Everyone dies.

I don't watch the show, but I thought it was supposed to be somewhat historically accurate... but now I see that they have dragons flying around? WTH?!

You are confusing Game of Thrones with something else. It is mostly accurate based on the best selling Fantasy Novels by George R.R. Martin. The key there is 'Fantasy'. There is nothing historical about it.... lol.

Considering it is:

a. on HBO

b. Went up against the season 3 finale of The Walking dead

...it did pretty good with the ratings Sunday night. As far as HBO series goes, it currently is the third most watched HBO series of all time... with much room to grow.

Oh, that explains a LOT. I had no idea it was based on novels. Thanks...

And it's got nudity (not that there's anything wrong with that).

Season and series finale left it different than it started. I thought that the whole idea of power's corrupting influence played out in everyone except Dany, until the second to last episode where she murdered king's landing. That was either rushed or inconsistent. Putting together the pieces from there was choppy and rushed too.

Lacking luster in my opinion.

The Ice King was the high point.

The characters were exactly like their story lines. Name one character that was not motivated by their backstory in the end. It was just all rushed is all.

had a hard time with dani and jon. can sort of see how they could possibly get there, but with the cliff note writing instead of full arc, it was out of character to me. so many other issues with the season for me as well. which sucks personally, was such a fanboy. read books 4x through cept for blood and fire cause it was more a history book than novel. watched series 3x through save for this season, only 2x through for it. hopefully grrm finishes writing before he dies and we have the books to look forward to

Spoilers ahead....

I have not read the books so I only know what I saw. Daughter of Mad King goes bat shit crazy on civilians, go figure. She always had that triggered look going, always clinching her teeth. Was just a matter of time before she snapped, surprised it didn't happen earlier. Then a righteous and just dude that grew up watching his righteous and just dad behead criminals his whole life (first episode foreshadowing) decides to do the right thing and kill the crazy bird. He runs off with his wolf to the land that his true love was from. Seemed just about right to me. I must be missing info.
