    When Tyrion walked off alone while King's Landing was still being sacked my friends and I looked at each other like, "Uh. He's still supposed to be smart, right?" Then he reached the underneath of the Red Keep before Jon Snow could make it to Danaerys and we were like, "Oh this isn't a serious episode okay."

    TY for your review. I felt bad for the entire crew. it is not on them. Once showrunners cut GRRM source material down to certain storylines/arcs, they had no idea how to continue those characters once original book material ran out. I truly believe they knew they were out of their element (no original writing skill set) so time to wrap up the show and move on. Then the consequence, the S1-S4 great dialogue ( almost word from word from the books) turned into battle scenes/CGI effects (fan service) and script word count became less and less. Smart characters turned into idiots and went against everything we knew about them. After Hold the door episode, the magical/fantasy feel of the story peaked then disappeared. What was the point of the prophecies, wight walkers, children of the forest, and three eye raven? The story turned into subverting expectations which was, in the end, a ridiculous excuse for "we cannot write meaningful, cohesive dialogue" to continue good character arcs and great storytelling. Lord of the Rings rip-offs, the Mockingjay S8E6 CGI wingspan effect. I don't think D&D really cared about the show, fans, actors, any of it. The word Hubris comes to mind. Oh, yeah and D&D have submitted S8E6 for Emmy consideration for best writing and directing, LMFAO.

    I don't buy what they did to Danaerys either. She turned on a dime for the most silly reasons. The show had shrunk in size to a handful of characters and so we're supposed to believe she's going to freak out because a couple of people aren't into her being the ruler............ ridiculous. It would have had to be the whole kingdom to make her decide that if they wouldn't love her, then "let it be fear then". Even with her turning (which I don't believe) the better ending was for Danaerys to live and kill Jon, Tyrion and then took on the other Starks. The ending as it currently stands is full of cheese apart from Danaerys dying.

    It would have been great if they showed her descending into madness in a couple of or a single episode...maybe they would have called it The Mad Queen episode...rather than just showing the outcomes of it... They should've shown all thoes times when she was not eating and slowly descending into madness...

    Finally! Someone finally makes a statement about how Bran is the one who caused the most murders in the entire series. Show Daenerys didn’t really kill those people, Bran did by doing nothing the whole season. Viserion and Rhaegal could be alive, many of the northmen, all of King’s Landing, etc,. He actually knew that Daenerys would save Jon who was capturing one of the others to convince Cersei (which he knew wouldn’t work), knew Viserion would die because of it with the Night King using him to destroy the wall, causing the battle to start earlier, Bran also knew that the negotiations with Cersei would fail, he knew Rhaegal would die “because Daenerys ‘forgot’ about the iron fleet”, and Missendei would die (who is only supposed to be, what, 13 at most?), and that Daenerys would burn King’s Landing, causing Jon to kill her which broke his heart (I think?), and that he would end up the ruler of Westeros... also, the last Three Eyed Raven lived for an extremely long time, so how long will Bran’s rule last? Will it ever end?

And no I have not watch it. I am still will like the early seasons but that it sadly. It's like Seeing The Simpsons go downhill or Happy Days. Things like that happened.

    Did I miss the episode where Daenerys descended into madness? Last time I saw her she was helping Jon save the North and the next thing you know, Bam, she's the mad Queen. They did a good job writing the show, but the completely failed the last 2 episodes. The writers took the Daenerys fans and slapped us in our faces for loving a Character that was so obviously insane from the beginning. No, I'm not buying it. I love Game of Thrones and it's probably the greatest show I'll ever see, but Daenerys Stormborn Targareyen was a kind, warm and intriguing character from day 1. Daenerys will always, always be the Queen I would fight for from this day until my last day. Great video bro, I completely agree. 👍

    Tyrion sets up two trials by combat for himself and he doesn't even consider proposing it for Jon Snow.... I mean wouldn't it be great if the show ended with a Jon Snow-Grey worm combat trial? And why the fuck Grey Worm even survives? He is propably one of the dullest characters of the show....

    You don’t get it. Dany was thinking Big leagues, while so many of you are playing Tee ball. It was about making a statement to the world. Her mercy will not be used as a weakness against her. When the entire world heard of what she did at Kings Landing they would obey out of fear and fall in line. Think: Tarkin Doctrine from Star Wars. However it’s not a Death Star it’s a Dragon. Dany actually understood what it would take to rule the entire world, and we ain’t talking sheep herders and peasants, she would have to go against Blood Mages, Necromancers, and the scariest shit in the darkest corners of the realm. Meanwhile you guys are all crying over one city. The Bloodstone Emperor gives zero fucks about a city, which is why he was able to control a Empire. Because people like him and Dany think on a global scale. As I said, it’s the Big Leagues. Top tier villains that make Cersei look like a little girl having a temper tantrum.

    Episode 5 was supposed to make us hate “evil Dant”, but it just made me like Daenerys more than I already did. I was so done with the season and what they were doing with her character. She was risking her life and dragons in order to save the living, but proceeds to kill a million innocent people because she was angry/frustrated? How in the world was that foreshadowed? She always stood up for the common people-the abused, the helpless. I don’t mind her going “mad” at all. I would actually love to see it, but in order for it to work she had to hurt innocent people in season 7 or something, not snap on innocent people over halfway through the final season. She was basically a cartoon villain and it was so disrespectful to the character as well as the actress who portrayed her. Shame 🔔

    I didn't watch the show--It takes a great show to make me devote an hour plus a week to watch. I'm delighted that so many people have dedicated so much creative energy to the rewrite the failures of Weiss and Benihof. On the whole the net effect will probably be positive.

    No one seems to understand "Subverting Expectations" where the unexpected happens. GOT would have been even better had Tony Stark's Iron Man shown up and killed Cersei Lannister & Daenerys Targaryen. No one would expect that at all with masterful "Subverting Expectations". .... Also, Drogon realized Daenerys was killed by a knife, so he destroyed the army of knives disguised as a throne. .... /s

    Episode 5 was the ending episode for me and the writers blew it at that point. The death of Daenerys had to be. The best part of S8 E6 was the Dragon "Drogon' who stoled the death scene and finality. The Destruction of the Iron Throne was also a fitting end. One more High point was the very end when the Kings consul was left scrabbling over more mundane but real governing issue that any leadership has to deal with, sewers, military, education so on and so forth.. I give a disappoint 5 to the this episode and a 4 to S8E5. The death of Cersei and Jaime a should have been at the hands of the "Hound", Jon Snow or Arya Stark or a combination of the Hound (Sandor Clegane) and Arya Stark.

    I always imagined this season to end dramatic... Like when the '' Mighty '' undead army charged, they ran over everybody... EVERYBODY would be dead... no Clegane , NO Brienne... Tormund or Jaime... Daenerys would die and become undead queen... Then they would march and take over the whole Westeros and that LONG night and '' Winter '' they knocked me over the head with it for a decade would finally happen. But there will be a funny ending to it... like Jon being on the other side of the sea with Davos , got there only the Gods know how. And Jon is fishing and drinking Rum... and Davos stops by out of nowhere.... Davos - So... to make sure , this is kinda it right ? We lost Westeros to the Night King or am I dreaming wide awake ? Jon - Yeah ! The bad guys totally won... since we're gonna be here for awhile have a sip of Rum and try to fish our dinner. NO Cersei and her pirate boyfriend as final boss.... Bleeaah !

    Oh, and also: the petition isn't stupid. No one expects a reproduction with other writers, least of all the people who started the petition. It is a message to HBO and to Dumb&Dumber that they suck and that the final season of their show was awful and an insult to the audience. Maybe they'll pay attention and not do this sort of thing again. How else are we to let them know that they suck? By making KOreporter videos that are watched by 31 000 people? It's too small for them to notice, and will get dismissed as fringe stuff they don't need to listen to. Millions of viewers demanding that they write the season over again with proper writers, though, they can not ignore. This was not the response HBO was hoping for, clearly. And they have noticed it. And, with respect, I doubt they have noticed your videos. At this point consumer activism is all we have left with entertainment in general. The producers have all the money and all the power. All we can do is scream loudly when they serve us shit. So that is what we need to do then. Anything else would be irresponsible.

    The NK destroyed one castle, so obviously everything will continue exactly as before. No one south of Winterfell even saw so much as a single wight, lost no troops fighting the undead and their economies are perfectly intact. So why should anything change there? Except I guess because the idiotic script forces them to. No one at their stupid summit meeting would have supported Bran, or Sansa who had lost her army. If this had been written by GRRM, the Vale, the Iron Islands or Riverrun would have seized the opportunity to conquer the north from her. Dorn would have declared independence obviously, and possibly others. At least rather than being ruled by some wooden unknown in a wheelchair. Nor would everyone instantly have trusted Tyrion. It's all just such garbage, and it seems very obvious to me that nothing whatsoever had been thought through in any detail. Like just the few problems listed above. They forced everyone and everything towards a predetermined ending, and nothing made sense because they didn't build to any of it. Sansa was supposed to be queen, because STRONG WAMEN, despite having done essentially nothing since S5 to show that she was even qualified to rule. One scene they did when the foppish girl from S1-4 suddenly knew more about armor than the smiths of Winterfell. Unconvincing pandering, and now she's the bestest queen ever. Shit writing! But the biggest problem is that in ruining the antagonist like they did they made the entire story utterly meaningless. They wanted another Batmam moment for the cliche they turned Arya into and they needed to rush to the final boss, Cercei. So off with the NK's head, here! And as a consequence he turned out to be so puny that the entire story was rendered pointless. Shit happens, people suck, nothing changes, the end! That's the story of A Game of Thrones.

    Drogon should have (killed or just taken) Jon Snow and taken him with him wherever he is going with Daenerys. Drogon would have never let Jon live or never let him be separated from Daenerys. Imo. Jon and Daenerys should have died together or lived together. Drogon taking off with Jon as well as Daenerys would have been EPIC. I honestly thought would end like that for Daenerys or Jon both or neither dying. I totally do not trust Bran as King. It IS NOT BRAN. That is clear. Giving the episode a 4 is very fair because the cinematography, the special effects, the costume, the acting, everything was wonderful but the writing. Even the actors made some of the worst It still didn't make sense and please please, please explain what was bittersweet and why it felt like pure bitter in my mouth We were lied to again. I didn't see anything bittersweet. I have given myself a few weeks to see if I can move on and forget this TV series and books that has been a huge part of my life for years. So I have a right to feel the way I feel. I dont need Sofie Turner telling me I'm disrespectful because I have the highest regard for Game of Thrones cast and ESPECIALLY the crew, everyone involved from makeup to weapons, cgi, wardrobes, from the people who cared for animals to the lady with the lunch cart on set. It was a monumental task. The Daenerys plot line, her great story was assinated. Mangled into a big hot mess. Jmo.

    Can somebody please tell me how FUCKING BRON got on the kings small council? Like of all people, BRON, becomes the new MASTER OF COIN. The same guy who back in season 2 needed to have the concept of an interest rate explained to him. The same guy who just pointed a crossbow at Tyrion, broke his nose, threatened to murder him and his brother, and extorted them for yet another house, title and land. But yeah he's the new master of coin......okay......sure.....
