Game of Thrones

“When you play the Game of Thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle ground”

But what about after playing the Game of Thrones? There is a 10-month wait for the next 10 episodes to air. What am I going to do? I’m not a book reader, but I guess I’m going to buy the next book in the “A Song of Ice and Fire” series titled “The Winds of Winter” which is due to release this year. It’s like waiting for the latest gadget¬†to release. I feel like one of those many actors who won’t be returning to the show because of their untimely shocking deaths. At least I can wait for 10 months for the next season, but poor guys, they don’t get to return unless they turn into white walkers though! ūüėÄ

That has been the USP of the show – If you like a character then¬†he is surely gonna¬†die very soon and when you least expect it. Also¬†if you don’t like a¬†character then he will stay for a season or two. People’s¬†favorite Lord Eddard Stark didn’t survive the first season and characters like Ramsay Snow is still alive and kicking(quite literally)¬†till Season Five.

It’s like George R. R. Martin, the writer of the book, doesn’t like House Stark. Lord Eddard Stark and¬†anyone who is even closely related to him are¬†dead. Right from¬†Sansa Stark’s¬†direwolf “Lady” to¬†Ned’s¬†bastard son Jon Snow, almost everyone is dead. Oh come on, it took like Four¬†seasons of the show to kill the first Lannister and just the first¬†few¬†episodes of the show¬†to kill a Stark.¬†Gimme a break.

I expected Jon Snow to marry Daenerys Targaryen and rule Westeros together hence justifying the title of the book – A¬†Song of Ice and Fire, but after the Season Five’s finale it’s getting interesting. I know many will stop watching since Jon Snow is not going to return. One of my favorite characters too. In fact¬†I’ll be more disappointed if he returns in spite of those¬†stabs. They better start off Season Six properly. But no matter what happens, we will still watch the show ha ha ha ūüėõ ūüėÄ

April 2016, please come soon!

No more waiting for Mondays. Everybody hates Mondays, but I eagerly waited for the new Game of Thrones¬†episode. I need to find a filler TV show till the next season begins. Until then “Valar Morghulis”
