Well, it’s here everyone. We have about a year to wait until the last six episodes of Game of Thrones appear and the Season 7 finale was incredible. We’re left with an incredible cliff hangar after what is the most intriguing and captivating episode to date. Let it be known, however, that I personally called what would happen. I’m not one to pat myself on the back, but hey, I told ya so.
The full 81 minute finale was intense out of the gate, and it solidified most of what we knew was going to happen. Daenerys and Jon along with Tyrion arrive at King’s Landing to meet with Jamie and Cersei. At first, Cersei decides to play f*ck f*ck games with the group because Jon won’t pledge his allegiance. Of course, because he already pledged his allegiance to Daenerys, Tyiron goes and has a little chat with her. Being the astute scholar that he is, Tyrion recognizes that Cersei is pregnant. She decides to help out the group. In a moment of surprising weakness, Cersei acknowledges that she hopes Daenerys remembers that she helped without any assurance of what would happen to her afterwards. It’s not normal to see Cersei acknowledge this type of action, but it showed a lot of what would come in the episode.
Ok, look, dont’ get me wrong. I can’t stand Theon. That being said, there was a great exchange between he and Jon which let you see the weight lift from Theon’s shoulders. It was as an incredibly surprising moment, and for some reason after all that happened to Theon, it took Jon to show him how easy the right choice is to make. Pardon the pun, but Theon finally decides to “man up” and ends up taking out the main opposition within the Greyjoy family. He finally gets the group to set sail to rescue Yara.
Sansa realizes that Littlefinger is the real threat. She summons Arya with the guise that she is the threat, but things quickly take a turn. Incredibly quickly, Littlefinger turns into the biggest little bitch on God’s green Earth. Sansa confronts him with his true charges as she realizes the f*ck f*ck games he’s playing, and Littlefinger becomes the latest victim of instant tracheotomy at the hands of Arya’s Valyrian steel dagger.
Cersei can’t be any more evil. I know, I know this is obvious. She reveals to Jamie that her promise to pledge her armies was a ploy. Jamie quickly understands how legitimately insane Cersei is, and he decides to leave. Sam arrives and meets with Bran afterward. They both speak to each other, and figure out that Jon is indeed the heir to the Iron Throne. As they are speaking, Bran acts as a voice over while Jon and Daenerys appear on screen. Cue the Pornhub music, because Jon ends up smashing his aunt Daenerys aboard the ship set sail for battle.
“But Mike, that’s only four guesses” I know, I know dear viewer. Don’t worry. My last guess, the one with the wall falling at the hands of the Night King – Yeah, that happened. The army of the dead pops up out of nowhere at the end, and then you hear it. *SCREEEEEECH* But where is it? I can’t see it. BOOM! Out of the clouds the night king pops up and Viserion’s back. He lights up the wall in blue fire. Take a guess what happens. Well, you don’t really have to because I called it weeks ago. The wall falls, and the army of the dead walk oh so nonchalantly south. Nobody knows what happens yet, except Bran because you see his ravens fly away during his vision.
Fade to credits.
That’s right ladies and gentleman, I went 5 for 5 in my Game of Thrones season finale predictions. To be fair, some was obvious, while most was not. At the end of the finale’s 81 minute episode, we were left with what was a top moment in television history. The Breaking Bad series finale and a few others were better, but not many. We’ll have to wait until at least next year to see what happens unfortunately. What did you think about the finale? Let us know below.
Till’ next year ladies and gentleman.
