GAME OF THRONES FINALE, REVIEW
The finale of the 6th season of game of thrones aired sunday, 26th of jun 2016.
After last week's epic episode,"The battle of the bastards" I wasn't expecting the finale to be this great, but I must admit I was wrong, because the finale of season 6 was extraordinarily amazing. It was a great end to a great season. I wanna admit that season 6 is my most favourite season of game of thrones. this is by far the strongest most wonderful season.
Let us dig in and see what the episode has to offer, in detail.
King's Landing burns:
Cersei plans to "Burn them all" like the mad king. and succeeds, she has wild fire underneath the part of king's landing where she is supposed to appear before the 7 gods for her crimes. she chooses not to attend her trial and instead literally burns them all. All the sparrows, margaery, the queen and everyone present for the trial. the scene gives an epic start to the finale, and was a treat to watch.
Tommen, the king, kills himself by jumping out of the window watching everything burn, and now that the king is dead there is no one in Cersei's way to the iron throne, and she is crowned queen.
Jaime Lannister, the King slayer, is not pleased with Cersei being the queen, and with his reputation ad the king slayer, is he gonna drive a sword through Cersei? I agree its a little far fetched but it is possible.
Jon Snow banished the Red priestess:
Davos Seaworth confronts The lady Melisandre, for burning The princess Shireen Baratheon, and asks Jon Snow to execute her for murder. but Jon banishes her to the south and asks her never to return to the north or she will be executed.
Personally I think he should have executed her, her crime was far too big for banishment. plus executing her would have set an example.
Sorry Jon, for not telling you:
Sansa is sorry that she didn't tell jon about the knights of theVale before the battle. and Jon is not really bothered about the fact that she didn't tell him. "we need to trust each other, we can't fight a war amongst ourselves, we have so many enemies now. this was the reply Jon gave her.
I agree, although she kind of betrayed him, they need to stick together, they need trust amongst themselves not fight.
so we finally see Bran go back to the tower of joy, and we see Lyanna Stark, who just gave birth to a baby, Ned Stark is there and Lyanna tells him that his name is Jon, and that Ned has to protect her otherwise robert will kill him, if he finds out his true parentage, lyanna Stark was kidnapped by Rhaegar Targaryen, So yeah, Jon is a Targaryen.
The mother of dragons finally has everything she wanted, an army, ships, dragons, and she is coming for the iron throne. God help those who stand in her way.
Cersei is not liked by anyone, there is hardly going to be anyone who would die for her when daenerys targaryen attacks.
as for Jon, now that we know he is a Targaryen, and Daenerys's nephew, he might end up on the throne himself, or may be by daenerys's side (at least).
Daenerys says that she might marry for alliance, she doesn't say who, but hse is ready for it, and the Targaryens are fond of marrying their siblings to keep the blood line pure, Daenerys, Viserys, and Rhaegar, themselves are born of incest, they are the children of the mad King, Aerys Targaryen and his sister, Queen Rhaella Targaryen. does this mean that Jon and Daenerys can actually end up getting married?? we will have to wait for that one.
Anyhow, I believe that Daenerys was made to rule, I mean come on! Tyrion Lannister says He believes in her, he pledged his council to her, she made him her hand, there's gotta be something special about her.
Jon is the King in the North:
The little lady Lyanna Mormont, gives a speech and pledges ger allegiance to Jon Snow and accepts him as the King in the north. and the rest of the Houses of the north follows her and Jon is now The King in the north.
But what I am concerned about is that the Houses pledged their allegiance to Jon because thay believe that Bastard or not, Ned Stark's blood runs through his veins, that means that he is still Ned's son. but will the follow him if he turns out to be a Targaryen? I guess its another thing we will have to wait for.
Arya Stark, Kills Walder Frey:
Arya killing Walder Frey, is one of the most satisfying things you will see on Game of thrones. the way Arya changed her face,into a commoner who works as a servent for the Freys. Revenge really is a dish best served cold. and now we know why Arya went to Braavos, this was her plan all along, to avenge her family.
Judging from the way she was eyeing Jaime, is she going to kill him next? another thing we will have to wait for.
The background Score:
Last but not least, the background score of the finale was more than epic. it complimented every scene so well, one might think all the epic scenes were so epic partly because of the music that played in the background.
let me know what you think, what I have missed.
