Has Game of thrones finally gone too far?
18 Jun 2015
Have you ever watched a finale with the most ridiculously small amount of anything being actually final, than the Game of Thrones finale? And not only that, if you were hoping to finally see some justice for some people, you would be majorly disappointed!
After watching last seasons finale, I remember thinking ‘How the hell am I going to be able to wait until April 2015?? But after watching this one, I can honestly say, I don’t think I will bother watching season 6.
Firstly, I will just mention that I have not read the books, so if you have, you might find my lack of knowledge a little bit annoying.
If you watched last weeks episode, you may still be traumatised, like I am, that Stannis let that witch kill his daughter to give them ‘good favour’ with the gods. This doesn’t happen in the books, but apparently the writer George R. R. Martin wrote it into the TV show. Just a tad unnecessary I think!
Far out, it was horrible! I nearly didn’t watch the finale because of that.
When Stannis then died in the finale, at least it felt like there was a little bit of karma coming to fruition.
Then there was Sansa and Reek. They kind of run off together, but it doesn’t show them safe or anything. I don’t even know where they went. Reek might have run with her straight to Ramsay for all we know and dobbed on her again! Who knows! I personally would’ve liked to see something a bit more final, especially since it was a finale…
I want to know what happened to Margaery? I hope she knew that Cersei was locked up too, it might’ve given her a little bit of satisfaction. And what about her Grandmother, Olenna Tyrell? She was a bit of a legend, especially since she killed Joffrey. But we didn’t get to see her again, or her grandson.
The cutting of Cerseis hair and her walk of shame was done really well. You could really imagine how mortifying it would be to go through that. Finally, something resembling a little bit of justice for everything she has done!
Was it just me, or did you spend the entire time saying to yourself ‘When Cersi is free, you are all totally dead!!’ ?
I would’ve liked to see Cersei show some kind of remorse, I don’t believe the tears were remorse at all, but I am sure that is never going to happen.
I have started to get a bit over the whole Daenerys Targaryen & the dragons. She claimed to set people free but the amount of people that have been killed because of her is ridiculous! So her last scenes were her fleeing with her dragon, while everyone was getting killed. She didnt even try to take one other person with her to save them too. I actually would’ve been ok if if her character had been killed off. I would have rathered her, than my favourite character at the end!
What happened with the white walkers? They were all over the place in the last episode and then in the finale… nothing! Barely a mention. There has been this whole thing about winter is coming and look out for the white walkers through all the seasons, and they were barely even mentioned in the finale!
When it came to Aryas scene, I thought ‘Yes! Finally some closure for her, getting to kill that man that helped get her father killed’ Of course I wouldn’t be cheering on if this was real life, but there was so much injustice in this show, you just want to see some kind of justice, somewhere, anywhere!
I saw that brief moment where she explained to the guy that she had always wanted him dead and she seemed relieved, but then when she got caught out for killing him and started to go blind, that was the last we saw of her. What the?? What happened there? The way that bit ended really shit me! I want an explanation!
And now I finally come to pretty much the only really final bit of the whole finale, you could say. And this is where Game of thrones may have lost me, and sounds like many others, as loyal followers.
All the blood and gore had been getting to me already and the lack of justice everywhere was infuriating! The way they were leaving everything so open , so that they could continue that storyline in the future if they want, was starting to shit me.
And then they go and kill the hottest guy on the show! And in such an unfair way. So much stabbing! Why did they have to kill him like that?
Here is a photo of him for your viewing pleasure…
Just out of curiousity, does anyone know what Kit Harington is working on now? I am more interested in watching that, than season 6 of Game of thrones.
