We’ll never hear the punchline to Tyrion’s favorite but often aborted story of having brought a honeycomb and a jackass to a brothel. And we’ll never know why certain secondary but seemingly potent characters in the early going (like the intriguingly costumed and face-masked Quaithe, among others) were dropped, never to be seen again. The list of apparent plot holes that particularly bedeviled Season 8 grows by the day, in the continuing crescendo of post-GoT trauma, while nearly a million fans, or ex-fans, have signed up for an appeal to have the concluding episodes redone. That’s how much of a global impact has been generated by a phenomenal TV series that had audiences rapt for all of nine years, including a waiting time of over a year before the highly controversial final season unraveled — with countless critics and know-it-alls complaining of how the showrunners appeared to rush towards an ending, at the expense of erstwhile narrative arcs involving … [Read more...] about To each her/his own story of thrones

Well, most of us. Even those who’ll lament the narrative’s end, but will be none the worse for wear and tear through eight seasons (make that nine years). Yeah, like Otso Diretso, plus 1. I can’t watch Episode 3’s original airing this morning, as I'll be involved in another annual ritual involving fiction and poetry.
