Game of Thrones fans are torn over last night’s episode, ‘The Bells’

Last night’s Game of Thrones was a doozy. There were crazy moments and closures to many of the characters, and it has created a rift in the fanbase.

Spoilers Ahead for Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 5 “The Bells”

It wasn’t the buildup of “Winter is coming” that is finishing the series, it’s the ultimate showdown to see who’s going to be sitting on the iron thrones. Well, after last night’s episode, is the iron throne still going to be a thing? Dany has laid waste to Kings Landing with help from Drogon, and together they have burned the city to the ground, including the innocent people. She has become the Mad Queen, just like her father, the Mad King. Her actions are a few things that have caused a rift within the Game of Thrones community. On one corner, people didn’t see her turn to the dark side as coming out of the left field. On the other corner, people feel cheated and are fed up with the show’s writing. Together, the fans have expressed their feelings on social media.

Cersei is the villain that people love to hate, so seeing her get her due should be satisfying. However, the cause of her death has been disappointing to some fans.

Fans have also complained about how the writers for Season 8 have butchered the story. One fan was sad about the death of Lord Varys, The Hound, and Jaime Lannister.

There’s an interview with Peter Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister, and people see it as him rehearsing his praise for showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

Mad fans are aplenty.

We have YouTuber YongYea feeling nothing about the characters dying.

Not all fans have been hating on the recent Game of Thrones.

The cinematography was breathtaking.

One image that keeps popping up is the scene where Dany talks about burning cities. So that was definitely foreshadowing that she is capable of doing evil things.

And we got fun posts out of it.

There is one more episode until Game of Thrones is completely finished, which airs on May 19, 2019. Will Jon take over as the ruler? Will Dany meet her end by the hands of Arya? One thing is for sure, the reactions from fans will be entertaining.
