So you think he'll change the story?

The story already diverged a long time ago. I don't know what y'all been reading.

No one is saying otherwise dude.

who the fuck said anything about the stories not diverging?

my brain hurts today.

I haven't made any claims. You are in the camp who think they already know the ending, I am not.

Surprised when GRRM throws you a major curveball in the plot, as he is prone to doing.


Tired of your hostile dogshit and being the one blamed like I'm arguing all over the forum.

You need to chill out, man. Maybe you're confusing me for someone else? I barely interact with you aside from this thread, not sure where you are getting arguing with me all over the forum from.

GRRM flat out told D&D Bran will be king. Yes the book and show are different. Yes, I still expect Bran to be king at the end of the books. I'm far more excited in seeing it done in the books. The shows final season felt like a giant advertisement for Winds and Dream.

GRRM could have easily told them to do one thing for the show and have something else in mind for the books. It's not like the books and the show haven't been going in different directions for entire seasons now.

If Georgie boy said that Bran will be king, that's probably just how it's going to be. Then again, it was also from his original plan, so it could change in the future. Not impossible.

Either way it wouldn't be done in a ham-fisted way with the stupid little round table. Maybe I am alone in this, but how they get there is more important than who gets there. I don't think I am though, based on the negative reception of this season.

TFW when you realize GRRM's main issue for the past 19 years is trying to figure out how the fuck to make Bran king without it seeming stupid.

You can literally see the corners cut and fuckery. I'm sorry, but the books and show will not have the same ending. You're not going to convince me all the characters gang up in Winterfell, defeat the Others, nobody of consequence dies, and then they march to KL to win the game of thrones. fuckouttahere.

A lot of you are completely taking for granted that the books will end up exactly where the show ended up, and I think you will be in for a surprise pikachu.

A lot of you taking for granted that GRRM is gonna write another book.

Were people surprised about the shitty ending?

At Season 6 now and well the begining is awful. People just straight up killing important political people with little on screen planning or smart maneuvering and consequence. It's not surprising, what happen in Season 8. It seems pretty clear in season 6 the writers just resort to shocking moments and haven't thought about how any of this should effect the world the story takes place in.

Not going into details or anything but they really did destroy this entire franchise with the last season.
After it was finished, within a day or two there was nothing 'Game of Thrones' left.
No new merchandise, no Blu-Ray 4K collection box, no nothing.

Some web game with lots of ads that slowly withered.

It really is amazing how that season killed the whole franchise. I can't help but cringe every time HBO announces a new spin off series. I'm like, "who the fuck is going to watch that shit?"

I can really see HBO taking a massive financial hit with their "all in" investment.

I dunno I still enjoyed it even if there were a few big missteps.

I didnt mind Arya killing the Night King but it would have been cooler if John had done that.

Maybe the NK could have won lmao that would have been cool af too

The last season killed the show, but tbh, it was really downhill long before then.
I think S4 was the last good one, after that you had the occasional good moments (almost all being CGi or big battle related) but a general shit show of story and character development.
S8 was just the culmination of that garbage.

I always felt like the big problem with GoT was that they killed off most of the good actors like Charles Dance within 3 seasons.
So they were left with the wooden plank Emillia Clarke, Kit Harrington doing a LOTR larp, Peter Dinklage phoning it and a bunch of useless extra's. All they could do to make it interesting was throw them into big battles with dragons.
To make matters worse most of the young actors were so busy with GoT promotions that they couldn't do anything else to improve their acting skills or build experience between the seasons.

Some questionable actors in the lead were a problem, but let's be honest, the writing (both general plotting as well as character development and dialog) went downhill fast once they ran out of book material.

Characters like Tyrion but also the Eunuch i forgot the name of, went from charming and cunning, to dumb idiots with sassy one liners.
By that point, having impressive CGi dragon battles had become the selling point.

It probably has 'fans' that catched on later and enjoyed it because of the fantasy action.

GoT Season 1 is just an entirely different show than the final season.
Almost the complete reverse actually. They didn't even show battles in the earlier seasons.

Not opposed to a GoT sequel series. But a Jon Snow show  ???

At the height of the bargaining phase following the finale, there was some interest in an Arya Trek Voyager show. Jon is a dead end. Unless… somehow, the Night King has returned.
