    Game of Thrones season 8 became worse than The Walking Dead...and I don’t know how that was at all possible

      Maybe the scene where Tyrion listens to them ducking is showing that he's worried, or that he already thought about Jons heritage. I don't want him to be in love with Danny either

            I always thought they made a huge mistake killing off Stannis as early as they did. He was such a great character and Stephen Dillane did a brilliant job of portraying him.

              Yep, yep. I think we're all in agreement. For me, the show went off the rails in season 5, where it departs from the books. But in a more general way, I think even Martin's story suffers once the focus moves from the Stark/Lannister conflict to a more broad, inclusive conflict that encompasses more characters and lands. At that point, it just feels like we're exploring more-of-the-same. And Tyrion is a much weaker character imo after leaving King's Landing even in the books. BUT, yeah the show stunk after that point. Yep.

                So the scene with Daenerys snaps is because the writers mixed her up with Cerci so they made the ringing bells throw her into rage because of the trauma of the walk of shame. Isn’t that fuckin stupid like they how do you mix up your own characters like that you’ve been writing them for years

                      It is not confirmed that dragon fire is used to make either Valyrian Steel or Dragonglass (the latter being a nickname for Obsidian). These are just fan/internal theories. The NK also walked through Dany's dragon fire in Beyond the Wall so I'm confused as to why the show acted like this was even a possibility?

                        I think you can actually see the cracks in season 2 or even earlier. Something Martin does really well is establishing character motivations so even if an action is unexpected, it's because it goes against the narrative tropes we're used to, the action and its consequences make complete sense in hindsight. In the show they started making modifications to the characters in a way that really makes me believe they don't understand how consequences connect. For instance in the books a character will have a motivation and perform actions that take them from A to B, in the show that same character has been redirected such that they're now on a path to point C and yet right at the end they end up at point B anyway and it makes no sense how they got there. Shae is a classic example of this. The showrunners fundamentally don't get it. It's why season 5 was devoid of tension, it's why there seem to be nonsensical twists for the sake of twists, it's why the characters become less and less nuanced over time. They're just not good storytellers, and it only took us so long to notice because they got to ride on the success of someone else's story for so long.

                          I'll give you that Daenery's downfall could have use more developing. And the end result is sloppy.
                          But to me it's deffinitely not contradictory or unclear in any way.
                          Like you said, it has been foreshadowed; and what makes her snap is the loss of her dragons and Missandei (maybe mixed with some Targaryen madness). And in that particular scene with the bells, she's reacting to the frustration of not getting her revenge (misplaced as it may have been). She was hoping for the bells not to ring, because she knew that if they did, she couldn't take her anger out on the city; and when they do, she feels like she's robbed from that. So she ends up saying "fuck it, I want my revenge anyway". And that's where the Targeryan madness comes in.
                          I can agree that maybe the motives are a bit thin (I'm not 100% sold on them myself). And as I said, it's underdeveloped. But the direction they took with Daenerys is one of the few things I liked.
                          Something similar happens with Jaimee

                            Okay but how is killing the Tarlys a sign of madness?. If any other character that is a ruler executes their enemy no one says anything, but when Dany- a ruler, kills two men that are against her on the battlefield- That’s not madness that’s called realistic logic but people are always quick to go against Daenerys

                              Wouldn't it have been so much better if when John brings the white walker out of the box to show Cersei that it is either dead or greatly weakened by the south climate? Meaning, Cersei now knows that that they not really her problem and therefore refuses to help. The north wants to be independent - so be it!
                              I think that the fact that she sees it at full strength and still doesn't help is too far fetched to believe. Her loyalty has always been to her family, sure, and with a baby on the way, that reasonable, but she's not a moron! Maybe this would have even justified Daenery's burning of the city - maybe.

                                    Jamie going back to be with Cersei made more sense than if we went back to kill her. Jamie's love for Cersei has always been a big aspect of his character

                                        I agree with a lot of this but not the shot of the dragon behind Danny. Love that shot. I thought that scene looked spectacular

                                          There’s a world in which I would have loved GoT (specifically the narrative of Dragon Lady being good and deteriorating into a tyrannical ruler). I’m just glad that this world is not that one

                                              Theon dying an avoidable death while protecting bran is good for him and in his developement and in line with the people die mentality. And sansa stayed a good character too, mainly because she didnt got twisted and ruined, but she stayed a good character and won through endurance where she ended, it feels organic. Poor jons characterisation he was only really himself in the epilogue in the north, he didnt even got a rematch with the night king. Daenerys behaved erratic already, but she somehow became sane the earlier episodes and sudden she is worse despire having finally some common sense.

                                              And arya isnt a bad character but she got a sudden shift in character with no consequences for her traumas that makes her the showrunners darling, now she killed the night king too alone, she isnt a good character. And brans foresight was underused in situations where it could be tactical useful. like a battle.

                                                I highly agree with most of this commentary, though I will say in terms of Dany's arc:

                                                It's not that I don't agree that the arc was incredibly rushed and done so haphazardly that it became almost offensive. But I DO genuinely feel that her going full on dark was quite a logical path for her to go down, and the more people insist that she was soooo good and perfect and that it made no sense, the more I'm like "... yes, it did!!"

                                                The best way I've come up with to express how I feel about her arc is: The tracks were well laid from very early on for her to end up going dark. Her sense of entitlement and view of the throne being her destiny, her consistently being reigned in from her worst impulses, her growing dependence on people falling at her feet in adoration... it was all well positioned to threaten to overtake her good intentions once she got to Westeros. And it was a really compelling arc for her imo. What messed it up was that they had the train going at a pretty slow pace to get her from point A (wanting to rule, but do so justly) to point B (abandoning all her good intentions to get the power she wanted) for the first 7 seasons, and then suddenly ramped everything up to lightning speed to get her from maybe halfway along the path to full on mass genocidal tyrant in the span of 6 episodes.

                                                So it was terribly executed, but I just feel like so many people are so adamant in insisting that the tracks were never laid aside from "a few fleeting comments of foreshadowing", that I end up getting more frustrated by that argument than by the poor execution.

                                                For me, the character who they *truly* screwed over, in the sense of completely abandoning everything that made them engaging in the first place, was Jon. It's not even that I have an issue with Jon's arc as a whole in theory either, it's just that they literally stripped him of all personality and point of view to the extent that I can't even put that on him as a character making bad choices or anything in s8. It's literally just... they didn't bother to write anything for him. A huge amount of the plot of s8 revolved AROUND him and these details of his identity that would have been massively important to him, and yet... they could not be bothered to write more than two cringey lines for him to repeat like a broken record, all so that other characters could TREAT him like he was some weak minded, easily manipulated pushover when the Jon of every other season was the complete and total opposite! I'm all good with him ending up beyond the wall with Ghost and Tormund and everything- I think it's his personal happiest ending and can't be mad at that- but the fact that he was given NO point of view in a season that could have so easily been one of the best Jon seasons if it was written decently? That's far more frustrating to me that Dany's arc being rushed.

                                                The writers rushed the last season due to other commitments and disrespected millions of fans.

I just had this weird feeling that the people writing it were just rip off merchants with little real talent for story telling/character development or the traditional ideas of a protagonists and antagonists. But certainly from a business perspective they pulled off a corker, the nonsensical plot and characters kept the suckers holding on like a drug addict trying to get that first hit feeling back. Once they had the established audience they just ground and pounded you poor fools into submission, and now like a drug addict on the come down - a moment of clarity arrives - and you see this trash for what it is. I keep watching these reviews because i want to understand how this happens. Is it just that people coming out of University and getting these media jobs are just vapid and have no real sense of the heroic narrative because ancient Greece or Shakespeare is white supremacy or something. Quite possibly. It was never good, it was 'OK' because of the absence of anything comparable (on TV anyway). And im glad you all see it for what it is now, down the memory hole it goes. Bye-Bye now.

I get that it has nothing to do with the Dark Tyrion of the books we all wanted, but in the show his character arc was essentially paused. Maybe a bit of internal conflict and personal motive would've helped? I certainly would've liked it more then Jon and Dany. Those two were cringey as heck.

Dany's scenes were the only interesting thing happening on screen and after she died it all went to shit.

Samwell should've died fighting heroically (making him turn from a coward) at Ed's side. Hell! Jon should've died serving as bait, so Arya could do her ninja/air bender jump to finish the Night King (as they really wanted that).
                                                                          Then Daenerys should've died at King's Landing in the brink of her victory. Something, anything, not the manure they showed on screen...

It meant fucking nothing, he could’ve just gone the whole show being John Snow and hardly anything would be different

                                                                                  If it's about ego, they definitely should have sticked it out instead of pissing on their own legacy - and if it wasn't, they should have admitted to themselves that they are "over it" and given another writer/showrunner a chance.

                                                                                      but again the thing is, feeling that "relief" at you're fave's ending is kind of a paradox when it comes to season 8, because the show had built its notoriety in those earlier seasons on maintaining internal logic *but still always keeping the audience on their toes. you never knew for sure what was going to happen.* but in the last two season, like so many people have said, that all goes out the window and the audience is actually disappointed that more of their faves *didn't* die. yeah, i was happy that my faves made it out alive, but it doesn't pack the same satisfying punch when you know they were all protected by plot armor anyway.

The finale wasn’t THAT bad (it had its cringey “I call it ‘a song of ice and fire’” moments). The rest of the season just left it with nothing to be but mediocre. My only other real complaint was the “modern value crowbar” of a pseudo-democracy showing up at the end. If that were George’s intention, I’m sure he would, at the very least, flesh it out completely instead of leaving its founding a result of a brief Tyrion monologue.

It’s true that they worked hard but at the same time, they earned loads and loads of money thanks to you and other people who actually want to show to be the best. So it’s funny when you belittle your actions. You have every right to glorify and you have every right to bash them.
