About This Quiz
Spoilers ahead! But honestly, if you haven't seen "Game of Thrones" season eight yet, or GoT at all, what are you doing with your life? It became a thing not to watch the show because it made people feel cool or different, but those people missed out on something really special. For all eight seasons, there were high highs and even lower lows. When it was announced that there would only be 13 episodes between the last two seasons, fans were shaken. How could they possibly wrap up the show in just 13 episodes? Well, they definitely did it, but not all fans were happy.
The most common comments on the final season were that it felt rushed and not thought out. The Starbucks cup left in one scene and a water bottle left in another didn't help. But you can't say that storylines weren't wrapped up and characters didn't meet their end. Whether or not it was the end they should have met is still up for debate. We want to hear all about your season eight "Game of Thrones" opinions. The good, the bad and the ugly. Do that for us, and we'll guess how you actually wanted the show to end!

It was exactly as it should have been.
She should have killed him while she had the chance.
Knowing how it all ended, I thought it was done right.
Should Sansa and Daenerys have supported each other as women in power?
There should have been mutual respect there.
Sansa doesn't blindly support anyone.
Sansa is too loyal to the North for outsiders.

I definitely got misty eyed.
She just deserved it so much *crying emoji*

I was literally on the edge of my seat.
I had been waiting for that moment for like, five years.
Did you cheer when you thought Lyanna was dead, but then she made sure to stab the Giant right in the eye before taking her final breath?
Lyanna was such a sleeper character.
That was one of the best moments of the whole show.
She would have grown up to be Queen.
A bit unrealistic, but I got it.
The Internet predicted a lot of moments from the final season, but how did you react when the skeletons in the crypt rose from the dead?
I knew nothing bad would happen.
It was a good cinematic moment for sure.
It seemed a little silly.
How frustrating was it when the Night King survived the fire blast?

He would never go down that easy.
Melisandre came in so clutch in the final season. Did her actions change your overall view of her?
She really took one for the team.
It was her purpose all along.

I thought they'd drag out his death until the end.
How hard was it for you to watch Missandei being beheaded?
I really didn't see it coming.
There was a lot of intimacy this season, between Brienne and Jaime and Arya and Gendry. Did you support those couplings?
The Arya one made me uncomfortable.

It seemed like they did it for shock value.
I didn't know who his character really was, to be honest.
Did Jon make the right decision telling Dany about his true identity?
I think he should have kept it to himself.
He did what he thought was right.
When Dany was on Drogon at King's Landing, did you really think she'd burn them all?

Was the Cleganebowl necessary?
I think they did just to please people.
I hope that's not in the books.
Even if she didn't meet the death she should have, how relieved were you when Cersei was gone for good?
She deserved so much worse.

I needed it more than they did.
When Drogon was burning the entire town including women and children, did you have to cover your eyes?
I couldn't handle it but I had to see what happened.
Jon eventually got exiled back to the Night's Watch after killing Dany. Was that fair?
It's where he always felt connected to.
Absolutely not! He was the rightful heir to the throne!
People have done way worse and still gotten exactly what they wanted.
Nothing in that show was fair.
It seemed odd that Winterfell just gets to be sovereign and not a part of the Seven Kingdoms. Do you wish that was explored for longer than two seconds?
It was out of the left field for sure.
That scene made no sense.
I have no idea why they threw that in there.
That moment when the crown was put on Sansa's head was a win for the Starks. What did you feel in that moment?
That family deserves to be happy.

It was rushed, but overall I enjoyed it.
Parts were really good, others weren't.
I'm still mad about Cersei's death.
They should have stopped while they were ahead.
