Hopefully BornOfAJackel will return to give us the real deal or the real insights into the finale.

I’ve read some interpretations on the Internet about various aspects of the finale. I have questioned Snow leaving Castle Black to go off with the Wildings. A few critics claimed that he was happiest when he was with them. Don’t know about that. He did have his lady love, but he betrayed them for Castle Black, lost his girlfriend, but later became friends with the Wildings.

Also, we do see that while he was an amazing warrior, he didn’t seem to like war, so some critics have said that by going North with the Wildings, he has achieved personal peace, and Castle Black really isn’t needed anymore.

Still wondering why the Night King wanted 3-eyed Bran and what Bran contributed to the last season other than Jon’s true identity.

It was the perfect ending. If you remember, the series started with a shot of that forest with the night walkers lurking in the shadows. Now the people has 're-conquered' the wintery forests, and will make it their own.

Jon gave his word he would go into exile at Night Watch. When he arrived there was no watch only Wildings. He went with them to honor his pledge to the Unsullied.

Btw anyone else notice the parallels between Stannis and Danny?

Both committed fratricide, dabbled in black magic and necromancy, burned foes alive if they bend the knee....sacrificed their children
And of course claimed the throne as their birthright.
But, nobody considers Stannis a HERO!

"Still wondering why the Night King wanted 3-eyed Bran and what Bran contributed to the last season other than Jon’s true identity."

This Joanie, exactly. Built up bran like he was kryptonite to the night king yet all he did was send a flock of crows to spy. I thought he was gonna take over a dragon...but nothing. Damp squib.
Having foresight he wudv made a good hand to jon's king but what we got was not the worst arrangement.

-Emilia Clarke said she watched Adolf Hitler speeches to inspire her for Daenerys Targaryen's victory speeches to her troops, "In giving all these speeches in fake languages, I watched a lot of videos of — now it seems funny — dictators and powerful leaders speaking a different language to see if I could understand what they were saying without knowing the language. And you can! You absolutely can understand what Hitler’s f—ing saying, these single-focus orators speaking a foreign language. So I thought, “If I can believe every single word I’m saying, the audience won’t need to be looking at the subtitles too much.

I feel that my comparing Dany to Hitler is now supported by Clarke's quotation.

Thor, you bring up a interesting point about the first shot in the series and the final scene. It wasn't a perfect ending for me, but I did highlight the aspects of the finale that I did like.

Bill, guess we have to wait for BornOfAJackel to satisfy our questions about Bran.

Fans who wanted Danny or Jon Gendry, or Sansa to rule are in essence saying " I believe in monarchy .i inherited power. .. Might makes right.That's a scary thought.
Bran was ELECTED as a one time King. A better climax than the continuing battles amongst Starks, Baratheon, Greyjoy and Targaryen ,Lannister,dynasties. At the end, Bran leaves the small Council to their tasks. He has no intention of being a dictator.

I think some.folks missed the part where it was answered the question " why was Jon sent away".

It was the price.the Unsullied demanded in exchange for peace. Remember the Unsullied were loyal to Danny who freed them. They wanted Jon executed. The followers of The Starks would have war if this.happened. . . Banishment was a compromise to prevent war.

I AM THE NEW Jackal!

Yeah, joanie i still cant see what the fuss was about. Ok he served as a distraction for arya to attack and subsequently caught the dragonstone blade to stab Night King but that contribution still doesnt explain why the night king wanted him dead so badly.
Hope you had a good time. Glad youre back, ive missed giving you stick and receiving it! smile

Awww shucks, thanks Bill. I told Edw to beat on you a lot while I was gone in order to keep you from missing me too much, but I think she was

Re: Season Eight, Episode Six "The Iron Throne"

Okay, so I'm supposed to wrap this all up with something profound, but...

Man, the Budget Fuck really got to this one, rendering it essentially a postscript, when the showrunners (I hate that term.), had they chosen to do so, could've done an entire succeeding season on how things wrapped up in King's Landing. Thus, we end up with a perfunctory and bland wrap-up that will allow the showrunners to get on with doing yet another Star Wars trilogy for The Disney Corporation, for much greater pay, no doubt.

Congratulations, Dave & Dan. You deserve this. But we all know you took your eye off the ball on numerous occasions on this show so you could get on to bigger projects. Well, good luck with Star Wars-maven Kathleen Kennedy, guys. I bet she'll force you to put in "girlpower moments", like all the other Star Wars and Marvel stooges who work for Disney.

More later...

"More later..."

Sorry if we put pressure on you, BornOfAJackal. We are just interested in your insights, so I will look forward to your more later comments.

(I didn't realize the writers were moving on to other endeavors.)

Re: rushed

The episodes were.90 minutes so is it really fair to complain about " only six episodes"?

Where all these Unsullied and Dothraki did come from?
They were quite decimated in the battle with white walkers.
