Warning: Spoilers for Game of Thrones' sixth season are included! You've been warned.
Game of Thrones ended its extremely epic Season 6 in the greatest way possible. This season is highly regarded as one of the show's greatest and with good reason. Everything from the resurrection of Jon Snow, to the Battle of the Bastards was epic in every way. Fresh off one of the most tense, most emotional episodes of the series, the season finale proved that it can always up the ante.
We witnessed a new era for the land of Westeros. Yes, we witnessed Jon Snow reclaim Winterfell but something much greater is upon us: Two very prominent women came into great power and it's already making me excited for a great Season 7.
Cersei Has Reclaimed the Iron Throne
In Godfather-like fashion, Cersei Lannister murdered Queen Tyrell and Ser Loris while also defeating her enemy, the High Sparrow. One of the most intense opening scenes in the series showed Cersei nearly burning King's Landing to the ground in order to reclaim her dominance.
All of this led to her son, King Tommen, plunging himself from the castle, committing suicide in defeat. Quite sickening to be honest, but Cersei has never been known for her kindness. We are now in the age of Cersei, a time we have been waiting for the last six seasons. While her reign will undoubtably be an impressive one, there is a much more prominent figure on the way and she has some help.
Daenerys Has an Army and She Is On Her Way to Westeros
In a crazy turn of events, Daenerys has a stronger army than ever before. She has her trustworthy Unsullied, Yara's troops from the Iron Islands, and the newly committed Dothraki, but there's even more: The final scene of the season finale showed Daenerys and her army sailing to Westeros to claim the Iron Throne with the help of the Martells and Tyrells. Those two houses along with the rest make for an extremely formidable force.
From Victims To Conquerers: Women Are In Charge Now
This final episode showed off the capabilities of the great women on this show. Not only the two Queens — Cersei and Daenerys — but also the two Stark girls, who showed they will be great leaders.
Sansa has the support of the North along with Jon, and Arya is having her way getting revenge for the misdeeds against her family. We are seeing a great change in Game of Thrones that is truly epic. Jon Snow reclaimed his right as King in the North, Bran is the Three-Eyed Raven, and the Battle of the Queens is about to take place. It is truly an amazing time to be a Game of Thrones fan.
