The final series of the most epic show that our TV screens have ever seen has just come to an end. Game of Thrones has averaged over 44 million viewers per episode and it has without a doubt been one of the most visually stunning shows ever made. And it should be; each episode cost at least $15 million each!
Yet despite the enormous budget, this final series was the culmination of a decade of questions for viewers, and it was always going to be impossible to please everyone. As a result, the final series has come under immense scrutiny. From leaving modern-day props on set to suggesting that Danaerys just forgot about the iron fleet, there have been a number of fails in this final season.
Luckily for you, we have culminated the best fails and memes all into one article. You're welcome.
People have been pretty scathing about the final season.

What happened to Daenerys when she heard the bells?It's most likely that Dany realized that she had won, but didn't feel the happiness that a lifetime of struggle was supposed to be worth. This was the culmination of all her efforts, but it wasn't enough. Either that or she just really hated those bells because of what they signified to Cersei…
Jamie had a change of heart.Jamie had one of the most interesting plot arcs in the series. It seemed like he really was a nice guy, and had done everything for the right reasons. But, ultimately, his incestuous love for his sister was too strong to deny.
Does Sansa know her position?Sansa was keen to keep the North separate to the rest of the kingdoms, which seems like a great option for her. The only problem is that Bran is also the heir to Winterfell. We're guessing they're going to sort that one out between themselves.
Euron's arrival was bizarre.Euron Greyjoy, appearing at the shore at the exact moment that Jamie Lannister was there was a little too convenient. But what was more laughable was that Euron both forgot that he was the only person to have killed a dragon, and also hadn't killed Jamie. Maybe that's sort of the point though. He was deluded and clueless from start to finish.
The horse made for a poignant, but confusing, scene.

Did you spot the hand?You would think that a man whose character has only one hand would remember to wear the golden hand for all his scenes. Yet, somehow, he was filmed with a regular hand for much of his last, incredibly emotional, scene. And that's not the only error.

How about a bottle of water?From the behind-the-scenes pics that we have seen, it looks like it was very hot while the GoT cast were filming this scene. Arya was spotted in sunglasses and Bran and Sansa both got their legs out from under their cloaks. But surely there's no need to keep a water bottle on set with you... Now let's take a look at some of the best memes that sum up some of the most confusing moments in the final season of GoT.
Some moments in episode three were hard to see.

The final series had a lot of tying up to do.

There was no need for this.Some things are just too cliché. And there was no need for Sam to say that the book was called A Song of Ice and Fire. We could have all guessed, rather than gagged. Cringe.
Has anyone kept their HBO subscription?

@Maisie_Williams wtf was this scene for Maisie? 😂 https://t.co/GaexitK5xN— Heavenly 👑 (@Heavenly 👑)1558348698.0
GoT is all about the hidden symbolism.As Daenerys emerged from her victory, she was wearing black instead of white for the first time. Her hair was almost entirely braided, to depict all the battles that she had won. And then it showed her with dragon wings. Did anyone miss that she had plunged into madness and there was no saving her?
Drogon missed the point.

Can you imagine what Yara must have been thinking when Sansa spoke?

Jon must have just wanted to go back up to the watch.
