  • Season 6 Finale A New King, a New Queen and R+L=J

    Season 6 Finale  A New King, a New Queen and R+L=J Wow. If you thought that Battle of the Bastards was as epic as Game of Thrones could get, you were wrong. Three series regulars die in the first half hour of the season 6 finale, and that's not even close to the most shocking moment.
    Everything a fan could possibly want was stuffed into this finale. There's a new king, a new queen, a new alliance, satisfying revenge and the show FINALLY confirmed that R+L really does equal J.

    Cersei Burns Everything to the Ground

    The opening 30 minutes of this finale is a stunning set piece featuring Loras and Cersei's trials in King's Landing. Loras takes his punishment and has his head carved, but Cersei refuses to show up. That's because she has other plans.

    Cersei stages a massive coup. Qyburn kills Grand Maester Pycelle and his Little Birds, the child spies, lead Lancel into the caves where he's stabbed and sees all of the Mad King's wildfire barrels. It's set on fire and the entire Sept, filled w...

  • Who Won the Battle of the Bastards?

    Who Won the Battle of the Bastards? Ned Stark's beheading. The Battle of Blackwater. The Red Wedding. The wildlings attacking Castle Black. Daenerys flying away on the back of her dragon. That's what the ninth episode of Game of Thrones means. Joining that list is the Battle of the Bastards, where Ramsey Bolton and Jon Snow fight for Winterfell.
    It's yet another brutal and brilliant battle with some of the most visceral and bloody action sequences the show has ever done. And as if the Battle of the Bastards wasn't enough, we also get an impressive battle in Meereen. If this episode isn't instantly in your Top 5 Game of Thrones episode of all-time, you're a fool.

    The Battle in Meereen

    Meereen is still under attack by the masters, so Dany and Tyrion discuss strategy. The meet with the leaders to arrange a surrender, bu the masters foolishly think Dany is the one surrending. She summons her dragon, jumps on his back, flies away, gets the other two dragons and they proceed to ...

    Battle of the Bastards

    Was that the episode of Game of Thrones we've been waiting for all season long?

    The battle of the bastards finally came on Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 9 and left me with a flurry of emotions. 

    We lost Rickon, but that was pretty much guaranteed. There was no way Ramsey was going to let the youngest Stark make it back to his siblings alive.

    That said, the whole scene with him running for his life was horrifying, but I struggled to feel anything because it was blatantly obvious how it was going to play out. 

    Ramsey really loves to play his games, but it was thrilling to see his theatrics come back to bite him... quite literally. More on that in a little.

    There were spoilers literally all over the internet for this episode and I managed to avoid them, save for one about Tormund's demis...

  • Does Arya Live or Die?

    Does Arya Live or Die? Did you ever wonder what a Jason Bourne movie would be like if it starred teenage girls? Probably not, but it's freaking awesome based on the final scene of this week's Game of Thrones which featuring a thrilling chase between Arya and the girl trying to kill her. It's tense, action-packed and if you didn't cheer multiple times, then you are no one.
    Elsewhere, Dany returned home, Varys and Qyburn are keeping mysterious secrets and the sexual tension between Jaime and Brienne reaches an all-time high.

    Arya vs. the Waif

    After being stabbed and running away, Arya is nursed to health by the woman she was once hired to kill, the actress Lady Crane. But by the end of the episode, the girl who stabbed her, the Waif, tracks her down and kills Lady Crane.

    What follows is the brilliant chase scene through the streets of Braavos, with Arya jumping off a roof and falling down stairs while crashing into fruit baskets. It's a wonderful sequence th...

    Arya Stark is going home to Winterfell!

    On Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 8 Arya had to literally fight for her life in order to secure her ticket out of Braavos and it featured some of the most exhilarating scenes on the show to date. 

    All of the scenes with the House of Black and White have been pretty dull thus far, but all of the crazy drama tonight made up for it. I had to mentally prepare myself to lose Arya this week.

    Game of Thrones is one of those shows that loves to play with your expectations, so I'm thankful that Arya got to fight another day. I can't be the only one that gasped when she knocked that candle down. 

    Lady Crane was starting to grow on me and I LOVED that she helped Arya out of that tough spot, but it sucked that she got such a brutal death. She deserved better. Why couldn't she just survive?

  • Who's Back from the Dead Now?

    Who's Back from the Dead Now? The sixth season of Game of Thrones is all about bringing long-gone characters back into the story. We've already reconnected with Bran, Hodor, Meera, Rickon, Osha, the Tullys and the Greyjoys. Now it's time for another character to make his triumphant return from the dead.
    As for everyone else, they're preparing for wars. Jon and Sansa spend the episode recruiting an army, Jaime makes plans to fight the Blackfish and even Theon and Yara have big ideas of their own.

    The Hound Is Alive

    This week we meet Septon Meribald, played by Deadwood's Ian McShane. He's a former killer who is now reformed, a peaceful man trying to spread the word of the gods. But he's not a zealout like the High Sparrow, he's just very Zen, practicing and teaching non-violence. He's the Westeros version of Gandhi.

    And one of his follows is none other than the Hound. Yes, Sandor Clegane is alive, being found and saved after Arya left him for dead at the end...

    The Broken Man

    The Hound lives!

    We found that much out on Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 7 as it was revealed that he was hanging out with Ian McShane's Ray. 

    Game of Thrones Pictures from "The Broken Man" Start Gallery

    The thing is, the show did nothing to explain much about McShane's character, so forgive me for not giving a damn about his demise at the conclusion of the hour. 

    It's doubtful that anyone actually thought The Hound was really gone. We didn't actually see him die at the close of Game of Thrones Season 4, so a return was never really out of the question. 

    Considering the way he picked up that axe, it's now pretty obvious that having a calm life is not something he wants. He has every right to go after the men that butchered everyone. 

    Might The Hound cross paths with Arya again? Maybe, if Arya even makes it out of Braavos alive.

  • King Tommen Makes an Unholy Alliance

    King Tommen Makes an Unholy Alliance Game of Thrones delivered its biggest twist ever in the sixth episode of season 6, "Blood of My Blood." No one died. Sure a few skeletons were struck down, but they were technically dead already. This might be the first episode in the show's history without a human death.
    However, that doesn't mean nothing happened. King Tommen made an unholy alliance that will put Jaime Lannister directly in the path of the impending Jon Snow vs. Ramsey Bolton war. Arya Stark finally made a decision that will hopefully get her back in the action. A character we haven't seen since season 1 miraculously returned. And there were dragons, Gilly being a total feminist and, thankfully, no extreme close-ups of warty penises.

    King Tommen's Unholy Alliance

    Margaery Tyrell is about to make her own walk of shame, but she meets with King Tommen and tells him that she's seen the error of her ways and the High Sparrow isn't such a bad guy. If I know her half as well as I th...

    Blood of my Blood

    Welcome back, Drogon!

    On Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 6 Drogon finally returned, and it sent things in an interesting direction for Daenerys. 

    Daenerys wasn't in much of the hour, but the most exciting stuff seems to happen with her. In this case, it was her appearing on the dragon and then giving the same speech Khal Drogo gave. 

    Game of Thrones Pictures from "Blood of My Blood" Start Gallery

    It was an immensely powerful speech, so why wouldn't she use it again? It was a promise that was made before, so it would make sense she would use in this instance to ensure that her men knew she meant business.

    She officially has the Dothrakis under her thumb and knows she has a huge army that will help her out with all of her enemies. But how long will it take her to get to Westeros? She may have a dragon that can fly her around the place, but that won't help her army.

  • Bran vs. the Night's King

    Bran vs. the Night's King The White Walkers are the biggest threat on Game of Thrones and their ruler, the Night's King, is one ice-cold bad-ass. With the ability to raise the dead and command them, he seems unstoppable. But there's one man who can fight back. One man whose destiny is to hold back the White Walkers and save the day. And that man's name is Hodor.
    No, seriously, this episode of Game of Thrones answers all of your Hodor questions, like how he got his name and why he can't say anything else. If he wasn't already one of your favorite characters, he is now.

    There are also a few other developments like a new ruler for the Iron Islands, a new Red Priestess and yet another dead direwolf. Oh, and if you've missed seeing Joffrey get slapped over and over again, the show finds a way to remind us how satisfying that was.
