What a mixture of emotions!
Our reactions to tonight’s episode of Game of Thrones ranged everywhere from yes to no to sad tears to the happiest tears we’ve ever cried, ending with a huge round of applause. It was actually kind of exhausting.
First, the good news!
Our fears from last week were put to rest when Jon didn’t actually leave Castle Black, meaning he was there when Sansa, Brienne, and Podrick arrived, which meant that we got a VERY long-awaited Stark family reunion between Jon and Sansa.
It was actually sweet as hell, even if they couldn’t quite agree on what to do next. Jon just wanted to get out, but he didn’t want to fight anymore, or be responsible for any more deaths. Sansa wanted to head straight back to Winterfell to take back their home from the Boltons.
She didn’t yet know that Roose was dead, but she found out when Jon received a letter from Ramsay that detailed exactly what he planned to do to Jon and his friends and family if Sansa was not returned to him. There was rape involved, and murder, and eyeball scooping. You know, Ramsay’s usual jams. They probably would have ignored the letter if it didn’t’ also reveal that Rickon was locked up in a dungeon, so it seems that Jon Snow’s days of fighting are not yet over.Share:
