    All these talking points are the effects of bad writing. Thanks, D&D.

    The unsullied held Jon that is why they couldn't make him king.

    I don’t know, maybe it got so big that it was impossible for anyone to end well, including Martin. Stanley Kubrick could have done it. But he’s dead.

    The Iron Islands and Dorne got a great idea from Sansa’s impulsive secession. That’s why Bran was looking for the dragon.

    The nights watch doesn’t exist. That’s why he was sent one except Sansa really knew “sending him to the watch” is code for setting him free.

    well 5 of them at least new who jon is - sam, bran, sansa, arya and tyrion

    So the lords of Westeros come to Kings Landing and they have the Unsullied bring them Tyrion. Jon is also a prisoner, but they are not interested in him.

    He is the only Male Stark to carry on the name. Sansa children won't have the name Stark. ???well neither does Jon unless he gets pardoned and legitimized by Bran or Sansa

  • Somdet Deenok

    Cuz bran is not a Stark. He is the 3 eyed raven

    Drogon takes Dany to the Red priestesses they resurrected her and she goes back to westros and burns the seven kingdoms to Ash

    bpmdchris157 4 months ago +1

    smh imagine the absolute scenes if instead of destroying the iron throne, drogon tries to burn Jon Snow, BUT because of his true lineage and the dragon in his blood, he is left unburnt and unharmed, then drogon burns the throne and flies away as he did. Why was this never explored, Dani and Jon were both related and in this way it could've made sense if he was unburnt as well, also would've made for a crazy twist no one would have seen coming.

    my bigges WTF was why did arya just walk around with her face? she
    literally walked through enemy territory to kill the queen and noone
    seemed to care!
    her whole story line was a complete waste!

  • Ana Maria
    Ana Maria 4 months ago

    Why didn't Drogon burn (JN wasn't fire-proof) or bite Jon Snow? Dragons killed Targaryen before. No biggie there. Why didn't Grey Worm kill Jon Snow? Why didn't the unsullied or the dothraki? Ridiculous.

    The North has fought so hard to get the North back. That why

  • Sebas M

    "he took his vows very seriously" his entire line in the whole season was "you're my queen, i love you , you will always be my queen" then he stabbed her

    Who was that green eye person that Arya had to kill according to prophecy?

  • Glory Days31
    Glory Days31 4 months ago +3

    My biggest WTF moment was the realization that this last season was horseshit. So many questions and so many plot holes and the the story was executed in the worst possible way. It was like skipping through chapters in a book and not delving into important character development and explanations. This is worse than Lost......yeah I’m saying it.

  • PouncingPandae
    PouncingPandae 4 months ago

    It's not difficult, they wanted to be independent because it won't always be bran in charge.

  • Gerardo Ruiz

    Biggest wtf was what did Podrick do to those girls?!

  • tariusblue1201
    tariusblue1201 4 months ago +1

    I hope Drogon took Danaerys body to the Red Priestess so they can resurrect her and she can atone for what she did. I will always be Team Danaerys. I hate the way the writers destroy her Character.

  • Notorious1503
    Notorious1503 4 months ago

    They mention the time skip was a few weeks how the hell did they build kings landing back up so fast....

  • Jes Aus

    So, in summary, the purpose R+L=J/A was just for D&D to make the GoT. With all the build-up, been trash this season, eliminate the Targaryen Clanned all at once. WTF

  • 권용대
    권용대 4 months ago

    I just wonder why Daenerys had to go crazy, is it just family tradition with genes? Being angry and being mass murderer isn’t identical; She was learning lessons during all the seasons for nothing, and I’m sad for her.

  • Thehansello
    Thehansello 4 months ago

    Awful writing with the earlier seasons scale ruined by teleporting characters from one place to another within minutes of screen time. Grey Worm was so quick he overtook Jon Snow with time to execute Lannister’s too. Arya travelled from Winterfell to Kings Landing within minutes of screen time which was handy because despite seven seasons with Cersei on her list, she changed her mind once she got there.

  • dadamosky
    dadamosky 4 months ago

    Why did Sansa opt out of being a part of the realm? Conflict of interest. Since Bran is her brother, if he did ANYTHING for Sansa, or sided with her in any way, it could be considered favoritism. They could have certainly explained that, but that is my take on that topic.

  • Faceless Opinion
    Faceless Opinion 4 months ago

    The biggest wtf question is why didn’t we see this disaster coming?

  • MsBillygrey

    Wtf why is Greyworm given more screen time and dialogues over more important characters in the last two episodes. ??

  • Cerebral Cortex CEH

    Still with the fan theories? If there's going to a prequel that means we'll never know all the answers.

    My biggest WTF moment is "why have I been recommending this show to everybody for a decade?"

  • Scott Summers
    Scott Summers 4 months ago +1

    This season was super rushed. If this was a 10 episode season, then maybe we can have fewer plot holes. Weiss and Benioff screwed up with the bad writing this season. AND WTF WAS BRAN THE KING?!
    PS. Goodbye on that Emmy for Best Drama next year.

    How come after the unsullied peace out, Bran wasn’t just like, alright, Jon you aren’t exiled anymore.

  • Lorenzo Sorice
    Lorenzo Sorice 4 months ago +1

    There is no Night's Watch anymore. It was just to get the Unsullied off their backs, it was "punishment". Jon is now a free man. He didn't want to be Kind, the throne, or anything to do with politics. What he always wanted. This is the more clueless group IGN could muster up...

    “John snow takes his vows very seriously” Pft 😒

      She indirectly murdered everyone in kings landing and broke her brother up with the woman he loved just because she didnt like daenarys.

  • C Jackson

    Jon Snow is Azor Ahai

    Trying to make sense of this show is like trying to explain why the world is flat.

  • Mathieu Bishop
    Mathieu Bishop 4 months ago

    My explanation for Sansa wanting a separate kingdom even with Bran on the throne is simply because her brother will eventually be followed by another king (or queen?) from another house who will probably not come from the North and will not be as sympathetic to the North's interests... so she better declare independance now while her own brother sits on his wheelchair-throne...

    THEORY: Drogon took Dany to Valyria to the hidden grey scale horde! where they then revive her and have her become the grey scale queen of the horde returning too Westeros with vengeance!

  • Robert B

    Jon straight up told Arya to break the rule of no women to castle black so... I don’t think he’ll abandon the night watch but staying in castle black full time nah

  • trent kursen
    trent kursen 4 months ago

    Why doesn't Jon just say F castle black and go to Winterfel, its not even in the "kingdom" anymore

    • Notorious1503
      Notorious1503 4 months ago

      Straight up or even why not just say just pretend til greyworms leaves thats it

  • Carlos Moreira

    The North always had a King of the North. Why would that change now? Rhetorical.

  • Filippos Vourliotis

    So,Starks rule everyone now and they exile the last Targaryen with the wildlings. Stark family won the battle.

  • James Barrows
    James Barrows 4 months ago +4

    I believe Jon wasn't only escorting the wildlings, he was settling with them too. Not only that, but he's now the leader of their tribe, but nothing like Mance Rayder, who was king of all tribes, since all the other ones aren't threatened anymore and remain free. Tormund sees Jon as his leader and has boasted about it on the show. Also, as said, "stories" make kings/chieftains and Jon has a hell of one, especially when he literally died for them.

    My only question is how greyworm move places so fast

    • Connie Smith
      Connie Smith 3 months ago

      Jon leaves as Grey Worm is overseeing the execution of Lannister soldiers but then is able to Jon to where he is going to talk to Danni.

    • Notorious1503

    Kevin Liverpool 4 months ago +11

    So what about the White Walkers body circles?
    Shouldn't Bran know what's west of westeros?
    So winter isn't still coming?
    Why did Greyworm wait on all of Westeros to assemble if he wanted to execute Jon and Tyrion anyways? Plus why would he accept Jon simply being sent to Nights Watch?
    Didn't Arya still have a green eyed person to kill?

    • Notorious1503
      Notorious1503 4 months ago

      Yes this is the best comment

  • Paul White
    Paul White 4 months ago +1

    He isn't a Stark anymore. The three eyed crow/raven being King makes no sense without a subversive reason that we will never know.

    Do you think that there will be GOT movies in the future with the cast reuniting to make them?

  • Chris Godfrey
    Chris Godfrey 4 months ago +1

    The dothraki was shown as boarding some ships so the assumption would be they are returning to the great grass sea, that or they took the option Tyrion gave for lands to farm and settle
