Game of Thrones fans... do you agree with this...?

Recommended Posts

As stated in another thread, I'm not a fan (yet?), just a curious onlooker at this stage... I may binge watch the entire show at some point.

Anyhow, I saw this on my Insta feed yesterday... I'm interested to know what genuine GoT addicts have as their assessment thus far. Agree/Disagree? Will it salvage itself in later episodes?

Pretty much my thoughts:

From the very beginning I’ve watched each season/episode. In anticipation of this last season starting in January I rewatched all of the 60+ episodes. I liked it even more the second time around. Just like cigars some are better than others but overall it is a great series and and off cigar would never cause me to stop smoking CC’s!

Agreed. Last nights episode; so weak. How does the queen just die in a bunch of rocks ? All the abuse she gave she surely deserved to have been killed in a much more sinister way. At minimum her head sliced off for all to witness maybe. As it is seems to be setting up for John snow to become the king and denerius to be killed at the doorstep of her dream to become the lone ruler. So it is as a series ends usually bad.

The last two seasons for me have been bad. It seems to me that everyone wanted to be done and move on to other things. This caused the show to lose everything that made it great and turned it into a typical action movie / show. It would have been much better had they took the last two years of material and stretched it our to four or five, and added back in all the plot twists and surprises I came to love about the show. 

More than anything, it makes me crave the last couple books even more. At least then I’ll get a satisfying end to one of the best stories ever written. Hopefully.

I mean honestly I can't remember the last time I was satisfied with a series ending though.

The first few episodes of the season were excellent.  Then it was like someone went "oh crap we have 2 seasons of plot progression to slapdick together bc were ending this show early for no good reason"

 

There should be 3 or 4 episodes left and there's 1.  A total disservice to a once great show. 

 

And on top of that Tyrion, my favorite character, wound up being a feckless idealistic dolt.  Such a shame.

It seems as season 8 has been rushed & they didn't spend enough time to build the character/story progression. They could have made 8 a full season & even made a 9th.

I agree with the general sentiment here...the series has been on a downward spiral going on three years...ever since they had to start telewarping characters (with the exception of the whites walkers who were handicapped by apparent governors on their accelerators) all over westeros in order to advance the story to its rushed end...and this ending we are seeing on the show might explain why the books cant be written...the author hasnt quite figured out how to put it to rest...I was expecting a lot more.

They missed a lot with the past season. It’s stopped being a game of thrones show and became a fan pleaser...until last night. I loved Dany’s dark turn. Did they execute it well? Hell no. But it’s so GRRM in that there are no absolute heros, and power is absolutely corrupting. I so wish the night king story line had more punch. They could have done so much more, like him splintering off a smaller force to attack winterfell and attacking Kings Landing with the bulk of his army. That would have been far more tactical and in line with how previous wars were fought...a la Robb Stark at the battle of the whispering wood

After the books ran out and the writers had to come up with their own material it all went to shit. Although I personally think HBO has a pattern of doing this to shows. Amazing until the end, then things go off the rails. 

They have a saying where I’m from. “HBO has zero endgame”

IMO, its probably 1-2 seasons too long.  similar to The Walking Dead.

Having said that, its still one of my favourite shows of all time.

I have enjoyed this season.  The battle scenes have been fantastic!

But I do agree that what appears to be Cersei's death was lame.  :cowpoop:

Also, if the Red Keep is destroyed, where is the Iron Throne? Just a thought.  :confused:

Hoping that Arya will kill Danerys and Jon will be forced to take the throne.  :ph34r:

I loved it, I agree if Cersei is dead that was weak as shit....she deserved such a more violent death.

I see Jon killing Danerys over that shit she pulled.

Nobody can really tell me that was good writing. Two weeks ago she flew over the Iron Fleet and they downed her second dragon and she just whimpered away. No retaliation. No plan of any kind. It was ass. Everyone is left asking why didn't she fly around and burn the ships. That thing can fly faster than they can turn those dumb arrow launchers. 

Fast forward to this past Sunday and she's BBQ'ing everybody and their mother. Only one dragon left but she's awesome this week and burns the city down even after they surrender. I mean, wtf are these writers thinking? I agree with some of the opinions above too. Cersei caused so much pain and anguish and we're left to imagine she died under a pile of rocks with her incestuous brother. Did they write this ending in crayons?

John continues to confirm one thing.... He's weak! He's never been a King and he might end up on the iron thrown by default but not cause he's worthy. Sansa is more of a King than John will ever be, and I don't like her either. Arya is the ballsiest Stark and not just cause she killed the night King. Bran Stark is the coolest of the Starks.

Having not read the books, I have no expectations to be ruined.  The show has been fascinating from the start.  I do think some things are being rushed to wrap it up.  Cersei not getting a heinous death is a bit of a letdown.  She and Jamie dying in each others' arms is a bit poetic (and cringey).  The goodbye scene between Jamie and Tyrion was good.  And Danny's 180 "heel turn" is definitely rushed.  IMO, this season needed 10 episodes at least to wrap things up.  Nonetheless, I have enjoyed it.  Hopefully, it will end better than turds like Lost and Dexter.

the casual fans hated it because they were to stupid to pickup on the clues that danny is nuts, they have been hinting at it since literally the first episode but her crazy has always been masked because it was aimed at mostly bad people so they excused it.... i agree it was rather dramatic but you can thank D&D for that they want to end this show as quick as possible to get that starwars money, anyone else think it was odd this season is only 6 episodes? they should of at least used a few more eps to show her total decent into full madness, the books will be much better once or should i say if they ever finish.... you know before he dies 😐

D&D got a list of the major plot points and thats all they are filming with zero depth or subtlety, they are just going down a list and checking each of them off, its still a good show but just expect that

and NOTHING will have as bad of a last season as dexter lol

I do agree, Cersei's death was too weak for all the shit she's done and for as ruthless as they made her out to be. That was weak. I wanted to see her get torched by Drogon. Dany has gone completely mad, much like her father the Mad King.......

I’m enjoying the season so far, but I would agree that it is not as good as it has been. Lots of holes, which I expect is due to rushing the series to a conclusion.

Cersei's death along with Jaime was perfect. The shows main love story has always been about the two of them. The things we do for love? Now he died to be with her at the end. The final episode should be epic. We were all hoping Dany would keep it together but it certainly made it more interesting that she didn't. So who will sit on the throne? I think we are in for a surprise.

Arya is going to kill Danerys.  Sansa will be on the Iron Throne

I hope Arya kills Daenerys too, but I don't think there will be a united 7 kingdoms. Nobody left with a claim seems to care and Kings Landing will take decades to rebuild.

Except maybe Bronn just walks into a deserted Kings Landing and starts ruling? ha
