Hello, people who are reading this, and welcome (back) to my blog.
If you didn’t know it already I’m a huge fan of “Game of Thrones”. I’m that fan that has read all the book and watched the series multiple times. In my family, it’s kind of a tradition to watch the episodes together (But both my brother and I cheat all the time, since we can’t wait, and then rewatch it later with our parents…). So sadly, as many of you know, next season is the last season ever (And this one was just seven episodes, I want more!) and I’m in mourning. Not just because I only have a couple of hours left of “Game of Thrones” but also because I have to wait a whole year for the next season (There are even rumours that we may have to wait TWO years before the final season. I can’t wait that long. I’m not even sure that I can wait one year…).
But, let’s talk about season seven. *SPOILER ALERT* (I have warned you!) So let’s begin with Ed Sheeran. I fluffing love Ed, he’s one of my favourite musicians. And since I live in Sweden, and the episodes air on Mondays instead on Sundays here, I, of course, knew all about Ed’s cameo. Which pretty much sucks (BTW, I loved his cameo and was pretty sure that Arya would kill him.), I can’t go online on Sunday’s or Mondays without seeing spoilers. It’s impossible since “Game of Thrones” is like the most popular show ever. And the thing about spoilers, once you see them you can’t unsee them and it ruins the whole mystery of the episode. Anyway, this season is the best one yet and the last episode was amazing. I loved that Sansa finally outsmarted little-finger and that she and Arya are once again on semi good terms. The fact that Jamie finally worked up the guts to walk away from Cersei (Go Jamie. I’m rooting for him and Brienne, even though it would have been fun to see her and Tormund together. I wanted to see their giant warrior-babies… But he’s probably dead, so…) was awesome. Theon finally regained some of his confidence and decided to save his sister. The fact that Jon and Dany finally had sex (The sexual tension was killing me.). It’s both a yay and a nay moment because they both deserve each other but she’s his aunt (gross). When the wall fell it was one of the best/worst moments ever. Since it’s an awesome cliffhanger and now it’s real, the white-walkers are coming and winter is here. But I would have liked for the characters to get a happy ending, and that the white-walkers would just die or something. But, it’s “Game of Thrones” and George R.R Martin has said that the ending will be bittersweet. Which probably means that one or more of my favourite characters will die.
My favourite character has changed over the years of me watching the series. I actually watched the first season right when it came out, with my parents (My brother was too young). But imagen the shock for me, as an innocent twelve-year-old, when Dany got raped in the first episode. My parents clearly didn’t know what the series was about and I spent the first season with my hands over my eyes whenever there was a sex-scene or something violent. In conclusion, I didn’t see much of the episodes… But back to the point, my favourite character. In the beginning, it was actually Sansa (I know right. But remember, I was twelve…) I can’t really remember why, but knowing me in sixth grade it was probably because she wore pretty dresses and was about the same age as me. After I abandoned Sansa I liked Arya (And she’s been in my top three ever since the middle of season one.). I wanted to be like her, brave and able to defend myself. One of my favourites was Margary as well as Cersei since they both were cunning beautiful women who knew exactly how to get what they wanted. I, of course, liked Dany ever since she got her dragons (I liked her before but much more after the dragons were born.). Sam has alway had a place in my heart as well since he’s a huge bookworm and wants to help but doesn’t feel like he’s good enough. Tyrion is also amazing, not just because he’s played by Peter Dinklage, but the fact that he’s a valuable asset without being some brute warrior. I had a huge crush on both Rob and Jon but then Rob died and all my love went to Jon. My favourite characters right now are between Dany, Jon and Arya. The thing about “Game of Thrones” is that as soon as you get attached to one particular character it dies. So I’ve decided to love Dany, Arya and Jon equally and hope that one of them survives.
So, I’m ending it here. I could go on and on about “Game of Thrones” and my theories as well as opinions but no one would want to read it all in one go. So I’ve decided to split it up and will most likely talk about it some more another time.
Fun fact! My last name isn’t Snow it’s something else. I chose Snow because it’s what bastards in the north is called and I’m from Sweden which is kinda north (It’s cold anyways…).
Until next time, xoxo Ella.
