'The last of the Starks' is the lowest rated Game of Thrones episode ever on IMDB?

Interesting A- A A+

It was always going to be hard for the latest episode of Game of Thrones, ‘The Last of the Starks’, to follow the previous episode and not only do right by those who were left perturbed by it, but to also keep up the momentum for those who loved it. It doesn’t look like it’s managed either: the third episode of Game of Thrones’ eighth and final season is the lowest rated in the show’s history on IMDb.

Currently sitting at a 7.0/10* on IMDb from 47.477 reviews at this time of writing, criticisms levied at ‘The Last of the Starks’ are numerous. Almost all of the written reviews we saw were negative, and focus on characters completely forgetting, well, their character, terrible decision making from major players who should be smarter, and coincidence after coincidence piling up on top of lazy writing.

It’s a significant step down from the ratings the other seventy episodes of the show have received, which never ducked below 8/10 across all its seasons. Every single episode bar one of Season 7 (which many fans believe was rushed) managed a 9 or above on IMDb. Worst of all, even ‘Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken‘ from Season 5 (the terrible, terribleDorne episode) is better reviewed than ‘The Last of the Starks’ with an 8.1/10.

While there’s still time for ‘The Last of the Starks’ to get over its early nosedive, it’s not looking good for the episode. With two episodes of the show left in total and a seriously annoyed fanbase left to contend with, it’s not looking great for Game of Thrones overall to conclude in a way that befits it, either.

As for our opinion on the episode, any show that leaves its best character so brutally unpetted should be immediately shot with a big bloody arrow from a ship that comes out of nowhere.
