As you may have heard, Sunday marks the last episode of HBO's Game of Thrones--and people are upset about it, for different reasons. Thousands of fans are calling for the disappointing final season to be redone, while others simply don't want the fantasy to end. (Perhaps these two groups have more in common than they'd like to admit.) For those who are truly dreading Game of Thrones' impending ending, the British website has launched a show-specific counseling service to help fans deal with its demise. “Game of Thrones is one of the most popular TV programs of our time, so I’m not surprised that people are devastated it’s going to end,” Kai Feller, co-founder of, tells Reuters. “I think there will be a fair amount of superfans out there who will need to chat with a professional when the show ends.”
