Nikolaj Coster-Waldau aka Jaime Lannister does not agree with all the Game of Thrones backlash regarding the final season.
Game of Thrones didn’t exactly have a stellar final send-off and left fans with a bad taste in their mouth. Most were disappointed that years of buildup led us to a dead-end and didn’t give the story the justice it so deserved.
During the annual Con of Thrones in Nashville, Coster-Waldau joined fellow cast members Jerome Flynn (Bronn), Miltos Yerolemou (Syrio), and Hannah Murray (Gilly) to talk about the final season. Personally, I wasn’t the biggest fan of it either, but I did find plenty to appreciate about it. It certainly wasn’t what it should have and could have been, but nothing can be done now, can it?

Based on what Coster-Waldau had to say, it’s clear that he’s in full support of how the final season turned out, and he acknowledges the work that went into it. And I have to say, I do agree with him there.
The only thing I’ll say is that for anyone to imagine or to think that the two creators of this show are not the most passionate, the greatest, the most invested of all, and to for a second think that they didn’t spend the last 10 years thinking about how they were gonna end it, is kinda silly.
Of course, dear ‘ol Jaime Lannister isn’t the only one to speak out against the backlash of the final season of Game of Thrones. Sophie Turner, aka Sansa, found the fan petition asking for season 8 rewrites to be disrespectful. Given the nature of the show and how big its fandom was, it’s near impossible that the series would have pleased everyone.
I think regardless of how we feel, it’s nice to see the cast so supportive of the series, isn’t it?
