Game of thrones 8 - Arya kills the Night King

An Ode on the end of “Game of Thrones”

Tonight is the final episode of “Game of Thrones” season 8. It is hard to believe our beloved fantasy series ends tonight. “Game of Thrones” season 8 certainly been a flash in the pan. But the entire series has been quite a ride.

“Game of Thrones” has made us feel every emotion known to mankind – love, sadness, fear, anger, hate, disgust, pride; you name it! We have also learnt about honour and loyalty.

The reasons why we this series are too numerous to mention. Unpredictability, the fantastic dialogue, great cast, story and character arcs, production values and more made us cult followers. .

While “Game of Thrones” season 8 has letdown some fans. We love that it stayed true to its formula of unpredictability. And as it ends tonight, I ask, ‘which other series will give fans so much joy?’

We had written a recap of our ‘Top 10 Game of Thrones” episode before the start of season eight. Episodes two titled, “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms” and three, “The Long Night,” also know as “The Battle of Winter” will certainly make our list of favourites. When faced with a dire situation, we will remember to say ‘NOT TODAY.'”

Oh how we will miss “Game Of Thrones?”

‘No one’ knows what the series finale holds. As a matter of fact, we wouldn’t be surprised if ‘no one’ sits on the Iron Throne following the devastation caused by Daenerys Targaryen in the last episode, “The Bells.” Assuredly, we wait with great anticipation.

Whatever the case, salute to HBO, George R.R Martin whose books inspired the series, the show runners David Benioff and D.B Weiss, the amazing cast and everyone behind the scenes who made “Game of Thrones” possible. 

HBO will be releasing a documentary on the making of season eight. It is titled the “Last Watch.” We look forward to seeing it on DStv.
