A Look into the “Game of Thrones” Season 6 Finale
Game of Thrones currently finished airing it's sixth season.
Victim number one - down! Lord Walder Frey was served revenge with a dish best served cold... with his children? That's right. Arya put one of her many-to-come faces to use in the House of Black and White. This was probably the last place I would expect Arya to be so quickly. But after a short confrontation with Jamie Lannister, we were all pretty glad that Arya came to shove a sharp object square in the throat of Lord Frey. Here's to hoping that she feeds everyone their children before killing them because, well..... That would just make Arya the darkest of the Starks yet. And the Starks need some revenge in their house.
Time to wake up Dorne! The return of the snake ladies is bitter-sweet. But what a way to do it! Hello Varys! I see you were hiding in a dark corridor as always. This resolution opened up our eyes to realizing that Varys was actually in cahoots with Dorne to destroy the Lannisters. Not as loyal to the throne as we thought! So with a swift transition between scenes, we were able to peek into the future and into the past. Well done, Game of Thrones. Nothing negative about this scene!!!
We were finally able to see Davos lay into Melisandre about Shireen's death. After finding a wooden animal on the battlefield that was given to Shireen by Davos, it was all downhill from there. Davos waited until after the battle when he had The Lady in Red and Jon Snow together, in which he demanded for execution. What kind of man would Jon Snow be if he put his reviver to death? That answer is along the lines of a great one!
There's a long list of reasons that Daenerys should be on the Iron Throne by tomorrow. Let's just take a moment to acknowledge that SHE'S FINALLY OUT OF MEREEN. You would think with dragons that you would have left and come back eighteen times just for fun. It's almost odd though that we were able to see just how overpowered her forces are now. Dragons, Unsullied, Dothraki, hundreds of ships including Iron Born captains to sail them, and a Tyrion Lannister. It makes it seem crystal clear that no force at the moment could match up to hers... So what will be waiting for us in season 7 that is going to match up with this seemingly invincible League of Extrordinary Dragon-Tamers? Possibly something to do with Winter?
Even in death we all knew that there was no better fit for Winterfell's throne than Jon Snow. Heck, even as a white walker we would all still gladly except Mr. Snow as the rightful heir to the throne. So he isn't Ned's son. That's not news to us even though they finally revealed that in this finale. But now that he is finally there, the real question is- Winter is coming...So just how cold will it be?
If you can't remember back to ye olden days - that's right, we're talking Season 1 - then you wouldn't remember one of the reasons that the mad king was betrayed and murdered by his Hand of the King. And you also wouldn't remember that the Hand of the King was none other than Jamie Lannister. But one of the main reasons was... HE WAS MAD! He intended to burn King's Landing to the ground if he didn't get his way and for that reason, Jamie Lannister, along with Eddard Stark, "removed" the king from power permanently. Unfortunately, the neon green ooze that would have been used to light King's Landing on fire wasn't removed which resulted in the human barbecue of some important characters; the High Sparrow, Margaery, and even Tommen. Before, we feared Cersei for her persistent search of vengence and we knew she would stop at nothing less than revenge for the sake of her children. But now with no children to spare, it is truly a mystery in what will motivate Cersei to stay at "supreme villain" status.
As much as we were all hoping for the reveal of Jon Snow's parents, we were once again left to our imagination and whispers. We were given just enough of a glimpse to keep us on the edge. So, let the theories ride high as alway-but they really are pushing the R+L=J idea. We have all year long to keep guessing, hoping, and crossing our fingers.
The thought of the High Sparrow finally biting the dust was a grand plot and was Margaery was surely added into that ordeal to make us feel CONFUSED. The hardest thing to comprehend during these moments was whether to be happy the High Sparrow was gone or sad that Margaery was gone as well. Unfortunately, the young king had a tragic ending as well. Thumbs up to you though, Tommen! You managed to finally take things into your own hands and show your mother that she can't control every decision you make.
We all know that Jon Snow is king now, but Littlefinger is a man with an elaborative imagination filled with a plethora of plans in his "mind arsenal." It's easy to see that there will be trouble shortly following Snow's entitlement. It may take some time to make a move with nearly every house in the North backing Jon Snow as the new king of Winterfell, but what better way to betray somebody than insisting that they need to be more trusting of each other? (That's right. Taking a stab at Sansa!)
Jon Snow's lack of leadership - Time and time again we see that Snow lacks the decision making power to make the right moves. He is too king-hearted and it cost him his life already. How many times is he going to give in to "being the nice guy" before he realizes that IS NOT WHAT A RULER DOES. Poor Shireen will not be avenged like Ser Davos intended. Let's just hope that Davos doesn't lose respect for Jon Snow.
