This season has been a slow burn... but seeing the last 3 episodes has made it worth the wait... the story telling has paid off and well, Arya... where the devil did that come from?!?
Very much looking forward to what happens on both sides of the wall... now that we know more about the wall.... if the Battle of the Bast*rds is anything to go by, it is going to be something to be remembered with the final battle.
Kind of knew Cersi was going to get revenge, but again... brutal.
Its only with this latest episode though that it became obvious to me that George Martin wrote Game of Thrones by opening an English history book and using a piece of tracing paper
Don't get me wrong, it's fantastically translated and adapted, but Cersei nicked her playbook from Mary 1... Robert Baratheon = Henry VIII... there are dozens of comparisons with historical events, not to mention the names of the two warring families... but does that mean the fiery red-head from the north will sit on the throne happily for 45 years?
I hadn't realised until recently how heavily Tolkien 'borrowed' from Scandinavian folklore... seems that our best stories are adaptations of things that really happened. Well... give or take a dragon or two
True, but in what other job might you turn up to work to find out you die today?
GoT does seem to kill a lot of its most popular characters in some particularly gruesome ways... and its extremely entertaining for it. I've rewatched the last couple of episodes of the last season several times because they're just that good.
