Shock or grief, ‘Game of Thrones’ fans prepare for the final episode
LOS ANGELES: Feelings are running high as Game of Thrones about its final episode this weekend, with hundreds of thousands of sad fans signing an online petition and a counseling service offering to help those grieving the end of the TV fantasy saga.
Around 600,000 fans worldwide had signed a Change.org petition by Thursday criticising Season 8 of the HBO series and calling for a remake.
“This series deserves a final season that makes sense,” said Dylan D, from Texas, who launched the “Remake Game of Thrones Season 8” petition ahead of Sunday’s series finale.
The story of warring families in the fictional kingdom of Westeros has drawn to a close with ever more bloody battles and favourite characters being killed off.
“Season 8 was very disjointed and rushed. Characters were hastily written off and plots became twisted. It was not a good close to a great series!!!,” wrote Marilyn Marnell, one of those signing the petition.
