It doesn’t happen very often, but once in a Westeros winter a show comes along that is able to mix intelligence, heart, violence and wit in just the genuine proportions. Ferocious brilliance of HBO’s Game of Thrones, based on the first novel in George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series, is a revelation that we think has most viewers, including die-hard book fans, can get behind. A daring story, filled to the absolute brim with audience denigration, Game of Thrones made us all feel the miseries, ambitions and loves of its entire ensemble while giving us the great characters that we actually care enough to root for. Which, in this apathetic day and age, is unicorn rare. In this article, we will talk about ending of Game of Throne.

Game of thrones season 8

Honestly,, talking about “Game of Thrones”  is always better than watching “Game of Thrones.” Especially about the end spoilers and ending episode of Game thrones. 

This HBO series, a cultural phenomenon with no exemplar  and no clear successor, ended on Sunday with an amazing thrilling, 80-minute series finale, “The Iron Throne,” and it didn’t go down in history the way its creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss likely deliberate. 

These series’s last note was distinctly out of tune, the rushed and nonsensical final season led to a maudlin coda that didn’t fit in the ethos of the series. And while so much of “Thrones” was exquisite television, this ending betrays most of what came before it, not unlike the infamous “How I Met Your Mother” finale, which soured many fans.

Time will reveal if the fans who loathed the finale will be able to get over it and love “Game of Thrones” again. But at the end of the juggernaut series has consequences (particularly for HBO and its wallet) beyond the reaction to this episode. Once the puffery fades, what the show will leave behind is a hole in the cultural conversation where passion and anger used to thrive. 

Latest Game of Throne 

If you know any diehard fan of “Game of Thrones” fans,  they likely haven’t shut up about “Iron Throne” since the moment the credits rolled. That’s just what happens the week after an episode of “Games of Thrones” airs. We all show up to work a little late, a little tired, but fired up with our opinions about who did what right or wrong in Westeros. And then we do it again the following Monday.

As bad as the finale was, when we look back at “Game Of Thrones” in 10 or 20 years, I don’t think we’re going to focus on all the plot holes , character inconsistencies or any other criticism. I don’t know if we’ll really focus on the cool dragon battles or the shocking deaths that we loved, either.

What we’ll remember is how we felt about it, how we talked or tweeted about it, and how for a moment in time a fantasy series with ice zombies and fire wizards was a collective obsession, an inescapable phenomenon that even non-fans couldn’t resist commenting on. Because the finale was incredibly milquetoast, it’s not “Game of Thrones” the show that will last in our collective memory, but the larger, more mythical “game of Thrones” phenomenon.
