    To be fair GoT does the big thing in the second to last episode being the BIG episode in every season and the last episode is the setup for the next plot thread episode.

    I agree with you that the way you rearranged the events and details would have made the final episodes much better. But still gotta say, that can only point out that the directors are complete idiots who couldn't even do that. But no way that sort of story turn would justify the whole show. I tried so hard to love and find things to love the ending, but I just couldn't. It was so bad I wish I never watched the show, ever! Now I have to remember it as one of the most disappointing show ever!

    All Queen Daenerys had to do was destroy the Red Keep. Kill Cersei, Kill everyone there... problem solved. Enslave the rest of city whatever.. Crappy writing is crappy writing.

    The writing decisions made in this season were obviously made very quickly instead of properly developed and blatantly for the reason of keeping it as cheap as possible. It reminds me of the ending of Falling Skies which was a great show up until the very end when they went for the cheapest and easiest way to end it.
    I wouldn't say GoT was a great show before the end though, it was mostly too slow paced and uninteresting, relying on edgy sex and brutal murders to keep people watching, except for some moments here and there (like the episode you mentioned where dude fought The Mountain) that were interesting. And the world is a poorly developed.
    The best fantasy is in novels, Hollywood just hasn't learned how to do fantasy properly yet (with the exception of Peter Jackson).

    Episode 3 was absolutely NOT a well shot episode. It was a cinematic mess. The audience couldn't make out what was even happening most of the time. It was a blur of movements and silhouettes, and that's just the visual elements- the writing is also extremely pathetic. Literally nobody is in command of the living army at any time.
    The most retarded part was when the Dothraki rushed in and everyone else just stood there watching as they got cut down. Why would everyone stand there watching?! There are literally no tactics being implemented at all. The Writers made that awful decision because they wanted to establish the threat of the White Walkers early on, but the threat had already been established long ago in the story so not only was that establishment unnecessary, it made all of the characters look like simpletons who don't even understand the basics of battle tactics.
    The proper way (and this isn't advanced tactics- it's VERY basic) to make use of a berserker force like the Dothraki would be to send them in then the rest of the forces support them. But it shouldn't have even came to that because the defenders should have been making full use of siege defenses rather than trying to match a far superior force on even ground.
    I lost respect for every character in a leadership position in that army when I saw that.

    Snow’s betrayal is abudantly divorced from the Hero’s Journey for Daen or Jon, that is the fundamental problem in the opinion of mine. If they had actually done their job, the entire seasons would be bought by someone who stopped watching after the first episode... There were better stories to read and watch than one with B list villains killing children, for the point of view of mine. My dad loved it and has watched it since the, and I got to hear about things second hand... So, the most emotion felt is sympathy and empathy for my father, who was robbed of an actual 8th season; Instead of crappy fan fiction from uninterested b’list writers/directors hired to write about a close to a show that which they failed to care...
    This is like when Betsy Braddock became Lady Mandarin, except Daeni didn’t get race’body changed from British into a Japanese woman.

    Snoke was nothing like the king in GoT. I challenge anybody to show me anything in either of Snoke's two film appearances that built him up to be the biggest, baddest baddie ever or that he was any different than Palpatine in the OT. Nobody cried when Palpatine got killed by his apprentice. So what makes Snoke getting killed by his apprentice worse? If people had expectations for Snoke based on things outside the films, that's on them, not the script. That's just what you get for fantasizing about fan theories and expecting a film to abide your desires rather than telling its own story. All that theorizing put the filmmakers in a no-win situation. They already caught flack for "just copying" the original trilogy, but then they get flack for not copying the OT and having the apparent villain get thrown off a balcony by his suddenly-redeemed apprentice in the third film. I have yet to see a single criticism of the new trilogy that doesn't either apply equally to the OT ("they got the physics all wrong" or "too much comedy") or amount to just a whiny, "I didn't get what I wanted" (Snoke wasn't actually Darth Platypus or Rey wasn't Han and Chewie's secret love-child).
    The king in GoT, however, was very much built up to be the Omega Man destined to lay waste to the world. That's all I heard in the couple seasons I watched, "winter is coming". I got tired of the weak storytelling early, so I was spared the disappointment. But I can easily see why fans of the show were utterly, universally stunned by the finale.

I dont wanna burn all the innocent momma. whhhhhhhyyyyy? this is why its so fucking stupid. dont defend it.

    No. You don't understand. The final episode never needed action or the climax.. it could have ended with a crescendo without stakes like LOTR. You present a good case but ultimately a story doesn't need to follow your path. It needs to impact and weave into a worthy conclusion.

  • walter white

    It's not about plot, story, entertainment or characters in modern movies and TV. What is absolutely paramount and the main priority is forcing toxic feminism onto the audience as much as is humanly possible.
    All women *must* be strong, empowered, superior, supreme badass independent wahman that certainly don't need no man. All men (especially those nasty white heterosexual ones) must be portrayed as weak, inferior, stupid, evil, bullies and cowardly with no redeeming features at all and many times all character traits of Trump thrown in as a bonus prize.
    The females will always be inspirational and courageously brave. The wahman will either take a defiant stand or liberate herself and her fellow sisterhood from toxic masculinity, white male privilege, the patriarchy and also gender wage gaps!! She will be a complete Mary Sue character that is completely perfect in every single regard just like Rey and Captain Marvel combined. She will have no character development or growth and the movie will have no story at all but it will have is lots and and lots of feminism, misandry, gender identity politics and degradation of boys and men at every available opportunity.
    As we all know TV Shows and Movies must be about how great, superior and lovely all women are cos they have a vagina and how bad, awful and inherently evil all boys and men are because they have a penis. Thats all that matters folks!!! When it comes to entertainment these days it's clearly of the upmost importance that we send the message that all white heterosexual men are bad and all women are so perfectly strong and amazing! And we must ram this down everyones throats every 5 seconds over and over like a mantra until everyone believes it.
    Bring one gender down and destroy it to elevate and empower the other gender. Because thats what *EQUALITY* is all about!!!!
    And anybody that doesn't agree with the feminist indoctrination and propaganda thats *not* even being carefully concealed anymore is just clearly a Misogynist, a Nazi or a basement dwelling troll thats scared of *strong empowered women*

    Maybe... If Jon was fighting the knight king, but was actually distracting him from the assassin who ends up killing the king, then Jon dies from his wounds. This could've led to Dany becoming more and more bitter through the next 5 episodes -- with other backstabs and culminates with her destroying everything.

    I think if you recently got into Game of thrones and binged 8 seasons at once, you wouldn't notice that the quality of the show really started going downhill after GRRM left. Season 5 and 6 were still great, but the strong dialogue and character development wasn't there anymore. All of the 'clever' characters, such as Tyrion, Varys, and Little finger suddenly had nothing to do or say. People were pretty forgiving of this because like I said, GRRM wasn't assisting, and the show was still really good! And then season 7 came along, and virtually EVERYONE noticed that the quality had gone down. But again, the battle scenes kinda saved it and we all just assumed they were saving their efforts for the final season. We don't even need to go into how and why season 8 sucked. ALL of it was awful. The bitch fest between Sansa and Dany, Jamie's arc, Tyrion basically being resorted to a 2nd Davos, Vary's doing nothing, Jon having 2 lines the entire show. The only thing that could have saved this train wreck was if Bran ended up being a villain all along. It's the only thing that would have made some sense.

    True Betrayal: Spending 16 minutes on a video just to say "D&D was so focused on copy/pasting the books to their movie that they didn't bother paying attention to any of the character/story arcs, resulting in them making up conflicting shit in a rush to end the movie and their misery of having to make sure everything actually fits together."

    The problem with subverting expectation is when you promise one thing and then don't pay it off. Basically if you promise the world and then hand them a pile of shit, you can't really be shocked to find out that your surprise twist doesn't go over well. On the other hand, if you go beyond, that's when it works. Think of it this way, make someone think that for their birthday you're going to give them a jalopy because, hey, they need a car. So here comes the day, you lead them into a car lot to hand them their car, past this really nice new car towards this old beat up junker. You pull out the key dongle, press the button to unlock the car... and the new car behind them beeps.

    I know a LOT of people who followed GOT. They all kept encouraging me to watch it. I told them that the books the series was based upon was cranking out episodes faster than the books are being written and the show would eventually take over the story. I did not want to follow a story that would fizzle out. When I walk into a room where they rage-hate the end, the shut up and change the subject, glaring at me like I made it happen.

    Also Jon being brought back served no purpose what so ever, and his purpose of being brought back is talked about quite a bit but never paid off. Also dany was always the character fighting for the civilians, then they last minute to do a complete character assassination and have her do a complete 180 on her established character just for shock value. I’m sure this is the way it was suppose to end for the most part but the set up is non existent

    GoT S8 was unbelievably idiotic & felt rushed like hell, then crammed into a jar of fail, and thrown off a cliff to smash on the rocks below. It was so bad, I am glad I did not purchase the series - which has been rendered unrewatchable (unless you pretend S8 never happened). The shallow, uncharacteristic, S8 ruined GoT for good. Its pathetic. Its Disney Star Wars pathetic. I blame Disney for ruining GoT by hiring the 2 shallow show runners (revealed as talentless writers when the real novel-level writer is absent. They run off to start on the next (fail) Disney Star Wars trilogy. Not even gonna waste my time on that disaster in the making.

  • Jonathon Wisnoski
    Jonathon Wisnoski 15 days ago

    I don't know man. I think such a character heavy show like GoT just might of needed an epilogue episode. I don't think you could cram the ending of the final climactic battle, and the "what happens next" for every single character in the same episode. I think for one there is too much of a disconnect. You cannot have the biggest explosions 1 minute from the most sober scene in the entire show. And secondly, there was just too much material to cover.
    They had the climactic ending on the second to last episode, then the epilogue. This is how they do it in novels, I don't see why it would not work for GoTs. You cannot compare this to Breaking Bad with it's 2 important characters (who were both there at the end scene together).
    I think the night king went down in a fine way. You do a good job of explaining why it was possibly the only way that made sense, he is just too powerful to beat in a stand up fight. Honestly, they probably needed to do something important with the assassin they spent this long training. Talking about the assassin, what was up with giving her a pale horse and a burning hatred for dragons/dragon ladies, and then the show promptly forgetting her?
    We are clearly missing a scene where the dragon lady realizes the the peasants don't like her, to give her a reason to kill them.
    Bran could not be king. as he is some undead nature monster that hardly cares or is even aware of anything around him.

    I've already seen soo many videos about the last season, about how it should have ended, about really simple corrections which would still work more... And literally, all of those videos managed better than the actual season did. Which is so sad. UScliprs manage to make it incredibly better with just a bit of editing than what the showrunners did with tons of money and a huge amount of talented people around. It's pretty sad thinking about it - how such big production value went completely sideways only for two incompetent writers and the fact that apparently nobody supervised them to tell them it's shit. It is like a tutorial for how to destroy 10 years of built up and work of hundreds of competent people in 6 episodes.
    The point is, how can somebody, even manage to make it so absurdly bad? I mean, they were working on it for 10 years, one would expect them to know their stuff but all they did is a horrible fanfiction with a huge budget. It seems almost impossible to do this unintentionally actually.

    I was with you until 4:30. That is not the same the Last Jedi at all. Killing Snoke and and thus subverting the standard expectations of a generic big bad villain was one of the best things ever and it created some actual exciting and interesting new dynamics in storytelling. It is plausible and consistent with the world that is built around it, that had already established that a force warrior with minimal training (such as Luke Skywalker) can indeed take down a experienced force warrior with decades of training (such as Darth Vader), because that is indeed how the 'force' works within the rules established by the movies. Similarly it has also been established that the Force can be used to deceive and distract (e.g. those aren't the droids we're looking for). The Last Jedi, despite the unwarranted moronic nerd outcry is an amazing movie, and why it's fantastic critic response. You know, critics being the professionals at movie/show reviews?. Game of Thrones last season on the other hands has terrible critic response, the killing off of the Night King is terrible because there not only was it not very plausible, but it bought an abrupt end to the entire White Walker plot-line that had been building up over countless episodes with so much foreshadowing and breadcrumb hints of so much greater meaning.

      Luke Skywalker defeated Darth Vader, in the last movie, and had his hand cut off by Darth Vader in the 2nd movie. Darth Vader could have killed Luke at any point in the 2nd movie. In the 3rd movie Darth Vader did not wish to kill Luke at all in their duel, and Luke briefly fell to the dark side. The only big bad in the original star wars series was Palpatine, which Palpatine only died when Darth Vader, or more like Anakin Skywalker decided he wanted to save his son, and so threw Palpatine down a hole. Luke in episode 3 was not at all weak compared to Vader. Kylo Ren on the other hand who lost in a duel to a person that only knew she had the force for like 2 days, and never held a lightsaber before. Somehow killed a being that was suppose to be almost all powerful, it made no sense.

    Your points are not exactly wrong - and yet, the video title "Anatomy Of A Failure" still is inadequate; in a proper analysis of what went wrong since the show left the books behind (or even exclusively the final season), your points would fall under the category "some more points we'll come to at the end if there's enough time left".

    This basically generalises why people despised the final season so much

    Jaime pre Season 8: "If you stood by while hundres, thousands of men women and children burned alive would you have done it? would you have kept your oath then?"
    Jaime Season 8: "You know I never much cared for them. Innocent or otherwise"

    Imagine that but at least half the entire cast is doing it.

    your a fucking idiot and dany may have done this but the point why people are mad is that this shit happened in one episode which should have been built up over seasons they betrayed the fans with their sloppy ass writing. They should have not rushed it and made it so she doesn't just decide to kill thousands because shes an upset cry baby. People are pissed that the writers acpet us to believe that she would just burn a whole city and kill thousands because she was mad and made a impulsive decision which she has shown never to do. D an D are fucking retarded and incompetent writers.

    It pisses me off whenever people compare TLJ to GoT. People got mad at TLJ for primarily one of these reasons:
    A: They spent years theorizing about future plot points and were wrong and felt cheated they got a different movie
    B: Star Wars is usually about the underdog blowing up the bad guys and instead they got a movie about failure
    C: Some people are sexist bastards
    The subversions all made sense in universe and told a great story, if it's a story that you were open to. GoT has been bad for years. And, honestly, the fact that you initially enjoyed the third episode tells me that you don't have any critical sense.

    To fix the "Dany losing her mind for no reason" problem. Just save Rhaegal's death for the actual siege of King's Landing. That would be an appropriate catalyst for Dany losing her mind. Instead, they had Mary-Sue Euron (who literally nobody cares about) kill Rhaegal out of fucking nowhere with no real payoff.

    I think the Arya killing the Night King aspect could have worked better if they had set it up during the training with the Faceless Assassins. Either help Arya build resistance from the Mind Control of the King and beat him down or have her disguised as one of his henchmen and stab the king in the back.

    I love how everyone says episode 3 wasn't too dark and, yet, showing a single clip from it reassures everything people have been complaining about.

      Also, the peak episode wasn't episode 5, but episode 3. It's the single thing that's been building up from the very beginning. Sersei didn't become a threat up until, maybe, season 3, so it makes no sense to leave her storyline as a peaking event.
      But let's assume that's what they had in mind for the series. So, how did Serse end up, again? Crushed by a pile of rocks? Right.
      SERIOUSLY??!?
      Is that how you get rid of the series' biggest villain? Oh, wait, but it wasn't herv after all, IT' WAS DANNY ALL ALONG! But wait...we didn't get that right until S8E5. Man...
      I mean, if that's not lousy writing, I've no clue what is. It was just horrible. A massacre of epic proportions. And that's the only epic thing we got from the series.

    FFS, all those that keep yappin about this all: you DID NOT GET IT.
    The Battle of King's Landing is NOT ABOUT THAT BATTLE, but about Princess Leya becoming Sith.
    If you did not get it still: the whole damn series had an underlying story under "the story".
    And if you missed it, well, poor intellectual deprived you...

    Though you left some things out, that sequence of events YOU put out was the best. Your right they could of just put the events in the way that you said. Same events, different order.

    The actors deserved more. The fans, while not entitled to anything, deserved better for what they made the show.

    All you did was give us the same shitty ending but deliver it in a different way. No matter how you choose to deliver a shitty ending that doesnt change it from being shit!

    "[...] smaller, nitpicky stuff like who becomes the king [...]"
    Erm, that was the ONE BIGGEST problem! The 'election' of Bran by the Random Council of Surviving Characters is to the episode what the episode is to the season: one great, big, overshadowing peak of concentrated brainfart.

    I'm sort of glad it ended the way it did. It took me many years to get past the first 4 episodes of season one, and then I did a marathon all the way to end of season 7. I thought it was... meh. Not sure why most people were so exited about this show. I thought it was highly over rated. I watched episode 1 of season eight and that was all. I never finished the show, and now I see and hear all the fans were let down. I have a feeling I might just like the ending, lol.

    U said it yourself... Since there wasnt any buildup, it didnt make sense and i disagree that it was the only direction... Because of the lack of buildup they should have either honored the character arc she developed as a man saver and breaker of chains. If not, show me her becoming evil or the lannisters not surrendering..... But the 2 ep buildup for the MaD qUeEN aint enough

    It would have made more sense that Danny tried to kill Cersei but doesn’t know the city is covered with wild fire and basically kills everyone in the process of trying to kill one person. Then justifying her decision by claiming she made the right choice
