And the people who made this last season know it. To be clear, they are not entirely in agreement with the critics of the HBO show, they just know that there has been some backtracking. A group of murderers of favorite fans of Game of thrones-Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark), Conleth Hill (Varys), John Bradley (Samwell Tarly), Maisie Williams (Arya Stark), Jacob Anderson (Greyworm), Liam Cunningham (Davos), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jamie Lannister) – He went to Comic-Con International to take a victory tour and make a quick trip. (Creators David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, originally scheduled to appear, canceled two days ago.)
"I do not regret having started the petition," Hill said jokingly when asked when he regretted comments he expressed his own disappointments, referring to the online petition repeat the eighth season of the show. But, I added, "for the record, I loved all my 10 years Game of thrones"Coster-Waldau went further, saying," You look at the number of people who are here, and we're here to thank you for watching us all these years … I think it's the reality (how much people enjoyed the show), rather than media-driven hate. "People applauded.
Reiterating that people did as Game of thrones and thank the fans were common themes during the one hour panel. But it was also obvious that the show left many unanswered questions. Some inconsistencies were recognized and burst out laughing. coffee cups left in their place, while others, like the choice to kill Jamie Lannister with his twin Cersei, were greeted with at least one boo. "Every season, we had huge controversies," acknowledged Coster-Waldau. "This show has gathered so many people, she has watched, loved, it will make you shit whatever happens, because that's the end."
Well, of course. But there were certainly things that the fans wanted to know or grievances that they wanted to express. (In what could have been the best cosplay of all, a person present appeared dressed as a king of the night, supplemented by a dagger in the belly that said "Star Wars" – no doubt a blink of an eye. Look at the fact that Arya Stark had killed this man.Darth Maul-looking-guy in a not-so-different way from the king movement used in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, or the possibility that Benioff and Weiss were distracted by planning Star Wars movies while GoTthe last season. Make your choice.) Still, the audience – and the panelists themselves – will never know if the fans liked them in the end or if they had goals to settle: the cast did not answer the questions . The moderator, James Hibberd of Entertainment Weekly, blamed the lack of audience Q & A on the running panel. The actors saluted the photos and came out of the scene. That was it.
It's a pity. Before starting, the panel was presented as a farewell to the show to its fans. It was a one-sided way of saying goodbye. Maybe one day the stars of Game of thrones will answer questions from fans about the end of their beloved series. Not today.

Like sex, food in George R.R. Martin's universe is a way of laughing at the God with many faces. Yes, winter always comes, but there is cheese to eat, oranges and fish stew to savor with crispy bread. (If you are a dragon, there are sheep to fry.) When food is scarce or unappetizing in this world, you know that the stake could not be higher: at the red wedding, the first hint that something was wrong was coming from the following form: a thin soup of leeks. As Night King approaches in Season 8, nothing is more serious than Winterfell's low granaries.
Now, this is not the king of the night that comes, but the end of Game of thrones himself. For eight long years, we waited for the final to be aired Sunday and it is our job to send it in honey stuffed with fruit from our work. Here we present one last Game of thrones festive menu: eight dishes in hedonistic honor of the eight seasons, with dishes celebrating the most important places of Westeros and Essos. There is nothing in the menu that represents the Citadel because, basically, all Samwell ate there. There is nothing either of the iron islands, because they produce nothing proudly. To honor Theon and Yara, you just have to tear off what's up to you from someone else's plate, enough for your mouth to be filled, so that no one will hear you cry while the credits you arrive.
You can not send Game of thrones Quintessentially Thronesian-free meat, they are cooked in many kingdoms, including Essos. The Dothraki version is of course filled with blood (horse). A big pigeon is the centerpiece of Joffrey and Margaery's wedding at King's Landing. After Arya murdered Walder Frey's sons, she did her best, Mrs. Lovett, and cooked her flesh in one foot that she fed to their father.
If you want to be serious about it, opt for one of the official menu recipes. Game of thrones cooking book, A treat of ice and fire, for which Martin wrote the preface. (It's almost as if I had time to write things!) You can choose from: medieval pork, beef and baconand pigeon's foot, which calls "five pigeons, cleaned and dressed" and which is available only in the recipe book itself. (Enjoy your meal offers a useful alternative recipe subbing in squab.)
I suggest instead of choosing to walk over driving to eat in the dark without silverware. You are like a soldier heading to King's Road to fight. You need something portable and comforting to get through the night. The modern Cornish or Jamaican Beef paste is ideal, but each kitchen has a variety of meat, and they would all: samosas, knishes, empanadas, Piroshki, Xian Bingetc. Pick one and win (or buy) a lot. (I do these, and adding currants.) Make a sauce to soak it in, with hot sauce to extinguish it in. It's the most crucial dish of your party, a pack of butter and fat.
You must have a cheese platter, and this is your chance to greet the world on the other side of the narrow sea, as well as the warm lands of the South Dornish. Spread fresh herbs, rich cheeses, pomegranate seeds, watermelon cubes and olives on your prettiest serving platter. (Extra points for tarnished money.) Cut the crisp bread and claim that it is not the end.
You also need wine. Obviously To drown your sorrows and, like Tyrion, wish on the "god of tits and wine". (The queen's hand may have become stupid, but he drinks anyway.) We can not betray him now.) Choose one orange in contact with the skinlike the sour wines of Dorne; a beautiful red served in a kind of carafe; and a good white juice or grape in the honor of the best Arbor Golds in Westeros. Also think of pouring a hot wine: red, pungent, spicy and full of dried fruit, as the The old bear Jeor Mormont likes it. Take out that instant jar that you said use and fill it with two bottles of red, two cinnamon sticks, a handful of raisins, a few minced oranges, a few cloves, and a few of them. a heap of honey, a tablespoon of fresh ginger, a dash or two of nutmeg, and hey, maybe a little black pepper. You can also add bourbon, cognac or rum. Cheers!
Look, there is probably a lot of good food in the Vale. But the most emblematic is breast milk, breastfed for too long by the little Lord Robin Arryn. Serve a probiotic fermented yogurt drink, as Yakult or kefir shots with lime zest. Your sober guests will appreciate it, at least, and just for fun, ask them how long they have been breastfed.
The land that gave Westeros Lady Catelyn Stark – and took her away – is known for its rivers and fish. You could do a seafood stew of sisterbut it's a bit messy in front of a TV. Instead, prepare anchovies, small white anchovies pickled with vinegar; They will marry well with your olives and your crackers. You can do them yourself or pick them up on any high-end market.
As a Winterfell lady, Sansa is obsessed with filling her granaries. Rightly, the long winter has come and she has mouths to feed (even after the King's raging nights). Honor him with a farro salad with roasted beets, the kind of hearty root vegetable that grows well in cold northern climates.
Do not forget the wisest character ever to have murdered a king, Queen of Thorns, Lady Olena of House Tyrell. In his memory, make an appetizer that contains a lot. Highgarden resembles the central valley of Westeros in California; it's the fertile bread basket that feeds all the other regions. Poached pears wine, a fig tart with blue cheese and honey, should do well. "I always take figs in the middle of the afternoon, they help move the intestines," Lady Olena once said wisely. The ingredients of Arya's favorite pies are also pure gardens: nuts, figs, currants, wine, honey. You can combine your love for two badass women by creating them. Shell out for the fancy ingredients here-remember how much Lady Olenna was offended when Tyrion was not willing to pay for the luxury restoration of Margaery's wedding? Do not offend the queen of thorns. His words (and his goblets) can kill.
Sansa's fixation on dried foods may be practical, but her persistent love is a little more indulgent. In second dessert, make Sansa's favorite food, the dish she and Margaery ate together at King's Landing, when the show was over Average girls genocidal blood bath: lemon cakes. As the books explain, Sansa is obsessed with them because they represent a food that she has never been able to grow (citrus fruits can not grow in the cold). Trader Joe's has frozen bars, if you want to look like the creators of the series and cut corners to come to the inevitable end. This is perhaps the safest way out: a little drunk, a little lazy, looking at a black screen with a belly full of ersatz medieval worm. Hangover is waiting.

But there is hope. Season 8 may have been a roller coaster up to this point, but Game of thrones has a last episode in which he could do everything right. he is possible! This is highly unlikely, but still possible. To this end, WIRED has gathered internal information The Thrones Emily Dreyfuss, Emma Gray Ellis and Peter Rubin, as well as editors Angela Watercutter, Jason Kehe and Andrea Valdez, to talk about what they need in this final episode and answers to their questions in order to feel satisfied with the ultimate conclusion of l & # 39; show.
Emily Dreyfuss: I do not know about you all, but I do not think this last episode can do anything to make me feel fulfilled. What I want is that this series ends at the same pace as the beginning and the middle of this series, a victory that has earned us the field points of the last season was imposed without proper implementation. David Benioff and D. B. Weiss are not going to finish Game of thrones with a time machine that goes back a few years and cancels their seemingly arbitrary decision to quickly end this show in a way that forces complicated characters to act the same way we've never seen before. And frankly, that's the only thing they could do to please me at this point. Without this break in the laws of nature, I'm afraid Jon will kill Dany or Sansa will become queen or anything will not feel right anymore and I'll only do sad that it's overand sad that it ends like this.
Emma Gray Ellis: I saw this dissatisfaction come after the first episode of this season, so I decided to disinvest. I hardly watch the episodes anymore. I sweep Twitter in search of spoilers in order to know when to pay attention and when to leave the disturbing and yet hasty exposure scenes, and the development slide of the character of poor quality (again, rushed). At this point, I see characters like Benioff and Weiss seem to be doing it: like plots, not characters. All I want from the end is that it's logically defensible, which I honestly feel is the best we've been hoping for.
Angela Watercutter: I agree Game of thrones You felt very rushed this season, which is strange, because it seemed that people had been complaining for too long about slowness. I think the main problem is that the show was so good for building characters in the first few seasons, whether they are action people and not words, they feel hollow. Their actions seem less deserved. Yet we are all invested now and we must do it. To this end, there is only one thing that I really Need: I need someone to definitely hold the iron throne when credits arrive on Sunday. This show throws intrigues on the left and right, but it's the one he can not lose. Someone who becomes the new leader of Westeros is the interest of the series; Hell, that's the purpose of the series title. No matter who wins, but as long as it's one, the show will at least not have failed in its primary goal. A low bar, I know, but that's the one I've set.
Ellis: I think the show can not honor most of the goals of his characters, if not their characters. Our elected officials, Jon and Dany, can not finish on the throne. The throne should be held by someone who knows how to play the game, and neither Dany nor Jon do it. In addition, the show has teased Dany's possible madness for seasons, and Jon is a great source of energy for Ned Stark. Sansa is the best player remaining on the board now that Tyrion is mysteriously dense, so she should win.
Andrea Valdez: However, if the audience (with the consultation of George R.R. Martin) wanted to be super-subversive – a primordial approach adopted by GRMM in the writing of his epic and what distinguished it from other fantastic series –nobody I could win the throne. This would be extremely disappointing for everyone, but it might be a lesson that the game of life does not have to be a zero sum game. Dany could direct the southern lands of Westeros from his crazy throne and Sansa could head north, protecting it sensibly and reliably against the winter. Or, if the showrunners wanted to offer more services to Cleganebowl fans, they could pick on other fans: shippers looking for Jon Snow and Sansa Stark. fall in love and rule together.
Dreyfuss: Sansa would NEVER stand against Jon's nonsense.
Peter Rubin: I can not help but notice that nobody mentioned the amazing boy Robin Arryn. It's true that we have not seen the world's oldest breastfeeding since season 6, but if Dany breaks down (more about that in a second) and Jon's down (more about it in a second), and Gendry goes in search of Arya in his new role of Sword Smith 'Lord of Storm's End, the young Sweetrobin might well have a sho-oh, my god, I can not do this anymore. Obviously, it has to be Sansa.
Dreyfuss: Oh my god, Robin Arryn is alive ?! I have completely forgotten that. Now I am angry, the show ends before the murder.
Watercutter: It's hard to say, because I've been encouraging it from the beginning, but I feel that Daenerys could die in the final. After sacking King's Landing in the penultimate episode, she completely missed the movie The Breaker of Chains, Mercy Giver, which she had previously and that she probably should pay for that. In many ways, I feel for her – she seems to have some mental health problems – but I feel that much of Westeros will probably see her as a worse threat than Cersei and try to get rid of her. Some assume it might be Jon who kills her, but I guess Arya. She would do anything for Jon or Sansa, and since she had not performed Cersei, she was in danger of catching Dany. It all seems so tragic to me, even when I type it, but that's what I suppose. Am I wrong?
Ellis: No, I think you're right. If Arya kills Dany (and what the prophecy about green eyes suggests), she serves under Sansa, the story turns sour: a kingdom ruled by two powerful brothers and sisters, one of a cunning political thinker and the other Kingslayer. I think that would satisfy me. Again, this is Game of thrones, so maybe all of this is late.
Jason Kehe: Arya can not do the act! I mean, yes, I certainly agree someone & # 39; a must go all Katniss in Mockingjay and lets fly an arrow directly to the head of the new tyrant-but Arya already stabbed the king of the night. Can they really have the same character kill properly and save the world two big bad guys? Even for a season as unconvincing as this one, it's silly. Again, nobody seems able. Jon is a cat-cat. Tyrion has not been effective for four seasons. Sansa-eh, maybe, but she's pretty slow in all those furs. Well, there is Yara, who better to come back for the final. Maybe she will seduce Dany, in love with them, and then kiss him so sweetly with poisoned lips! That, or Dany, feeling his own madness, self-dracarysis Commit the hari-Drakari, as it was. Whatever happens, I will say this: they still keep us guessing, which is a kind of victory.
Dreyfuss: I totally agree. Arya can not be the double savior of everything. Maybe Dany could die in a tragic dragon fire drool accident. Nobody would see that coming. And it would be strangely in tune with the inappropriate jokes of the show at the wrong times. But honestly, maybe Samwell could kill her? He is prepared to be the Horatio of this story, to live to tell the story; why not plunge also the final dagger? And he has already proven that he can kill the White Walkers even though everyone believes that he is too big to be powerful.
Rubin: The answer, of course, is Hot Pie. The answer to all is Hot Pie. But if Hot Pie can not gallop on a steed with a deadly wand, Arya may not need to be the double savior of her family – she could just be the Redeemer. Of course, it depends on the death of Jon Snow. Nevhewsurper or not, he needs to do some soul-searching vis-à-vis this story of Dany-on-the-throne after the King's Landing massacre, which means that one kind confrontation is inevitable. Jon was lucky with Viserion, but not with Drogon, or even with Dany herself. So, even if it may seem banal if Arya saves Jon, I'd like to see her revenge him. After all, she left King's Landing riding on a pale horse; how could it not pay?
Valdez: For practically every fifth and sixth season, we saw Arya at Braavos, training with faceless men. For me personally, it was a bit of a painful story, but I persevered, thinking it was helpful to help Arya, a girl raised in high society, to become the bold assassin she always aspired to be. And at the end of season 6, it paid off: a few moments of the series were as satisfying as watching Arya take off, saying his name and intent, and methodically slicing Walder Frey's throat, at the same time. 39, like his family. to his mother. Since then, we have seen Arya wearing only one face (Frey's one before poisoning her entire clan). Just one. We know that she travels with a collection of them; Sansa found the bag when Arya returned to Winterfell. And maybe Arya has exhausted others and we just have not seen her. That's why it makes sense to me that the writers finally use Arya's macabre milking trick, allowing him to wear a face to kill one more person. My prediction? She will wear Gray Worm's face to kill Daenerys.
Dreyfuss: This is engineering. But alternatively, she could wear Drogon's face. She will have her body in a big building, but it could work! (Editor's note: it could not work.)
Watercutter: I feel that Arya could also put Tyrion's face to kill Dany. At least then his character would serve a useful purpose this season. (And again, I thought it was tragic.)
Rubin: I was going to propose to him to wear Jon's face. Think about it! But I realized that I had no idea how the faces worked. Can we use the faces of the living? Andrea, I have the impression that you have a copy of what the Westerosi version of Robert's rules of procedure is. Is there a chapter on the Angel of Metamorphous Death protocol?
Valdez: Oh, Peter, there's a ton of discussions about how masks work. I suggest bringing all this back to "magic" and leave it like that.
Valdez: In the threads Game of thrones podcast, Citadel DropoutsSpencer Ackerman, co-facilitator, pointed out early on the importance of Bran's importance as a source of information. Every good military force intelligently uses its intelligence services and, to date, Bran has practically offered no counter intelligence to his allies. And apparently, nobody has exploited his vast reservoir of knowledge about the past and the present. In addition, Bran has her own manikin ride, almost as useful as Arya's face swap technique: Bran can turn into animals (and people!) And control them as she pleases. Why have not we already seen Bran turn into a dragon?
And another thing about Bran's plot, I've spent a disgraceful amount reading Reddit threads on GoT, many of whom theorize about Bran and his relationship with the king of the night. The episode of the Battle of Winterfell seemed to me devoid of the expose, I expected to explain their link, but I accepted it because the goal of these 90 minutes was to bring us to the most epic war scene on the camera. (And now, we know that Bran was not the king of the night.) However, with such a short time, I'm afraid I never know if Bran was the builder (a popular theory) or what it wants say by "three eyes" Raven.
Rubin: Dunno, Bran was overhyped in the 80s, and he is overhyped now. When all the time became a flat circle, the Bran-like-King-Night theories followed one another, I was intrigued, but with Benioff and Weiss (really the Shields and Yarnell of our time, unless the inexplicably popular mime mime) prove themselves all too willing to let the wires hang, my own three-eyed tie has faded quickly. Let him cross in peace an incredibly awkward puberty.
Dreyfuss: Bran's chapters were the most tedious in the books, in my opinion. But they were so numerous that it was a total waste of time to become useless. Martin clearly thought at one point that it was essential. But then again, the series has escaped a lot of important threads in the books – Lady Stoneheart, no matter who, no matter who? – I do not expect the series to give Bran its importance now. The whole series ends on a note as strange as I think it would be all right if Bran was content to slide a little more in the background and go down GoT history as a simple meme.
Watercutter: I miss her, you know?
Everybody: We know
Dreyfuss: What Sansa needs is Varys who could secretly manipulate the background to orchestrate his own ascension to the throne. But since he has the dragon's breath now, I suppose that leaves Tyrion as his puppet. At least, this part was created two episodes ago. Hopefully they'll resurrect Tyrion's ingenuity and activate Sansa's agency long enough to get them to hatch and execute a plan.
Watercutter: That's where my theory of Bran comes in: I hope Tyrion's long conversation with Bran apparently earlier in the season means that Tyrion got some information he could use to help Sansa. But I do not know.
Kehe: In theory, Sansa is the wisest Stark. Smarter than Jon, less impulsive than Arya, more coherent than Bran. She is also a real snooze. She hangs around Winterfell with elaborate furs, staring at the ice while advising the troops to rest. So inspiring! In fact, maybe I'm not facetious. In a show where everyone is getting stupid at the moment, Sansa has kept his head. Delete literally. Not the wild mom's verve, but Catelyn's done slicing the throat, then. Sansa is a pragmatic, a realistic, end-to-end competent. It's refreshing, a breath of winter air. More importantly, she really wants to lead. Unlike Jon, she is comfortable in a position of authority. She is not easily pissed off. What do I want from Sansa in the finale? Be boring, graceful, stoic and kind, watch idiocy and fire in front with serenity. Be sensible in the sea of chaos. And then tell everyone in Westeros to close their eyes if necessary. Good night!
