Hey Dark Messiah Talk to me about Game of Thrones finale

What did you think? I didn't hate it as much as some of the internet, but I also didnt love it. Feels like the show is on a downhill slide.

GoT has always been a bit weird sitcom for my likings. I never made it past the 2nd episode.

Did I miss this or have I really not been back here in weeks.

I have a lot of thoughts. Let me try to suss some of them out.

Well first of all despite the cliff-hanger-iness, I think all the episode 10 death-ish-things are easy to figure out:

- Stannis is dead
- Myrcellae is dead
- Jon Snow is dead but will be ressed by Melisandre
- Sansa and almost certainly Theon are alive

Also there's been semi confirmation from word of god on almost all of these except Snow whom they're still pretending is permadead but I think you have to be an idiot to believe that basically.

Man that Walk of Shame was intense. I love Headey as an actress but I think some of the fans are going a little overboard.

1) FFS she's still Cersei, she's evil as fuck

2) Srsly are we going to pretend that NOW we suddenly think the Sparrows might be religious fundies? You remember this whole thing started with them rounding up and imprisoning/torturing all the gays right

Uhhh. Fuck Olly. I was surprise that Thorne turned traitor though. I guess at that point they really thought Snow was ruining the watch? But from what I gather this makes more sense in the books where Jon wants to have the Watch fight for Stannis, throwing away their neutrality. In the show he's helped Stannis a little but mainly they just seem pissed off that he's saving some wildlings so it seems less justified and more out of character for Thorne.

Everyone made fun of the "siege of Winterfell" anti-climax but I have to say that "no one notices huge armies approaching" has become a ridiculous common trope in general. I mean they did it in the last Hobbit movie, they did in last year's GoT for that matter where it was Stannis's army that the Wildlings never noticed lining up for a massive charge somehow. On the other hand you kind of want to forgive people taking some short cuts with large scale warfare.

I was always anti-Stannis but I have to say with the last few episodes and a full appreciation of his arc, without the shrill grunting of his Mannisian fanboys, I have more appreciation for how fucking sad and tragic his whole arc is. Like really, people talk about the Starks being beat up but man this whole series has been such a colossal tragedy for the whole Baratheon family and all three brothers, with no one basically alive in the family line except I guess Gendry now. I liked that last scene with Brienne especially. Brienne is just getting higher and higher in my estimations with every season, like she's one of my very favorite characters now and I think might end up being really one of THE main (at least non-Stark) characters.

I really want to see Theon and Sansa have a non-shitty time next season. Is Yara still around?

You know who I'm curious about actually is Hizdahr zo Loraq, I think that's the only actual cliffhanger death. He's probably just dead but on the other hand, who else are they going to have be the thorn in Tyrion's side when he's trying to rule? Hizdahr would be perfect for that. His lung-stabbing from the harpies clears him as pretty obviously not-traitor, but at the same time he's deeply conservative and tied to the old power structure of Mereen that Dany and presumably Tyrion hate but can't really get rid of, no matter how much she talks about breaking wheels.

I wonder if Jorah and Daario are going to kill each other.

Also I want really badly for there to be a frost-breathing wight dragon to fight Dany's living fire-breathing kind.

I'm glad you agree that CLEGANEBOWL IS CONFIRMED and are taking the appropriate steps to GET FUCKING HYPE.

I agree that Stannis is dead, and I agree that Jon Snow will probably come back in some capacity. I'm not sure that I agree that Myrcella is dead, just because she isn't in the books yet, and it's entirely possible that Bronn palmed some antidote at some point while futzing with the dirty-mouthed sand snakes.

Also certain that Sansa and Theon are still alive, and I'm guessing they will be heading to the Iron Isles. I believe the Greyjoys will play a much larger role next season. Next season could be crazy boring if they attempt to fill in some gaps that were left from the books, or it could be crazy cool if they forge on ahead into unknown waters. I'm excited to see what happens.

But I think we can all agree that Sansa either needs to evolve or die, this endless victim loop they've stuck her in is a bummer.

They could technically have Myrcellae survive, but if they were going to do that I don't think they would have handled it that way. Especially that touching father-daughter moment with Jaime.

I wonder what's going to happen to poor Trystane though. Odds are not in his favor.

Looking forward to more Greyjoy business next season yeah.

I'm also really anxious what's going to happen with the Tyrells. On the one hand they're actually the best positioned family in Westeros. They haven't lost anyone important so far, they have the most money, they have no real rivals for control left except the Lannisters who are a paper lion at this point, and an internally divided one at that...

On the other hand it's like Renly all over again. The Tyrells are best positioned and best suited to rule so clearly they're going to be fucked over hardcore.

Don't count out Kevan Lannister. He's only got a small role in this last season, but he's one of the few Lannisters besides Tywin who isn't so completely wrapped up in his own little world to see the big picture. He would actually make a decent ruler (at least, as he was portrayed in the books), if for no other reason than the fact that he's a Lannister who doesn't want to be a ruler.

But yeah, the Tyrells are in a position to grab power, although they are going to be temporarily distracted with the incarceration of their next generation. Honestly no house is doing very well right now.

Mainly I hope that we get to see the Giant beat some traitorous asses up at Castle Black. Hopefully assisted by Tormund. I'm not sure how Thorne thought he was going to contain all those pissed off wildlings when Jon was gone.
