Even if you don't watch Game of Thrones, you probably know at least something about it from the thousands of memes, articles, and rants on social media. And you're probably aware that since the final season aired back in April, many fans of the show are quite unhappy with what they've been given. Especially after 2 years of waiting since there was a longer-than-usual break between season 7 and 8.

And according to many who watched the show, there are more than enough reasons to be upset (spoilers ahead!). The most criticized aspect of the final season is the writing with fans tearing apart nonsensical plot-points and skewed character development. From short, strongly-worded rants to full paragraphs detailing every single flaw, the fans of the show took to social media to make their stance clear. So scroll down to read what people had to say and don't forget to comment with your own opinion!

I am surprised they didn't show her eating ice cream straight from the container.

Most of the people are upset about two main characters, or their characters arcs to be exact. One of them is Jaime Lannister, the Kingslayer, who spent most of the 8 seasons on a personal journey towards (or seemingly, away from) redemption. Many fans were outraged by the fact that the man who gave away his honor by murdering the one he was supposed to protect to save millions of people, in the end turned to say that he never cared about innocent lives.

Ok, does that make me a bad person for wishing Cersei a horrible death or is just that GoT writers did lead me to believe she deserved a cruel demise given her evil ways??? Because rocks.... I mean.... rocks....

One of the biggest plot turns and another source of fan outrage was the way the show-runners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss handled the Dragon Queen's character arc. Daenerys Targaryen was a character who spent 7 seasons coming into her own right after being sold like a slave by her own brother, who fought for the lives of innocents, ended up doing a complete 180 in a span of a few episodes. Instead of accepting the city's surrender just after a little more than 7 minutes of her attack, Dany decided to 'make it personal' and burn thousands of civilians alive by dragon fire.

If the social media posts and memes aren't enough of an indicator that the show is going down a pretty dark path, then the ratings can confirm that. While season 8 episodes have more viewers than any other season before, the (usually high) ratings started plummeting as soon as the episode 3 rolled out. The latest ep "The Bells" has a rating of 6.8 on IMDB, just a slight rise from the previous episode's 6.6 which was also the series lowest rating ever. If that isn't telling of the reception of the final season, then we're not sure what else could be.

I would have liked to have seen an update on her torturing, though. That was one of the few times - perhaps the only time - I cheered Cersei.

This. So many series I watched, from early childhood cartoons to modern real life actor shows, did this. Just throw in some surprising plot twist/change of character to keep things ‚interesting‘, even if it makes no sense at all. So many shows were ruined by this.

Agreed! GoT broke my heart in S8 E5. Seven + years only to see the heroine (aka "Mhysa") turn into a monster. I wasn't expecting a story-book ending (although I would have enjoyed one), but I was hoping - and wanting - to see Dany and Jon both take the throne together.

Dany said she couldn't have kids and Jon asked her if she's ever really tried. That seemed a very subtle hint of foreshadowing that was clearly f*cking pointless.

You watch for years hoping when her time comes it will be cruel and satisfying. Then you blink and miss it, you wind back and can't believe the bloody plot twisting cruel ends GoT is known for just dropped some rocks on her head like the plot from a Road Runner cartoon.
