Four days have passed and the dust (ash? Snow? At one point during that episode even the show seemed to be unsure of what it was) has now begun to settle in earnest.
That damn show.
While it’s not all fully over until the abominable force of nature that is Lord Castleton puts out the final iteration of the tectonic movements that are his deep dives, the time for retrospection and reflection has arrived. Seth wrote a lovely ode to what Game Of Thrones, at its height, managed to achieve. The other writers here are working on a number of differently pitched postmortems that you should all be looking forward to. Me, I’m really pushed for time right now, and I’m in a salty mood after that soggy piss towel of an ending, so here’s my retrospective. Just the most hyped up comments from below the Season 8 trailer. Because there’s nothing funnier than bright hopes getting Qyburned down some stairs, blood pooling as the Red Keep topples around them.
Well at least this one remained accurate. But I mean how could it not? It’s Ramin.
Meanwhile, there were also some pretty funny and/or off-mark comments from the post for the trailer here, as well as some very spot-on comments (although, despite 338 comments, there is not one single mention of Bran).
Fail Better is on the ball.
This one is both right AND wrong.
So, did you walk away satisfied?
Honestly, it would’ve been a better ending.
Alright but seriously now. What the fuck else is there that I can watch? Suggestions open.
