Just finished the finale.
So... what the hell is wrong with everyone? That was fine! Ideal? Probably not, but I've had my fair share of dud finales before and GOT comes nowhere near close to any of those stinkers or bad cliffhangers that never received a pay-off.
Obviously all the Misery Kathy Bates types out there were expecting something way different to what we got, but everything about felt just about it right to me.
Maybe it'll take a long time for the last season to sink in for a lot of fans, and it'll slowly gain more appreciation over time. Or maybe I'm just the only one who understood it? Who knows? Maybe everyone else hated all the Marvel-like imagery of destruction and carnage reminiscent of ID4 or Godzilla, and I simply got a kick out of the silliness of it all? There is a higher degree of schlockiness here that probably infuriated all the aficionados for "high end golden age" TV drama, but whatevs, I got my own satisfaction from it.
