SPOILER ALERT: CONTAINS GAME OF THRONES SPOILERS. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!
Every now and then, I write a personal blog as opposed to the daily articles I write in my career. As I walked past my new hip flask an hour ago (pictured), I was reminded that we’re about to witness the conclusion to one of the greatest stories ever told, and with that in mind, here’s a quick scribble about the show.
I love to analyse other stories as a writer, and Game of Thrones has been fantastic to watch unfold, and I have all the books. Perhaps an unpopular opinion here, but the penultimate episode of the final season that has drawn criticism far and wide is exactly what we needed to see in my view. From a writer’s perspective, the tyrannical destruction of Kings Landing, and the assumed deaths of thousands of ‘innocent’ people, was precisely in keeping with the show’s design.
And we shouldn’t have been surprised to have seen it either.
