    I liked it and the season overall. In saying that I have come around to the idea that the DDs just didn't give themselves time to get everything done. Another couple of episodes this season and I think it would be perfect, as it was I think its much more satisfying than Lost. Plenty of loose ends for George to garden with if he wants. Plenty of spin off sequels if HBO want to go there. I'm happy enough though.

    Oh yeah, and finally all the people who actually believed that Jon wasn't going to see Ghost again get to quit whinging about it.

    Also, I always argued that Bran saw the future. If you ever said otherwise, despite having actual clips of future episodes in his visions--  I was right and you were wrong. Check the tape!

  • So bran used his 3 eyed raven power to get his ass on the throne and save all his family, the stark kids.

  • It must have been a hell of a story that Bran told Tyrion.

    Politics, probably. (ducks)

  • I believe Bran 3 eye ravened himself into Tyrion’s prison cell and heard Tyrion brainstorming his ideas on leadership. That’s why he said ‘why do you think I’m here’

    So let me get this right... 

    A non-redeemed Jamie and Mad Queen Cersei die beneath a pile of rocks, 

    The White Walkers, and The Night King and his army of others are defeated in one night... 

    Jon becomes a Queen Slayer by killing his Queen, Lover, Aunt, who went crazy and burned down an entire city killing almost all of its people. He then reunites with Ghost and gets to live a life completely free without having to worry about Kings or Queens or the realm. 

    Bran becomes King of six kingdoms, with the implication that he may have planned for this entire scenario to happen by manipulating the time-line?

    Sansa becomes Queen in the North

    Arya becomes a care free adventurer, journeying for unknown lands beyond Westeros 

    Sam becomes Arch Maester

    Bronn becomes Master of Coin

    Davos becomes Master of Ships

    Tyrion becomes the Hand of the King/Queen for the 3rd time. 

    Brienne becomes head of the Queens Guard 

    Drogon fucks off and flies who knows where with Dany's corpse. 

    The Dothraki and Unsullied presumably go off to liberate more cities in Essos.

    Where exactly is the bittersweet ending at? 

    Okay, King's Landing and Dany died but that seems to be it.

    Amazing last minute defeat of Daenerys's version of utopian socialism by Jon Snow - it was like killing Stalin before he really got going.....

    I’m at a loss to say anything more than, well, that was pleasant enough and could have been worse. Which seems kind of a bummer. But at least I sort of liked it, and didn’t hate it, which I guess is enough, I suppose. 

    EDIT: other than to say the Double Ds probably considered having an after the episode that consisted solely of a shot of Jon scratching his dog, and then them turning to the camera, saying “so who’s clever now, Reddit?” then high-fiving each other.

  • What in the actual fuck was that??! That has to be one of the most anti-climactic season finales I’ve ever seen! Everything was going great up until the point Drogon flew off. Everything else was like a wet fart. Everyone knows Jon is the rightful heir and the reason why the 7 kingdoms are not all ice zombies. And they send him to the knights watch??!?! The biggest contribution Bran did was warg into some birds while everyone else was dying. What a bunch of horse shit!! There are 1,000 different ways this could have been a much more satisfying series finale. I’m absolutely baffled by the double D’s choices!

    I was halfway expecting a shot of Drogon with Dany as an Ice Queen north of the wall.

  • Drogon mourning his mommy. I actually had tears. 

    He burned the throne. It corrupted her. I think he understood what Jon had to do.

  • Meh. It was fine. Fine for what the season was and what I lowered my expectations to. I mean it ended....Barry tho...!

    I'm satisfied. I didn't like episode 4 & 5 all that much, I hated a lot of things, etc., but whatever, I liked this finale and I liked the endings everyone got.

    I mean, you know what "bittersweet" means, right?

    And the bittersweet ending isnt just talking about the literal last episode of the series since that was always going to focus more on what happens after. Its talking about the ending of the story, which includes the past couple of episodes as well.

    The Iron Throne? Really??? We’re gonna name the series finale after the chair that melts halfway through the episode? I guess so.

    Like I said, you're free to like it. I won't critique you for it, as it's a fair opinion. But being upset because people disagree with your definition of what a bittersweet ending entails is quite patronizing to be honest. And look I'm not interested in arguing about this, it's not worth it to me. I didn't like it, you do. And that's okay.

    I liked it. A couple overly fan servicey spots but even King Bran grew on me the more I thought about it. 

    Not sure I buy Grey Worm going along with just naming the King on the spot, but it seemed like that or war. 

    Bittersweet achieved IMO. Mostly, I’m glad the Starks are ok and probably all where they should be.

  • I was actually really into it like 10 minutes in. I was ready to fan bankruptcy Dany going mad and settle in for them ending her fascist regime. But then Jon says he loves her, and stabs her, and Drogon slags the throne and it got really corny from there. The rest was just bullet point epilogue. Most of those points were fine and I feel like they could have gotten there in a better show. But I don't think most of it was earned.

  • As expected, half of King's Landing survived.

    It was a decent tie-up from a flawed setup.

    Jon killing Danny? Great and ultimately necessary.
    Council instigating a constitutional monarchy? Great.
    Sansa queen in the north? Great.
    Tyrion as Hand and the other small council assignments (including Bronn)? Great.
    Jon joining the Knight’s Watch? WTF is the Knight’s Watch now? Nothing to defend against but still vulnerable from the south? No reason for this to exist and I don’t get why Jon going north of the wall is a good thing or any kind of conclusion.
    Bran as King? Unearned entirely. WTF has Bran been doing since the holding of the door? Was he manipulating everything for his ascension? That’s dark. Was he manipulating everything for the good of the realm? He did a piss poor job then. And who is his successor? That’s always the biggest issue with a consensus ruler, how do you handle the succession? Not even mentioned in passing.
    Drogon flying off? Necessarily convenient.
    Unsullied Sailing of to Naath? Equally convenient, but at least foreshadowed.
    Dothraki? No idea what they did or where they went.
    Surviving Golden Company? Based on the language of the battle of Winterfell 50% must have survived no matter what was shown on screen. Looks like more than 50% of Unsullied survived actually based on that scene with Danny looking over them all.
    Arya heading off to adventure? Fine. WTF was the point of her ability with faces though this season?
