Why do I feel like Got wouldve been cancelled by everyone after the Red Wedding if it wasnt for the fact the books were already written and offered a followup? People are so sensitive becazse things happened that didnt go their way. Like chill, its just a series.

So I was just thinking about the missandre thing. Why did dany wait til she get killed by cersei before attacking kings landing? She could have just burned the city down before missandre was executed and possibly save her. It just shows how the writers twist everything to fit their own narrative

But she did try to infiltrate the city. Remember her dragon was killed and Missandre was captured :psyduck:

As for if she intended to burn the city at that time, I don't think so. Missandre being killed was kind of the catalyst for that.

Ya but she was waiting outside the gates when missandre was executed. She could have been on her dragon burning the city.

They had the big arrows pointing directly at her dragon though. Even if she did get the dragon to burn them he would probably kill Missandre since she's so close to Cersei.

Nobody is mad because things "didn't go their way" - they're mad because the writing is bad, rushed and inconsistent, and they are thrasing seasons of character development just for the sake of shock value. We literally said this hundreds of times. Is this concept too hard to digest?

some points were made 

AHHHHH the GP are coming to their senses. We’re finally accepting Dany for who she is. Over-dramatic haters keep losing. Maybe the show isn’t RuiNeD after all

Red Wedding was shocking but plausible - actually a lot. We know main characters were untouchable in every other TV shows, but this wasn't the case with GOT back then (Jon Snow should have remained dead as well).

 

Now they're destroying characters to the point they're unrecognizable (someone who never watched GOT would have thought Daenerys and her troop were the 'bad guys', while Cersei and Jaime were the 'good ones' :rip:). Yeah, people change and they're complex (not entirely "good" or "bad") but the way they're doing it it's rushed, incompetent and doesn't make sense.

 

There's also this machismo side of it who's telling us Daenerys went mad because Jon Snow didn't want her back ("let it be fear"). Basically the resentful woman story we always hear, and the male heroes with values (Jon and Tyrion) + jealous/envious woman (Sansa) who can distinguish crazy women.

Lmfao It’s been years since I’ve been on here but I thought I’d come on and see what the girls were thinking about these atrocious crimes. 

Yall I am so ANGRY!!! Like I will never get over this SHITE!!! anyone saying people are mad because things didn’t go their way or we expected a happy ending need to stfu. Literally nobody watching got/read the books expected a fairytale ending. But we did expect consistency and good writing. Yeah we know the show has been shocking but most of those things made SENSE!! Ned dying made sense, red wedding made sense, because the characters choices led them to that point. We were mad and sad but we understood. But this?? BS!! What has Jon Snow done all season or even last season? His character has completely been watered down to “she’s my queen” “I don’t want it” The night king was his story arc and they gave it to Arya because it had to be shocking lmfaooo ok. Jaime?? Wtf 8 seasons of character development gone. Bran?? Taking a nap during the Battle lol like Hodor, summer and jorjen died for nothing smh. Now Dany omg we all know she can be ruthless but she has never hurt innocent people before. It literally made no sense for her to burn the whole city when she had won. D&D said she snapped because she saw the red keep, and it reminded her of everything that was taken from her, but she let Jaime live WHEN HE WAS THE ONE TO KILL HER FATHER. Make it make sense. She saved Jon TWICE during the stupid Battle of Winterfell AFTER she found out he had a claim to throne and that was 2 episodes ago (oh she also sacrificed everything to save the living but now she’s killing them okay) but you want me to believe she’s suddenly so power hungry that she’d kill thousands of innocent people. And the biggest dud of it all is Cersei dying from DEBRIS! Oh god what type of crack was Dumb & Dumber smoking when they wrote this garbage?

Its just funny to me that most of ur complaints can be countered.

Just like Jon Arya has prepared her entire life for a final strike like that.

Jamie being dependent in Cersei is not out of character. I agree with the fact it could ve been told better, maybe him concerning he didnt feel anything while sleeping witj Brienne, but Cersei and Jamie always had tjis sick bond.

Bran was there to move forward the reveal of jons true identity.

Comparing the Jamie Situation with the walkers right around their gate with her completely snapping after having lost her closest people is also bs.

 

With so little episodes and the overhype GoT had it was bound to displease people. But the overreacrion is a bit too much imho.

you didn't counter any complaints, sis, you just took the "excuse for every bad writing decision" bait D&D tried to use  :rip:

interesting read

 

 

MANY points were made:

 

Quote

Organic developments gave way to contrivance. Naturally-paced character arcs were rushed. Living plants became puppets of the plot. The characters just weren’t in charge anymore. The ending was. /22

Quote

The audience fell in love with one kind of show, but the ending is being imported from a different kind of show. Now, I happen to think the finale will stick the landing. It’s what the showrunners have been building toward these past two seasons, after all. /26

Quote

 

But to be satisfying, it matters how we get there, too. Treating the journey as equally important is how you get endings that feel earned. And it’s how characters keep feeling real the whole way through, even though they’re completing arcs some writer has chosen for them. /27

 

By placing so much emphasis on the ending, the showrunners changed the nature of the story they were telling, meaning the original story and the original characters aren’t the ones getting an ending. Their substitutes are. /28

 

That’s why no amount of spectacle or fan service can make this ending as satisfying as it should be. Resolutions invite us to consider the story as a whole; where it all started, where it all ended up. And we can feel the discontinuity in this one. /29

I dont know, to me the only true criticism lies in the fact it was rushed due to the Lack of Episodes. The plot points themselves do fit imho.

People have been bending backwards trying to defend this mess lol even D&D we’re struggling to come up with good reasons to explain why these characters completely changed from the end of S7 to now
