Read this before you pass: Hi! Thanks for taking out time to read my post. Now, there are some things that I wanna tell you well in advance.Firstly, I haven't read the books, so any kind of spoilers will not be appreciated. Secondly, my views and opinions are totally based on what I truly believe in, but you're free to share your views too. Lastly, if you get easily offended then maybe you should look somewhere else. If you're still reading then go on and have fun!
The season finale was a dead-fest, literally. Just when I had thought that GoT has stopped killing its characters, the finale sure did a hell of a job in reassuring me on how wrong I was. Still, it was a pretty badass episode with a lot of things happening. Here's my list of the Top 10 moments from Game of Thrones, season finale.
1. Stannis' death.
After the 9th episode, the internet was flooded with all the hatred for Stannis, which was right. At this point in the show, he had become a helpless and a needy king which Westeros doesn't really need at all. He was resorting to magic which had proven effective for him in the past, but not anymore. He let Melisandre use his daughter as a sacrifice, his wife committed suicide, half of his army left (seriously, who would follow a king who would burn his own child?) and he still attacked Moat Cailin. In the beginning of the series, he was shown as a brilliant military officer. But this time, he let his pride get in the way of his judgement and he lead his army into the mouth of death itself.
2. Theon's return.
I was half expecting Reek to do something drastic when Ramsay "consummated" his marriage with Sansa and forced Theon to watch. Then, he betrayed her and I had very little hope that he'd be back to his original senses. But in the finale, by helping Sansa, he made a return. Also, Alfie Allen's acting was truly noteworthy in this season.
3. Arya's revenge.
We finally get to see Arya as the faceless assassin. Her cold-blooded revenge showed how much she has transformed since she left Winterfell. Although, she turning blind was kinda a bummer.
4. Myrcella's death.
I personally have no opinion of Myrcella. She died before I could've had an opinion whatsoever. I'm just curious to know what repercussions will her death have in the GoT universe? Since, Cersei's back (discussed later in the post) and Jamie seeing another one of his children die, I don't think the Lannisters are gonna take this lightly. The Lions are gonna Roar so loud that it'll be heard till Dorne itself.
5. Tyrion's role in Meereen.
Okay! So, Daenerys leaves everyone as she escapes with Drogon and I'm sitting here thinking-" Why didn't she take Tyrion with her? He wasn't gonna take much space anyway. Besides, they took almost 3 episodes for these two (Dany and Tyrion) to meet only to separate them in the finale?!"But, in the end, he has a good position as the ruler of Meereen, which suits him and for what it's worth, he deserves to be a ruler! All right, I'm done fanboying.
6. Daenerys' Adventure.
Her escape from the Fighting pits was just EPIC! I mean, there's no point of having a show with dragons if nobody's gonna ride 'em. But now, she's on this unknown land where Drogon bought her, surrounded by the Dothraki yet again. I think she plans to marry another Khal as she took off her ring. What lies ahead in the path of the Mother of Dragons is an enigma. Great work with the CGI dragon though!
7. Cersei's Walk of Shame.
I'll admit it, I hated her the entire series as much I hated Joffrey (and that's saying a lot), but for the first time ever, I felt sympathy for her. She was just an over-protective mother who was bad at politics. That's pretty much like normal mothers, right?
8. This guy though...
I believe this huge guy is the result of Qyburn's "research". He looks inhuman. Although, the look in his eyes speaks vengeance. Qyburn was working on The Mountain's corpse and I believe that he has resurrected him. What? It's hard to believe? Well, this show has dragons and White walkers and what not, so don't give me this "not believable" crap.
9. Fake God?
Melisandre is surely taken aback when her God fails her. Her sacrifice has been fruitless. Stannis loses and she flees. She has been quite confident in the entire series, up until now. I just wish she'd use her magic for good this time (get the hint?).
10. Jon getting stabbed, just like us...
I saved the best one for last. Up until now, the story kept revolving around him. But now, they just kill him? Just like that? Even though this series doesn't have a protagonist, it was my belief that Jon Snow was the one that completely fit the criteria for a protagonist. He's a bastard, his stepmother despises him, most of his relatives are dead, but he's still good at heart and also a remarkable warrior (typical hero material).
I couldn't help but notice one thing though, they didn't burn him. While it's customary to burn someone to prevent them from turning into a Wight, how can the hateful Castle Black people take such a huge risk?
I really hope he doesn't die. Maybe, Melisandre could help? Or maybe he may turn into a good-wight? The possibilities are endless. I guess we'll just have to wait for season 6 to find that out.
My next post is gonna be an entire season review, make sure to check it out in a couple of days.Also, feel free to comment your views on this one. I know,I couldn't have possibly covered everything.
Until next time, readers!
