Anyone Else Want To Rant About That Game Of Thrones Ending?
I just finished watching it and I'm glad that it's over. I don't think I have it in me to watch another show like GOT again, not after that abysmal Season 8 that somewhat ruined my experience of watching it and the excitement for the last season. 

Never before any series of similar length has disappointed as GOT Season 8 has. Maybe i'm over stating things but the ending could have been better for sure.

Jon was such a great character and they turned him into someone who can't do his job. Danny just dies, just like that and her dragon takes off with her body. 
 
Jon and Tyrion remaining imprisoned after Danny's death? Why weren't everyone informed about Jon being the rightful heir to the Iron Throne. Ofcourse, dragonbreath had to melt that stone. Wonder how it got the idea to do that? 

Where are the Dothraki going? What about the unsullied who were in control of King's landing. How of many unsullied remain after the war with the nightking? Could they have outnumbered the forces of everyone else. 

How did HBO pass off such poor writing and agree to put their money behind making the season 8. It would have very well ended at Season 7 for all I care now.

It's nice that Drogon is alive and free, flying all over the world but what was that about Bran saying he doesn't want to be the kind but then saying "why do you think i'm here?"

Make up your mind Bran. Can you see the future or only the past? Nobody knows the full extent of his powers or why Jon went off beyond the wall. Also, a large portion of the wall was destroyed right? Why wasnโ€™t that shown. 

Well iโ€™m sure there are many more goof ups including but not limited to a water bottle in the season finale. 

I'm a little bit disappointed to say the least. It could've very well been one of the greatest shows but after making everyone wait for 2 years they somehow managed to ruin the last season. 

What are your thoughts on this now that you've seen the season finale?

I share your oppinion. I'm dissapoint too. Two years of waiting for what? For that, I can say, not so good ending. I was so exciting because of this season, but they dissapoint me in one hour. They didn't answer for some big questions, like you said. 
That moment of Deny's death... John (Aegon), who is just one prisoner, not the last one king.. Arya, who goes somewhere else, we don't know where... Bran, who refused to be King on the North, but said that he is ready to be King of the Seven Kingdoms.. 
The Drogon, who flies somewhere.. 
I didn't expected this. This is so big dissapoint for me and I would like they change the ending, they didn't explain anything, so much confusing things.. I'm so mad and I'm sorry I lost my time on watching this 8 season.

Oh yes! I agree! Im still so disappointed! Like i can see that there's gonna be a twist but didn't expect that it didn't make sense at all! I think it would make much more sense to put Sansa on that throne after what she had gone through and how strong she has become. It just didn't make sense that the one who appear the least and has so little story in all the seasons is the one who become king ๐Ÿ˜‚

Totally a disappointment of season, too hasty, left many gaps in the plot, "solved" problems in the most stupid and meaningless way possible, the change in some characters was very fast and not at all contextual to what they were demonstrating during all 8 season.


The whole thing about Jon being a targaryen went nowhere.

From the first season we are told that "Winter is Coming" that is, the biggest danger in GOT were the white walkers and the night king and everything ended too fast and without consequences.

Another disappointment was Cercei, a great character, very intelligent and evil, was succumbed to a bad script, expected some plan on his part.


There are too many questionable things about this season and a total disappointment.

โค I am not disappointed at all. I truly am very happy watching the ending. After years of watching violence and bloodshed, I finally felt the peace and joy everyone wants. People like Brandon should rule the world who has no greed for the throne and who "knows", and that's what happened in GOT. 
What would be amazing now if they do another 3 episode season where we can see how peacefully they live afterwards, because we feel it or not, we love to see the lifestyles of the Kings, world in their times - we love their stories - more than anything. โค

I'm not that disappointed although I seem one of the only ones :D This whole series was amazing and yes the end season wasn't *the best* but in the end all the characters ended up sort of okay. I love how no-one had to be perfect or 'deserving' or a fan's favourite to end up on the throne. That's a break from general predictive writing which I can appreciate. I am going to let it sink in, but I don't think I will get disappointed in hindsight. Youtube channels like Alt Shift X and InDeepGeek helped me go through some of the disappointment I felt in the past - they often know to add just a little bit more info (from the books) that suddenly stuff makes sense. InDeepGeek for example was very well at explaining Dany's 'breakdown' the 5th episode which helped me immensely. Anyway. I also do understand disappointment and that was to be expected :-) I guess I am just lucky I feel at ease with the ending. Cheers!

I do not agree, Jon always a Chaotic Neutral character, he was a bastard, he grew up as such, the only longing that you could see was knowing his origin, he was a leader but due to the circumstances, he never ambitioned anything, he only wanted the end of the War and the He had to do what he should have done to kill his beloved and still he did not know if it was the right thing to do. He never wanted the throne and would never accept it. i like him finish. Jon had the ending that should have been, except that I would have liked it to be a decision to go to "exile" because I am angry or always happy as savage

It is a TV show after all. We can clearly see the difference between the authors perspective versus the production team of writers and directors. People may be disappointed with the ending, but it does seem very indicative of the story.

Personally I thought the finale was fine, the big screwup this season was the battle with the Night King and the army of the dead. It was all meaningless spectacle. Other than Arya's final kill-shot none of the fighting actually made any difference, it was all a waiting game for the Night King to tell his troops to stop so he could go attack Bran personally. That apparently would have happened regardless of whether the Dothraki were massacred, etc. In a well-written story the things the characters do matters, but in that episode most of the characters could just as easily have stood around doing nothing and gotten the exact same result. Since the show has been building up the threat of the White Walkers since the beginning it was a bad choice to have that plotline resolve in such a weightless manner.

> Where are the Dothraki going? What about the unsullied who were in control of King's landing. How of many unsullied remain after the war with the nightking? Could they have outnumbered the forces of everyone else.

It's implied that the Unsullied are sailing with Grey Worm to Naath, Misandei's homeland. I think there were originally a few thousand Unsullied in Danaerys's army. Presumably some have died in the various battles they've been involved in, and then there was some dialog in one of the episodes this season that 50% died in the battle with the Night King. They are unlikely to outnumber any of the Westerosi armies. Also, the strength of the Unsullied is in their highly disciplined fighting style on the battlefield, when they're trying to occupy territory they don't seem dramatically better than anyone else (e.g. they were getting picked off in Meereen).

> what was that about Bran saying he doesn't want to be the kind but then saying "why do you think i'm here?"

I think they're trying to highlight the difference between _wanting_ to be the king (ambition) and willingness to do the job (duty). He's doing it because he believes he is supposed to, not because he has a personal desire to be the king.
