Last chance to turn back if you haven’t watched Season 8, Episode 5 of Game of Thrones.
So—here’s the deal: the writers completely dropped the fucking ball this season. I know they only had six short episodes to jam pack years worth of answers into—but come on, you could have done better than this.
To recap, bluntly, Daenerys marched on King’s Landing and torch the entire city—including all of the innocent men, women, and children who had absolutely nothing to do with Cersei Lannister (many who actually hate her). The writers decided to, for some reason, turn Dany into the “mad queen” after years of her being the good guy. While all this is happening, Jaime is walking around with a golden hand searching for Cersei, throwing the entire character arc of his “becoming a better person” out the damn window of the Red Keep. Cersei and Jaime die in the basement by…being buried under rubble/rocks. Cleganebowl finally happens and both Claganes die, and, Arya rides off on a random horse appearing out of thin air—hopefully back to Winterfell to tell Sansa “damn, sis, bitch is crazy.”
Game of Thrones fans who have loyally watched the show for years—since 2011 to be exact—are furious with the way that the writers decided to completely fuck up a monumental and historic show. Seriously, they were really, really upset.
Dany for 7 seasons: Has never killed innocent people, stood up for them, freed slaves, people looked up to her.— Denizcan Stark (@MrFilmkritik) May 13, 2019
Dany in season 8: Hears bells of surrender and for some fucking stupid reason starts killing innocent people.#GameofThrones #DemThrones
I’m sorry but this season has been a fucking disgrace. 7 seasons of character development and D&D have absolutely ruined Daenerys and Jaime’s characters. I love this show, but this is just disgusting. #GameofThrones— GoT Things (@GoTthings_) May 13, 2019
The writers did all the women characters dirty.— Imani Gandy (@AngryBlackLady) May 13, 2019
The world’s greatest assassin was just wandering through the streets after the hound said, “I got this”? Really? Cersei killed Arya’s family! She would’ve gone with the damn hound and killed her on the stairs. #GameOfThrones
