At last, after eight years, our watch has ended. And as a Game of Thrones fan from an early period, I am devastated like millions of fans all around.
Game of Thrones premiered on April 17, 2011, on HBO. And ever since then, Television has never been the same.
The fantasy world created by George R.R. Martin on his book “The Song of Ice and Fire” got it’s TV adaptation thanks to writers and producers David Benioff and D. B. Weiss.
And after eight long years, the show ended as the last episode aired on 19th May 2019.
And boy oh boy! It was big.
If you don’t watch the show but are planning to, you might want to skip the article.
But if you don’t care about the series and don’t mind getting spoiled, keep reading.
Fans waited 2 long years to see who sits on the Iron Throne. Will it be Daenerys Targaryen who’s sole mission was to rule the seven kingdoms of Westeros?
Or will it be Jon Snow, the supposed bastard who actually had more claim to the throne?
But when the high lords of the seven kingdoms called “aye” to Bran becoming the King, people just lost it.
And as the makers have already said that the ending of the show would be bitter-sweet, we couldn’t expect Jon Snow or Aegon Targaryen to be the king.
Not after how he put a sword into Dany’s, his one and only love’s heart.
While fans are furious about the whole Season 8, the end of the entire series has made them seek professional help.
As a fan and as a regular watcher of the show, I can tell you for sure that Game of Thrones leaves you emotionally wrecked.
It happened when Ned Stark’s head got cut off on the 1st season. It happened when the entire Stark’s army was brutally murdered on the 3rd season.
The 5th season finale where Jon Snow was stabbed by the entire Night’s Watch men left us weeping for a whole year. Need I continue?
Game of Thrones made us so emotionally attached that knowing it’ll never air again is a hard pill to swallow.
