    Game of Thrones Final Season **SPOILER WARNING**

    Not really. I loved the finale. The endings to all the characters... didn’t have a problem with them at all. I understand the frustration with Bran. Doesn’t mean I hate it or don’t like it. The thing I hated most was a 60 second throwaway scene lol. Plus it’s really easy to agree with people when they are saying what I’ve been saying since very early in the season. Lol. You’re gonna bitch at me either way. I could argue and pick fights and you’ll make fun of me for defending the show. I can agree with people and you still moan about like a bitch in heat. GTFO lol.

    Game of Thrones Final Season **SPOILER WARNING**

    Yeah, his biggest weaknesses will also be his biggest strengths. For example, I could totally see him going full MR like you mention. But he can also see into the future, so I hope he does that and realize what route that leads down which then in turn lets him find a quasi-balance. I also think he surrounded himself with good people / advisers. He's really set up for success. And idk when, why, or how... Maybe just because he's gotten more experience as the Raven, but it seems like he's gained a little of that humanity back already. He was cracking jokes at the end there. It was kinda weird, actually... lol. Ya, he does have to take responsibility for the series of events that led to all this happening. I don't know for sure... but I'd like to think that it wasn't motivated by his yearning or a desire to be King though. Think back to when Jon revealed his heritage (or allowed Bran to, lol). He at that point knew how things would end, in my mind, but he did seemingly give Jon the choice to reveal it or not. If he chooses not to, does Bran influence events to ensure the same ending happens? I mean, I don't know... I'd like to think not. Catch-22 of that though, he probably gives Jon that 'choice' knowing what he will do. Just the paradox of having characters that are full blown time wizards, though. lol. And, again just speculation but perhaps Bran was being honest about not wanting the throne. But at some point he sees the future(s) and realizes he actually is the best option. The council didn't exactly have a ton of options to put forth. Jon probably wasn't an option due to uhh... regicide rofl. Not to mention he didn't want it. Edmure uh... LOL. Yes, they could've pulled a name out of the hate or ceremoniously given it to some other of our main characters but... I don't think that would have worked well either. Also, worst writing of the entire series.... Sam pulling out the actual Song of Ice & Fire and going full Tolkien. That was the dumbest shit ever.

    Game of Thrones Final Season **SPOILER WARNING**

    Yeah, I mean I get both. My gut tells me it doesn't make a ton of sense for the Three Eyed Raven to become the king... At the same time though, Tyrion is right. I think he will be a good king. Also, it makes sense considering Varys telling Tyrion that the best king would be someone who doesn't want it... We were all thinking about Jon, but the same applied to Bran. I thin this is Martin's ending, though. Big difference is that Bran is way more impactful in the books, so we will get even MORE on him and this rise to protector of the realm. And that's saying something considering we will get more on all of these stories -- I just think Bran alone will require beyond that. He's always had a ton of POV chapters before anyway. EDIT: I watched his interview at his locker talkign about that, he was very impassioned. lol. I don't think Dany should've sat on the throne though long term. Considering her descent to madness and all of her visions coming true -- it just wasn't meant to happen. I understand why people would want her to be on the throne though. But yeah, I think the rest just details what you said and what us other non-ragers (Kappa) like Stevo and I have been saying for like 8 pages of this thread. The detail and condensed nature of the main plot just doesn't take you to a place where you want Bran on the throne or to even really understand it that well. It was just kind of outta nowhere.

    Game of Thrones Final Season **SPOILER WARNING**

    This is a bad comparison to BB considering that was made by the writers themselves who knew exactly where and when the story was going at all times. Imagine Vince and Peter leaving Breaking Bad for the final two seasons and app they left behind was a cliff notes page on how to end the show. Does it end the same way? Is it as good. If you say yes, you’re nuts. Also im glad you brought up Drogon... I’ve been asking people most of the day what they think. Half the people at my workplace watch the show... and I’ve also been posting on Facebook in different groups. If they say they didn’t like it, I ask why. Most of them can’t name anything specifically ... One last did though. She said that he finale was bad because Drogon somehow felt Danys death and melted the throne. She said that was totally unrealistic because dragons are “ just animals”. I’m sorry but if you’ve paid so little attention to the show over the last 10 years to make ignorant statements like that, I may as well label you a Seanbrock and throw you into a volcano or some shot because there is no hope whatsoever.

    I really don’t think they could’ve made this much longer though. If they did they would’ve either had to get George to spill the beans about filler or make stuff up. The first is unlikely considering he isn’t even done with Winds yet, let alone Spring. The second one doesn’t make much sense considering everyone is complaining about their writing...

    I would really love to see a series that takes place after this... On the other hand, that may just ruin my imagination of how great and bad ass and better Westeros is now.

    To be fair -- you don't even understand the good pieces of writing the show has. Not sure we can really take anything you say seriously.

    Who? Amash? Hopefully lol. Would be real tough to pick between him and Tulsi... but I really would feel good about voting for Amash. Unlike voting for like... Gary Johnson who is kind of a dolt lol.

    Are you serious Cuda? Obviously the petition to rewrite Season 8 isn’t about rewriting Season 8. That petition is proof positive of the outrage culture taking hold of this thing. The “movement” has a mind of its own.

    Game of Thrones Final Season **SPOILER WARNING**

    I've fully admitted the faults of the show. I say what I think is wrong with it, then you just copy what I said... Lol. The only difference is you're outraged. You're feeding of the rage of others and doubling down. When you aren't agreeing with me, you're just posting things almost word for word off Facebook posts... Like the " At least GoT Seas 8 is good for the memes ". That's not a creative or original thought, it's the rage. And I agree with Stevo too. Expectations were high. Really high. Everyone had an ending they were imagining in their head over the last 8 years... Well, the show is actually ending and not everyone is getting it the exact way they want -- which leads to the complaints and outrage. Some complaints are valid, others not. I've sat here and agreed with you on multiple points, I've agreed with Bjorn on multiple points. Also, I think you posting the ratings and scores backs up what Stevo brought up and I added onto... Expectations were high, people didn't get it exactly as they wanted it. Ya'll are outraged, you see other people outraged and you want everyone else to know how outraged you are. That's cool. It is what it is. lol I jumped on the " this is super condensed " bandwagon very early in this thread... Mostly everyone seems to agree with that. I jumped on the Benioff and Weiss aren't good writers bandwagon. We agree on a lot of the main broader gripes of this season. A lot of the things we disagree on are in the details... And BTW, I have also said Benioff and Weiss aren't in this for the details, they are obviously and purposefully skipping details because they probably KNOW they suck at writing. The more detailed you want something, the more writing they have to do. I am the one who pointed out, in this thread, that HBO wanted more season (ka-ching ka-ching)... Dave and DB are the ones who said no. This is speculation, but I think there's a reason to that and it's because they don't want to write it! The other disagreements in this thread have come down to things like Bjorn and I seeing characters wayyyy different than each other. Or people complaining about the 3 really accurate scorpion shots that took down Rhaegal. As somebody who watches a ton of action movies and shows and stuff... I'm pretty used to the follies of accuracy. I just don't put much stock in that latter kind of stuff. The biggest pet peeves I am gonna have is how they wrap up and finish these individual character arcs. And with a ton of deaths and departures behind us, I don't have many of those complaints. [Edit] And let me say, that could change on Sunday. Maybe they wrap up the Starks and Dany , etc really badly. If I think so, I will let you know. [/Edit] I went through a lot of this with the TWD... I hated that show for so long, but kept watching anyway. I think I got some sick satisfaction out of hating it so much, lol. Eventually, I just said enough is a enough and quit watching it. Feels wayyyy better. lol And in the end, I'd much rather finish this series not being annoyed and just pissed off at everything lol. I admit the flaws it has, and I've admitted them continually. I am just not going to give into rage or get joy out of hating this so much.

    I don’t know if it’s the majority. Maybe like half. Overreaction was in the cards for those peeps though. Outrage culture is strong. Very much alive and well. Shows brought us on a beautiful journey. No reason to go in full out rage mode, for me. Such a waste of energy. But I do still enjoy seeing what you guys have complaints about and talking about it. I will never think Jaime was meant to be a good character from Day 1 like all of you. Just can’t get there, but that’s nature of debate I suppose. Ha

    Game of Thrones Final Season **SPOILER WARNING**

    The comments he’s made of them not being much different came in April, which is after your unsourced “radically different” quote. Shows fine. You guys are just overreacting and nitpicking. We could’ve gotten like 5 more seasons but they didn’t want to do that... oh well. 🤷‍♂️ still got 3 prequel series, one of which is starting filming soon and coming out next hear so that should be hype.
