Many were disappointed with the ending of Game of Thrones so I took the time to rewrite an alternate, new ending the way I would have liked to see. New plots for the Night King and several other characters.
Jump to my alternate ending: 4:43

Holy shit !! You should have been a writer somewhere. Had season 8 followed this storyline, it could have the potential of becoming the Best Season ever and also a very conclusive end to the Game of Thrones. Just one correction: Arya couldn't use Jamie's face with Jamie all alive

Michael Price Well actually, she’s not the villain. As for all the kinda bad things she did, any king or queen would’ve done. Execute traitors? Of course. Be pissed that her Friend and dragon died? Anyone would’ve been. The part where she burns the city down is just a lame excuse where she turns mad.

I like it. Breaks my heart for Jon, but I don't know how many times he was surrounded and almost died (or did die). Also, Jaime and Brianne could live happily ever after.

How would Arya Stark be able to use Jamie's face if Jamie is still alive?

I strongly disagree about Jamie. His story is about never being able to get away from Cersei’s hold, no matter how much he tried to free himself. The fact that he failed is what I liked most about his arc. It would have been nothing but a stereotype if he had completed his arc the way the fanboyz wanted.

The funny thing is is that the writers weren't on a 6 episode restraint. HBO for both season 7 and 8 were offered 10 episodes, but D&D decided to go with shorter episodes, probably because their tiny little brains couldn't handle writing 10 episodes at 1 time

There is one thing I don't agree with when Arya uses Jamie face the would make Jamie have to be dead so your whole scene with Cersei would not make since.

While I watched your video and thought it was dumb, I came to point where you actually said that it would be a better story and character arc to have best trained assassin in the world accidentally die to a powerless non-trained chained in dungeon whore is better idea than original?

Dude, I thought about a rewrite when it happened and you can't skip ep1 and ep2 if you really know military tactics, Benioff and Weiss don't know much about military tactics and strategy, you have to do a few things different before ep3. When you skipped to ep3 I stopped the video and left this comment and took off.

To be perfectly honest, it's extremely hard to come up with anything worse than the original. They outdone themselves in that regard... Too bad!

I get that the Nightking is strong but I mean he shouldn't be able to pierce a sword straight through a chest plate with ease. In a real scenario, he wouldn't be able to go straight through.

I disagree, Jon should have been King with Danni as queen. He needed to Marry her and Jon learning of Danni's pregnancy would be made to protect his wife and child from all the other families craving the throne, including Sansa and the only way to achieve this is to be King. Jon would also Slay the Night King with Long Claw, I would have a battle between them and Danni trying to attack the Night King and in the distraction Jon would throw Long Claw and have it piece the Knight Kings head coming out of his mouth. Then the white walkers army would fall. At this point the golden army would regroup, then attack the survivors. Jon anticipating this would send Arya to kill Cercie as Jamie would be a nice touch. At which point she would throw Cercies head onto the battle field by the golden army commander stopping the battle. Then Tyrion would announce Jon as King. Jamie would marry Breane and raise a family. Sansa would be Queen of the North and Bran would be Maester to all the other Maesters. The wildlings would return to the North. A pregnant Danni would ride Rhaegal to Essos and relieve the bank of their power after learning of who's been trying to kill them all and funded the double cross. Can you say dracarys?! Then Tyrion would be appointed as the new Hand of the King again. They would own the bank so no more coup d' tats could be funded. From this day forward all people shall be free, declares Danni and Jon. Arya would still go her own way, but Gendry would go with her. And return to his lands and status with a pregnant Arya as his bride.

Should have put Rhaegars first son AEGON as the leader of the golden company weilding blaclfyre like he does in the books

Jamie and Cersie belong together, something that show has established already, several times. Jamie returning to the love of his life, was fitting. Brienne honestly didn't stand a chance.

One flaw in your story - for a Faceless Man to use someone's face, they have to kill them first. So that wouldn't work.
magliadoro Hour ago
@MrKriselt I'm willing to overlook it in light of how f'ing awful the original season 8 was. Hey they say everyone has a double in our world, why not in Westeros? :)
MrKriselt 2 hours ago
Indeed. One flaw. Compared to countless in the "original" lol. It doesnt have to be that face exactly (even though story wise it fits the best), but not using Arya's skills while killing the 7 season build up is just trash.

Your version is way better.

Much better ending. Seperatly, I Still don’t know why they even added euron if they weren’t going to use any of his amazing story.
If arya have to pretend to be jamie, first she would have to kill jamie first for the face..... And what about Aegon Targaryan....?

I would have had Jamie kill cerci by saying, “the things I did for love” and then push her out the window

Well, that was just about perfect. Very satisfying. Honestly I feel like the show runners need to go work along side Rian Johnson at Burger King after screwing the pooch on what should have been an easy enough ending to write. Definitely like your rewrite better.

I'm going to come out and say it. No ending for game of thrones would be good. Im not defending the canon ending. Im not criticizing your ending. Im just saying that no matter what happened, not everyone was going to be happy. And I hate that everyone is vilifying the writers for failing at something that was literally impossible. Making everyone happy in the end. It's simply not possible. I will critique your ending a little bit. Even if all the events ended up as they did in your version, why would sansa bend the knee to Daenerys? To me, that makes no sense. Where the hell did Elliria come from? At that point she would have been dead for weeks. Also your ending is more like that of a fantasy novel. If that was what it was supposed to replace, sure it would be a good ending. But game of thrones has what it is in the title. A game of thrones. I wouldn't be suprised if this is how george ends the books, but the show is different. The show isn't a fantasy show. It's a suspense drama with fantasy elements. The main story isnt about the white walkers. It's why they are barely mentioned for the first couple of seasons. They are there as a big bad to get all the protagonist who hate each other or who cant trust each other together. They are not the overarching antagonist of the series. That title belongs to the iron throne. Most of the problems throughout the series is entirely based off who sits on the thing. Ned is killed and robb goes to war because Joffrey isnt supposed to be king. The war of the five kings is fought over who sits on it. Jon wouldn't have gone to the wall if king robert didnt want to kill all targaryens. Arya is trying to run from the ones who sit on the throne. Everything we see in essos is based on Daenerys and her journey to get the throne. There are only 2 problems in Westeros that had nothing to do with the throne or who sat on it, and that was the white walkers and the wildlings, and even they wouldn't have been that much of a problem if everyone would forget about the throne and band together. Keeping that all in mind, then it makes sense that the climax of the series isnt about the white walkers. At that point in the series and with season 7 ending as it did, then there was no more time for alliances and fighting over who would sit on the throne. Lines in the sand had been drawn, those who were worthy of sitting on the throne (who went to save humanity) against those who only cared about their personal power (those who didnt leave kings landing). Also, I might be the only one who understands why jamie did what he did. I may not have liked that he left brianne, but what do we want him to do? Stay in winterfell while is unborn child is killed, literally his last chance to do something right by his family? I know he could have stayed with brianne and had a family of his own, but Cersei is still the mother of his children. If we remember, right before marcella dies in his arms, he decides that he's going to try and be a father to his 2 remaining children (who both died before he could try). He already knows the pain of losing children who he was supposed to protect. Why would he just stay and let his last one die? Maybe he could try and save Cersei and tell her to run and then he could go back to brianne, but then again (like I said at the start of this very long comment) no ending would make everyone happy. Jamie choosing Cersei over the rest of Westeros also gives what jon did (killing Danny) more meaning to the honor that jon has, so I think that was actually good writing. I think that I'm actually happy that the series ended that way and not some blanket everything is right with the world way. It ends how all war should end. With no one being happy with how it ended, and a little bit ashamed that it had to have happened in the first place. This is not a story about epic battles and kick ass dragons and awesome undead armys. That's why all the major battles are in the middle of the season. It's a story that tries to tell everyone that not everything is black and white. Jamie did not deserve to live. Sure, he overcame a lot of character flaws since the first episode, but he still did a lot of terrible things that he did not regret doing. Daenerys was made out to be this paragon of virtue and good, but everyone has a dark side. She started out as an abused little girl with no power, and ended as a person who had finally gotten all the power in the world and went mad. I will end this (extremely) long comment with a quote from Ramsey Bolton. "If you think this has a happy ending, then you haven't been paying attention"

The Arya thing wouldnt work because she would have had to kill Jamie to use his face and also you removed all magic from the world so it wouldnt work anyway

Jade Amelia Walsh
I was really hoping that they would have Arya wearing Jamie’s face during this season, when they didn’t (and didn’t even mention her skills) It felt like there was no point to most of her story! Wish they had done even half your ideas for the ending

How do I tag George R R Martin in this? Infinitely better, just need a little work on why the Night King is unable to be killed by dragon glass, maybe link it to the Weirwood tree still, kind of like a Voldemort horcrux type thing (it contains his blood from his transformation sacrifice that sort of thinking). Another point is how does the Night King travel to the tree in pursuit of Dany with Viseron now dead? And finally was it established that Arya could use the faces of the living? Other than these loose ends, which are just my thoughts, this is an incredible rewrite my friend, particularly liked the inclusion of Ellaria, great work! I'd also like to see a bit added to the Hound's message to his brother when he said "You know who's coming for you, you've always know". We now know he's referring to himself but in hindsight this message seems to be worded a little strangely since they were face to face at the time, if he'd have concluded with "soon" or "but not yet/here", it would suggest the Hound was waiting for his moment possible when just the two of them are alone.

Loved it. Just don’t think the Arya/Ellaria part is needed, Ellaria is better off dead. Jon’s one of my favorites, but him dying would make more sense. Also, if your vision happened instead of D&D, I would probably not hate Daenerys like I do lol. And yes, the Night King should get the spotlight as the main villain, hope GRRMartin has time to write something better in the books (if he actually finishes both of them before passing away).

okay, so this is the best ending, the ending that I wanted. my qyeen Daenerys should be rule the seven kingdom.. and that's happening here..it's the official ending... i'm removing previous one from my mind... thank you so much for bring danny back

Whoah. That was a better ending. Except Jon's death though. :/

I see one flaw in your version: Dany's ability to survive fire is magical so it too should go away when the wyrmwood tree burns.

Many flaws too! Dragons shouldn't exist too, red priests would all die, etc.

Not everything has to be used. GOT had a reputation for building up characters only to obliterate them in shocking but very plausible ways. This left Westeros littered with relics of failed endeavors such as the Blackfish. Similar to LOTR the books uses references to previous heroes and relics to create a sense of a vast but unwritten world. However Dumb and Dumber started doing shit that made no sense just because it’s unexpected.

I know a lot of people might not agree, but I secretly would’ve liked to see the Night King sit on the throne 🙊 and then see all the main characters kneel to him as they’re now part of his army. Imagine that. Everything Jon tried so hard to prevent actually happening...
