    But that ending also says that everyone deserves to die because their not perfect, I do agree that everyone is extravagant, but some of them who weren't still suffered because their nor perfect. I just don't really agree with that ending, but it is just a theory...

    And instead of a meaningful ending that teaches us a lesson, we get one that is too rushed and makes no sense.

    This isn’t wrong, and I really do think out of all the storylines that was most betrayed was definitely the Army of the Dead and the Night King. However the story that they went with was a good one if you really think of it, but it was just executed poorly. We still have hope in Martians version though. Pray we get some satisfaction with that.

    I assume this is how Martin wants to end the books, especially considering white walkers are representative of global warming. It’s too bad that by the time the last book comes out, global warming will already wipe us all out

    The Night King should've been the last main villian that would've pushed the lions, wolves, and dragons into hell's door until they worked together to fight him. The bittersweet ending would've been the destruction of everything and the survivors rebuilding a new kingdom. Samwell would've had the most plot armor because someone needs to tell the history why the 7 kingdoms were destroyed in the first place.

    unfortunately it was lysa that killed jon arryn and sweet robin might be petyr baelish's child

    I thought Lysa and Petyr killed Aryn?? Did Lysa literally admit to it before he shoved her down the moon door???? Cercei and Jaime didn’t actually do that??

    Wish you could have done one on the Peter baelish =not dead= bravos theory
    It sounded completely idiotic but would have been a brilliant twist that could've turned the finale into epic and fit well enough to make the writing intentional and almost as brilliant as the former twists. I never liked baelish but he may have been the one character believable enough to answer all the unsure narrative twists in the narrow cinematic timeframes. Even if we would disagree I know you'd find some parallels interesting.

    ASOIAF will never end like this. It’s meant to be bittersweet and this ending is too cynical for that to happen.

    Great Conclusion. Would have been a much better ending. But I would still let some people survive and win over nothing. Have kings landing demolished and have a last stand in Dorne where the dead are the defeated, but not before they leave almost no one. So no Pride is left cause there is nothing left to be king of.

    Arya doesn't have to reject her identity as a Stark. The whole point of that training was to make her understand she is a Stark.

    The Lannisers did not poison John Aryn, His wife, Lysa did.

    The Lannisters don’t poison John arryn, lysa arryn does because little finger asks her to

    To be honest, that would have been a waaaaay better ending since the curent ending ruined the whole rollercoaster buildup that went for 10 years up and then went down for 2 hours. If that ending would have happen then it would actually be a decent searies.

  • Stephanie L

    Honestly, much as I get how this ending would be thematically resonant... would people *genuinely* rather to have spent all of those seasons getting invested in these characters, only to have every one of them killed off by ice zombies in the end? I just can't grasp how that would actually be emotionally satisfying in any way. Sure, maybe it would make a strong point, but I think it WOULD feel incredibly nihilistic by its very nature. Especially when there IS someone who's spent the better part of the show doing everything he can to GET people to get past their pride and come together around the white walker threat: Jon! That was precisely his goal since the moment he came to know about the white walkers, so to have it all be for naught would just feel like "welp... guess that failed." Which, again, could be true to Game of Thrones' generally dark nature I suppose, but I for one wouldn't be able to get past the nihilism of it all. That's not a story I would want to invest in, however "realistic and gritty" it might be.
    Nah, I'm generally happy with the overall beats of how things ended, I really am- it was just that the writing itself in getting there was terrible! But most of the endings do make sense for the characters' arcs (Jon having to make a painful choice between love and what's right, Dany struggling between her good intentions and her worst impulses and her worst impulses ultimately winning out, Sansa having grown into a smart and capable ruler, etc.). Bran becoming King is really the only one that did come out of nowhere a bit, but again, it's not like I have some huge thing against it in theory- if the books end with Bran as King but actually build it up properly, I can be cool with it. So yeah, I actually WANT the books to end on the same beats for everyone, because I like the ending, I just want to see it with writing done *well* !
