Ramin Djawadi is a treasure we don’t deserve.

I will not talk about the Game of Thrones finale. The horse is dead.

But I will talk about the staff that put their blood, sweat, and tears into this project and receive little public acknowledgement for their efforts.

Among them is Ramin Djawadi, whose music I hold largely responsible for tricking so many people into taking any of this seriously. Nearly every memorable scene from the show is permanently linked in my mind with one of this iconic tracks.

!! There probably be SPOILERS here !!

Turd Polisher of the Year Award Goes to Emilia Clarke – Also, why none of this makes any sense

Let me first say, that this was an incredible episode of television. It was wildly impressive and entertaining. So many people put in their best work, from the actors, to directors, animators, composer, editors, costume design, set design, on and on and on.

And I really mean that. Every single person that toiled to make this happen did an incredible job.

It’s a shame that they’ll be associated with one of the worst endings in television in history because the writers are the only people in the team that can’t carry their weight.

!! SPOILER ALERT FOR SEASON 8 EPISODE 5: THE BELLS !!

The Battle for Winterfell was a Polished Turd

Hi everyone. Allow me to share with you my favorite scene in this third episode of the final season:












Beautiful.

This is going to be a very hasty, reactionary post. It was an incredibly dark episode that I watched at a bar viewing party, and I spent most of it having zero idea what was going on. Maybe some of my opinions will change on a second, more illuminated viewing, but for now. Here we go.

!! HERE IS YOUR SPOILER WARNING !!

Crypts, Dark Family Secrets, & Ice Zombies – My Game of Thrones Tinfoil Theories

This week: Episode 2.

A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms was a slow episode that will be remembered more fondly as time goes by. Reminiscent of the quiet moments leading up to Blackwater, complete with a melancholy song sung by Pod, it felt like a farewell. This may be the last time we see these characters alive and well. When it’s over, we will return to this episode to mourn, and remember them as they were.

It’s all going to go down from here. Next week, the White Walkers finally hit Winterfell, and I don’t expect the pace to slow until the end.

Like everyone else, I have some wild theories about what’s going to go down. Let’s put on our tinfoil hats and throw our bets!

SPOILER WARNING FOR THE WHOLE SHOW, THE BOOKS,
YOUR LIFE, AND YOUR MOM

Disclaimer: these theories are not wholly my own. I read a lot of forums that figure stuff out for me. This is my tinfoil Frankenstein.
