Now, one Game of Thrones director has dared to defend many fans’ opinions of the final season. While he didn’t call for a rewrite, Neil Marshall — who helmed two episodes, including S2’s “Blackwater” and S4’s “The Watchers on the Wall,” which was nominated for an Emmy — has sided with disappointed fans.

He agrees that the final season was “rushed,” and told Metro he would have done things differently.

“Inevitably, I would’ve taken a different approach to directing,” he said.

“One of the greatest experiences I had with working on both those episodes was that they were so open to bringing my ideas, particularly about battle scenes and how battles worked. I would’ve definitely added my strategy and knowledge to that.”

Neil isn’t the only Game of Thrones affiliate to offer his own honest take on the final season. Even Isaac Hempstead Wright, the actor behind Bran Stark, has said that he thought the final episode was a “joke script.”

It’s so difficult to finish a series as popular as this without pissing some people off… There’s going to be a lot of broken hearts.”

Oh well. We’ll always have seasons 1-7.
