Game of Thrones, possibly the most epic television series ever created, has now finally come to an end.
HBO never wanted to kill the cash cow that came about thanks to George RR. Martin’s wonderful prose, but showrunners David Benioff and D.B Weiss were desperate to move on to other things.
In the final two seasons, it was clear that the writers were looking for a quick escape, and a lot of the storytelling felt forced and rushed.
However, they still deserve credit for delivering a satisfying end to an overall brilliant series.
