It’s fair to say that a lot of people are unhappy with the direction writers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have taken Season 8 of Game of Thrones, especially after the latest episode, which was the worst received in the show’s history and received a Rotten Tomatoes rank of just 49%.
What to do about it though? Well, people are taking action by signing a Change.org petition urging HBO to start afresh and rewrite the whole thing.
“David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (i.e. the books) to fall back on,” says Dylan D., who started the petition. “This series deserves a final season that makes sense. Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!”
The petition has already received a staggering 300,000 signatures, although something tells us there’s a zero percent chance HBO would ever undertake such a task.
Feel strongly about Season 8? Sign the petition here.
