    We should have known it was dead when Ed Fucking Sheeran popped up.

    Nice that bran wanted the iron throne so much that he let kings landing burn.

    Also the rebuilding work on kings landing had took on great pace over a couple of weeks for it all look the same again.

    It was all happy family post Dany. Just gave up with the story to wrap it all up nicely and all warmly. That was actually one of the better episodes as well this season.

    Oh and the unsullied who were happy to murder anyone suddenly wanted to arrest Jon and wait for the Brady bunch to turn up from the north.

    Also, what the fuck was going on with army size? The dothraki and unsullied were huge so what the hell were the undead doing in that battle?

    I thought that was a semi-reasonable way to finish, a few quibbles aside.

    I could have done have done without the fanservice-y stuff like the North declaring it's independence and nobody else trying it on - as if the Dornish extra whose province hasn't been involved in any of the fighting wouldn't have tried doing the same before the whole damn thing fell apart, but other than that I don't think the ending was glaringly stupid.

    I do think it's ultimately a shame that the series outpaced the books. The quality of the dialogue, and the logic behind a lot of what's happening has nosedived once they showrunners got left without a proper guide. It may well be the books do the same overall outline in the end, but I bet he sells it better. If he isn't dead, obviously.

    Why would the rest of the remaining six kingdoms not just have similarly sacked the whole thing off when Sansa effortlessly seceded from the impending reign of King Bran the Disabled, First of his Name? Particularly the Iron Born, who have always been portrayed as being particularly obsessed with their own independence

    I also question the notion that everyone would be happy to install Bran as King on the basis of little more than Tyrion mulling it over a bit in jail and thinking it's a good idea, especially when the last "good idea" that he backed recently torched the entire city and everyone in it.

    In reality/books the Iron Islands and Dorne would have.

    They're as 'proud' as the North and have always resented being part of the Seven Kingdoms.

    Every show that ends just confirms my belief that Person of Interest, Justified and The Shield are perfect pieces of art.

    Add breaking bad and the sopranos to that list. Plus the wire (if you discount the odd final series source material).

    I think the issue I had was just how inconsequential so much of the stuff they've been building has been.

    Arya spent 3(?) seasons learning to be a faceless man so she could kill Walder Frey and then forget she could do it?

    Bran spent ages faffing about up north, becomes one of the most powerful people alive, so he could warg into Hodor and then never do it again? It looks like they were leading upto him warging a dragon and then scrapped it because it's so predictable, which would have been fine if he did literally anything else all season.

    I thought the first part of that last episode was actually really strong, right up until the bit where Jon kills her, which was both excruciatingly shit and also incredibly abrupt. Then, straight after Puff the Magic Dragon did his bit, possibly the worst bit of pacing in television history has everyone immediately fairly sanguine about events, except for Wormers who huffs and puffs with that one face he does.

    Then the actual end is just boring and pointless. I quite liked the Council of Geezers though, that can be a miniseries spinoff.

    All in all, a really badly thought out final series written, produced and acted by people that clearly want out asap.

    He might be immortal but that only gets you so far, when someone who can walk gets tired of his shit it's off to the dungeon with him and that will be that.

    I thought Tyrion was building up to Brann being made King for the exact reason that he'd live forever and then no-one brought it up.

    I don't understand what, boobies aside, attracted fans to 'Dany' in the first place. She was a boring shit at the best of times and mostly just annoying.

    There'll be an element of that but given what she does with it (i.e. the same as all the awful men with power in GOT) she's not an actual good example of it. Basically it's because people think dragons are cute.

    Yeah, I would say Mahow has hit the nail on the head. Without trying to sound condescending, I guess a lot of the female fanbase would have enjoyed the "strong woman" aspect of her character. She started out a bit pathetic and ended up very annoying, but I do remember a few genuinely great moments in the middle where I thought she was cool as fuck.

    The best example that springs to mind is when she first got hold of the Unsullied. When it turns out she spoke Valyrian all along, gives the slave master a dressing down and then gets baby Drogon (or whichever one it was) to torch him. That was absolutely ace.

    Arya is better though if you want a strong female in the show.

    She didn't attempt to rule the world but she became a badass and Maisie is a good actress.

    I really enjoyed watching her character develop, especially in the first few seasons. She was weak and feeble, became braver and stronger, fought the good fight, dished out a bit of Karma and yeah....bit of a slag though and I reckon she'd have had Tyrion eventually. Curiosity init.

    On the other hand, it took them what, like a week, to rebuild the whole city? If the buildings were built to the same standards the first time around then you can't expect them to be particularly sturdy.

    Wouldn't matter even if it was true, the alternative ending would be just as shit based on the writing of the past two seasons.

    I don't know about 'every single member of the Stark family got the happy ending'. Half of them (and most of their associates) died.

    Arya went fishing, Sansa is Sansa, and Bran is still a spastic. Dream come true.

    Sansa Sturgeon probably got the happiest of all the endings, but since she's been getting shat on pretty much constantly since halfway through the first season she's probably the most deserving of one. Bran achieved the most success, becoming an immortal King who can see all of time and control animals, but he's also a cripple and he doesn't seem capable of actually enjoying anything, so you couldn't really call it a happy ending.
