    Well that was, uh seriously boring. I wouldn’t say it was atrocious or anything, but definitely not satisfying for me. D&D really should not have directed, scenes like Dany’s death just ended up so dull and I think a better director could have done so much more with the episode. As far as the story of the episode goes, they pretty much dug their graves in previous episodes so there was really nothing they could have done that would have made this finale work. Maybe better writers could have at least given us better insight into Dany’s thinking, but she basically turned into this completely delusion and one dimensional villain overnight.

    Bran being King? I get why they would think he’d make a good ruler, so I guess I’m not that upset with it as an idea, but in context of the entire show it’s vastly disappointing. I mean, they barely cared about him for 7 seasons, even going without him for an entire year, but they make him king? Maybe they didn’t know that’s where it was going at the beginning, or even middle of the show but I just don’t understand why they’d make him such an afterthought for the entire run of the show. Even after he became the three eyed raven he was never given much to do, he never became the interesting and powerful character we were told he would become. It just feels like they were trying too hard to be clever.

    As for the other Starks, I’m mostly okay with their endings. I would have loved to see Sansa get the Iron Throne, but Queen of the newly independent Kingdom of the North is a very fitting end for her, I’m sure they’ll be much better off than Westeros. Jon’s ending was a bit underwhelming, but looks like he’s gonna be King too, just beyond the wall which is pretty fitting. I have no idea where Arya’s ending came from. Am I forgetting about her being interested in exploration? That seemed to come out of nowhere. Like, cool, good for her, but why? I guess she just can’t chill out for a minute, gotta find something to do.

    I still expect the show to win Drama Series, directing, probably for episode 5, although I think I like The Long Night better. Not sure which I’d say is really the better directing achievement but one episode had me on the edge of my seat and the other yawning. I think Clarke will be competitive to win, but I’d still bet on Oh, despite Comer being much better this season on KE (something I wouldn’t have said of Killing Eve season 1), Harington is still on the fence for a nomination but he’ll probably get in. I’m still thinking Headey probably gets her overdue emmy, Williams could steal some votes, she was much better this year but I see them doing what they often do and giving it to the overdue veteran over better performances. I doubt Turner is nominated, unfortunately. Dinklage is basically a lock. Coster-Waldau can probably sneak in with a nomination. We’ve already seen some terribly written episodes win writing for this show so I honestly wouldn’t rule it out, but it feels like the backlash is almost entirely to the writing so, probably not gonna happen.

    One more thing, Bran the Broken? That’s sort of a fucked up nickname for their new king, no?

    This pretty much summarized my thoughts on the Emmys awards prospects (though, I think Comer is going to be too much of a problem for Oh to overcome). But I can see it maybe being snubbed from the Globes (season 6 would’ve been the perfect time for a Drama Globe win but nope).

    (though, I think Comer is going to be too much of a problem for Oh to overcome)

    That could be right, but even then it’s a little hard to believe Clarke wins after not even being nominated last year. Obviously she was better this season than any before but so much of the complaints about the season are about her character. She’ll either be punished by voters for that, or rewarded because she was able to do such good work despite the terrible writing she was working with. I wouldn’t be that shocked if Oh and Comer split votes but Clarke still lost to Laura Linney, who no one’s really talking about but she had a terrific season and the actors love that show and the emmys love her.

    The episode has a 5.2/10 rating on imdb with 30k votes so far. Ouch.

    11,000 of them voted ‘1’. I call BS.

    Funny because the “1” reviews themselves call BS.

    The episode in itself is great. The cinematography is unbelievably stunning.

    But My God, what an anticlimactic way to end the show. You can’t help but feel cheated. It’s like the writers were winging it. Poor handling of characters. Jesus!

    Emilia Clarke is the MVP for me.

    Typical…
    I mean a disappointed legitimate voter give 5 or 4… ‘1’ is BS.

    As for the reviews, you can see people downvote every positive review and upvote every negative one, even if it’s an idiotic review like “Dumb and Dumber” and all that stuff. Clearly the reddit trolls are all over the place

    Bran the Broken, First of His Name. For fuck’s sake. Now the world will hopefully see what genuine hacks Bsnioff & Weiss really are. That was just so ridiculous on so many levels…oh boy! I just…I can’t imagine how bad this finale is going to age moving forward. Dracarys! Burn this finale down forever, Drogon! Wherever you are, since the writers didn’t bother to tell us that part.

    On the contrary, I believe this finale will age very well once all this internet mess settles.

     

    And Bran being the King probably comes from George by the way

    If it is, he’ll actually take the time to set it up and write it to where it makes sense and feels satisfying for readers.

    No it won’t. History doesn’t look kindly to genuinely bad series finales, regardless of what oblivious fanboys think about posterity.

    Putting aside how you could think this is a good finale, the Internet is not a fad. Things snowball and reinforced perceptions become new realities. It sucks, but that is how it works. Also, I feel like when people talk about things aging well, it is partly because they will be discovered by new viewers in perpetuity. Something with disproportionate acclaim and viewership ages well because the few people who saw it originally stick by it and people who see it for the first time later wish that they had seen it earlier. Game of Thrones is the most popular show in the world and the finale is divisive. It is going to take another generation to reassess it.
