I think you're right about Arya, but Jon Snow will get the big chair.

Arya killed the Night King, so I think it wold be bettersweet that Jon kills Dani, since he loves her and all, but now sees the real Dani

I started reading the series in the 1990's.  While GRRM is a good writer, his laziness in finishing left HBO in a hell of a bind.  I am a bit disappointed with what appears a sprint to the finish of what had been a carefully choreographed marathon.  I strongly expect that the rapidly escalating cost of production was the major factor in this change of pace.  Unfortunately, HBO has this habit, as their successful model is attracting subscribers with good content, but then cutting cost and ending series too early (Carnivale, Rome, Deadwood to name a few).

I’m betting that, in the books, the final battle will be against the Night King. Still holding out hope for Bran warg-ing into a Dragon. Lol

I didn’t read the first four books until after season one, and later DoD when it was released, and was impressed with how “true” season one had been to the first book. As the HBO seasons went on, they were less true to the books but that was understandable. The books are complex and long with many story lines happening at once. I agree with others that the problems with seasons 7 and 8 are a combination of not having GRRM’s books to rely on, as well as inexplicable (to me) decision to rush thru the final part of the story. Regardless, I consider the combined 8 seasons among the best television ever produced.

My thoughts FWIW. I thought this last episode was a good episode, but it has been a bad season all together. I agree the season has moved quickly and has been an overall let down. I will say this seems to happen with all shows once the characters and situations become played out.

I am glad they are ending it, but could have been executed (no pun intended) better.

I didn't watch the first 6 seasons on air, I started watching them on Blue ray. Then I switched to on air in season 7 and 8. I have to say, the first 4 or 5 seasons were very good, I thought they were well done and the cinematography in all seasons was top notch. However, I'm not a big fan of season 7 and especially not impressed with season 8. 

The disappointment, at least for me, is they spent literally 7+ seasons building up that "Winter is Coming" and the big showdown with the zombies, and then they ended it all in just one episode of fighting. Granted the battle scenes were impressive, but this entire final season feels very rushed and poorly executed. The plot turns involving multiple characters, Lannisters and Khaleesi namely, were also hastily and poorly explained as they "rushed" to close it out. It's like they got impatient, took over the script, and then skipped about 700 pages to get to the finale. I think they could easily have added another season to wind it down and tie up the loose ends.

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

 

yeah if john really doesn't want it i could see her taking it, i also think of Cerseis lame death as punishment to danny for going full on nuts

Soooo.....that was the worst episode of GoT I've ever seen. Total let down. Horrible writing. Too many jumps. Wow. Disappointed to say the least.

On a fluke I picked up a book in 1997 and got hooked.  22 years later this is my ending.  Horrible.  

I don’t think I saw a single cigar or pipe.  Right?

Not sure what y'all are smokin', I loved it! Rotten Tomatoes is high, or dumb, or both. The drama/acting/cinema teacher and I had a long conversation about this today, he agreed with me. People love to hate on things, especially on the internet. See Cohiba. A majority of the characters have reached their 'high point.' Do I agree with everything that happened, not necessarily, but I'm still watching it. Again, see Cohiba hate on the internet. 

I agree.  I have enjoyed the final season, even the finale tonight, and now I look forward to Martin’s conclusion in his books!

I have to say this season entirely has been a bit of a let down. I think the battle with the night king should’ve ended differently in terms of how easily he was killed and it should’ve been the end of the series. Cersi should’ve died at Jamie’s hand as sort of a mercy kill. Sorry way to kill the final villain. Except for Dany of course.

I will say I thought this last episode brought some closure though. A lot of people are upset John wasn’t king. But, He didn’t want it. He was sent to the wall. It looks like he left the wall and became a wildling. This brings us back to the first episode. Ned kills a man of the nights watch for deserting his post. John lived his whole life like Ned did. With honor. But that’s also what got Ned killed. John is doing something for himself for the first time in his life. And of course, bran knew this would happen.

I was let down by the season as whole, but it was mostly because everything was so rushed. There should have been more of a build up to Daenerys going crazy, more of a build up to Cersei's final moments, and Bran was just used as a plot device at random times, including the end. There were too many holes, too many jumps this season, and if they had built it up through two years I think they would have had time to fill those holes. The pace of the show quickened dramatically in the end and I think it suffered for it.

Total garbage...john kills the queen and the unsullied just capture him? come on...this was a completely half hearted effort to end the show...

The biggest hoe in the episode . He stabs her and walks? No one saw that and Drogon takes her away/How does anyone know she's dead. Too many sloppy holes, er, plot points more series can cone out of. Last season was a failure in my eyes. I'm not interested in spin offs. Tell ya what, though. That series Chernobyl is very good. I think HBO does the closed end episodic TV like no one else.

I was on the fence about this season until the last episode. The narrative wasn’t great and the execution left even more to be desired, but I felt like they still had room to move with the last episode and they just threw it away. I was annoyed with how short the season was at first, but honestly watching the last episode I thought it was far longer than it needed to be given what they did with it. They tried to hard to pull an unexpected game of thrones style ending but the twists were lazy, not built to (Dany’s Break) and often didn’t make any sense (bran on the throne)... and still fell victim to the cheesiness and sentimentality that the show initially eschewed so well and made it unique. Also where were the legions of unsullied and Dothraki hiding during the battle of winterfell?

I will agree that was a crazy ending.  I still enjoyed it I knew they were going to end it in a way to have spinoffs but they definitely made many unexpected plot decisions. Before the episode I found a 3D model for a flexi dragon so I decided to print it before the last episode.   The body is plain black PLA and the wings are shiny silk copper.1326467054_3dprintedflxidragon.thumb.jpg.bf4f6c7d9835e944bcd98384e7531f7f.jpg

main problem with this season it was to short, alot of what happens doesn't feel earned... this is what will happen if GRRM ever finishes his books, he gave them a outline of what is to come and how it ends and thats what this season felt like D&D wanted to get it over with so they can start work on their starwars deal and rake in all the cash it brings

i hate the people that want a new season because they didn't like the outcome, what they should be mad at is how rushed it was, you could say that really about every season since they passed the books, they probably got unfinished works to help them a bid longer but once D&D were on their own the show went to crap... watchable but still crap HBO should have force them to make a full season or brought in other writers if they were unwilling

I think Bran should of shown real strength and handed Jon Snow to the Unsullied for the good of the realm - real Game of Thrones style. But they went soft on the ending. Even Tyrion, at one point said ask me in 10 years! Spin off or reunion special here we come!

Very weak. Just confirms my suspicions that GRRM has been sandbagging and saving the better plots for his book.

ive not followed the books but when GoT first started i remember hearing they hoped he would finish the books in time... and correct me if im wrong but did he put out any books while GoT was on the air? ... i think he wanted to wait for them to finish knowing 1, he would get a fat pay check from HBO and all the royaltys it would bring (dvd sales, sales of old books ect..) and 2, once the show finished he knew it would be half assed and all the new fans the show brought feeling unsatisfied would rush out and buy the new unreleased books..

least thats what id do, why compete with your own ip let the show finish then come in and clean up

It’s really sad to see such a great series end so poorly. I feel like I’ll probably remember how big of a let down the last season was rather than how awesome it was leading up to the end. I haven’t read the books but I may have to start if the last one ever comes out just to hopefully get a real ending and some  closure
