Would either of them have gone over better with audiences?

    Those are almost as-bad choices. The Hound was barely a character by S8. Brienne has absolutely no ties to the White Walker storyline unless you want to somehow tie her vow to Catelyn Stark towards defeating the Night King to protect the Stark children.

      The problem with GoT in general is that you have a bunch of characters with completed arcs that stick around long after because theyre fan favorites and have frick all to do.

      Well, Jon was set up to be the one who defeats the Night King, so they just had to subvert your expectations, you know?

    Should have been Jorah

      It should have been Jon, but at least Jorah doing it would have been cool and felt more like an interesting subversion instead of the obvious carpet pull type of subversion that ~~*hollywood*~~ has become obsessed with.

      I though for sure it would have been Jamie. Kills the Mad King of Fire and Ice the true hero of GoT. Oh well.

        That would have been stupid though and was directly against what GOT was about. The series subverted normal fantasy tropes like that and was all about turning the usual expected things on their head.

    Should have been Jon Snow or Jamie else have a better option to defeat the dead that’s not shanking the main boss and cheesing the whole war.

    Jaime was supposed to strangle Cersei to death, become the Queenslayer, abandon all of his family possessions and knightly titles, and walk the lands as a one-handed hedge knight.

    If Jaime and Jon really aren't options for some dumb reason, I think Sam is probably the next best choice.
    He discovered dragon glass and saved Gilly from a white walker. He witnessed the kids being taken away. He has more of a white walker connection than Jon honestly. He even has a Valyrian steel sword and his family name to live up to.

    The Night King was a moronic concept in the first place. It should have just been a race of humanoids who ultimately come to an uneasy truce with the humans after they battle it out.

      No, the game of thrones is a tragedy of nobles squandering everything in the face of looming catastrophe. It is meant to have a bad ending. They mostly all die to the winter/white walkers due to their petty wars

        Obviously the Game of Thrones aspect is meant to showcase the futility of power struggles and how it's meant to lead into them being weakened and not prepared from a force of nature, but it's not as fatalistic as "Absolutely everybody is going to get slaughtered". Only the strongest will survive, but it'll likely be resolved from a way of negotiating a peace with The Others.

    Arya was the most realistic choice. She spent most of the show training to be an assassin and it's impossible to kill the Night King in a direct fight. Hell, she nearly failed the attempt and people here wanted Jaime, a literal cripple, to do it? Nah, Arya killing him was the only thing that made sense in the last eps
