Game of Thrones: And Now Our Watch Has Ended
After eight seasons, HBO’s Game of Thrones has come to an end. There is plenty about Game of Thrones to write about. However, what I’m focused on today is Game of Thrones and capital punishment.
“The question of the death penalty isn’t, ‘Do people deserve to die for the crimes they commit?’ I think the threshold question is, ‘Do we deserve to kill?” Bryan Stevenson, executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative.
If you haven’t watched the show you probably don’t care about SPOILERS below. If you have watched the show but haven’t watched the finale, I wonder what kind of monster are you?
Either way—SPOILERS (someday I’ll write a post about why I don’t believe in spoilers).
I like the finale overall.
I probably liked the finale as much as I did because the last two seasons have been a train wreck.
The last minute turn of Daenerys Targaryen from the “breaker of chains” and the one who would “break the wheel” in the game of thrones, into the “mad queen” wasn’t believable and very disappointing.
Could it happen that Daenerys would change? Sure. But I don’t believe show writers brought us to that place.
