‘Game of Thrones’: The feminine mystique

Game of Thrones
“The Winds of Winter”
June 26, 2016

The season finale was filled with everything we expected: R+L = J; the North uniting; Arya giving Walder Frey exactly what he deserved; Sam going to the Citadel; Cersei having a final showdown with the Faith Militant; Tommen fulfilling Cersei’s prophecy; Daenerys on her way to Westeros to take it back once and for all; and winter has FINALLY come, amirite, Ned Stark? And something I don’t think anyone predicted — Cersei taking the Iron Throne for herself. Girl, I need one of those black leather dresses.

‘Game of Thrones’: Yas, Queens

Game of Thrones
“Battle of the Bastards”
June 19, 2016

Alright, so the Battle of the Bastards was amazing, no doubt, but the real story this week is how sisters are doing it for themselves. Sansa, Daenerys and Yara: none of them are playing, y’all. Look out, Westeros, because these ladies are getting in formation and they slay. They got hot sauce in their bag, swag, indeed. DAMN.

“No One”

And as fast as The Hound could massacre a group of bandits with nothing but an axe and a bone to pick, two popular fan theories are now dead. R.I.P. Fan Theories. It was fun while it lasted.

Game of Thrones
“Blood of My Blood”
May 29, 2016

“The Door”

TIME LOOPS? ARE YOU KIDDING ME??

I KNEW IT. I knew it, I knew it, I knew it, I KNEW IT. I KNEW IT. I mean, I didn’t know HODOR, but I knew it.

UGH. WHY DIDN’T I WRITE IT?

‘Game of Thrones’: This girl is on fire

 

Game of Thrones
“Book of the Stranger”
May 15, 2016

This episode had everything: reunions, good feels, romance, Sansa being a badass, death, FIRE!, fire boobs, dead misogynists, and hopefully the birth of what will be everyone’s new favorite ship: Torienne. Or Briemund? Which do you like better? I’m leaning toward Briemund, myself. BRIEMUND 4LYFE.
