Liquid Arts & Entertainment, our friend TJ Keyton of Michigan State University, and singer John Popper of band Blues Traveler would like to share our impression of the season 7 finale of HBO television series ‘Game of Thrones’.
We all enjoyed the finale, which was really well done. We especially applaud the cliffhanger of Night King atop his zombie dragon and his undead army advancing toward the Seven Kingdoms.
TJ watched the episode before we did. The MSU tech whiz told us it felt as though he’d watched a feature film. “I told you, bro, mini movie,” he said. We felt that too.
John said there’s very little to do to unwind after a show when he’s on the road besides drink booze and watch ‘Game of Thrones’. And the finale basically wound him up. He said, “Oh my God, it was crazy! Jon Snow screwed his aunt!”
Bran Stark revealed that Snow was born a Targaryen, the son of secretly wed Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen. And just as TJ predicted in one of our pre-finale conversations, Snow would ignorantly have sweaty relations with Daenerys Targaryen. “Your boy was right,” TJ boasted.
We both predicted a major character would meet their demise. This turned out to be the manipulative Littlefinger. Found guilty of treason by Sansa, he was executed by the creepy Arya. We thought Littlefinger’s story arc played out excellently. TJ said, “Littlefinger got played, son! At his own game!”
John was left wondering what game Tyrion Lannister (our favorite character on the show) might be playing. As Snow and Daenerys were getting it on, Tyrion, looking every bit of sinister, was lingering in the dimly lit hall outside the room. “He knew trouble was coming,” John said. “When somebody has sex with somebody else on that show, somebody’s going to die. The key to ‘Game of Thrones’ is keep it in your pants.”
TJ said, “I think Tyrion is just worried about their alliance and the possible repercussions of their relationship. Nothing sinister there, I don’t think.”
Earlier in the episode Tyrion met privately with his sister, Queen Cersei, who he assumed would kill him. She didn’t. We also won’t learn the details of their conversation, or Tyrion’s true agenda, until the 8th and final season in 2019. We think Tyrion will make a play for the throne. “That’s who I would like to be on the thrown,” John agreed, “but I don’t think the world works that way. You need somebody heroic up there.”
Yeah, but heroes don’t fare so well on Game of Thrones.
“That’s true,” John said as he laughed. “Heroes go down in flames, you’re right!” |
