How Game of Thrones Should Have Ended

  1. Yup totally agree, it would have went better with this story and should have contained more episode after all it's the finale season

  2. I think Jamie should have killed Cersei by crushing her windpipe with his golden hand to align with the witches' prophecy of the Valonqar. Jesus Christ I'm desensitized to violence.

  3. This version sounds way better but my only problem is that if Arya is wearing Jaime’s face that would mean Jaime is dead right?

  4. I would make john and night kings fight more epic, probably other important people come and help him in the fight and some of them die in the fight, but they win finally. And when denny betrays everyone and burns kings landing at the end, I would make john scape with tyrion, and jamie, who will bring cersie with him too and john accepts that, and they all retreat to winterfell and prepare to fight denny and the rest of the world… now you can either make starks barely win, and john somehow killing denny in an epic moment and dies right afterthat to the last dragon. And I would make either bran or tyrion the king. Or the starks come out on top, killing dragons at the start of battle easily, then denny sees her army defeating, and accepts the defeat, and john will be the king, marrying and of course, forgiving denny.

  5. What about "breaking the wheel"? Everything else seemed damn well thought out. But the lil one has a 50/50 chance of becoming mad, thus starting the whole story over

  6. everything was good except that jon should have been the king and arya should have shown her killer skills more….after all that's what we expected from her all over the journey!!

  7. Great!!! I hope David Benioff and D. B. Weiss watch this! I know the cast members are tired, but even if they had to replace them for a reenactment for what you just basically rewrit, there would be millions upon millions who would tune in and watch season 8 – How Game of Thrones Should Have Ended!

  8. Blah, blah, blah… Read the books. "The SOng of Ice and Fire" haven't finished yet. TV series is a shit for people who don't understand books.

  9. Your ending makes the horrible D&D ending look brilliant. Daenerys' arc is that of a ruthless power-hungry throne-obsessed person, which you throw out the window. Everything else is typical Hollywood heavy-handed schlock. The dragon glass immunity leading to tree burning is macguffin nonsense. You took what was wrong with the D&D ending and amplified it. Game of Thrones is not about tying things up in neat little bows and hollywood hero sacrifices in melodramatic scenes. You are also wrong about the greatest threat. It was never the white walkers, it was always the hunger for power and the lengths people would go to become ruler. The wars fought over power killed enough people in a single season to fill every keep on the wall with soldiers. Daenerys exemplifies this, for while she had a kind heart she was ruled by her own ambitions and fanatical belief she was 'entitled' to the iron throne and would burn anyone to ashes who stood in her way.

  10. I got the impression that people like Arya can only wear the face of someone who's dead and had their face cut off. Therefore she couldn't impersonate Jamie. Apart from that, good ideas. Combine it with other Youtubers' improvements to the Winterfell battle plan (soldiers behind the stakes, artillery on the castle ramparts, cavalry used as a reserve) and the internet has outwritten Benihoff & Weiss.

  11. Apart from the fact John wouldn’t die cos Melisandre brought him back wit magic from Essos not from the children of the forest

  12. Dany was never impervious to flames, Targaryens are generally more akin to heat as seen with her hot baths, but the scene you're referring to in the pyre was a result of blood magic.

  13. Honestly I would go all the way back to rewrite season seven. that's where the big problems started taking root. Replace the battle for Casterly rock (doesn't even make sense to go after it other than giving a middle finger to the Lanister family name) And instead just attack King's landing. Spend season 7 wrapping up the Lanister storyline, Dany becomes queen and Jon has to just convince HER alone to help with the white walkers. Cut out all that going beyond the wall to bring back a walker to convince Cercei BS that ultimately led to nothing.
    That frees season 8 up to be MOSTLY about the night king and also see how Dany handles being on the Iron throne and how she acts now that she has what she thinks was her destiny all her life. If they still decide to make her go mad it seems like her struggling with the actual ruling part would be a much better set up than "It's genetics and also killing bad people eventually leads to snapping and killing innocent people even though EVERYONE on this show has done extremely fucked up things with the excuse that it's being done to bad people"

  14. Should’ve been a season of Dany being a Tyrant or a ruler. Or this season should’ve ended with her being revived and opening her eyes just as Jon did and season 9 could be the Revenge.

  15. This ending is much better, thank you! With the clips added in it felt real. I think I'm gonna finish my homework and then read some fanfiction.

  16. I love this especially the night king re write but I think it would be even better if arya used jaimes face to kill cersi and then succeeds then Jaime sees cersi on the ground as she cry’s out for help from him and he leaves her there to die. That way Arya gets to kill the main person on her list and Jaime has the epic character arc he deserved

  17. how do you expect jaime and other supporting charterers to make it to the end if winterfell falls during the fight and danny only takes john and bran on the dragon they would die agents the army of the dead

  18. Why not make a spear from magical tree instead of burning tree or flash to future and new tree grew from old cause its magic

  19. Arya and the hound should've battled the mountain and kill Cersei together the two people that are shity and mad their lives horrible

  20. Or at the very least when Jon kills Dany it could've played out like this🤷🏾‍♂️

    How it could've of ended.
    Upon discovering his Mothers lifeless body.
    Drogon sets his gaze upon her murderer. Teeth bared, chest glowing Drogon engulfs Jon Snow in dragon fire. But this wasn't normal dragon fire this was pure uncaged rage so much that the the flame that he previously spat to level King's landing paled in comparison to the heat and shear volume of this black death that now spewed from his mouth.
    After unleashing his fury he pauses a moment to ensure that he destroyed the one that had slain his mother.
    To his dismay there were no ashy remains no, there only lied a man, a man unburnt at that. But something was different the man was different his hair that was once brown now silver his eyes that were once brown now a bluish purple much like his mother.
    The man says nothing just looks up and stares at Drogon who is stunned at first but readies a second blast until something forcibly compels him to lower his head it was almost as if he was forced into submission.

    Slowly Aegon Targaryen rises.
    In silence turns his gaze to where Danery's body once laid. It is gone without a trace. He then slowly turns and walks to the iron throne he says nothing he only sits in deep thought. Drogon also walks slowly to the iron throne and sits behind it.

    And this is how Grey Worm a group of unsullied and a handful of Dothraki would discover the man formerly know as Jon Snow.

    He and Drogon in silence staring at them studying them
    as if they were deciding if the group of men before them were now friend or foe.

    All hail Aegon Targaryen 8th of his name
    He would later be known as Aegon the undying.

  21. Season 8 – The battle of the Knight King/Winterfell

    Season 9 – The battle of Kings Landing/ Cersei death.

    Season 10 – Dany reign and downfall.

    D&D rushed and did a sloppy job finishing what was an amazing epic story. It still hurts how much they messed it up. I hope they are never allowed to write anything else. For the good of the realm 😉

  22. How is it that one person who have made this video could come up with a better ending then the writers of this famous show?

  23. Great synopsis. I enjoyed this far more than the season but…..Arya could not wear Jaime's face (he would be dead) and then return to take down Cersei.

  24. No, just no, you did a lot of stuff right with this, I’ll give you that, but game of thrones from the beginning to the end is the story of the stark family and you completely disregarded that!

  25. There’s a pretty gaping hole in that Dany can still withstand fire and Arya can still change faces after the weirwood tree and all of the world’s magic is destroyed? (Which even if Arya’s somehow immune she shouldn’t be able to do while Jamie lives.). I would like this ending without the killing of all magic…

  26. This version is amazing it is so beautiful and I could imagine seeing it all oh what could have been thank you for making an alternate ending

  27. My biggest enjoyment out of this (if that's english) is varys doesn't have a reason to stupidly betray dany, he deserves a better death. Plus I imagined in the scene where they discuss burning the main wherewood tree he says "destroying all magic" or something like that with relief, calling back to the wizard dude that cut off varys jr. Maybe have a 4 person sort of duel between varys, qyburn, the hound and yhe mountain where they all die (varys schemes qyburn to death somehow, mountain kills varys for killing his revivor, hound kills both of them similar to the show). Also mellidanre can die actually fulfilling a purpose in giving time for the survivors of winteffell to flee. Bronn can have riverrun, not high garden after threating edwin tully instead of threatening jaime and tyrion maybe guaranteeing them safe passage into kings landing instead. Jaime can stay true to brien, who's ending is made better with your changes. Arya, considering her main motivation is fueled by family just needs to promise to return to make her ending a tad better I reckon. Missandei and grey worm can have a happy ending instead of a forced death and a character dumb down. Gendry would still be hard to fix, but perhaps he could still become Lord of storms end if when they introduced samwells father, they introduced the new Lord of storms end after stannis death, who could be killed off in the final battle and have gendry prove himself worthy to the other clansmen of house Baratheon. Then poor tormund, why did he go beyond the wall afterwards? He was fighting to bring his people beyond the wall where food isn't scarce, pretty simple what to do there. Kinda got carried away spitballing here. AND BRAN!!! Master of whispers? I got you covered my dude. Daario could come back as kingsguard to dany. Yara was done as well as could have been with the episode count except make her an independent state like she and dany agreed on. And last one before I'm done, aryas gonna need a chef on her travels, no? Meat pie anyone? (I think that's his name)

  28. I really liked it, apart from one thing. You have connected Jon’s revival with children of the forest…
    He was resurrected by Melissandre, with help (?) of R’hlor. It seems there are many types of magic in the GoT world, not only children of the forests one.. I love the fact that he will die (D&D) did not have balls to kill of any major character in the last season. Still, a big like from me.

  29. gonna be honest…I would have been happier if they have just had the night king kill everybody and have him sit on the iron throne. It would have been better than the crap they shat out in season 8.

    However I do love your version as well.

  30. I liked most of this but not sure I want to see Jaime kill Cersei. I never saw Cersei as simply an evil character per se. Also Dany supposedly can't bear children and having her have an heir is nice and all but thats a little too storybook for me. Also, I could give two fucks about Ellaria sand. The story shoud have never made her kill Cersei's daughter, Martell was a grown man an volunteered for that task. GOT just wanted more wild and wacky plot TwIsTs so those two things happened which I never agreed with. Just IMO Ellaria breaking out wouldn't add anything to the finales, she's old news by now and I don't see anyone being emotionally invested in her anymore (but I could be wrong). Also not sure how I feel about Jon being killed off, although according to the internal story logic you presented, it seems that it could be plausible. Just not sure I wouldn't want to see him survive, with or without Danaerys by his side, although the way you composed it would indeed make a very impactful scene.
    Overall I appreciated most of your changes though. Nice job. You definitely did a far better job than DnD thats for sure. You have the superior version of the KL and NK battles for sure.

  31. wow I'm not even halfway through this and I'm already very impressed. Find a producer? Oh, and a lot of lawyers and billionaires to help you get the rights…

  32. I don’t get what was wrong it was a season finale and it’s not by Disney not every main character is going to survive

  33. I don’t know why nobody talks about Cersei and Jamies death. THEY. DID. NOT. DESERVE. TO. DIE. LIKE. THAT. It’s was way to easy and too good considering Jamie once said he’d want to die in the hands of the woman that he loved. I wanted to see them suffer, especially Cersei but now that I think about it, Jamie too, I wanted him to pay for what he did to Brienne. What I would have wanted to see is either Aria puting both Cersei and Jamie in chains, the making Jamie watch as she stabs Cersei in the stomach multiple times killing her baby and then slitting her throat while looking down at her and saying “the north remembers” (like she did with walder frey) and then killing Jamie too. Or I would love to Cersei and Jamie as prisoners, and Cersei being executed in front of Jamie. Sansa would behead her saying “the north remembers”( yes I love that phrase way too much and I want to use it everywhere) I would love to have that sort of parallel, Cersei, several years later in Kings Landing being beheaded by Sansa Stark herself, finally getting revenge on her father.
