But none of the previous trailers or photos have shown even a glimpse of the mysterious second half of the final season. In a recent cover story, EW went behind the scenes of the battle episode and detailed the cast and crew’s Herculean efforts to pull it off.

As we look forward to (or perhaps just brace for) Sunday's Game of Thrones finale, thousands of fans have already thrown in the towel on the showrunners' version of Season 8 and are demanding HBO give someone else have a shot at bringing the series to a satisfying conclusion.

More than 16,000 people have now signed an unlikely, fantastical Change.org petition demanding a remake of the final season with someone else holding the keys to the adaptation of George R.R. Martin's still-unfinished A Song of Ice and Fire series.

"David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (i.e. the books) to fall back on," the petition's originator wrote. "This series deserves a final season that makes sense. Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!"

The backlash against Game of Thrones' final season has become increasingly intense ever since the third episode of the abbreviated season, "The Long Night," proved to be too dark for some viewers to enjoy and felt anticlimactic to others, who complained that the long-awaited clash with the Night King failed to live up to the hype.

Since then, the series has sustained criticism from its fanbase for everything from a clumsily overlooked coffee cup to its out-of-character moments for fan favorites to the many unsatisfying deaths that have come along to its irresponsible dialogue about sexual assault. Most recently, the series' penultimate episode, "The Bells," proved to be extremely upsetting for a large segment of viewers due to the breakneck speed with which it turned Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) into a "burn them all"-style monster after showing her as a war hero who risked everything to protect the innocent just two episodes beforehand.

Apart from petitioning and many, many memes, fans have also expressed their dismay in other ways. Shortly after "The Bells" aired, Game of Thronesfans on Reddit "Google-bombed" a picture of the showrunners so that they'd show up in an image search of the words "bad writers."

Game of Thrones' audience numbers haven't suffered in the new season -- in fact, "The Bells" was the show's highest-rated episode ever -- but as the negativity continues the dominate the conversation about this season, and more fans add their names to petitions like this one, it's clear Game of Thrones may not join the list of series that managed to stick the landing in the end.

Game of Thrones' series finale airs Sunday, May 19 at 9/8c on HBO.
