The Biggest Questions After The GoT Finale

  • Published on May 22, 2019
  • There are threads left dangling, prophecies unanswered, and portentous warnings that now seem strange and pointless. Were these questions intentionally unanswered? Did the Game of Thrones writers simply forget about them or purposefully shunt them to the side when the show took unexpected turns?
    From the White Walkers' introduction in the first episode to the moment Arya Stark dispatched them all with a well-aimed strike, they were a terrifying mystery.
    Here and there, Game of Thrones dropped tantalizing hints about the White Walkers' culture that we never saw brought to any sort of coherent conclusion. We know that the Children of the Forest created them from human men, and that they needed healthy human babies to continue their line. We know that they took these babies to a place in their home in the Lands of Always Winter, which looked an awful lot like a civilized settlement. We heard them emit what sounded like screeches, but to them seemed to be a sort of language.
    Had they succeeded in tightening their frigid grip upon the world, they might have had plans beyond mayhem and death. Perhaps, as in the books, there were female White Walkers hidden away up north, and a mysterious and unique brand of ice magic unknown to any other race.
    Watch for more about the biggest questions after the GoT finale!

    The expectation of meaning has been subverted.

    The ending was a big waste. A let down to everyone who lost there time whatching this show. How can you let down such a big fan base... Shame on them.

    The biggest question- Will D&D ever admit their mistake?

    Some very good questions indeed but:
    1. How can you talk about all those religions but not mention the Old Gods of the North, the gods of the Starks who are the main characters?
    2. Grey Worm and the Unsullied were not returning to Essos, they were heading to Naath which is part of the continent of Sothoryos

    Pretty sure:

    1. White walkers were not intelligent with the exception of the Night King
    2. Children of the Forrest went extinct when they were all killed by the white walkers
    3. Night's Watch is more symbolic than anything. A place for "bastards and broken things" as Tyrion put it (roughly).
    4. No, they will not rebuild the Wall as there is no point.
    5. #4 is a dumb question
    6. Unsullied went to Naath, not back to Yunkai or Meereen or Astapor
    7. Daenerys died so there would be no reason the Ironborn stayed in Meereen
    8. Faith Militant in King's Landing died when Daenerys torched the city
    9. Prince of Dorne was chosen based on closest living relative -- I'm sure the ENTIRE royal family was not wiped out
    10. Prophecies did not mean anything since they were sometimes incorrect
    11. "Why are the seasons so long?" This is not reality. It's medieval mixed with fantasy. The season length is being questioned when, in the same video, the existence of Children of the Forrest and white walkers isn't questioned? Dumb question. The season of winter is also metaphorical for "dark period."

    The entire video is kind of dumb.

    The first six seasons consisted of 10 episodes, Seasons 7 and eight cut back to six. From what I can gather, the two men responsible for GOT's success were hired to work on the next Star War's trilogy scheduled to begin 2022. George R.R. Martin was agreeable with a 10 season 10 episode run for GOT. HBO was agreeable and ready to spend for the additional money needed to fund GOT. The problem was replacing the two and so it was agreed to limit seasons 7 and 8 to six episodes.
    That meant the flow of the show would be changed for those two seasons. This resulted in GOT feeling hurried and bloated. Seeasons 7 and 8 were, technically, brilliant. But the story suffered under the weight of expectations and the arcs of characters had to be cut, shortened or eliminated This would leave fans disappointed and angry.
    Fans would be left to wonder, what if the producers had stuck with 10 episodes per season.

    LMAO just making videos huh? The only question Jon that's it period. No one cares about the other bs you are talking about. Because the storyline was not about them. They were part of the story on the way. No one cares what happened to people who Dani freed. Because they were still going to be free under her reign. Thumbs down.

    It's heartbreaking, those guys did to the entire series what Daenerys did to Kings Landing. I can't even watch the old episodes now, none of it makes any sense since the show runners went mad and decided to end a story driven by prophecies by doing what was "unexpected". It's sad as hell.

    What if the twist is like this.
    The Night King may have foreseen a disaster to fall on Westeros.
    The white walkers aim to increase their numbers because there is impending doom in the future, which Westerosis will not be able to handle alone.
    What if that threat is greater than the white walkers themselves.

    So, Jon Snow gets betrayed and killed by Janos and other conspirators, then he gets revived and kills them being very righteous. Then he betrays and kills his queen who didn't just trust him but also loved him. Then he just go back to his old job. How just!

    I think DandD got a few phrases from GRRM and they tried to connect the dots in their own piss poor way.
    I think even in the books Jon would still slay Dany but the motivation for that would be very convincing, powerful and explained much better. I also think that the iron throne would be destroyed possibly by dragons. But I do believe we will get a less rushed up convincing ending. Though we may not like it.

    The Unsullied do not return to Essos. They leave for the island of Naath on the coast of Sothyros where Torgo Nudho promised Missandei they would go together when the war was over. Even though she dies he keeps his promise to go there and become the protector of her former people.

    When John Snow left, leading the wildlings North he basically became a fugitive and deserter. He wasn't supposed to go North. He was supposed to guard the wall.
    Bran already set himself up for a troubled and, most likely, short rule. Bronn is a terrible financial manager. He'll bankrupt the kingdom(s). Besides that, he doesn't have Sansa's support anymore. When Daenerys' loyalists find out John went North of the Wall they will want to kill him. Sansa will have a problem with that. You have a conflict right there. Also, if one of the aristocrats that elected Bran doesn't like what he's doing, they might try to secede and there are others that are just waiting for a moment of weakness to follow suit.

    If people can withstand new sets and/or graphics, and a new cast, these could all make new seasons.
