Just watched the final episode. In all honesty, it wasn't a good episode by any means, but it was definitely perhaps the most consistent episode of Season 8. Not much happened, the episode is entirely dialogue based, and it moved quickly and it felt short (at least, to me, personally). The viewer is still left with a lot of holes and loose ends that were obviously outright dumped for the sake of time and laziness, but D&D did use a pretty, little bow to tie up what they could, and every named character who remains is given a happy ending (which seems very unlike something that GRRM would do). Fuck happy endings. With that said, as an ending to the eight season series, this episode was a fucking boring, horrible, shitty ending on all accounts. So, fuck this ending. What a load of shit. Issues with the episode: Spoiler - Did a single civilian survive at King's Landing? Clearly not... - We never see that "symbolic" white horse again. Arya immediately ditched the horse after she rode out on it at the end of the previous episode. - Grey Worm somehow magically teleports to the top of the stairs ahead of Jon. Grey Worm also later teleports onto a ship ahead of Jon. Seems like Grey Worm has mastered Goku's ability of instant transmission from Dragon Ball Z. Arya uses the same ability to teleport behind Jon at the top of the stairs. - How did Daenerys even know that Tyrion freed Jaime? She never once saw Jaime, and no one seemed concerned about his disappearance the day of the battle. - Daenerys, this ultimate character built up over eight seasons, is simple offed by a single knife stab and dies within like ten seconds. I'm sorry, but she deserved to go out with more of a bang after all these years of character development, especially since we just observed Jaime taking multiple stab wounds and being fine enough to still climb into King's Landing in the previous episode. - Drogon melts the Iron Throne. What the fuck. Like, you're going to tell me that a dragon, who is said in the series to be as sentient and intelligent as a dog, randomly decided to say "fuck this chair" and melt it? Fuck off with that. - It seems like all of the lords and ladies present at the meeting (and the showrunners) forgot that Gendry had a solid fucking claim to be king. In fact, Gendry had more of a claim that Daenerys ever did. - Jon is sentenced back to the Night's Watch...wait...there is still a Night's Watch? Is there even a need for a Night's Watch since the wall got annihilated and there is now peace with the Wildlings? - Why are the Unsullied heading to Naath of all places? And what will they do there? Since there are all castrated men, I doubt they will procreate or do anything of that nature that typically comes with colonization. - Why does Arya suddenly want to go West of Westeros? Now she is like fucking Captain Jack Sparrow wanting to sail off into the sunset or into uncharted territory for adventure? Where the fuck did that even come from? We as the viewers are left with nothing here. - So, Bronn got Highgarden as promised, and he became the Master of Coin because apparently Highgarden is still a wealthy castle despite the Tyrell family being wiped out and no one living there. (Ok...) Seems like Bronn ultimately played the Game of Thrones the right way because he got a position on the council despite betraying so many including Tyrion and despite threatening to kill Tyrion. Bravo to Bronn then. - For all of the fans who were upset about Jon not petting Ghost before telling Tormund to take the direwolf north of the wall, they can now shut the fuck up because Jon and Ghost are reunited. And you know what happened? THEY GOT THEIR LAST-MINUTE FAN SERVICE. JON PETTED GHOST LIKE THE GOOD DOG THAT GHOST IS. - The ending to Jon's character arc felt incredibly lukewarm and mediocre. I mean, the last shot is just him leading the Wildlings out of the tunnel in the wall to venture further north. But for what exactly?
