Winter came and so did Jon Snow. It’s been at least 48 hours. I feel we can talk about this season’s final of Game of Thrones.
There was a lot that happened, but here’s what I consider the best moments of the season finale.
But here’s SPOILER WARNING just in case!
Bran Stark and Sam Tarly had the ultimate Sherlock Holmes and Watson moment. We now know the answer to biggest Game of Thrones mystery, “Who the hell is Jon Snow?”
As it turns out, Jon Snow knows absolutely nothing. His real name is actually Aegon Targaryen. It also turns out he’s the legitimate son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark, who wed in secret after Rhaegar’s first marriage was annulled. So Jon Snow is technically not a bastard and that whole “Rob’s rebellion” was a complete misunderstanding. Awwwkward!
Sandor “The Hound” and Grego “The Mountain” Clegane finally had the reunion we’ve all been waiting for, but it may not have been the Cleganebowl everyone was hoping for. However, the seeds are planted for a violent showdown in the final season.
Cersei does what she does best and screws everyone over. First, she refused an offer of a truce. Then changed her mind. Then changed her mind again revealing that has no intention of honoring it at all. That girl is digging her own grave. Just sayin’ Cersei’s brother *cough* lover Jaime finally reached snapping point with her crazy shenanigans. He defied his sister, lived to breathe another day and rode off into the distance.
Littlefinger got littlefingered in terrific form by The Stark sisters. Arya and Sansa played Lord Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish at his own game. The result? A slashed throat by the very blade that started the whole shit fight between everyone. Arya is definitely not a girl to piss of these days.
Theon Greyjoy metaphorically finally grew a pair and stood up to the latest in a long line of bullies he has had to face throughout the seasons. Are we getting a Yara rescue mission in the near future?
To tease us while we wait for season eight. The closing minutes saw The Night King riding on his newly adopted resurrected Ice Dragon, Viserion. Turns out the once dead dragon breathes a blue flame which looks like it’ll destroy anything, also making his siblings look pretty piss-weak in comparison.
Oh yeah, The Wall is down. Which reminds me, we need to talk about Beric and Tormund. While we don’t actually see them die on screen, they were pretty high up on that wall. In a world where zombies can’t swim but can pull a giant dead dragon out of a frozen lake, I want to have hope that these two survived.
But let’s be honest. Jon Snow’s peachy ass really stole the show. Kit Harrington definitely shows why squats are important. Finally, Jon and Daenerys got down and dirty in what might be one of the most visually pleasing scenes of the series.
Let’s just forget the fact that it’s actually sex between a King and his Aunty. Those Targaryen really do like to keep it in the family.
Bring on season eight!
