The Game of Thrones era was unlike anything the internet had ever seen. It felt like everything else stood still on Sunday nights as we watched the multi-layered, conniving story of Westeros unfold; it was all that mattered. The controversial ending remains one of the hottest topics in the GOT community.

To be clear, I was not as upset at the ending. I took time to rewatch the entire series from start to finish, and when you can watch the story that way, the seasons feel less isolated, allowing a different perspective based on how you're able to receive the story.

That being said, I acknowledge that I am one person. That is just my opinion and there is no doubt that it could have been better. So hearing Game of Thrones creators D.B. Weiss and David Benioff admit that they knew people would be upset is a slap in the face to their passionate fan base.

Game of Thrones fans deserved more than a rushed product

This statement is admitting they knew they were putting out material that was less than. The reports were already out that they were tapped to work on the next Star Wars movie. In a rush to get working on that, Weiss and Benioff decided to sacrifice one of the most successful television shows in TV history. It was a decision that enraged an intelligent fanbase that could spot the sloppy job a mile away.

The issue for me is that I can forgive the excitement for Star Wars. It is STAR WARS. If you moved quickly through GOT but believed you still presented a good product, that's one thing. We're all wrong sometimes. The quote in the interview makes it sound like they knew it wasn't that good but tried to talk themselves into it and hoped the crowd would just go with it—an unacceptable admission.

As my mother always says, "Hope is not a strategy." Neither Benioff nor Weiss were considered successful until Game of Thrones elevated them in their respective careers. To make matters worse, they didn't even complete the Star Wars project. Still, it was fair to be excited about the possibility of joining such a storied franchise but disregarding the community responsible for your newfound notoriety with such indifference should never have been an option.
