Winter has Come and Our Watch has Ended.

960x0

Well after Eight seasons and the only question being who shall finally sit on the Iron Throne, we find the answer is no one!  Even Daenerys didn’t get to sit on it for one second after the final battle!  Are you disappointed with the finale or are you happy with the way it all turned out and it was not all wrapped up with a neat bow?

My only thought is about Jon Snow and I may be missing it here but he obviously did the deed that no one else wanted to do but was punished for it by being sent back to the Wall where his journey really began.  However he goes through the gates at the end with Ghost and the Wildlings and to me that means that he has given up the Nights Watch and is making his life with the Wildlings as their King.  He did say in Episode 5 that he wished he was going back beyond the wall so that is where I think he has gone but everyone else seems to think that he is just going on patrol and escorting the Wildlings back but I don’t think so as he looks back when the gate comes down, as if saying goodbye.

My other thought at the end when Tyrion, as Hand of the King, is holding the first Small Council Meeting and they are all there, yes younger versions of the original small council members, that it is just the same as the first Season, which means that nothing really changes.  They are still arguing about the same things!!!!

I cannot wait for the book to finally be published to see all the intricate details of all the other characters that surround the main story to see how that all plays out, so please hurry up and publish please Mr Martin!

I think that whenever these epics end, like Avengers: End Game, you feel a sense of loss but hopefully the Prequals, of which I have one of the books to read, will be as good.  I am a little sorry the way it ended and that Daenerys did not get to reign after all that she had been through but then again her personality changed so I suppose it was a fitting ending!  Out of them all I think Jon got the raw deal but then if my theory above is accurate he did get what he wanted in the end.

After this I don’t think I will be watching much TV as all my favourite shows have ended and there are only a few left and I have not found any to replace them.  However that means more time I can spend doing other things like Quilting, sorting the Boys Memory Books out, gardening, spring cleaning, decorating.  Plenty of things to fill my time.

I hope you all had a good weekend.  I decided not to do any quilting as my eyes were very sore and everything ached so I had a weekend doing nothing!!!!  It did feel good actually to not do a lot!!!!  Next weekend is another three day weekend when we are going to finish the Spring Cleaning and also hopefully get some gardening done too!

Hugs, Susie xx

    It is always hard when a show we have become attached to ends. Did you see the water bottle sorta hiding behind the actor’s leg in that one shot? I always wonder how the out of place items aren’t seen by anyone in the course of editing a show or movie, yet fans seem to find them immediately. Like the coffee cup that was forgotten on a table a few weeks ago. I’m glad you had a restful weekend.

    I agree with you I was ok with how it ended except for Jon Snow being sent back to the Wall but I did think it was great that he got Ghost back. I always had hoped that Nymeria would find her way back to Arya and am sorry that didn’t happen. One thought that I had is that they tried to put too much into a shorter season and maybe it would have been better to slow things down a little bit. Anyway we do know who became the new King finally and it will be interesting to see how the books differ if they do.
