Fans of HBO’s Game of Thrones were devastated when the show ended this Monday after a tenure of almost a decade. Featuring incredible character development, mind-blowing music and the best cinematography in the history of television, the show was certainly an iconic chapter in the entertainment industry.
But now that it is all over, here is an assessment of every season of Game of Thrones.
Game of Thrones Season 8 and 7 mixed bags
GOT season 8 is facing criticism right now for its lack of character development and paced storytelling, but chances are that it will not be remembered negatively in a few years as it had some golden moments. The knighting of Brienne and Arya and Hound’s last few moments are just a few to name.
Game of Thrones season 7 was the first one that did not have 10 episodes and it felt like a mixed bag. There were certainly good moments but they were overshadowed by the bad ones. Season 6 of Game of Thrones was largely forgettable as nothing happened beyond the resurrection of Jon Snow.
Best seasons from 1 to 5
Season 5 had some of the best episodes. Majority of the fans rank Hardhome as the peak moment of the entire show. Season 4 showed the pinnacle of entertainment with its slow and insidious development that seemed to hook fans and reveal plotlines unexpectedly.
Season 1 to season 3 of the show were probably the best first few seasons of a television show in the history of the silver screen. Who can forget the unexpected beheading of Ned Stark that initially gave the show its massive audience?
Hardcore fans of the Game of Thrones are definitely going to miss it.
