According to the cast we shouldn’t criticise
Sophie Turner, Kit Harrington and Jacob Anderson have all come out saying that the crew, actors and writers put a lot of effort into the final season and fans more or less can get fucked and need to grow up.
I think they’re severely missing where the criticism directed by fans is coming from.
It’s coming from fans who have watched characters written in a certain way for 7 seasons, then for them to be written in a manner inconsistent with the previous 7 seasons. The writing was incoherent and flat out poor in parts.
Fans are hardly coming at the actors and crew for not putting in the work. It’s more of a writing issue which is a more than valid criticism.
