No matter how the reception, good or bad, one can’t keep Game of Thrones out of the news. Each episode of the concluding season is drawing a reaction like never before. The latest one, the fifth is no different.
The fifth episode titled ‘The Bell’ is officially the lowest ranked episode of the series across the seasons so far. It has beaten the previous lowest which also happens to be from the same season. The episode ‘The Long Night’ had got the lowest rating, but now, ‘The Bell’ has crossed it. These are definitely not the records one needs to be proud of.
The frustration among fans is palpable with scores of meme’s available on social media platforms. The displeasure is heard everywhere. The fans can’t understand how such a drastic turn could be taken involving Daenerys Targaryen. The character was one of the most powerful written in Television history and to make her, so ‘mad’ in rage quite in contrast with what happened before has touched a raw nerve of the fans all over.
Another aspect is the ending given to Cersei and Jamie Lannister. The former especially was one of the most wickedly evil roles that fans love to hate. Her end left then entirely frustrated and displeased.
The history of Game of Thrones is such that fans expected much more. But, sadly their expectations haven’t been met at all. One final episode remains in the conclusion of the series, and the situation currently is that fans are worried what worse the makers could do to ruin the love for the epic series.
