The Iron Throne: What is it like?


Although the first two episodes of game of thrones got a good response as the story moved on, the last four episodes got some criticism. Although the iron throne did not get good reviews, it was the most viewed episode with 19.3 million people watching it. It also became the most-watched episode of any HBO show.  The iron throne has been criticized for its rushed pacing and disappointing conclusion of the story. The last episode has been rated as the second-worst episode with an overall rating of 48%. While the worst-rated episode in the entire series was “the bells” with an overall rating of 47%. Many of the game of Thrones fans did not expect it to end this way.


Fans were expecting that the finale episode will cover up all the flaws of the last three episodes. The last episode left with a lot to talk about. Finale episode moved on a few weeks ahead. It also left some major plot points too. Episode 6 spent less time with the key conversations and spent more time resolving the story. The fans had thought that the finale episode will take some unexpected turns. Some were even thinking about who got the iron throne in the last, watching the episode it seemed that no one got the iron throne as it was melted by the dragon with his fire-breath when Daenerys Targaryen was killed and Sansa was crowned as the queen of the north with Bran as king of the six kingdoms.

Good points of the Iron Throne

So, watching the ending it does not seem at all that anyone had got the iron throne, all the leaders set to their individual journey. With only Bran and Sansa ruling their kingdoms, others like Arya sets sail to explore west of Westeros. Tormund and Ghost along with Jon and Wilding’s head to the north of the wall. Brienne, Bronn, Tyrion, Davos, and Sam rebuild the king’s landing.

Now, now enough with the critics. Why don’t we look at some good points of the finale episode? It is true that the iron throne had rushed a little to meet its ending. But there were some good points about the episode like the role played by all the actors was amazing. Whether it was small or big, they had done their work well and their hard work has truly paid off in the Game of Thrones series. The design of the set was also incredible. Costumes and the other things they had played an important part in the series and that was truly fantastic. We should truly thank all the crew members of the Game of Thrones series, because of their hard work the series was completed successfully.
