Without any doubt, Season 8 was not what most loyal fans hoped for. It was in fact, the worst season of the entire series with some of the poorest reviews on major movie platforms. It was as though the stellar team got tired of their primary assignment which was to give unrivaled television experience. It wasn’t what we hoped for, but, it was all we got.
You Guys had one job. One freaking Job!!
I do not count myself in the wagon of those that felt disappointed in the final episode. Frankly, it was the save face episode after the disappointment of episode 5.
It couldn’t have ended any better way than with Brandon the Broken, first of his name and Lord of the six kingdoms seated on his wheel-throne (Seeing that Drogon let his pain get the better part of him to the detriment of the Iron Throne).
The gap between the most crucial unanswered questions was filled. Daenerys didn’t get a chance to become a full-blown tyrant but not before she showed us her murderous streak in King’s Landing. The Starks and the North eventually win with one as the Lord of the six kingdoms and Sansa, the Queen of the North.
After fulfilling Melisandre‘s prophecy of killing many blue eyes, there is certainly no place for Arya in either King’s Landing or the North as there are still more green and brown eyes to be killed. What’s better than exploring what’s West of Westeros?
Daenerys’ murder scene reminded me of the first time Tobi lashed out at CeeC in Big Brother Double Wahala…Epic
The argument that Jon would have made a better king also doesn’t hold much water for me. Tyrion Lannister called him what he truly is… The Protector of the Realm of Men. He was never really destined to be a king and in truth, he never wanted that responsibility.
It was poetic justice to have two of the most powerful female dictators die in the arms of the men they loved. In some creepy way, love was evident in their moment of death.
This episode earned itself its fair share of the online boos . From its props malfunction that had us witness a cup of Starbucks to the bottle of water behind Samwell‘s leg, then, of course, its singular anti-climatic scene that saw Cercei die a merciful death. What the production crew did? They took 8 years of freaking mind-blowing TV wonder and flushed it down a public toilet in Mushin.
No doubt, all good things come to an end. This was the end we were served with. It wasn’t the end we envisaged. We can swallow the hard pill or allow it to rest in good faith. We can at least take our minds to epic moments like this…
As we await the promised Spinoffs,Yours with Love, Mamazeus
