The final season of Game of Thrones has confused and upset many, particularly after Sunday's grand finale.
With such great candidates, no one expected to see Bran Stark claim the iron throne. Unlike the others, Bran has done nothing to prove his worthiness, and the apparent "messages" behind Bran's win are just plain wrong.
Viewers are also upset with Daenerys' fate. First, she went mad with power, then she was killed - by Jon Snow of all people. However, Emilia Clarke has shared her thoughts on it and admitted that it was "logical."
And one scene, in particular, proves it.
The "dragon wings" scene made a lasting impression on the viewers; some believed that it was a cinematographic masterpiece, others thought that it was nothing more than good CGI work. But no one could deny that the meaning behind it was much more powerful.
It wasn't as simple as "she's the mother of dragons." Someone pointed out that it's actually a beautiful, yet sad conclusion to Daenerys' story.
GoT fans were left quite unhappy with the show’s final episode.PopBuzz says.
For ten years, fans have been dying to know who would be the one to sit on the throne.
At the beginning of season 8, all of these were potential winners.
But it was Bran who came out victorious.
This is how viewers are reacting.
So Bran gets to be king, despite the fact that he just put his name on the group project and didn’t do any work. #DemThrones— Jemele Hill (@Jemele Hill)1558319575.0
Others suggested that Tyrion's reasoning isn't reasonable at all.

The other thing that GoT fans were not going to accept was Daenerys’ sudden madness and her heartbreaking end.
Jon did try to convince her that cold-blooded murder wasn't going to help her case.
So Jon did what he had to do.
Actress, Emilia Clarke, has recently talked to The Independent about how Daenerys' fate made her feel.admitted. "What I was taught at drama school [was] that your character is right. Your character makes a choice and you need to be right with that."
"An actor should never be afraid to look ugly."
"I tried to think what the ending will be," Clarke added.
Clarke said that she felt that Daenerys was "very taken care of… it’s a very beautiful and touching ending."
"You have to agree with your character. If you don’t agree with your character, then you shouldn’t take the job."
"I don’t enjoy fans calling me ‘the Mad Queen,'" Clarke said.
"I wanted Daenerys to be there."
It will be this epic scene:
shot is brilliant and should be shown in any film study class #GameofThrones https://t.co/5zcabOo6CS— luay (@luay)1558330538.0
After causing so much destruction and death, the Queen made a speech to her remaining soldiers.
Fans may be angry with her descent to the dark side.
The scene was so well-done that it's even inspired a new meme.PopBuzz says.
Particularly from season 8 and its finale.
Daenerys' wings inspired the "film studies" meme.Someone tweeted a screenshot of the Queen's moment, saying, "Shot is brilliant and should be shown in any film study class."
But not everyone was so hyped about it.
