Already ???

If you are a Game of Thrones fan and haven’t neither seen the series yet nor read the books and are planning to, then this post isn’t for you. I am gonna try and contain myself and not give away any major spoilers, but I can’t guarantee it.

Its already over 😦 The season with 10 episodes is already done. Oh My God!!! What a roller coaster ride. I am still not sure how I feel about the various deviations or rather should I say major deviations from the book. I think I am not too happy about it, but kind of accept it, because that is all I can do now! (I know I am trying to convince myself here, especially now that I have seen all the episodes). The last episode made me empty a big tub of icecream even before I could stop myself or even realize what I was doing. I sort of expected a few of the twists in the last episode and certainly did expect the end scene to be exactly the one that was shown, but that doesn’t mean it felt nice to see it. It still made me cringe in horror. The only other surprise that made me cringe was when Stannis the Mannis did what he did and became the most unpopular guy, even beating Ramsay Bolton in the race. A lot of surprise elements in the series which sort of leads the story astray from the books, especially the White Walkers scene (whoa!!! that was one hell of a scene yeah?). Now that we know a couple of characters are dead , who weren’t dead yet in the book, how is the story gonna proceed….and I have to wait for almost another year now! Dammit!!! I seriously hope the book comes out before that because there is a lot of catching up to do. I really admire how they actually condense the whole story into 10 episodes trying to bring all that matters into the series, considering the number of subplots and characters involved, but still feels bad to see your small and favorite characters not being included. My best scene of the whole series is where Jorah and Tyrion sit and talk after their attack. That was one hell of a place and the photography was so amazing. I kept rewinding to that scene just to take in that sunset. It was soooo awesome. The final episode does win the most gruesome episode award among all the episodes. People dropped dead like flies, literally. Someone even tweeted that this episode had more deaths than the (in)famous Red Wedding 🙂 But at least it ended where the books ended. A small consolation if any.

I think I did manage to not add any spoilers, hopefully. But if I did, well, I did warn ya’. Now the wait begins. But at least there will be lot of posts discussing and dissecting the season. So I will get my GoT fix 😉

    The ending was shocking, to say the least. Sadly, it seems to have chipped a piece of desire to continue watching.

      🙂 I can’t imagine how you would have felt about it coz I did expect it to happen because that is how the books end. But still was a little painful.

    That was quite an episode of cliffhangers and downbeat moments. We’ve definitely hit a spot in the story where so much is dark…

    The show has mostly caught up with the books, although they might bring in some of the things next season that were skipped this season.

    Speaking of dying, it’s killing me that there’s one person who should have been dead long ago and is still alive. (Killing me because I want to write things about that…)

    A little over 9 months to go! The countdown has started!

      Yeah! I miss Bran and Hodor! Guess they are coming back next season. Now I wonder who is this person you are talking about (any clues !) else I hope to see it in your posts 😉

      Winter has already come! Everything seems so dark and scary. And waiting is so painful.

        If they happen to die next season, I’ll tell you “hey, [NAME] was who I was talking about” and I’ll tell you why it was important to me… 🙂

            I forget. Have you read any of the books? If you’ve read Book 3, I can tell you.

                Oh, I can tell you then!

                SPOILER ALERT – People, if you’ve not read the books look away!

                Theon’s father, Balon Greyjoy, should be dead dead dead. He died in the books before Robb Stark did. Which is crazy on the show, since in Joffrey’s wedding reception History Lesson involving dwarves, the Balon dwarf dies after Renly, before Robb.!!!!!! (Proving Joffrey has read most of the books.)

                Anyway, since Balon is still alive (he was last year and there’s not been any report otherwise) BALON GREYJOY WINS THE WAR OF THE FIVE KINGS (being the only one of the original five, still alive.)

                  😀 Thank you so much….. When you mentioned book 3 I had a feeling that it could be a greyjoy but again wasn’t sure. Heard that the next season we will see more of them , Tarly’s etc…. So yeah…wonder how that’s gonna go.
