GoT: Winter is over and our watch has ended…
I really wanted to see Jon or Arya take out Grey Worm...
final episode of ‘Game of Thrones’ having finally aired the internet trolls and
haters are out in full force spreading their hate and venom to any who will
listen about how much they hated the series finale. I am neither a troll nor
hater, despite what certain people say when I speak out against the abysmal ‘Star
Trek: Discovery’ (fitting that their acronym is ‘STD’…something you definitely
do not want…). I thought the series finale of GoT was good and a fitting end to
the series. Was it everything I had hoped for? No. I held out hope Jon would
claim his birthright and be the King he was supposed to be. But this is ‘Game
of Thrones’ after all, if you were expecting a perfect and happy ending you
really were not paying attention all these years.
As I stated
in a previous blog post I feel the last few seasons of GoT were rushed. But I also
understand there is more to consider when making a TV series such as the
business end of making a TV series. When writing books such as this that George
RR Martin has done, there really is no limit to what he can and has put down on
the printed page. But when making a TV series there are so many variables that
come into play when telling your story such as money, actors, crew, locations,
studios, viewers, time…so many things to juggle and unfortunately sometimes
compromises have to be made to tell the story. So the timing and logistical
issues that have played a part in GoT these last few years I do not blame the
show runners for. I think they did the best they could with all the variables
they had to deal with.
spin-offs already in the works (prequels) and given the way the series ended
there are definitely plot threads a sequel series could pick up on. Some
going to find as she sails west? Will she find the other end of Esso’s or
perhaps another unexplored continent?
with the Doltraki? Did they stay in Westeros or go back to Essos? Did they sail
away with the Unsullied?
more threats beyond the wall for Jon Snow to face? Maybe the Night King didn’t
bring his entire army with him…and maybe those forces were unchanged after his
downfall because of the spells still helping to hold up the wall that’s still
the Mad Kings kid? I know at the end of the day it does not matter now but I’d
kinda like to know one way or the other…
I love this
show and as a fan I found the finale satisfying. To all the haters I say this:
