    Cat Stark got all she deserved. Her eldest son would still be alive if she had treated Jon with respect. Instead, she ensured none of her male kids wanted a bastard for their wife to hate. the books anyway.

  • Kimberly Elliott

    Jaime and Cersei didn't poison Jon Arryn; Lysa did.
    Littlefinger didn't kill Joffrey; Lady Olenna did.
    C'mon, Matpat. I expect more from you.

    This is a million times better than how it ended
    seriously it was so disappointing and the final episode was filled with sooo many cringy moments.
    "Lets have democracy" - everyone laughs
    Tyrion's speech about Bran - quite cringe-worthy
    Sansa being Queen in the North - actually that was okay. She deserved to be queen but she just decided to have the north be independent without asking King Bran the Broken
    The Battle of Winterfell
    it was pretty cool in a lot of parts but had horrible battle plans. They immediately sacrificed the Dothraki in a suicide run without effective weapons (Melisandre showed up unannounced they wanted to just send them like that). The catapults were OUTSIDE the walls and The Night King's death was just a waste. They built him up so much only to be killed immediately. Also Theon should've killed him if he must've died in that episode instead of the final like I thought he would've.
    Varys's death was stupid he deserved better

    Um is it really even a theory if in the first 5 minutes and in the title you claim that it should happen but probably won't and also mess up who did what in the series and in the end give a half baked idea with pretty bad evidence that goes against the authors own words saying that he wants something bittersweet?

  • Harmless Panda
    Harmless Panda 9 days ago

    PLEASE!! Do a game of thrones theory about Bran being the real villian of the show. That he saw how things would end and did nothing to stop it because he was evil, and let it all happen to begin with. So he would get the crown.

    Honestly I know the shows over, but I think it would’ve been cool if the white walkers went and brought back all the important characters from past seasons (Joffrey, Bolton, heck even Ned) and made them undead warriors, for once last great battle

    5:30 ... The Lannisters didn't poison the hand of the King, it was Little Finger and the crazy lady from the Vale who poisoned the Hand of the king and made it look like the Lannisters did it.

  • Zero Wolf
    Zero Wolf 16 days ago

    The children of the forest aren't innocent either. I feel that they also fall under these rules. They tried to defend "Their" home by creating white walkers creating a war. Twice.
    When bran and them arrived at the 3 eyed raven, they were throwing bombs seemingly at the white walkers, but in reality they were throwing them at brans party because they hate humans. (Ok, I started to watch too much bridge4 on youtube one night.)
    If the last one would have thrown the bomb at bran - in a selfish act like they were doing before, vs blowing herself up with the zombies, it wouldn't have given them enough time to escape. If she would have stayed prideful humans would have died without brans help - which you would think is what she actually wanted, but you know... as humans watching a show where humans want to triumph, it just wont happen. So she sacrificed herself giving up her pride and letting us, the audience have a human victory ending.
    But hey, thats just MY theory. hahahaha. *shrugs* I don't care that much to argue back and forth on this. take it as you will.

    Hey MatPat, can you try and find out how strong the fire from the dragon is? If it’s able to make things explode on impact and melt cinder blocks then it should be strong. How strong would it be compared to a real life grenade explosion or even a nuke?

  • PrissyNeko

    Honestly though? That would have been a far better ending than what we got. I would have been far more satisfied with the Battle of Winterfell ending with only a handful of characters surviving, having to flee, and the rest of the remaining episodes being that karma comeuppance coming to fruition. It would have been the worst case scenario ending, but like you pointed out in this video, it would have fitted the themes of the story way more than what we got.

  • Ian Thompson
    Ian Thompson 20 days ago

    Man I wish that the writers stuck with the Night King ending because this shows that this makes so much sense. I still don’t think it’s the worst ending in tv but I still feel they missed a golden opportunity to make a truly bleak and heartfelt message. A message that says, “the evil that you should fear is here; look past your pride and pay attention.”

    When even in the books the white walkers weren’t so much of a threat. I feel in the show they hyped them up to just give them an ending that was really just a “Sorry you wasted eight years of your life”

    I believe that the White walkers will win. No one cares about the real threat. The characters are at each other's throats. Every single character is untrustable. So the White walkers will win.
