Am I the only one who is sad that Game of Thrones is ending? In case you’ve been living under a rock, Game of Thrones is an American television series where 5 families compete to see who will sit on the Iron Throne and rule the fictional world of Westeros.
I know I can’t be alone in my feelings. It’s like reading a beautifully written, epic novel that spans generations and that you’ve been reading for ages and finally finish. There’s a bit of a grieving period at the end. Which is funny, seeing that I had ZERO desire to even watch one episode, let alone like 70. I don’t like really like the fantasy genre (dragons, zombies, etc.) and I REALLY don’t like being so mainstream or ‘basic’ as the kids say. But someone in my household convinced me to just try it once, even though he also had previously had no desire, and bam! we were hooked. I had no idea it was such a beautifully written, character-driven show. And the acting and story line drew me right in, not to mention the gorgeous scenery (which became even more stunning as seasons progressed).
The final episode is tonight in the U.S. so I won’t see it for at least a couple of days. I’m still processing Episode 5. I won’t say anything because I really hate spoilers, but it was as intense as expected. I do hope it comes to an end that most people can be satisfied with, if not happy about. As one of the actors reminded viewers in an interview, the world of Westeros isn’t exactly a happy-ending type place. But we wouldn’t want it that way, now would we?
