HBO has submitted the final episode of hit drama Game of Thrones for the Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series. After an epic eight season run, Game of Thrones finally came to an end in May.
With only six episodes, season 8 was the shortest of any Game of Thrones season, which may have been why the final hours felt like they were rushing by at warp speed. With so much story packed into so few hours, many beloved characters received resolutions.
In the final two episodes, Daenerys attacked King’s Landing with her dragon, unleashing fiery carnage, before herself being killed by Jon Snow.
The final episode titled: “The Iron Throne” was written and directed by David Benioff and Dan Weiss.
