Its true, bran was always the best to lead, dude is basically build for it.
The dragon lady was going down in flames anyway, for the simple fact it was foreshadowed already multiple times. She can't rule for shit and everybody hates her at the end.
John snow being the assassin was kinda shit, dude had to die already ages ago but they kept him alive for the simple fact he was populaire. That little assassin god mode chick should have stabbed her at the end pretending to be her brother/father or whatever.
Ice king dying by the assassin chick was also solid, only the way the fight was done and it ended so rapidly instead of dragging it forwards for a season was just stupid. Most of the last seasons was like doing nothing, then fast forwards ultra speed mode, just badly directed and made.
Honestly the end is solid and exactly what u would want it to be. The execution was just garbage.
Yeah, Danerys was always kind of a bitch. Her turn didn't surprise me like a lot of people. Agreed on the Jon Snow being the assassin as well, Arya would have been the better choice then Jon could have fought the Night King.
There is a something called a “Great Other” (or something like that, because damn how long has it been since I read these books?) which I thought was sorta supposed to be what the Night King was in the show. But who knows at this point. I’ll probably need to be content to know essentially how everything ends, regardless of how poorly the showrunners rushed the job.
I did see a rumor that Rothfuss was maybe getting close to finishing the final Kingkiller Chronicle but we’ll all probably be dead by then too.
God, I read The Name of the Wind in 2010 and then A Wise Man's Fear was released in 2011. It was great! Now I've been waiting 11 years for the story to finish. It seems some authors just can't come up with satisfying endings and sit on it until they think they get it right. That's something I give Brandon Sanderson a lot of credit for, he has no issue getting his books out.
