Where's your ending review. I'm dying to hear it. As someone who gave up after the Night king, I still want to see how some one who gave up after the last episode sees the ending.

I don’t really blame the people who wrought this, they are forced to finish off a book that the main writer hasn’t. Like you give someone your book and it’s a murder mystery, and you give a friend the task of finishing it, and they don’t know who the killer is, but you do

Whenever I hear a show being great, I usually wait until all the seasons are done. If the Finale is great, then I watch all the seasons.

Once the show got away from the books, it went downhill fast. The worst are Dany and Tyrion. Tyrion went from a very logical person to an idiot. Dany in the books was always caring and put her people’s needs before her own; she did not wanna end up like her father. Show Dany was a power-hungry dick for a long time: wanting power above all else. It’s a tragedy

I understand why angry and grieving people do horrible things and step out of their normal moral boundaries - look at End Game - however, this is stepping way out of line to a point no human can sympathize with the main characters' decisions and thoughts and emotions anymore.

You really make no sense in this review. 1. What happens in this episode is what would have always happened, deal with it. 2. Yes, as they only have 6 episodes left they have to wrap it up quickly, thats the only issue here. Its a little fast. 3. Jamie: So you expect this man who has changed over the years to shack up with his latest woman while he lets his own sister/first love/mother to his children face down an army? Thats the old Jamie, letting his sister/first love/ MOTHER of his children get slaughtered by a queen with a dragon while he enjoys a hump. Have you ever heard the saying Blood is Thicker than Water? Would you not run to save your own family if you had to chose between them and humping the girl you just picked up? Do you know what family is??? 4. Tyrion: He is a talker. His only power and means of survival is to manipulate those who a literally BIGGER than him. Its how he survives. He read lots in order to increase his ability to be useful as a talker. HE IS NOT A GENIUS. He is a dwarf trying to stay alive in a world that usually kills dwarfs on sight for fun. Thoughout the series he has made a TON of mistakes but we did not see those as mistakes as they helped him to survive against people we hated, which is his goal. In the end the smartest thing he did was to go behind his queens back and free his brother putting himself at great risk. Oh thers that family thing again. Jesus man, he basically admits all this when talking to Jamie. 5. Daenerys: Her family was torn apart when she was a kid and she ended up living with her brother in a country she never saw as home. A brother who really fancied having his bit of her body, as is tradition in their bloodline. What else is tradition in their bloodline? Madness. They are all stark raving mad. Her father was killed by Jamie BECAUSE HE WAS TOTALLY MAD. Her brother had this madnes, thats why we hated him and loved it when he wore his new crown. WHY is she immune from her families madness? Turns out she is as mad and crazy as the rest. You didnt see it? because she was freeing slaves? I saw it here and there, between the lines. She freed the slaves etc just to get the power and strength she needed. She said it was to get the iron throne, something she was totally obsessed by. Every time she was on screen it was so predictable! " I want my iron throne, no one would dare stand before me", then Tyrion comes along and talks some sense into her and we forget her madness showed itself. Then she has her closest friends killed, her lover turns out to be her nephew and he dont want the nooky anymore as he is not a full blood Targaryen so its naturally not his cup of tea and thus as he is her nephew it turns out the iron throne will never be hers unless everyone lies about it which they tend to not want to do as they somehow like Jon Snow much better. So, answer this. An obsessed queen, nothing to her name. Everything done to get a throne she cant have. Her own nephew wont sleep with her anymore. What has she got left? Her families madness. So yes, like her father before she cant help but BURN ALL OF THEM. HAHAHAHAH I HAVE A DRAGON AND YOU WILL BOW TO ME IN FLAME!!! NOBODY WILL HAVE THE IRON THRONE!!! BURN MY NEPHEW TOO, HE MUST BE DOWN THERE SOMEWHERE! THIS IS SO SATISFYING, DADDY WAS RIGHT, FIRE IS POWER, DEATH IS MY JUDGMENT! YOU WILL PAY FOR YOUR BETRAYAL AND LOVE ME FOR SPARING WHOEVER SURVIVES! You really didnt see this coming? Just because the series is running faster than we are used to does not mean its written badly. Perhaps what you are seeing is the weakness further seasons would have because there are no books. So do you want all of it in 6 episodes or strung out over the next several years? GRRM has already stated that what you will see is what he intends it to be. He told you that there is no democracy, you dont get to vote on anything, Suck it up and accept it. You were wrong about these characters if you think you knew them. Perhaps we can get on the huge potential of the prequels now? I want to see the story behind the Night King and the Long Night. I want to see how the wall was built by Bran and if that Bran was anything to do with the one we know. I want to explore the story of the Children of the Forest and perhaps more about the God of Light. But no, some idiots want to re-write season 8 to make Danny and John happy families sitting on two iron thrones.

I get it, Dany lost her shit because of everyone she’s losing and we need a good reason to dislike her for the grand finale where she doesn’t get to sit on the iron throne. In the end we’ll all be like yeah... this is how it’s supposed to be! Just wait and see!

Hey is this the =3 guy?
I already knew for years that Daenerys cracking under all of the pressure of her personal desires would cause her to snap. But, the one unchanging consistent trait of her character was that she never wantonly murdered and burned innocents and children. Because, the harming of children reminded her of her own abuse as a young girl by her brother and being sold into bondage to barbarians. I guess years and years of that aspect of her characterization wasn't important.

Everyone is seeing this Dany turn as abrupt, but it's been building since the beginning of the season! Her last hope in finding love over fear was dashed with Jon's(Aegon's) rejection of her advances, and when Missandei died, she took her last word to heart and straight up "Dracarys'd" Kings Landing...!

What happened with Jamie? He was one of the best characters. He should just stay away from his sister. His death was stupid. Most of the deaths now are stupid. I never liked Dany, I thought she was selfish and should go full out evil, I guess? Then someone (maybe Tyrion) kill her on the throne and then he becomes King? Or Arya kills her? Or John?

I disagree on every point with the mother of dragons. Think what she has lost since going to westeros. 2 dragon children. A general who loved her in everyway, she left a man she thought she loved behind, and her first true friend. All but 2 advisers are dead. One of which is there only for war and knows very little of anything else. For 2 seasons they have called for her mercy and it keeps costing her family. Then finally, seeing cercie standing INDIFFERENT TO THE DEATH OF HER MEN, and she snaps. Burn it all. This city was never worth WHAT SHE GAVE UP TO GET TO THE WALLS. that is the point.
So you didn’t think it was cool that dany dropped the castle that Jamie and Cersei wanted so bad on their head. I mean she dropped the castle on Jamie who killed her father in that castle. She dropped it on Cersei who did anything to be the queen of that castle on their head. Dany killed them. Not the castle. She knew that she would kill them by doing that. Not Jamie maybe but def Cersei.

Dany’s character arch makes sense, it’s just rushed. If they started her descent a season ago, it wouldn’t have felt so cheap when she went crazy.

I thought the Jaime Lannister arch was a little weak, but to be honest, he never really diverted his devotion to Cersei save for a (meaningless) fling with Brienne. Dany basically told us that she was going to go terrorist and why she did. Word of Jon Snow's legacy has gotten around. She'll never be loved by the people like he is and she is inches from the Iron Throne. Since she does not have the strongest claim to the throne then she will claim it by terror. The way it was written was really subtle, but I honestly couldn't hate on it. We were kept in the same place as Jon, someone with little idea as to what's happening until it all breaks loose.

I like jow gray worm last his shit. That made sense. He wants complete slaughter. Was pissed how Dany turned bad and Also how Snows men disregarded him. I think it would be awesome when the Unsullied started the slaughter if the men of the North just stood there with there mouths opened and slowly fell back in shock.

Totally in character for Daenerys. Had the power of a god for the last 8 seasons, starts to think she is one.
DanceOrama89 Day ago
Daenerys did say she would take what is hers with fire and blood. I felt she crossed the line when she impulsively killed the Tarleys. Jamie once said he wants to die in the arms of the woman he loves. And Yes!!! I told my husband today if Bran doesn't do anything in the last episode he is a freaking useless character!! 😆😆😆
Keon Mackenzie
The shocking moments in seasons 1-6, whilst shocking, made sense. The shocking moments of seasons 7-8 make no sense with no development or character consideration.
Tyrion slowly finds his heart to care for other people. He begins as a smug logical dick and slowly changes his emotional narrative. But honestly doesn't matter because they wasted their creative effort by killing off the Night King on ep3 what the fuck were they thinking... Just uuuuuuuuugggggghhhhh.....

Actually liked Jaimes story, only one that made some sense, Jaime is a character that is far from perfect, I think he Originally went to kill Cersei, but when he saw her he didn't see Cersei, he saw his Sister. Danny however had no development Arya has plot armor thicker than the Mountains D

Patrick Oliver Bustamante
To me this is the most organic season of all, no superficial nonsense due to character buildup, Danny turns the battle to catharsis her vengeful experiences due to recent happenings like the recent deaths, Jaime's action is understandable since she knew cersie since childhood and loved her for a long time unlike brienne and I know cersie's death is a bummer I just want her to suffer before she die but Danny's struggle especially on psychological perspective is saddening yet other characters are damn too rediculous especially bran, sansa doesn't trust danny due to bran spoiling what happended in the future

No superficial nonsense? The entire season has been about spectacle, it's been nothing but superficial.

I am just trying to convince myself that she became overwhelmed with emotion as all the trusted people around her either died or became stupid useless liability in a very short span of time(maybe its womans nature to be vengeful idk). 2 of her dragons died, her dothraki army died to protect winter folks who don't give a shit about her, Jorah and Missandei died, Jon doesn't want to be with Dany anymore all of a sudden and Tirion wants to be saint now than an adviser. People of King's Landing celebrated the death of Ned and Robb Stark but Arya will avenge them now maybe; an emotionless assassin became sentimental now.............

I agree with everything except Danny. If you didn't see her becoming the mad queen then you went paying attention. The point of going mad is that it's not a gradual transformation, it's a snap that occurs and that happened to Danny.

My biggest problem with this is bad Physics. They made the dragon way too powerful. Fire can make things get hot. It can even set something ablaze. But it doesn't blow up buildings. DRogons breath can't do that. Its not explosive and its not a lazer. He isn't the Death Star. He can make fire. He literally lasered a building in half at one point. Dany could have done this at any point? He "exploded" the giant gate his breath crumbled and blew up thick stone. NOPE. Take a torch and try to burn a brick. It wont do anything but get the brick hot. It certainly will not explode. Drogon it not an F16 jet fighter. He is a creature with a breath weapon. Yes, fire breath is powerful, but it cannot simply obliterate rock. Ruined it for me. This would have been so much better if the ground soldiers had actually fought. What's the point of having all these guys wit h armor and swords? They never fight?

This shit storm is soooo funny. All of these people complaining and signing the petition : " this makes no sense" "don't tell us we don't understand this show cause we are fans so obviously we do". I'm sorry but no you don't, this ending as always been the plan from Martin. Man are the enemies. You don't escape your past. Everybody is corrupt by power. There is no heroes. and don't trust those who call themself rightfull rulers. Daenerys goin' Anakin as been forshadowed in the show since season 1 and you where blind to it because you loved the show so much and you where rooting for the kaalesi so much that you dismissed all those clue and ints that at every moment she could switch. So now you're in total denial of that and that's the beauty of what they've done with the show. Hangry fans are reactin exactly the same way daenerys is doing in the show : They don't get what they want so they want to burn everything, becoming childish sadistic bastards shitting on the work of people who've put 10 years of hard work to makes this show your favorite show. This is really too good to watch. WHAT A FUCKING GENIUS END TO A FUCKING GENIUS SHOW.
