  • Game of Thrones Finale

Game of Thrones went out on top - at least as far as the ratings were concerned.

The final episode of HBO smash hit, Game of Thrones, has delivered Foxtel an overnight linear audience [across all airings] of 1.076 million viewers - the largest in subscription TV history.

The finale's ratings beat out last week's Game of Thrones' episode, "The Bells," which previously held the record, for only a week, at 18.4 million viewers.

And these are the people who were trusted to pick a new King?

USA Today's Kelly Lawler called the finale "a disaster ending that fans didn't deserve", adding that it was "hacky; it was cliched".

It described GoT creators D.B. Weiss and David Benioff as "woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material". The executive producers had said they planned to go offline when the finale aired.

While many fans hailed The Iron Throne as a return to form after rushed and unsatisfying plot twists, others were disappointed that the world's most popular TV drama failed to land a final emotional punch.

"Because I know how much work was put into this". "I'm mad, I'm mad that this is the last episode".

Fans spotted another modern prop that made its way on camera - a plastic water bottle seen partly hidden behind the boot of character Samwell Tarly.

It comes just weeks after the show copped it for a mystery coffee cup sitting in front of Daenerys Targaryen during the fourth episode of the season.

HBO has reportedly ordered a prequel. It will be set thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones, according to various media reports.

Sophie Turner, who played Sansa Stark, said the petition was "disrespectful".

"Arya was the only good part of Season 8".
