Yes, highly disappointed. I just don’t know how to react about how the events have turned out to be in this season. Such a poor script writing and equally poor execution.
I don’t think I need to mention how disappointing everyone is with how the incidents of this much- anticipated series progress as it reaches the final episode of its finale season.

To talk about episodes 3, 4, and 5, of Game of Thrones let’s just say the level of disappointment increases as we move from one episode to the other.
In episode 3, as Winterfell prepares for the war against the Night King, fans are left with mixed feelings. The happiness is for the beastly and courageous role that Arya plays to kill the Night King with the dragon glass and the disappointment is for such an easy death which Night King receives. All the character build-up that was done in the 7 seasons concludes so hastily, that it leaves everyone dissatisfied.
Most importantly, no important character dies in this episode except Sir Jorah and Theon.
Other glorious incidents that are worth recalling again and again are, one, in which Sansa tells Tyrion “you were the best of them” and two, in which Lady Mormont kills the giant in the army of dead.
Episode 4 lowers our expectations further as the army of Winterfell moves to King’s Landing and Jamie again turns loyal to his sister Cersei. These incidents happen after Jon has told his sisters Arya and Sansa that he is a Targaryn, despite Daenerys Targaryen’s warnings. This normalized episode increased everyone’s curiosity for the penultimate episode of the series, and the fans finally hoped for getting the answers they have been waiting for since seven seasons.
Much to everyone’s dissatisfaction, Cersei and Jamie died a rather unglorified and undeserved death in episode 5, and Khaleesi finally goes mad, burning all the King’s Landing to ashes.
Fans have literally called this episode as the worst thing in the history of all the seasons of Game of Thrones.
Finally Jamie rings the bell telling everyone that King’s Landing and the Iron Throne belong to Daenerys Targaryen now.
After episode 5, all the questions still stand unanswered. Nothing was shown about Bran who is the three-eyed-driven from whom everyone had a lot of expectations. Tyrion and Jon Snow are shocked because of what has become of King’s Landing, and the character development of seven seasons bear no satisfactory fruits.
What we expected was Arya Stark killing Daenerys Targaryen to occupy the Iron Throne, and a lot more to happen, which had been left until now just like that, but nothing happened to our satisfaction.
