Who saw or may I say experienced the unfortunate ending of Game of Thrones episode 6 last night?
Just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse for Sansa Stark, last night happened! For many Game of Thrones fans, last night may have been the straw that broke the camel’s back. Twitterverse was on fire with comments made by not just women, but men as well! Many said they would never watch Game of Thrones again, others said it was the most uncomfortable ending yet, while others began cursing the show’s producers with “You’ll regret your choice” or something rather…
We’ve all wondered at one point or another why in the world would there be anyone who opted for not watching GoT, and this may have given us a glimpse as to the answer to that question… We all know what Game of Thrones is about and most of us have read the books and last night’s uncomfortable ending was something that seemed to have been pulled out of a hat rather than the books. HOWEVER, for those who have read the books, in George RR Martin’s fourth novel entitled A Feast for Crows, you’ll recall Petyr Baelish (Little Finger) dressing up Jeyne Poole to look like Arya Stark who was promised to Roose Bolton’s legitimate bastard son Ramsay Bolton. The Boltons figure out the switcheroo and what Ramsay does to poor Jeyne Poole is unfathomable!
If you think about it, this is exactly what the show’s producers did with Sansa Stark… They switched the rolls – Sansa Stark in the show is now experiencing the agony of Jeyne Poole in the book. Whether you’re a fan of the books, a fan of the show, or both, the same question is posed to all the above… Do you feel last night’s ending was necessary?
With exception to Arya’s acceptance into the “Faceless Inner Sanctum” & the surprise appearance of Lost’s Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, I found the episode to be a total disappointment. With all the hoopla about the Sand Snakes, their plan to exact revenge on the Lannisters for their father’s death, and their fighting skills, I expected more than just their arrest. Then we have the lame young Tommen Baratheon, which is as limp in his resolve (or lack thereof) as king as he is as a husband. I get that he’s young and I get that he’s being played by both sides, but this is King’s Landing & you’re a freakin Lannister Damn It!!!
Did you think Game of Thrones episode 6 to be falling short of moral and storyline?
