    I finally watched the final season last week. I'd avoided talk of it on social media, avoided learning details, knew it got a lot of hate though. And it was a letdown. Battle of Winterfell I liked...that was an amazing sequence and could have been extended. The King's landing battle started well then descended into a "holy fuck what the hell" moment. As I watched Dany speaking to her forces after the fall of KL, I immediately thought of GRR Martin's comments on keeping an eye on detail in plot. She's calling for basically the conquest of the world. There is no consideration for the losses her forces have taken after two major battles. Her soldiers reaction is mindless cheering. Things don't work this way. But even after that the most problematic issue of the episode for me was the ridiculous "compromise" between the allies afterward in choosing their next king. Bran? No. Just no. Martin's entire focus has always been on the parallels between his world and our own medieval history. A king might be crippled in battle and still rule during his reign, but an individual unable to even mount a horse or..I dunno...SIRE AN HEIR would NEVER have risen to a throne. Tyrion claims this to be an advantage. Speaking to a circle of nobles who's power RESTS on the traditional hereditary rights of their Houses. Physical disability would have automatically eliminated Bran from consideration in the first place. Bran's proper role would have been as a King's Hand...he was made for that office, and would have been an amazing counsellor. But King? I cannot see the remaining six kingdoms and their aristocratic families simply accepting this decision. Make for a good sequel though. The immediate and FINAL, catastrophic civil war in Westeros.

    Season 8 shouldve been dedicated to the Night king. Then season 9 should’ve shown Dany going mad and fighting Cersei. Finally Season 10 shouldve been Jon Vs Dany. Different writers and 10 episode seasons. That couldve saved the show

    I feel like I can't ever watch the show again, they've ruined everything. R+L=J meant nothing, The White Walker threat meant nothing, Daenerys' journey meant nothing, Jaime's redemption was ruined, it was all for nothing.

    I could defend Danny's decent into madness. Could give an argument about how every time she showed mercy or pulled her punches it went badly. All her biggest defeats were from being merciful. How she had lost complete faith in Tyrion and his advise to show caution was falling on deaf ears since his every idea had gone bad. How on the eve of her victory she wanted to set an example and make sure no one ever crossed her. Could go on and on about it. Wouldn't change that the show did a bad job with it and the rest of it just stank.

    The whole last season was litterally FAIL. They rushed every single aspect of the conclusion of every character's story. Season 8 just shows why GOT needed 10 seasons, and was meant to be 10 seasons.

    The ones who deserve our disrespect are Benioff and weiss. They didnt want to keep working on the show even though HBO offered them unlimited resources and their egos were do inflated that they refused to pass the torch to someone who was still passionate about Game of Thrones. They ruined the end to what could have been the greatest tv series in the world. Instead its going to be remembered by its horrendous ending for years to come.

    Better ending would’ve been is if while Daenerys is giving her speech, Jon walks towards her to kiss her and then stabs her. Drogon spits fire at Jon in front of everyone, doesn’t die then he says this epic line, “I am Aegon Targaryen, the true heir to the Iron Throne!”

    I feel so bad for my man here. These are the broken ramblings of a very intelligent man trying to rationalize that which cannot be explained away by logic. The producers and writers essentially SHIT THE BED and that's all there is to it. There is no rhyme or reason, it's like a random drive-by...there is NO rationale to it. It has completely ruined the show in ITS ENTIRETY!!! It is now UNWATCHABLE because you know what happens. HBO has a history of this with many shows not ending properly and I don't mean Sopranos. Dead Wood, Treme, GoT, Carnivale, Boardwalk Empire, all SHIT THE BED!

    I like final episode. Although I feel Jon Snow was too retard, thinking he was being dutyful/honorable. He should die on Winterfell for the sake of all the people. And don't get me start with Sansa "Cersei 2 Wildfire Boogaloo" Stark

    The best parts were Bran the Branch being the God-Emperor of the -7- 6 Kingdoms (possibly he's going to kill Sansa the Tyrant eventualy to regain the North), searching for Drogho as his pet-warg, and the creation of the GoT version of the Holy Roman Empire.

    Im liking this before I even watch it. I already know you’re are gonna thoughtfully tear this show (more its writers) the new asshole it so desperately needs. With more care than those dimwit hollywood show runners I’d add. It’s really the only way to fully expel the fetid excrement the “writers” so lovingly filled this aborted homunculus with and forced hbo to lock in our memories. You’re doing the lords work.

    Dany's tragedy is the tragedy of a ruler. She fixed the different problems of the cities she's been through. Everywhere she went she left a better world than she found and learned from her mistakes. In the end, she is cornered by Cersei into eliminating her vulnerability / weakness. And her weakness was Mercy for the innocent. A ruler can't afford her/his weakness in plain sight. She/he will be instantly attacked with that weapon. That is why she burns the innocent AFTER the war was won! No one would have ever used the innocent as a weapon ever again and no innocent would have ever suffered. That is the tragedy of a ruler. Sacrifice. A ruler must sacrifice the good of a few for the good of the many.
    That is the Dany story we are being told.
    I still think that Dany's speech is being shown through the eyes and ears of Tyrion, who's Valyrian is rubbish and misreads the situation...again. This leads him to quit, to think he was on death row - except he was not - that is why he is alive later in the episode, which leads him to manipulate Jon to kill Daenerys. All because of a huge misunderstanding. It would not be the first misunderstanding...see Rhaegar and Lyanna.
    Tyrion made a mess in Meereen, in his idealism that a conflict can be stopped. Conflicts can be won or lost, never stopped. Varys made a mess in finding the ideal ruler, a ruler with no flaws - for the good of the realm. There is no such thing! The good for some is the bad for others. Jon made a mess because of his honor, but also sacrificed his vows/his life for the life of his people! - Again the sacrifice theme. Dany was the only one who understood that. And Jon defended her because he was in a similar position. He never intended to kill Dany, but got manipulated by the idiots around. He instantly regrets doing it: "it doesn't feel right". And Tyrion doesn't answer like Arya does to Sansa in S07E07 "you did the right thing", after just a few weeks, Dany was no longer the new NK and the biggest threat to the people. "Ask me again in 10 years" means a huge regret! It means that what Jon did was wrong and he knows it. Jon lives now in agony that he did the wrong thing and even being free ("I'm tired of fighting") and the arrival of Spring can't put a smile on his face.

    The failure of Benihof and Weiscz to realize a show that did credit to GRRM's novels had a great side effect! Many talented people decided to accept the challenge to come up with better story, and some of them did an excellent job. I loved the creativity shown by fan fiction writers, While D & D seemed to go through the motions and count on special effects together with murder and mahem to to tell GRRM's story.

  • Thess Fangirl
    Thess Fangirl 3 أشهر قبل

    Dany going "mad" (which is a vague description) is already being set up, the denigration she felt in the books as she rode Drogon in last one, her delusion she's fireproof there (something shared by her father btw: first sign), and her resolution to embrace fire and blood, along with surrounded with the wrong people (without counting Barristan). Her father didn't snap into full pyromaniac until the Defiance, so it's not as if this was since day 1 (iirc, he seemed actually decent first then got his decline until it spiraled down). The show kind of mess up to make her really fireproof, and whitewashing Tyrion and Jorah, and give her Evil Queen Cersei as "opponent" when she's obviously getting kicked in favor of Young Griff and Dorne. The vision of the dragon cheered by the crowd (Young Griff for sure) while she gets rejected would make her snap among other stuff. The show really really messed up by removing that character, she got "paranoid" of Jon 'I don't want it' Snow makes no sense because he along with Cersei took a plot that wasn't theirs.
    Bran as King was confirmed, btw. The ending with Jon and Bran make a lot of sense, looking at the past and the result of the other High Council before this one that crowned Aegon V which ended up with his cousin, Lord Bloodraven (another stuff the show ignored! Since he is Bran's mentor and the previous greenseer) banished to the Wall. Now Jon gets banished to the Wall by his king and cousin. It is a fitting ending.

  • Daniel Foster

    An abbreviated final season is something that happens to a cancelled tv show, not the most popular show in the world. HBO should have dished out even more money to tie this up correctly. It's been a few months now and this show has died away from the public lexicon. A goid ending would not let that happen.

    Ok so I’m one of those asshole that everybody hates: I never liked the show all that much, and could not help but whine about what makes the books so, so, so much better. Yeah I get it, it’s annoying and I’m “that guy” but whatever.
    I still have only seen all of season 1 and several random episodes up until season 4. I stopped watching the show at all when I knew they were gonna pass the books in the timeline. Once that happened it was game over for me, I didn’t want the future books to be spoiled for me because of this damn show. Yet because it’s popularity and since the internet is a thing, it was pretty much impossible to avoid spoilers. I began to resent the show for this, and was slightly peeved that Martin was taking a decade between book releases (as if I’ve ever written a book though lol...)
    Now, I’m feeling slightly smug that the show went downhill to sharply in the last 2 seasons. Hopefully I can forget about the show now and enjoy the books free from it’s influence

    When Tyrion walked off alone while King's Landing was still being sacked my friends and I looked at each other like, "Uh. He's still supposed to be smart, right?" Then he reached the underneath of the Red Keep before Jon Snow could make it to Danaerys and we were like, "Oh this isn't a serious episode okay."

    TY for your review. I felt bad for the entire crew. it is not on them. Once showrunners cut GRRM source material down to certain storylines/arcs, they had no idea how to continue those characters once original book material ran out. I truly believe they knew they were out of their element (no original writing skill set) so time to wrap up the show and move on. Then the consequence, the S1-S4 great dialogue ( almost word from word from the books) turned into battle scenes/CGI effects (fan service) and script word count became less and less. Smart characters turned into idiots and went against everything we knew about them. After Hold the door episode, the magical/fantasy feel of the story peaked then disappeared. What was the point of the prophecies, wight walkers, children of the forest, and three eye raven? The story turned into subverting expectations which was, in the end, a ridiculous excuse for "we cannot write meaningful, cohesive dialogue" to continue good character arcs and great storytelling. Lord of the Rings rip-offs, the Mockingjay S8E6 CGI wingspan effect. I don't think D&D really cared about the show, fans, actors, any of it. The word Hubris comes to mind. Oh, yeah and D&D have submitted S8E6 for Emmy consideration for best writing and directing, LMFAO.

    I don't buy what they did to Danaerys either. She turned on a dime for the most silly reasons. The show had shrunk in size to a handful of characters and so we're supposed to believe she's going to freak out because a couple of people aren't into her being the ruler............ ridiculous. It would have had to be the whole kingdom to make her decide that if they wouldn't love her, then "let it be fear then". Even with her turning (which I don't believe) the better ending was for Danaerys to live and kill Jon, Tyrion and then took on the other Starks. The ending as it currently stands is full of cheese apart from Danaerys dying.

    It would have been great if they showed her descending into madness in a couple of or a single episode...maybe they would have called it The Mad Queen episode...rather than just showing the outcomes of it...
    They should've shown all thoes times when she was not eating and slowly descending into madness...

      @Suraj Singh In an episode you can't cover such plot. Madness is a disease that advances in a progressive way. It tooks years to someone to lose his mind. They should at least show in two or three episodes each season that something was not right with her.
      Well at least we agree that the ending sucks...

    Finally! Someone finally makes a statement about how Bran is the one who caused the most murders in the entire series. Show Daenerys didn’t really kill those people, Bran did by doing nothing the whole season. Viserion and Rhaegal could be alive, many of the northmen, all of King’s Landing, etc,. He actually knew that Daenerys would save Jon who was capturing one of the others to convince Cersei (which he knew wouldn’t work), knew Viserion would die because of it with the Night King using him to destroy the wall, causing the battle to start earlier, Bran also knew that the negotiations with Cersei would fail, he knew Rhaegal would die “because Daenerys ‘forgot’ about the iron fleet”, and Missendei would die (who is only supposed to be, what, 13 at most?), and that Daenerys would burn King’s Landing, causing Jon to kill her which broke his heart (I think?), and that he would end up the ruler of Westeros... also, the last Three Eyed Raven lived for an extremely long time, so how long will Bran’s rule last? Will it ever end?

    Did I miss the episode where Daenerys descended into madness? Last time I saw her she was helping Jon save the North and the next thing you know, Bam, she's the mad Queen. They did a good job writing the show, but the completely failed the last 2 episodes. The writers took the Daenerys fans and slapped us in our faces for loving a Character that was so obviously insane from the beginning. No, I'm not buying it. I love Game of Thrones and it's probably the greatest show I'll ever see, but Daenerys Stormborn Targareyen was a kind, warm and intriguing character from day 1. Daenerys will always, always be the Queen I would fight for from this day until my last day. Great video bro, I completely agree. 👍
