Game of Thrones fans petition for HBO to remake season 8 following controversial episode

They destroyed two main characters. One that has been a good person, wants rid the world of tyrants and end slavery, goes from saving innocent people and risking her life to save Westeros from the undead, to killing children and destroying an entire city because she hears bells, in the span of two episodes. The other is man that starts bad and spends the whole series trying to redeem himself, only to end up right where he began as the same exact person.

The final episode entire plot has leaked and it is the biggest steaming pile of shit to end a series that will go down as arguely one of the worst endings of all time. Dont believe me? Go look at the open spoilers thread.
Dany is not a good person.

Yeah this is why I ended up not getting into Game of Thrones. With the showrunners having a serious risk of fucking shit up, and the last two books MIA, it's not like there's a clear path as to get a definitive conclusion. I'd rather not get that invested into such a large a series as GoT if the actual conclusion and leadup is completely up in the air.

Read the final episode plot in the leaks thread and then comeback here.
The finale seems perfectly fitting for this world, I wish like hell the last two seasons had been done better, and I'm sure the execution of the finale will be just as rushed but ultimately what occurs is completely befitting the series.

Either way, as someone with a Dany avatar, I feel you, I wish it had been done better but the broad strokes of it fit the series better than any cliche happy ending would have.

While the writing has been really bad for a while, there is no way that the books will end up in a different place regarding the character that triggered this response. That’s where
Daenerys
has always been heading. If the books get written, we will get that story told in a much better way.

‘Because she hears bells’ ... huh? It was too fast but there were still hints across 2 seasons it was in progress.

And get outta here with the plot leak spoilers crap. The show has always been about being watercooler talk... it never had incredible writig and to turn on it now seems so foolish.

I'd absolutely love a Game of Thrones: Brotherhood in like 10 years when GRRM has finally finished the books and the stain of D&D's shitty writing has faded away but yikes at this reaction. Way too many over entitled babies out there.

Nah. I'm thinking...

Young Griff

Will be the one who goes crazy and starts killing innocent civilians. He's already invaded well ahead of Daenerys.

I don't see that at all.
Young Griff is an invader for sure but is going to be somewhat charismatic and charming. He already has the support of Dorne, has Varys and Illyrio backing him up. He's going to have a temper but he's going to be the "perfect" king (if he makes it that far)—then Dany is now going to become the usurper, the one who is determined to take what she believes is her birthright with fire and blood. Dany's full-fledged madness will come shortly after.
 
The show is far more damaged than what people are saying happened with Daenerys. By far.

I’m not sure what the answer is. An anime seems like too much work, a reboot without the finished book material is unspeakable. I reckon we just need to find another huge fictional fantasy universe to get TV adapted. Like Wheel of Time or Malazan.

I always find this sort of thing really silly, because there's no way in hell it's ever happening, and then it undermines the legitimate criticisms with the show by sounding petulant. At any rate, the show's had major problems since post-S4, that ain't getting fixed in a season. Considering the plot and character mangling that went on with the storylines of Cat/Stannis, and the lack of fAgeon and the storylines that converge around him, we might as well wait for a remake. Someday.

Dudes just wait ten years and make Game of Thrones: Brotherhood with the proper manga ending.

...Okay it'll be more like thirty years.
The Game of Thrones: Brotherhood meme is so perfect. Hopefully we'll get it someday!

Oh, god, if we do, it will indeed probably be thirty years away. fucccccccccccccccckkkkkk

in my day we just accepted shitty endings and moved on. EWOKS.
Speak for yourself. Even at age ten, and watching Return of the Jedi for the first time I thought they were absolutely out of place and stupid. Especially since The Care Bears were hitting their peak at that point. That movie will forever be remembered as The Care Bears Defeat the Empire, just like The Phantom Menace is Disney Kid Accidentally Saves the Day. As bad as I thought they were, what retroactively made it worse was the fact that they were originally intended to be wookies instead.

Nah.

Assuming the book will still end with Crazy Dany burning King's Landing, i think Young Griff might take the throne in Winds, be a good king, participate in the fight against the zombies, and tell Dany to fuck off when she ask him to give her the throne once the dead are dealt with. Prompting her to burn the city as a response because she could not accept that.

FMA:B was able to skirt what the original anime covered in a mere 13 twenty minute episodes. Asking GOT to do recreate s1-s4 before continuing to a faithful adaptation sounds insanely unrealistic. And I’m with you. I feel post S4 we are missing half or more of the ASOIAF plot.

I don't get this, episode 5 was the first good episode and finaly felt like GoT again.
You might want to go back and rewatch the series from the beginning if you had not done that in a while. It felt nothing at all like Game of Thrones, unless it was meant to be a special episode co-written and co-directed by Michael Bay and Rian Johnson.
 
I'm surprised that people didn't realized that D&D aren't good writters only now.

I mean, look at the whole stuff they did with the Greyjoys. Better: Look what they did with the Night's King, they picked an legend from the age of the heroes, completely misrepresented it and basically wasted it in the most stupid way possible.

This petition is a completely joke because the whole work of the series relies on the Martin's mind, and not in a vision that some producers of TV had over the past works of Martin. Also, expect a happy ending from Martin isn't expecting something realistic - it's being optimistic at best, and being naive at worst.

Not to completely dismiss your point, but I doubt the majority that watch the show actually care how faithful it is to the source. Most people just want consistent storytelling and consistent rules and logic; which the series had mostly through six seasons, then consistency and logic face-planted off the Red Keep. The funny thing is, as absurd as the last season was, it was still way better than this. Like what the fuck actually happened; did they spend two years trying to get every shot perfect, while they only spent a baked weekend on the actual script?

Why even create a petition for this? Why would any studio remake a movie or show from fan backlash right away? Anyways, there’s petitions for everything these days. It loses weight or value when it’s overdone.
