Game of Thrones season 5

The finale of the fifth season of Game of Thrones has left viewers with more questions than answers. The shocking scenes and unforeseen deaths that made up “Mother’s Mercy” caused the internet go berserk, and my little heart to break.

Spoilers ahead, including major character death.

Game of Thrones season 5

This week, I was reminded why I love Game of Thrones. Why despite its shortcomings, I still watch week after week.

I feel as though I’ve been waiting and waiting for that one moment—the kind that makes you sit on the edge of your seat, the kind that makes you fist pump the air because it’s so fucking awesome. The last time I felt like that was in season 3 when Daenerys Stormborn, last of House Targaryen, was a badass in “And Now His Watch Has Ended.” You remember. This week’s “The Dance of Dragons” (a nice little homage to the title of book 5), was exactly what I needed to reaffirm my following of this ridiculous amazing show.

Major spoilers ahead. Proceed with caution.

Game of Thrones season 5

After last week’s rant, we now return to our regularly scheduled programming.

Thus far in season 5, our huge ensemble cast has gotten themselves into the following situations: Cersei has allied herself with religious fanatics hoping to regain the power she once had; Jaime is on a suicide mission in Dorne; Tyrion has been kidnapped by Ser Jorah and subsequently captured by slavers; Arya is beginning her mysterious training at the House of White and Black; Sansa has been married off to Ramsay Bolton at Winterfell while Brienne waits and watches from afar; Jon has become Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch; Daenerys has decided she must wed for political reasons; and last, but not least, Stannis Baratheon marches from Castle Black to Winterfell on his mission to take back the North and put Roose Bolton’s head on a spike.

*Spoilers ahead*



Even those who don’t watch HBO’s Game of Thrones with any regularity have undoubtedly heard about the backlash created by Sunday’s episode, “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken.” The groundbreaking show, which has always been unafraid and unapologetic about showing unwarranted violence and sexual assault, may have finally crossed one too many lines. Is “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken” the straw that broke the camel’s back?

Trigger warning: this post discusses a gratuitous rape scene. If this is a trigger for you, please read no further than the summary. 

Spoilers ahead.


Thus far in season 5, Cersei has allied herself with religious fanatics; Jaime is on a covert mission to the dangerous country of Dorne; Tyrion is on his way to meet the Mother of Dragons; Daenerys has a group of murderers and her wild dragons to deal with; Sansa is engaged to Ramsay Bolton; Arya is becoming no one; and Jon Snow is Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch. Also, blood and boobs. Boobs everywhere.

Proceed with caution!

Though it isn’t the first time Game of Thrones has deviated from its source material, some things took a drastic turn away from the books in episode 4, “Sons of the Harpy.” As it stands, not even those who have read Martin’s work can predict what will happen next.

If you dislike spoilers, venture no further.
