The much awaited season finale of Game of thrones is here and it has not lived upto the expectations. The entire season 8 seems rushed and the 5th episode is no exception to that.
After all, the reddit leaks of episode 5 &6 proved to be right. All the theories of there being multiple dragons or Rhaegal making it back after the attack from Euron have gone down the drain. Euron was simply looking into the clouds whilst Daenerys is attacking his fleet with drogon hiding behind the clouds.
It was all too easy for Daenerys & Drogon. Without even getting a scratch on their body, they were successful in destroying the entire iron fleet mounted with deadly scorpions. Drogon goes on to destroy scorpions mounted on the walls of kings landing effortlessly. All the while, not a single arrow was shot at Drogon.
The directors have deliberately butchered Daenerys character. Even after the bells rang and the city surrendered, she loses her shit and dracarys the shit out of King’s landing. I guess “Ring the Bells” has the same vibe to the dragon queen as “Burn them all” has for the mad king.
Greyworm is on a killing spree and doesn’t spare the Lannister soldiers who’ve surrendered themselves. He is avenging Missendeis death but went overboard with killing innocents, children and women. The Dothraki goes on to rape helpless women found on the streets. Jon is just reduced to a spectator in the whole fiasco.
They made a mockery of Arya Stark’s character. She travelled all the way from winterfell to King’s Landing all for nothing. After seeing the destruction, it is pretty evident that Arya is going to kill Daenerys for all the lives she took in the destruction of winterfell.
Cersei had an easy ending. For all the things she has done in the series, everyone expected her to have a cruel death but the directors were too kind to her character. Also, the directors have conveniently forgotten all the characters such as Yara Greyjoy whose addition could’ve made a better viewing experience.
Overall, the penultimate episode of Game of thrones is disappointing to the majority of fans.

Game of thrones finale theories & predictions
Episode 6 would just be the finale for namesake as almost everything that’s going to go down in the episode is already leaked. Daenerys will capture the kings landing and Arya stark will kill Danny. This may leave us with Jon snow being the king of the seven kingdoms.
