SPOILER ALERT BEWARE
The Game of Thrones season finale premiered on Sunday to anticipation, despair and collective awe of fans everywhere. Endless questions were awaiting answers. Will Cleganebowl finally happen? Will Jon’s parentage finally be revealed? Will Jon and Daenerys finally hook up? Are Cersei and Jaime finally going to come to blows? What will finally happen? And, of course, the blanket questions: who dies, who bonks and what plot twists await us at the end?
As my friends and I piled around a projector screen watching YouTube clips of previews and house histories throughout the Seven Kingdoms, we impatiently counted down the minutes until 9 p.m. hit. Then, slightly early, HBO Go released the episode and the “The Dragon and the Wolf” began.
Here’s what went through my head during the episode:
Here it is. LOAD DAMN IT. Ok, here we go
The previews better not pull that BS where they spoil it before it happens
God I hate Littlefinger
If this whole “Bringing a wight back” thing doesn’t work, can’t say I didn’t tell you so
How are there still that many Unsullied?
Look at Bronn being called “lord” – glow up
Ah, stay true to yourself babe
What a warm welcome home for the Imp
“Silver-haired bitch” has a nice ring to it
Bronn & Tyrion together again
Podrick sure has grown up
Oh yeah, Brienne did leave the Hound for dead…forgot about that.
Look at all the reunions. How sweet.
Cersei looks like Tim Burton dressed her
What is this, a high school lunchroom?
So when is Dany flying in on her dragon?
Now, I guess
Honestly if the dragon just breathed fire now, the whole show would just end
Euron, sweetie, that’s not how things go okay? Shut up.
“We are a group of people who do not like each other,” understatement of the year
Aw damn, so that was the Clegane Bowl preview we saw?
Creepy Maester = Frankenstein. He’ll make his own army of the dead. You heard it hear first.
How many times have we seen Cersei shook on this show? It’s so weird.
Alright well that was a good character arc for Euron. See ya.
Ew, even his farewells make me feel icky.
CERSEI ACCEPTED A TRUCE???
Oh okay, strings. There they are. Now we’re getting somewhere.
Jon is getting hotter to Dany by the second
There’s the Stark in him. Getting people killed and all. Nothing new.
I miss Jaime & Tyrion
Omg Shae flashbacks
Tyrion don’t go asking for things you can’t take back
There’s the alcohol abuse we’ve come to know and love
Does anyone actually believe Cersei is pregnant?
Jon + Dany = JUST KISS ALREADY
Wait what – what kind of BS is Cersei pulling?
When is Littlefinger going to die?
Sansa wtf. You just gonna tell all Arya’s secrets? What kind of sisterly alliance is that?
You can see Littlefinger fill with power when his schemes play out
Sansa, sweetie, you’re smarter than that
Theon – GROW A SPINE FOR GOD’S SAKE
Yara needed you episode 2 you jerkwad
Ok I could fight better than Theon
Theon right now – “GOT NO BALLS JACKASS!”
Wait I thought there was a boxing match last night?
“It took him four seasons to grow back the balls he lost”
Littlefinger is literally like:
FINALLY Bran becomes useful
WHERE ARE YOUR CLEVER SCHEMES NOW LORD BAELISH
There’s gonna be more plot twists right??? I mean, this is a GOT finale
Cersei is betraying everyone but herself. That’s not a plot twist @ Benioff and Weiss
Killing Jaime would certainly be a plot twist
Winter has come y’all
OH MY GOD IT HAPPENED
Time for some more incest
Aye Jon, cute butt
YOU KNOW NOTHING JON SNOW
