I’m so sad, 3.5 readers.
One of my favorite shows will soon come to an end…next summer…because they’re making us all wait.
I have to say I have been long waiting for the big, final battle over King’s Landing between the Lannisters and the Khaleesi. I always assumed that would come first and then the winner would face the White Walkers.
Not so fast as there was a truce. The Dragon Queen and the Bitchy Queen will hold onto their menstruations for now in order to face the greater white walker threat.
Not exactly the outcome I was hoping for, but perhaps it will pay off in the next season.
I feel a little cheated that these seasons are shorter, but I’ll wait and see. Perhaps the showrunners know what they are doing.
For a moment, it was looking like there would be a sad showdown between Sansa and Arya, only to see them turn on Littlefinger. Unlike the Internet, I was sad to see Littlefinger go. All of the other characters were born into their wealth and prestige. Littlefinger actually had to work for it. Sure, he was a douche, but when you only have yourself to rely on, you have to be that much douchier.
During the truce scene, I kept waiting for Cersei to spring a trap. Maybe all her guests would be killed ala the Red Wedding but nope, no cigar.
The big secret of the show is revealed. Jon Snow is not a bastard. He is the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyana Stark. That means as the oldest male Targaryen he is the rightful ruler of Westeros and oh yeah, since he didn’t know and boned the Khaleesi, he is now an Auntie fucker.
Oh well. The Targaryens keep it in the family.
Wasn’t it sad to see the Wall go? It’s been a menacing presence for years only for a damn fire breathing zombie dragon to make short work of it.
What’s next, 3.5 readers?
