Games of Thrones is nearing its end and while fans are emotional about saying goodbye to the series, that is not stopping them from being outraged at the way things are unfolding in the final season.
A petition on Change.org, which has till now drawn more than 240,000 signatures, is demanding a remake Game of Thrones Season 8 with “competent writers.”
“David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (i.e. the books) to fall back on,” the petition reads. “This series deserves a final season that makes sense. Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!”
A quick search on social media shows that the fans are disappointed with the lighting, poorly conceived character deaths, interactions between characters that didn’t quite land right, and character twists that “seemed like utter betrayals of years’ worth of storytelling.” But the final outrage came after the latest episode, “The Bells.”
However, no matter what viewers have to say, it seems impossible to imagine that HBO would ever remake an entire season, especially considering that this is perhaps the most expensive one in history.
Moreso, it is important to note that HBO network is no stranger to controversial endings so outraged fans are unlikely to worry them. Plus, Game of Thrones continues to break records with its viewership.
