‘Game of Thrones’ Season 8 Finale Recap: All Hail King Who?

• Then Tyrion himself, the linchpin of so much of “Game of Thrones,” was entirely left out of “Song of Ice and Fire.” A popular theory held that Sam was ultimately going to be the one who wrote the story we’ve just watched.

Daenerys, Jaime, Cersei, Jorah, Missandei, Ned, Robb, Rickon, Dickon, Hodor (Hodor) and about a billion others didn’t make it, but we’re still here. We were the watchers on the couches, and now our … wait, how does it go again?
