      Well Dumb&Dumber have a Star Wars trilogy and a big Netflix contract coming up... Even after this lazy burning garbage pile they turned Game of Thrones into. How is anybody going to hire them to make more movies, after they see how bad they ruined GOT as soon as they ran out of source material? Well Star Wars is already dead, (Disney murdered it) so I don't really see what else they can do to it.

    Everytime I hear "Everywhere she goes, evil men die, and we cheer her on" I can't help but think… duh?? Was she supposed to let them go in the name of… I dunno… honor? Mercy that would not only be undeserved, but cruel to those they tormented? Of course you cheered for her. Just as they cheered when Hitler died. Just as they cheered when Nazis were put on trial and executed for their genocidal crimes. Just as they cheered when bin Laden was killed. Because terrible people must be stopped and this show established that execution is an expected punishment. Keep cheering for the evil people dying. That's how this show goes.

    I liked Cersei's death. Everything else she did was dumb. But in her final moments, she can't even remember to lie. Her Tywin facade falls away and she reveals herself as a scared little girl. She never grew up.

    Thank fuck for your Dany analysis. It is pretty clear GRRM isn't going the Full Mad Queen route and it bothers me when people believe this. Yes there will be a lot of dark and damaging stuff in Dany's book arc but it feels unjustifiable that she would turn mass peasant murderer for NO reason. Also there is the fact that the Battle for King's Landing is not going to be the end of Dany's story. Whatever happens with Dany and King's Landing, she will have the chance for redemption and self sacrifice with the battle against the Others.

    Here’s an idea I’m sure someone else thought of but I’ll say it anyway. If it was foreshadowed that Danny would do horrible things for what she thought were just reasons, then why not have her torch king’s landing BEFORE they go to winterfell to fight the ice zombies? She’d do it because let’s say most of her army had gone ahead to the north when she found out Cersei’s betrayal. Maybe only Danny could fast travel fast enough there and back. And when the city refuses to surrender, Danny decides to get rid of a threat before it becomes one.
    And to add insult to injury let it be John Snow that witnesses this mass act of violence, because then he’ll be put in the same situation as before. Being one of the only people that knows how big the threat is, and no one else believing him at first because it sounds so unbelievable. That is, until they make it back to King’s landing.
    That’s my suggestion anyway.

      Hrmmm, I think that might work - but we still don't have enough dots joined between "extremist hero" and "extremist villain." We need more of a buildup. What if the mission isn't to kill Cersei, but to capture her for a trial? Dany wants to impress the north and prove her worth by bringing them her hated enemy - oblivious to the fact that her pride and zeal is being used to lure her into a trap. Then we have the death of Rhaegal. He gets killed by a fluke hit from close to the Red Keep and Dany is immediately enraged: she goes straight after Cersei and attacks the Red Keep, partially crushing her under rubble as she tries to escape... only to discover at the last minute that it's not Cersei at all, but one of her handmaidens used as a decoy. Beside herself with rage, she scours the city for Cersei, eventually using more dragonfire to flush her out of a building that looks like a safehouse - only to discover too late that it's actually a stockpile of Wildfire. Soon, King's Landing is in flames as the fire spreads and caches of Wildfire ignite, all set by Cersei as a final "fuck you" to her rival. It's then that, as she's reeling from the shock, Dany finally sees Cersei's ship fleeing across the horizon, and she's faced with a difficult decision: use Drogon and her fire immunity to save as many people as she can and make amends for her terrible mistake, or kill Cersei. In the end, Dany is so angry and humiliated and horrified at what she's been tricked into doing, she finally allows her hate to consume her. She pursues Cersei and murders her in cold blood - not *just* incinerating her, but *holding her down and allowing Drogon to bathe them both in dragonfire so she can watch up close as the pretender queen burns alive* . When Jon finally asks why she did it, Dany can't bring herself to admit that she was tricked or that she made a mistake; she only says that it was necessary. And that is the final nail in the coffin of Daenerys, the Breaker of Chains. The woman who flies back to fight the White Walkers is the Heartless Queen, she who will burn her own to stop the enemy.

    My favorite ones are Daenerys, Varys, Tyrion and Jon. Varys especially, it's hilarious that he wanted Jon on the throne, he has no reason to think Jon would make a good King. He doesn't know his leading experiences, he had no reason to trust or like Jon. Also he has no way to prove that Jon is "Aegon Targaryen". How do you prove it by saying "Bran said so". I know their marriage is recorded, but it only proves Rhaegar and Lyanna got married it doesn't prove they had a kid. Hell even Daenerys doesn't have a reason to believe Jon was threat to her claim because she hasn't been shown any physical proof.

    "Telling the audience the thing makes sense with your dialogue, while not supporting the thing with the character's actions, is kind of a trend in the final seasons of GoT." So well put, and frustratingly true!

    I agree with almost all of this video except where you cut to Jean in The Last Stand. The difference is she wanted to be killed, to save the people she loved, she'd already hurt so many of them. She knew that if she grew any more powerful, she would lose control and hurt the people she loved. Dany was "betrayed" because the writers are awful and have zero understanding of how motivations work (ironically the writers wrote for that Xmen wolverine movie set in Japan which is also a terrible movie but at least the characters have some motivations). The Last Stand is still better than the last two seasons of this show.

    Late as hell but the thing that always makes me laugh/cry at the whole "They were evil men she killed, so we cheered, really we made her a Draco-Nazi" is Tyrion of all people missing the irony of encouraging violence against a person who uses violence (because she uses violence against people who use violence) and Jon "Jesus let the Wildlings in they're violent but they aren't literal zombies" Snow just accepting it.

    Why would Daenrys be triggered by the Red Keep when she was just a babe when her family was killed? There's no way the Red Keep would have triggered bad memories from a child so young. It would make sense if Daenrys had been older and saw the slaughter of her family.

    "The enjoyment of experiencing a story should not be ruined by knowing how it ends." This is why writers and creators need to stop caring about people guessing the plot twists and the endings to their stories. Sometimes knowing or figuring out where the story is going helps make the suspense of the journey to get there even more alluring than why they started engaging with your story in the first place.

    It would have been a better story had Jamie trapped Cersei when he had actually seen a way out, knowing if she were unleashed again into the world, she'd continue to be the monster she had become, even now to her children. Cersei to me had always been the big bad. His last words were to Brienne so he would continue to be dishonourable as the Kingslayer and Queenslayer, so no one would ever know he did in his sister, but Brienne eventually saw through him and "re-wrote" his ending.
    Dany's words didn't match her actions indeed. I'm still not over her and 54:23 THANK YOU!

    Aside from how Sansa explains that what happened to her made her grow (are you serious, D&D?) it also really pissed me off that the Hound claimed she could have prevented it by leaving with him ... not only is that brutally insensitive and out of character/normal sense, but also complete bs. He got away with having Arya as a hostage because she was harder to recognize and, more importantly, not of as much interest to the Lannisters as Sansa. I'm pretty sure they would have been recaptured, either by people working for Littlefinger or the Lannisters (if he didn't get fatally wounded in a fight beforehand and leave her defenseless on the road) ... latter would have probably led to her being punished harshly by Joffrey, perhaps even raped, and first would have ended in her marriage to Ramsay. This is one of the worst scenes in all of Game of Thrones - victim shaming at it's worst and the painfull story trope-bs that women who suffered sexual violence become stronger ... I can't handle this.
    Edit: had to correct, mixed her escape from King's Landing and the battle of Blackwater XDD

      @Dominic Bounds sadly ... plus this fits with how they portray Cersei in the end as "just a girl", going out crying after her army fell (without any backup/actual escape plan - ???????) ... I don't think anyone expected or asked for this version of her death. They also decided that Sansa gaining her powerfullness through putting her foot down politically and learning to play the game from the book just wasn't... doable for their show? Or, you know, actual gameplay only fun with other people?

      All the more aggravating considering that in the book, the Hound was drunk, menacing and not especially trustworthy in their final scene together. But of course, they have to sanitize *everyone* who isn't Sansa or Stannis, so of course, the Hound has to be a good guy in this scene and it's a sign of Sansa being "childish" that she doesn't go with the strange and untrustworthy prick who sold her out to Cersei two episodes ago. (sigh) It's moments like this that confirm my theory that Game of Thrones was a dysfunctional mess from the very beginning: the more they diverge from the books, the more you realize that the chocolate icecream of the series was hiding a *massive* shovelful of cowshit.

    When it comes to Dany's... problem, the writing had been on the wall for a while. There was a sizeable chunk of the audience who spent their time viewing the show going, 'So are we not going to talk about Dany's apathy towards the people her husband enslaved?
    'What about the random girl she had locked in a vault, presumably to starve to death?
    'What about when she captured Mereen and gave the order to crucify a bunch of nobles there, without bothering to find out - even going as far as to say she didn't care - which were innocent and which were guilty?
    'What about when she tore its economic model down without having even the faintest idea what she'd replace it with?
    'Remember how her actions reduced former slaves to a state of such desperation that they were willing to sell themselves back into slavery? Remember how Dany was okay with it as long as she got a cut? Remember that?'
    Look, I'm not a fan of GoT S8, but people who say Dany's' dark side came out of nowhere need to go back and watch the rest again.
    Also, in the real world, her troops would have needed time to rest. Sansa was under the delusion that the rules still applied, but Dany was all like, 'Nah, I had a word with D&D - they've made sure we get a pass on this one. Also, they've made the road a fuck of a lot shorter so it won't take us half a season to march south like it did in the first season.'

      @Jacob D Do you want me to fuck off or answer your questions? I can't do both. (ahem) So, I've just had four posts in which I've lambasted you for use of inapplicable evidence.... and somehow you're bringing us back to Dany again? I'm not defending anyone at this point: I'm attacking the pick-and-mix approach. I'm emotionally invested in an argument making sense. And given that I had to remind you of what happened in season 2 and *ask* what the hell you were talking about with this "taking a cut" claptrap, your argument was already on shaky ground - but then you decided to bring book information to justify a show argument, and the whole thing turned to nonsense. And then of course there's the fuck off/answer questions contradiction, but there you go...

      @Dominic Bounds No, a small part of my argument has been based partially on information *you* say doesn't apply to the show. The rest, you decided to largely ignore. To be honest, Dominic, you can take your immaturity, your unwillingness (or, just as likely, your inability) to defend your own argument, your insistence on ignoring most of mine, and your weirdly vitriolic defence of a totally fictional character, and you can fuck off. I would like to know why you're so invested, though. Why is my opinion of such importance to you? Why are you willing to go to such lengths to defend her? Why do you seem to take my calling Dany a villain so personally? Why are you so emotionally invested? Why, Dominic?

      ​@Jacob D And your argument - from the very beginning - is based on information that doesn't apply to the show. You are trying to force it to be canonical information by means of the "it's just my opinion" excuse. I had enough of this nonsense from D&D's retroactive Stannis smear job, and I don't need it from people who actually watched the show. So, I ask again, *what is the point of having canon at all* if you need to import the details from other continuities in order to justify your point? You could have said "I knew Dany was up to no good when she summoned the Death Star to wipe Yunkai off the map" and it would have made just as much sense.

      In all fairness, the problems have been around for a long time. The adaptation has had its flaws: minor villains were given more focus than they should and major villains were sanitized too long to be considered effective; explanations for mysteries like the Warlocks' return, Shae's return/betrayal and Thorne's failure to appear in King's Landing were not forthcoming; intelligent decisions were subtracted from main characters, along with morally grey decisions; even scenes we liked - Tywin and Arya, Catelyn Stark's confession - showed a lack of understanding of the characters. Season 8 was just the logical conclusion of all those problems without any decent material to support it.

    Great video/essay. I agree with most everything (disagreeing about a few salient concepts/points, but those are more so matters of personal taste vs general analysis), but most especially your end conclusion about how the ending makes it so you'd never want to watch the series again. On the finale night, I literally said that to the friends I was watching it with -- this finale season was so "wrong" (and in the "bad" kind of "wrong", vs the "good wrong" that makes you feel bad/sad *but* makes you want to watch it again because it properly conveys truth/meaning vs. arbitrariness), I'd never feel compelled to ever watch so much as one episode ever again. It's roughly half a year later and the entire series is as flat/uninteresting to me as day-old toast... which is incredibly sad given how good so much of the series had been and how -- even if 2 or 3 major plot/writing disappointments had remained in the final season -- it could so easily have been a fantastic ending with just a little bit of common sense and proper, non-hack writing applied to it.
    So sad....

      Oh for god's sake, as if this series didn't have enough incest in it already without the Tsar and Tsarina of terrible writing adding *more* to it. I mean, it's bad enough that several confused people walked away from the season 6 ending believing that Ned Stark was screwing his sister, but now we're supposed to believe that Sansa wanted to jump Jon's bones as well - and is jealous of Dany for that reason? No wonder Jaime took so much longer to dump Cersei than he did in the books: knowing these showrunners, they were probably enshrining their relationship as a love affair on par with Romeo and Juliet.

      ​@The Busby Babes Yes and her issue was racism and sexism she's experienced in general and how the harassment lead to her internalizing it. She experienced this in the harassment. On a specific platform. She also happened to remove this platform. A logical person would look at that situation and go "hm... maybe it's the harassment that made her stop using this platform." Unless of course you can find me a post stating differently. Heck you can even copypaste the full context and highlight the things you think contradict this idea. But it's so fucking cowardly to try and make me out to be the bad guy here as though I was "smearing an entire fanbase" when I literally never said a thing about the fanbase in general. If you're seriously more concerned about the general image of the fanbase because I bring up how shitty SOME people's treatment was of actors in a movie, your priorities are all fucked up.

      @Crappy HR im not ;) im just saying that the real problem she had was not the abuse but society and to just focus on the two "trolls made her leave instagram" sentences of that page long statement is really disingenious. and not to mention that this is used as a way to smear an entire fanbase.

      @The Busby Babes I did and I'm still right. Stop being an apologist for a bunch of sexist and racist scumbags who harass an innocent woman for no reason.

    D&D can't write. Certainly not like GRRM. They're more Batwoman calibre.
    When they chose to have Sansa be married to Ramsey & be the rape victim, as opposed to the book where the Bolton's had a maid of hers & faked that she was Sansa to legitimise their claim, they wrecked the character. It was obvious GRRM was setting her up to go from a spoiled, spiteful, callow child to grow into Liz the 1st.
    After finishing watching this review, I think writing Batwoman would be a tad too aspirational for them.
    These guys need to stick to adaptations from people who can actually write.

    The only rational explanation i could come up with for Dany's sudden rage is that this time she decided she wouldn't let Cersei off the hook so easily again (by a fair trial etc). Like she took the surrender bells as something that would allow Cersei to get away with everything and thought the only way to destroy her would be to be as equally cruel as her. But as said, that's just my own half assed interpretation as there wasn't an actual one in the episode.

    It's so sad how they turned all these detailed character roles into one dimension Marvel action characters.

    Thanks for spelling out these illogicalities, esp. Dany's "progression" from Robin Hood to Hitler within not even an episode but actually just a few seconds "because bells" and Sansa now suddenly being a separatist that she wasn't throughout the rest of the show. Watching these kind of videos keeps my sanity, thanks.

    There's a clip of Kit Harington at the final episode's script reading just SOBBING when it reveals what Jon and Tyrion do to Daenerys, and Emilia Clarke just makes :| this face.
    Varys' actor (can't remember his name) is just shaking his head the whole way through.
    The actors are so clearly upset by the direction their characters have taken, these characters they've played for YEARS and it's honestly pretty upsetting to watch. I can't imagine being a writer and thinking that I made a good product when the reaction is SO strong from these people who know their characters this well.

    60:18 "First she came for the slavers, and I did not speak out because I was not a slaver. Then she came for the slave masters that crucified a bunch of slave children and I did not speak out. Then she killed a bunch of fucking innocent women and children, so really I'm the idiot, I guess. One two progression, should have seen that coming. It really makes you think."

    Funny thing is that I started watching the show and then I found it not really to my liking other, than the brilliant writing and some of the characters, like Bobby B, so I stopped at the end of season 2. Then I started watching it again from the beginning when S6 came out and I still didn't like it as much so I stopped again. Then I watched Youtube videos about it, mainly "The Fate of" series about specific characters and some story analysis ones and I really liked those so I started following the story of the last 2 seasons via Youtube videos only to see that it was like watching a dumpster fire and I still have more good "memories" of this show, than those who actually watched it episode by episode.

    @11:30 how is it that the GOT WRITERS don't know that it was the Mad King who burned Sansa's grandfather and uncle, NOT Daenerys

      This has happened before, sadly: back in season 5, D&D and other associated hacks remarked that Stannis was burning people alive during his first scene, claiming this was proof that he'd always been a fundamentalist monster.... ...except Stannis was burning the idols of The Seven during his first scene. As in "wooden statues," not people. At the time, I thought this was another way of smearing the character, as D&D have already gone on record as saying that they don't like Stannis, hence why his downfall is so suspicious - and also why Brienne spends the next season gloating about it like a psychopath and receiving no punishment for abandoning a rape victim for the sake of petty vengeance. Looking back, I realized that I'd discerned malice when I should have recognized incompetence: D&D are just too stupid to remember scenes *from their own damn show* .

    I love the descriptor "Her intelligence is just writer clairvoyance", because I see it so often, where a person isn't smart because of their own deductive abilities or perceptions, but because they just say a bunch of things that wind up being right. Because writers can't write characters smarter than they are

    came back when i heard about working on the show being an expensive film school for the showrunners, and i cant help but wonder if unseasoned people running a show is partly why it collapsed like it did.then again, moffat ran doctor who and sherlock so who knows. a lot of things contribute to a show ending like this
