The last season of Game of Thrones turned out to be one of the most talked season finale in recent times. The series received heavy backlash for its poor writing. Also, many fans lost their calm when one of the show’s primary lead Daenerys Targaryen became the evil monster in the final season. It’s been a long time since all of this happened, but fans still can’t get over the underwhelming season finale. In an interview with The New Yorker, Dinklage, who currently stars in Cyrano said he didn’t get the fans’ response for the finale.

“Well, everybody’s always going to have an opinion, and that means an ownership. It’s like breaking up with somebody. They get upset. I can’t speak for everybody, but my feeling is they didn’t want it to end, so a lot of people got angry. I feel like what [the showrunners] Dave [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss] did was extraordinary,” Dinklage said. Further talking about Dany’s character turning out to be the villain of the show, Dinklage added, “This happens. Monsters are created. And you don’t see it coming. We vote them into office. You look the other way. So for everybody to get upset because they loved a character so much and they had so much faith in that person—there were signposts all along the way for that character.”

Daenerys Targaryen played by Emilia Clarke flash-fried half the population of the King’s Landing in the show. “[T]hat’s because of what was happening all along,” Dinklage said, “It added up to something. There are people who’ve named their children Khaleesi. You’ve just got to maybe wait till the series finale before you get that tattoo or name your golden retriever Daenerys! I can’t help you! I’m sorry. She went mad. She was driven to that, and she’s a victim as well in terms of how she was treated. She went through it, and she came out angry, as a lot of us do.”
