Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss were surprised by the divisive reaction to the season 8 finale. The hit HBO series, based on George R.R. Martin's books, was wildly successful but faced controversy over its ending. Benioff and Weiss discussed their expectations during a recent interview, admitting they hoped for a more balanced response. The duo did not anticipate the negative feedback, citing the network's influence on audience perception. As the most-watched show on HBO, Game of Thrones faced high expectations for its conclusion, especially with no source material to guide the last seasons. Despite the polarizing ending, it was inevitable that not everyone would be pleased due to the massive viewership and varied opinions. Ultimately, the Game of Thrones finale could never satisfy everyone, but it remains a significant moment in television history.
