*This post was written before Game of Thrones Season Six Episode Four premiered. It is in response to Episode Three: Oathbreaker.
Don’t mind me. I’m just over here crying for fictional characters. It’s a thing I’m used to, being a book nerd. I am in full mourning for Shaggy Dog. I have been enamored with the Stark direwolves since they very first episode. I mourned the loss of Lady and Grey Wind as well. I knew Jon Snow was gonna be fine because Ghost was fine and now I know poor, innocent baby Rickon is doomed because… well… Ramsey, but beyond that, Shaggy Dog is gone. I just can’t.
It is clear that none of these characters understand:
- The long game
- The White Walkers are coming! No of this is going to matter if you’re all dead.
I have consumed nothing but Game of Thrones related stories. Here are some of my favorites:
Elite Daily- Bran Theory
Arts.Mic- Hodor Theory
Also Nerdette does a fantastic recap podcast with Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me’s Peter Sagal. I have just been listening to the episodes on repeat. They post generally at about 3:00 p.m. on Mondays. I believe they are going to have a live event at the close of the season. I’m looking forward to attending.
That’s all for me this week!
