Game of Thrones: Season 8 Discussion (Spoilers)

Page 20 of Seemed like a lot of callbacks to the first season. Bran creeps me out. Really liked the reconnection of Jon and Arya. I am really curious how the news... 368 comments | 12269 Views | Go to page 1 →

    Not exactly happy with the ending. But it is what it is

    I don't like how they just sent Jon away. He saved the world. What's the point if his history (as a Targaryen)? Why did Bran and Sam mention that he is the true King?

    Jon deserved better than being sent away to the nights watch, which is unnecessary now that the night king is dead.

    And Bran as king? He didnt want to be the Lord of anything because he said he is the three eyed raven, but now he wants to be King?

    It doesnt make sense to me.

    Whats the point of Sansa saying the north will remain its own kingdom, if she is just going to let them banish Jon to the nights watch?

    Thats my biggest issue with the episode. Jon saved the world and no one cared to speak up for him.

    This season alone makes it very hard for me to even want to rewatch the series after knowing how it ends now.

    Such a great series that was absolutely rushed in it's last season.

    Not as terrible as some people tried to make it out to be. I feel like they tried to show that the new generation of leaders really wanted to see change. Jon Snow never tried to be anything other than a man of the people and of honor. He didn't mind bearing the cross, so to speak because he'd never felt entitled regardless of what he had accomplished. Not sure what to think of Bran becoming King but we knew he had to have a big purpose ultimately. Sansa still gets to be a Queen and Arya is going to do her thing.

    I did somewhat expect the dragon to end up looking over Jon at the north wall, never happened.

    Whats the point of Jon being Aegon Targaryen? Just to drive a wedge between him and Dany?

    Im certain Varys sent out letters via Ravens telling everyone Jon was the true King. Did no one care?

    Jon came from a bastard to the true King, the person who saved the world from the Night King, and even from Dany...and they punish him and appoint Bran King????

    No one mentioned Jons place as their true King?

    I havent complained much about this show. But this was hot garbage. If GRRM ends the books like this, he is an idiot.

    Not certain what the point was, except maybe for him to know in his heart it was his choice. Even if he didn't want it or to be king, he still could know or justify to himself why he did what he did. Just my thoughts.

    I dont understand why they built up his history, and then no one even bothered to mention it at the emd when they are picking a new leader. Not Sam, or Sansa, or Arya...no one.

    And Bran said he wasn't a lord of anything, he ismt even Bran Stark anymore. Hes the three eyed raven...but he can be king?

    Dumb.

    It honestly felt like how GRRM would end it. Given how his writing subverts many tropes and traditional expectations of the hero getting what he wants it felt righ for the kind of story that GRRM wanted to tell.

    He apparently told them his general idea of how the show would end. My problem is the fact that they built Jons history up so much in the books and on the show, like he was so important because of who he is...and its never mentioned when they are picking a new leader. Im not saying he had to be their King, but shouldnt it have been an option????

    I mean he did say he'd consulted them on how he had envisioned the ending. Now it's interesting as to whether or not he may deviate a great deal based on fans reactions tonight.

    GRRM is a colossal jerk, I doubt he will change it for fan service.

    This is similar to my issue with the night king. All that build up, 1 episode resolution.

    The narrative was strong, but letting these writers get them from point A to point B with minimal supervision has been the flaw of the show since they ran out of books.

    So basically the problem has been shoddy writing to move everyone to their ending pointsnas fast as possible since these writers wanted out for a Star Wars film.
