***SPOILER ALERT** If you have not yet watched the Season 5 finale of Game of Thrones, stop reading. This post contains spoilers.
Last night’s Game of Thrones Season 5 Finale was pretty intense. If you have not read the books, and were going in to the show totally blind, there were some shocking deaths. There were also some that we have been hoping for. This is my small tribute to those that we lost.
I don’t know about you, but I hated Myranda from the moment she was introduced. Ramsay Bolton is a crazy dude and I do not like him at all. Not one little bit. So of course, his little girlfriend, Myranda was not on my favorites list either. After threatening Sansa Stark, last night, Theon Greyjoy finally grew his balls back and pushed her over the side the wall in the Winterfell Castle. She hit the ground with a splat. She will not be hunting down people for fun with Ramsay anymore.
2. Meryn Trant
Arya has been saying his name over and over for quite sometime. Last night, she stole a face from the Many Faced God and pretended to be a girl in a whore house. The scene that followed was amazing. Arya did not just kill him, she stabbed him in the eyes, in the chest, and then slit his throat. It was amazing.
3. Stannis and Selyse Baratheon
Stannis and Selyse Baratheon both died last night, but not together. Selyse hung herself because she could not deal with what they did to their daughter (good!) and Stannis died on the battlefield trying to take over Winterfell. It was not that simple either. Brienne of Tarth was able to avenge Renly Baratheon’s death – finally. Being a book reader, I was pleased with this little twist. Breinne deserved that “win”.
4. Myrcella Baratheon
This was a twist I did not see coming as well. Although, when I saw Ellaria kiss her right on the lips as she left, I just knew that she had poisoned her. I feel bad for Jaime because she had just told him that she accepted him as her father – and was proud to have him as a father even.
5. Jon Snow
This is the death that has the internet stirring this morning. Jon Snow, arguably the most popular character in the show, was stabbed (a lot) by the men of the Night’s Watch. Many people thought he might become King eventually. Even Olly, his personal steward, plunmged a knife into Jon. It was a heartbreaking moment. Et tu, Olly?
