Game of Thrones has kept its fans hooked for over 20 years. The excitement that I and millions of other people feel as season 8 approaches is a testament to the power of its storytelling.
In this video, I want to talk about 3 reasons its story is so genius, and show how those reasons predict how it all ends, based on the structure of the story.

0:27 - Reason #1: Fiction often treats good & evil as uncrossing opposites
2:43 - Reason #2: Drama is built on the reversal of fortune
5:24 - Reason #3: Game of Thrones is a hidden Hero's Journey

  • I still didn't wanted Danny to die. The way she did... Betrayed. She could hv died of some disease.. Blood cancer maybe. Then Jon would hv become king

  • Story telling We are not defeated in the field of battle, we are defeated in our head first. Humanity exist where u least expect it. I will help, but only in one condition I won't accept any return gift. Reversal of Fortune is not new. It's a life story. Be the hidden Hero.

  • I come from the future. Season 8 was nonsense. The White Walkers were never humanized unless they were trying to save the series by killing Bran-also no truce. Season 8's ending was not bittersweet, either bitterdark or bitterdumb if you paid attention and an unjustified happy ending for some characters if you didn't. Though it was nihilistic and hollow.

    Cláudio RodriguesCláudio RodriguesÅr siden
    • Not really. I just did a "I come from the future". There was no truce with the White Walkers. Neither Jon nor Dany died in a hero's fashion (what he proposed would actually be more logical than what happened in season 8). But Sansafinger gained power by loosing her humanity and being untrustworthy. Season 8 was nonsense and broke with its own series (see season 2 on bells).

    • Same, but at least parts were laughably bad and illogical. Also do a search on what Davos (spent much time in King's Landing) has to say about Bells and surrender in season 2. Just my suggestion to you in what I hope results in you getting a kick out of when you realize what it means.

  • Predicting that Danny could survive with Jon's child is a bit strange since we know that she can't bare children anymore..

    KateKateÅr siden
    • Sorry for the late reply (just noticed how long ago some people made their posts). But Jon directly challenged this idea when speaking with Daenerys in season 7. Since he is part Targaryen he may have unexpected powers too-which could put him in a position to do that even if he didn't realize it.

      pplr1pplr1År siden
  • Spoiler]]]]]]]]]]] Good call only one survived but all the backstory for Jon and Daeney had nothing to do with the end. Jon’s lineage only played one role...to make his girlfriend jealous. No explanation for what is the three eyed raven and Daeneys crazy bloodline tells us eugenics are real is the world of GOTs worst ending ever!!! D&D are cowards and just ran off with that Disney money and burned away all the credibility they built up with GOTs

  • Sorry buddy, but Joffery and Ramsey were 1 dimensional villains. The Sand Snakes were so bad that another poorly adapted character, Euron, is still praised for killing half of them. Joffery and Ramsey started out evil and stayed that way until they died. Shireen's morality was white as snow until she was burned alive for shock value. I refuse the notion that the cast is as deep and complex as real life when these cartoons eat up screentime. 4:25 HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!! No. No they will not. It wouldn't make any sense. Damn this did NOT age well. XD

  • Jon should have sacrificed himself, while riding Rhaegal, to take down the Night King and save Dany. Jaime kills Cersei, Dany wins the throne and last shot is finding another dragon egg, symbolizing a pregnancy. Could have been great, but no.

    • Would've been a better ending than what season 8 had. Less character breaking as well.

      pplr1pplr1År siden
    • Lol no. George will turn Dany into a genocidal megalomaniac as well. There are many crappy things about this season, but Dany getting a tragic ending is not one of them. She does not deserve the throne

      Lola JayLola JayÅr siden
  • Well you were right - only one of them made it. And I think the writers did a good job in tying it to important concepts throughout the series such as love and duty. Also I think there was a wider twist in which we thought that some non human was the greatest threat, but instead it was the one proclaiming to save the world.

Alana wasn't. Not even Hodor. I don't haye or love to hate reversals of fortune ! I live for them ! Are you kidding me ?! I love them lots & totally always & forevermore !

    Lily ValleyLily ValleyÅr siden
  • I'll cut you some slack since you posted this before the final episode. The hero's journey was subverted by the ending for Jon Snow. It failed to deliver the final stage of the journey, the hero's triumphant return after defeating the antagonist. This is why so many people are disappointed by the ending of the show.
