'Game of Thrones' fans sign petition insisting HBO remake season 8 with 'competent' writers

'Game of Thrones' fans have their priority sorted.

After what is being dubbed as the "worst" penultimate episode ever, fans have taken upon themselves to undo the damage. Dissatisfied viewers have launched an online petition on change.org, requesting a remake of the eighth season "with competent writers." 

"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 reads. "The series deserves a final season that makes sense. Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!"

The petition which requires 150,000 signatures has already hit 114K supporters, while writing this article, and is exponentially increasing by seconds. 

The petition refers to an article that says that the " latest episode hasn't exactly gone down well with many fans," so there's a petition for a remake.

As a refresher, the penultimate episode titled 'The Bells' saw Daenerys Targaryen destroy King's Landing with her dragon Drogon even after Cersei surrendered. She went into Mad Queen mode and viewers blamed the "predictable" plot twist to bad writing. The episode, however, has already become the most-watched episode in the show's history.

But this is not the first bad thing about the season according to fans. Prior to this episode, many criticized the showmakers for wrapping storylines in haste and unlike the first five seasons, which was written by George R.R. Martin, the last three were not and that has upset the fans. Other fans blame that co-creators Benioff and Weiss are actually too focused on their next project, 'Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker,' that little importance was given to TV's most famous show of today.
