    I can assure you, while that may be the case for some, it isn't the case for most. As Valhalla said, it was entirely possible and expected that Dany would become the mad queen and Cersei would die. But the way they happened was * stupid.

    I'm sure some people would have loved Dany to be the true hero and restore peace etc. But from everything I've read and listened to, the people who are * off (including myself) accept the mad queen stuff and saw it coming at some point. It's how D&D have reached this point that's caused the uproar.

    I agree that the petition is absolutely pointless. But the fact that not everyone who dislikes this season has signed it, and it's still at around 1 million signatures shows the clear flaws of the season. It's subjective so of course people can be delighted with it, but I've seen plenty of people say "uck people are nitpicking because they didn't get the ending they wanted" trying to sit on their high horse. It's a * statement and it makes them look like smug *.

    Yep. They have Star Wars coming up and have completely rushed GoT so they can start working on that.

    They were offered 10 episodes this season and decided to go with 6. Even the people enjoying the season are lying if they don't think 10 episodes would serve this season better.

    Dany being the mad queen has been building since the beginning of you look back. The signs are there. Obviously nobody saw it clearly as Cersei was blatantly going down that route and taking the heat off her.

    I don’t get how people can say it’s rushed when it’s been happening since the beginning.

    I can agree that this season is rushed and no doubt it could have been done better. But I’m enjoying the ride while the greatest television show of all time comes to an end.

    I can honestly see both sides, I just think there’s an over reaction and the petition was the thing that pushed me over the edge.

    For me it went from slow build up, tension and a lot of interaction. To skipping about, no tension and little interaction between charcters and thats what ruined it. It's like they just wanted it to end so they just changed into different style of programme.

    I remember my only real complaint earlier was how the dragons were getting so big quick and what were they eating and that they should show a clip of them eating as it was a bit unbelievable how big they got in quite a short time. Now every episode has about 10-15 things you question, why people are acting that way or why didnt they get killed.

    It's like they pinpointed things they needed to happen and then just jumped to those scenes and done them in whatever quick way they could to get it done but it's made everyone act out of character and off and lost the realism it used to have.

    About 3 seasons ago, I feel like you liked and hated characters and would have been choking to see the end but how it's turned out as none of the characters to me anyway feel real now and im not bothered about how it ends.

    Actually thought this season couldn’t get any worse.

    * me I was wrong by a long way.

    Genuinely an embarrassment.

    Also I know this is from Episode 2 and 3 but it basically sums up the Season without any spoilers.

    I wanted to see Bronn of the blackwater back but that whole scene was really cringeworthy.
    How did a prisoner get to make a big speech and pick the new king anyway?
