Game of Thrones' series finale wasn't just divisive on social media. It was divisive among readers of this site as well.

Following the airing of season 8 episode 6 'The Iron Throne', Digital Spy asked if you loved or hated the conclusion to HBO's fantasy epic – and the vote was fairly split. But more people were disappointed than pleased.
