is anyone else watching the last 30 minutes of what was once the greatest fucking show in television be reduced to bad endings, write-offs and stupid conversations that did nothing to bring the show to a close ? or is it just me ? #GameOfThrones

And here’s ALLL the reasons why it was terrible.
(actual image of me talking about Game of Thrones to anyone who will listen)
Season 8 Should Have Been Broken Up into TWO Seasons:
OR S7 and S8 should have been two FULL seasons. Fight me… and everyone else on the internet.
I think it may go down as one of the worst mistakes in TV history that the showrunners of Game of Thrones decided to end on two shortened seasons. Love or hate seasons 7 and 8, you have to admit that they’re way too rushed

Dan and Dave Can’t Write?
In points the below video makes perfectly clear, it sucks to come to the conclusion that without George RR Martin’s actual storylines and not just an outline of how it will end, D & D went way off the reservation and out of the remote realm of good ideas and created both the zombie heist story line, dragons being shot out of mid-air because ‘Dany forgot’ (?!?!?!?!), and completely glossing over Bran as the three-eyed raven, wtf he was doing during ALL of this, and oh yea why was the Night King such a big deal, only to be sorta easily defeated and then we’re never told much else about it? If I ever happen to see them at a party at Comic-con again (it’s happened a few times), I might be forced to heckle them. Doofuses.
Slate even went to our old buddy Ron D Moore for a take on writing a finale that fans hate. OUCH. Savage, Slate!

Dany and Jon
And while I think THAT last scene with Dany and Jon was poignant and probably the best of the episode, they were both done SO dirty by this show that it didn’t matter, sadly.
Plus, did Jon give himself up after killing Dany? Why would he have been captured it was the perfect crime! Jon: “I don’t know Greyworm, Drogon just came in and lit fire to the whole place and they were gone. Not sure where they went? Ok, headed back to the north… see ya at the next fight for the end of the world!”
Jon Snow: convinced by a prisoner to kill his gf in a perfect crime leaving no evidence but then apparently tells on himself.

Jason Mamoa watching the finale is all of us:

“Who gives a fuck?” indeed.
Jaime / Cersei / Brienne
Everything about this drives me mad still. Days (and a week later). This was bad storytelling at it’s core. You spent seven seasons building up the redemption of Jaime (along with his budding love/respect for Brienne) and the downfall of Cersei and they crushed it (literally) under a building, in what is now the lamest and most wasted death of two major characters. I am righteously angry about this one and will probably not stop being until I read how George ends this whole thing.

I did love the Mean Girls memes of Brienne writing in the book of knights tho!

Honorable mention for bringing Edmure Tully back in all his average white man greatness!

Why did these moments even happen?!?! Click on the below and read it allllll.
This is a nice thread for Game of Thrones called “What was the fucking point?”

And to sum it up… here’s where it all went wrong in video form (worth the watch)
Essentially once D&D ran out of actual plot and story from George, they started fumbling the ball. HARD.
At least we got Gwendoline Christie out of this whole thing:
Still the best thing to come out of 8 seasons of Game Of Thrones pic.twitter.com/tvQekOXSrF

Have you recovered, or are you still waking up every morning, sad and bereft over the ending to arguably the best show to grace our television screens.
