    So my prediction of the everything works out ending was proven completely wrong. I assumed that would be the ending because nothing was being built or set up to go in a different direction. Silly me, it's my fault for being naive. I spent this whole video complaining about how D&D don't care about properly setting things up, I should have expected a completely out of nowhere left turn into crazy town. Part 2 now out! https://youtu.be/wuiNRpeqg3A

      @Bobby Bautista I should think so good sir! No one wants a spoon ,golden or otherwise shoved up the rear end. And 2-bit 'show-runners' deff wouldn't make an add spooning any better. If Emilio Clarke herself rode a dragon to me to deliver said golden ass spooning, I still would not be interested. I highly doubt any one else would think that was a positive alternative either. I mean 1) I think feeling violated was already the issue clearly a gold violation doesn't make it better
      2) it makes me very curious how you came to this scenario to make your point. You could've said literally anything but you chose this 🤔

    Arya killing the KN is the worst scene in history of television, stupid on so many levels! First, Arya's arc has nothing to do with the NK; Jon, Sam, Theon, even Dany are far more logical choices.
    But ok, let her kill him - but not this laughable, ridiculous, retarded way - teleporting/jumping behind him (his entire army is behind him ffs, did she jump over all of them?), then screaming like an idiot just to warn him, then he stare at her, instead to kill her instantly, like Theon (same sh*t as that undead giant at Lyanna, exactly the same episode, exactly the same D&D retarded and lazy writing). And then her cheap little trick, where are his lighting reflexes now?

    Instead why she didn't jump from the tree or something? Hey why not throwing knife at him? Why not use bow and arrow?? Imagine this scene: Theon's sacrifice is actually useful, he attacks the NK, NK stabs him, but Theon stand up again attacking him again; NK is surprised, impressed, curious, whatever, but while he is busy with Theon, Arya (lurking in the shadows behind Bran) aims at his blue eye. He finally realize she is there, but is too late. Boom! He is dead. Remember the scene from episode 1, the first scene with Arya and Bran ever? With bow and arrow training? Full circle.

    Or, or how about this one: NK is aproaching Bran, then Theon stand up again; NK stabs him again but Bran jumps from his wheelchair and stab NK! Nk is shocked and then he dies. 'What'?! you say. Here is the explanation: It wasn't Bran it was Arya (show canon: faceless assassins can use any face). Yes, Bran was marked, he is behind the tree or something, he switched places with Arya immediately before the NK arrives.

      what i would have wanted to see
      1- Arya tries to kill Jamie using one of her faces, only to have Bran stop her.
      2- Jamie asks Bran why Tommen committed suicide and to learn the bitter truth. This where Bran's reply of "the things I do for love." better comes into play.
      3- A cruel and bitter death for Cersei
      4- the Golden Company being more than just a handful of extras
      5- have the Night King the final battle
      6- have Jon Snow being Aegon Targaryen actually mean something

      and that's just to start

        Theon's back stabbing the Night King would have worked on a few foreshadowed levels.
        The famous fight of Ned Vs Ser Arthur Dane ended with a friend back stabbing Dane, yet Ned got all the credit. So John getting all the credit while Then gets the kill would have been an echo to the fight that Legless the Bird Warger witnessed.
        This also would have shown a true progression from Theon, as his pride is now completely behind him. Then John FINALLY learns to just STFU and let a lie unite the peoples.

                    bruh, i started watching in season 2 and my graduation papers were about the first three books. I graduated when season 3 was running, and I didn't watch it until AFTER my finals because I didn't want to get confused about details.
                    My nerdy ass English teacher and my nerdy ass self were both big fans of the books and show, and how bad the final season(s) was I'm almost embarrassed about choosing the story. Hard to explain, but I feel like it was all a huge waste of time, especially if the books are going to be finished in the year 3000.

                          Damn it, your idea about Jon and Theon tag-killing the Night King sounds so much better than what we got that I'm actually angry now. Except I'm imagining it more like Aragorn and Boromir's final scene in Fellowship.

                                                Im BEGGING millenials to look up the word "literally" before using it incorrectly. Literally doesnt mean "really". Or "alot". It means the LITERAL book version of word. So "erasing" would mean the LITERAL form of erasing = say....an "eraser" from a pencil actually...PHYSICALLY BEING ERASED. NOT "metaphorically" being erased the way he means it here. Almost EVERY time you kids say "literally" you're ACTUALLY meaning "metaphorically". But you've gotten used to hearing/using the word literally. Before you make a video proclaiming how dumb others are...at MINIMUM try to understand the basic words you plan to use. Perhaps spend the time you spent watching movies/TV picking up a book. Or dictionary. Or go to college like we did. #ughhhmillenials

                                                            Let’s just jump to something - Dany as Evil Queen was set up from season two.
                                                            It’s foretold, on tv, Arya will kill the Night King.
                                                            Big summation at the end.
                                                            Bran tells you the only reason he’s there to become King. He made Hodor a brainless slave, so why not fiddle events so he gets to be King.

                                                            FYI. The events of Lord of the Rings in the books are over years, the film suggests weeks.
                                                            Note: in the book Sam eventually goes to the grey havens as he did carry the ring and for a lot longer.

                                                                  And then seeing John, a human who had just destroyed a bunch of the walkers, and shattered ONE of the Blue Eyes walkers and Lieutenants of theNight King's...

                                                                  He counts haw many Riders there are so he can worn the others how many dead could be coming and Night's Watch need, because the short sighted greed or men have only sent unwanted boys and criminals due to he executed North to join the Brothers of the Nights Watch.

                                                                  At least there might now be a moment for John and The Wildlings to run - sail south to the protection of The Wall.

                                                                  John got ready to head for the boat/ship himself, pausing to look at the Night King again before he turned to go.

                                                                  The Night King seems smile a cruel and mocking smile which chills John, but that fear and determination se

                                                                  Just as John takes a bracing breath to go the Night King moves, extending his arms and raised ALL of the dead in a single moment raising all who had died while trying to runaway and at least die ELSE Where in order to at the very least, not become a part of the killing of all life, and in that space between one breath and the next a gasping sickening horror of the Night King raising all of the dead, regardless of what those once living people had tried so hard to fight against, and the the very least die away from the White Walker's horrific reach.

                                                                  In a nightmarish moment of people fleeing the terrifying creature pursuing them, John Sees. The Night King raising every dead that had died here, the Night King added so many more to his army, the impending death that waited ALL of humanity, unless they get help from the south.

                                                                  When Aryya slammed a Balurian dagger into the Night King's gut, shattering all those who had fallen. beneath his baleful visage.

                                                                  Arya struck and seems to have killed the Night's King's terrible visage, and that White Walker's defeat, saving all of humanity.

                                                                  Except not ALL of them fall. The Night Ling has fallen and humanity is now just against Cersei and all of the remaining Lannister's, and gold they they desired, in order to

                                                                  When the Night Kingnis struck down by Arya, and many of not all of the marching army drop at their Leander's destruction but not ALL, we and the characters in the show could SEE that' it's not over.

                                                                  The Night King that Bran has focused what little direct help he's indifferently offered, they have been wrong. The White Walker they have been watching and thinking is their King or whatever because he's gore and

                                                                  And maybe in distance, but in full view or Wjnterfell should they be looking....

                                                                  John and the audience, see The the Night King or Knight King to a gesture and the Dothrake who died because of poor planning, now belong to the Real Night's King, now.

                                                                  Winter has come, and The "crowned White Walker', which Bran the Broken has been following so arduously is yintact himself a Lieutenant to the REAL NiIGHT'S KING.

                                                                  Bran made this error in judgement because his training was incomplete due to this Lieutenant and his forces tracking Bran down to kill him or make his treating imperfect.

                                                                  Mission accomplished. The Broken will need to keep having visions of the past to get the training he needs from either the previous Three-Eyed Crow before he died beneath that Weyr-wood tree, or try to fin another previous Three Eyed Crow to train him.

                                                                  The WhitenWalkers should still be headed south.

Once showrunners cut GRRM source material down to certain storylines/arcs, they had no idea how to continue those characters once original book material ran out. I truly believe they knew they were out of their element (no original writing skill set) so time to wrap up the show and move on. Then the consequence,  the S1-S4 great dialogue ( almost word from word from the books) turned into battle scenes/CGI effects (fan service) and script word count became less and less. Smart characters turned into idiots and went against everything we knew about them. After Hold the door episode, the magical/fantasy feel of the story peaked then disappeared. What was the point of the prophecies, wight walkers, children of the forest, and three eye raven? The story turned into subverting expectations which was, in the end, a ridiculous excuse for "we cannot write meaningful, cohesive dialogue" to continue good character arcs and great storytelling. Lord of the Rings rip-offs, the Mockingjay S8E6 CGI wingspan effect. I don't think D&D really cared about the show, fans, actors, any of it. The word Hubris comes to mind. Oh, yeah and D&D have submitted S8E6 for Emmy consideration for best writing and directing, LMFAO.

But it is not quiet like that he will loose the more he resurrects. It willbe interesting read it though. Also Jon is kind of the Hero of the story and having him die in Dance it is kind of a great let down. And George is not second class writter

                                                                                      Sorry the story didn't end in your cringy fan fiction way, but that's the point of WATCHING a show.
