I enjoyed "watching it"

I'm treating it like a marvel film, terribly predictable story now but it was visually pretty/entertaining

What happened to the subtlety of this show.

Equal parts good and shit. It looked great. I didn't believe the Dany going mad thing though, because they just didn't show convincingly how it happened. It's a shame Martin didn't finish the novels in time, that's for sure.

I'd have preferred it if they'd waited until Martin had finished the novels before trying to finish up the series themselves.

Danaerys' story is now clearly an analogue of the application of socialist morality.

I actually feel they ..didn't end it as badly as they could have

It was probably one of the better episodes of season 8 (that's hardly saying much)

Bit too happy though, felt quite out of character, I was getting LOTR vibes

we didnt even get to see any conversation about cersei being dead & bran is still bran when he gets told hes king

I did like the scene with tyrion & the others having their first meeting but i couldnt tell if alot of time had passed or not, like isnt most of the roof not still caved in? are the walls fixed now or what?

also i had a moment of excitement when tyrion went to find jamie & he came to the mountain of bricks & he saw light at the top & i thought 'omg theres a light what is it?!' ...oh..no ..its just from the sun

Eh, I don't mind the idea of Dany being the last big bad and Jon having to be the one to kill her (won't get toasted by dragonfire) and then being exiled. It's the way it was done. I mean I could write a poorly structured essay on all the wrong things. At least the last two episodes weren't as bad as episode four. I feel like they had a basic outline, and then they came up with ideas for all the cool things they wanted to do - like have a zombie dragon take down the wall for example - and then they kind of spliced it all together with no real respect for what had gone before or what made sense. I wouldn't say it was bad, just kind of ... unsatisfying.

But I kind of lost my hopes right from the start of season 7. Why did the people not rise up against Cersei? I thought she was going to be in a really sticky spot. I was all excited at the end of season 6. Then when season 8 started and Jon Snow was off saying - no one is allowed to say anything nasty about the finale because everyone has worked so hard on it, I thought, oh no, it's going to be shit. At least it wasn't too bad. I guess it's much harder to end a series with so many characters and so many different threads. Martin probably doesn't know how to do it either.

I think episode 5 was one of the best, but it needed more episodes than that sad conclusion

I was hoping for a more dramatic ending, it seemed to me like any tension was lost with the death early in the episode. I'm not that angry about it though, won't be signing any petitions.

I still can't get over what a hash they made of the ending and season 8. It's true that with the writing and story there are so many dead ends and non sequiturs you become numb to it, you stop even expecting any of it to make sense.

^ Getting 500k an episode you would think he probably has a fair bit of time to get more work before the bills mount up!

I can SO picture him in Emmerdale, complaining about winter coming,
Or referring to his character's mother-in-law as a right 'dragon' (whilst giving a sly wink to camera)
Oh, how the mighty fall,
