    You're correct, it was the wrong choice of words on my part.

    Well, for me Tyrion's was the most entertaining to follow.

    Wonder Arya was really getting boring to follow, i never had much patience for Sansa and Jon, well, he can live the life he wanted i guess so that's something. (as living in the cold with savages was his dream life ^^)

    The true bittersweet ending is Pod going celibate as a member of Bran's Kingsguard.

    Well, I mean, the implication was that she might as well have been on her way. Jon's teeny tiny light bulb started to flicker during the "From Winterfell to Dorne," etc. etc. speech in the name of so-called liberation.

    Wait, is celibacy a prerequisite for the Kingsguard? I know they can't father children or marry, but Jaime and Trant repeatedly had sex. The Night's Watch seems to be waaayyy more defined and stricter about the no sex rule.

    Plus, it'd be a damn shame for Brienne to swear to that oath considering she just discovered sex. Then again, technically she can't father children, either.

    I also imagine Tyrion instituting rule changes since he himself is a heathen.

    So did Jon fulfillthe prince that was promised prophecy or not?

    He gathered everyone to fight the WW to protect the realm and then stabbed Dany to protect the realm

    So... yes? no? a little bit?

    as far as Ellaria

    LOL

    It's a pity they didn't revisit her (though her particular torment may have reduced her to madness, who knows). It kind of left a bitter taste in my mouth that all the acclaim this show received for having strong women in power ended up doing away with all of them except for Sansa. Even though Yara survives, she is pretty much forced under Bran's thumb and doesn't press her independence bargain she had worked out (sort of) with Dany. I mean, I get that Dany was always meant to be the villain (and thus killed) and Cersei had to go, but couldn't they have kept some of the other women around, like Olenna (may she RIP)? The Six Kingdoms has pretty much reverted back to a sausage fest.

    Yeah. It was just in reverse order. He defeated the WW’s then stabbed his Nissa Nissa and then the swords in the Iron Throne glowed red only hear it was an unforging. He saved the realm from Ice and Fire

    I would've said Jon Snow had the best stories from seasons 1-7. Season 8, not so much.
    Maybe the Hound? Tormund? Though they are 2nd and 3rd tier characters, but they remained consistent.

    In the books, the Night's Watch and the Kingsguard share the same vows concerning no marriage and no fathering of children. As far as actually having sex, it's a murky area, but is generally meant to mean "just don't do it." In the books, one of the viewpoint characters is a Kingsguard knight who basically kills himself out of shame for breaking his vows by sexing a Dornish princess. Another story has a Kingsguard knight castrated when it is discovered that he was secretly wed...to three different women at the same time.

    Maybe the show changes the rules under the new order, who can say?

    The writers finally did Tyrion justice after handing the smartest character the show the idiot ball for multiple seasons.

    Kinda pisses me off that they killed Lyanna Mormont. That girl had ballz made of vibranium.

    Greyworn: Quiet traitor! You don’t have the right to speak!

    Tyrion: You’re so right? Just let me pick the king real quick.... Bran!

    Bran: I don’t want it.

    Tyrion: Please

    Bran: Okay but only if you are my hand

    Tyrion: Oh I couldn’t

    Bran: Please

    Tyrion: If you say so my grace.
