I can hardly believe how utterly boring the final episode was. I felt no excitement while watching it, which is amazing considering this used to be the show that could fill the screen with tension where just 2 characters were talking.
Anyway, let's break it down.
Daeny's descent into mad queen talking about liberating the whole world under her rule in a not so subtle reference to George W. Bush is probably where the story ultimately was leading to, but it absolutely was not written well in this entire season.
The scene where there are dragon wings behind her was horrendously cringey.
Where the fuck did she get so many Unsullied and Dothraki, ffs? I thought the Dothraki all died in the Battle agains the White King and at least a majority of the Unsullied were cut down as well. There was a scene where Varys specifically mentioned that their and Circei's forces were now "distressingly equal".
How did she respawn them all?
Her death is one of the worst scenes in the show. I will give the show this, having Deany touch the Iron Throne, but never actually sit on it was good, but come the fuck on, you can't tell me that Jaime lanister can be skewered through both sides with a foot-long dagger and be able to find Cercei and have a lengthy talk with her, but Deany dies near instantly without final word. She couldn't even utter "traitor" or something at Jon Snow?
Speaking of Jaime and Cercei the scene of Tyrion fnding their bodies looked so half-assed. They had an entire top floor worth of bricks fall on them, yet they both look remarkably unscathed. Do you have any idea what a crushed body looks like? You couldn't even put in the effort to cave in Cercei's skull with a brick or something?
The scene where Drogon melts the Iron Throne is oh so very poetic and poignant and stupid. Dragons are clearly intelligent in this show, but there was nothing what so ever shown thus far to give the idea that they understand the game of thrones.
I know what it is supposed to mean, but it comes off forced. All you had to do was have Drogon burn the entire room down and have the throne melt as a side effect when Drogon flies off, not have him intentionally blast the throne for half a minute.
Even more than that, killing Daeny before the episode is half over in a very anticlimactic way is probably one of the dumbest decisions made in this episode full of fail.
Tyrion was a dumbass this entire season, but come the fuck on. Are you telling me that him betraying Varys and fucing up this season and his belief in Daeny was out of love? One of the smartest men in the world became an idiot all because he really, really wanted that dragon pussy?
You've got to be fucking kidding me.
Why did Gray Worm not kill John and Tyrion right then and there? What possible fucking reason could he have to spare them and let them be judged by a council of the lords and ladies of Westeros, especially right after the death of his Queen. He executed prisoners on the street, but won't kill the guy his queen was going to execute and the man who killed her?
The council of the lords and ladies was such horseshit too.
For some reason they buy into Tyrion's "stories are powerful" author self-insert bullcrap and decide to elect a King and disregard hundreds of years of tradition, because Davos said they need a better way or something. Half the people there are plotting schemers who can't wait to stab each other in the back, why the fuck would they agree to this?
At this point, I will flat out state that Bran and Sansa are evil and selfish, despite their constant protestations to the contrary.
Bran indicates quite clearly that he knew this was going to happen in the usual stereotype of the character with prophetic abilities or future vision.
If he knew that all the events that happened would happen and that he would be chose King and decided to say nothing about it to prevent it, he wanted the throne and was willing to let hundreds of thousands burn to get it.
He is fucking evil!
Sansa is the next Cercei and I fully believe she intends to have Bran assassinated within 5 years. When Bran was chosen, all the other kingdoms decide to agree to it, some who would have far less reason to do so, but Sansa pipes up at the last moment to say that oh so many northen soldiers died and they deserve and independent kingdom with her conveniently with the crown.
I kept waiting for any of the others to say something like: "Wait, we can do that?"
Sansa is evil and selfish. In a moment where everyone else there acted against their own interests to elect her brother to the throne, she decides to be cut the rug from under him and his authority by declaring her independence instead of standing with him to cement a proper union.
What's to stop the other kingdoms to say in a few years time that they want to be independent too? What's Bran going to say: "No, you can't because you aren't my sister"?
Sansa wants to rule and have to answer to no one. She is either evil or stupd and selfish. MAybe even all three.
Arya is a character that confuses me most of all. In the last episode she rode off on a horse only to return without said horse in this one to do nothing other than point out the bloody obvious to her dumbass brother Jon, that Deany has gone kill crazy.
How in fuck's name have the last 7 seasons of her becoming the greatest assassin in the world, capable of killing the Night King, lead to her becomeing an explorer? That came out of fucking nowhere.
Finally we get to Jon Snow. Jon Snow, King in the North, Commander of the Night's Watch, Not killer of the Night King, Yeller at Undead Dragons, The Unwilling, The Irresponsible, the Incompetent, The Unbanging, The man of 2 snetences: "I don't want it" and "She's my queen"
Jon probably drew the shortest straw in this entire season.
What has he done this season prior to this final episode? If you don't count riding a dragon and banging Daeny until he no longer could in the worst moment possible, he did fuck all until it came time to stick it to Daeny.
Jon is such a terrible character here. Everyone is constantly telling him what needs to be done, what he should do or the blatantly obvious, but he keeps avoiding having to make any decision or taking any responsibility, constantly hiding behind Daeny's skirt.
The whole season everyone keeps harping on how Jon is a good mand and how it is perhaps best that the man who doesn't want to be king sit on the throne.
He is not a good man. A good man is not an indecisive dullard. A good man takes charge and responsibility, he sacrifices his own comfort for the good of others.
He constantly walks away from his problems instead of facing them, the one time he doesn't, he does it in the stupidest way, he refuses to see what's right in front of his face and has to be told over and over again by other characters what he already knows until it sinks in and even then I'm notsure he would have done what he did if there was any other way out.
For all his proclamations of love to Daeny, he rejected her in the worst moment possible, because he felt wierd about it. Had he not done that, he may have been able to keep Daeny from going over the edge and prevented the deaths of hundreds of thousands and he wouldn't have had to stab Daeny either.
His ultimate fate of being banished to the Night Watch or going off passed the wall with the Wildlings was completely stupid, but at least the daft cunt actually pet his dire wolf.
What a fucking dive-bomb of a final season. A horrendously rushed and poorly told ending to a once excellent series.
