Was The Game Of Thrones Finale A Disappointment? (Spoilers Ahead)by

SPOILERS AHEAD: WAS THE GAME OF THRONES FINALE A DISAPPOINTMENT?

The TV event of the year for many viewers has aired – and while it may not be safe enough to venture onto social media and discussion boards again just yet, it does appear that the clouds of spoilers surrounding what was shaping up to be an explosive season finale of Game of Thrones are still reverberating – as complaints and praise seem to be flooding in equally. As always, we mark this point by warning you that spoilers lie ahead.

The final episode of the seventh season of HBO’s high fantasy drama was chock full of tension, the start of several new character arcs and an ice dragon destroying a wall which stood protecting the world against sinister ice zombies for over 8,000 years. If you’re not a fan, it makes sense in context. However, while the episode was high on tension and full of a number of big hallmarks that have made the show truly watchable, many viewers were disappointed that the last episode of the season – ‘The Dragon and The Wolf’ – failed to satisfy on a number of grounds.

There was big satisfaction on the cards as the young Starks finally united to execute the duplicitous Petyr Baelish – who has been arguably the most cunning and one of the most dastardly villains the show has seen since its first season – and whom arguably helped to start the whole mess everyone appears to be in. However, the episode otherwise seemed to confirm suspicions and set things up as opposed to giving fans scores of shock deaths – perhaps we have gotten used to the show freely removing so many beloved characters over the years – and while the pacing and the direction of the episode was incredible, some elements felt a little too predictable.

Regardless, the finale appeared to satisfy many and infuriate others, as we may now have to wait until 2019 for the new season to air – however, if filming reports from certain cast members are to be believed, the final six episodes are set to start shooting this fall. Season seven has been controversial and satisfying – it has moved at a blistering pace, perhaps losing much of the subtlety and tension the show has been known for over the years – but with the final few hours of Westeros upon us, surely nothing but high drama lies ahead for us.
