well after reading all the books so far, and being part way through the prequel book I don't really have that much invested interest in the show anymore. before I read the "spoilers" I had a pretty good idea about what was going to happen in the last two episodes. maybe I didn't know very specific details but after the fourth episode I pretty much could guess how the last two were going to play out. and honestly the "spoilers" I read were hardly real "spoilers" for me, I think there were two, maybe three things in them that I hadn't already figured was going to happen. they were really more like guesses and were very very close to what I was already expecting, especially after watching the last episode.
honestly, I don't feel like they really spoiled anything for me. as many people have said here its really not about the ending but the whole story in general. I think someone wrote that this will go down as the best 7 season show ever...and I kinda agree with that. this 8th season is just missing something, being to compressed or poor story telling...I don't know, it just doesn't seem as good as past seasons. like "The Wire," I freaking loved that show but the last season or maybe two last seasons just weren't as catching as the earlier ones.
I dunno, I guess I sound like an idiot. ill just shut up. its a freaking great show and I love it. and like I said, even knowing what I know now, im still super excited to watch the last two episodes.
I just want more books!
EDIT: maybe I was just taking many more bonghits during the first few 7 seasons. not doing that anymore.
