In multiple video interviews GRRM has said that when a fan guesses what will happen in the next book he does not change it because of all the setup and foreshadowing needs to be changed.

But it does not mean that what he had in mind for the next book(s) was ever the same as Season 8.

I think the complaints of vocal fans is the expectation of a conventional ending that rewards the hero we most favor.

Season 8's finale is unexpected and unconventional that subverts expectations.

Ser Davos Seaworth mentioned a marriage for Jon and Dany but Bran and Sam placed a ratchet into that plan.

Jon's squeamishness with incest pretty much ended all marriage plans.

Alam ko the showrunners have mentioned before that they know the ending, but how to fill-in the details leading to the ending will definitely differ as GRRM hasn't provided these yet (given that he hasn't finished the books).  I guess fans will be looking at the books (as I will be) to fill-in what may be missing in the show.

Halos lahat ng comment ko may halong politka? Nasaan?
So matagal ka na pala dito. So nambubuli ka?

So ako ngayon ang bully? I just said there’s a thread for your political tirades. Then you said it was a direct hit to you. Then dapat respetuhin ka dahil senior ka, then napahiya ka then ako na bully?

Josme.

Yeah. Strange situation tong GoT. It started as a standard TV adaptation tapos kaya i-fill up ng book readers yung gaps in the story, pero ngayon it ended up as a skeleton of a story to be filled up by the books. Bizarre.

That's why I think it's so bad this season. Outline lang talaga pinakita nila.

I don't have a problem with what happened/the destination, it's the journey/how it happened which is lacking.

...Except Bran. Screw Bran. Yan ang reklamo kong panget ng nangyari this season. Wala talagang sense, lol.

a song of ice and fire is still about jon snows' story.. he might not be the one to sit on the throne, but still he's the main hero.


all others are substories..

kaya daming galit, kasi pinaghintay ka ng 1.5years for season 8. tapos bitin pa ang season, 6 extended episodes tapos rushed pa lahat..

tama nga sabi ng iba, sana umabot ng season 10.  season 8 focus sila sa great war, season 9 focus sila sa last war, then season 10how to terminate the mad queen. 

that pace wouldve been fulfilling.

Bro that’s one example. Same thread. I’m not fighting with you. I just said there’s a thread for your political issues. I think we share the same views pa nga politically eh.

You’re the one who’s bullying me by saying I’m just a junior here, then when you knew that you’re junior than me, you’re telling me I’m bullying you?

If I offended you with my reply, then I’m sorry, but I think mine is just a reminder. You’re the one who is “mainit” name calling me pa with Dracarys.

Let’s move one with this GoT topic, shall we?

na post ko na yata ito,
nangyari kasi sa first few seaons, sobrang bagal na bagal mga tao sa pacing / storytelling; tapos nasanay na ng ganun.
tapos ito nga last season niratrat naman ng husto LOL
IMO yun first episode nitong last season, medyo pasok pa or natural pa ang pacing tapos biglang rollercoaster na LOL
I'm not complaining (personally) about pacing, I'm surprised they suddenly abandoned story buildup, character, etc., andami pa walang sense, parang personally tingin ko they were surprising people just to surprise them that doesn't serve the story, example si Arya has this steely resolve that the show was ingraining hard as it went on, then sinabihan lang sya ni the Hound umalis, she meekly agreed? Totally out of character, andami pa actually, the reason andami disagreement online is that for such a meticulously crafted show it suddenly became lazy sa finale pa of all seasons

The more succinct description is sira ang continuity ng GoT, it feels disconnected ang 8 sa previous seasons, that's how I personally feel 😁

This. The ending  they had in mind is ok pero yun events leading up to that seems forced. 

Madaming characters  ang palpak this season IMO pero si Tyrion talaga pinaka obobs. Mad a lot of bad decisions  which doomed  a lot of people.  Tapos he manipulated gullible  and stupid Jon to fix those mistakes. Tapos sya pa may happy  ending.

As a whole, I still think that GOT is one of the greatest TV series I've seen. It's epic, cinematic and has a lot of twists and turns. The ending(specially the finale) did feel a bit rushed, but still satisfying and entertaining for me.   

I do think that the viewers have also changed from when the show started. A lot of channels where people can voice their opinions even to the extent of asking for a reshoot, OT: I am wondering how Star Wars will be accepted considering sequels will be helmed by hated creators: D and D and Rian Johnson. 

Discussion in PDVD is still quite healthy. I noticed how toxic the comments section in FB can be. Parang hindi na mapeplease ang ilang mga tao talaga.

I consider the 7 seasons as the TV series. The 8th is actually the 9-hour movie.

Ang galing lang na yung majority ng criticism na nasasabi ay minadali yung Season 8 kaya panget... pero ang naririnig pa din nung diehard fans ay "Waaah, di ko lang kasi nagustuhan kung ano yung nangyari!"

You think some people will be smarter that that but I guess people will hear what they want to hear :P

George R. R. Martin Reveals the Game of Thrones Books Will Have a Different Ending from the Show

Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if he makes changes to the ending given he has seen the reactions to the TV ending.  For all we know, sinadya niya i-delay ang book release to know the reaction, then blindside us with a "surprise" ending.  In any case, given the mixed reactions to the TV ending, I'm sure people will lap up his books once the last 2 are released and he'll get lots of $$$.  Crossing my fingers he lives long enough finish.  Though, I've also read rumors that he has finished writing  a long time ago.

I think talagang magkaiba ng ending ang book at series para mabili pa din ang libro. Para doble kita sya.

I think all the big character endings will be the same: Dany goes mad. Jon kills her. Jon gets exiled to the North. Bran becomes king. Tyrion, his Hand. Arya explores the world. Jaime & Cersei die in each other's arms. Sansa's ending though COULD be different because her story arc in the books seems like it may be going a different direction but it could end up in the same place.

The difference is the path to getting there and the context.

^  Great looking set, though they should have released it as a 4K edition immediately instead of trying to milk it out with a Blu-ray set first with 4K to follow later.

You can make drink coasters out of season 8. That's what I did with my Indy Jones set which came with a coaster labeled Crystal something something.

Despite the eighth season being wildly divisive, it still managed to get 32 Emmy nominations, a new record for a single season for a Drama Series. It even got nominations for Gwendoline Christie, Alfie Allen, Sophie Turner and Carice van Houten. The much talked about finale even got Writing and Directing nominations!
