This has been the worst season, by far.
The last couple of seasons have been fairly bad, but this has obviously been the culmination of all these seasons "plots" coming to a close.
What a complete disaster.
That being said, I went into the final episode expecting to hate it. To my utter amazement, I think I actually liked it. I'm not sure why, my guess right now is that it was "okay" and okay is currently the highest ranking compliment amongst my final season comments.
I feel like many of the conclusions mostly made sense, but they were just rushed.
My problems were many though.
- The complete character assassination of Jaime Lannister. He was build up from a season one bad guy and progressed right up to a righteous, battled hardened, likeable character only for the writers to nose dive his whole development in a few words.
- Bran as King? Seriously...? Meh.
- Arya's character was fantastic in early seasons. Then she vanished - presumably in training. Finally to reappear, make a single jab to kill The Night King.
- The Night King's death. What the fuck was that? We spent 8 fucking seasons building up to it and he dies in the first battle. He doesn't kill anyone! All he ever did was raise his hands like "come at me bro". So, they came at him, bro and he died.
I could go on, but I'll end it here.
What did we expect from a series with a dragon called Drogon... ? Sigh.
