The Game of Thrones series finale divided fan opinion like never before and was heavily criticized for its writing. With the huge impact the show has had on popular culture, its no wonder people have strong opinions, and that includes the show’s stars. Natalia Tena, who portrayed the wildling Osha until Season 6 is one.
Speaking on Yahoo’s White Wine Question Time podcast, Tena revealed that the ending left her so enraged that her boyfriend left the houseboat they were sharing at the moment to escape her rants!
Describing the experience, Tena said, “I was a few glasses of wine in when I watched it. I’d binge-watched the whole thing, but I ended up… my boyfriend had to leave the boat because I was ranting for an hour at him about how much I didn’t like it. And then I rang my friend to rant to him.”
Tena revealed that she liked the story up until the point when Arya kills the Night King, but it all went downhill from there. Like many fans, she holds the writing of the last few episodes to blame. In her words,
“I liked it to the bit where she [Arya] stabs him [the Night King] in the heart. I liked it up to then. But after that, I just feel like… I just didn’t understand. The calibre of writing towards the end and the plots and everything that happens and how they wrapped it up compared to any other season, any other bit, it just feels like it’s been written by different people. It doesn’t make sense, for me.”
Tena, however, doesn’t hold with petitioning to remake the final season, as some disgruntled fans are doing. She said,
“It’s done. I don’t think I’d go as far as a petition. I think they had to end it. [But] I don’t understand why they made those choices.”
