Warning: Full spoilers follow for Game of Thrones’ series finale, “The Iron Throne.”
Even if we may have been anticipating Daenerys’ inevitable downfall, Game of Thrones’ path forward hasn’t exactly been paved with the most nuanced trajectory, and fans have noticed. Dany may have made a few missteps of judgment in her time, but it certainly still felt like 0 to 100 (read: genocide) in Game of Thrones’ penultimate episode. And now that the show has had its final chance for a wrap-up, many fans have come away feeling dissatisfied. I mean, Bran, really? Let’s take a look at what folks are saying!
“The storytelling just didn’t hold up at the end at all,” IGN reader tariq319 said. “I’m okay with how the story ended, but the way it was being told just left me completely disappointed.” Reader HillAustinD sees the silver lining of it all: “I feel like after last week’s travesty, this was as good as we could have hoped for.”
