"With the Army of the Dead - led by the Night King, his White Walkers and an undead dragon - bearing down on Jon and Dany and their combined forces, a denouement eight seasons in the making will be reached, answering a myriad of questions surrounding the fate of the series' protagonists. Meanwhile, Jon's true identity promises to undermine Dany's claim to the Iron Throne...and, or course, Cersei has a devious strategy of her own." -- Container.

The biggest letdown of the series. This season single-handedly removed Game of Thrones from pop-culture. When was the last time you heard someone say "Winter is coming" or "You know nothing, Jon Snow." It wasn't because the series ended, it was because this season was so bad. It was rushed, characters changed their belief systems as if they were suddenly manic-depressive, whole armies are destroyed but the same people (popular extras and side-characters) that you saw dead on the floor, or zombified, were alive and well in the next episode. Whole regiments of the main force were destroyed to the last man, but still appeared on the next episode. Plot armor was thick. Overpowered beings were killed instantly in more than one case, then become extremely unkillable and unhittable by ballistae/arrows in the next episode.

It would probably be better to watch Season 1-7 and forget about this.

Some effort at editing would have improved the Longest Ever Finale as would have several Doc Martin "Stop talking!" interventions. The intrusion of magic is always a dangerous game in fiction and that army of the dead smelled from the outset of season one as did Jon Snow's man bun. Best features: theme song and opening model springing up magically. Best characters: Hateful Cersei and the dragons. Just make it go away: Bran the boring.

I adore GOT and believe it is the most exceptional TV series ever produced. Even so, the ending felt a bit precipitous and unfulfilling. But I soon realized ANY ending would probably seem that way, bcuz I was resenting the fact that it had to end.

Why is the episode four, The Last of the Starks, obviously not the last of the Stark?

The last season of Game of Thrones is definitely its weakest; though still pretty good, it's nowhere near the depth or complexity of its earlier versions. Only one new character of any significance at all is introduced, several of our previously-surviving favorites are killed off in thoroughly perfunctory and ill-considered ways, and the whole story wraps up in a far from satisfying way (though admittedly the task of properly completing such an epic was near-impossible, so failing at it carries relatively little shame; it's arguably a more noble effort than we've gotten from GRRM himself over in Bookland, where he seems to have basically abandoned the effort rather than risk similarly underwhelming results). Of the six episodes, #5 is the only one I'd call actually "good", and "#3" the only one I would term "bad" (mostly because it's all happening in the dark and you can't really see anything). The others are just a mixture of decent character exchanges, long pauses that are probably meant to mean something but which I found entirely pointless, and a lot of general busy work answering some of the more obvious questions about the resolution. And I seriously question the producers' decision to spend a fairly decent chunk of their budget for the season on a brand-new title sequence, with a different orrery around the sun after we've had the same one for all seven previous seasons, and entirely abandoning the habit of changing which map locations are shown based on the episode's events (instead, it shows Last Hearth because of a single scene that happens in a basement there, and then entirely omits Dragonstone despite that locale being used in at least two episodes). While the detailed look at the basements and outer walls of Winterfell and King's Landing are impressive, I still found the intro lacking compared to the traditional one, much as the show itself is lacking compared to past seasons.

While many fans do not like the way Season 8 ends, I find the ending, despite the elements of surprise, to be within the realm of reason. I enjoyed it. In fact, with so many interesting characters still around, and with several issues with unknown outcomes, perhaps HBO should consider another add-on to the series to tell fans what happen in the next 5-10 years. No need to be a long one. But 2 to 3 episodes with a good script to close out some loose ends. I personally would like to know if Bran turns out to be a capable king.

The Game of Thrones ran its course nothing that dramatic or heart felt moments. It was time to end the series.

I understand both the fans' disappointment in the season - it did feel hurried and unsatisfying - as well as the enormous task in front of the creative team to wrap up eight seasons
of complex story lines, character arcs, theme threads and past intrigues. Guess you can't please everyone.

The ending is ingenious, courageous for world wide audience at home watching TV drama series.

I haven't seen it yet, but I am not holding my breath. This much celebrated series had only two things going for it, the good job of the actors and that of hair&make up team. The writing is so so poor and the plot is so full of holes, it only leaves three words in your mind: "How" and "What happened".

Funny that this wildly quoted on dragon diet is not include:

May I ask, how are we meant to feed the greatest army the world has ever seen? While I ensured our stores would last through winter, I didn't account for Dothraki, Unsullied and two full-grown dragons. What do dragons eat, anyway?

-Whatever they want.
