Here’s my problem.
I’m not afraid of an unhappy or tragic ending. I fully expect it.
What I’m afraid will happen is that the ending will be illogical and stupid.
The blazing speeds of characters and armies in Seasons 7 and 8 are just one example.
Jon/Aegon’s idiotic generalship is another. No need to list them all. Danaerys has been no more adept.
I’m all in favor of prophecy biting the Hero in the ass trying to evade it. That’s what Greek Tragedy is all about. Never ask advice from the Delphic Oracle!!!
I don’t mind if it turns out to be wrong. Mel is great at getting it wrong.
We set up salt and smoke. We have the Prince that was Promised. The Last Hero. Etc. What do we get? Arya. I have nothing against a Mary Sue, but let’s at least build her up to be a Contender. I’m not dismissing her because she’s a GIRL. I just don’t like how prophecy was thrown under the bus.
I’ve devoted 9 years to watching, and re-watching this.
Don’t pull a Sopranos, a Lost or a Battlestar Galactica on us.
I blame everyone involved. Martin, for not finishing the story. I blame Benioff and Wise, who are obviously itching to move on to Star Wars and Confederates. If the latter will be as racially tone deaf as GoT, let HBO end it now.
I fear a careless and stupid ending.
