Reaction | Game of Thrones Season Finale

Welcome to the episode where literally everybody dies!

But seriously, what a finale. Beware, there are some MAJOR SPOILERS in this post so read ahead at your own risk.

I’m gonna be listing my Top 10 WTF moments so here goes

10] The End of Stannis

The episode started at a pretty low point, what with Stannis’ wife committing suicide. Poor Stannis, literally everyone deserted him and then he got outnumbered but wait

Of course Brienne had to come in! She gave him a pretty honourable death but I can’t help thinking, is this it for Stannis? I mean he sure didn’t go out with a bang

9] The Mountain is back!

 

When he strode in and carried Cersei I was like woah, some serious Frankenstein shiz going on here

8] Bad Timing

I love how just as Sansa decides to light a candle in the highest tower, Brienne just abandons post to go kill Stannis. I mean. Bad timing. Why! but we find out why because…

7] Theon

So finally. Finally Theon decided it was high time he help Sansa. When he pushed Myranda over I was like

But then he decided to be all knight-in-shining-armour and jumped off the building with Sansa. I mean were they hoping the snow would cushion their fall or something? For the show’s sake I hope they’re alive

6] Daenerys

I’ve read the books so I knew where Dany’s story line was heading. The obvious ambush from the Dothraki. But where was Drogon when like 50 000 horses were circling Dany?

I actually predicted what might happen with Dany and the Dothraki in my predictions post here

5} House of Black and White

The whole Jaqan H’ghar death thing was TOO CLOSE.

But then it gets weirder with Faceless vooodoo magic

And to top things off Arya goes blind. I know it happens in the books as well but it was still freaky

4] Kiss of Death

As soon as Ellaria kissed Myrcella I was like

I KNEW IT. Myrcella and Jaime are having this father-daughter moment and BAM. The poison starts working. This is officially war.

3] Gore overload

Having watched Game of Thrones for quite a while now, I like to think I’ve acquired a certain tolerance to gore but this episode just threw that out the window. Remember this?

This seems almost gentle compared to what Arya did to Meryn Trant. Oh Lord, I felt physically sick and the thought that she’s just a little girl makes me even sicker. But well done to the makeup artists, you achieved your goal!

2] Walk of Shame

It’s good that they kept this scene till the very end because now I have a year to recover until I see Cersei again. Whoever directed this episode did a very very good job of emphasising just how humiliating this whole thing was. I mean my God, they call this mercy?

I’m still emotional over this. So emotional that I can’t even write it. I can’t okay. just

Jon Snow

Is Dead

My soulmate oh! And yeah I know he’s not really dead because I believe Melisande will do some Fire God magic and he’ll wake up and be a Targaryen maybe.

But just the way it was done. He protected those people! He thought the best of them especially freaking Oli and they stabbed him right in the gut? disgusting

I’m still a bit overwhelmed over the whole episode. It was a very emotionally provoking finale, unlike anything Game of Thrones has done before.

This might just be the last time I’m posting a Game of Thrones reaction post for a while so I just wanna say, these were fun to do. And I managed to react to all the episode for the season. I hope you enjoyed them too!

Reaction | The Sons of the Harpy | The Deaths Begin….

WARNING: IF YOU HAVEN’T WATCHED THIS EPISODE THE POST WON’T MAKE ANY SENSE

Words fail to describe my reaction to this week’s episode so queue the gifs…

But first I have some realizations/predictions as you do

So Jaime’s heading to Dorne right and it was very clever of the show makers to get Bronn to cross examine the exact reason Jaime’s heading there which got me thinking…

What if he wants to win Cersei back?

I mean she has been acting all moody towards him and when asked what his ideal death would be Jaime replied:

In the arms of the woman I love.

That was so sad and sweet. So yeah, do you think that’s his potential reason for going to dawn?

Margaery’s father and Meryn Trant are heading to Braavos

Guess who else is in Braavos who would really love to kill Meryn Trant?

That’s right. Arya Stark

I love how finally plot lines are beginning to overlap!

In relation to the High Sparrow and the Faith Militant I’m very impressed how closely the show is following the books, well as close as it can get I guess.

BUT LORAS TYRELL. NOT MY PRETTY BOY

I mean it does simplify things. But are they gonna arrest Margaery like in the books or…? But then again Margaery’s grandma is supposedly heading to King’s Landing so maybe she’ll be all shrewd again and get Cersei arrested like in the books because come on, we need that Walk of Shame.

But poor Tommen stuck in between all this politics like…

As always Melisande came back to her roots and tried to seduce Jon which was extremely disturbing but Jon is a man of honour and just the mention of Ygritte

Equally as disturbing was Sansa and Littlefinger’s kiss despite it being like the third time! but I was surprised Littlefinger discussed the Tourney of Harrenhal. The show makers don’t just put in stuff like that in there for a bit of history lesson do they? (cough R+L=J cough)

We finally met the Sandsnakes and oh boy

And now comes the most grim part of the episode

The Unsullied ambush and Greyworm and Barristan Selmy and oh my freaking God I need therapy.

I mean are they actually dead or just injured? I NEED CONFIRMATION!

That was my very reactive reaction to this week’s episode. I mean it’s only going to get more explosive from here so expect even more reactive posts in the future!

NOTE: NONE OF THE GIFS IN THIS POST ARE MINE.

Book reviews

Blood of Olympus- SPOILERS discussion

This post will obviously contain spoilers concerning the Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan so read ahead at your own risk.

More than any other books in the series Blood of Olympus was more about character development than fighting which was awesome!

Instead of getting Percy and Annabeth all the time we see more of the other characters, I think this was so great because my judgement about some of them turned out to be completely wrong. A fresh perspective is always welcome in my eyes.

Nico

We go deeper than the underworld with Nico and them feels! his rage, his dark side, his struggle with his dad and finally him coming to terms with his sexuality, feeling secure and belonged at Camp Half Blood for once in his life created this affection for Nico i didn’t think was possible.

His relationship with Reyna was so unexpected but so good. I like that they lend strength to each other and don’t mind confiding. Their bond is what kept both going, to get that Athena Parthenos to Camp and like hell they did

Reyna

Superwoman right here. In the previous books Reyna was just this annoying girl trying to steal Jason but boy was I wrong. She is an absolute powerhouse. I mean she’s so realistic and strong but she has her struggles like any other person. I highly respect strong female protagonist and Reyna’s going right on the list of my favorites.

As previously mentioned, Nico getting he to open up about her dad was just so powerful and added that extra badass to Reyna’s character. The scene with the hunter dude and the explosives and then Athena saves the day, that was so COOL and when Reyna just strides into the midst of the Greeks and Romans like she owns the house oh yeah!

Piper

You know how I said i judged some characters? well, Piper was one of them and I thought she was just some useless Love child. The amount that Piper developed in BoO was phenomenal. I mean I underestimated her strength.

In Rome when she just jumps in the middle of all these monsters to save Percy and Annabeth? crazy. Good crazy.

And then when she’s on the quest to get the Physician’s Cure and all the stuff about her trusting her instincts and going with her emotions. Mind.freaking.blown. Respect Piper respect

The ending

This is by far one of the best conclusions to a series, I am so overly satisfied with the ending, every question was answered, the prophecy was fulfilled and no one died (that was especially my favorite bit).

The Seven and their parents fighting together to defeat the giants was so badass and it made me cry because this was all ending, it is rather bittersweet.

Leo. Oh Leo, Let’s be honest, he was THE Hero in this. I mean talk about smart. Defeating Gaia, getting unexpectedly blown but coming back to life and finding an impossible island to get Calypso? woah there. It was so sneaky that we didn’t find out about this till the very end. The whole time I was like he can’t be dead right? what if though? no,stay optimistic.¬†

And when Leo and Calypso fly away on Festus, I thought, i can’t wait to read the next chapter when all the Demigods find out Leo is alive. But the next page was the Glossary. I thought a new adventure was beginning!

But yeah, it’s an open ending. I mean did Leo go back to Camp or did him and Calypso elope?

What if 10  years later at the Demigods reunion he just randomly turned up?
