Septa Unella's cos-players and the shame bell will be invading comic con this year!
Game of Thrones final season was, lightly putting, a significant disappointment. It didn't so much as halved the fan base it just destroyed the trust and faith the viewers had in the writers and creators of the show. But mainly it turned David Benioff and D.B. Weiss from the sweethearts of the Game of Thrones fan community to the most hated person on planet earth.
At this point, it is hard to figure out another duo that is more hated than the two creators of Game of Thrones. Don't take our word for it, go on Google and search 'bad writers,' the first image you will see is of D.B. Weiss and David Benioff. Do you know how much hate you need to generate to have your picture come up on top of a Google search? Facilitated by angry fans continually using the term, so Google relates the words 'bad writers' with the image.
Now that is some next level anger right there by fans of the show that felt scorned by the final six episodes. Ever since the airing of the last season finished on HBO, fans were waiting for a moment to pour their anger on the creators of the show. It seems as though the moment is about to arrive for the fans of the show.
It seems Game of Thrones cast and creators are headed to comic-con for one final appearance. What probably would've been a victory lap for the creators of the show, now is turning into a battle of wits among fans as to how to embarrass the creators of the show.
The subreddit thread of Game of Thrones is washed with ideas to make fun of the creators of the show, ranging from laughing at their every word, to dressing up as 'Septa Unella' and ringing the bell and saying shame. The creators must have balls of stones to show up in front of what will most certainly be an angry mob of fans, who once worshiped them.
One of the funniest comments on the subreddit thread was by AWildEnglishman, who said, "Maybe upon hearing the bells they'll flip out and burn down the convention for no reason. That'd be unexpected."
According to HBO, Game of Thrones will be bringing some cast members to Hall H again this year.
Jacob Anderson (Grey Worm), John Bradley (Samwell Tarly), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth), Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei of Naath), Iain Glen (Ser Jorah Mormont), Conleth Hill (Varys), Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) and Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark)
The cast is sure to get a standing ovation, but the fun will start when the creators of the show make their way on the stage.

Though there are many plans to ruin the entrance and the talks of the creators, if we were going in into Hall H, we wouldn't expect much criticism to flow the way of the creators. The moderator, which has not been announced yet, will probably be moderate towards the show and the creators. HBO and D&D almost always talk to friendly writers and people who will be mild towards them.
So, don't expect an extensive Q&A session where you get to criticize the creators of the show and the way the show ended. More than likely this comic con appearance will be a victory lap for the creators as they try to get the audience on their side by reminiscing about some of the favorite moments of the past.
People pressing your Septa Unella dresses and polishing your shame bells, be ready to be cut off, not allowed into the hall, or just outright ignored. The show played with the emotions of the fans in the final season, which was always going to feel rushed but still, as fans who have dedicated almost ten years to the show, you deserve to be heard.

It is a democracy, so fans, get your pitchforks ready and head on over to Hall H when comic con starts in mid-July. Make your voices heard, air your disappointment, and talk it out with the creators. They will most likely give you answers where they lump themselves with the actors to counter shame the fans.
Comic-con with the creators of the show is going to be both fun and weird. It is going to be fun to see how HBO censors the fans and how they avoid the tough questions, that is bound to come their way. As for now, all we can do is wait for the comic-con, which is in about half a month.
