Curtain Closes on "Game of Thrones," and Now Our Watch Has Ended

It took me several days to wrap my head around how I felt about the “Game of Thrones” series finale, and then it hit me—to produce something thought-provoking enough to still be a topic of discussion among millions nearly a week later is to produce something epic, regardless of the nature of those thoughts.

A lot of the disappointment among fans stems from the fact that we ...
