“Game of Thrones” backlash has hit a fever pitch with an online petition that has gone viral, amassing over 100,000 signatures and counting. The petition urges series creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss to remake the final six episodes, many of which have divided “Thrones” fans around the worldThe series’ penultimate episode, “The Bells,” proved to be one of its most divisive for a twist in which Daenerys Targaryen went full Mad Queen and burned King’s Landing to the ground.
“David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (i.e. the books) to fall back on,” the petition states. “This series deserves a final season that makes sense. Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!”
