Why ‘Game of Thrones’ fans aren’t happy with this final season
( CNN) “Game of Thrones” fans are fed up. This final season was supposed to be a climax of splendid storytelling, a period when all the segments in this sprawling, intricate Westeros puzzle ultimately snapped into place.
Last week’s 80-minute episode
made a rapid, dark turn by making longtime heroine Daenerys Targaryen a mad war villain
who abused her lone existing dragon to waste hundreds of thousands of innocent lives.
With one escapade left before the sequence points, that’s a lot for fans to take up. More than a million of them have signed a Change.org application
urging HBO to re-make the final season
