    Use one word to describe the series finale.

    Kit Harrington nailed it: Disappointing

    The aftermatch of the decision made by D&D

    The reason they shortened the season is because they’re incapable of any basic plotting where they don’t have source material to adapt directly. They figured that the more episodes there were, the sooner people would realize that the emperor had no clothes. While this way they rocketed to the finish so fast that even when people could see how everything was falling apart they felt compelled to stick around for the finish. Did being rushed cause them to invent the wight hunt? Did it cause them to have Daenerys intentionally burn random civilians before attacking the Red Keep? Did it cause the dragons to be sitting ducks for Euron one episode and invincible the next? Did it cause Jaime to reverse his entire character arc so that he could die with Cersei with no explanation given? No. That was all on their inability to write a coherent story. The more episodes they had, the more exposed they would have been.
  3. The Dothraki respect strength above all else. A defeated Khal garners no respect. An all-magical, all powerful, leader is obviously gonna be followed, especially when every other possible powerful leader has already been killed and the choice is chaos or following the magical Mother of Dragons who wants to be the Khaleesi who conquers the world.
  4. People who didn't like the last scene are capital H HATERSZZZZ!!!!!! You don't fuck with the Stormborn, the Queen of the Andals, the Mother of Dragons, and the UNBURNT! The Khals didn't know who they were fucking with threatening to gang-rape someone who was actually worlds more powerful than them and they got burned alive for their troubles. The fact that Daenerys finds the practical way out of a situation looking at the larger consequences rather than trying to be Ned Stark type honorable is one of the best features of her character and why she's the greatest heroine in the history of fiction. Of course she'll burn the Khals alive to save the world with complete confidence that her plan will work as it was destined to. Really thought the whole episode was pretty good. Not great, but a vast improvement on the rest of the season. A very strong 8/10, possibly even a weak 9/10.
