This is a terrific article that provides a new, scientific perspective on the problems with this last season. A lot of it probably applies to the previous season too.

I'll see you all in three months when you realize all these complaints with season eight have been prevalent for the last several seasons. The show jumped the shark a long time ago, and at least season eight is embracing the fan service.
You don't think I'm going to post here sober, do you?  ???

Just popping by to say I also think this season is horribly rushed and just trying to meet plot-points. Characters have become dumbed down and oversimplified. I knew this a few seasons ago and had stopped caring so much, but at this point I just want to see how it ends.

She mentioned this idea last season I think. After the war was done, she had no place in the world, so she goes off to find a new one. Considering how much travelling she did in the series, its really not that strange.  It would be weirder to me if she just settled down and instantly put her life of revenge aside.

Two more realistic endings for her, starting a company murdering people or smoking pot and playing video games. She is a teenager.

I didn't hate this episode. It was just OK, a little predictable maybe.


So.

Sansa is queen of the north. The only capable monarch in Westeros.

They made Bran the king of the 6 kingdoms? WTF? He knows stories I guess. It qualifies him to be a mediocre librarian. When he ends the show by blowing off a council meeting to warg a dragon I just don't think his heart is in it.

Jon Snow they sent off to the Night's Watch again? Huh? There's no wall. There's no Night King and Wildlings just sort of hang anywhere now. What are they even there for? To fight ManBearPig?

The kingdoms are now being run by the Peter Principle Small Council. None of these people have the qualifications to run a kingdom. Brienne is tall and kills people. She knows nothing about a balanced budget. Braun's only qualification is that he didn't murder Tyrion 2 episodes ago. Sam isn't a maester. He robbed the place and then just dropped out. Ser Davos is barely literate.

The Unsullied go back to Essos.

Oh and there's like 100,000 Dothraki just hanging out without a strong leader in Westeros. They people who only know how to rape and pillage. No one in the show is going to address this point?

BBC dedicated an entire article today to how the wimminz don't get as many speaking lines as the men.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-48335099

Which is probably one of the reasons this series has been such a success.  :-\

The real problem with season 8 is it contained no Emilia Clarke sex scenes, in fact, how good a season was correlates entirely to how many times naked Dany appears in it.

She was only naked a few times I thought. GOTs confirmed as a shit series.

That would be weird, especially if Bran had warged into Drogon at that exact moment. I mean, unless that's his thing.
