Spoilers lie inside

Game Of Thrones reduce a essential scene in their controversial season eight finale, it has emerged.

The show completed back in May but was met with criticism from numerous fans for the way it ended.

One particular of the most important speaking points of the finale to the lengthy-operating show was Jon Snow’s murder of his lover and aunt Daenerys Targaryen. In the Television series, Daenerys is noticed destroying King’s Landing with support from her dragon, Drogon, ahead of getting murdered by Snow.

Now, although, sketches from the book The Art of Game of Thrones have shown that a essential scene was axed from the finale.

Just after Daenerys’ destruction of King’s Landing, Snow is seen travelling via the destroyed city ahead of meeting up with the Mother of Dragons.

One particular of the most important speaking points of the Game of Thrones finale – and subsequent criticism – was the ruthlessness of the murder in query, and it appears like this axed scene would’ve offered extra air time to Jon Snow’s complicated, conflicted choice to kill Daenarys.

The scene’s caption in the book reads: “As Jon heads into the Red Preserve, struggling with a option only he can make, he comes upon a enormous pile of snow that reveals itself as a sleeping Drogon. Recognising Jon Snow, Drogon enables him to pass via the door that leads to the throne room… Unsullied soldiers guard under.”

NME‘s Christopher Hooton named Game of Thrones‘ conclusion a “stately but oddly haphazard finale,” writing: “Is that actually how the story ends? The way Drogon’s disappearance with a dead (for now?) Daenerys was left unexplained and then referenced close to the finish was suspect.

“Does any one believe Jon will seriously devote the rest of his days abstinent and childless at The Wall, his accurate identity not recognized by the masses? One particular of the final shots may perhaps have been a door emphatically closing, but it felt like other folks had been intentionally getting left open right here.”
