Game Of Thrones left us with to chew over as we eagerly await the season finale. In we saw a battle of epic proportions as Jon took on Ramsay while over in Meereen, Dany took back what is hers (on dragon back — ). But now we are at the finale and things are only going to continue to heat up — take a look at the preview:
As excited as I am for the finale, I feel the nerves creeping up as I start to wonder which mighty character will meet their maker in the super extended episode. Let’s take a look at some of the options:
Sweet naive Tommen has a lot to answer for. While he is arguably the nicest character on the show, he’s a little too nice — and too naive — for the world of Westeros. While in store for the High Sparrow, Tommen appears to be enthralled by the preacher and completely beholden to everything that he has to say.
Tommen has allowed his mother and wife to be humiliated and now he has removed Cersei’s chances of her desired trial by combat — certainly Tommen will have to pay for what he has done, whether it be at the hands of the Mountain or his mother — or perhaps the High Sparrow. Hopefully neither of these options will come to fruition, but this is Game Of Thrones we’re talking about.
Melisandre can’t seem to get a break. For years, she was painted as a dark, sinister character who had ulterior motives, and then the Shireen incident caused the fandom to launch an attack her. Miraculously, the character saw a complete turn around this season when she became a fan favorite after resurrecting Jon Snow. However, this happiness could be short lived, as Davos — who was essentially Shireen’s surrogate father — has discovered the truth.
With Melisandre now on Davos’ radar, could she be the next one feeling the heat? Remember, we’ve still a lot to learn about this mysterious character — the earlier in the season means that there is so much storyline still left unturned — perhaps Melisandre has more to her than meets the eye and we need to discover what power she possesses before it’s too late.
The High Sparrow
The Faith storyline has been one of my absolute favorites that the show has ever covered and while I would be sad to see it end, I feel that it’s working towards its conclusion. Also, the High Sparrow has to pay for what he forced Margaery, Loras, and Cersei to endure. With the Mountain by Cersei’s side, I think the Sparrow is likely to be the next one condemned for his sins. Forget the walk of atonement, he’ll be lucky if he still has his skull by the end of the season.
Poor Loras has barely had any screen time this season. If my memory serves me correctly, he’s had one scene and that scene consisted of him begging his sister Margaery to make his punishment stop. Now that Loras will stand trial, I can’t help but feel that it could be the end for him. Having said that, Margaery is so evidently concocting a plan behind the Sparrow’s back and this plan only arose following her visit with Loras, so perhaps Margaery will strike when the Sparrow least expects it and save her brother in the process.
It would be a shame for Loras to die — he’s often had some of the best scenes in the series. Let’s hope Margaery will act before it’s too late.
