[SPOILER ALERT! You have been warned!] While I am still reeling from the death of Princess Shireen by sacrifice, the season finale of Game of Thrones 5 had even more surprises for me. These surprises strengthen my resolve to hold off reading Martin’s books. I love the feeling of almost falling off my seat with the surprises I see in the show. It’s even better than the gratification I felt when Stannis’ army is defeated — never mind that it’s a win for Ramsay Bolton (he will have his day). And it’s a bonus that one of my fave characters, Brienne, delivered the final blow to the father that sacrificed his daughter to win a war.
It’s the one thing I love about HBO’s Game of Thrones — redemption for those who have been wronged is almost assured. Cersei’s walk of shame was among them. Though I’d rather she die too like Joffrey, I think she still plans to wreak havoc and be the evil queen she plans to be before redemption comes.
So, Jon Snow is dead and Kit Harington confirms that he is done in Game of Thrones. I’ve been reading up on various theories from fans regarding his resurrection. They say that his last word in the book is Ghost. But I don’t hear him say it in his final moments in the show. Is he going to be some type of werewolf as he becomes part of Ghost? Or will Melisandre bring him back? This part is something even readers are speculating on since it’s still not in the books.
You know what I hate? How the best shows seem to end so fast? I feel like Game of Thrones season 5 was but a blink after waiting . . . and so we start the long wait again . . .
