GoT Episode 6.9 Spoilers

There was a lot going on in this episode, but there isn’t really too much to talk about.  Dany had the “I’m a badass” battle scene.  She tells the Masters what’s up.  She does the whole, “no we are talking about YOUR surrender” bit.  Then she casually flies off and wrecks a ship or two.  Grey Worm has a badass moment when he executes the two Masters representatives.  Side note: had it really taken that long for the other two dragons to get loose?  That bit was very odd.  Yara and Dany’s negotiations were pretty entertaining as well.  Power to the ladies.  It won’t be the last example.

The Battle of the Bastards was just brutal.  No two ways about it.  The one “light” moment, that still involved tragedy, is a little protip for Rickon.  I assumed they would show that another archer took him out.  But as Sansa said, he was pretty much toast from the moment Ramsay got him.

Random digression overall protip: why did Ramsay even leave Winterfell?

Game of Thrones Episodes 6.6-8 spoilers

Sorry I was out for a bit.  Vacations and Overwatch hit.  Phew, I need to take a break on that one.

We’ll hit the big events over the last few episodes.

So the main theme from this season is “just kidding, no one dies on GoT.”  Benjen’s back after 5 seasons.  And he just happens to find Bran and Meera before the horde of white walkers who were literally two steps behind them.  And he is…mostly dead? Wave the magic wand.

The Hound is back?  Come on man.  Again, I love the character, but dude was pretty fucked up when we last saw him.  And now he is back seemingly perfectly healthy.  He has some really odd scenes of hanging out with Ian McShane, who knocked his role out of the park.  And then they kill McShane and a bunch of other people to…motivate the Hound back to going and fucking people up?  We get it GoT, terrible things happen in this world.  We didn’t really need to women in refrigerators this bit to get the Hound back on the track of killing people.

are you frickin’ kidding me?

Game of Thrones Episode 6.5 spoilers

Well, this episode was pretty terrible.  I don’t like dwelling on the fact that I am falling further and further into being a hater of this show.  But, it isn’t completely my fault.  The showrunners keep making bad story decisions.

After making what I didn’t think was a very bold claim last week about Sansa fucking up Littlefinger the next time she saw him, she did not fuck him up the next time she saw him.  I’m a little surprised Sansa didn’t have Brienne at least rough him up a bit.  I did like Sansa’s comments about moving between various sets of monsters who killed her family.  I’m just a little clueless as to what Littlefinger’s role in the story is right now.
