It’s been a little over three years since the final season of Game of Thrones aired, and the internet is still ablaze with fans expressing their disappointment over the ending of Game of Thrones. While it’s always hard to say goodbye to a show that we’ve invested so much time in, many feel that the grossly abbreviated season was rushed and sloppy, with key plot points falling flat. Even more frustrating is the fact that the series finale seemed to ignore years of character development in favor of a tidy, albeit unsatisfying, resolution. While it’s unlikely that we’ll ever see another show quite like Game of Thrones, here’s hoping that future series can learn from its mistakes and give us the satisfying endings we deserve.
Amidst all the hype and furor over Game of Thrones, Twitterati feels that with every passing episode, the writers haven’t made that great of an effort to put their best out there, keeping in mind that this is the series finale.
Apart from the fact that the battle of Winterfell was barely visible to the eyes (unless you had night vision glasses), Bran’s frustrating blank stare despite claiming to be the know-it-all, it was the fourth episode that tipped viewers off that they started complaining.

“Pissed” was my GoT worshipping friend’s verdict. “How could they do this?” she fumed with dejection when I asked her if Episode 4 was worth it. Jon Snow didn’t even pat Ghost on the head. Poor Ghost. Jaime left Brienne after sleeping with her, another dragon was killed, major characters who were nurtured with heartwarming build-up slew ruthlessly, oh, and not to forget the Starbucks coffee that was in front of Daenerys. Either that’s a crew mishap or cheeky product placement. Whatever fans had only one thing in mind after watching Episode 4– ‘It sucked’.
We give you a glimpse of what frustrated fans had to say on Twitter–

Me on the phone with the Game of Thrones writers after watching Arya reject Gendry, Jon getting rid of Ghost, Jaime leaving Brienne for Cersei, Rhaegal and Missandei getting killed and Dany starting to go mad all in the same episode #GameofThronespic.twitter.com/JOqEunBfd7

Holy crap, #GameofThrones is completely falling apart. Some of the worst writing I have ever seen in any TV show. It is heartbreaking seeing the world GRRM built being treated like that. What a shitshow… pic.twitter.com/upNQfkb93q

Dany was reduced to begging Jon.
Brienne was reduced to crying on her nightgown for Jamie.
Sansa was reduced to a xenophobic opportunistic bitch.
Arya was reduced to a cold mess.
Missandei, the ONLY BLCK WOMAN. was reduced to CHAINS. C H A I N S.
