Reaction | The Door

Bit late I know but no one ever did blogging and Year 12 and got out alive hah

This episode should’ve been titled “The Feels”

Let’s just take a moment to pay homage to the most beautiful character in the entire series…

hodor tv game of thrones hbo

This was by far the saddest and most heartbreaking death since Hodor is as pure as you get in Westeros really.

It’s mind boggling to think that GRRM had Hodor’s whole life planned out like his life purpose was to HOLD THE DOOR

But alas, all good things must come to an end.

Hopefully Bran and Meera make it out alive from that wasteland and find friendly faces.

The fact that The Children of the Forest created the White Walkers just seems like Karma to me to be honest, but the damage is done I guess.

It’s gonna be really interesting to see Sansa build an army to take back the North, cue motivational speeches and of course awkward high school romances..

The part with Dany and Ser Jorah was super sad as well, I couldn’t help noticing what a good actress Emilia is!

The situation with Arya has me thoughtful, I mean she will come back to Westeros but HOW and WHEN?

I love how for basically the entire season we have ignored Dorne like what is going on there?

So after last week’s smashing Oathbreaker episode, this was to be honest a real let down.

I mean most of the time I was sitting there thinking “what is even happening?”

like a lot of plans were being put into place, a lot of theories being discussed but when it came to the action part of the show, it was lacking, and isn’t that the most fun?

why did no one die in this episode like come on we’re almost halfway there

But the things I did enjoy include:

Sansa meeting Jon!

I had a feeling timing would be a bitch and just as Jon left Castle Black, Sansa would arrive but nope. I really like how Sansa is evolving into this strong character and if all goes well, Jon and Sansa will take back Winterfell!

The Osha-Ramsay scene was pretty tense to be honest, I mean I didn’t expect Osha to be killed so brutally but what can you expect from Ramsay?

But I believe Ramsay will be killed by someone much more important. Ideally Sansa, Ideally at the end of this season.

Of course the end was highly enjoyable, I love how Dany just sticks it to everyone, all the time but I can’t help thinking, is it really that easy to kill a Khal and his most powerful men?

THIS POST CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS ABOUT EPISODE 2 OF SEASON 6 OF GAME OF THRONES

Game of Thrones is slowly going to become the show that is renowned for ending their episodes on cliff hangers.

So the Jon Snow resurrection.

I mean a large part of me always knew Melisandre would do her fire magic and bring him back but I had my doubts. I definitely did not expect the resurrection to happen so early in the season though. I guess it just means the rest of the season will unfold very interestingly.

Given that Sansa, Brienne and Podrick are heading for Castle Black, I believe Sansa and Jon will team up and hopefully win Winterfell back!

Theon will also be heading to the Iron Islands where I believe the election for a new ruler will take place, I think I remember reading that in A Feast for Crows? Hopefully, Yarra/Asha Greyjoy reins supreme.

I think this episode did a very good job of putting all the characters on set paths for the season.

Of course another big WTF moment was the death of Lord Bolton. I mean I expected it to be honest, Ramsay would never hug someone without stabbing them come on. I was mostly traumatised by him setting the dogs on Lady Walda and the child, I mean that man settles at nothing.

We’re starting to see the tension build between the High Sparrow and the Lannisters, and we also get a peak at the Mountain’s strength in this episode so that will span out interestingly.

The interaction between Tyrion and the Dragons added a bit of sarcasm and a lighter tone to all the heavier things going on in the episode. Yeah, I didn’t beleive for a second the dragons would kill him but it’ll be interesting to see what they do now that they’re unchained.

Let’s talk about Bran’s visions. I’m glad the story has finally traveled that far North. The only purpose I can imagine for the show writers to show the viewers that vision of Winterfell back in the days is:

-The episode was about home and finding your way back sort of so it set the scene by showing what Winterfell looked like in the happier days, and what a sense of belonging looks like I guess,

-To provide foreshadowing for when Benjen Stark appears later in the show or if they do decide to go with the Lyanna Rhaegar theory.

-To give a backstory for Hodor, I mean something has obviously happened between him being that little boy to now and it might play a crucial role in the show?

I realise this post was very rambly and prediction filled but that’s literally my reaction to this week’s episode. Let’s take it to the comments sections from here!

It’s that time of the year again. Oh yeah, the articles are streaming out, the predictions are at an all time high and I”m here to add my voice to it.

Obviously this post contains spoilers about the Season 6 Premiere of Game of Thrones so don’t read it if you don’t wanna spoil it for yourself blah blah.

The opening scene of the Season well and truly establishes that yes, Jon Snow IS dead.

We lose all hope of a recovery when even melisandre seems at a loss but the fact that the body is still there, even if it there to give rise to the anger that will finally bring down Thorne, the fact that the body is there gives me a teensy bit of hope.

Moving Norther, Podrick and Brienne killed it! I can’t wait to see what the Squad gets up to this season starting by kicking some Bolton ass.

This episode was mainly centered on setting the scene as is the case with most season premieres of Game of Thrones.

My predictions made in this post about Dany having to live her days out in Vaes Dothrak are true however, as probability has it, Ser Jorah and Daario will probably fix that pickle up. I quite enjoyed the friend-zone talk Daario and Jorah had to be honest.

I feel like Arya will learn how to fight blindly and that will be her redemption later in the season.

The Dorne Situation was probably the most stupidest thing. Prince Doran’s death did come as a surprise but then again what do you expect from those women?

I was hoping Trystane would be smart enough NOT TO TURN HIS BACK ON HIS ENEMY. Like jeez you really expect these salty bitches to have any sense of honour?

Bits and bobs of the episode aside, let’s address the elephant in the room. Melisandre’s revealing, that was the most satisfying and shocking and Game of Thrones thing about the episode. I found a great article from EW explaining the whole process and theory behind it and all I’m gonna say at this point is that, it’s kind of expected but I’m interested to see where it goes from here for her character.

While the season premiere was no Oscar-winning movie, it set the scene quite successfully for the action, drama and suspense that is to follow in the season. There are definitely better things ahead. By that I mean more people dying.

Game of Thrones Season 6 Trailer | Burning Questions

Guess who’s a month late to the party?

Any who, April usually is a very Game of Thrones loaded month here on Infinity Reads and what better way to start than by discussing the trailer and attempting to answer your burning questions? (by that I mean creating more questions that I want answered)

Is Jon Snow gone for good?

I have two takes on this

#1 the optimistic take: I mean he’s dead but he’s actually a Targaryen so the dragon inside him will come alive if and when Melisandre performs her fire magic and resurrects him and he becomes king of Westeros and marries Dany cuz we can’t give up on the incest trend can we?

In all seriousness, I feel like if Jon were to make a come back it won’t be until the very end of season 6

#2 the let’s be real take: We have to remember that the Rhaegar + Lyanna theory (look it up) has been primarily fan based, I mean neither Martin nor the producers of the show seem to say much in terms of that right?

so what if Jon isn’t as important as we’d like to believe he is (was)? what if he’s dead like the 50 other important characters that have been killed on the show? Maybe Dany or Sansa or Tyrion are the survivors and Westeros belongs to one of them?

What’s up with Daenerys?

We know that the widow of a Khal is to live out the rest of her days in Vaes Dothrak. So that’s obviously where Dany has seen to be taken in the trailer. I feel like there, she’ll be treated as the lowest of the lowest and she’s essentially a prisoner since she ran away.

Although Ser Jorah finds her ring in the desert (I mean probability right?) so he’s most likely going to rescue her, but first let’s hope he doesn’t die of the Grey disease first of course.

 

 

Is Cersei gonna make a comeback ?

Oh hell yes.

If it wasn’t obvious from the best scene of the trailer aka the moment Cersei goes “I choose violence”. The Mountain or more precisely the Frankenstein like concoction is going to kick the asses of the High Sparrow’s army. The reason I sound so excited is because Cersei went from being the most hated character to somewhat of an underdog and we all love to see the rise of the underdog don’t we?

So..Sansa?

I predict Sansa’s character growth is going to be HUGE in this season, we see in the trailer her and Theon jumping off the roof to escape from Ramsey, the only logical reason they could’ve survived the fall is probably the thick snowfall. I feel it’s highly likely that Theon, Sansa and Brienne will form somewhat of a trio and try to take revenge on Ramsey by forming alliances with Theon’s family or something.

Bran can walk??

No. Maybe. Well, I realise in the show they haven’t delved much yet into Bran’s ability to have visions, but basically Bran has visions about the past or the future and in the books you get the feeling that he’s almost physically present in that vision. The show of course for visual representation’s sake must’ve decided to portray Bran as being fully present in his visions and hey, it’s just a vision right so why can’t he walk? so he can walk , yes and no.

Tell us more!

What’s more to say about the trailers? Of course it can’t be Game of Thrones without someone getting naked aka Melisandre.

Other than that, I don’t want to comment on Arya’s story line since the books are ahead of where Arya is now in the show so I wouldn’t want to spoil anything.

If you have any more burning questions or are up for a good ol’ GoT discussion let’s take it t the comments!
