    The Lannisters didn't poison Arryn. Lysa did for littlefinger's shake. He was behind everything.

    What did the writer think about:
    "I want to surprise every one so let's give the fans the ending they won't like"
    So he killed the show

    7:44 I’ve heard a lot of people say that the her burning Randyll Tarly and his son was a sign of her going mad but I would disagree. There was nothing wrong with executing them even with fire

    Now, a few mths after the dissapointing ending of the show, the character recaps reminded me why I loved the books and the show in the first place.
    Thank you, Matt

    Cat Stark got all she deserved. Her eldest son would still be alive if she had treated Jon with respect. Instead, she ensured none of her male kids wanted a bastard for their wife to hate. the books anyway.

    Jaime and Cersei didn't poison Jon Arryn; Lysa did.
    Littlefinger didn't kill Joffrey; Lady Olenna did.
    C'mon, Matpat. I expect more from you.

    This is a million times better than how it ended
    seriously it was so disappointing and the final episode was filled with sooo many cringy moments.
    "Lets have democracy" - everyone laughs
    Tyrion's speech about Bran - quite cringe-worthy
    Sansa being Queen in the North - actually that was okay. She deserved to be queen but she just decided to have the north be independent without asking King Bran the Broken
    The Battle of Winterfell
    it was pretty cool in a lot of parts but had horrible battle plans. They immediately sacrificed the Dothraki in a suicide run without effective weapons (Melisandre showed up unannounced they wanted to just send them like that). The catapults were OUTSIDE the walls and The Night King's death was just a waste. They built him up so much only to be killed immediately. Also Theon should've killed him if he must've died in that episode instead of the final like I thought he would've.
    Varys's death was stupid he deserved better

    Um is it really even a theory if in the first 5 minutes and in the title you claim that it should happen but probably won't and also mess up who did what in the series and in the end give a half baked idea with pretty bad evidence that goes against the authors own words saying that he wants something bittersweet?

  • Harmless Panda

    PLEASE!! Do a game of thrones theory about Bran being the real villian of the show. That he saw how things would end and did nothing to stop it because he was evil, and let it all happen to begin with. So he would get the crown.

    Honestly I know the shows over, but I think it would’ve been cool if the white walkers went and brought back all the important characters from past seasons (Joffrey, Bolton, heck even Ned) and made them undead warriors, for once last great battle

    5:30 ... The Lannisters didn't poison the hand of the King, it was Little Finger and the crazy lady from the Vale who poisoned the Hand of the king and made it look like the Lannisters did it.

    The children of the forest aren't innocent either. I feel that they also fall under these rules. They tried to defend "Their" home by creating white walkers creating a war. Twice.
    When bran and them arrived at the 3 eyed raven, they were throwing bombs seemingly at the white walkers, but in reality they were throwing them at brans party because they hate humans. (Ok, I started to watch too much bridge4 on youtube one night.)
    If the last one would have thrown the bomb at bran - in a selfish act like they were doing before, vs blowing herself up with the zombies, it wouldn't have given them enough time to escape. If she would have stayed prideful humans would have died without brans help - which you would think is what she actually wanted, but you know... as humans watching a show where humans want to triumph, it just wont happen. So she sacrificed herself giving up her pride and letting us, the audience have a human victory ending.
    But hey, thats just MY theory. hahahaha. *shrugs* I don't care that much to argue back and forth on this. take it as you will.
