Welcome, friends, to our first Sunday without Game of Thrones, and can we first just say: WOW.
If the title of this post has done its job, then those reading are here for our collected thoughts on season 6 of HBO’s Game of Thrones, which ended with the LITERALLY EXPLOSIVE and amazing finale “The Winds of Winter” this past Sunday. If you haven’t finished watching yet, do not tread beyond this paragraph; thar be spoilers ahead. If you’re all caught up, then you know what that opening WOW was all about.
Now, we’re not here to talk about the finale. Events from it will come up a lot, of course, because it and its predecessor “Battle of the Bastards” were some of the greatest episodes to date. But we also want to touch on the season as a whole as well as hypothesize about what we’ll see in the 14 episodes that remain to us. (No, YOU’RE crying.) Basically, we have a lot of thoughts, and we want to lay them all on you!
Do you think you can handle it? For this post is long (very long) and full of ramblings.
