Game Of Thrones
If you’ve been tuned into the pop-culture phenomenon that is this TV show, you know it’s a bit twisted. But there is an air of hope that the show’s creators Benioff and Weiss leave you with, even though this season ends with the maximum kill-count of prominent characters in a still-magnificently-shot saga. (Exhaustive spoiler alert!) This is rumoured to be the penultimate episode of the franchise and there was a bit of immediacy with which several plot-points were kicked off further. The mother of dragons, Danerys, and the imp, Tyrion, set sail with the iron fleet and dragons in tow for Westeros. A touching show of trust between the unlikely twosome comes across in a poignantly shot scene. Meanwhile, Sansa and Jon Snow have rallied houses in their support with the ‘bastard’ heralded ‘the king in the north’. Oh, and coming back to the series of deaths that put Raman Raghav 2.0 to shame, the series still has a pitch-black villain in Cersei. The Lannister lady blew up all her religious fanatic friends and the queen along with her brother, courtesy some leftover wildfire. Arya Stark has been at her vengeful best, cooking up two of Walder Frey’s sons, before carving him up as well. And the chronicler of the past, little Bran, has had a vision which GoT fans have been howling about. You wouldn’t want to read about that too, would you?
