in production according GRRM, and HBO has confirmed that there is one in development but are tight lipped about any other projects (probably because theyíre not official). It has a whole cast and everything. HBO probably wants it asap lol, canít blame them. No more boxing, no more GOT. So a lot of people probably donít find HBO worthy after Sunday.

ATM why do i care about some cans who got defeated in one episode by a little girl

The ending was meant to be bittersweet.. but other then Danny.. pretty much everyone got a "good" ending they wanted..

Arya goes becomes Columbus
Sansa becomes Queen
Bran becomes King
Tyrion become hand
Bronn becomes lord of the reach (WTF On this total fanservice)
Sam becomes Grand Maester
Davos becomes Master of Ships
Brienne and Pod become kingsguard
Gendry becomes Lord of Dragonstone

Like only Jon gets a debatable ending.. and even then i am sure he's just happy to **** the South.. he killed his lover.. Never wanted to be King.. Probably he is happy to go North beyond the wall

How is this game of thrones? the show of Ned's execution, The red wedding.. Hardhome.. Stannis burning his daughter alive (BS but still extreme moment)

It's some hollywood esque ****.. everyone gets there dream job and lives happily ever after

thrones has been crap since the two show runners ran out of source material from GRRM after season 4. each season since then have been crappier than the next minus the big battle episodes which even itself had problems. thrones used to be known for killing any notable character and the manner in how they killed those characters, their great character development, brilliant writing and story telling. that all went out the window when dumb and dumber (as the two show runners david benioff and d.b. weiss are known affectionately by hardcore thrones fans) couldnt lean on GRRM content and instead decided to use fan reaction videos on youtube for their artistic guidance.

this last season takes the cake because the two show runners were offered to either do 10 episodes or 2 more seasons to properly end thrones but they chose to end it in 8 episodes because they've been offered the next star wars franchise.

instead of properly ending a legendary tv series and rewarding a faithful fanbase that made them rich and famous in the first place, the two show runners microwaved dinner the last season in order to take the star wars money.

I mean even the start of the season and first couple of episodes started out somewhat ok and not rushed,then suddenly it just fell off the cliff....

All one has to do is look at who did the writing for the first couple of episodes and who did the writing for the last 4:

That would've been a stupid ending as well because,

A. They just defeated the white walkers so for them to return so soon makes absolutely no sense

And

B. Whose to say those symbols weren't made by the night king right before the white walkers crossed the wall.

They predicted Jon Snow's parentage (R+L=J) since '96. Predicting the show isn't anything new.

Most complaints I hear are "why did Dany go mad?" "why did the battle with the undead only last an episode" "Why did Jaime go back to KL?"

Stupid common sense shit like that.

People are going to complain, whine and cry no matter what. Like I said, the people complaining that wanted a drawn out, entire season of the army of the dead marching to Winterfell are more than likely the same ones that complained the Negan/"All out War" storyline in the Walking Dead lasted two seasons.

this last season takes the cake because the two show runners were offered to either do 10 episodes or 2 more seasons to properly end thrones but they chose to end it in 8 episodes because they've been offered the next star wars franchise.

instead of properly ending a legendary tv series and rewarding a faithful fanbase that made them rich and famous in the first place, the two show runners microwaved dinner the last season in order to take the star wars money.

I mean even the start of the season and first couple of episodes started out somewhat ok and not rushed,then suddenly it just fell off the cliff....

All one has to do is look at who did the writing for the first couple of episodes and who did the writing for the last 4:

there's your answer.

greed.
Season 5, 6 and 7 was not terrible and full of interesting shlt.. Arya becoming a faceless assassin, feeding walder freys sons to him, wiping out the freys, jon snow becoming lord commander, facing the whitewalkers and the army of the dead, daenarys becoming a conqueror and acquiring the dothraki, cersei blowing up the sept, ramsay bolton's rise to power, the battle of the bastards, the starks reuniting at winterfell, dany sailing across the narrow sea, the first battle with the lannisters, jon snow being aegon targaryan and the true king, stannis defeating the wildlings.

Season 8 was just loosely put together, insubstantial, nonsensical garbage. None of it meant anything.

There was one cool moment for me in season 8... missandei's last moment and cersei asked for her last words and she said "Drakkaris!" Fiercely......

The way she said it gave me chills... and i had flashbacks of daenarys freeing her, and her rise to power, destroying the slave masters and conquering cities, being the breaker of chains.. the entire rode leading up to where she was... missandei was with her since the beginning. She believed in her with her entire heart. Being at her side was the greatest thing she had ever experienced and she could die proudly.

The way she said "drakkaris", she said it like a battlecry... like " I rode with the dragon... and she will take hers with fire and blood."

That was the only good moment in season 8 for me.
