    That is the most retarded excuses I have ever heard for one of the dumbest scenes ever recorded.

    I'm honestly starting to wonder if GoT season 8 wasn't just a long expensive troll. This shit is so bad nobody could even make this up! And nobody did when speculating on the forums and blogs. Man we were better off thinking Drogon was mad at the throne lolol. Goddamn.

    This is even stupider than the implied explanation of him burning the Throne because of him making a political/emotional message.

    I think the trailer he was referring to was the con trailer that looks all horror-y and shit. Then they started amping up the camp with each following trailer.

    Holy fuck, this is actually real???
    EDIT: I just googled it...it's real. I really want to see how people who keep defending s8 can defend this script. D&D didn't even fucking try making a good script. They just wanted to end the show.

    Not for me, I'm still rewatching seasons 1-4 and they're f awesome. You just have to blank your mind and forget about S8...

    The term "lazy writing" gets thrown around all the time but man if this isn't a textbook example of lazy writing I don't know what is.

    They really botched the Iron Born and the Dornish compared to the books

    Tbf, the Dornish are pretty garbage in the books too. A Feast for Crows is a chore to get through.

    It's just disgustingly bad. I really don't get that there's people defending this season.

    I had kind of hoped that GRRM and the cast of the show would just publicly denounce this shitshow.

    So a guy who doesnt even watch the vids he posts is telling me how people in an audience hes never been a part of, at an event hes never attended are going to act? Really? Seriously?

    Just admit that on this one point. Just this one, that has nothing to do with quality of the season or the writing, that you're talking out of your ass. Just utterly and completely you have no idea what you're talking about.

    Like I said, SDCC is a completely different environment. Rian Johnson could walk out and get applause. Thats just the way it is. People dont wait in line for 6 hours to get into a panel and boo.

    Hey, what can I say?It's the internet, I can do whatever I want. I don't even have to be a human, for all you know I might be one of them aliens up in Area 51. I'm sticking to my story. They made a lazy, shitty product and fans would have definitely reacted with anger. We can argue over amounts but there would have been a negative feedback.

    Drogon burning the throne instead of Jon was one of the only good moments in S8. It backed up the whole dragons are intelligent thing. Drogon knew Dany wanted that throne and it got her killed, so he didnt hate the playa (Jon) he hated the game (the throne).

    Turns out it was just a tantrum.

    From the looks of this thread, we are gonna be talking about how fucking awful seasons 7 and 8 were.

    The writers are shit tier. Just like Both walking deads

    All they care about is checking off liberal boxes. ✅✅✅✅✅✅✅

    You didn't like Hotah or Darkstar?

    Dornish characters were a lot more interesting in the books.

    walking dead is a now a metaphor for the slow and agonizing death of the show quality. It will continue to die on everyone's TV screen for years to come.

    Hotah was great.
    They seriously made him and Doran total cans on the show.

    Too bad Jon just fessed up to something he didnt need to.

    No thought apparently to "Teh Dragon Carried her off!!"
