Game of Thrones has officially come to an end. Sure, George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series — which is the basis for the HBO series — still has at least two books to go, but as far as the on-screen content for this story, we are pretty much done. And it hasn’t really been a flawless run. Over the past few seasons, fans have started to complain about the story moving too fast, and that generally seems to be the consensus for the final season as a whole.
However, As we reported on last week, there is a petition out there for HBO to redo the final season of the show — except this time with “competent” writers, as the petition puts it. HBO, of course, is laughing all the way to the bank, with this season breaking all sorts of records, but what does one of the stars think? Emilia Clark recently spoke with The New Yorker, and they asked her if she would be willing to reshoot and redo it entirely.
“Oh, my goodness. Well, I can only speak to my own character, and the people that I interact with on the show. But I would’ve loved some more scenes with me and Missandei. I would’ve loved some more scenes with me and Cersei.
“I would’ve loved some more scenes between Grey Worm and Missandei. I would’ve loved to see a bit more between Cersei . . . I feel like there was . . . The genocide was there. That was always going to happen. And I just think more dissection and those beautifully written scenes that the boys have between characters—that we are more than happy to contently sit there and watch ten minutes of two people talking, because it’s beautiful. I just wanted to see a bit more of that. But I’m in no position to critique the geniuses that have written eight seasons’ worth of wonderful stuff.”
TV fans are rarely ever pleased with the way their favorite TV shows ended (I think the closest we ever got to a content fandom was Breaking Bad), but Game of Thrones has really gotten the short end of the stick this season, with its quality becoming a huge punchline on the web.
Would you be open to seeing a redone season if HBO decided to go through with it (to be clear, they NEVER would).
