I go to sleep in an extremely happy mood after watching the latest episode of Game of Thrones for a variety of different reasons. A lot of bad people died in this episode from the slavers of Slaver’s Bay to Ramsay Snow, which is something you do not get often on Game of Thrones. I have seen bad people getting away with whatever sin they wanted so many times that I just wanted the good guys to win for a change.
In Meereen, Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen unleashed her full power upon the invading slavers, possessing more than four times their numbers and three full grown dragons! After being so greatly crushed and humiliated, the slavers will fear her name for generations to come! In addition, word of Daenerys’s decisive victory in Meereen will spread across the Known World and the lords of the Seven Kingdoms will come to fear and respect her when she crosses the Narrow Sea. Now that Theon and Yara Grejoy have joined Daenerys’s cause and she captured what remained of the slaver’s fleet, she now has the means to transport her legions across the sea and reconquer the Seven Kingdoms! My only concern is whether or not she has enough ships. Other than that, I look forward to her invasion of fire and blood!
As for the North, I am completely pleased that House Stark actually won something because I hate it when bad things happen to good people. Now their family has been avenged with the extinction of House Bolton and death of Ramsay Snow. I have imagined Ramsay’s death for so many years so it feels great to finally have some closure. The Bolton banners hanging around Winterfell were such complete eyesores that it is soothing to see the Stark banners hanging from Winterfell and House Stark back where they belong.
