    1Daenerys Becoming A Villain In Some Fans Opinion Out Of Nowhere
    Ultimately Some Fans Wanted Her Too Win And Felt She Was The Hero She Seemed To Be And Felt This Turn Was A Betrayal To Her Character.
    The One Thing They Really Hated Was Her Killing Children And Innocent People When In Previous Seasons While She Could Be Ruthless She Refused To Kill Innocents.
    There were hints though that she would turn out this way as evidenced by her throne of ashes vision and the fact that she had two people torched for refusing to bend the knee to her

  • 2Poor Decision Making From The Characters
    And There Is Tyrion Who Continued To Make Decisions That Made Things Worse For Danaerys And Partly Causes Her To Become Evil
    There Is Also That Danaerys Lost A Second Dragon And Later Her Friend Just Because She Wasn't Paying Attention And Should Have Spotted The Ambush From Euron Before It Happened
    For Example Their Battle Tactics That End Up Getting People Killed

  • 3Unsatisfying Character Deaths And Exits
    Now There Is Even The Death Of Danaerys And Jon Going To The North When Some Fans Feel One Or Both Should Have Become The Ruler Of The Seven Kingdoms
    Felt More Characters Should Have Died In The Long Night.
    Examples They Wanted Cersei To Die Brutally And Didn't Like Jaime Going Back To Her.

  • 4The Idea That The Plot Is Being Rushed
    Generally Most Agree Everything May Have Been Better Received If They Did A Full 10 Episode Season Or Just Did A Couple More Seasons
    Even People Who Love The Season Feel This Way

  • 5Filming Mistakes Such As Forgetting A Coffee Cup And How The Darkness In A Battle Appeared On Certain TVs
    When it comes to the darkness scenes the intention was for us to be there with the characters having a hard time seeing because of the night but having TVs on certain settings made it too dark.
    The Darkness Was Also So They Could Save Money On CGI Effects And The Scene Was Designed Like It Was Going To Be On The Big Screen.
    Then in the final someone didn't notice a water bottle

  • 6Feeling Like The Way Certain Story Arcs Concluded Was Anticlimactic
    Even Jon killing Danaerys and then after all the build up of him being the true King he ends up back at the night watch and Bran who hasn't really done anything becomes king
    And of course the Night King situation where he almost wins but gets taken out by a sneak attack with a knife and the White Walkers never even fight anybody.
    For example Cersei and the Golden Company being built up as a credible threat when they killed a dragon but Danaerys defeats them in minutes and they just surrender

  • 7Feeling Like They Could And Should Have Made More Seasons
    It Was Actually Stated That HBO Offered To Let Them Make More Seasons But They Refused
    Martin Also Envisioned The Series As A 13 Season Show.
    In Hindsight The Night King Conflict, The War With Cersei, And Danaerys Becoming The Mad Queen Could Have Been Better Received If They Had Happened In Separate Seasons.

  • 8Things That Happened Ultimately Made Events In Past Seasons Pointless
    Like Last Season Danaerys Really Could Have Easily Won Against Cersei Without Harming Innocent People
    And Jon Being A Targaryen Was Only Used To Cause Conflict With Danaerys And Became Irrelevant When He Was Sent Across The Wall.
    Also As Revealed At The End Of Last Season The Mission Beyond The Wall Was Pointless Because Cersei Goes Back On Her Word

  • 9Feeling Some Scenes Were Unnecessary
    Like The Sex Scenes Or Everybody Drinking After Surviving The Long Night
    The only thing I did not like about season 8 was Jaime and Brienne having sex. I felt that this scene was shoehorned in and betrayed Briennes ideas and portrayal of her strengths as a fierce woman

  • 10The Idea That The Show Lost It's Realism
    They Also Feel The Election At The End Is Unrealistic Because Why Would Everybody Listen To Tyrion
    Also Rhaegal Getting Killed By Three Perfect Shots But The Next Episode They Can't Even Hit Drogon
    Example Many Characters Surviving The Long Night Despite Overwhelming Odds
    + 3 comment(s)

  • 11They Generally Feel That Every Episode After Episode 2 Were Terrible
    Even the Critics feel that way
    Episode 3 was not bad. It got over a 70 on rotten tomatoes

  • 12The Night King And His Army Being Killed In One Episode After Years Of Build Up
    And some felt that the night King should have been the true final villain and wanted to know more about him.
    It especially bothers fans that he is killed by a sneak attack instead of in a fight and it was Arya and not Jon who killed him.
    He ultimately was a plot device to get everybody together and set up future events revolving around the throne

  • 13Prophecies Seemingly Being Ignored
    Though It Can Be Argued That They Did Come True But With A Twist
    One particular prophecy was the idea that a chosen one would be the one who saves the world by killing the night King but now it seems it will be whoever kills Danaerys
    I think the valonquar was Jaime because he was born after Cersei and that choking the life out of her was him hugging her the moment the walls collapsed and killed both of them. Prophecies are open to interpretation until the moment they are actually carried out

  • 14The Show Not Ending The Way They Want
    Generally The Ending That Fans Wanted Was One That Brought All The Characters Full Circle And Answered All Questions Even If Everybody Died In The End.
    I just cant believe that a lot of fans want Game Of Thrones To Have a Disney like happy ending ending for many characters. Game of thrones is not that kind of show and it has been making itself clear on that since the first season
    Though Of Course The Creators Knew That No Matter What Ending They Went With It Was Going To Disappoint Somebody

  • 15Feeling Like The Season Should Have Been Better Than It Was Because Of Taking Two Years To Make It
    Though It Took That Long Because Of The Weather And Traveling

  • 16Bringing Fan Favorite Couples Together Just To Tear Them Apart Make Your Case
  • 17Character Development Going The Opposite Direction Than What Was Set Up Over The Years Make Your Case
  • 18The Fact That Even Some Critics Are Not Liking The Season
    Season 8 Overall Is The Lowest Scored Season
    Other Than One Episode Critics Have Always Gave The Show Great Reviews Until This Season
    The Final 3 Episodes Got Low Rotten Tomatoes Scores

  • 19All The Work They Put In Too Theories Being For Nothing Make Your Case
  • 20Generally Feeling The Show Should Have Waited For The Books To End
    Well they could not at this point because many of the characters such as Bran and Arya were still very young and a lengthy timeskip would throw the pacing off. Plus Martin takes an extremely long time on his books. He had 5 to six years to finish winds of winter and he blew it
    Also A Possibility Of Martin Doing A Huge Timeskip In The Final Books Anyway
    Though Come To Think About They Could Have Waited And Explained The Aging Of The Actors As Part Of The Long Traveling And How Long They Stayed At A Certain Place

  • 21Just All The Wasted Opportunities With The Plot And Characters
    A lot of fans feel they should have done some things differently

  • 22Feeling 6 Episodes Was Not Enough To Justify Everything That Happened In The Season
    More Episodes Also Could Have Gave Characters More Development Into Why They Ultimately Made The Decisions They Made
    Specifically That Things On This List Would Have Been Better Received If It Was 10 Episodes Or Had Another Season
    It was already stated that one of the problems people had with the season was that two hours of it consisted of characters doing nothing but sit around which is quite boring and defeated the purpose of the episode time extensions

  • 23The Unfortunate Implications Around The Female Characters
    But some people just misunderstood what Sansa was saying.
    Like Danaerys Going Crazy,The Only Black Female Character Getting Killed, Or The Misinterpretation That Sansa Is A Stronger Person Because She Got Raped.
    People even feel that Jon killing Danaerys has negative implications because of a man killing a woman

  • 24Certain Characters Being Sidelined
    And some of the actors becoming more expensive so their screen time was shorter to save money
    But this might be because of how more of the actors have busy schedules such as shooting movies and couldn't be used more.

  • 25Not Answering Certain Questions
    And the final leaves us with more questions

  • 26The Idea That The Writers Were Just Being Lazy
    It is also stated that George actually told them how he wants to end the books but not how he intends to get there.
    I think they were actually tired. They had to work without source material to back them up and the episodes were longer than usual
    Generally That They Didn't Put In As Much Work As Previous Seasons
    + 2 comment(s)

  • 27Feeling That The Characters Wouldn't Make The Decisions They Ultimately Made
    In the finale there is even the question of why would Grey Worm keep Jon and Tyrion alive
    Like Jaime Going Back To Cersei, Danaerys Murdering Children And Innocent People.
    There Was Even Bronn Threatening To Kill Jaime And Tyrion Despite Their Friendship

  • 28Not Getting To See Certain Moments Happen
    Like Jon Telling Arya And Sansa About His Heritage And How They Reacted

  • 29Things That Happened In The Season Just Don't Make Sense Too Them
    Like Why Bran, Why Did Danaerys Go Mad, Or Why Did Drogon Burn The Throne Among Others

  • 30Feeling Like Certain Character Arcs Should Have Ended Differently
    Generally The Fact Certain Characters Did Not Get A Happy Ending
    Once again the Danaerys And Jaime situation
    Some Fans Also Don't Feel Right About Jon's Ending Feeling He Should Have Become King Or He Goes To The Wall By His Own Choice.

  • 31Feeling That Certain Moments Were Just For The Sake Of Fan Service
    Like Clegane Bowl, Arya Being The One Who Kills The Night King, And Generally Just Confirming Certain Fan Theories
    Even Arya Hooking Up With Gendry And Brienne With Jaime
    Even Danaerys Becoming The Mad Queen Was Something Some Fans Wanted.

  • 32Feeling That HBO Should Have Just Got New Showrunners And Writers To Continue The Series To End It Properly
    Because Ultimately The Seasons Were Shorter Because The Creators Wanted To Move On To Other Projects.
    And Viewers Have Lost Confidence In The Creators To The Point They Wish They Got Fired

  • 33Poor Character Development Or Contradicting It
    While What Happened With Danaerys Was Foreshadowed Fans Feel They Didn't Properly Develop Her Change

  • 34Feeling That The Bittersweet Ending Is Actually More Bitter Than Sweet
    Because Of The Tragic Nature Of Danaerys And Jon's Ending And Some Characters Happy Endings Not really Being Happy Considering Real Life History And Facts From The Books
    Also Fans Feel Uneasy About Bran Being King And Even Believe That He Purposely Caused Everything.

  • 35Generally The Season Making Creative Decisions Similar Too Franchises Like Star Wars Or DC Extended Universe That Also Caused Fans To Rage Quit
    Generally How All Of Them Tried To Subvert Expectations
    Compare What Danaerys Did Too Superman Snapping Zod's Neck Or Luke Considering Killing His Nephew

  • 36It May Or May Not Be How The Book Series Ends And The Books Might Do It Better
    but of course books dont have to deal with budgets, scheduling, and running time so of course it will seem better
    Ultimately If How The Show Ends Is How The Books End The Show Gave It Away
    We cant say for show because George R.R Martin has a reputation for taking a very long time writing his books

  • 37Feeling Certain Characters Were Just Pointless Or Terrible
    Especially Euron Greyjoy
    Even Bronn's Small Role Was Just To Explain Why He Became The Master Of Coin
    Some fans question what was the point of Bran's Powers in the season

  • 38Feeling That They Could Have Written It Better Than The Writers
    Because of their theories and close studying of the books and show is why they feel this way

  • 39Bran Stark Ultimately Becoming The King Of The Seven Kingdoms
    Generally Fans Feel Other Characters Deserve It More Than He Does
    Even the question of if his rule would even fix everything
    There Is Also The Issue Of How Long He Will Live Considering That Three Eyed Ravens Live A Long Time
    + 2 comment(s)

  • 40Ultimately Some Being Unsatisfied With The Ending Make Your Case
  • 41The Plot Building Up To Certain Things Happening But Ends Up Going In Another Direction
    For Example Cersei And The Night King Being Built Up As Huge Threats But Both Having Anticlimactic Deaths

  • 42The Leaks Especially The Possible Leak Of The Ending
    Though It Is Also Rumored That They Filmed Multiple Endings To Avoid The True Ending Being Spoiled
    Ultimately The Leaks Gave Away That Bran Would Be King And The Fate Of Other Characters
    Whoever is leaking that stuff is not being nice because they are prematurely spoiling things for everybody. This kind of behavior makes the quality of the show look lower than it actually is

  • 43The Idea That The Showrunners Just Rushed The Season So They Could Make The Future Star Wars Movies Make Your Case
  • 44Feeling Certain Characters Should Have Died And Others Should Have Lived Make Your Case
  • 45Feeling Certain Character Moments Should Have Happened To Other Characters
    Or Cersei Being The One Who Burns Down Kings Landing
    Like Jon Being The One Who Kills The Night King.
    Or Arya Or Jaime Killing Cersei

  • 46The Overall Message Being A Criticism Of Humanity Make Your Case
  • 47Feeling The Final Conflict Should Have Just Been Against The Night King Or Cersei Being A More Credible Threat Make Your Case
  • 48The Showrunner's Reasons For Why The Season Went The Way It Did Make Your Case
  • 49Mixed Feelings On Jon's Fate Make Your Case
  • 50The Leaks Especially What They Said About The Possible The Final Ending
    Do not trust what leaks say until the episode actually comes out
