good people (except Bronn)

In the long run, I don't think Bronn was ever really that bad.  He did his best when everyone was treating his as a pawn.  Even the brothel thing at the end was likely more to wind up the uptights than anything.

And I just remembered, Brienne getting to finish Jaime's entry was perfection.

Bronn wanted everyone to think he’d do anything if paid enough.  Truth is he wasn’t so bad after all.  I’m kinda surprised he survived.  I also loved the idea of a small council show.  Bronn torments Sam, Brienne punches Bronn in the mouth, Davos says something dripping in sarcasm as Tyrian tries to finish a joke and keep order.

Also love Brienne as commander of the King’s Guard.

I always thought Sophie Turner was a pretty girl.  When did she become such a beautiful young woman?  That last shot of her at her coronation was stunning.  She looked regal.

After at least five years, I think HBO should think about following up on our cast.  Not a full season, maybe a five episode mini series or a few 2.5 hour movies.  Maybe concentrate on one Stark at a time except Jon.  Leave him a mystery.  Maybe even better would be a Tyrian centric movie or mini series where he has to solve a mystery before Westeros falls into chaos.

Loved how Sansa slapped down her uncle.

LOVE the small council and I could probably watch a show based those meetings

HBO's greatest sit com right there.

They surprised me with how many people lived.  I thought for sure this was going to go full Hamlet and everyone would die.  They did kind of have that moment when everyone that could have been king was dead and they picked a name out of a hat more or less after all those years of war.  Bran's ascension did make a kind of sense, which was nice.  I'm also unclear why the Unsullied got a say in much of anything.  Jon's ending was good.  Podrick even got his due!  Season 8 was bumpy, but the article Foley linked was spot on.  And having a semi-happy ending was a swerve in this case.

Drogon (a.k.a. the laziest name for a dragon ever) melting the throne that Daney only got to touch with her fingertips was brilliant.

Yeah, I thought we were in for an epic duel between Jon and Grey Worm. 

Follow ups would be fun.  Sansa as Queen in the North.  Arya wherever sheís going.  King Bran.  A king with no ego or ambition and a small council filled with good people (except Bronn), might be a series of fun HBO movies.  At some point.  Leave Jonís fate a mystery.

Very good finale, though I am surprised Dany didn't have Tyrion executed on the spot after he threw away his badge of office.  Drogon came across as heartbroken, and the absolutely terrifying in his grief.  Not sure why Grey Worm and the Unsullied would get a say with what happened to prisoners if they were just gonna fuck off and leave the continent anyway.  Did they mention what the Dothraki were gonna do?  LOVE the small council and I could probably watch a show based those meetings, as well as Arya's Great Far Western Adventure.

Before the internet breaks, I’d like to go on record and say I’m just fine with this season including the finale.  I’m not even opposed to some follow up movies after a suitable period of time.  I kinda think that might be where they left us on purpose.

There were more survivors than I expected and a somewhat happier ending than I was prepared for.  The whole Bran deal was a nice touch.

I'm in the same place as you. Except I kind of wanted Grey Worm to die. Very Star Trek IV ending for Jon

Itís a ďfan channelĒ exclusive. Meaning itís basically everywhere except Target and Walmart. All online stores, GameStop, and possibly Best Buy.

I got a pre order in over at Hasbro Pulse. There was loose Hulks available on Dorkside, but it was still $50 after shipping. For $10 more I get Wolverine (who Iíll probably sell) and Iíll get them earlier.

is the 80 hulk/wolves a general release or exclusive somewhere? I just saw it for pre-order and heard the latter.
