Stephen King has tweeted his passionate defence of the final season of 'Game of Thrones'
Prolific writing legend Stephen King has launched an impassioned defence of the eighth season Game of Thrones, saying that he's enjoyed the much-maligned final season thus far.
Although the latest episode of the HBO fantasy epic was the most-watched of all time, some of those people were definitely hate-watching. The cinematography and everything was stellar, sure, but there were character moments that were hit and miss.
One character moment, however, had people furious:
King, 71, who has published 58 novels so far in his illustrious writing career so far, says that because of the nature of Game of Thrones as well as the passion and intensity that characterises a lot of its fanbase, it was hard for anybody to be completely satisfied.
"I've loved this last season of GoT, including Dani going bugs**t all over King's Landing. There's been a lot of negativity about the windup, but I think it's just because people don't want ANY ending. But you know what they say: All good things..."
King has tweeted before about Game of Thrones; in fact, he's actually made his own prediction as to how the HBO fantasy epic will end. While some think that Daenerys' burning of King's Landing as her own Old Yeller moment, King thinks it paves the way for a surprise winner to the Game of Thrones:
"Suppose--just suppose, now--that Jon and Dani BOTH died (along with Cersei, of course). Suppose--just suppose--that a certain little man with a big heart ended up sitting on the Iron Throne?"
That's one way of looking at it, Stephen King, and he's written so many books that you'd think he'd know a thing or two about this writing thing. But on the other hand, by his own admission, he's not that good at ending a story...
Here's what we're all waiting for - the final episode of Game of Thrones:
Still, as Game of Thrones hurtles towards the finish line, King's tweet adds yet more more controversy to the show's ending - what's going to happen, folks?
