The only criticism I have with Season 8 is that it's rushed. Certain narrative twists and turns needed a few more episodes to build properly. Otherwise, the character arcs all make sense and they track. They are pretty much in tuned with what Game of Thrones is all about. And if the leaks are accurate, the ending is gonna be quite brilliant but a lot of people will hate it because they didn't get the underlying spirit of the Song of Ice and Fire story and GRRM's intention for what the story is supposed to be about.

Who else thinks the great war should've arrived after the last war instead?

IMO the show has always presented Cersei to be the big bad boss, plus the politics and power-play behind it - hence they end it with the Last War & Dany's inevitable madness.

I don't think petitions ever work, and idk if there are ways to game the change.org system... but this Remake Game of Thrones Season 8 with competent writers petition and the fact that it already has 681,105/1,000,000 signatures is hilarious.

I think when the book series is complete, maybe producers can explore doing an animated re-adaptation of the last two books. Any live adaptation without the original cast and crew will just do more harm than good.

The books will have pretty much have the same ending. Different path and different context, perhaps. But, yeah, same ending.

Yeah but what happens in the end is not the problem, it's how they happen that's the problem. The rush towards those endings is what made the last several episodes really bad.

Having another show (i.e. an animated series ala-Clone Wars) about the last two books with a similar broad plotline but filling in all those holes that were needed to let the plot develop more organically and using the final two published books as source material could interest a lot of viewers.

I agree that this season definitely felt rushed, but rather than spend time criticizing what I'm getting,  I am just waiting for the ending and hope that GRRM lives long enough to finish his last 2 books so I can fill in the gaps.

It's pretty obvious that the books will be able to put more nuances to how and why the plot developed to its conclusion.

This is, of course, provided that the books have already been completed.

I like Cersei too but she's more of a nuisance to Dany than a threat. But I get it maybe they had a good ending in mind but the execution and pacing sucks.

I'm just as disappointed at the last couple of episodes but maybe that level of outrage is better suited to more important issues in the world instead of a TV show...

One scene na hindi pa pala natin nakikita, Jon (being a true Targaryen) passing the fire test ............. methinks, that the final episode will have Jon go through fire (Drogon?) and remain unscathed - revealing his true lineage to others.

Sorry, what I meant was true dragon .......... fire cannot kill a true dragon, as what Dany stated when Viserys got his golden crown.

I wanna see Adventures of Arya Stark spinoff. hahaha!

The ending was okay. I just don't like that viewers are left to imagine what happens in between the events after the war.

Oh well. That's what happens when you try to squeeze in a full season in so little episodes. Episode 3 would have been the ending with the most payoff, in my opinion. Or a better/rewarding death for Cersei.

Hated the episode, but Daenerys becoming the Dragon Queen is one of the best shots of the entire series. That was beautiful.

I actually liked the ending, it was a win-win for everyone at most. Maybe if they stretched this into 2 seasons more, the current one for the Night King story arc and the other for the seven kingdoms/iron throne story arc. This season feels rushed, but the ending for me was good IMHO.

I also wanna see an Adventures of Arya Stark spin-off. She did not get that much action in the final season.

All good things must come to an end.  :'(

After 73 episodes, 8 seasons, 8 years, natapos na din ang Game of Thrones. The best tv series for me. I don't know kung meron pang tatalo dito.

Yung opening scene sa pinaka start ng GOT, yun din naging parang last scene, akala ko meron na naman lalabas na wight walkers

Para saan pa kaya 'yung Wall, wala na naman wildlings at wight walkers?  :)
