I have about ten minutes before I have to leave for work and no time to write after so I thought I would say something about the end of Game of Thrones.
Caution Spoilers Ahead
I started the story of Game of Thrones years ago with the books. I was invested enough to ask my wife to walk to the DC library from her office to get one of the books for me because they got it before I could get it from my library. I’ve been reading and watching for a long time and had my favorite characters and thoughts on how I would end the series. It did not end with the king I expected or wanted. I think it was an odd choice, but I’m not the writer, so I have no say in the end. I was happy about the fate of most of the characters left alive at the end.
Sansa declares the north an independent country and is Queen of the North.
Arya is off on adventures.
Jon is with the wildlings north of the wall and free from all of the politics he hated and was bad at.
Tyrion is Hand of the King and doing what he does best – drinking(I assume) and knowing things.
Bronn got his castle and control of the kingdom’s money.
Davos is in charge of the Navy.
Brienne is Commander of the King’s Guard.
Sam is Grand Maester.
Podrick is a knight.
The season felt rushed. It needed more episodes. I think Bran was an odd choice to end up on the throne, but overall, I was satisfied with the end for most of the characters.
