Game of Thrones Season 6 – Season Review
It was a pretty good season. But you don’t need me to tell you that.
TL;DR This season, now free of the shadows of “the books,” is able to finally push ahead, and some of our heroes actually win for once. Who knew Game of Thrones had that in it? Some early-season sags and occasionally groan-worthy fanservice bog things down, but it’s expected.
It wouldn’t be Game of Thrones without tits.
Look, there’s been so much coverage on Game of Thrones that I hardly feel compelled to go on too much about it. As far as the synopsis for the season goes, we get the obligatory weak threads with the Iron Islands succession drama (who cares?); the Faith Militant’s lingering bullshit; and more Meereen bureaucracy. But hey, by the end of the season, Jon and Sansa have Winterfell back; Daenerys, now united with not only Tyrion, but Theon, too, is finally (FUCKING FINALLY) on her way to Westeros; Arya leaves her agonisingly slow assassin school; and Cersei literally blows up everything in her way. That’s a winning season for me, baby.
I could take or leave Bran, though. Unless he does more time travelling.
This is where I’d usually do the pros/cons sections, but it’s Game of Thrones. The level of evangelism around this show is, impressively, yet to diminish (take that, The Walking Dead). You don’t need me on this one. I’m only posting this review because I reviewed all the other seasons. And this one was good.
But goddamn, I don’t want to see Cersei lose the throne.
