For occasion, “The Rains of Castamere,” “Hardhome,” “Battle of the Bastards,” and “The Winds of Winter” all have near-perfect 9.9s, and they’re, objectively talking, in all probability the 4 greatest episodes of Game of Thrones. Meanwhile, there are solely two episodes beneath a 6: season eight’s “The Last of the Starks” (5.9) and the ultimate episode of the collection, “The Iron Throne” (4.6). To name the response to the Thrones finale “polarizing” could be an understatement, though Carice van Houten believes “some people” have been/nonetheless are being “ungrateful” for questioning David Benioff and D.B. Weiss’ imaginative and prescient.
“The fact that some people were so disappointed is because everything before that was so good,” the actress, who performed Melisandre, advised Insider. “So it feels a bit ungrateful. You’ve had such great times and then yeah, you’re going to be disappointed because it’s not going to go exactly how you anticipated. Of course, you’re going to have all sorts of criticisms and I just thought it was a sign of how good the show was.”
At least now we all know who responsible for season eight.
