It felt like they let 50 college interns each write one page of script, then filmed the mess without editing. Peter Dinklage did a wonderful job with his soliloquies. The CGI of Drogon was incredible as usual. But loyal fans were left with waaaaaayyyyy too many loose ends. What happened to Varys' rings? Where were the bodies of Freres Clegane? How will the Iron Bank be repaid? Is Drogon bringing Dany to the Children of the Forest? Will she be the next Queen of Winter? Will Sansa and Tyrion drop a litter of red-headed dwarves? Why did Grey Worm have a prodigious bulge in his trousers when he was marching Jon to captivity? Is Bran the Banal still the three eyed raven? And do any of us really even care?

The highlight of the evening was seeing the promo for WestWorld. Hopefully HBO won't ruin that epic, too.

Plus it will never be proved that Jon is fire proof! Or if Jon can really command drakarys.

To be fair, Dany was burnt in fire, but was never subject to drakarys fire herself.

I saw this today somewhere on the Interwebs - it about sums it up:

Bottom line is this: the first six or seven seasons held us enthralled with great writing, great acting, a plausible story arc (for a show with wizards and dragons), and a tangible emotional connection that only great series can generate. The final season simply lacked almost all of that and it was painful to watch these great actors whom we loved, have to try to make this work.

Definitely not a fan of how they had Jon murder Danny like that!! Complete bull****. She loved that man and in time would have listened to his kindred spirit.
Bran is boring AF. So naturally he was the safe pick. SMFH.

But still.... Absolutely the most Epic Show in television history!

I can hope that the spin-offs come close in entertainment....

In normal, real life, relationship, usually couples will talk face to face about transgression (e.g. razing a whole city) for way more than a few minutes before breaking off the relationship, let alone murdering the other party .... hmm ....

Tyrion did make a good point, namely, Dany has grown to believe her way is the only way, and everyone cheered her on along the way.

The real plot hole is really that, how can Dany be anywhere without secret service surrounding her?!? Even Bran the Broken gets wheeled around by Gentry in armor.
