Warning: This article contains spoilers for those who haven't watched the "Game of Thrones" series finale.

Winter came and Game of Thrones finished its run in a season that captivated audiences as fans waited to see how everything was going to play out.

But when the finale episode aired on Sunday, fans were divided over the fantasy drama series' shocking ending.

You can't please everybody. But actor Jason Alexander knows a thing or two about capping off a series and its repercussions with devoted audiences.


Alexander, who played George Costanza in the sitcom, Seinfeld (1989–1998), reminded the GoT cast about gratitude.

"Dear #GOT company, I know a little something about finales and disappointed fans. My advice: live in joy that you are part of something that moves people so. You were all magnificent. My family and I loved it all. Thanks."


Seinfeld fans were quick to tell the actor how much they enjoyed his show's finale, which at the time was the fourth most watched regular series finale in the history of U.S. television behind M*A*S*H, Cheers and The Fugitive, with an estimated estimated at 76.3 million viewers.






Fans and critics were very divided about how GoT concluded. Lucy Mangan from The Guardian wrote:

"There's no doubt this season has been a rushed business."

Over a million disappointed viewers signed a petition calling for the eighth season to be remade with "competent writers."

One Twitter user mentioned that fan reactions are a good indicator of a show's popularity.


Even the Seinfeld finale wasn't entirely a home run.






May the GoT cast recover from the despair of mixed reviews.



You can't please everybody. But for the record there were those who enjoyed both series finales.



Onward and upward. Few shows can polarize a global audience the way GoT has. That's already a huge win, right?

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
