And now after Bastard Bowl comes the Backlash in spades. Cersei as predicted blow up the Tower of the High Faith killing the High Sparrow and the Tully family sans the Queen of Thrones. Tommen is spared until he decides to jump out of a window after watching the destruction. So, now we get Queen Ceresi much to everyone's dismay including Jamie.
Jamie was spending time with Walder Frey. They were celebrating the victory of Riverrun which Jamie correctly reminded Walder that if they keep losing it, there won't be any Lannister help. After the party, a girl who was eyeing up Jamie gives Walder a pie. A pie full of his dead kids. In one epic move, Arya Stark, who was the girl, cuts Walder's throat and avenges the Red Wedding. All that bullshit in the House of Black and White paid off. Dear God, did that actually happen.
The other did that happen moment was the Tower of Joy. Benji leaves Bran and his girlfriend off, because he cannot cross the Wall. Bran sees Ned go to his sister who dies in child birth in order to give us Jon Snow. Yes, Jon is Stark and Targaryn. He is the rightful heir. So much so, he exiles Melissandra from the North and becomes the White King of the North. Thanks to Lady Mormont owning a room full of men and Sansa not caring if she is in charge.
The Queen of Thornes, I love her, meets with the Sand Snakes. They have an offer which is given to her by Varys. So, our alliance is now Dorne/Tully/Danny. Danny leaves the city with her Boy Toy and sails to King's Land or what is left of it. I would be remiss not to mention Tyrion giving a great speech on how he doesn't believe in anything, but her. She makes him Hand to the Queen and we are off to fight Mad Queen Ceresi while Winter is officially here.
Thanks to the Brits fucking up their EU vote, we may need not get Game of Thrones back next year or its going to be late. Very very late. Scotland and Northern Ireland, you have the USA's permission to break up away and join the EU. Anything to get to season 7, do anything.
Originally posted by dWsI'd say Tommen took the name "King's Landing" too literally.
and pretty hard. That was the "aw shit" moment in our house. We didn't see that coming. We were trying to figure out how Cersi moves him out of the way when he takes care of it.
Shame Shame Shame.
We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.
