The nine noble families waged war against each other in the pursuit of grabbing control over the land of Westeros and thus began the Game of Thrones.
An original series for HBO, based on A Song of Ice and Fire book series written by G.R.R Martin, has been a part of every TV conversation for almost a decade.
The show reached its finishing line with a season finale that aired in Spring last year. The finale left a good majority of fans disappointed with how things unfolded in the show.
The disappointing finale of Game of Thrones? (Spoiler alert)
Almost no GOT fan saw it coming. Games of Throne season 8 finale was a roller coaster ride.
Bran at the throne being crowned by Tyrion? It feels like an anti-climax to otherwise a series written with utmost finesse.
Bran probably knew about the killings all along. Daenerys took to the wild world in the abyss by the Drogon. At the same time, Arya is set on the quest of West of Westeros, which saw never witnessed a return by the warriors.
Sansa, in her not so humble abode, being crowned as the Queen of the North, left many fans wanting more than they could imagine.
