Now ‘Game of Thrones’ “Fans” Are Demanding HBO Remake Season 8

The more I think about last week’s penultimate episode of Game of Thrones, the more I like it. The entire final season has been kind of rushed and has at times felt more like a montage and less like a television show paying off a long, serialized story. But the twist that Daenerys was actually a bad guy is actually really good story telling. We were supposed to root for her, to practically fall in love with her, to want to name our kids after her, and then, all of a sudden at the last moment, she’s turned out to be worse than the villains we had been hoping she was going to overthrow. It’s a brilliant moment and all the anger and betrayal you felt was exactly what you were supposed to feel.

Of course, some fans are less than pleased about it. They all tend to be thirty-something unmarried women who write for feminist blogs who thought Game of Thrones was a metaphor for how Hillary Clinton should have been president and not just an exploration of how medieval times were shit for everyone who wasn’t a king.

Now Game of Thrones fans upset about this plot point are demanding that HBO remake the entire 8th season of the show to their liking. I’m not sure how, but I’m sure this is something-ist. Remember when people didn’t like The Last Jedi, which was honest to God the second-worst Star Wars movie, just a total shitfest whose only redeeming quality was not having Jar-Jar Binks in it, were sexist? Well, those are the rules now; you don’t like a piece of big-budget corporate entertainment, you’re a bad person. When I decide what -ism this is, I’ll let you know.

Here’s what the dipshit who wrote this idiotic internet petition had to say:

David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (i.e. the books) to fall back on.

This series deserves a final season that makes sense.

Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!

As I’m writing this, a quarter of a million people have signed that petition. All of them are stupid. At least wait until the TV show is actually over, maybe it ends with Lena Dunham descending from the sky and declaring that all bloggers will get a free lifetime supply of white wine. Jezebelle writers would be spraining every joint in their body falling over each other to declare it the greatest show ever if that happened, and then this petition would become sexist.
