Game of Thrones stars slam media 'hate campaign'

So part of me was glad to see them reunited, interacting with each other and celebrating all the good a show like Game of Thrones has brought them and us fans. Back in April, the final season of HBO's epic fantasy series hit the airwaves, and it didn't take too long before the backlash became apparent.

According to Vulture, Entertainment Weekly writer James Hibberd moderated the event which was centered around fans' "burning questions".

However, there were still quite a few cast members in Hall H, with Maisie Williams (Arya Stark), Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth), Raleigh Ritchie (Greyworm), John Bradley West (Samwell Tarly), and Conleth Hill (Varys) joining the Hall H celebration.

Hill finally confirmed that Varys was, in fact, plotting against the Mother of Dragons in Game of Thrones Season 8 and that he somehow accepted his fate if he failed.

He described the fan response to the show over the years as extremely positive, referring to the negativity as a 'media-led hate campaign'. Coster-Waldau said, "The absurdity of the online petition".

He said it made more sense to cut rates by a smaller increment now and hold out the possibility of additional moves later. When adjusted for inflation, the neutral rate is near the Fed's current policy rate, which is in a range of 2.25-2.50%.

Rogen took things a step further when explaining that he and the Preacher team "100 percent" went into the fourth season of the show knowing it would be the final one. Because that's the power of the internet!

It's worth noting that although fans were not particularly pleased with the final season - it now has a 33 percent audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes - the last batch of episodes also received negative reviews from professional critics from all over. He referenced the Red Wedding and the death of Ned Stark as moments in the show that were also angering for fans. And obviously, the end. I feel so lucky to have met so many people and so many fans of this show; it has brought so many people together. It's the end! But at the end of the day, it's absolutely fine. When the audience booed at that, he offered, "That's just my opinion, but to me the scene with Gwendoline Christie when she fills in the blanks in the book was really handsome and I think it showed her understanding of Jaime and her love of Jaime and I thought it was a attractive scene".

For Cunningham it was "Nothing fucks you harder than time". It's going to (tick) you off no matter what, it's the end.

And of course, Hill had to ease some tension by cracking a joke that had the whole room laughing.

"I think it's a wonderful thing".
