Game of Thrones might be the most famous show on the planet, this however, doesn’t mean that it has escaped the ire of citizens of the internet.
Almost 440,000 people so far have signed a petition demanding that the 8th season of the show be remade following disappointment at how the season has panned out so far.
A lot of people had reactions to the 5th and penultimate episode of Game of Thrones, many of them negative as people complained about the character arc of Daenerys who destroyed the entire King’s Landing.
Many felt that it was a waste of character after building Dany up to be the ultimate protagonist of Game of Thrones.
People also had problems with the death of Jaime, especially his decisions near the end. Many hoped that Jaime would kill Cersei, i mean, they are one of the worst couples on the show, and what happened instead was a touching scene in which we saw the humanity of Cersei in her final moments.
The petition itself read: “showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (i.e. the books) to fall back on,. This series deserves a final season that makes sense. Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!”
The aim of the petition is to reach 500k signatures and it could very well reach that goal.
Will this make a change?
While people are complaining about the quality of the final season of Game of Thrones, the numbers speak for themselves with the show still drawing in about an average of 43 million viewers per episode.
With the amount of hype that Game of Thrones garners, it was always likely that the final season would be controversial mostly due to the sheer level of expectation that is on the show.
The finale will air on Sunday, 19th of May, 2019.
What do you think? Are you signing the petition or not?
