9 Reasons Why ‘Game Of Thrones’ Season 8 Was A Huge Disappointment


– Season eight of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” has come to an end, and a lot
of people, including myself, are pretty annoyed
about how it played out. In this video, I’m going to
break down the main reasons why fans were left so disappointed by what was supposed to
be a fitting conclusion to one of the greatest
TV shows of all time. No. 1, it was rushed. Everything in season eight
seemed to be happening too quickly, and it would often feel like three episodes worth of information was being crammed into one
feature-length episode. A side effect of this
was that we weren’t able to enjoy the big payoff moments in the way that we had previously. For example, in episode
one of season eight, Jon rode Rhaegal. This is something that
has huge significance, but it didn’t feel like a big event, and the reason is it came
halfway through an episode where loads of other really
important things happened. Jon was reunited with Bran and Arya, Theon saved Yara, the Golden
Company arrived in Westeros, Ned Umber was killed by the White Walkers, Jaime Lannister turned up
unannounced at Winterfell and had a stare-off with Bran, and Jon actually learned
that he was Aegon Targaryen, heir to the Iron Throne and
nephew of his lover, Dany. Yeah, a lot of stuff
happened in that episode. When you compare this moment to when Daenerys first flew with Drogon, it pales in insignificance. It was the climax of
season five, episode nine, and was part of a tense
nine-and-a-half-minute scene where Daenerys was ambushed
by the Sons of the Harpy in the fighting pits of Meereen. Drogon, who was previously missing, swooped down to protect Dany before she climbed on
its back and flew away. The early seasons of “Game of
Thrones” were dialogue-heavy, building up characters, and there wasn’t much on-screen action. Season eight, and to some
degree six and seven, were not like this at all. No. 2, character development. Something that seemed
like a direct consequence of the rushed nature of season eight was the jarring character
development, which left viewers feeling shocked, confused,
and even betrayed. Many would argue that
the show lost its way from season five onwards. That was the point that Benioff and Weiss started making the biggest departures from George R.R. Martin’s books, but season eight has had
by far the most backlash. Here’s why. Each and every character
had been painted so vividly up until this point,
and within six episodes, some had changed beyond recognition, and the best example of
this is Daenerys Targaryen. We had seven seasons of Daenerys Targaryen being built up as one of
the main heroes in the show, and she was torn down and destroyed in the final three episodes. Many fans of the show felt betrayed by it. I just want to make it
clear that this isn’t me criticizing the story arc. If it was necessary for Dany
to become the Mad Queen, then that is fine, but it should not have
happened so quickly. I think I could have gone
along with her downfall if I was subjected to
at least three episodes of her decline following
the death of Missandei. I feel like we needed
to see her not eating, not sleeping, and growing more and more paranoid and vengeful. Instead what we got was a
few shots of her looking a bit tired with bags under her
eyes and her hair messed up. This just wasn’t good enough. When the bells rang out
around King’s Landing and Dany decided to burn
down the city anyway, killing thousands of
people in the process, it just didn’t feel like a decision that the Daenerys we’d followed
for eight season would make. OK, let’s move on to Jon. Jon had the most screen time
throughout the whole show and probably the most
interesting character arc out of anyone else, the secret son of Rhaegar
Targaryen and Lyanna Stark, the man who is an actual
mixture of ice and fire. What was the point of
Jon being a Targaryen? The big reveal of this
information was a huge part of the narrative, yet it
was only used as a tool to partly justify the descent
of Daenerys into madness. Finally on character development, let’s look at Jaime
Lannister, the Kingslayer. Season one’s most-loathed character was transformed throughout eight seasons as we learned more and more about his past and saw him perform
noble and selfless acts. This all peaked when he deserted Cersei to go and fight at
Winterfell to save Westeros from the Night King and
the Army of the Dead. After this, he again deserts
a lover, Brienne this time, to go and save Cersei,
but this move isn’t quite the selfless act that the previous one was and actually reduces
a lot of the hard work that was put into building him up. Were we supposed to think
that this commitment to his sibling was noble? It certainly didn’t seem it. Three, anticlimactic moments. By far, the biggest
anticlimactic moment for me in season eight was the
death of the Night King. Yes, the battle was huge
and cinematically beautiful, when you brightened it up a little bit, but it wasn’t what some
“Game of Thrones” fans were waiting for. Here’s why. The opening scenes of
season one, episode one, showed members of the Night’s
Watch going beyond the Wall and coming face-to-face
with a White Walker. The side narrative throughout the show was that the wars between
wannabe kings of Westeros were actually nothing
compared to the threat that was building beyond the Wall. When we were introduced to the Night King, he immediately became
the ultimate villain, incredibly powerful and
seemingly undefeatable. So when this enemy was defeated
midway through season eight, it seemed like a bit of an anticlimax, not to mention the way
in which it happened. First of all, we didn’t get
the see any of the skilled swordsmen battling the
Night King nor his henchmen. I just want to make it
clear, I have no problem with Arya being the person
who killed the Night King. I actually really liked this, but we were teased this main event of Jon and the Night King having a battle. He didn’t get to fight him at Hardhome. He didn’t get to fight him on the lake, and it just felt like
the Battle of Winterfell was where it was going to happen, yet what we got was Jon chasing him around and being blocked by an undead dragon, and the Night King not fighting anyone and then being killed
without a battle by Arya. It just felt a little bit
like an anticlimax to me. Another anticlimax for myself was the death of Cersei and Jaime. The story arc of the sibling lovers threatened more than once to
end in betrayal or murder, but in the end, the two
were killed by falling rocks while trying to run away from Daenerys and Drogon’s fire frenzy on the Red Keep. A little bit of a letdown. Another anticlimax was Jon ending up back at the Night’s Watch. I know this is a circular story and George R.R. Martin does like those, but it didn’t feel like it was
what his character deserved. Jon had an epic storyline with
his true heritage revealed as Aegon Targaryen, but
it all came to nothing, and he found himself back at Castle Black going ranging with the wildlings. Despite Arya killing the Night King, I do feel like she was
underused in this series. Since killing the Freys, we never saw her use her faceless training again, which could have been for
some more interesting viewing than seeing her ride off
on a random white horse. It was pretty anticlimactic for myself that the Unsullied and
the Dothraki just left. The final episode shows the
Unsullied and Dothraki armies hyped for more wars at the start but ends with them leaving in boats, watching the person who killed their queen walk past without doing anything. They say time’s a healer, but I’m not sure it works wonders like that. Four, plot holes. Season eight was “Game of
Thrones”‘ final season, so all of the loose ends
should have been tied up, and the audience shouldn’t be
left asking questions, right? Wrong. Here are just a few that
are keeping me up at night. So what about Bran becoming the king? As much as I personally like this twist, it was a little unbelievable due to the way that it happened, especially when all the people deciding seem to have a far more obvious choice. Tyrion loves stories, right? And who had a better
story than Bran Stark? How about Jon? Jon went from Stark
bastard to Lord Commander to King in the North. He was literally killed and resurrected. He was the Prince that was Promised who slayed his lover for
the good of the realm. Now, let’s send that
guy to the Night’s Watch where he can watch over what, exactly? No one even talked about
him as a possibility when they were choosing the
next leader of Westeros. The reason for this: It
was part of an agreement to please the Unsullied and Yara Greyjoy, who felt that Jon should be
punished for killing Daenerys. While this is understandable
to a certain degree, it feels hollow as the Unsullied are seen minutes later boarding a
ship to the Isle of Naath, and the Greyjoys were not a
powerful-enough house to demand this sort of respect from
the other lords of Westeros. Sansa and Arya both had great stories worthy of becoming queen, but again, neither of them were mentioned. So Bran became king, but
how can the Three-Eyed Raven actually become king anyway? Bran went from this
strange, emotionless person who would stare blankly
before saying something that made others feel uncomfortable
to the king of Westeros, and none of the characters
even batted an eyelid. The last Three-Eyed Raven
lived north of the Wall and merged with a tree. Why is Bran so different? That’s just another thing
that isn’t explained. Who is the Prince of Dorne,
how did he come to power, and why are the Martells
suddenly so unimportant in season eight despite
being such a big focus of earlier seasons? And finally, why does the
Night’s Watch even exist anymore? The White Walkers are wiped
out, wildlings are allies, the Wall is destroyed near East Watch, and various castles along
the Wall are unmanned. Is there any point in restoring them? Five, forgotten characters. It became very clear in the final seasons that a few characters
really served no purpose to the final outcome of the show. Where’s Jaqen H’ghar? The Faceless Man is one of the characters who trained Arya Stark. At the end of season six, he
let her go back to Westeros, and we haven’t heard from him since. What about Daario Naharis? The former lover of
Daenerys was left in Meereen at the end of season six
to keep an eye on the city. We never heard from him again. Surely his men could have been used in the battle against
the dead, apparently not. And what about Ellaria Sand? At the end of season seven,
Ellaria Sand was left to watch her daughter die in
front of her in the Red Keep. We never saw or heard from her again. Six, unrealistic events. Yes, I am going to go there. In a show about dragons,
magic, and the undead, I’m gonna call out some
unrealistic things that happened. Don’t worry, the irony isn’t lost on me. First of all, let’s
talk about how far Arya must have had to jump
to kill the Night King. Yep, that looks like a long way. I know she has skills,
but that seems silly. How about when Dany
didn’t see Euron’s ships from half a mile high? This unlikely ambush resulted
in Rhaegal being killed and Dany’s chances of taking
King’s Landing being reduced. One of the positives about having a dragon should be that you can see
things coming, apparently not. During this ambush, Drogon and
Dany fled from Euron’s ships, but when it came to taking King’s Landing, the pair destroyed his
whole fleet with ease, along with all the scorpions
on the wall at King’s Landing. Why didn’t they just do that before? Remember when Bronn
aggressively threatened Tyrion and Jaime with a crossbow? Well, apparently that was
forgiven pretty easily following the burning the King’s Landing. What about undead Viserion? So undead Viserion
burned through the Wall, which had protected the
Seven Kingdoms for years, but he couldn’t burn
through a mound of stones to kill Jon Snow. So No. 7, the changing
of the main villain. From episode three to six,
we saw three different main villains: the Night King
at the Battle of Winterfell, Cersei during episode four and five, and finally Daenerys in episode six. This quick switching
between the antagonists was a little confusing,
and it wasn’t helped by the lack of time for all
of these events to sink in. Eight, character deaths. All right, so I think this
show would have actually been better with more of the
main characters dying. “Game of Thrones” lost a lot
of of its unpredictability when it was drawing to a close. The show has done it over and over again killing main characters,
yet it seemed pretty obvious that the key characters
were going to survive the Battle of Winterfell as it was clear that their storylines
still needed to play out. I never felt like there was
a danger that Jon, Dany, Tyrion, Sansa, or Arya
might die in the battle, which is something that
just wouldn’t have happened in previous seasons. Nine, continuity mistakes. Yes, this season had quite a few. The most memorable was the coffee cup in plain sight on the table
after the Battle of Winterfell. There are also two
modern-day water bottles on the floor in the scene
before Bran is named king. Something that many fans
noticed is the inconsistency of the way that King’s
Landing was depicted. All of these are apparently the same city, yet they don’t look anything alike. And finally, eagle-eyed viewers spotted that Daenerys is wearing different wigs when she arrived at Winterfell
in season eight, episode one. Let me know in the comments
if you think I missed anything or if you disagree altogether.

    Am I the only one bothered by the size of The Unsullied Army. One minute there’s 2 small tired platoons post Battle of Winterfell, then somehow after winning at Kings Landing they’re celebrating with an army larger then when they left Meereen. Instantly annoyed me

  2. G-Fam Squad

    Jon being sent back to “nights watch” in season 8 defeats the whole purpose of him being one of the most important characters.

  3. MxRasheedxM

    ???

  4. Daniel Burke

    It needed far more than the three episodes you suggest to make us accept that shite.

  5. Noel Ogden

    Can we just delete season 8, forget that horrible season ever happened and have a do-over? Seriously. I thought the Battle of the Bastards was their worst moment, but season 8 proved me wrong in nearly every way imaginable. I know how they should have done it and that was not it.

  6. Free play.

    I'm glad that drogon burned the iron throne. The iron throne represented the wheel Dany has been trying to break, and drogon finally broke it even when dany had died.

  7. Praisejune2006

    How was Jon snow really a targaryen if he got burned in season one… It makes no sense

  8. Professor Adams

    Arya killing the Night king was a dam disgrace. She didn't deserve it.

  9. greenman

    I think that the White Walkers should have had more of a conquest, where they took over most of Westeros. I think that the series finale should have been about an epic last stand at Kings Landing

  10. Wilddoggz

    I wouldnt go as fa as to say the characters are plot holes since their last scenes pretty much explain their future

  11. Pietro Speroni di Fenizio

    I think it makes totally sense for Bran to be king, simply because someone who can see the future, and can act in a way to let one future happen instead of another will look like the most lucky person alive. Why no one suggested someone else? Because if someone did Bran would have done something in the past to make sure that did not happen. Just blowing some air, moving his hand, will simply mix the cards about the future. Which also would explains why he tries not to move at all, until he is king. And then relaxes.

    Yeah, that whole geography of King's Landing thing was proof attached via their personal petards right there in the making of show that Doofus & Dingleberry misjudged the value of their own work in a magic-mirror way divorced from the reality. Showing the location scouts trying to set something up, they just couldn't figure out a way to make the spectacle of effects fit within the confines of the real city they used for King's Landing in the past. Looking around kind of aimlessly, someone finally thought, hey, we've got all this flat space out back with the Winterfell sets, and Ireland is already on lock and used to working with us. Perfect solution, right? Well, it is then admitted, it's perfect as long as the payoff is worth it, if those spectacular effects balance with giving up the atmosphere of a location shoot. Have they NOT been watching the first few seasons and listened to all of those professionals handing out awards, critics, and, most importantly, the very attentive fan base for a decade? OF COURSE we were going to notice that King's Landing was suddenly reduced to a big, flat space with some smud smeared on it, which pretty much guaranteed poor Peter Dinklage looked utterly ridiculous doing something that was equally ridiculous–the little tiny guy screaming up into the wind so that no one could have heard him but all those big bolts could have torn him to bits easily enough. If Cersei lost, well, at least she would've gotten to kill Tyrion, and if she won, well, she'd always remember getting to kill Tyrion. She can send Bronn off to the North with that crossbow so urgently that he couldn't finish with the brothel babes, but she won't let the ones with the scorpions shoot him while she's there to enjoy it?!? The many friends and loved ones who did tours in Afghanistan and Iraq tell me smud goes beyond simple ingredients of sandy dirt and water mixing to make mud, with transformed components combining through mystical alchemy into an entirely new, unique, and utterly foul substance known for properties allowing it to stick to anything and muck up everything–which pretty much sounds like the material that went into the script was scraped from the new King's Landing set!!!

  13. Mayank Thakur

    Jon Should've killed The Night King, in the last episode of the season finale.

  14. Mike Thomas

    Jon should have became king

  15. Srideep

    i hope those two useless writers see this vid.

  16. Christopher Roman

    Such an awful final season; s8 literally ruined the entire series. Epic failure.

  17. David Lara

    Season 1-4 = gold. Season 5-6= copper. Season 7= stone. Season 8 = wet shit

  18. 1BadCompagnie

    When dany was killed i t a ught it was aria

  19. Itchy Knee

    As a piece of entertainment, I found it entertaining. As part of the bigger picture of “Game of Thrones”…utter shit.

  20. Austen Hilton

    Night King and white walkers: unexplained

    Azor Ahai: unexplained

    Jon is a Targaryen: unexplained

    Bran’s role in season 8: USELESS!

  21. Austen Hilton

    Arya jumped from the free throw line to kill the night king

  22. Gary Mehmet

    I do agree. The actors and actresses were absolutely without any doubt superb; every one of them. The casting was the best I have ever seen in anything I have watched. But the story writing since, going it alone without the books for frame of reference.. it just felt too slow paced for too long with just a few little moments of excitement and anticipation for what was going to come, sprinkled in and then fast forward to season 8 and everything was happpening at such speed, that it could not be anything else to anybody who loved GOT, but disappointing for the potential that was missed.
    It was just too rushed.If any programme deserved to go on for extra seasons it was this one. Too many programmes go on and on and not because of fresh new content or ideas, but this one had so much more to offer.. I think I share the same feeling as some of the reviewers here when I say that I think this programme should have had 2 more seasons to really finish the story telling. But that is just my selfish view as a fan of the show.. I did love the ending for the Stark Family. It was nice to see things work out (mostly) for them after everything they had been through.

  23. Love 13

    It might be a disappointment for you, over expectations, not for me. I just took it as a show,and hence didn't disappointed. U all idoits are disappointed bcoz the show didn't turned out the way you wanted it.?

  24. shingeki no

    Bells use « madness » on Daenerys. It’s very effective…

  25. itzHulex

    Night king: killed by one stab in the knee
    The Mountain: stabbed in the neck and in the eye yet survives, needs to be killed by being thrown from a high tower.

  26. Abigail Knox-Leet

    Excellent !

  27. Abigail Knox-Leet

    I totally agree with you in all points! Hated how Jon Snow was treated ! Useless ending ! All for nothing

  28. Akshat Singh

    Who else's initial response was "he managed to cut it down to 9?!"?

  29. Dream Team Expert

    That's the reason why Bryce Walker died

  30. Eijk de Mol van Otterloo

    Am I the only one who is wondering why there weren’t hundreds of people in the production of the series who told Dumb&Dumber during the making that it has to be changed. I mean, how can it happen that so much people worked on such a horrible scenario. I’m just… disappointed… epic, i don’t now one of those.

  31. VIKKEFAR The Bunny

    i totally have seen a lot of pics and clips with that coffee cup. but i checked this morning again and again but could not see it. i think that hbo have ficsed it.

  32. NeostormXLMAX

    Now im glad i never bothered with got lol

  33. ameer zaher

    Forgiving Bron makes sense, that’s how his relationship with Tyrion works…
    Plus the wall is made of ice so it makes sense that fire melts it, and i guess the dragon fire can break through walls with momentum but not necessarily without it

  34. rowell669

    I think I can think of more than nine. You would think games of thrones was too good to mess up. Turns out, not so much.

  35. rowell669

    My problem is they gave us all this history, and storylines that meant nothing. What was the significance of the crypts at winterfell? Why must there always be a stark in winterfell? Who sent the catspaw dagger after Bran? Who was Craster? And why were his sons turned into white walkers? Why did Gilly and Baby Sam survive when they had no purpose? Why was Beric resurrected so many times? Couldn't Melissandra resurrect him too? Why was Jon resurrected? Why did the Starks even have direwolves? What was the song of ice and fire? What was Bran doing during the battle? Why was bran the three eyed raven? Why couldnt he be lord of winterfell? Why did Tyrion, who was just in jail, get to make a speech and choose the king, wtf?? Why did grey worm even have a say at all? Dany had just destroyed a whole city, killed the queen, etc, and Jon is punished for killing Dany? Why? It was ok for Dany to kill Cersei, but no one can kill Dany? How does that make sense? Why didnt Bran pardon Jon? Why didnt Sansa go up against Cersei, that would make more sense than Dany. Why didnt Sansa and the Hound have a better reunion? All of the reunions were underplayed with little to no dialogue. After we had been waiting to see them for years. Why was Jon's secret revealed off screen?? Wtf? It was one of the most important scenes! Turns out, it meant nothing, like everything else. Not one storyline, not one had a payoff. Everything we'd been trying to figure out for YEARS meant nothing, had no payoff. No answers. We watched for nothing. I feel completely betrayed and cheated. What happened to all the magic in the show? The night king was created with magic, he should've died through magic. I truly believe they sabotaged the show on purpose. Why else would it be THIS BAD? It like it was written by someone who'd never watched the show. They should've gotten the people who helped write "the world of ice and fire." They know everything about the show and books. They should write an alternate ending .

  36. Cyber Spinosaur

    Only 9?

  37. Anandhu Radhakrishnan

    Is that true that season 9 is coming….

  38. Yann Lars

    I believe the producers can't allow themselves to deliver FULLFILLING content and keep TV consumers entirely happy with their favorite show. You need some frustration. Remember the entertainment isn't here to provide you with amazing content, it's here to make sure you're buying the next shitty product. If people are used to a certain standard which Game of Thrones could have been if the ending wasn't so horrible, then it's going to become even harder to please and sell your products.

    If you want to push viewers to the new content, which is the most important thing, you can't have them rewatching old stuff.

    The solution? Do a shitty ending and burn everything, and the writers did just that.

    Anyway I may not express all of this very well, but this shitty ending was obviously very deliberate and for business reasons which are going deeper than just finishing in a hurry.

  39. Super Saiyan 3

    jaimes story arch was the worst misdirection

  40. Super Saiyan 3

    shit story ending

  41. Super Saiyan 3

    there are so many more unrealistic things that happened you didn't mention.

  42. Faizol Azha

    What a waste after nearly 2 years in waiting for the final season..
    What we got only garbage storyline..too many loopholes

  43. Journey of My Life

    It was totally shit in ep6 when dany die
    Really Dissappointed just for this

  44. Patricia Rainey

    I was scared I was the only person who felt this way. The actors were great. The books are breathtaking. It was the last 2 seasons that didnt play out well for me. I cant wait for the next book!!!

  45. Marissa B.

    Two of my issues with GoT season 8 that weren't mentioned, would be the lack of direwolves and all the fan service that was used.

  46. Samuel Esparza

    #8 is so spot on

  47. Last Fire

    John should have been king ?
    He had the best clam to it and he was best for the throne

  48. 74's Gaming

    is it diplo?

  49. Voldy356

    At least we have seven great seasons. Actually, let's just pretend season 7 is the last one, and season 8 doesn't exist. Works for me.

  50. Erik The Viking

    "Winter has lasted more than five years!" Lasted literally 2 days

  51. Quadira Holden

    For me, the worst of it was how the character arcs were rendered moot by the end. All those plot points abandoned for a rushed ending. I'm especially upset by Jon, Jaime, and Daenerys, who became unrecognizable in favor of tying up all loose ends.

  52. Google User

    Cersei should have dealt been before knight king

  53. Gaming 4ever

    Petition to delete this season and remake a new one! With 10 episodes.

  54. awanish mishra

    The dragon queen is look like real queen until season 7 and 8some episode but last episode is worst ending

  55. Katja Mokha

    As frustrating as Jamie's return to Cersei was, I thought that it was quite true to GOT's brand – doing the thing the audience least expects. Jamie was originally the proof that people can change but his character reverting towards his earlier seasons' self shows how sometimes it isn't permanent. It should've taken longer for his ark to be reversed but I feel that it was sort of a reaction to the circumstances. They all handled it differently and it turns out that Jamie wasn't as strong or altruistic as he once appeared. Cersei always had that power over him and the thought of losing her and their baby was enough to remind him of his devotion to her their entire life.

  56. spackoid

    Who has a better story than Bran? Everybody
    Season 8 was unforgivable

  57. Donovan

    Corporate Social Engineering has been successful in convincing some "Fans/Customers" that Season 8 was a logically written story and those who disagree are idiots. Mind controlled Sheep , convinced they are independent thinking Wolves , by design to protect corporate interest.

  58. Mr Stock

    Arya, Sam, Bran, Tyrion and Sansa should have died in episode 3 of season 8. They all seemed to have built up moments leading to inevitable death and yet they just survive. Would have been better if the Night King actually won and the remaining survivors had to flee South resulting in a Night King vs Kingslanding vs Jon and Dany Survivors battle.

  59. Jeremy Dale

    Just got done watching this. I thought people were exaggerating how bad it was. They weren't…
    Easily the worse season of the show.

  60. Gold Animal

    Hahah nice breakdown. I liked the serie though. And agree with your points.

  61. Alan Gopherbee

    It really was awful. Just horribly, indescribably terrible.

  62. Galactic Bird

    Glad I literally didn't watch a single episode of Game of Thrones. Seriously

  63. Alfonso Abad

    Your last face was exactly my face when the season 8 was over.

  64. BIN DYCÜ

    Was I the only one who thought that Jon should have never rode rheagal

  65. BIN DYCÜ

    I hated it that Arya killed the night king

  66. Amoh prince

    It's not fair at all to end such a big TV show that way…. It's indeed a great disappointment…

  67. Amoh prince

    Y did they rush.. We wouldn't have minded watching sn 9??

  68. zohaib Mughal

    When arya was coming to kil night king the whole white walker was forget to protect night king

  69. Andy Wijaya

    Great review

  70. umesh mahale

    The animal (dragon) understood that these people are fighting for that Chair , so he burned it…
    Animals r better than humans…?

  71. John Kellett

    When Season 1 of Game Of Thrones was first put on the air waves people weren't really sold on the premise of the Writers, Directors, and Producers, Fantasy world. I would say after Season 3 this show became a Fantasy Fictions Fans Dream come true…..When Season 5 and 6 came along I guess the Egotistical Fan base thought they themselves could write, Direct and act better than the cast and crew themselves…..Season 7 and 8 the neurosis grew leaps and bounds to the point of total disgust and malicious hatred Towards a project "THE FANS" they themselves could not control….That in itself is a dangerous slippery slope….Sound familiar to anyone out there?????

  72. Tho Le

    I disagree altogether. You’re an idiot.

  73. Ron Ryan

    Shitty writing made by people who had no idea how to end it.

  74. Pede Meyer

    I wonder why nobody made a video that explains why season 8 was so bad……?

  75. Cesar Alejandro Romero Ochoa

    y ahora que? nos quedamos con el amargo trago de este final 🙁

  76. Miss77xxx

    I just watched the final episode. I have to recover from it. I am so disappointed.

  77. Charlie Curilan

    I understand all the points raised here but somehow I'm not THAT disappointed as the rest of the world.

  78. Madfrazzer

    Agreed, I thought I wouldn't agree, because I didn't wanna believe but what u are saying is so true.

    The only think with which I disagreed in this analysis – was the death of Jamie and Cersei – the collapsing of the castle on her – symbolizing all her plans collapsing on her and Jamie. Yes – it probably could have been more, but it seemed reasonable.

  80. Irish Technical Thinker

    I stopped watching after season 1. Absolutely awful. Glad I didn't watch it. Funny to read comments of people's lives melting over it.

  81. TNPsalim

    bran did nothing this season like nothing !

  82. Mel Ullom

    I like funny dirty shows but this show I don't like because it support sibling sex which is sick.

  83. R. N.

    all men must watch season 8… all men must be trolled

  84. Nick King Televised

    Here's my unanswered questions: How did the Small House Mormont end up with a Valyrian Steel sword? What did the flames say to Varys? What was the name of the one who spoke? Did Bran (3eyedraven) know what was going to happen the whole time? Was the Night King the 13th Lord Commander, and was he a Stark? Why did the NK seem to have no interest in killing Jon, despite having numerous opportunities? Was Gendry Cersei's first child with Robert? I could go on for hours.

    I think it would have helped a little if season 7 and 8 had 10 episodes instead of 7 and 6. Also yes season 8 was a huge disappointment, but i disagree with those who says its the worst thing ever. Its clearly the worst season of Game of Thrones but its far from the worst season of a tv show ever made.

  86. DISS EAZE

    I EXPECTED AN UNION OF ARYA AND HER DIE WOLF!

  87. Mahmud Hossain

    They should have hired the indian tv director ????then you all see 1 episode = 100 ?????

  88. Hs generation

    John should be king of the 7 kingdoms

  89. Tricia Roy

    Totally agree on every point.

  90. Ace Hardy

    They could save it by making a movie. Night king could’ still be alive, mother of dragons can return from the dead, as well as Cersei… it’ll sell out in theaters. ?

  91. Hrs Sehrawat. Jattitude

    Created to much hype about white walkers but tottaly waste…..

  92. Bo0stard

    Is there no season 9 coming? Did the producers said so.?

  93. Just Curious

    It is way simpler… They needed two years to make six episodes.. that should tell how arrogant the makers got. Take vikings 20 episodes a yeare with same productional stuff and battle scenes… After season 6 the creators became a bit of whiners…. Why it took so long to make this. And there is the problem. Think about it…. Game of Thrones is destroyed by the arrogance of its lazy makers. Yes… the makers got in to there fame and got lazy…The delay of season 7 and very long delay of season 8 with less episodes was so telling,…. And I am going again reverin to Vikings… It is not game of Thrones…. but it became beter and more episodes in a Year….. Vikings is why I dont believe the production crap on GoT….. A series after season 8 I don't care fore any more.

  94. Juliano

    4,5,6 Episodes of Season 8 were bad for me.

    Also Jon Snow becoming Aegon Targaryan was useless.

  95. JM Cee

    ….I still don't understand the honeycomb joke…..
    Also :
    Why did Jon say that Ghost "didn't belong" at Winterfell? Is it me or did they rework old footage of John petting Ghost and splice it in so the fans would stop saying "Pet your doggo!"
    How could Sam be a meister when he never finished his training? I know he cured greyscale (once) but….he mostly cleaned out chamber pots. He's supposed to be the head Physician and he only knows about one illness! You can't just leave a guy with a closet full of drugs and let him just experiment. What if the King actually gets sick? Wouldn't he owe a hue library fee for the books he never returned?
    If The Hound understood the importance of not being obsessed with revenge, why did he give his life to kill his "brother" who was clearly more like a robot than a human anymore? Why not redeem himself by committing the rest of his life to the protection of Bran, or Sansa, or even Arya?
    Why didn't anyone challenge the order of Dany to make Gendry a Lord since she never had the authority to do that. She was still a Starbucks-drinking-wannabe when she gave that title out.
    Likewise, how could Braun prove that he was given High Garden when neither Tyrion nor Jaime had the power to do that either? Not even a piece of paper to document this and we are suppose to believe that whoever was in charge would just move out and give up all power because Gendry and Braun walked into their respective castles and said "Get out of my castle – I'm now in charge!".
    Why didn't Melassandra even TRY to bring anyone back from the dead? Why was she so sure her only job was to be a fire starter and an Arya cheerleader? She knows she's not good at knowing what "The Lord of Light" actually wants her to do. She bet everything on Stannis and then John and was wrong both times. She could have made an effort.

    And how could Tyrion be left out of the History book? I didn't think that was funny at all.
    Dany gave her speech in High Valerian but the Dothraki cheered and the English-speakers were alarmed. Only the Unsullied would have understood her.
    Why did Arya spend the whole show trying to get back to her family only to turn into Dora the Explorer and not care if she ever saw them again? She didn't even promise to come home for Christmas!

    And lastly….. how did Dany have time for a shower and a total change of hair and make-up after attacking the city and before the Nazi speech? Did she have the costume packed in a bag and tethered to her dragon in case she won? I thought only Missande knew how to do her hair and that's why she was so upset to lose her. It's not easy finding a professional hair dresser who knows how to do color, braiding AND hair extensions. Especially during wartime.
    So many questions…………

  96. DURVESH PATIL

    The Main Disappointment was Spoiling of Danys Character…

  97. panzaa boi

    Season 9 and we are good!

  98. Gav Hastings

    It really was a disappointing end to what was a great show. Why they rushed it boggles the mind. They could/should have gone a couple more seasons to really wring out the story and characters.
    Just IMHO, but what would I know.
    TAXI…

  99. grumpy tank

    If bran turned into night king that would be good twist
    This season has no sense anyway infact i thought the quality started falling in season 7

  100. Y P

    Please everyone stop blaming HBO it's only D&D's fault, absolutely noone else is to blame.
