Those are insightful speculations, Born. I sure don't want Tyrion to die, but he will be a target.

Phew. Just seen last night's final episode.

Well....was it rushed? Yes. I didnt like the great gap of time between the key moment and the big meeting. It was like they had run out of money. That aside, it was still very good. Kind of annoying what happened with Jon but it was just about satisfactory/acceptable.

Kinda sad when you get to the end of something that has been soooo good for soooo long - i felt like this at the end of Sopranos. There is a great sense you want it to go on - there is so much shit on tv, when something great ends you miss it.

Glad yr back joanie.

Decent wrap-up episode, but nowhere the high level of last week's, of course.

Could Dany be alive, you think?

Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, Acceptance. You're at the "Bargaining" stage. You skipped Anger, but you don't seem to be the angry type. big grin

None of Jackals major predictions came true proving once agai. how unique and unpredictable this amazing show.

Question:
Did anyone know beforehand that Jon was in fact being sent to live with the Wildings?
Like Bran assuming the throne I.never saw that one.coming.

I felt truly sad when Danny was killed. She had achieved her goal and - in her deluded-mind- truly believed in her cause. She was so happy about the prospect of ' breaking the wheel' and ruling with Jon at her side.Btw I pointed out earlier that.her conversation about this was the key to the series denouement!
Also, I never thought Jon would kill her. Remember when he failed to kill Bridgette?
Great performances all around but Dinklage was truly outstanding.

A low-key but satisfying enough ending.

I enjoyed the Double Indemnity moment with Jon and Daenerys.

In all, a much more just end for most involved than I'd expected.


...and, admit it, you didn't really think this was the end for all these characters as television "stars", did you?

Some amazing imagery.
That shot of Danny walking towards the camera with dragon wings was breathtaking!
That whole scene , in the greyness was astonishing. A feeling of impending doom. One really felt that the show was.going.to end up really depressing. Appropriately, after her demise the sun came out.

Here are my first thoughts which may change over time.

I look forward to all of BornOfAJackel’s insights.

The finale was a hit for me in places and a miss for me in other places. It certainly seemed rather calm compared to episode 5.

Effective parts.

I wonder if the writers were making come kind of commentary about wars, Nationalism and maybe a bit of Fascism during the opening. The setting when Tyrion and Jon walked around and during Dany’s speech looked like a Nuclear Winter setting. When she took the stage, the background and her black leather outfit looked very militaristic; moreover, her rather charismatic and Nationalistic speech really reminded me and my husband of Hitler’s rousing, support-the-mother-country speeches which garnered tremendous support from his military and citizens. I don’t think I am reading too much into the setting and her speech. I think the writers had such ideas in mind. (Remember she even said she would “free” (cleanse?) Winterfell.)

It was kind of a wow moment to see the dragon nudge her body and carry her off as well as melting the Iron throne. Glad he didn’t immolate Jon Snow. I kept thinking Jon would be king, and the dragon would return to him. Wrong.

The music was very effective in places.

I really liked the editing near the end as the narrative kept jumping back and forth between Jon, Sansa and Alya’s separate journeys.


Glad Tyrion didn’t die.

Not thrilled about a few things. Bran as King? Yes, Tyrion did make a case for Bran the keeper of stories, but I didn’t see much “humbleness” from Bran. (And the actor has the personality and acting skills of an amoebae.) Bran saw the past, but his comment about why he came on this journey seems to indicate that he can see into the future and saw his kingship. Why the Night King wanted Bran is still unclear as he didn’t do much in my opinion. He didn’t seem to pose a threat. The good aspect was that he won’t have children, so kings and queens won’t succeed via DNA. Add this to Winterfell separating from the seven kingdoms, and we see the genesis of some kind of democracy slowly emerging. Tyrion doesn’t seem happy about being chief advisor, but he is alive.

I do get why Bran sent Jon away, but it seems just too harsh. Don’t marry, don’t have children, etc. Tyrion supporting Bran seemed too abrupt when he had previously seemed to know Jon Snow would be a good king.

Also, I kept waiting for Arya’s assassination skills to be utilized in the finale.

I have a question about the final scene. Jon returns to Castle Black, but it looks like he doesn’t stay to guard this place. (Night King is dead, so why do they even need this place?) Jon doesn’t stay. He leaves with the Wildings. Why? Is that a form of rebellion on his part? (His first rebellion of killing Dany.) His Wilding friend said he should join them and belonged in the North, but I’m not sure why he did this. I think he was punished too much for saving so many.

Joan,

Your comments about Fascism and " nuclear winter" are spot on. I believe the writers did this intentionally just as I believe the firebombing of Dresden was in their minds when conceiving the dragon attack.

Castle Black is no more. I think Jon believed he was going there as he did years before; to serve as a guard.
He was surprised to find Form and greet him. I'm still not sure if this was the plan all along . A ruse to pacify the Unsullied?
Brm

To those fans who think Danny's turn wasn't true to character, you wernt paying attention.

Remember, in the real world people like Alexander the Great also thought themselves liberators. Too some ectan2 they were. But, they became clouded by lust for power and couldn't stop. That's why Alecab3 was poisoned by his own friends. They'd had enough of war.
Danny was going to follow the same disastrous path. She probably didn't plan to go that route when she freed the slaves - her motivation was certainly partly altruistic. But she made it very clear to Jon what she intended to do. Had she shown even the slightest intentions to do otherwise, Jon would have given her a chance to prove her rule was. earned

Listening to everyone whining about the finale on EW.
What a.bunch of crap they are spewing.Most of them seem to think that the whole point of the show was to see who would ' win' he game. In other words this great work of art was really just a sports event where we root for the home team!???? It is clear to me that these ' fans' were predisposed to be disappointed. Incredibly, some are even claiming that it obliterated all the seasons that went before. One ' bad episode makes all that came before worthless??
Pathetic!
