Four years after the end of the popular HBO series game of Thrones fans are still shaking their heads at the outcome of the fantasy series. The final and eighth season rushed through the story like a whirlwind and left behind many dissatisfied fans who to this day cannot understand the decisions of the series makers. In the age of AI, this is slowly but surely becoming a thing of the past. For anyone who would have liked to see a different ending to Game of Thrones ChatGPT conjured an alternate ending. Is that so much better?
Don’t like the end of a series? ChatGPT handles that
In recent months, the AI chatbot ChatGPT developed by Open AI has become very popular. The chatbot can write understandable and even creative texts within a few seconds on simple requests. He writes essays, spits out recipes at you, and on top of that writes a new ending for the final season of Game of Thrones.
The latter was presented by Open AI Chairman Greg Brockman during a panel at the SXSW Festival. He sees ChatGPT as a group of “assistants”while not perfect, but “zealous and tireless” the “chore” of writing and programming. On top of that, they should also “interactive” provide entertainment experience.
“This is what entertainment will look like. Maybe people are still upset about the final season of Game of Thrones. Imagine asking your artificial intelligence to write a new ending that takes a different path, and maybe yourself even bring it in as a main character or something.”
ChatGPT rewrites Game of Thrones finale
In the meantime, some fans have had the end of Game of Thrones rewritten by ChatGPT. Here’s an alternate version from Reddit-User XxdejavuxX:
“In the final episode of Season 8, the battle for the Iron Throne comes to a climax as Daenerys Targaryen and her army, aided by Jon Snow and the remaining Stark troops, face off against Cersei Lannister and her army of loyalists.
The battle is brutal and both sides suffer heavy casualties. In the end, Jon Snow manages to kill Cersei, but not before she mortally wounds Daenerys.
As Daenerys lies dying, she asks Jon to ascend the Iron Throne and rule in her place. Jon hesitates, but eventually agrees to do what he believes is best for the kingdom.
After the war, the survivors of the battle gather in King’s Landing to rebuild and usher in a new era of peace. Jon is proclaimed the new king, and Sansa Stark is made his queen. The Starks, Targaryens and Lannisters form a council to rule the Seven Kingdoms to create a more just society.
As they look out over the city, they are reminded that while the game of thrones may be over, the struggle for power and control will never truly end.”
Would that have been a better ending for the series? It definitely sounds more plausible than what actually happened. Again, it’s hard to believe that Jon and Sansa would rule together in the end.
