With Game of Thrones coming to a close this coming Sunday night, there's a bit of good news for fans who will be suffering from the dreaded show hole. One week after the series finale, HBO will be airing a two-hour documentary titled Game of Thrones: The Last Watch about the making of the show's final season in the show's regular time slot. Granted, it's not as exciting as, say, a mystery bonus episode or something, but it's better than nothing.
As someone who has never given a shit about this show, I really can't empathize with those fans who are complaining hard about the quality of the episodes in this final season. It's the same thing that happens to any franchise when its creators start making definitive decisions. Choosing to kill a character or keep them alive immediately alienates half the audience as they were likely hoping for the opposite outcome.
In time, everyone comes around to accepting things and understanding that the creators ultimately went in a different direction than their super sweet fan theories. The sooner these fans come to terms with reality, the better off we'll all be.
Game of Thrones: The Last Watch airs next Sunday, May 26, at 8pm.
