Well, dedicated Throners, thanks for sticking with me through this epic Game of Thrones finale.
I now need to try to process all of that and assemble it into something resembling the final Raven On recap for 2014.
Keep your eyes out for it later tonight (I'm not allowed to go home until it's done; seriously, I'm chained to my desk like one of Dany's dragons!).
And to think, we have to wait another ten months now until Season 5... I can't quite believe it.
Here are some more random tweets from the #GameofThrones hashtag about the mourning period now beginning:
Waiting one week for the next episode was hard enough, waiting a whole year for the next series is near enough impossible #gameofthrones— Katey Gore (@KateyGore) June 16, 2014
Now that #GameOfThrones is off for the remainder of the year I don't really have much motivation to get out of bed every morning.— Matt Sullivan (@_ancientvvisdom) June 16, 2014
Don't tell me that I have to wait 10 months for the next season of #GameOfThrones You're torturing me!— Susanna Reynolds (@itsmeSusanna) June 16, 2014
Holy moly, is anyone else's head spinning?
So, by my reckoning, that was a super high death count: Jojen, the Hound, Shae and Tywin.
Oh my goodness, I can't really form proper words with my mouth, let alone type them.
Let's take a look at some tweets.
Once again today, I learn that there are no heroes or villains in #GameOfThrones. Just people who aren't dead yet.— Karishma (@karishmau) June 16, 2014
FINALLY! That coin Arya got from Jaquen Hagar back in season 2 has finally come in handy!
The captain is from Braavos and he totes Valar Doeharis' her Valar Morghulis.
And ....Arya is away. Leaving Westeros, bound for Braavos to become a FACELESS MAN AND KICK EVERYONE'S BUTT.
That's gorgeous finale music too.
Back with Arya now, and she's at a port. White Harbor, maybe? Or somewhere near the Eyrie? Somebody pass me a map...
She asks the captain to go north but he isn't heading that way.Back to top
WHERE ARE THEY GOING? They're on a boat... where is Varys taking Tyrion?
Now Varys is here to get Tyrion, what the hell is going on...
OH MY GOD HE JUST SHOT HIM AGAIN
OMG OMG TYWIN'S DEAD HOLY CRAP
OH HOLY CRAP HE JUST SHOT HIS DAD
HOLY S--- CHARLES DANCE ON THE DUNNYBack to top
Oh this is awful, not Shae, I mean I know she betrayed him, but they loved each other.
Tyrion's got the crossbow, what's he doing?
Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no!
Nooooo Tyrion.... oh god...
Wait, what? Tyrion's not going. He's gone to the Tower of the Hand. He must know those secret passages.
And Jaime's come to rescue him - this does NOT excuse the Cersei stuff though, Kingslayer.
Awww, look they're hugging before Tyrion makes an escape.
"Thank you for my life," says the little lion.Back to top
What IS she thinking?
He's begging her to kill him - she's gone and nicked his money, which he nicked off the farmer a while back - and she's just walking off!
"Kill me! Kill me! Kill me!" comes the plaintative cry.
Oh wow. The Hound wants Arya to put him down, put him out of his misery.
She's just watching.
He's taunting her, and she's just watching.
Oh, little Maisie Williams, what a performance. How cold. And the Hound is begging now.
Oh wow. Arya's gone to the Hound. Is she going to finish him off?
"Killed by a woman," says the Hound. THAT'S RIGHT DUDE.
Oh he's telling her to go after Brienne. That's good advice.
But Arya says she'll last on her own - longer than the Hound, anyway.
No, Arya, don't hide! Go with Brienne, she's awesome! Your Mum liked her!
OMG. Brienne just went nuts.
AND THE HOUND IS OFF THE CLIFF!Back to top
