The Final Season Of 'Game Of Thrones' Is One Of The Worst Written In Television History

Warning: There will be spoilers for the final season of "Game of Thrones" in this article.

If you've been on the internet for more than two seconds, there is a good chance that you've seen fans' reactions to the final season of "Game of Thrones." In fact, some of you may be pretty sick of hearing it. But since there are no more episodes coming out, you'll probably never have to hear about it again, so I'm going to get out one more rant for old time's sake.

Now bear with me as I talk trash about this show.

The final season of "Game of Thrones" was so poorly written, it is honestly insulting to everyone who watches the show and most importantly, to all of the people on and off set who put so much hard work into the show. In the span of only a few episodes, D&D (the writers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss) managed to contradict everything that happened in all the previous seasons, as well as take entire character arcs and just throw them out the window.

The finale episode is the most half-assed conclusion I have ever seen written.

Jon having to kill Daenerys? Predicable and boring. And don't even get me started on them picking Bran to be the king. Why would anyone think that was a good idea? He himself said he couldn't be a Lord of anything because he is The Three Eyed Raven. He doesn't even have emotions anymore. What about that qualifies him to be a good king? Because he can see the past? Just read one of the books in the library if you are so concerned about remembering the past. Of all the people that could've sat on that throne and that's the decision you make? What was the point of bringing up that Jon was a Targaryen if they weren't going to use the plot line at all?

Nothing felt satisfying about the last episode whatsoever.

Having Cersei be killed by a bunch of rocks when literally everyone in Westeros wanted to kill her? Disappointing. The fact that they finally decided to give Jaime his rightful character development, but then promptly throw it right back in the garbage by making him run straight back to Cersei was ridiculous.

Everything about the final episode is just inexcusable, especially considering all the work the costume designers, set designers, stunt choreographers, cinematographers, actors, visual effects artists, and many more put into making this show so innovative and visual appealing. It's honestly an insult to them and soils the memory of a once-amazing show.

Farewell, "Game of Thrones." It's unfortunate that you ended so horribly, but I respect everyone involved for making such a great show for seven seasons. (We'll just forget the last one happened).

I began suffering the symptoms of PCOS — acne, fatigue, weight gain, and an irregular cycle — when I was about 16, but I wasn't diagnosed until about nine years later.

The symptoms were, of course, frustrating, but I am now thankful for all of the time I spent trying to manage them naturally with my diet, herbs, and vitamins. Now that I am diagnosed, I do take a small dose of prescribed spironolactone which has helped immensely, mostly with my skin.

I'm not one to talk about personal issues, like the first-hand misogyny I experience as a woman, usually because it makes close family and friends uncomfortable. However, I have recently become exhausted with the number of comments I get, so I decided to rate all the ones I received in the past month to prove that misogyny is alive and real.

With the pandemic, so many of my friends and I discussed how it was hard to find new things for date night when so many places were closed. It seems like date nights were just endless nights of bingeing Netflix and stuffing my face with Halo Top and SmartSweets. I tried those other date night ideas like cooking together and playing cards. But even those things can get old after a while. Finally, I had it and decided we need to make date nights COUNT again, even if we had to social distance.

Here are 5 different and unique ways you can spice up date night with your partners.

- Since my late teens, I have had wavy, unruly hair that is susceptible to frizz from heat damage.

- I've made a conscious effort to try and eliminate heat styling products from my hair regimen in order to do less damage in the form of split ends and hair loss.

- When I first tried Tineco's MODA ONE Smart Ionic Hair Dryer, I was immediately amazed by how quickly it dried my thick strands and how straight/sleek my hair was with minimal work.

Up to my late teen years, my thick, soft, silky straight hair was the envy of nearly everyone I encountered. I totally took it for granted till my hair began to evolve into being more wavy and unruly with random patches of wavy and straight hair.
