Game of Thrones went through a gauntlet of criticism in its final season. It had a lot of ground to cover in the series finale, and a lot of threads to tie, and for the most part, it succeeded. After the previous episode, with Dany burning King's Landing to the ground, it was clear that the rest of the leaders weren't as keen on the dragon queen as they had been a few days ago. The final episode managed to deal with the fallout of the battle while providing fitting goodbyes to the show's vast swath of characters.
After Dany's speech, Tyrion approaches Dany. She knows that he freed Jaime before the battle, and he doesn't deny it. "I freed my brother, and you slaughtered a city," he tells her as he rips off his Hand of the Queen badge and throws it down the stairs. She has him taken into custody by the Unsullied as her and Jon share an ominous look.
After Dany's death, Drogon lands in the throne room. He sniffs his mother's body with Jon watching and in a fit of rage lets out a bale of fire. Instead of killing Jon though, the dragon melts the throne that was the cause of eight seasons of drama. Then the last of Dany's dragons lifts her body and flies away with it.
Bran tells Tyrion to be his hand. Tyrion says he doesn't want it and that he should pick someone like Davos. And Grey Worm says he is a criminal before Bran says he is absolved and will work off his crimes by serving the kingdom.
In the Red Keep, Tyrion heads below the castle hoping to find clues that his brother and sister got out. Instead he finds the cave-in and notices Jaime's golden hand buried under the rubble. As he tearfully pulls away the bricks, he finds the last of his family dead in each other's arms.
