    Game of Thrones will go down as one of the biggest, most exciting shows of all time. . . with an absolutely terrible, no good, very bad season finale. Seriously, we know fans always like to find something to complain about and the bigger a franchise is the more dissenters are going to show up out of the woodwork to voice their opinions. But we’re going to go over everything wrong with the final episode of season eight because it really was that bad. This isn’t a mere case of us not getting the exact ending we wanted and complaining about it because we have a RUclip channel and we can do this.
    Let’s talk about some of the major players who didn’t even make it to the final episode. Not only did we not get sweet, sweet, revenge on Cersei Lannister but we said goodbye to her way too soon. Same with the character arc of Jaime Lannister, the entire Lord of Light prophecy, and pretty much everything else which had been built up over the previous episodes. We learned that Jon Snow still knows nothing despite going through so much and we got to see Arya Stark put an end to her career of vengeance by wandering away into the wilderness.

    If D&D really wanted to kill off Dany so bad it should have ended like this. So after she burns down kings landing and the iron throne from realising she is not the true heir and its Jon she flies off with Drogon. Jon becomes king and Arya leaves Westeros, finds Dany and kills her only the twist is its not Arya its a faceless man.

    I think hindsight has made the ending slightly better as in most people were just so hyped that they blew a gasket over a tv show

    This is over? Shooooooot! I missed seasons 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and this one. Oh well!

  • Eden Frank Mtambalika

    This final season was more for the intellect. The flow of events fits well and is fair and reasonable. The absence of sex scenes shouldnt make people conclude its a bad season. Its a fair roundoff of events

    I don’t understand you guys, the ending wasen’t even bad. They could have made at least one more episode tho. But the ending was beautiful

    NOPE Dexter did....at least Dany or any of the characters didnt turn into depressed lumberjacks and some of them had decently happy endings but it was still crap lol. So I'd say 2nd worse series finale

    I can't stand anything game of thrones after that horrible final season. Had it continued i would not have watched, I actually skipped a couple of episodes after reading about them but In my opinion the show took a dive after season 3 and never recovered. They should have focused on story not effects.

    So many other options for the ending would have been better. It also felt vaguely like they ripped off The Return of the King’s ending.

    I still think the thrown should have gone to gendry of hose beratheon. Ned would take the north and denary should have returned to esos.

    I'm glad I never got into this show until just these past few weeks knowing it was completed. I was enjoying it up until Jon met dany and things slowly went downhill with a few ups like the rescue in the north and the first scenes of the long night battle. The long night battle was very dark and pretty much as soon as the night king raised the dead again, I thought oh everyone is going to die or some miracle will happen but no, a simple dagger and potion of invisibility and the night king is dead and many people thought dead were still alive. I actually thought it was only the main characters and a few nameless soldiers left but then later on we see there is still a fair amount of dany's army left. I'd say after the night king raised the dead again, Jon went into NPC mode for the rest of the season until the very end, with the "She is our/my queen".

    King's landing burning, I was already disconnected at this point with the show and didn't really care about anyone but tyrion and I felt bad for the hound and jamie.

    They should of done something with cersei first, then created the epic finale around the night king or at the very least create a plot twist around cersei betraying everyone.

    Why the series finale really sucked?
    Answer: Because it didn’t go the way you wanted it to, so you decide to bitch and moan like spoiled babies.

    remember the good old days of season 1 when everything was completely well thought and well written? when the show still had an epic story to tell you, full of unknown?
    gone are the days...
    instead we had starbucks as as exciting news of season 8...

    DISGUSTING ENDING! I am so angry I wish I had a dragon to ride and do to HBO Studios what Daenerys did to King's Landing. I've never been so pissed about a TV show in my entire life.

    Why are they bothering with prequels when D&D ensured no one will even re-watch the original series? D&D had on their hands the greatest political drama of all time, and they somehow turned it into a medieval version of Falcon Crest. Now, instead of being banned from the entertainment industry for life, they have a Star Wars gig? Someone at Disney is on the Longbottom Leaf!

    Jon should have been revealed to be fire proof (cant remember why dany was fireproof thought it was their blood) in his battle against the undead dragon, instead of the blue dragon dying from anakin-i mean arya killing the droid control shi- i mean frosty darth maul. Blue dragon should have had an epic one v one with jonny boy jon becomes victorious over it.
    Then in the end of the show drogon is pissed about dany, he flies off to mourn, jon snow reveals himself as a targaryan, drogon returns and blast parts of the unsullied against jons will, he calms the dragon down, hops up on him, he tells gray worm he is free to do whatever he wants, the thousand northman hazah jon as he flies away. Thats a happier ending than that bullshit card he was dealt

    The show could have included some backstory about Rhaegar and Lyanna. It just makes them look like selfish cunts who eloped and caused thousands of deaths.

    I think Fonzie would be the most pissed, his 'jumping the shark' of the past 40 years just got eclipsed by GOT S08 as being the shittest ending to a TV series ever.
    Well.... Fonzie's wasn't the literally end of the show, but you know what I mean.

    My opinion. If they hadn’t made Daenerys and Jon fall in love, the season wouldn’t be as bad. Honestly I see no reason for them to even have a relationship other than aunt and nephew ( and even so they barely would have gotten along.) I’m pretty new to the books but if I’m not mistaken they never ended up together and will probably not end up together in the final book seeing as they haven’t met yet so. I just think they made a mistake buy making Jon and Daenerys lovers.

    Got built up these epic and long drawn plot lines about white Walker's and Jon Snow lineage for no reason at all...
    Seriously the most disappointing and half Baked final season ever...I don't think I'll even rewatch it
    ... It's a shame because first 6 seasons were immense...

  • Derek Meeks

    I'm a little upset about saying they were upset over the backlash because they work their butts off to make the last season a good season. Did they have to build the sets themselves, do they have to do their own makeup, did they have to arrange their own travel plans, did they have to do character studies on the characters they've been playing for eight seasons, did they not get paid millions of dollars
