almightycutie has taken disected, mixed, rearanged and sewn back together the various plotlines to produce an entirely new experience for this finale to Game of Thrones. I was so hooked I watched all over the course of 2 nights. Its a remarkable piece of editing juggling that only stumbles once near the end. A scene where the dragon melts the throne feels "off" but then I cannot think of another way to aproach the scene. Given the ambition of this retelling it amazes me that that was the only fault I could find.

I hadn't planned on watching the entirety of this in one sitting, but an unexpected day off coupled with the quality of this fanedit led to a full day well spent rediscovering what I once liked about GAME OF THRONES.

Tyrion's intelligence.
Dany's sanity.
Sersei's agency.
Jaime's character arc.
Littlefinger's cleverness.
Westeros' size.
The Night King's threat.

All this (and more) have been restored in this reconstructed finale. I can only imagine how much of an undertaking this was, but the work is much appreciated.

If I were to offer any suggestions/constructive criticism, it would be:

-Pump up the volume of Bran's new lines (though admitted my hearing is getting worse with age, so this might not be as problematic for others as it was for me). I had particular difficulty parsing his "I've led you into a trap" lines to Jon beyond the Wall.

-If it exists, and it doesn't slow down the pace of the final episodes too much, add or restore some small bit of Jon + the Dragon between him petting the dragon at DragonStone to becoming a full-on dragon rider in the final battle to bridge this hug transition. Maybe even a line repurposed from elsewhere to acknowledge it? Admittedly, this may be impossible with the materials onhand, but it was one of the few times I felt there was something missing.

-Add an establishing shot of King's Landing or some buffer footage of some sort before Jon comes to melt the Iron Throne. The jump from Winterfell to King's Landing felt a little too abrupt.

And lastly, and this is more "wouldn't it be cool, but holy crap it would probably take forever" suggestion

-Adjust the opening credits of each episode to reflect the characters and locales featured in your new arrangement.

Thanks so much for sharing your work and effort with the community; marvelous job!

First of all, thank you!

I enjoyed your fanedit a lot,
I watched all the episodes in a week more or less, and I highly recommend people to watch it: those that did not like the final 2 seasons, or those that liked them just OK, but had a bad aftertaste.

How you built the story is amazing. The new ending is good!
A solid alternative to the official one.

All the episodes feel improved and, somehow, each improvement builds into the next.

For example, the fact that you fixed the Arya vs. Sansa storyline, lets us focus (nonstop!) in the action and story North of the Wall, which at the same time benefits from this mission being set up by Bran, etc.

There was only one thing that threw me out of the experience.

It was the flashback, right before the Night King's death.

It somehow breakes up the climax for me...

I understand that there is a better explanation of the story there, and I like how Bran character is further developed and strengthened in this edit (it is crazy how much it has been improved with your changes! it works!). But there should be another moment for this flashback... or maybe not!

And also some "epilogue moments" could be removed... the final moments feel a bit like a jigsaw, though I have to say, what a difficult job!

If I sum up all the characters that feel improved... Bran, Daenerys, Jaime, Tyrion but also The Hound, Sansa, Sam... and the epicity of the series is reinforced overall. It makes sense that Jon is more quiet, like his father did.

All in all, big thumbs up! highly recommended, and a big Thank you!

OUTSTANDING!

I could leave it at that, but I won't.

A Reminder.

Do you recall when you used to watch GOT, that expectation and tension of not knowing what was coming next, revelling in the dialogue and intrigue? Do you recall as the final seasons progressed how tha mood and ambience gradually fell away as characters unravelled, plot lines went askew and modern idiom seem to excessively creep in?

Well, THIS is the final season of GOT we all deserved (with a few personal caveats at the end).

Almightycutie not only achieves his stated objectives, IMO he surpasses them...considerably.

I watched the first few epsisodes with the hangover of dissapointment from their original airings and frankly had low expectations. "As long as it's not shit, I'll be happy". As things progressed though I had that old GOT Viewer vibe back...and I was not dissapointed. I was entralled ALL THE WAY.

The biggest improvements for me were the elimination of "fast travel", removal of modern idiom and the the revised character arcs and fates. I literally can't fault this albeit I did notice some mid scene costume changes a couple of times (but I edit as well so I'm primed for that)...but on both occasions it was only coz I recal the scenes being different and when I rewound to see the scene again THEN I noticed....masterfully executed.

The technical standard here is superlative and with circa 10 hours of material, the one or two audio segues which might be smoother are frankly so minor, no points dedcuted on the 3 technical categories.

Enjoyment: I score a 9 here, reluctantly and that is mainly due how this winds up...There is nothing wrong with the ending per-se, but the choices here did remind me a tad of what the original problems were. Let me be clear though, it is a far more satisfying conclusion and frankly had it been the one that aired, we all would have been ok with it...

Narrative: Again, this is outstanding and I completely agree and understand the choices made to accomplish this outstanding edit. I do however believe that with a little more work, one or two of the "intrigue" plot lines could have been retained/modified/ incorporated in order to keep the threat of the unexpected in regards to character threads, alive. The streamlining of this is a tad too much for my taste, and though it was necessary in order to deliver new outcomes and fates overall, It would be nice if a V2 were to drop back in 10-20 mins overall of a few of those destabilising interactions (even if they do not pay off and the new outcomes are retained). I also fully expected the titles to roll after "the melting" (avoiding spoliers), and the sequence of scenes which followed gave me a Return of the King vibe, with one or two too many scenes. Nothing wrong, just a personal choice. In fact, I think just a reordering of the last 10 minutes might benefit this outstanding edit (with some excision of Jon's reaction shots while on the dragons; he's expert now).

Again, let me be clear, this is outstanding, and is my go to version and anyone who would like to have a satiusfying journey on GOT should absolutely watch this, burn to disc, and slip into your box sets!

REMARKABLE!

To stitch together a scene using footage taken from various episodes and, aside from obvious errors an editor can't fix, making it look like it was always that one scene - is an impressive feat.

I was lucky enough to stumble on the thread for this edit in the forum when it was just submitted. Reading through I liked the narrative idea the editor presented, so I decided to check it out even in that unapproved stage. And I was quite impressed. almightycutie managed to turn the story around, forcing it to serve his predefined vision using clever editing techniques and visual effects.

Now that I watched the released version, I was happy to see that some of my suggestions came through here. And other changes that improve upon that initial version I saw. And it works! The edit works! Yes, there are goofs and plot holes and a few places where character motivations become questionable. However, none of it kept me from enjoying the presentation. Especially since it was leagues better than what we got in the original show.

The quality of the edit is absolutely stunning for a fanedit (10/10)

The one thing I don't agree with from a narrative perspective is Jon and Dany staying lovers: I don't think they should remain lovers in the end. It just doesn't suit their characters, being in the position they are in. I would have enjoyed more to see them flying the dragons together, accepting each other as members of the Targaryen family, but not going back to being involved romantically. Maybe a plan for v2 ;)

Well Done!
