Reaction – Season 6 Game of Thrones

GoT_season_6_official_posterI think my short reaction to the latest season of Game of Thrones is just OH MY GOSH!! This season just blew me away. After season 5 I was slightly disappointed in the series as a whole. They had done some good things, but in season 5 the show just felt a little lost. This season they really took the show and the story to the next level.

Now a couple of my favorite things about this season has been the women in power, and the reveal of some great fan theories. The female characters in this season have owned every episode that they have been in and it has been fantastic.

I think the big issue I have with this season is that they threw out any concept of time continuity and everything happened at the speed of plot. Now this kept the pace really exciting and with a limited number of episodes left in the series it really helped move the story forward, but there were definitely some ridiculous moments as a result. At the same time I am super excited to see where they take this story in the next couple of seasons! (Spoilers for Game of Thrones for season 6 after the jump.)

Wild Speculation – Game of Thrones, Season 6

GoT_season_6_official_posterIt’s happened, the thing that I feel like most fans predicted when the show began. Game of Thrones, the HBO show returning this weekend, has out-paced A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series it is (was) based on. It’s become a meme, practically, of things that George R.R. Martin is doing rather than writing… but even if the next book were coming out next month, it would be too late for the show!

I haven’t looked this up, since I doubt anyone has a solid answer on it anyway… how much of this season is based on what will end up in the books? And how much is just building off of what came before? On the one hand, I feel like they must be privy to at least broad strokes. On the other hand, it felt like they went completely off the rails last season – and that was a season with books out to back it up!

I also haven’t really watched the trailers. I just haven’t been as excited. But there are trailers… so how about one of those? And then some spoilers and wild speculation after the jump!

There are a few things though that we are really excited about that are going to happen during season 5.  Continue reading
