If you have not yet watched the last episode of Game of Thrones yet, stop reading now. Seriously, Ron Weasley would tell you to check out your priorities.

If you háve watched it you’ll probably agree with me that it’s not a victory for feminism. For years we have been applauding a strong female character or two. One who has said she will not knit by the fire while men fight for her (Lady Mormont) and another even wants to claim the throne for herself (the mother of Dragons). Neither of them made it. Especially the last death was difficult to swallow because the aftertaste is one of ‘she was a woman so she was unfit to rule, see she became hysterical so she had to die.’ And what do we say to that? Fuck that shit.
It has been very obvious that 6 episodes was not enough to get us, viewers, on the same page. The episode contained very few dialogue so we just had to take it from the men close to Daenerys that she was indeed going mad.  We would have liked to see some more proof of that. On the whole this season was rather lacking in dialogue. Which is a pity because the cast is excellent. In fact I was only starting to really liking the show again when the new ruler of Westeros was bickering with the hand of the king. So here’s how the showrunners can make it up to me: a comedy series. 20 minutes per episode, mainly consisting of Bran the Broken squabbling with his hand. Because, face it, that verbal chess between the two of them was the best part of the last episode.
I also thought about a title: ‘Talk to the hand’. Maybe the sister of the king can also make appearances in between her journeys to the far ends of the world. And maybe, maybe she’ll also visit Storm’s End at some point. Or am I asking for too much now?
