Squire (4/8)

  1. Looks like somebody else had the same idea. It's now my official ending.
  2. Probably, all around Jon was pretty disgustingly weak this season - I sincerely hope nobody views him positively or finds inspiration in his failures.
  3. I think I would add to my story.. - When sacking Kings Landing Jon would be wearing his fathers banner and houses armor(would need to argue that Dany found some). - In the final speech Dany gives at a podium after the take over he stands beside her wearing it, she ends with saying the murders of the Targaryens and Starks have been brought to justice and the rightful heir to the throne has returned. She and him would raise a sword jointly and kiss..... I also would give her armor, I'm not sure why she never wore any - would go with black leather/chainmail like Aegons wives. (When ever I think of what could have been I feel thoroughly subverted.)
  4. I am surprisingly OK with this. But I always took Dany as a bit of sub at heart forced to take an alpha role for the betterment of the world as the men around her continually failed.
  5. I realised there is sufficient footage for a dark-Dany/Jon ending without much editing. Cut the scene to black right when he kisses her and then provide an epilogue with drawings. Have them marry and go on a campaign of conquest where they both die heroically in a battle in some foreign land against another WW like threat as dark knights...hated for their actions but ultimately heros of both Westeros and Essos Then end with a picture of the final counsel talking about a successor. That's another ending I can get behind :D.
  6. Any mass social change generally has death as part of it and on average the people she killed were wholly deserving of it. I'm not sure why her killing people is even considered remotely bad when considering how rulers have always ruled(in the show and IRL). The only questionable one was Kings Landing but...special circumstances.
  7. I don't think any of the actors actually believe in Danys ending. Like they are trying to save face but they know it's garbage. Most of the people I know enjoyed watching Cersei and the Lannisters be decimated - it wasn't something they were horrified at. The hamfisted attempt to make the Dany=Hitler=Bad connection nobody believes and pretty much everyone finds Jon stabbing her during the kiss completely revolting. After the history that has been built up, kings landing just doesn't get much or any sympathy(nor should it). What ever D&D was trying to pull, they failed at it for most of the people I know. The only way this could have been received without outrage is if Dany was about to launch an attack on the North(which we didn't get other than speech which hinted at the possibility and no time-table) and Jon can't talk her out of it, even the whole assassin stunt he does still doesn't work.
  8. As far as I know only D&D controlled the script, obviously nobody else is to blame except perhaps martin. I can respect the actors performances along with the rest of the crew while viewing the season itself as an insult towards the viewers.
  9. I think Jon being half Targaryen and half Stark is critical for Daenerys to be willing to have him be King and treat him equal to her. In some sense to her it would be like Daenerys ancestors where Aegon and his two sisters/wives unified Westeros. Thus I think the reveal that Jon is Aegon would be positive for the development of the relationship and plot, allowing for an equal marriage which perhaps didn't exist before and providing that stability and counsel Dany needs in an actually loyal person. - Anyway I strongly like the theme of becoming more than what you are, riding the dragon so to speak... Jons ascension to me(like Aragorn in LOTR) is kind of providing a modal of an idealized life in so far as him choosing to become what he should be but I appreciate other endings where Dany and Jon leave together or basically anything where she's not murdered by him.
  10. That's a really nice ending also, one which completes Jamies arc of redemption and is more fitting as a character. The show treated Cersei too nicely, I don't think she ever acted in the interest of anyone but herself(I suppose her family) yet her death is not tragic and ultimately she died getting what she wanted(being with Jamie).
  11. That would have been good to, particularly for ending it the same way without Jon being bad. I agree that Jon should have died. I think he should have killed himself at the same time as Daenerys(murder/suicide - including some words about him failing her) instead of Drogon doing it to emphasized his loss in her death but your ending makes sense unlike the shows.
  12. I didn't see a thread on this so I thought I would make one: If you were the writer - how would you write episode 6 as an end to the series(no restrictions)? Additionally if you could change episode 5 what would you change? -- I would end it "badly"(but very personally satisfying!) in the following ways(I'm sure they could be improved but you get the idea). - Daenerys will argue that the wheel can only be broken with an iron fist and after the Night King and her loses to Cersei she decided she can no longer afford mercy or a divided, bickering kingdom thus she used Kings Landing as an example to instill fear(this might require tweaking episode 5 a little to show a more precise but equally ruthless campaign with Daenerys directly flying to Red Keep and killing Cersei). She wouldn't be "mad". - Thinking back to the wars that followed the beginning of the series, Jon will not like but he will ultimately accept Daenerys explanation with the agreement it shouldn't happen again taking responsibility as Daenerys guide instead of being the passive actor he was in the past. He lets go of his apprehension about being with his aunt. - With Daenerys help Jon accepts his heritage as both a Targaryen and a Stark and claims himself as King which Daenerys accepts as his queen. With this the rest of Westeros rallies behind them ending mass conflict. - Jons cold restraint moderates Daenerys fiery idealism leading to improvements in Westeros without the degree of social breakdown seen in Essos. - Bran acts as his counsel(lets suppose Bran isn't all powerful like they attempt to portray). - Sansa maintains her position as Queen of the North disliking but accepting Daenerys. - Arya goes and does what ever. - Tyrion will have been exiled for releasing his brother instead of being roasted as Daenerys understands his love for family drove him, a love she didn't truly experience until now. - The Unsullied maintain guard in Kings Landing while the Dothraki are sent home, being freed from any duty to their Khaleesi. - Fast-forward 2-3 years: Daenerys ends up pregnant but dies in successful child birth in Kings Landing. Drogon learns how to reproduce and Ghost and his sister Nymeria produce a litter of puppies. - The final shot ends with flapping wings shown coming out of Valyria towards both Westeros and Essos --- Cheesy I suppose but this is the ending a lot of people wanted(and thus their expectations had to be subverted). While not the shows intention I always viewed the Night King as one of many future threats that only a united continent could fight against, thus Daenerys being a bit like a female Revan. The Three Eyed Raven plot gave Bran too much power - not sure what to do about that.
  13. A strong, 'ai dunt wunt eht' out of 10.
  14. It's clear the writers wanted to give a middle finger to a lot of us and be done with the show. Two years and this is the best they could do? Independent of the garbage writing and inconsistent character actions having only 6 episodes was absurd.
