      I don't really like the Ygritte part I feel like Jon should think more about Ned when thinking about defending the North but everything else seems pretty great

      I like the rewrite, but I had a thought while watching this... You should do an audio recording of your book and release it. Personally, I don't always have time to read a book, but listening to it would be too easy

      Only rewriting episodes 5 and 6 makes no sense, the season was ruined when the white walkers died in episode 3. There simply is no way how an ending not involving them, but just Cersei, Daenerys and Jon, could ever feel satisfying.

      I would make Cersei win the first battle,that would show 1)some value of Golden Company 2)that cersei had plan 3)dany would increase her rage as she looses the war.Then i wouldn't kill Rhaegal in ep4.Inspite in ep 5 both dragons burn the fleet,but Rhaegal get hurt that would show that scorpions are dangerous(but not kind of weapon that kills dragon in 5 second,or couldn't hit him at all).Then when Dany lands,nobody ring the bells instead rhaegal is getting killed (maybe even with help of peaceful people),and that's the moment Dany burns everything.That would fix many things,also there's a further option with Cersei want to burn the King's Landing with wildfire but Jaime will stop her,and she would get long dramatic death and the prophecy will be realized

    Love how it’s “snowing”(confirmed by the writers it’s not ash) in Kings Landing and then in the Dragon Pit meeting a few weeks later it looks like a desert again.

              I like some parts but when Drogon was injured in season 7 she didn’t go all Burn them all do stay into Danys character of fighting a darker side but still caring about those around her she needs real motivation to harm men who did nothing to her

                  On my opinion dany should've conquered valyria again and reclaim the ancient terretory her ancestors have after the doom of valyria and conquered all of western essos as her major campaigne the she can proclaim herself an empress of a vast empire then she can turn to the iron throne to make it even more interesting just my opinion hahah

                                          All of these re-writes suck lol. You keep implying the Greyworm is being sadistic when he's the only person that has a remotely heroic, non-self serving need to win this particular war. You also randomly pivoted the empathy on the Lannister Army to 'foreshadow' Dany being evil, but there's no real justification for that because it will come out forced and predictable. And Tyrion delivering the rationale for the sudden shift in empathy (like we should now feel bad that Side A's soldiers are going to kill Side B's soldiers) reads as hometown subjective sentiment more than any moral statement. Didn't fight and kill Stannis' men?

                                            The ending you wrote for Dany is beautifully tragic, and perfectly fits her character (in the show).

                                                  All this is pretty good I’m just commenting on less agreeable things. Which though you may notice are often tied to Daenerys, hers is the most difficult end to complete in the time and arc you were given. So, I for one, need an explanation on why 1: the North is deserting their leader mid siege because they are loosing. 2: why Jon is giving in on this being that one he should be focusing on their morale like a commander would any other battle, and two, he walked into battle of the bastards with the odds solidly against them and still took himself and his men into that battle. The odds with Daenerys are significantly greater. And yet in the middle of the siege, they are actually supposed to desert their leaders (Dany and/or Jon). Once again, this does not speak well to the honor of the North. And is extremely distasteful of them. I’m not saying Dany burning them alive is any better than letting them go, but the act in which once again the North is untrustworthy is tied of her downfall. She actually can not trust them, that’s not an illusion. Even if we the audience in modern day, can understand why they would want to leave, it doesn’t make sense in the period for her to be “mad” for acting on their desertion. For example, if Stannis knew his men had deserted him before he was attacked by Ramsay/Roose Bolton’s forces, if he survived, he would SURELY without a doubt have had all those deserters stripped of whatever titles or what not and called them turn cloaks or just deserters, and the appropriate and acceptable punishment for desertion in the middle of the war and battle for that matter, would likely be death. Stannis can’t burn them all alive instantly, but the situation is clear enough. I don’t see how desertion in this time period in the middle of battle against the direct order of your leader isn’t treason and thus cause for execution. This is a trope of the tv series always making it look worse because it’s Dany who did it and she does it with Dragons. Which is somehow worse and less acceptable. It shouldn’t be acceptable at all in that case, from any leader. Desertion when loosing a battle should be common practice. Again, my observation of a possible flaw in your rewrite. And Jon telling her “the battle is lost you knows this”, when he ran up on an army in an already loosing battle is, questionable of his character consistency. Or simply saying flat out the North only risks anything when they’re invested. based on the rewrite I can agree though that Dany is being unreasonable. But if you are in war in battle and just turn tail, that’s nonsense. My strongest argument is the Stannis portion, and the battle of the bastards portion. Deserters would be punished accordingly by any leader and Jon nor the North should be high tailing it because suddenly we might loose and we are emotionally fatigued mid battle so we’re just gonna go. That’s not acceptable in today’s standards either honestly. Dany isn’t asking them to do anything she hasn’t asked her own men. If you bothered to come to KL all this way for war. The possibility of not going home must be clear. I’m going on and on but again. It seems like Daenerys’ goals and getting them accomplished takes back seat to everyone else because they are what? Immoral? Not really. Not compared to any other leader before her. Not in comparison with any other instance in this time period where a similar circumstance might happen. Just because it’s Jon doesn’t mean it okay for he and the North to desert against his chosen queens command. People are picking and choosing when they follow orders which means you should have never bent the knee. But that’s a whole other mess up I think that shouldn’t have happened because Jon only had a personal reason to want to trust Daenerys. Her saving his life. That didn’t give him the right to hand over his kingdom without consultation and advising and a conference of some sort. That’s part of the problem with the season 8 writing is that Jon suddenly realized he messed up giving her so much of his own power. So now he has to go back and betray her or disobey her to over rule her decisions. If he were still king, she would have no right to command anything and her killing the northerners here would be a direct affront on king Jon and his people. He would be there as an ally, not under her command and able to make the call when it came to his men. This is indeed, Jon’s issue. Okay that’s all or I’ll go on and on.

                                                    I disagree with your assumption Daenerys would not have accounted for or wouldn’t bother to address Dothraki war customs. Specifically because she brings this issue up first to her husband and Khal, Drogo. They are mine, it please me to keep them safe. So in her time going to obtain more Dothraki for her army, giving them speeches, and having dragons as collateral if they go against her, I don’t see why she would not address the ending of the practice of rape among those who chose to follow her. That should be a given based on what we know and how she feels about it. Also, i think it’s important that while you make other characters more appropriately intelligent, you don’t forget Daenerys’ intelligence and observational skills. She pays attention to much and misses little in the books. The show doesn’t go over the larger political challenges she faced in Essos, like the green grace. But She learns from past mistakes. Just to get her to crazy in a way that seems reasonable shouldn’t cost her her intelligence or remorse for the innocent unless thoroughly explained. And no more than it should cost Tyrion or Jon.

Martin, author of the original source material, could stop them, but when the world needed him most, he vanished. A badly written and awfully rushed ending passed and George still hasn't finished A Song of Ice and Fire, and although there's still time to shoot a proper ending with the same cast and new writers, time is running out. But I believe George can finish his books.

In the books Dragons are very hard to kill even with Scorpions as it took One in the eye in Dorne. Sorry to say but season 8 was so badly done No One can fix it to be Satisfying at all. You did great with the Night King "Winterfell" rewrite but you can't fix this One because 💩 & 💩 showrunners totally "Troyed" and Super Glued Deadpool from "WOLVERINE: X-MEN Origins" ending to GOT. #1 Daenerys book Character is Nothing like the 💩 & 💩 show version where the writers have stated clearly "We write the characters to fit the actors talents" Not the other way around. Sorry I can't side with you on this One. It was a good analysis and effort though....!

You addressed the grey morals that just didn't come across appropriately or enough in the showrunner's version. You addressed Tyrion's strategic strengths, and had Kings Landing's three strategic hills (one of the reasons Aegon and his sisters chose the location in the first place) utilised in the battle. You had it actually *be* a battle, not a one-sided...whatever the show's version was. You killed Varys in a more reasonable way, having maintained Varys' subtlety. I'm not finished yet, but so far...well done!

                                                                                    • Real Cold Cases

                                                                                      I just think that with the constraints of having just 6 episodes, they shouldn't have even bothered with the mad queen arc. They should have just focused entirely on the night king. If they wanted to tie in kings landing, they should have just flown bran off to kings landing to force cersei to fight with them. Have davos smuggle bran in or something. Jon will defeat night king, but die in the process. Dany will then tell jon as he's dying, that she's pregnant with his baby. Before her coronation, she will then die in childbirth. Tyrion and Varys will raise the baby and Tyrion will serve as king regent until baby Jon Targaryen comes of age. The end. Oh, and Arya kills Cersei using Jamie's face.
