      I'm sorry but no way in hell are the books going to have the exact same ending so please don't drag George into this.

        Yhea am still angry that the tv show could have gotten rid of the fact that jon was ageon targaryen and still have´d the same story whitout any diffrence. Does anyone than the starks tyrion even now that jon is a targaryen?

          I agree with you so much that we couldn’t feel the weight of Dani being killed.

            D&D half assed it so much it’s disguising. The Knight King was a dead end. Cersi was a dead end. Jaime Lancaster was a dead. The Prince that was promised was a dead end. I’m so frustrated with this stupid story. It’s bullshit! Now D&D have admitted that they weren’t qualified... They should have let someone else continue the story instead of rushing the story for the Star Wars money but now they’re not even making Star Wars! LOL

              No, but the thing that bothers me MOST, STILL, to this day- is that they have CLEARLY built it up, over 8 seasons for when Danaerys is trying to hype Jon up, when she’s telling him that HE KNOWS, that HE SEES IT TOO, for his response to be ‘ I know nothing’

              They even leave the damn pause for it
              It makes me so stressed

                You guys were all about this season till everybody else started hating on it.
                You're posers and douche bags.

                    you cant call it a George problem because Georges characters are different to the shows, yes George is ending it that way but his characters are more suited for that ending

                      GOT was like an exam you were acing all the way through up until the last 10 minutes where you run out of time and rush the final questions.

                        With this show, I'm not upset with where most of the characters end up. It's just that D&D so blatantly just wanted the characters to go a certain place but didn't care enough to actually spend the time developing them. They would also completely make characters say and do things completely out of character. JAIME.

                          The Night King should have won the Game of Thrones. Talk about breaking the wheel.

                            If she burned the city to stop the armies from fighting a bloody battle that would have made sense but the army won the city sooooooooo

                              Just finished rewatching this to see if I felt any better about it but no, it's still horrific. I do agree with your opinion of Emilia Clarke owning this season, she was amazing. She is the only reason Season 8 is worth watching because despite her character being assassinated she sold the role. Would love to see her win her Emmy nomination but D&D had better not win jack for their travesty of a script.

                                The only way this Dany story works is if everything we saw was presented from Tyrion and Jon's POV. Dany burned the city after she'd won. After! I repeat, After! Can anyone give me an answer to why it was after? That is done on purpose by the show. And no, she was not mad or delusional, or corrupted by power.
                                I hope people understand that SHE HAD TO DO IT. Cersei truly left her no choice! I very much hope more and more people understand this and then realize that what Jon did was a huge mistake.

                                        I’m gonna be honest throughout watching this show I’d have never expected for Daenerys to compared to Thanos by the end.

                                              I’m fine with Jon being forced back to the nights watch assuming it’s the ending for the books as well because I kinda just assumed that or it feels implied that Jon will become the next mance rayder type king beyond the wall I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s the route George ends with instead of it being implied but just confirmed that Jon will become the king beyond the wall

                                                Davos had a good idea. The Unsullied starting their own house--built with former servants, the poor, slaves from the islands--why would that be "stupid"?  When the Unsullied finally "died off", their people could elect a president--OMG what a notion!

                                                    Monkey, you are way too generous with your compliments for this show. I get that you love the show, I did also. But jesus, the writing the past 2 seasons has been horrendous. Yes, I love the cinematography, the acting has been excellent (never blame the actors, they did their jobs always), and the music is great, but this writing is so sloppy and so inconsistent. I mean, what the fuck, man (not you, Monkey)? What the fuck have Weiss and Benioff done to my favorite show?

                                                          Thank you for this. I'm so tired of seeing everyone gang up on the writers and whine about how it ended. George RR Martin's hands were all over this and they didnt just pull names out of a hat when deciding the ending. The ending made sense and was only subpar because it was crammed into 6 episodes which is something we all should have seen coming. My biggest complaint is the lack of Night King development, which brings me back to the 6 episode issue. YT & twitter needs to chill

                                                                                      Dany: You BELONG* to me now. Its your duty to give me the truth.
                                                                                      Messandei: Yes YOUR GRACE lying is a great offense.
                                                                                      Dany: Im taking you to war. You could die.
                                                                                      Messandei: Valor margolis

                                                                                      Mossador "You put a knife in my hand and told me to kill the masters. I did this for you."
                                                                                      Dany: There are no more masters.
                                                                                      Mossador: Then who lives in the great pyramid???

                                                                                      Dany: I told Dario to execute all the masters.
                                                                                      Jorah: Herding the masters into pens and slaughtering them by the thousands is also treating men like beasts. The slaves you freed, brutality is all they've ever known

                                                                                      Dany: My enemies are all in Kings Landing. What should I do?
                                                                                      Jon: If you use dragons to burn cities and melt castles, you're no different. You're just more of the same.

                                                                                      Dario: You're a conqueror, not a Queen. You weren't meant to sit on a throne. The people of Kings Landing have no idea what's coming for them.

                                                                                      Hizdar: Your Grace politics is the art of Compromise.
                                                                                      Dany: Im a Queen, not a politician.
                                                                                      Hizdar: Yes, but its easier to rule over happy subjects.
                                                                                      Dany: How many times must I say NO, before you get it!?

                                                                                      HOW MANY MORE CLUES DO YALL NEED???? These aren't even clues... Its the fucking story from the second season. You all just saw what you wanted to see. If dany were unattractive, overweight and had warts on her face... none of you would have rooted for her.
                                                                                      And keep in mind that Merren slipped into to famine and illness under her reign. That is why the sons of the Harpy revolted. I think she burnt Kings Landing merely because its easier, to just build your vision, than to compromise or negotiate.

And then she gives the Dothraki a speech similar to the one in 8/6.
