Last week I mentioned that the previous episode broke the internet, let’s re-phrase that to it almost did. This week’s finale episode of Game of Thrones, DEFINITELY broke the internet. Now book readers only know very little more than TV viewers. The show is almost caught up, but there a few stories still left from A Dance with Dragons. Season 6 will encompass the rest of that novel and the new one, if it ever comes out. This week’s episode was awesome, sad, crazy and chaotic all wrapped into one and left fans hanging on a thin thread of hope for what is to come.
Let’s talk about what happened on the final episode of the season.
This week’s episode of Game of Thrones was mind blowing to say the least. I think some of the scenes that went down (I won’t write it here in case someone is not caught up) broke the internet. I mean I’m not going to lie I was upset with that big moment that happened, which deviated completely from the book. Oh wait, I thought they were book changes, but the producers of the show have confirmed that George RR Martin said these things would happen. Ok, that really makes me mad, how do you spoil a book like that! Come on George, I thought you primarily wrote the books to tell a specific story and make readers excited, not to please HBO? I won’t rant anymore about that! But overall an interesting episode that made me both cry and yell in excitement!
Let’s dive in and talk about what went down (screaming internally).
Episode 8 of Game of Thrones was fantastic! Bravo, one of the best episodes yet. Season 5 has not been my absolute favorite, but it redeemed itself with the Hardhome story. Characters are finally coming together and various stories are quickly unraveling.
I think the next final episodes are going to impress like no other and take the story to another level (at least I hope so).
Let’s jump right into the recap and discuss some of the best wtf and omg moments.
