What are your thoughts of Game of Thrones ending?

Anyone else feeling the cast just didn't seem to have the same spark?  All theories of how the show would end, were out the window.  

Not sure I'm digging HBO's decision on this one.

You're going to find a small number of people that will get angry with an assessment like this. I think most of us agree. Personally, it felt like they just gave up, but the original writer said it would have taken 5 more seasons to end such a complex plot and characters. So they wanted to just figure out how to end it earlier before the show tanks. 

That being said, I also just found out the director just got a deal for the next Star Wars movie and might have rushed this to get it over with. If that's the case, then I am expecting another Star Wars flop because they just hired someone that can't properly complete a major production. 

I personally felt the change in season 7. It was dramatically different and I didn't even realize thats about where the book ends.

I have the same thoughts exactly. The story is half-baked and some major characters were not given the chance to evolve. There were also some scenes in the last season that were unexplained. It was frustrating to watch.

I think it was not bad.

I think the biggest problem with the last season of the format change. Those 90-minute episodes just had too much. A few cliffhangers would have made it feel less rushed. Like the last 3 episodes should have been, the siege on kingslanding and stopped as soon as Dany snaps. Then an episode of Dany finishing the job up to Jon stabbing her, then let us sit with that for a week. Then finish off the rest. I think we all had personal theories and not many of us were right, we need more time to accept that the show wasn't during what we thought and to get invested in the new direction. 

I didn't like all the storylines, but the final episode was underwhelming but solid. I think how things ended was pretty good, just getting there was a little messy.

Isn't there like 1.5 million people who have signed a petition for them to redo Season 8?

Today, I found myself in tears for a solid two hours. I'm utterly devastated. It finally struck me, and struck me hard, that this is ending. I haven't been a book fan (nerd) for as long as some of you. I entered the arena in 2011, which I assume is a fairly large cohort since I got into the books after binging Season 1 of Game of Thrones in several days. Game of Thrones blew me away because it felt like...FINALLY...finally...someone had done the Great Fantasy I was craving. Up until I saw this season, the only other great, or even good, fantasy on film, in my opinion, was Lord of the Rings. Lord of the Rings, however, was based on a book series written more than a half century ago trackeasy.fun/usps/ . Game of Thrones felt REAL, it felt NEW, it felt like we, as a society, had been blindly repeating the same narrative structures and tropes in our stories for literal years/decades and suddenly we were collectively slapped in the face and awoken to new, better, different. With the death of Ned Stark, we realized stories could be something more. The hero doesn't always win because in real life, heroes don't usually win. To me, this story about direwolves and dragons was one of the realest, truest stories I have ever heard. I'm sure many of you all had a similar experience, either with the books, or the show, so I won't dwell on this. We know.

It could be better. The ending wasn't as good as I expected.
