Game Of Thrones Finale

My Thrones” finale thoughts … but first, a joke from twitter:

It would be great if at the conclusion of GoT, all the characters have to say good game” to each other like at the end of a little league competition.”

If the wildlings are now friendly with the south-of-the-wall folks, and the night king is gone, what is the purpose of the Night’s Watch and the wall? I swear Jon and I said There’s still a Night’s Watch?” at the same time.

They sure got King’s Landing up and running real fast for a city that was systematically burned to the ground street-by-street. And the Red Keep which collapsed down to the basement? A little sweeping-up and it’s fine.

I won’t apologize: I wanted happy endings for the 🐺Stark 🐺children and I got em. Bran is the King of the Six Kingdoms, Sansa is the Queen of the North, Ayra is definitely going to conquer America or whatever is west of not-the-UK, and sure felt to me like Jon was riding off to be the new King-Beyond-the-Wall (recall that Mance Rayder was also a former Night’s Watch ranger.)

Small council seats of Robert Baratheon and the last episode:

Hand: Ned Stark, Tyrion Lannister. Men who want to do the right thing. Coin: Littlefinger, Bronn. Scoundrels and lovers of brothels, both of them. Ships: Stannis Baratheon, Ser Davos Seaworth. The loyal vassal to Stannis gets his old seat. Lord Commander of the Kingsguard: Ser Barristan Selmy, Ser Brienne of Tarth. The best swordsmen and most honorable of people. Grand Maester: Pycelle, Samwell Tarly. Of course, this had to be, but I worry about Sam’s youth and inexperience.

And how bout this: Jamie and Cersei began the series with an event at the top of a tower in the north, and died at the bottom of a tower in the south.

More twitter jokes:

So did the dragon scorch the throne for revenge out of a sense of metaphor or because it saw the swords and thought the throne literally killed its mom?”

Behind every king is a woman who dragged him around on a sled for three years never to be heard from again.”
