    No. The answer to your question is no. They probably won't do a spinoff with Arya either, because that would be something that I would enjoy, and the creators seem determined to rob me of enjoyment under the guise of "subverting expectations". Why yes, I am a little bitter, thanks for noticing.

            I hope it has a bittersweet ending that we always wanted, but you never know with GoT.

              They need to bring George RR Martin back, that last episode didn’t have enough dongs.

                      The Iron Throne is inconsequential. It will last long enough to be melted into slag by dragon fire. Et tu, Brute, no more Emperors, The Western Roman Empire becomes fractured Middle Age kingdoms.

                                some people will like it and some people will hate it.  That is how all forms of art work.  If everyone felt the same way about a show and interpreted it the same way it would be very uninteresting.  In my opinion that is the point of all forms of art.

                                    The awful truth is I no longer care. If the rumours are true, we'd better prepare ourselves for further crushing disappointment.

                                      I thought Game of Thrones would be the only movie/TV series to end without disappointing me, but here we are.

                                        The only way to stick the landing: There will be 5 more episodes after E6.

                                          When Dan & Dave (D&D) [Dumb&Dumber] didn't want to take HBOs offer for more episodes and more seasons, they should have replaced the show runners and brought in a solid writing team to carry it through season 10.

                                                        considering the fan backlash and the fact that the leaked scripts have all been true so far—nope.

He literally laid the trap to defeat the dead and laid out the puzzle pieces to get there. If everyone knows their future, then the entire story would be a wash. The show has just been horrible with paying off characters arcs because D&D have proven they can't actually create anything without source material.

                                                                      • deadfred821

I knew he wouldn't stay dead & that he was indeed the song of fire & ice that the novel series took its namesake. As long as he's the one left standing Sunday night, they've stuck the landing. Everything else is inconsequential. Kings Landing is a pile of rubble, the free folk have gone home, the north is not a fan of whomever sets on the iron throne, the iron Island kingdom has yet to rebuild & half the northern territories are decimated from the winter war. All that being said, Snow/Targaryen is the only logical choice to have completed the literary heroes journey. So John Snow coming out on top, not just surviving, is the essential key to them sticking this landing...🤷🏾‍♂️

If they made it 2 seasons and slowly came to all the conclusions like all the previous seasons, people would've been happier with the story arcs. Instead they rushed the hell out of it, stuffing 1/3 of the story into 6 episodes. Nothing that happened in season 8 had the time to develop and happen naturally, it was all just forced story telling.

Bran, he’s the one that revealed who Jon is and insisted that Sam tell him “he has to know...” was the quote... he set Dani on her current path, and I think the last episode will reveal tiny manipulations that lead... to him being on the throne at the end.... the entire war and show started because of his fall.... maybe (in a hodor type moment) he even traveled through time and warged himself up the tower in s01e01.

It wasn’t about shock and awe, it drove the story forward, etc. This season MAKES NO SENSE. All the character development for all the characters went in the garbage and there hasn’t been one pay off moment that the story actually led to organically. Don’t get me started on Cersei, the biggest BAMF for 10 years, dying under a rock. I just can’t with this show, this is worst than Lost. So to answer the question, no they can’t stick the landing because they’ve cut off their own legs.
