For Sansa and Bran to come out as the two most powerful people in this show is just appalling.

How does the North just Opt out? And if I was everyone else I would do the same.

Arya climbs on a boat heading West were no one has gone before, and her boat peps are like "cool"

Jon's siblings are too stupid to vote Jon in knowing what and who he is.

Castle black is for what? I mean sure keep the castle but what are you protecting things from, the Wildlings your new allies?

And someone repaired the wall?

What a lazy lazy ending by the show runners... and now we have a choir singing something unintelligble b/c it adds drama?

What a poor poor season. I guess i am glad it ended in 6 episodes so we woud not have to drag out such a horrible bit of writing.

Hope Martin is smarter than that.

So I take it that Jon is joining the wildlings?
Nah, probably just escorting back home. He isn't one to derelict his duty to the NW

He gone.

Loved it. The reverse engineering to get to this point wasn't great and had some missteps but I liked that ending. Sad to see the show end.

Why is Jon going back to Castle Black? The zombies are dead.

That part of the wall isn't where they broke through.

If you're going to give us gratuitous Tormund, at least have him ask about Brienne.


They finally figured out we don't need to hear the same joke told for the 19th time. Or at least many of us don't.

I will watch that for 10 seasons.

How we didn't get some quip from Tormund absolutely infuriates me, though.

I'm shocked how terrible this last season was.

Bran?! So friggin dumb. Jon was an all time great tv character, undone in this last season.

I don't find this comparison accurate at all. For the Allies to invade Japan, it was going to cost an estimated 6-14 million Allied and Japanese lives.
To drop the atomic bombs, it was going to cost 220,000 civilian lives.
That's the math Truman used to justify his decision.

The atomic bombs were used to force Japan's ruling class to surrender while saving American and allied troop lives.
Dany burned King's landing after they had essentially surrendered and actually cost more of her soldiers to die. She did it to quench her hate and blood lust.

The author of that article failed miserably with their comparison.
Well, conquering westeros the hard way had already cost her basically all her western allies, her whole fleet, most of her dothraki, most of her unsullied, all of her friends, and 2 of her dragons, and she was facing untold armies of spies, assassins, undefeated armies, undeterred lords, unafraid citizens, etc. she was going to have to face all that without the resources to do it.

The analogy is exact. Dead on. 100%. And frankly i bet the author would tell you that if you asked him.


It's not dead on.
This would be like Tokyo surrendering to the Allies and then the allies dropping atomic bombs.

He just had his heart broken by the big woman, so I don't have a problem with him not asking about Brienne. However, some comment about Jon coming North would have been warranted.

Wow..... very very interesting.

Jon's sentence wasn't a sentence at all - I kept thinking why would there be a Castle Black and a Wall any more. I think they just pulled one over on the Unsullied and let him go north with his buddy Tormund.

The Bran part - well a little weird but I always though this show was about underdogs - I thought at one time Jon, Dany and Tyrion would be the ones to rule in some way. that obviously wasn't going to happen..... so of course it's Bran. I half expected Gendry though too.

LOVE the Ghost moment - might be my favorite part.

Arya, Sansa both just kind of weird but that's almost expected at this point.

The last small council was......kind of lame. Too comical. F-ing Bronn....really.

Jon errr Aegon finally did the right thing. Damn that was a long time coming really.

But in the end no wheel was broken - just one spoke was removed (the North). And they will supposedly be more diplomatic about selecting a ruler. Yeah that wouldn't last. So..... kind of just full circle and the wheel keeps spinning. Like Tyrion said.... ask me in 10 years.

119th time, maybe. And they didn't really seem to get much else right, so...

No one actually believed there were zombies before, it was just a place to send "undesirables".

of course no wheel was broken. Man will continue to desire power. The game will play on but for now there is some peace.

I'm actually very satisfied with the ending.

Bran's arc finally has a purpose.

Sansa ruling the North.

Arya going west. (Knew she would end the series this way, perfect for her character.)

Sam the archmaester.

Jon back in the North, adventuring with Tormund and Ghost.

Tyrion doing the job he loves and is best at.

Davos alive and well.

Jaime's deeds finally filled in.

Honestly can't complain about much. D&D deserve props for this episode.
