Game Of Thrones Fans Start Petition To Get Season Eight Rewritten
Game of Thrones season 8, episode 5, The Bells, spoilers lie ahead. Be careful.
With only one episode left before HBO's Game of Thrones reaches its final instalment, there are loads of people dreading it - but for very different reasons.
Dany's abrupt character turn has got everyone talking, but the problem is, opinion is completely split. Half of us think it was a great penultimate episode and can't wait for more, and the other half were feeling horribly disappointed.
Some have even gone far enough to say that it has ruined the show for them. It's royally pissed fans off that much that they're asking for the whole of season eight to be remade, and there's even a change.org petition to support it.
A very passionate fan called Dylan D is asking HBO to remake the entire season 'with competent writers' instead of Thrones show runners (and future Star Wars bosses) David Benioff and D. B. Weiss.
They made her worst fear come true, the worst possible ending for one of the shows most beloved and iconic characters. They made her the abusive father she's tried so fucking hard to not be her entire life. Fucking terrible. Absolute trash. You deserved better. #GameofThrones pic.twitter.com/9rUq9iMdQ4

The caption for the petition reads: "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."
He continues: "This series deserves a final season that makes sense. Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!"
I mean, let's be honest. This isn't going to happen is it. Let's look at the facts of the situation.
Firstly, HBO have spent a SHIT LOAD of money on this season - and by that I mean $90 million. That is $15 million per episode. And imagine paying the cast again? Where would that money come from?
And aside, from that, even if it did so happen that by some weird stroke of luck they decided to just scrap the whole thing and remake it - people would still find something to be pissed off about.
One thing is for certain, whether you like it or not, Daenerys Targaryen still has a massive role to play.
After all, it was her who heard the bells of King's Landing toll in surrender but decided to go nuclear all over the capital regardless, raining down dragonfire from the skies.
So do you think we were ready for this heel turn into the Mad Queen? Everyone has an opinion. If you're still reeling from Dany's actions and want to support the cause, you can sign the petition here - although you must be aware it's completely pointless.
Game of Thrones concludes on Sky Atlantic at 2am on Monday 20 May, then repeats in the UK and Ireland at 9pm that same day.
