So.. Game of Thrones is almost coming to an end. I know you may be disappointed with the development of the final season. Still, it’s one of the greatest TV series of time, and it has given us a decade long of joy and entertainment. I will never forget those nail-biting, heart-wrenching, and stomach punching TV moments.
