Winter has arrived. This is perhaps an ideal way to sum up the season 6 finale of the show. As it is, it exploded everything and totally re-set the political board for the seventh season.
Things that used to matter highly, like the High Sparrow and the Faith are completely gone. Furthermore, old seats of power have been possessed. By the way, did we mention that blast?
We can hardly wait to see where the show will take us in Season 7. Here’s what we can hope to see next.
1. After Jon’s Ascent, A Fallout From Sansa And Possibly Littlefinger
The King in the North, however not the Queen in the North? That is the question Miss Sansa Stark might ask herself after her brother (or cousin rather) is proclaimed King by the Northmen. Jon might have made a fuss about how Sansa was the Lady of Winterfell and slept in the biggest room in the palace. However, he didn’t precisely turn down this power and this respect he’s been longing for his whole life as a bastard when was offered it. Sansa grinned along the event, yet the smile darkened a short while after Littlefinger gave her a look.
In the in the background cuts that were after the episode, Kit Harington and Sophie Turner both recognized this tension. It seems that all is not well in Winterfell. This is regardless of the fact that the direwolf banners have come back.
2. Twin Issues
Discussing questionable looks, we should discuss the one Jaime was sporting as he entered the Red Keep’s throne room. On doing so, he found his last kid dead and his sister and lover sitting on the Iron Throne. That is the look of a man who doesn’t remember somebody he adores, who laments decisions he’s made and who doesn’t know where to go from here. As powerful as Cersei got to be in her King’s Landing coup, she is going to need a larger number of allies than just Qyburn and his birds. Her hold over the throne is shaky, considering she snatched it through trepidation. Jaime is an effective partner that she likely expected to have. However she might not have him now.
What’s more, recollect that entire thing where Cersei went to see a fortune teller when she was a girl. So far, every last bit of her predictions have worked out as expected. Well one of them was that Cersei would die by the valonqar a Valyrian, which is a word for younger brother. Cersei may have thought this was a reference to her abhorred sibling Tyrion. However, has her frantic quest for power set her against Jaime?
