Game of Thrones Final Season: ‘The Iron Throne’ Review

All in all, while the last half of Season 8 was shaky at best, Game of Thrones was able to come out with a passable ending.  It wasn’t the epic conclusion that fans had their hearts set out on for a variety of reasons, but it at least made sense, and its an ending that fans can make peace with in the long run, just as Westeros did with their new ruler. … Read More Game of Thrones Final Season: ‘The Iron Throne’ Review

Game of Thrones Final Season: ‘A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms’ Review

Seriously, all the goodbyes in this episode makes me just want to hide under a rock until all this is over, yet at the same time makes me want to pull the days closer until its Game of Thrones Day again. At the same time, it also makes me want to cheer for these brave characters making a final stand despite insurmountable odds.

Game of Thrones Final Season: ‘Winterfell’ Review

Game of Thrones Epic Battles (Part 7): Battle of the Bastards

All in all, Battle of the Bastards was a beautiful episode, cinematically, storywise, scoring, the works. It was a magnificent episode overall. It was a total underdog victory, and while it was achieved by keeping secrets, it was a victory all the same. You can say a lot about Jon Snow but one thing he was, was trustworthy. It wasn’t right to keep him in the dark about Sansa’s plans but on the other hand, he might not have accepted support from the traitorous Lord Baelish in the first place. It was a satisfying victory because Ramsay finally got what he deserved. Karma’s a bitch. RIP, Rickon. It was nice seeing you one last time.
