It’s that time of year again. April—Game of Thrones premiere. And we are finally on season 6 of 8. Originally I had thought that HBO signed for 7 seasons, as did everyone else. But recently media has told us there will be 8 seasons, albeit the last one much shorter than the previous years.
What are your thoughts? Does Jon Snow indeed die? My theory is that he has died, but he will be resurrected in some way. Rumor has it that Snow is Rhaegar Targaryen’s son with Lyanna Stark. And he’s a warg, like the rest of the Stark children. I think a fire priestess will give him the kiss of fire, making him alive in a Beric Dondarrion fashion. So yeah I believe Jon Snow will be back. I also think Tyrion Lannister is half Targaryen, and indeed not Tywin’s biological son. But that’s just me.
I really don’t know what my expectations for the upcoming season are. I could be very wrong about all my theories too. And to be honest, I’d be pleasantly surprised if I were.
Last season left off with Sansa disappearing from Winterfell and Ramsay Bolton (the bastard of Bolton), with Theon Greyjoy. Dany disappeared into the Dothraki grasslands with Drogon. And Queen Cersei did the walk of shame through King’s Landing for all her sins. Man, and they cut her hair. Her hair was her thing, you had to admit. And good ol’ Tyrion has joined the Khaleesi’s ranks.
Speaking of Cersei, Lena Headey is going to be at Motorcity Comic Con in May. So I’ll be getting her autograph because let’s face it, this year she is the only person worth seeing at Comic Con. Years back my roomie, Jennifer, and myself met Jason Momoa there. Heather got a hug and an autograph…because that’s how Heather rolls. Wish I were as much of a pimp as her.
