See What Game of Thrones's Ending Might Look Like If John Hughes Had Directed It
Even if you haven't watched the series finale of Game of Thrones, you've no doubt heard that a lot of fans were not happy with it—or the final season as a whole, including the more than 1.5 million people who signed a petition to have the entire season remade with "competent writers." But instead of supporting a remake, some fans are simply creating their own endings for the series, including one video posted to Twitter that puts a surprising John Hughes twist on the epic HBO show.
As Thrillist reports, Twitter user Dan Olson shared a video depicting the last moments of the Game of Thrones finale as if the characters were in a classic 1980s Hughes movie. The reenvisioned scenes have captions of each character's fate after the show, while Tears for Fears's "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" plays in the background.

The video starts off with Jon Snow up north, with the caption reading, "Jon settled with the free folk and helped establish trade in the North. Lacking leadership and numbers in the aftermath of the defeat of the White Walkers, the Night's Watch quietly disbanded."
Along with Sansa Stark, who's rule as Queen in the North sees the starvation of many Northerners, Arya finds "Westereros," Gendry is beaten up by Stannis Baratheon loyalists at Storm's End, Tyrion Lannister realizes he's lord of Casterly Rock, Bronn is killed in a bar fight, and many more hypothetical conclusions are revealed. This is one ending we think most Game of Thrones fans can get on board with.
