    The last season my have been rushed a bit, but The Long Night episode alone is worth watching the show to reach that moment.

    This is pretty much how I feel. Most shows I'm ready for them to end, this show feels like they ended it way too soon. That happens to some shows because of bad ratings and what not, but this show has to be one of the highest rated so it feels weird. The actors really just had to be done. Show runners can be replaced, but if Sophie Turner is like that's it I'm done, then the show is done.

    Did anything come out that maybe the actors were done with the show and didn't want to do more episodes? It is weird that HBO did only 6 episodes. They could have done 10-12. It does seem like a relatively difficult show to make.

    I guess I just don't know enough about Dorne or care that much? Maybe they are just looking for some stability and like being a part of the 6 kingdoms. Maybe it's a trade thing, I don't know. I don't think the show should have ended on what is going to happen with Dorne, a city that hasn't been shown in like three seasons.

    Jon Snow was never going to be king. Hey remember that Targaryen who was awful and they named him the mad king. Then another Targaryen comes in and burns the whole city to the ground killing almost everyone. Well, guess who is now king. Another Targaryen!

    Ending a show has to be one of the hardest things in film to do. You are almost guaranteed to piss off half the fan base with the way you end it, because people want things to go a certain way and when they don't they lose it. I thought the ending for Game of Thrones was pretty good, a little predictable, but it was good. Last season felt a little rushed, but they have to wrap things up at some point and it's probably always going to feel rushed. The absolute worst thing on social media right now is people comparing GoT to real life politics, it's awful. It's a show about dragons and zombies on another planet and people are like "uh actually monarchies are bad".

    It just seemed pretty consistent to his character. He was a complex character that did good and bad things. He had a very complex relationship with his sister, who he loved and hated. He tries to live a more normal life without her, but he can't let her go and it ultimately costs him his life.

    Character development. The show is ending and people are going to die. This has been happening on this show for 8 seasons. Do people think that Jaime Lannister was going to make it out of this alive. I always assumed his was going to die, with just about everyone else. Are people just mad at the way he died? I'm just not sure that matters.

    Have the showrunners said how much input they have gotten from Martin? I wonder if they had an idea for something and went to him and he was like "no that is super dumb", if they would still do it.

    You know if I had a dollar for every time this happened. Am I right or what.

    For those that have read the books, at what point in this show did they pass the last book?

    They are going to have to stealth kill Dany, cause she is the only one with an army now and a dragon.

    Yeah, the scorpion ballistas didn't stop working, they were just ambushed last time and this time they were ready for them. People were really looking for Cersei to get hers, but her dying with Jaime makes sense, but definitely a little underwhelming. Everyone wanted Arya to kill her and anything short of that was going to make people mad. The creators obviously valued one last scene with Jaime and Cersei over Arya killing her in a hall way as the city burns and where she was going to die anyway. I liked the exchange between the Hound and Arya, I feel like the Hound has been trying to talk Arya into not becoming him and it seemed to finally take hold. Although I don't think she is done yet. I'm going to miss the Hound, I love his shit attitude and general crankiness.

    In the last couple episodes they killed her best friend, her dragon and then had a lot of people close to her start to doubt her or just straight up turn on her and she was clearly losing it. Also, she is from a family that tends to do this.

    T.V show endings have to be one of toughest things to do. It's like people seem to always hate them. I think people imagine the way a show should end in their head and if it ends any other way it's "bad writing" or they ran out of material. I think a lot of people really like Dany, so they are having a hard time seeing her go off the deep end, but I think that's why it's so good. It's not Cersei being evil, it's someone that you rooted for through out the show and now have to root against. You shouldn't be surprised though, they have always hinted that she has this in her and through out the show she has shown signs of it and really in the last season has had a lot of things not go her way. It's also not a completely new story arc, the hero to villain has been done before.

    I've actually forgotten a lot about some of the stuff that has happened on this show. I wanted to go back re-watch the whole series before this season started, but didn't have the time. Definitely re-watch the whole series at some point.

    and Arya served up a human pie.... It was an oversight on my part.

    I somehow forgot about the Red Wedding. I guess I've just been thinking about events that have happened more recently.

    Ohhh, I forgot about that. Nevermind. I still think Arya has to be the favorite to kill Cersei.

    Game of Thrones

    I don't think she dies. I'm not sure how the show kills a pregnant woman. Seems a bit much. If it turns out she isn't pregnant, I could see it. Jaime or Arya. If she is, I think she either wins and stays in power or they remove her and send her back home disgraced, which I think she would hate more than death.

    Game of Thrones

    Yeah, I think it might just be that the dragons are cool and I want to see them around more, but the whole way that scene played out almost seemed too easy. Cersei also did the classic "did you see it die?" and Euron was like "yeah it feel into the sea". I was saying it last night and my wife thought I was crazy, so I don't know.

    When a lot of shows end, I feel like it is time or way past it's time to end, but I have to admit that Game of Thrones seems to be ending too soon. I feel like it needed another year or two.

    Game of Thrones

    Yeah, I think some characters were more central to the white walker plot. Same with Sam and the wildlings, their job is done. Not saying that some may play a role going forward, but it wouldn't surprise me if some of those stories have ended. I think this last battle is between those heading to King's Landing. It may be nothing, but in the trailer for next week, the last scene shows Euron on his ship waiting for a dragon. You hear a dragon sound and Euron is looking up and seems surprised or shocked by something. He was waiting for a dragon, so I doubt a dragon showing up would shock him, but if it was TWO dragons it might. So that is my crazy prediction for next week, that the other dragon didn't die.

    I didn't get the vibe that Jaime was going to kill his sister. I think he is going to try and talk her into giving up the throne. I think it will fail and she will kill him. Does he know that she is pregnant with his child? If so, I really don't see him killing her.
