  1. Late to the Game

    What about the Dothraki?

    It would have been better to have them all wiped out in Winterfell (as it visually appeared during the battle). Having them reappear and then later regenerate took away that "holy shit" moment, and they really added nothing to the story from then on.

    How would you have ended it?

    For the most part, I'm OK with where everyone landed but more episodes could have fleshed the story out much better. A few tweaks, though: Cut out the Jaime-sleeps-with Brienne story. OK with Jaime and Cersie dying together, but make the set for the 'discovery' of the bodies more believable. Kill Bronn several episodes ago. Make Sam the Lord of Hornhill with Gilly and the kids. Let all the Dothraki remain dead after running into the AotD, as it visually appeared. It would have made that more of a 'holy crap' moment, and they added nothing to the story from then on. Have Jon and Greyworm fight to the death after Dany is killed, with Jon winning. Unsullied exit back to Essos. Have a big reveal of Jon's bloodline to the VIP's of Westeros. Discussion ensues on whether he should be King, or Arya (since they would all be dead if not for her killing the NK). Jon either reluctantly accepts the throne (with Arya and Bran on his council), or willingly goes North to start a new life. OK with the North being independent, after all - they fought the AofD while Dorne and Iron Islands sat home on their butts. And if not for a Northerner (Arya), everyone in Westeros would be dead.

    Jon killing Dany doesn’t work for me

    If Dany cared about Jon she would never have tried to prevent him from revealing his true blood line, regardless of whether he wanted the throne or not. He had suffered his entire life under the 'bastard' label and had every right to claim his heritage as a legitimate Stark/Targaryen.
  5. Hope they didn't pull a muscle with all this reaching.
  6. The only thing I can come up with on Greyworm is that he was trained from an early age to be an automaton who follows orders without question or application of independent logic. The latest example was after the KL battle when he continued slaughtering defeated/surrendered Lannister soldiers based on 'orders'. Once Dany was dead, and in the absence of anyone new to give orders (such as to kill Jon), Greyworm was in a bit of a holding pattern. It would also explain why he seemed OK-ish with allowing a king to be selected to ultimately decide the fate of Jon and Tyrion. At the end of the day, Greyworm was more comfortable with others making decisions/issuing orders. I know it's weak, but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  7. I assumed all the attendees wanted to negotiate for the release/sparing of the life of Jon and possibly Tyrion (with the exception of Yara, apparently). After all, Dany was planning to "liberate" the rest of Westeros in the same way she did Kings Landing and Jon/Tyrion stopped her. The whole "fairness" argument applies to the choosing of the king, which came up almost as an afterthought during the meeting.
  8. I agree that this scene was ridiculous. But its purpose was to negotiate with Grey Worm for the fate of Tyrion AND Jon. (Recall that Sansa complained that Jon wasn't also brought as requested). So it makes sense that the Starks and other Jon-centric parties were there at the council in force.

    The "council" was simply a rubber stamp

    Why are we assuming the purpose of the council was to choose a new king/queen? The concept wasn't even introduced until Tyrion told Grey Worm he didn't get to decide what became of Jon. And everyone acted like the thought had never occurred to them.

    Bran Truly Was The Best Possible Choice To Rule

    Not only that, but I don't even think the original purpose of the dragon pit council was to select a king/queen. It was apparently just to decide the fate of Tyrion and Jon (who they had also requested be brought there). It was only when Tyrion said 'the king (or queen) should decide' that the hasty discussion/decision occurred.
