Did ‘Parks and Recreation’ Predict ‘Game of Thrones’ Ending?
We all think that Simpsons is the one show that has predicted every single detail of mankind and its adventures on earth. We have memes of it where the show even predicted ending for Game of Thrones. However, we believe that another show did this back in 2015, and it was pretty accurate. Parks and Recreation, a seven-season NBC sitcom, made some hilarious dialogues over Game of Thrones which we think can link to its ending.
The epic story wrapping final season, which made us wait for two years, turned into such a mess that we still are not over it. The final season of Game of Thrones should have given us so many revelations and storyline closures. Yet we still seek answers and hope for its Spin-off show to give us some. But we are not here for that, now are we?
Parks and Recreation Knew Game of Thrones Ending Would Disappoint
Parks and Recreation knew what monstrosity was waiting to fall upon us. Although the final season aired in 2015, the show’s storyline leapt three years into the future. Amy Poehler (as Leslie Knope) served as the Midwest Regional Parks Director. Nick Offerman (as Ron Swanson) seemed to be no longer friends with Leslie and started his own construction company called “Very Good”.
As the season proceeded, Leslie and Ron’s rivalry grew until others decided to step in. They locked the duo in the old office of the Parks Department until they could sort out their issues. At this point, Leslie pleaded with Ben to open the door. She cried,
“Game of Thrones is on tonight, it’s the series finale! Khaleesi is marrying Jack Sparrow. God, that show has really gone off the rails.”
Now that seems interesting looking at how accurate she predicted all this. With so many fans disappointed in the ending of Game of Thrones, we can safely call it “gone off the rails”, as Leslie said.
She also said that Khaleesi (Emilia Clarke) was going to marry Jack Sparrow. Now, even though that seems absurd, perhaps if we look at Jack Sparrow as a pirate it would make things simpler? Euron Greyjoy sure gave pirate vibes.
Euron married a very major female role in the storyline, Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) although it was not Khaleesi herself. Still, it was a fairly accurate estimation.
