So, as everyone is probably aware, Game of Thrones Season 6 premiered Sunday night.
I have a love/hate relationship with this show. It started out as love…. Until it got to season 4.
The first three seasons of the show were amazing. They were extremely accurate to the books. I allowed for some changed because you couldn’t do everything exactly and I got that. My biggest pet peeve from the first 3 seasons was the name changes. But you can only have so many Roberts and Osha/Asha characters running around before it starts to get confusing.
Since then it’s been more of a hate relationship. This is where the spoilers will begin in case you didn’t believe my warning before.
Last chance to turn back.
First I’ll start with Sansa. What the actual fuck are they doing to her character. She became one of my absolute favorites in the later books. Such a conniving little badass with Littlefinger …. Why the hell is she married to Ramsay Bolton?! And her and Theon trying to escape and Brienne coming to save her …. Last we see of Brienne in the books she and Podrick are being hung by Lady Stoneheart aka Catelyn Stark who, I might add, never comes back into the show even though Thoros is supposed to resurrect her! Back to Theon and Sansa, why does it look like she went from hating him to looking to him for advice in a matter of episodes … I don’t get that.
And what’s up with Tyrion being in Meeren with Dany?! He’s not supposed to meet her yet! He’s supposed to meet another, very interesting character who is supposed to blow your mind! (I’m not saying anything more about this because it might still come into play).
And don’t even get me started on Myrcella’s death and Jaime going to Dorne to get her 🙄 I don’t even know where that came from. Jaime is supposed to be in the Riverlands when Cersi is imprisoned. And Myrcella was very much alive last I heard about her in the books. But this was supposed to be Jaime’s big character development in the books too! He starts to look like a leader and to be strong even when his world is crumbling around him.
Arya and Cersei’s storylines I’m very happy with. And I really enjoyed the twist with the Sandsnakes last night. I was hoping we would see more of them in the show!
Jon …. Well I think the sacrifice of Shireen at the end of last season is going to play a part in him coming back to life. It was meant for Stannis but maybe it was for Jon unknowingly. We shall see though!
End rant! 📚
