The Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 6 Rotten Tomatoes score is in, and it’s not very pretty for the HBO epic.
The Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer score for the Game of Thrones Season 8 finale currently sits at 50%.
Here’s what the critics are saying.
Carissa Pavlica at TV Fanatic gives the episode a 3/5. She writes, “The ending was rushed to the point of a fantasy even greater that the story told, as given all we had grown to know and love over six (or seven, depending on your view) got torn asunder in the space of six episodes.”
Erik Kain at Forbes gives the episode a “fresh” rating. He writes, “I liked this episode, and at times I thought it was truly brilliant… But the lords and ladies of Westeros picked a new king in five minutes, when we’ve spent eight seasons fighting a bloody war over who would sit on the Iron Throne.”
Huw Fullerton at Radio Times gives the episode a rotten score. They write, “That finale was a mixed bag for me. I’m not sure how much it made ACTUAL SENSE in terms of how we’ve seen this world to work, but Jon ending up back at the Wall with Ghost actually felt to me like one of the best endings for his character.”
Kimberly Roots at TV Line gives it a fresh rating. She writes, “Wow. Drogon understood more about the geopolitical power struggle and human weakness than I would’ve thought he did.”
Kelly Lawler at USA Today gives it a rotten rating. She writes, “It was hacky; it was cliched. Every character left standing received a saccharine coda. It was all too simple, too clean, even with a major death and a surprise contender for the Iron Throne. Closure is one thing, but pandering is entirely another.”
While the season finale sits at a 50% rating, audiences have had a massive negative reaction to the entire season. The Audience Score currently sits at 39%.
