I'm not a big GoT fan, so my investment in the finale is not really there, but I am watching it because my wife loves the show.

So, episode 3 of season 8 rolls around...
I won't lie, I got caught up in the first watch excitement and was able to suspend my disbelief and follow along, but there was an annoying nagging feeling that something is just not right with the entire proceedings.

Why does Jon do all but nothing? What is the fucking point of Bran? Why are all the other charters making stupid mistakes? Why is no-one dying despite being completely surrounded and even swarmed with multiple zombie? Why when the zombies overrun the one single fire trench (!!!) are they not dumping burning oil or giant fucking rocks over the side of the castle walls at the zombies that are climbing the walls without any ladders or anything?
Why does Daenny stare at Jon running off so that the zombies can jump on her and her dragon and where the fuck did Jorah come from?
Where the fuck did Arya come from and how did she get past the hordes of zombies and Whitewalkers to deliver the moneyshot?
What the fuck was the deal with Tyrion and Sansa in the Crypt?

Then I found this video and this guy really points out and lays out everything that makes no fucking sense.


I stopped following the show regularly around about the end of season 4. I can't really recognize this and that as the same show.

I keep telling people they are better off watching first four seasons and pretending Tywin and Tyrion Lannister is the main character. Shows really about the father and son bringing their family name to power and prominence despite the fuck ups of other members and enemies all around. And it ends in tragedy with Tyrion killing his father in a Freudian way. Show went off the rails without Martin’s guiding hand and fell into fanservice and vertical plot line instead of horizontal plot building.

I won’t lie when I first saw Episode 3 this season I was pretty pissed off. Pissed off about the poor tactics, pissed off about the poor lighting, pissed off that no main characters died, pissed off that a lot of the build up seemed for nothing. Personally I didn’t mind Arya killing the Night King. It’s a perfect arc for her character. And it’s been stablished she’s good at the sneak attack. I was more annoyed Season 6 showed Arya getting beat up so many times and suddenly by the end became super good at assassin stuff. Again don’t mind Arya killing the Night King, more annoyed between Season 6-7 there seems to be something missing to show how she got good.

I asked my brother who I got hooked on the show in 2017 what he thought and he thought the episode was alright but overhyped. He said it looked like the writers were more concerned about having the longest battle sequence ever filmed rather than writing one with good drama and realism behind it. And my brother is the opposite of me and isn’t into this fantasy or nerdy geek stuff usually. He’ll usually like something when I’m being nit picky or criticizing some pop culture phenomenon for being cheap spectacle lacking depth.

I rewatched it though and found I liked it more the second time once I suspended my disbelief and accepted no main characters would die (Jorah doesn’t fucking count, most fans expected him to die in Season 6 because of gray scale). Still not as good as Blackwater, Battle of the Bastards, or Battle at Castle Black.

I’m hoping the point of the white walkers is either the night king needs to exist so Jon will have to become one to bring balance to nature again, or at the very least wipe out danys army so Cersei has the advantage: I think Dany is definitely going to die or become the last villain. Maybe Jon will have to betray and kill her

Watched Episode 4... not impressed.

I'm starting to hate Jon Snow. He's ineffectual, indecisive, wants to run away from all problems and decisions now that the Night King is dead.
They keep talking like he's the second coming in terms of leadership and being king, yet I don't see a bit of it.
FFS, he doesn't want to make any difficult decisions, take any responsibility, be a leader. "Maybe the best ruler is one who doesn't want it," is such kindergarten feel good horseshit.

How the fuck did that asshole snipe one of the dragons in the heart and throat with a balista, but didn't fire at Daeny diving at him from way closer?
How did the balistae even manage to destroy the other ships at that distance? Those arrows would not have the fucking energy to fly that far, let alone punch through them like that.

Daenny turning into a tyrant and Varys' changing attitude are the only believable things in this episode.
How the fuck is Jamie going to ride across the continent that the others have already crossed halfway to do whatever the fuck he plans on doing for Cersei? Why did he leave her in the first place, if that's all it took to get him back?

So many teleporting characters. The plot magic is really strong with the series at this point...

For your sanity sake dont read the leaked information. Its all true and its so shit I cant even begin to comprehend how could anyone come up with it. There is a small possibility that they filmed a lot of fake endings but so far everything Ive read has come true. Mark my word, if the rest is also true then this will be the most hated ending for a TV show ever.

The penultimate episode was awesome! Really brought it back to the show’s roots which is war is hell, Dorthraki are not role models, and Dany is on a trajectory to destruction. Really what sucked was it wasn’t built up properly because the showrunners spent Season 5-7 making her too sympathetic (although there were some omnimous moments like her dragon pep talk, her burning of prisoners, her burning of the khals, her burning of the Tarlys and Lannister Army). Really drogon should’ve been struck by a rogue scorpion bolt and that sets her off.

Holy fucking shit, the penultimate episode is fucking garbage. I'm still watching it and I'll get into it when I'm done, but christ is it bullshit.

Why the fuck do the Lanister soldiers even wear armour if it can be cut through as if it was butter? Why is the only armour that remotely works in this season fucking plot armour?

EDIT:
fuck this shit. I can't believe how low this show has fallen.

Daeny becoming a tyrant was not a problem from a credibility point of view, but the writing was such shit and rushed, they didn't earn it.
To say nothing of how incompetently stupid she is. Instead of destroying the Red Keep as soon as she cleared the defenses, first she burns a bunch of civilians and surrendering soldiers, wasting time and opportunity to kill Circe.

What the fuck was that bit with Arya in the end and that retarded wanna-be-artistic bit with the horse out of nowhere?
I am sick of artsy and cinematic shit that sacrifices storytelling and worldbuilding so the director can jack off on the screen.

The Clegane fight is really something I don't why everyone was crewming their pants over. It was nothing special, plot armour heavy in that the Mountain's plate armour is at the same time invulnerable to the exact same strikes that killed 4 soldiers with the exact same armour, until it isn't and the Hound can push an arming sword through one side of the plate and out the other.
It's shit.

Circei fucking sucks. I thought that she had fallen into a nihilistic "let the world burn" mode, but apparently, she was just a dumbass who hadn't even considered that she might lose and ends up crying like a little girl when she realizes she fucked herself.

But more than anyone, i fucking hate Jon Snow. He is a useless, worthless coward who spends his time avoiding taking responsibility and acting for the good of anyone becuase of his own inner conflicts.
Ffs, all he had to do is give Daeny something to hold onto in a moment when she felt she lost almost everything and at least try to pull her from the edge. As silly as Daeny the Unbanged is, it is actually what she needed in that moment, but heaven forbid Jon would do something to help or anything at all.
Jon has been a wet fucking sock this entire season. He fucking sucks!

Screw this season.

I love this show, but overall this Season has been really underwhelming. I expect George RR. Martin to do much better once he finishes the books.

Having Dany turn into a tyrant and Jon being the one to stop her was predictable and could have been done much better.

At least the one to gain the kingship over the continent of Westeros was someone you didn´t expect, but still the entire last episode was quite a letdown.

Wonder what MTVCCVC will think of the final Episode.

Btw., where the hell did the Dothraki come from?
I thought they all died in the opening minutes of the fight against the undead.

Looks like someone wrote themselves into yet another corner...

At the risk of pissing people off, when Daeny goes on her spiel about knowing what good is and that she will create a good world, even if she has to kill those who disagree with her on what "good" is, i couldn't hell but comment:
"How very American of you!"

Finished watching the last episode.

What the fuck was that? That was utter shit.

Some peopme are describing this as a "happy" ending, but i am utterly convinced it isn't and the two people who end up being king and queen are fucking evil.

I'll get back to this with more details tommorow, but this is fucking bullshit.
