    Oh I know these are shamelessly stolen from Reddit but they're good uns.

    I googled favourite to win the game of thrones out of interest earlier, I didn’t think it would be that much of a spoiler but it doesn’t take a genius to work out the ending looking at the results.

    They were all guarding the far side of the Nathan Mysterious Schoolmarm.

    Season 2: Dany walks into a throne room filled with Snow. Before she can sit on the throne, is distracted by Drogo and her child and says to them “Maybe I am dead and just don’t know it yet.”


    What the hell now?!! Is that not the end?!!

    I really, really wanted this to land on its feet but this is disappointing.

    Disappointing plot so far. Not impressed.

    What a load of ****e

    I've defended this Season up until now, but seriously.........this is a pile of absolute [email protected]

  • Registered Users Posts: 10,961 ✭✭✭✭ alchemist33

    A committee? Not the ending I was really looking forward to.

    And nobody took minutes so Bran isn't really legitimate

  • Registered Users Posts: 26,577 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Turtwig

    At the very end of all of this the last shot better be of Bran on the throne - and his eyes glow blue momentarily. Then smirks like the Night King did in episode 3.

    I don’t know how to feel right now

  • Registered Users Posts: 9,061 ✭✭✭ leggo

    I’ll definitely need to sleep on that Bran bit...

  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,452 ✭✭✭ Twenty Grand

    Sansa had to a point.

    So Tyrion walks in, a prisoner, filthy and disheveled, upturns a millennia of tradition, picks Bran, and everyone just says "yeah, sure why not.."

    You'd think Robyn would have a say, or whoever's running Dorne now.

    Edit: if there's still a nights watch, what the hell is Sam doing there? He can't hold any title.

    Also, why is the nights watch still there? The wildlings got annihilated by the WW, who are gone themselves. Who are they guarding against?

    Pretty empty. That's how I feel. Favourite TV show ever and this is the follow through fart of an ending it gets.

  • Registered Users Posts: 10,961 ✭✭✭✭ alchemist33

    Bran isn't even Bran anymore. They voted to let a mythical crow rule over them. This doesn't seem like a great idea

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,250 ✭✭✭ metaoblivia

    I actually do like Bran on the throne in the end, but I feel like this season was so rushed that it didn't bring us there in a way that felt authentic. My problem with this season hasn't been what's happened so much as not having had the space for these plot points to develop organically. It feels like a lot was skipped over so that by the end of it we're going, "Okay...???"

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,156 ✭✭✭ mrkiscool2

    That was....mostly awful. I am actually disgusted. I have to be up in less than 4 hours but I said "It's gotta be a good end". It's not even bitter sweet, it's just bitter.

  • Registered Users Posts: 7,693 ✭✭✭ corny

    I feel dirty after watching that. Filth.

    Load of bo**ocks that was, and i've defended this season to anyone who's asked about it.

    Didn't need a Disney ending but that was utter drivel.
