‘Game of Thrones’ Season 6 Finale Review: Winter is here finally

The Winds of Winter has brought change to The Great Game in Game of Thrones

**Warning a red raven has been sent, and spoilers are coming**
Last night’s Game of Thrones, was all about returns and departures. First up we found out what friends Varys was talking about and what his plans were, along with another powerful ally Olenna Tyrell. If you remember in the episode of No One, Varys and Tyrion parted ways because he was headed back to Westeros to meet some friends that has power and ships. Well in last night’s episode we find out who those friends were and they just so happened to be… The ladies of Dorne. Olenna is absolutely brimming with rage and wants revenge, and Varys offers blood and fire, and we are assuming she took his offer. Think about Varys’ offering the ladies of Dorne revenge on the Lannisters for what they did to Oberyn, they are sold!
Kicking off “Winds of Winter” we have the trail of Loras Tyrell, and he admits his crimes, and begs for mercy from the seven gods and his punishment he was marked as a sparrow.{No lands, titles, wife, or children and no claim to Highgarden.}  Now you swing to the Grand Maister heading to the trial, and is approached by a small child, and is whispered something. Once the High Sparrow realizes that Cersei has not shown up for her trial, he sends the sparrows to fetch her. The lead sparrow’s attention is turned to a small child as well. The feeling of bad stuff is about to happens overwhelmed us all. And then it hits us like a hundred stab wounds.. Grand Maister is killed by a group of kids, and the lead sparrow is left to struggle alone. Cersei killed everyone in the cept, with her Dragon Fire, and Tommen leaps to his death after witnessing what has happened. Cersei tortures the sister and then introduces the Mountain to have playtime. Let’s recap this:[Margerie is dead, Tommen jumps to his death, the High sparrow is dead, the Sparrows are dead, the entire cept is gone!] Ok you still with me? On to the next

'Game of Thrones' Season 6 Finale Review: Winter is here finally - NuRevue


“R+L=J”, an abbreviation of “Rhaegar + Lyanna = Jon”—proposes that Jon is actually the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Ned’s sister Lyanna Stark. In Bran’s quest for knowledge which is located in our season 6 finale synopsis article we break down all the speculation and one of those was we would get confirmation that Jon Snow is infact a Stark and a Targaryen, which means he has full right to the iron throne. Ned Stark made a promise to Lyanna, that he would protect him and not let anyone know his true identity, so Ned claimed him as a bastard of his. Jon Snow is actually… *Whisper* Stark-Targaryen. But they made sure we couldn’t hear his first name!!

Speaking of Jon Stark-Targaryen, Jon is finally back in Winterfell. Davos. We were right! Davos wanted her to admit what she did,  about burning princess Stannis at the stake. Jon warns Melisandre she will be hanged if she returns to the North and makes her ride south. Jon and Sansa make a pact to trust one another because of how many enemies they have now.  Sansa informs Jon that a White raven was sent from citadel. Oh and don’t forget Jon is now the King of the North and called the White Wolf.. kind of catchy right? Speaking of white wolf, where is Ghost? {Glover, Mormont, and a few other houses pledge to the King of the North, OH! and  Baelish will have to die.}

Sam has finally reached the citadel, and has been granted access to the great library. But now Little Sam and Gilly are on the outside, while Sam awaits to speak with the Grand Maister of the Citadel. so that was left without any kind of insight, other than he has to explain the inaccuracies of the Citadel’s records.

Daario won’t be joining the war efforts in Westeros because he was commanded to stay in murine, bay of dragons(Formerly known as Slaver’s Bay). Tyrion and the queen talk strategy, and Tyrion advises Dany she is in the great game. One special part of the episode that really touched all of us, was when Tyrion was made Hand of the Queen, and he looked like he was going to cry.

Speaking of Walder Frey and his family, guess what…? Arya stark is back! And she has knocked walder frey of her list! By chopping up Walder’s kids and then feeding them to him. {Gross!} But what was even better was Arya was dressed as a maiden, and then slit Walder’s throat and watched him bleed to death{GASP!} Who is next?

Littlefinger reveals his intentions to Sansa,  and wants to rule the iron throne and her by his side. Sansa has wised up for the most part, because she declined his offer and walked away from him after making it clear that he is only it it for himself.

Bran is at the wall,  Uncle Benjen reveals that magic spells keep dead from entering.  By touching the weeping tree Bran  has a vision which allows him to follow a  Young Ned Stark. Which then shows a very frail and very dying  Lyanna Stark. Jon Snow’s name is whispered and guess what… Jon is a Targaryen/Stark-[the world goes nuts!]

Jamie returns to a smoking city, only to see Cersei sit on the iron throne (the world will burn)


So to end the episode you have the Greyjoys, Tyrell’s, Dorne, The unsullied, The Dothraki, 3 dragons, and one hell of a fleet sailing for westeros. Sounds like a bad bar joke{lol}, and did I mention{Wow what a fleet!!}
