“Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke feels bad for people who didn’t like the ending of the show.

As you all know, I hated the ending of “GoT” when it aired, and it hasn’t grown on me one bit. After years and years of insane content, the HBO hit show crawled past the finish line in pathetic fashion. At least for Clarke, she understands people not being happy.

Clarke told The Daily Telegraph the following about reactions from fans to the ending in a piece published on Saturday:

Everyone is going to have their own opinion and they’re fully entitled to them. It’s art and it’s to be dissected and taken on in whatever individual way you wish. And if you’re sad that the show is done and you’re sad because you enjoyed watching it, then that’s sad. It sucks this wasn’t the perfect ending that people were hoping for, but I truly believe we would never have made everyone happy.

I appreciate Clarke being a straight shooter, and she’s 100% correct. While the ending was absolutely atrocious, it was never going to satisfy everybody.

Even if it was great, which it wasn’t, people still weren’t all going to agree. It’s just the nature of the beast when it comes to hit TV shows and movies.

How wild is it that “Game of Thrones” ended months ago, and we’re still talking about the ending? I guess that’s what happens when you have Dany getting murdered by her lover Jon Snow and then her dragon just flies away.

It’s almost like fans really don’t like garbage endings and we hold grudges. Who ever could have guessed?

I don’t know when people will get over the “GoT” ending. I know I won’t be over it for years to come, but that’s just me.

At the end of the day, the ending was a joke, but Clarke did crush it for years as Daenerys. At the very least, she can always be incredibly proud of that accomplishment.
