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

    The finale left me pretty confused about Bran's intentions. Him saying "You were exactly where you needed to be" gave me the impression that he was manipulative, and the charracters were pawns in his game of chess, I don't know if the writers intended that or left this ambiguous at purpose or if this was just bad writing.

    Game of Thrones legacy

    The last season has damaged the legacy, due to it being too rushed. The ending might have worked out, if they took more time. The show will be remembered as good, but I don't think it will be cited among the best TV shows of all time. I'm unsure about the binging/rewatch value of the show. The contrast between the slow paced earlier seasons with lots of characters and different plots and the rushed later seasons (especially the final one) might be more noticeable for new viewers who binge watch one episode after another, than for the people who had to wait a year for each new season. Personally, I'm not interested in rewatching the show, because I find it too depressing knowing where most of the characters end up. It is not a journey that I would like to take again.

    So what happens to Drogon?

    He will fly off into the sunset? I think he will get an open ending. Aside from Drogon, I'm curious what will happen to the remaining Unsullied an Dothraki,

    Who liked sandor's ending.

    I have never cared for Cleganebowl and all the hype surrounding it, but I liked his ending. What I really loved though was Arya and Sandor's scene, this is the only moment that I can think of in which they nailed the bittersweet ending.

    Mourning Dany

    My favourite out of the main characters are Tyrion and Arya, but I do like Dany (liked her more than Jon for sure) , and I also feel sad, I did not wish for this fate for her. Looking back, there was forshadowing, but at the same time there was always some reflecting on how she is not like her father, so I guess it could have gone either way, and I was never in the "Dany as a villain" camp. I guess that it was also unexpected for me, because I was pretty convinced that the dead would be the final enemy, and the final big twist would have something to do with the WW.

    What will Jon do?

    It should be Jon. Arya has already killed Walder Frey, Littlefinger (together with Sansa, but she delivered the killing blow) and the NK. Plus, she hasn't even interacted with Daenerys.

    They did it.

    Since the love story was rushed too, it is not that big of a loss.

    What will Jon do?

    He will end up in the North with Ghost and Tormund.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Maybe this would work a bit better in the books since there might be more fleshed-out side characters left? On the show they killed off pretty much everyone, or put them on a bus (Edmure, Robin Arryn, Meera). So there are pretty much only the Stark children, Davos and Brienne left for the sweet part.

    Valonqars

    I thought that Jaime killing Cersei would have been the only satisfying conclusion to their story, so of course it didn't happen. This was one of the things regarding the ending I have always looked forward to, and I think that acting-wise NCW and LH could have pulled it off.

    Protagonist suddenly goes crazy in last chapter of epic

    I don't like to speculate on the books anymore, since I think that they will remain unfinished, and there are a lot of characters that the show has omitted. However I'm pretty sure that Mad Daenerys is GRRM's final twist, I don't think the show made this up. Personally I don't like the Dany as villain storyline, and I am pretty disappointed. But I do think that if he finishes the books, Daenerys' descent will be explained and executed better in the books than on the show, I have always believed in the bittersweet ending, this conclusion is too bitter for me. Normally I have no problem reading tragic and nihilistic stories, but for ASOIAF I did expect a different kind of ending, Hats off to all the people who had the theory that Daenerys would go mad, you had a better understanding of where this story was going than I did all along. I did not expect it at all, and thought the Mad Queen Dany theory was bullshit until I read the leaks.
  12. This is one of my big gripes with this episode. I don't know how they can believe that people would not value the direwolves scenes, especially a Ghost farewell scene. People are creating a ton of memes of Jon not saying proper goodbye, I think even casual viewers would notice that this scene was very anticlimatic. Even if they would like to appeal to the masses, come on, of course the general public would have loved an emotional scene with the loyal direwolf, I have zero doubt about that. Instead they gave screentime to high school drinking games. In the first season they had a much lower budget and included scenes like Summer saving Bran. If the CGI was the problem then I would have been fine with them using actual wolf dogs. Even if they look less impressive, and Ghost would not have red eyes, the cast could have interacted better with them, and they could have shown their bond better.

    Season 8: News, Spoilers And Leaks

    Wait, what, this is what they are going for ? I don't think this makes sense. What was his big dramatic scene last season in which he left Cersei behind for then? Jaime and Cersei are like a parody of an off-again on-again teenage couple now.

    Discussing Jaime and Brienne

    I don't know what the showrunners were going for. If it turns out that Jaime is on a suicide mission to kill Cersei, then I guess that it was alright that he wanted one last night with Brienne before he dies. But the way this was handled gives the impression that Jaime after sex was like: Nope, this is not enough, it is still Cersei for me, we are both awful people and belong together, and this indeed pretty awkward and I feel sorry for Brienne, and would have prefered for them to part as friends.
