Team Stark is on one side…. Definitely south. But especially around the time of season six — when the women of Game of Thrones began to seize power and cast off the men who had oppressed, assaulted, and raped them — the show developed a certain cachet about breaking the Westeros version of the patriarchy. Did it earn this cachet honestly? But it certainly came up whenever TV critics, including this one , wrote about the show at that time.
Cersei was already a terrible person. Dany does her whole heel turn thing. And on and on. They rode bravely into the darkness, with Jorah and Ghost alongside them.
And one by one, all their lights went out. Nearly all the Dothraki were decimated by the army of the wights. Jorah rode back, barely surviving.
It's a good episode, but it gives me the feeling that this is not nearing the end of an 8-season show. Feels like we're just getting warmed up for 2 or 3 more seasons. Instead, we get 2 more eps? I'm sensing an unsatisfying finish. It was rushed I don't understand the decision to cut the length of the last 2 series. Episode 2. Episode 3. Hulu Live. Medium quality. View all CFB Sites.
My therapist would be so proud of her. One last interaction from the dining hall needs to be addressed: a short but important conversation between the Hound and Sansa. The common throughline of this Game of Thrones season is powerful woman fighting for what they deem to be theirs.
Cersei is ready to defend her place on the Iron Throne after conniving her way there. Daenerys is ready to take back her birthright. The New Yorker.
