  1. I just realized I wrote episode 8! My bad! Edited for clarity
  2. Speaking of the dragon, this is his review of episode 6.

    Ask D&D

    Ah, finally someone who understands us! Yes, yes, Drogon is super intelligent, we're so happy that you were able to pick up on that. Drogon is a semi-god. He can do anything. A dragon in the machine if you will. How was Cersei able to become ruling queen even though her last son died? Why didn't we get to see how the people of King's Landing reacted to her ascension to the throne? Were there rebellions? Or was the people happy with the arrangement? Even if her power depended on the strength of the Lannister army, shouldn't there have been some among them who would prefer to support Jamie over her, just on the basis of him being male (and not having blown up the sept) and plot to put him in power?

    The character assassination of Daenerys

    Or did she just go mad? Was she mad all along, it just took this long for someone to notice? Who knows.

    Ask D&D

    What do you mean? Bran did did lots of important stuff. You could see in his expression that he was being extremely powerful and using his abilities to change outcomes over and over. It's all in there. It's not our fault that the audience didn't manage to perceive and interpret the nuances of the look in his eyes. Watch the episodes again and you'll realize how brilliant it all was. Question:

    Dany: Since powerful magic has warped time and space, as evidenced by many people's newfound ability to teleport, Drogon will not reach Volantis. Instead he continues east until he reaches Aman or the Undying Lands where he meets Frodo and the elves who travelled west from Middle Earth. Galadriel resurrects Dany. Arya: Upon reaching the Seven Isles Arya will meet prince Caspian who travelled east from Narnia. She may or may not marry him, we have yet to decide. It depends on whether the spin off series about Arya is going to be a children's series or a darker tale. Questions yet left unanswered:

    The character assassination of Daenerys

    +1 Not just the show, but many movies too. Sometimes it feels like editors are an unknown phenomenon in the script writing world... No book editor would have let the scripts of the late seasons of GoT be published without extensive rewrites I'm sure.

    The character assassination of Daenerys

    It wasn't a good story though. A series of random events just isn't a good story.

    (Bronn! I forgot about Bronn! Well, that explains why he's still alive in season 8. They needed at least one person to mingle with prostitutes...)

    Bran forgot to drink his Starbucks(tm) coffee which he depends on every morning, or his brain becomes mushy. Why were there so many scenes with prostitutes in the first seasons, and none in season 8?

    Dany the Mad Queen was a terrible idea

    In my humble opinion, the moment Tyrion had to give a long speech to explain to the viewers what had transpired and how we're supposed to feel about it was when I realized that this show is no longer about anything at all.

    Dany the Mad Queen was a terrible idea

    Well, I guess it was a good idea if the only thought behind it was to create a stereotypical arch villain for the endgame that the audience didn't expect. It was a terrible idea if they wanted to tell a story with fantasy ingredients that still feels like it's all about real people, and not stereotypes.

    How would you have ended it?

    These are very good. (Although I'd prefer a different ending for Dany.) Rewriting the end of Game of Thrones, two parts.

    How would you have ended it?

    I like your version very much. I've read other versions too, and come up with several of my own. The one change I'd really like to see, because it feels like more in line with Dany's character, is whether she murders unscrupulously or whether changed to only kill innocents locked up in the Red Keep, she still feels remorse afterwards. In her vision, she doesn't touch the Iron Throne, instead she turns her back on it. I would like her to do this in the end. She gives no speech to her troops about conquering the world. When Jon enters the room, she is emotional. She tells him that she intends to leave. He hugs her, and she orders her dragon to burn the iron throne. To get the same ending, she could then walk out on the top of the stairs to give her final orders to her troops. But someone throws a knife into her back, and she falls over. The assassin runs away, and is later revealed to be Arya. (Earlier in the season, Jon would have had to be the one to kill the night king to give Jon something to do this season.) Drogon picks up Dany's body and flies away, enabling a Revan-type of story like you mention. Jon goes north willingly after naming Bran his successor.
