  1. I know this will be wildly unpopular and I don’t know if anyone will even read it, but after a week of reflection, I have decided that this episode was my favorite perhaps of the entire series. And I know all the reasons why it shouldn’t be. (It ruined many storylines and prophesies, the battle plan was dumb, all the mains lived despite insurmountable odds, Sam lived while lying down and crying, I could go on and on.) But, this brought the climax of the WWs, which was amazing. It had awesome effects. It had Dany and Jon on dragons fighting the NK. It had badass moments for Melisandre, Dothraki flaming swords, Theon’s heroic end, Jorah dying for Dany, Arya saved the world. The music was epic. I felt genuine emotions during the episode. I was rooting for it like I was watching my favorite sports team. Literally on the edge of my seat. I never felt those things while watching GOT before that episode and definitely not after. What episode was your favorite?

    How would you have ended it?

    I would have loved a dark ending. Either have the White Walker conquer mankind and destroy humanity or reveal that whoever is left ruling is an uncover WW. Like have Bran sitting on the new throne and his eyes all of a sudden his eyes go blue. Roll the credits.

    The Ending Was very conventional

    There is much I hated about the way the show ended. The worst of it, IMHO, was 3 eyed raven being king and Arya turning into Magellan. But, I can deal with all of that if they would have just given us one more twist at the end. After Daenerys died, it was just so boring. I would have loved if Jon and Tormund found some evidence of surviving WWs at the end, or to have seen Bran giving an evil laugh with blue eyes or watching Drogon circling back around to torch the small council or any other number of things to remind everyone this isn’t a happily ever after.

    Were you expecting something different?

    Exactly! After Jon killed Dany, I really didn’t care about the rest. I would have rather just had a text scroll of what became of the survivors fate than that dumb shit that took up half the show.

    So...what was the final WTF moment ?

    Has to be Jon killing Dany.

    Now that is Over - Let's rank best and worst!

    I won’t make a top and bottom 5, but I’ll point out some favorite things and not so good things. Loved the casting for several characters probably Tyrion was the most important role to cast properly. I can’t imagine anyone else. And if they got a bad Tyrion, the show would not have worked. I also thought Cersei was excellent. Joffrey, The Hound, Melisandre, Sam, Jaime, and I’m sure more that I left out. On the flip side, there were some casting decisions I wasn’t as happy with. Jon was the biggest one. Also Rob, Littlefinger, Stannis, and Bran. Loved the buildup, the character and story development. Loved learning the history and lore of Westeros. Hated the end. All the buildup for not much payoff. All the foreshadowing and then it just fell flat at the end. Loved the costumes and the banners and the castles, horses, dragons, White Walkers. It all felt genuine. Never felt cartoonish or ridiculous. Loved the twists. Ned’s death, Red wedding, Purple wedding, Hodor, Viper death match Too much more to list. I could go on forever

    Arya the Explorer

    Totally out of left field. D U M B dumb.
  8. I’m 100% with you on Bran being the king. It feels completely wrong. He’s supposed to be some kind of magical inhuman creature. Definitely not the King of the SIX Kingdoms. What happened to the part about the Night King and 3eyed raven being in a multi century long feud? Everything about Bran is wrong. It’s stupid.

    Your favorite individual acting performance

    In the series or just this episode? Clarke and Dinklage stole this episode. But, Heady gets the win for the series, IMHO.

    I really like what Drogon did but...

    Why can’t Drogon know about Dany’s throne obsession? He’s been with her literally his entire life and it’s all she ever talks about. Just because the dragon can’t speak doesn’t mean he doesn’t understand words.
  11. I would much have preferred to spend more time developing the fall of Dany and Jon’s decision to assassinate her than the extended epilogue after her death. It all felt very anticlimactic. It went out with a whimper instead of a roar. I really would rather not know what happened to all the other characters than know that they had an ending that everyone hates.

    Did Bran know all the time he is the future king?

    How about this? No, Bran cannot see the future. However, Bran from the future goes back and changes the past (what we are experiencing as the present) to change events for the better.

    The vision in House of the Undying was real

    Very inconsistent with visions and prophecies. No valanqor. Who was the third head of the dragon? PTWP?

    Jon & Drogon

    Lol. Make up your damn mind. Now, you’ve got me questioning it, too. I liked your first point. And now I like the second point, too. But, Drogon could have known what needed to be done and then still been upset when it actually went down. Reality set in.

    Daenerys’s death should have been the end

    I guess it’s in the eye of the beholder. Because this story, the song of Ice and Fire, for me was about Jon and Daenerys.
  16. Greenmonsterff

    Jon & Drogon

    That’s a brilliant observation. Hadn’t occurred to me. But, I think you are right. He looked Jon in the eye and then let him do what needed to be done.

    Arya is Azor Ahai

    I was hoping when Tyrion found Cersei that somehow Jaime’s hand would be around her throat.
  18. Sam should have been Lord Tarley. His ending makes no sense. All of the story about Gilley is just wasted now. Very disappointing.

    Your predictions vs what actually happened

    I predicted Jon killing Dany. I also predicted Jon would be King. Predicted Arya would go East, not West and become an assassin. Those are really all that I cared enough about to predict. One out of three is a decent batting average. Basically, all of the other endings for characters I didn’t predict and was pretty, pretty, pretty disappointed with, except for Sansa and Brienne. And some of them felt like they came out of left field. Sam should not have been Grand Maester. Bronn should not have been master of coin. And worst of all, Bran as King just seems stupid as fuck. Why would future tree man be King?
  20. OP should work for a political campaign. You can spin things well, dear sir.

    Game of Thrones legacy

    It was a great series. This episode, IMHO, was a solid two thumbs down. And the last season was pretty, pretty, pretty underwhelming. But, that doesn’t ruin the series. If it were a true shitshow, nobody would be here discussing it in the wee hours of the morning. I think GOT is easily my favorite television show ever.
  22. Except he’s a terrible choice for king. He’s not even Bran anymore. He’s the 3 eyed raven. Is he even a human? I thought he was a magical creature who would merge with a tree one day. I would rather have had Edmure.

    Use one word to describe the series finale.

    Disappointing

    Jon & Drogon

    Drogon was smart. He knew that the throne got Dany killed.

    Praise without Repercussion, Final Edition

    There were some great shots of Drogon and Dany before and during her victory speech. When we first see Dany approach with Drogon’s wings spread out to look like Dany had wings was one of the coolest visuals I’ve seen on the show.
