If the writers were in such a rush I don’t know why they just didn’t get the boot and HBO could have brought someone else for a proper finish

Damn, who signs that? That's embarrassing lol

Anyone who didn't see this coming hasn't been watching the series at all.

I wish I still had the energy and enthusiasm to want this but my love for this show was mortally wounded in S5 and died a slow death over the next few years.

It's not just dead, it died a while ago, Jim.

What is dead may never die.

i've really disliked this season (and the last few), but the absolutely terrible discourse around it by just the most embarassing nerds is making me want to like it.

learn to engage with art like a normal person jesus christ.

Man, #TeamDany folks really couldn't handle the confirmation that Dany was bad news the entire time could they?

Me the moment Dany started torching the city:

Seriously. I would love to know what their dream ending would have been.
Choosing violence after the surrender of the city. Going to destroy the red keep to kill cersei, and her dragon's fire accidentally sets off the caches of wildfire around the city massacring thousands of innocents as a result of her drive for the throne and her destiny. Inadvertently she completes her father's plan to burn the city, and irreparably marks herself as the mad queen that razed an entire city. It would be tragic, foreshadowed, and still be the result of her hot headed decision making and desire to punish those who she sees who deserve it.

Her deciding to needlessly, purposefully level the entire city with a population of hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians–on her way to Cersei–is stupid. They even threw in little plumes of green wildfire going off in the background like a tease for a better ending than what they wrote.

Lol let's just let it end

No more, please.

Honestly, the biggest thing I'm looking forward to with the finale is that the show will be over and I'll not have to care anymore.

I would be happier with a full reboot called A Song of Ice and Fire in 10-15 years after the books are all finished. That is my dream world.

The show is what it is.

Yet being the key word given how embarrassing GoT fandom has gotten.
Honestly, once anything goes mainstream the hardcore section goes nuclear whenever something doesn't go their way. It's why I've always preferred to enjoy the things I like on my own or with a very small group of people rather than expose myself to the venom present in any big fanbase.

Just edit it to end at episode 2 and a well made 20 minute or less 5 years later epilogue explaining what happened to everyone.

I'm done with it though. I only started watching this season when I got hints of people laughing at episode 3. I wanted to see what all of the commotion was about.

Stupid.

I mean, I could see GoT being remade in 20 or 30 years if GRRM ever finishes the books (ha!) and we'd presumably get the book ending there. But this is just dumb. There's nothing inherently wrong with the events of this last season, its just that its so damned rushed and the developments feel unearned.

You would feel like the little kid who just got someone else's birthday because you whined about it.

I think people in this thread didn't read the change.org, it complains about the writers not exclusivly the way it ends the last episode.
I'm agree that this season is shit, but it's just enternaiment, much more important things deserve my signature than a tv show.

Had to explain to co-workers why people are calling a potential Game of Thrones remake Brotherhood. That was fun.
