MY REVIEW
The long awaited final season of a series that captured the attention of the world. No matter which house sigil you support, difficult times lie ahead, but perhaps your favorite character will get their happy ending.


The ability to write the closing season of such an epic series would seem to be an insurmountable feat. Yet Game of Thrones is over. This show pulls deeply from our primal drives, it transports you to a life where honor and betrayal go hand in hand with mystique and pain. 

The allegiance fans made with the Houses, we like many others, are House Stark. Each character having such an interesting journey to this final season, and such a long gap between the 7th to the 8th and final season, left ample time for fans to come up with their own ‘perfect’ ending, making the acceptance of conclusion all the more difficult to take in. 



While so many wanted Jon and Dany to rule the iron throne as a couple, it was never in the cards. Their stories are consistent, their goals have been clear; Jon’s honor and loyalty to protecting his family and people has never wavered. He has sacrificed everything for the betterment of the people. His final sacrifice is his greatest, and separates him from the world he loved and protected. 


Where as The Khaleesi has been obsessively driven to reclaim her birthright. It has been her goal, it is not a stretch where the writers ended up with her character. After consistently being under estimated, betrayed and denied. We had hoped the love her and Jon shared would strengthen her resolve and solidify what we wanted, the happily ever after. 


True to the rest of show, what should have come to pass is ripped away as lines of right, wrong, honor and loyalty are blurred. With the clearest view of the corrupt power being destroyed, by the actions of a majestic beast. Humanity survives, our observations of this land end, and an unwritten chapter begins, but the memories of humanity live on. The wheel of oppression has a broken spoke, can the changes that were put in place by the sacrifices of so many great characters change the path to true harmony, or will greed and pursuit of power prevail....


In honor of the final season of Game of Thrones being available for digital download, we are teaming up with HBO to give one lucky winner their own digital download copy of season 8. All you need to do is comment below which House of the Seven Kingdoms is your favorite.
Disclosure: All opinions are my own. I received Game of Thrones season 8 on digital download at no cost for the purpose of this review. No other compensation was received.
