55 ‘Game of Thrones’ questions we’ll probably never know the answer to

Where my Reeds at?

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our coverage will be reduced. We can't wait to get back to serving you all of the latest fandom news as soon as we can.

All things considered, Game of Thrones had a pretty satisfying ending, but it still left a lot of questions unanswered.

The final season (or two) of Game of Thrones proved to be divisive among fans. Some people felt the ending was too rushed, or that some characters were acting out of character. Other people liked the faster pace and were satisfied with their favorite characters’ development.

Whichever camp you’re in, we can all agree that despite getting some answers and conclusions, we were still left with a lot of questions. Unfortunately, we’re probably never going to get answers to them either.
