After the ending of season 5, the readers were left with utmost anticipations, so many what’s and why’s, and as the wait has been over, it’s time to give answers to all those stored up questions like which is obviously on everyone’s mind,WHAT IS GOING ON WITH JON SNOW, IS HE REALLY DEAD OR IS IT SOME NIGHTMARE?, and let’s see how much Game of thrones season 6 has live up to our expectations. Game of thrones season 6 with the releasing of each episode, we are always left with an anxiety over what is to come next now? It has failed our guessing power into an ice. Each episode is trying to be on top from the rest including as many twists and turns it can take, making us wonder how the story is going to wrap up to an end.
Game of thrones season 6, the biggest hit till now, and still has been bagging the top most position among top series and youth’s heart too. It’s almost running at the mid of the season 6 but I will begin from the very first episode while you go into flashbacks. With the release of game of thrones season 6 lots of spoilers were spewed out, and I wouldn’t be wrong if I will say that mostly fans were disappointed with the very first episode of season 6, not many catchy elements were there, story didn’t move to significant position, there were only minor elements which made it stand out, like Melisandre’s real disguised feature, the old rugged hanging structure behind that attractive one. The death of Jon was already in news, before season released, but the question wasn’t about if he is really dead or not, but whether if he is making a comeback that’s always triggering their thoughts plus it also adds the fact, when we already knew that Jon is going to revive then what was the point of dragging it further? Spoilers had done their function too, but the most of the time story covered the Wall part. Also the reactions evoked when we get to see, Jon was killed by his own men.
You would not disagree at this point if I say, season 6 is for women’s empowerment, the way each and every women have played their character, have usurped male’s position in series, people have embraced the female’s power from its core, Brienne, who saving the lives of Sansa and Theon from the sycophants of Ramsay, and who finally won trust of Sansa after so much of struggle is worth appreciating, the way she sworn her oath to her was so captivating for all that time it made us continue watching it, along with this the whole Brienne is to appreciate because she has that particular capability which even most renowned prince lack in the story. And also how Sansa shows the spirit of fight by making nostalgic about her dead mother, which also makes us feel for the very first time we saw our eyes shining through Sansa fighting spirit. Then we have the killing of Trystane and Dorne by their own kins, and it feels like showing off the score for once if we compare it with the sexual gratifications showed in the past series.
Erstwhile we always hated Melisandre being always wicked, and using her hot naked body for her own benefit, it always made people rage against her, but it turned out opposite when this season shattered our vision completely and making us feel pity and excruciating pain for her real Melisandre, and also she did something at last good for everyone by reviving Jon snow, but there will be always a touch of warm feeling within us for her, the way she looks at her by taking her gaze down towards her naked old and crone body, and the way she meekly hides herself in the blanket, telling us how she has been struggling all the way with this truth, and moreover what it is to be a woman being wise and divided all the time in region like Westeros itself.
This season also showed us the rising level of malignant character, Ramsay Bolton, and how nevertheless winning all over, that makes us wonder in a bad way. He delivers his dialogues with such confidence that it draws us into delusion arising who is the real Ramsay, the way he removed his threat of being disowned by his father, by killing his father itself brought chills to us. For once we believed that he actually felt for Myranda, through the way he reacted to her death, but the conclusion was drawn when he said, her body is a good meat for dogs, boom for those who believed for one second that Ramsay could be changed, he is lot worse than this, we have come to hate him even more than Jeoffery and I can only see the satisfaction will be his death because he has done more than enough. The freeing of Reek to Theon was also heart rending scene, it evoked so many emotions into us, Theon finally acted more like human rather than timid reek and it made us finally appreciating for what he is.
Lot of people see their favorites dying by and by, and we can only sit in daze as the things one by one show themselves. I obviously don’t expect each and every one to die in the end and see those white walkers flourishing, they have already snatched our heart by killing Hodor, well Hodor reminds me something very crucial and controversial part of this article, when people saw Hodor being killed by white walkers, they blamed Bran for this, but for this I have to say Bran is not to blame, Bran couldn’t save his father Ned, couldn’t save Hodor, he just warged into him, using his strength for doing something good, he didn’t change anything, in fact he enlightened us with some unknown things which we wouldn’t have been able to know if he couldn’t have travelled through the time. I just hope our favorites win in the end, this is the time to choose your wisest hero or heroine, as it has been anticipated that Jon and Daenerys will unite but I see her turning into some tyrannical creature taking ruthless decisions in the thirst of taking revenge. The creation of white walkers has also led us to tremendous shock, when we got to know that their origin also lies in humankind. Arya Stark like always has impressed us with her skills, and now we can see those skills being sharpen over by being taught training in fighting, who else is hoping to see her return to Westeros now? In the end I will say tight your seatbelt and don’t stake your heart on your favorite character, because you never know when you will see their farewell, that’s all about Game of Thrones, there will be only one king or queen.
