    The sports equivalent of this would be an exciting football game, back and forth, trick plays galore, tied score going into the fourth; the clock malfunctions and speeds up, so both teams decide to run out the clock.....

    Welp, was hoping that the Imp and the Queen in the north would pick up their marriage where it left off... Guess not.

    Did they intentionally tank the final season? Were they just like, let’s write such an awful final seasons, fans are fed up by the end and checked out. Then we can put whoever the hell we want wherever the hell we want!

    I thought the episode was ok. Didn't hate it, didn't love it, but the expectation has been set low

    I figured Jon would kill Dany and not end up on throne, him going to with free folk isn't a surprise, but I didn't know how they'd handle it

    @Jiddy must have loved Tyrion realizing he was a doofus, but saddened he still gets to be hand

    The butterflies on Naath carry a fatal disease for outsiders.

    They're all going there to die.

    So the North declares independence and everyone is cool with it and Dorne and the Iron Isles don't try for the same thing? Both of them hate being a part of the 6ish kingdoms just as much as the north.

    So all the starks wanted everyone to know that Jon Snow was the rightful heir, until it came time to tell everyone and make him king. Its like the Broken always knew he was going to be king since he has all the spoilers anyway.

    Sad sad ending for such a great series. The actual dagger shot and the dragon destroying that damned throne showed he was more than a dragon and were the two great (what added up to about a minute) pieces.

    My only question is where was Jon going?

    I thought the ending was perfectly good. A fair amount of fan service. Jon killing Dany was nicely surprising in execution. Jon going off with the wildlings is far better than Jon being stuck on a wall by himself.

    Of course the show could have spent more time building the story. But ultimately I think lots of fans would be angry no matter what. But the amount of nit picking about a show that has dragons, zombies, and shadow demons seems more than a little silly.

    IMO, every story arc makes sense, even if it wasn't the arc I personally wanted to see. That there were details that were incongruous at times really doesn't matter anymore than the way the show treated travel times. Either you accept the literary license or you don't.

    Nit picking is what we do best.

    So the red keep fell on the two. and they are under one layer of bricks. Shit like that pisses me off for some reason. The hand in plain sight. I liked what the scene was conveying but I see that and my mind say wait a god damn minute. Also only a bit of blood on them. Their heads would be caved in like they stole money from the mafia.

    I don't quite get why everyone is only blaming the writers when everyone also knows there was no reason to shorten the last two seasons except for not wanting to pay the actors for that many more episodes (hardly the writers' decision).

    So they could have added 3 more episodes for a dwarf to dig them out of an appropriate amount of rubble in order for us to see two mush faces that we couldn't recognize.

    Very exciting.

    HBO was throwing money at them to get more seasons. They would have paid the actors to keep this going.

    D&D forced the shortened seasons to end it quicker. They get to move on to Star Wars and their CSA show now.

    My guess. Because both Dorne or the Iron Islands had acquiesced to the Dragon Queens kingdom in advance. Harder to back out now? Also, neither saved the 6 other kingdoms against the white's, aside from those Iron Island guys with Bran at the tree, least that I'm aware of. Seemed like the other 6 kingdoms owed the North something. It was confusing to me Bran on the throne being from the North and yet not allowed to be their king? That's was a weird dynamic, especially since he was the last living male heir. Also, somehow got the feeling, Jon wasn't coming back to the wall, but who knows.
