I know that with GoT, you gain a little - you lose a lot.But this season has been so draining, I feel like it may almost be enough for people to quit watching.From Sansa's rape, to Shireen's burning to the deaths of the two somewhat honest men in the finale - this seasons hasn't given anyone too many wins. Stannis - his end was fitting, and brienne was able to finally fulfill part of her duty. The amount of frustration at the candle burning scene was excruciating. Sansa&Theon- because I do believe we can call him Theon once again, I have a feeling both will survive. Jon- from what I can tell of the book readers and Melisandre's convenient entry, I do believe there is a chance at his resurrection. But it is GoT, chances are he's dead. They haven't pulled many fake-outs since Bran's fall. Arya - with her going blind, it sure feels like the Stark's are once again dropping like flies. What is it with this family? There is so much ambiguity around Braavos and I do hope some of it will be resolved next season, none of it makes too much sense - sure Arya has to be noone, but what does that even entail? Cersei - She looked truly broken, but she's not going to change - not ever. I'm convinced she will come back with a vengeance, specially after Myrcella's death. Tyrion&Varys- looks like the only people in the whole show coming out on top! looking forward to them ruling a city together. Daenerys - well, to be honest I do hope she is captured. I've kind of had enough of dany sort of standing around doing nothing and being 'special' for the most part only by virtue of her birth. Yes, she has done a lot of things, but this season she's been more than a little hopeless and I hope she can finally get some of her fire back.
On to the rest of the show, Arya - I think by saying she can be 'someone' implies that she can transform into at least one person? Just not multiple, not yet anyway. I am glad she's getting answers, I pray and pray for those doors to open. I was worried when she approached that girl I thought she was going to get into trouble. At the end of it, if she's only lying about her identity I don't get the logic of the many faced god, what about the ideal of truth? Tyrion - Will his dialogues ever stop being brilliant? We're all aching for his scene with Dany, I just hope it doesn't come in the last episode as a cliffhanger, that would be disappointing. I don't want to wait a year. Jaime, Bronn, Sandsnakes - poisoned spear anyone? Don't kill Bronn, got - thanks. It was unexpected to have them both enter at the same time - that scene felt like something I would wish for, not what got usually gives me. Ramsay - I wish you a painful death. Cersei - Someone's about to get bested by the High Sparrow. Honestly, there's no way this doesn't turn on her? The city loves the queen, as does the king. Margery may not be much a match for you Cersei, but Olenna Tyrell? Can someone declare war on House Lannister already? They don't have very much money, nor allies. Here's looking at you Stannis. Speaking of, it's sad how they're splitting so much and each episode has characters missing. This episode was slow, and boring. Bad writing all round.
I encourage everyone to go read the Vanity Fair article on Sansa. They seem to turn every non-rape from the books into a rape in the show Cersei, now Sansa. It's the writers and their misogyny.That scene was brutalizing to watch and disgusting at best. Using Sansa's rape as just another way to knock a sense of identity into a male character.. no thankyou.Honestly, I almost want to quit watching if this is the kind of bullshit they're throwing our way.Anyone else think D&D need to be fired?
