Bittersweet

More thought required. But I liked the #GameofThrones finale. I did not love the majority of this last season, but I thought they ended it in a fitting manner. Which is to say, a coda. Bittersweet in nature. Yes, like ‘Lord of the Rings’ and many tales before it.

And so it ends.

I don’t really have a hot take. Besides there are already plenty of them out on the net. For me, I may need to ruminate a bit more on the end and endings in general. Mostly, I just wish everything was a tad bit more satisfying than what we got. It’s just far too rare to hit that sweet spot. Far more easier to go for the bittersweet end and sometimes that’s enough.
