Did you guys enjoy last night’s “Game of Thrones” season finale? A perhaps-surprising number of TV critics did not, per RottenTomatoes.com’s compilation.
“The Dragon and the Wolf” is currently the HBO series’ worst-reviewed season finale to date, sitting at a still-strong 87 percent Fresh rating. That number could go up or down as more reviews trickle in.
At the time of this writing, RottenTomatoes counted 23 reviews, assigning the “Fresh” column to 20 of them and the “Rotten” one to the remaining three. Admittedly, the site’s interpretations of full-fledged reviews, ones which often don’t actually offer a quantifier, are imperfect at times.
Of the prior six “Game of Thrones” season finales, four had perfect scores, per the review-aggregation website. The other two season-ending episodes only had one “Rotten” review apiece — so let’s call out who ruined the perfect scores, shall we?
The Season 2 miss came courtesy of Hitfix.com’s Alan Sepinwall, while Season 5’s finale lost its perfect rating thanks to Libby Hill of Salon.com. But be nice to them on Twitter anyway, dear readers.
Here’s how “The Dragon and the Wolf’s” 87 percent looks next to the other season finales:
Season 1: 100%
Season 2: 92%
Season 3: 100%
Season 4: 100%
Season 5: 97%
Season 6: 100%
Season 7: 87%
