    Game of Thrones will go down as one of the biggest, most exciting shows of all time. . . with an absolutely terrible, no good, very bad season finale. Seriously, we know fans always like to find something to complain about and the bigger a franchise is the more dissenters are going to show up out of the woodwork to voice their opinions. But we’re going to go over everything wrong with the final episode of season eight because it really was that bad. This isn’t a mere case of us not getting the exact ending we wanted and complaining about it because we have a YouTube channel and we can do this.

    Let’s talk about some of the major players who didn’t even make it to the final episode. Not only did we not get sweet, sweet, revenge on Cersei Lannister but we said goodbye to her way too soon. Same with the character arc of Jaime Lannister, the entire Lord of Light prophecy, and pretty much everything else which had been built up over the previous episodes. We learned that Jon Snow still knows nothing despite going through so much and we got to see Arya Stark put an end to her career of vengeance by wandering away into the wilderness.

    Pretty sure Arya became the Prince That Was Promised. But yeah, such a hugely disappointing ending all around. Hopefully the conclusion in George’s head is much more satisfying.

                  Okay, a lot of time has passed. ...... Nope, that was still the shittiest ending ever. HBO is dead to me.

                    If D&D really wanted to kill off Dany so bad it should have ended like this. So after she burns down kings landing and the iron throne from realising she is not the true heir and its Jon she flies off with Drogon. Jon becomes king and Arya leaves Westeros, finds Dany and kills her only the twist is its not Arya its a faceless man.

                      Should've done what George was gonna do. Sad his tv show ending terribly because they did something different.

                            I think hindsight has made the ending slightly better as in most people were just so hyped that they blew a gasket over a tv show

                              This is over? Shooooooot! I missed seasons 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and this one. Oh well!

                                This final season was more for the intellect. The flow of events fits well and is fair and reasonable. The absence of sex scenes shouldnt make people conclude its a bad season. Its a fair roundoff of events

                                I don’t understand you guys, the ending wasen’t even bad. They could have made at least one more episode tho. But the ending was beautiful

                                      NOPE Dexter did....at least Dany or any of the characters didnt turn into depressed lumberjacks and some of them had decently happy endings but it was still crap lol. So I'd say 2nd worse series finale

                                        I can't stand anything game of thrones after that horrible final season. Had it continued i would not have watched, I actually skipped a couple of episodes after reading about them but In my opinion the show took a dive after season 3 and never recovered. They should have focused on story not effects.

                                          So many other options for the ending would have been better. It also felt vaguely like they ripped off The Return of the King’s ending.

                                              I still think the thrown should have gone to gendry of hose beratheon. Ned would take the north and denary should have returned to esos.

                                                    I'm glad I never got into this show until just these past few weeks knowing it was completed. I was enjoying it up until Jon met dany and things slowly went downhill with a few ups like the rescue in the north and the first scenes of the long night battle. The long night battle was very dark and pretty much as soon as the night king raised the dead again, I thought oh everyone is going to die or some miracle will happen but no, a simple dagger and potion of invisibility and the night king is dead and many people thought dead were still alive. I actually thought it was only the main characters and a few nameless soldiers left but then later on we see there is still a fair amount of dany's army left. I'd say after the night king raised the dead again, Jon went into NPC mode for the rest of the season until the very end, with the "She is our/my queen".

                                                    King's landing burning, I was already disconnected at this point with the show and didn't really care about anyone but tyrion and I felt bad for the hound and jamie.

                                                    They should of done something with cersei first, then created the epic finale around the night king or at the very least create a plot twist around cersei betraying everyone.

D&D had on their hands the greatest political drama of all time, and they somehow turned it into a medieval version of Falcon Crest. Now, instead of being banned from the entertainment industry for life, they have a Star Wars gig? Someone at Disney is on the Longbottom Leaf!

Blue dragon should have had an epic one v one with jonny boy jon becomes victorious over it.
                                                                                          Then in the end of the show drogon is pissed about dany, he flies off to mourn, jon snow reveals himself as a targaryan, drogon returns and blast parts of the unsullied against jons will, he calms the dragon down, hops up on him, he tells gray worm he is free to do whatever he wants, the thousand northman hazah jon as he flies away. Thats a happier ending than that bullshit card he was dealt
