    A bad ending leaves a bad legacy. I don't hear anyone talking about it anymore. They killed the story and the love people had for it with such an awful final season.

    Show only (no book spoilers): Stannis wins at Winterfell

    I can't fully remember the show arcs but Jon would have stayed at the wall. Stannis would have secured the North but very unlikely he would have had the resources to move South. Dany would have to take Dragonstone from Stannis troops, easy with Dragons but she would know she has an enemy in the North that's not from the North. With Winter approaching in it will be very difficult to take the North. She wouldn't meet Jon, thats for sure. No dragon for the WW either so the wall wouldn't fall. Who knows what happens to the Army of the Dead then but it would give the North a LONG time to prepare. Sansa would probably be crowned, maybe a chance of Jon. Winter would set in heavily. The whole story kind of falls apart without Stannis losing and dying. Dany would harass the Southern Kingdoms until eventually taking King's Landing but the North and WW are a mystery.

    The Dothraki that Daenerys brought into Westeros

    Don't forget they were turned into capable rulers of King's Landing while Tyrion and Jon were locked up.

    The Dothraki that Daenerys brought into Westeros

    Most did. Then after the battle Dany generated more and then once she took King's Landing she had the resources to generate more. Realism goes out the window when the show just pulls troops out of thin air. There is no way Dothraki would stay in King's Landing, with no leader they would have left the city to pillage the surrounding countryside for a long time.
  5. People on this forum used to reference an interview where they said they really wanted to do the Red Wedding, that was their ultimate goal for the show to make it that far. Honestly after that point the show does start to decline.
  6. "the first time we see Stannis he is burning people" No he was burning wooden idols. These guys don't even know their own show. Whats the quote where they say Sam is the younger brother?

    Deleted scenes / Any hope for a extended edition?

    Did I read that there was hours upon hours of deleted footage? "I can have you returned to the dirt this afternoon" Love it!

    Master thread on what the Show means for the book plot

    I don't like Bran becoming king but if that was what George planned for the ending I don't see it drastically changing. He's hardly going to mix it up now and put Stannis on the throne instead. Arya going west in the show was out of nowhere with zero build up which makes me think thats also how her story ends. Sansa being QITN also makes sense in terms of her story but I wonder how she will get there with Winter closing in. Tyrion being hand of the king is believable because someone has to have a typical ending. Dany going mad was so abrupt in the show it makes sense that it will happen in the books. I can see all these things happening but with actual build up and execution.

    Master thread on what the Show means for the book plot

    Ha I mean character wise, not logistically. The show made it look like awful fanfic with Tyrion just nominating Bran and nobody speaking up despite Dorne and the Iron Islands being present. How does Bran go from being thought dead by the North, living in a cave to sitting on the Iron Throne ruling Westeros. He was mostly useless in the show but they just sat him on the throne. It could take 3-4 more books to tie up this story into that ending. Yeah a lot of denial here but thats ok, we were given a hamfisted ending with very poor execution, its only right to question what will be in the books and what won't be. Issac has just confirmed it as George's idea. It's the same with Shireen being burned. We know it happens way later in the story and under much different circumstances. If D & D were doing their own ending there is no way Bran would have survived the White Walker encounter at the cave. It makes a lot of sense why the books have taken so long. How does George getting Dany from Essos to Westeros with her going mad and dying at the end. That alone is a whole book. No add in Bran becoming King. The Long Night. The list grows and grows.

    How in the world does Bran get from the cave to the Iron Throne in the books. I can't see how you could realistically do that. Why would anyone follow him at that stage, let alone make him the King of Westeros. There's no logical reason Dorne, Iron Islands, Westerlands, Stormlands etc would declare for him. That's killed a lot of my enthusiasm for the books now.
  11. This blows my mind how the show is only getting widespread criticism now. Most of the problems existed way back in earlier seasons.

    The argument of D&D was too focused on Star Wars

    They would have known for a long time before announcement. These things take years of pre-planning. They were getting bored of the show by S6 and wanted to really start tying it up. The Sept of Baelor and Dany just up and leaving Mereen is a clear indication of that

    How people's reaction to this season affects grrm?

    He had 10-11 years to finish the story when he signed off the TV show. ADWD came out the summer Season 1 ended in 2011. Since then he completely squandered his time, getting into a panic around S5 knowing the show was heading towards the finish line before him. He set some deadlines and completely missed them. Now it's 2019 and the last episode of GOT airs tomorrow night, concluding A song of Ice and Fire. His story that he hasn't got to even tell himself. The backlash from fans has been growing more and more the last few years. Its going to reach a boiling point and he will just throw his hands up and say screw it. Not like there was a chance of A Dream of Spring every being released since he hasn't even started it. On top of that fans disliking the ending? Thats not going to go down well but at least it will make sense in the books. We don't know how much is just fan-fiction which so much of GOT has become. If you saw the episode of Brienne fighting the Hound, Jon going to Hardhome and Littlefinger marrying Sansa to Ramsey would you believe it happens in the books?

    Rant & Rave without Repercussion: Burn It All Edition

    Look at it this way. - In the show Sansa marries Ramsey. In the book its a fake Arya. Its the same plot but would be ridiculous to happen in the books. - We know Jon going to Hardhome, Brienne vs The Hound, Theon going to Mereen, Beric alive and heading North, The Night King, Mance Rayder actually being burnt etc are all show inventions. We can assume the majority of S7 and 8 is D & D's own writing bar the major plot points. - Stannis obviously doesn't burn Shireen before Winterfell because George said he hadn't even wrote that chapter at the time of screening and we know he has already finished the Battle of Ice. For book Stannis to do that there will have to be a huge build up and an almost apocalyptic end of the world scenario where he is forced to do it. We know it will be way into TWOW and possibly the next book. - We don't know what happens after Cersei's trial but what if she just replaced Aegon on the show and that's who Dany fights at King\s landing. You could make a bullet point list of the two final seasons and it will match up to the books but with the wrong characters. To me thats a completely different story.

    Protagonist suddenly goes crazy in last chapter of epic

    Stannis is bad because Renly jumped the line of succession and left orders to kill Stannis and his men in the morning. There has always been a huge denial on this forum when it comes to Daenerys.
