And the best shot of a television series this year goes to: (despite recalling seeing the very same thing on the finale of Hannibal). WELP! It’s been a crazy ride. And it’s a finale to a show that’s hard to let go. But life’s cruel and meaningless, so overall I think this was a terrific and poetic ending: prophecy and ambition fulfilled. The tragedy being Daenerys’ actions, though horrifying, were needed to create the brighter future, only she would be a threat to it. THE REAL ruler to “break the wheel” turned out to be the 😂 wheel chair guy! 🤣 Irony doesn’t get funnier than that. And at least he won’t have to worry about stairs to sit on that Throne now. 🤣
But seriously, I think where every character is now is mighty just. Bran, a man never wanting power is bestowed upon him for precisely that. His knowledge will be heard for generations, and then a new King must be nominated, and it’ll just be habit now.
And everyone on the Council... predictable, and I know I wanted more deaths. But then who would be on the Council? Newbs?! Now it’s made of those who know and trust one another, lead by Tyrion, who has caused more disasters with his guidance, now must atone for it. And noticed how the missing master positions are the ones not currently needed. (Making Varys’ death the more necessary). Arya gets the Frodo ending, Sansa is Queen of the North, (always a Stark in Winterfell after all). And then Jon’s is the most poetic. Many thought he’d be King, but exile not only has less problems for everyone in the new order, but now he has a new purpose: leading the Wildlings to rebuild and start a new. That he didn’t die (still a zombie, eh?) makes his ending beautiful in a way: still has a purpose.
T’was a very appropriate ending as far as happy ones go. What needed to be done is done. It all fits. Makes sense. Rough season to swallow, but still better than the entirety of TV now. We’ll never see another like it. #nowwatching #cinephile #lovemovies #cinema #movies #movie #film #cinephilecommunity #gameofthrones #emiliaclarke #kitharington #maisiewilliams #sophieturner #peterdinklage #aryastark #danerystargaryen #jonsnow #forthethrone
