    Yep. I know in the summer, my fingers can swell up in the Phoenix heat and make my wedding ring uncomfortable. It was only prudent for a man facing dragon fire to consider the discomfort his fingers might feel if he didn't remove them before being roasted. :)

    Varys is very smart. Metal conducts heat and he didn't want those tender spots in his fingers to be uncomfortable during his execution.

    People have started a petition for HBO to remake the final season, which I think is a bit much, but they've managed to get over 735k signatures so far. When I learned of it today/Thursday afternoon it had just passed 650k.

    I can understand why some people are disappointed but I think it's a bit ridiculous to call for a remake. If people are disappointed with how it's being told now then they won't be happy with how a remake would play out because the ending will be known. They could create a new ending but following how Martin is planning things is the only logical solution. They could have taken their time and done a lot of things better, which was assumed to be happening with the year and a half delay, but we got a show that feels rushed.

    While I didn't care for a lot of things in the last episode I'm not down on the season as a whole. It seemed like a lot of people were happy with the first 3 episodes, it was when not enough people died that the tide started to turn.

    I'd be curious to find out how many people that signed this actually pay for HBO. Game of Thrones has been the most pirated television show since it was started and that hasn't changed. I remember hearing something like each episode from season 6 or 7 had 70 million illegal downloads worldwide, on average, and I doubt that has gone down substantially.

    Really not looking forward to any of the spin offs after how the show turned the further away if got from the source material.

    I liked the ending.

    It was going to be anti-climatic any way you did it

    Me too I liked it... anti climactic other then Dany being killed. But you can’t please everyone. Never gonna happen.

    Love that a Stark is in power in both kingdoms. Love that John said eff your punishment and went to live with the wildlings.

    So this leaves stuff wide open if they want to go back.

    I hope people see Dany's turn a bit clearer now. If they weren't on board with her heading that way prior to her destorying King's Landing then this episode should have cleared that up. She was on this path for a while. Of course they could have told the story a little better but I thought her turn to the "Mad Queen" was done well. I wasn't expecting her to rule or to share power with Jon. She became blood thirsty and despite getting the crown she wasn't finished and never would be.

    This season wasn't great by any means but I honestly enjoyed it. Maybe not the ending I would have went with but I like it and was satisfied enough with it.
