      The fact that it took you this long to see that the writers couldn't handle it is kinda sad, when you are suppose to objectively analyze and talk about the show.

      Maybe you can come back when (maybe IF) George finishes the books. I will continue to watch your reviews of the other shows.

    I’m really interested to see how George is going to handle this with Jon in the books because that seems to be the one thing that everyone can agree just kinda doesn’t make sense within the context of the books especially with the young griff storyline what’s the point of him being a Targaryen especially in the books if young griff is actually aegon Targaryen or well Elia’s aegon Targaryen would that mean theres just two catalysts now In the books for Daenerys to go mad queen? Not sure but it’s still fun to think about

        A Targaryen alone in the world is a terrible thing

          There was no TIME for Jon to think and mull it over. THAT IS THE POINT. In war sometimes there is no time. Jon was taught to do the unfair, dishonorable thing when he fought North of the Wall and was stabbed to death. He was taught to kill, someone that had not done anything to him, but was dangerous by the Half Hand. And forced to do it, by the Half Hand. The more I rewatch it. The more the speed of events makes sense.
          And to ask what is the point of Jon being a Targaryen, makes me regret all the hours that I invested watching your youtube. This makes me sad...

              Its all Brans fault. If he never mention to jon that he was targarian dany wouldn't be that way.

                The first game of throne episode I watched was the finale. I had a friend who was a dire hard fan give an explanation. I have since watched seasons 1-3 as I enjoyed the acting and cinematography in the finale. I know many people hate the finale from a story and plot perspective, but from a technical perspective, it was far better than most other shows on TV, to the point where I adjusted what I watch so I could watch Game of Thrones.

                    No matter what Jon has to live with alot of pain from killing Dany to the betrayal of his fellow nights watch men etc. So he is never going to be truly happy.

                      Well Jon being Targ I feel was so that he was really the only one that can get that close to her. Others would have been killed by the dragon.

                        Would it have been better if right before Drogon was about to burn jon snow. Bran warged him? Then said “Why do you think i came all this way” lol

                              GRRM is struggling to finish the books for how long now? I’m not the biggest fan of the season, many unanswered questions, but D&D are not the only ones to blame.

                                  I haven't seen anyone comment this, but it's really f-ed up after Theon's redemption and heroic death, NO ONE TOLD YARA! I would have LOVED a scene with her getting that news.

                                      Once the books are done in 100 years, the animators behind the Castlevania series should remake the show.

                                            It was no time to digest all that. I am so sad about the entire season 8. They blew up that season 8.. But I love Game of thrones I am trying to stay strong for the spirit of the show. I wish it was a different ending for Jon but I have to agree with Tommend Jon" you belong to the real north"

                                            • ThePunikaTV

                                              I still enjoy "The long Night" as a stand alone episode. I really like Arya killing the Night King because Jon is still responsible for everything leading up to it (making allies with wildlings, taking winterfell back from the boltons, uniting the north, bringing Dany into the fight against the dead) and I think it is really fitting for Arya (trained assasin by a cult that whorships the god of death) to kill the embodiment of death.

                                              I just think that Jon should have a much bigger role after the Night King, being the rightful heir to the Iron throne and all that. And the order of "big bads" was weird. They should have lost Winterfell to the Night King and being forced to deal with Cersei first. After that they would deal with the two biggest threats in the show. First the Night King (Ice) and after that they have to deal with Dany (Fire). And responsible for their deaths (even if arya kills the night king, jon would still be responsible for beating him) would be Jon Snow (Ice and Fire). And wouldn't it look awesome seeing Kings Landing first ravaged by the army of the dead and later on the red keep by Danys dragon fire?

                                                Heads up: I am not trying to defend the show. It is what it is.

                                                I think many people don't believe the "Mad Queen" Dany Plot (besiedes the rushed writing) because she isn't really "Mad" like the Mad King. Aerys was mad as in completely disturbed and paranoid and completely detached from reallity. Danys "Madness" comes almost only from her irrational and emotional reactions to the situation she is facing. There are many things in the past that show how emotional she is reacting to all kinds of stuff (crossing of the masters, burning the tarlys, burning masters,...).

                                                Edit: There is one foreshadowing for Bran being King: "The climb is all there is". Who is the best we know at climbing and who lost his ability to do so? Wouldn't it be cool if he would get the chance to climb the laddah metaphorically speaking? I kinda like it.

                                                  Wait! John stabbed his love in the heart and Drogon set the thorn "of swords" aflame. Is that the prophecy coming to?

                                                    Anyone else notice how they left greyworm and misande (spelling) out of the feast scenes because wanted to show that dany was “alone” I feel like they would have been there as Danys best friend and the commander of a large portion of danys forces

                                                      Jon should've killed the Night King! All the build up and the staredown between the Night King and Jon. Thy should've dueled!!

                                                        Tyrion should've been killed, he was protecting his family. The books won't have a tree as King. I also don't think Dany will burn King's Landing. She's 1 of 5 characters who live until the end and Dany's 1 of them.

                                                          You know I really enjoy listening you guys talk about GOT , you are so passsionate about GOT both books and show. How about you do video discussions on the following subject :

                                                          - Each one of you narrate (can take 1h video I don't care) how you would have written the story of season 8 if you had only 6 episode. Let's say you are D&D lol

                                                          - HBO gives you as many seasons as you want, how would you have written GOT story from season 8 to the very end ?

                                                          (I want each of you to write your own story, not together, and narrate to the other in different videos :)

There is not only a live orchestra, a choir, 3D animations of weirwood trees and dragons, they make it SNOW! and many other surprises. They play scenes from the’s amazing 😉 go!

To speak of an author that foreshadows so much, I can't think of more foreshadowing than having the opening chapter character becoming king.
                                                                                    I agree that the last few seasons were rushed, but Bran was set up to be the most important character.
                                                                                    I, like many others, wish the series finished better, and more importantly, fuller.
