Can you believe there are people who actually liked it @Animosity? Even when it is so blatantly inconsistent and retcon’d six seasons worth of plot lines and character development?
Poor Jon was made to kill the woman he loved the same way the Night’s Watch brothers lured him out, tricked him and killed him. Not only did the writers dishonor him like that, they dishonored his character further (a man so much like Eddard, who did everything for it) by having him rejected the newly elected king’s (hilarious!) punishment by skipping the worthless Night’s Watch entirely to go north with the free folk.
I mean really? Sansa the queen in the north? Bran the elected king? Bronn, of all people, on the council? So the only person who got screwed over was Dany, the person who has only ever helped people since S1?
8 years wasted on this trash…
There’s a petition with 1m signatures on it that’s shaming the writers. I don’t think it really aims to have the finale season redone, though that would be awesome, but it is great to show the writers just how bad they messed up and how much we don’t like it. Also, I don’t like them as a people. When Selmy’s actor found out his character was dying—as he was not dead in the books—he called them up and asked them if they were sure. They said yes. They then later went on an interview and talked about his phone call, quoted him (without names but it was obvious) and then laughed about him and said it made them want to kill him more.
I can only feel shame and regret for GRRM at this point for handing the reigns of his epic fantasy over to these brainless hacks.
@Pylinaer , you shouldn’t watch the show. It spends 6-7 seasons (eight years) building plot lines and enemies it never (and that is serious!) answers. Characters’ arcs are thrown aside in 1 episode. They act completely different in the end, so much so the actors themselves fought with the writers and have been open about how bad the season finale was going to be (and poor Emilia almost died 3 times for it). Writing so bad that characters forget things they did literally one scene before just so the writing could execute poorly or forget what they did in their life.
If you want to get into GRRM’s world, read the books, don’t give D&D your time. The rest of the fans would appreciate it as well.
