TUH : Game of Thrones Series Finale
Okay, life has been biting me in the asshole for the last six months but a bitch had to peak her head in the room and chime in on the Game of Thrones finale. I’m going to keep this short and sweet. Look, I’m not going to sit here and act like I’ve been a fan since day one as I started watching right as season 3 or 4 began. From the first scene of season one episode one, I was hooked! Bitch, zombies AND swords?! Oh, I’m there. Over the years, I’ve grown to love and know these characters as if they were real people. I cared about what happened and didn’t happen to them so when it was announced back in 2017 that the final season was to air in two years, I prayed the Lord allowed me to live long enough to witness the mastery that was GoT. Now I feel like my prayers were in vein and that maybe the Lord of Light should’ve taken me to glory because what the fuck?!
Now, we can’t deny that the cinematography was fan-fucking-tactic. Frankly, I need a few of those stills hung on my wall but the writing, I’m just...The writing was rushed. There were also moments unbecoming of our beloved characters (I will never forgive D&D for having my sis Brienne the Stallion crying outside in the freezing cold in her housecoat over a sister-fucking one-handed fuck). But the way the series ended was the anticlimactic shit I completely expected but didn’t want to happen. I tend not to like being dragged along for tragic rides only for them to be wrapped up in pretty bows and shiny paper.
Okay, so I get it, all the Stark kids are living and thriving but to make Emo Bran the king made me roll my eyes. I appreciated Sansa being queen of the north, Jon becoming king beyond the wall (and finally showing Ghost the fucking love and respect, he deserved), and Arya going off on an adventure but Bran? No. D&D were better off reading all the fan theories and creating a final season from the people’s thoughts opposed to scrambling to write a happy ending.
Maybe I’ll feel differently once the dust has settled and I let this season sit with me for spell. But my initial reaction is “Tuh”.
