Now, my hope is that GRRM will finish the written books.

The books and show had diverged noticeably by the time the show passed the fifth book. Room to hope for a better final arc and ending.

So watched the finale again last night to clear up a couple of things.

One lingering question, and the google isn't much help, why didn't Sam seem to give a shit what happened to Jon in the end?

He went from "you're my best friend" and were naming the baby after you to not even asking about him at the gathering in the dragon pit.

Sansa was pissed Jon wasn't brought, Arya threatened to slit Yaras throat, Bran of course just sat there probably filling up his drawers.

Sam seemed unconcerned. Not even a "sorry you got a raw deal and sent back to the wall"

Lazy writing?. I can see everyone else not caring, but Sam was only alive because Jon saved his ass multiple times in past seasons.

Just doesn't compute.

Yes, lots of it.

It wasn't horrible, but it was a good bit worse than it could have been.

Yeah, finishing up a Deadwood re-watch and the movie, then I'll be dumping it.

Never gonna happen. Just find a new dream and walk away from this one.

The designer of the gun had clearly not been instructed to beat about the bush. 'Make it evil,' he'd been told. 'Make it totally clear that this gun has a right end and a wrong end. Make it totally clear to anyone standing at the wrong end that things are going badly for them. If that means sticking all sort of spikes and prongs and blackened bits all over it then so be it. This is not a gun for hanging over the fireplace or sticking in the umbrella stand, it is a gun for going out and making people miserable with.'

Yeah, I don't see it being very probable. I suspect he'll end up keeling over from a heart attack sometime after finishing the current book. He's 70, and not in very good health.

There was a lot of lazy writing. The show went from a finely crafted cohesive story to an ordinary weekly serial where the current episode may or may not care what happened in previous episodes. It's written for the current week's story and that's it. There's no overarching framework to hold it together.

Finally finished last night. Not awful, there were limited options that wouldn't have taken another two seasons I think. Glad a few folks got me to watch the series for sure.

I'm in the "why do they need to?" camp. Heck, I was surprised they still had the gate to the tunnel down. Again, why?

If he hasn't written the last book/books by now, I don't see that he has much interest in ever finishing them. Maybe he got bored, maybe he has too much money. Who knows?

He definitely hasn't written the last books yet. He's still (supposedly) plugging away at the much-delayed Book 6 of an estimated 7.

I'm going with bored, considering he's chasing squirrels on about a dozen other projects right now. Various TV shows (some related to GoT and others not), other book series, various video games and tabletop games, etc. etc.

He's going to piddle away at all those other projects and keel over before he ever finishes GoT.
