Game of Thrones just can’t catch a break this season. Despite last Sunday’s “The Bells” being the most-watched episode of any series in HBO’s history, nobody seems happy. Rotten Tomatoes says it was the worst outing of the entire show, fans are creating petitions to get season 8 remade and now, to make it even worse, the stars are coming out and dissing how bad the final run is.
First, Emilia Clarke said she wasn’t very happy with how her character, Daenerys Targaryen, ends off. Her words? “It f*cked me up.” Now, another star who, despite his size, is a huge part of the GoT universe, has made it pretty clear how he feels about the final season.
When asked how he felt about how the show ends, Peter Dinklage had this to say (skip to the 2:34 mark):
It’s almost as if he HAS to say those kind words. Fortunately for him, he seems to have found a loophole in the part of the contract that states that. He knows he can make whatever facial gestures he wants and while his mouth definitely said one thing, his face had an entirely different statement to make. The eye-roll at the end is the icing on the emotionless cake.
On a side note, if you haven’t heard, some GoT fans suck worse than this season. They’re notorious for leaking spoilers for the episodes well ahead of their airing and if the leaks out there for the final hour are even close to true, we’re about to find out why two of the biggest stars dislike how the last season is going. I’m just going to leave that there.
Spoilers, upset actors and disgruntled fans or not, tell us, are you excited for this Sunday’s final episode of Game of Thrones? Sound off in the usual place below.
