    One of the most successful monarchies of all time had a 7 elector system.

    It also makes sense in Westeros, how they executed it and who they elected is another matter.

    To be fair, one of the positives from this season, were the 12,000 of the original 8,000 unsullied who survived.

    I watched this last episode in a packed movie theater. It was disappointing, but not as disappointing as I expected it to be. There were a few enjoyable moments, plus some stellar acting from Dinklage.

    I liked it more than I thought I would. Some things made sense at least relative to the rest of the season. Episode 3 to 5 inflicted most of the damage.

    I'll share that with you. I called Tyrion ruling the south and Sansa ruling the north as a separate kingdom. Since Bran spends most of his time staring at walls while he is three eyed ravening around the world, Tyrion is the one who is really ruling the south.

    To get it remade, you don't need a petition with 1 million signatures. You need $100 million.
    Just a nitpick, but it's $60 million. If it was 10 episodes they would have had more time to end things without so much being rushed to conclusion.

    Very little made sense in the final.

    Especially the jokers who sat at the small council with fanfiction dialogue.
    Very early on in the show Tyrion had to explain what a bank is Bronn, now the dude is the Master of Coins.
    Apparently all it takes is to be an avid book reader to be Maester on the council. There is a lot more than just greyscale one needs to learn.
    And Master of Grammar is Ser Davos taught by Shireen.
    And why does Bran, of all....creatures, need a Master of Whispers


    Bran declared himself 3-eyed raven hence he could not be Lord of Winterfell, but is ok with the title King of the 6 Kingdoms. Masterful player of the game, this dude, also pretty evil given that he might have known/suspected the scorched human policy to be effected in KL (even though he is not supposed to know the future). Dr Strange-Bran.
    Ok I will say Bran is younger than Cersei, but is he really more beautiful than her?

    Pedestrian (she lost her horse) Marya Sue had to tell Jon Snow what a killer looks like - because all those years serving at the the Night's Watch he was mingling with income tax fraudsters.

    Greyworm was ready to kill Davos and the Queen's bff for the sake of 5 Lannister soldiers but was able to show restraint after Daenerys's death for weeks while keeping Tyrion and Jon prisoner.

    Apparently the Last War was just a precursor to many more wars all across the world, ofc this is excused because she had gone full retard at this point.

    The casting department made an error and inadvertently hired too many PoC to play Unsullied and Dothraki. It would have been bad PR to turn them away so they all got a part in the show.
    There is literally a scene where the Unsullied are escorting Tyrion and a soldier's junk is flaying about for all to see. Forget #FakeNews, #FakeEunuchs are the worst!

    It was evident that the Unsullied feared Jon would kill Tyrion or that Tyrion would kill Jon (really?), hence the weapon handover, but when it comes to visit for their Queen, well....you can just keep your weapon.

    After the plebithide, the dragon had just acquired enough XP to increase in level and immediately placed all of his ASI's in Intelligence thus understanding the importance of the Iron Throne. He, like Greyworm, worked through his emotional rage and spared Jon.

    As for the Greater Council, which only reflected less than a dozen title holders, guess they ran out of extras (but not plastic bottles).
    I was amazed Dorne didn't desire their own independence given their nation's history, especially when Sansa declared the North as independent.
    Someone needs to tell Tyrion he is also Lord of Casterly Rock.

    Get ready to follow Stark Trek as we follow Arya who boldly goes where no man (or woman) has gone before.

    Anyhoo...

    EDIT: Also why would they want their own lands/titles and houses - they would be over in a single generation. I guess where wars failed to reduce their numbers, having a house will.

    Also last 3-Eyed Raven lived for thousands of years (according to the show)...so that is a really long time for the next election. Dictator4Life!
    This is the dude that told his sister she looked hot the night of her raping.
    He has the best words, Making Westeros Great Again, one bad script at a time.
