Hey Charlie! Thanks for your video! Why didn't Sam get married to Gilly? She was expecting his baby now, so I wish they gave Sam the opportunity to stay with Gilly instead of becoming Maester

If you watched the last episode you would know why Bron became master of coin. Tyrion made sure the Lanisters debt to Bron had been paid. What he and Jamie had promised him. He became ruler of the reach and Harrenhall. The reach is the most fertile land in Westeros making him one of the richest people in Westeros. Why wouldn't he be named master of coin?

Nothing like sending one of the greatest warriors and most honorable and honest person in all of Westeros north of the wall. Only trying to rebuild a kingdom here. Don't need any of that nonsense hanging around to influence people. Lets just ignore the fact that he was the best possible option on the entire continent to be the most fair and honorable ruler. Lets just ignore the fact that the Unsullied and Dothraki were leaving Westeros anyway to never return. Why did Sansa let him go to the wall when she was now Queen of the north, where John had to pass through to get to the wall? Finale was just ridiculous. Who has a better story than Bran? Oh I don't know, John??? John was brought back to life by a God.

funny thing about the bran-action, obviously everyone needed the "enemy" to come together, to recognize the enemy you need threat, to recognize threat you need losses.
also, for whatever new thing you build afterwards, it aint exactly helping to still have all the old bastards around who were caught up in their traditions and old structures. they would just have wanted to get back to buisness as usual. like the vienna conference in 1815.
there is also a hint in the finale, when the lords simply laugh at "democracy". And these were the people who were open minded enough to do the unthinkable -unite with those they hated and fought since generations. Imagine what Tarly senior and Tywin would have said & done if they were still around. Not much of a help to build something new, right?
letting ppl die was exactly what had to happen in order to "break the wheel".

Contrary to what you say in this video, Jon’s is not blindly driven by honour. Yes he is an upstanding honourable person but he makes his own choices which shows his strong character. Examples as follows:
Ned Stark had a go at Jaime in one of the early episodes for betraying his king, which he did not see as justified despite the fact that he was mad and threatening to burn everyone. Yet Jon broke his vow to Danearys, so he saw his duty differently. I never quite understood Ned Starks stand on that. Easy to say until you are in that situation.
Jon broke his vow of celibacy with Ygritte.
He broke his vows when he rode off in the night to join Rob after Ned Starks death. Sam and Jon’s other supporters in the Nights Watch waylaid him and brought him back before it could be discovered.
So I am sure he will not hesitate to leave the Nights Watch and live with the Wildlings now. They love and respect him and he will no doubt become their leader in the tradition of Mance Rayder, who also was originally a member of the Nights Watch. John owes the Nights Watch nothing.

So no one got the Iron Throne in the end, it is kind of fitting

Bran the Broken. Jon should've pushed his ass out of another window.
He said he knew all along he would end up on the throne. That means that smug little bastard knew King's Landing would burn and didn't bother to tell anyone. No wonder the Night King was obsessed with offing the crippled fucker.
A motherfucker who can't get his dick up to produce offspring is going to tell the rightful heir he shall take no wife, and bear no children? Fuck you. Jon should've stuck with Daeny.

What was the point of Jon returning to the wall. The wall that no longer existed .. was destroyed completely by the Knight King and Viserion the Wight dragon. Also wasnt the wall built to keep out the army of the dead who also no longer existed by then. What is the knights watch now?

I really didn't think it was super odd that Bronn became the Master of Coin. They gave him Highgarden, which is the most wealthy of the holdings, and previous owners of Highgarden have been Master of Coin. Also he's a tight fisted son of a bitch who likes to hold onto his money so maybe he won't be as wasteful and lenient with the purse as previous MOC's have been. I do agree that the book will likely end him and Davos differently. I liked Sansa's ending and I think it may be true to the book. There was foreshadowing in earlier seasons and in the books concerning an independent North, so it wouldn't surprise me at all if that ends up happening in the books. I'm very anxious to see how all of the Night King stuff plays out in the books. I can't wait for more details and explanation. I think in the books the choice to go North will be Jon's. Or at least I hope it will be.

Have you considered that Melisandra came from Valeria, and Drogon flew off with Dany that direction. The other red priestess' are still out there in Volantis. If this wasn't the last episode, then Dany could conceivably be resurrected.

honestly, I think it would have made sense if Arya actually approved of Danerys's work on king's landing. She was there when they beheaded Ned, after all, and has become a 'cold-blooded assassin' since then. It would have been more interesting if during the dragon sequence Arya was running around dodging rubble and happily murdering everyone in the street that wasn't on fire. Then, once it was over, instead of agreeing with Tyrion outright, provided contrast to his point of view by telling jon it's what the people here deserved. They were extremely happy to see Ned die and bow to a fake queen and her bastard child when it was convenient for them, but ask them to bow to their true queen or be laid to waste and they basically responded with "prove it." This would have made the 'mad queen' thing less believable as a 'mad' queen (which it already isn't), but more believable as a 'not entirely unreasonable' queen. Then, when jon and danerys continue arguing anyway, Arya takes action by murdering drogon to give jon equal footing with danerys. Who knows, maybe she can take its face somehow as well - since she is apparently still part warg...

I guess they could have had lots of fun with this direction, just as they could have with the many thousands of others that have been speculated afterwards or theorized before hand. But it's pretty clear they just wanted it to end.

If the story would have took a little more time explaining the backstory and maybe less time in the battle scenes I think it would have better accepted. Although I liked E3 the way I watched it was I only was able to watch the last 15 min of it due to internet problems. After I got that worked out I was able to watch it again on the next viewing of it a few hours later. I do not feel I missed much and they made it look like only about 13 people survived. I feel if HBO would have been less successful in the fight scenes when we got to E4 and the commanders only reporting they lost half of their men It would have been more believable and they could have spent more time on the backstory. I think if folks felt like the season fell apart it is due to those mistakes. I feel it could had ended the same way with a little more backstory it would have been better received by fans.
ardith conley
ardith conley - 21 day ago
My reasoning here if a picture tells a 1000 words. The cinematic stunning scenes was telling the wrong story. Out of all that E3 action only y about 15 min of that long episode was really worth it.

Hi, Charlie. I guess you might have heard about the theory with Bran in reality being Brynden Rivers, who had plotted all this intricate mess to become the king. He refused to be the lord of Winterfell but he came all the way to KL to be elected as the king. If we take a closer look at all Bran's actions and quotes, it makes sense.

Sansa does not "annex" the North (to add or join); she "secedes" from the Seven Kingdoms (to leave). Remember the American Civil War? The South seceded from the Union.

They should have stretched this out to a full season and built off of Danny's insecurity about john being the true heir. pit Danny against John at end and John wins because morally she was wrong for being a power monger and he was the right guy from jump.

Wow, first time i'e heard of Amazon doing Lord Of The Rings as a TV series! Pressure got to be on them to make it as epic but vastly different in execution than what Peter Jackson's trilogy adaptation was in 2001-2003 and so on. Hmm cheers for the info there Charlie!

All this talk of ”winter is coming”, and then winter is over in just a few months!? With hardly no snow at all. No hardship due to winter. No food shortage. Nothing.
I HATE that the show was so speeded the last seasons, that they didn’t have the time to tell anything properly.

metaldad1974 - 23 days ago
This is my one and only fan theory. Bran truly represents George R.R. Martin. That's why he was crowned the King. Just think about it....Tyrion says whoever can tell the best "story" and knows the most would make the best ruler. Bran knows everything that happened and knows everything that will happen. Just like the writer of the entire story.

Many fans assume the prophecy must start when either Jon or Deny got the thrown. The thing about prophecies is they are true...even if they character in question is unaware. Jon was the Promised Prince....when he went to the Wall. There he started to be the hero expected. We had 6 seasons of the Prophecy in action. Dany was the never the fact just the aunt of the Promised Prince.
And the Prophecy never promised a King. In essence a heroic prince who never become king.

I don’t like Jon going to the north. I loved lord of the rings. Frodo had no connection to the Shire when he left he had a fitting end and he didn’t go alone. His uncle and Gandalf the white was with him. He should have been king. The wheel was not broken Bran just won , but it feels like a fake ending.

we all assume the iron Throne was destroyed bc the dragon saw łt as the thing that killed his mother or because he saw the "pointy thing" sticking out of her and then saw the throne. However, I think łt is because he smelled her hand. She touched the throne and so its scent would be on her. He saw she was dead, then smelled her, smelled something he never smelled before on her (I.e., he's familiar with johns smell.) and concluded łt was the throne. Thoughts?

Bron being master of coin makes sense because he started off as a low born, and ended up as the lord of Highgarden. He‘s wealthy now and has lands after coming from nothing. He’s basically the 50 Cents of westeros. His Westerosie rap moniker is 50 coins.

I really liked Tyrion's part in this episode. I loved the music and how it changed during each scene. I think it's interesting in Season 1 where the Starks were split apart and lost power and how at the end of Season 8 the Starks reign: Bran in the 6 kingdoms, Sansa as Queen in the North, and Jon as 1000 Commander of Night Watch.

Sam the chainless the first grand maester without a single link. What a load of bollox, the current grand master wouldn't step aside even though they are sort of chosen, or the pool of top maesters are and they decide between them who the GM is as it's a thankless job and halts there real work so its not something they are that bothered about but they wouldn't have accepted Sam.
Also they rest wouldn't have just let the north so solo, and Dora it matter, do they really need a queen, they may ax well stay part of the realm but stop all tribute to help rebuild.

You could just as easily say that Jon Snow chose love over duty. He bent the knee to his queen, but he was afraid what she would do to his sisters. So, he chose his love for his sister over his duty to Dany. Just like Ned chose to lay aside his honor in order to protect his daughter just before he was executed. Bronn is Master of Coin because he owns High Garden. He will be rich because of how productive High Garden is. The council was already asking Bronn about feeding the hungry and he says it will be taken care of. That is because Bronn will have to take care of it because he has the food. Casterly Rock has no more gold and King's Landing is laid waste. Someone has to fund reconstruction and provide food, which will fall to the Master of Coin. They can't just borrow from the Iron Bank I would imagine. So, by giving Bronn the duty to make sure there is money, they are giving him the responsibility of providing for the crown, which they very much need him to do.

one of the things that annoyed me the most was the fact that they destroyed the Iron Throne, which I actually wanted to happen because it was clear to a lot of people that this form of government isn't working....only to replace it with another monarchy that's not only similar to the old one but actually much weaker in practice (google poland royal elections) have every ruler elected means people are just going to be playing the game of thrones harder since there isn't a bloodline restriction anymore. Also, are we really supposed to believe that the other kingdoms are going to be totally fine with answering to one king while the North gets to stay independent? I feel like eventually the other kingdoms will break away too. Honestly I feel like that would have been a better ending; seven kingdoms being ruled by one king was working so they could go back to being separate kingdoms again like they were before aegon the conqueror came. As much as I like that samwell tried to recommend democracy it was understandable that it got shot down cuz all these people have ever known are monarchies; i think that line might have just been a hint at the fact that sometime in the far future westeros will eventually have some form of democracy
