*MAJOR Game Of Thrones SPOILERS (BELOW)*
Okay folks, get your tissue boxes ready!
On Sunday, the HBO show hit fans with ALL THE FEELS after they killed off a handful of beloved characters and issued a heart-wrenching origin story. Classic!
On top of all of that, the episode titled The Door gave us an update on Daenerys Targaryen’s progression back to Mereen, a revenge fueled Sansa Stark, and some Greyjoy family drama. AH-Mazing!
We know, it’s a lot — but then again it wouldn’t be GOT if we weren’t constantly on the verge of tears. LOLz!
Be sure to ch-ch-check out the highlights from Sunday’s episode to see if your favorite character survived all of the drama (below)!
1. Sansa Stark is DONE being a pawn
In last week’s episode we witnessed Sansa’s emotional reunion with her half brother Jon Snow. While the recently brought back to life Stark bastard seemed hesitant to go to war, his redheaded sister seemed more than ready to fight in order to take back Winterfell. Miz Stark further proved that she was done being used by men (e.g. being mentally and physically tormented by both Joffrey Baratheon and Ramsay Bolton) when she met up with her former mentor Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish and ripped him a new one for marrying her off to Joffrey 2.0. *slow claps*
Although, Littlefinger did serve Sansa a peace offering by giving her the tidbit that her uncle in Riverrun had acquired a small army. Well that’s convenient! Did anyone else get a tear in their eye when Sansa made Jon a Ned Stark-esque cloak?
2. Forget Stannis Baratheon, Daenerys Targaryen is the chosen one
Across the sea, the Queen of a thousand titles proved she’s back in command as she made her way back to Mereen. After learning about Jorah Mormont’s illness, Daenerys commanded him to find a cure and to come back to her inner circle when he has done so. Aww!
Meanwhile, Tyrion Lannister continued to try and maintain the peace in Miz Targaryen’s kingdom by calling on a Melisandre wannabe to help create some religious fervor in the realm about their Queen. This new red priestess seems less trustworthy than Meli — and we didn’t think that was possible!
3. The Greyjoys fight amongst themselves for the Salt Throne
After the death of their father, the Greyjoy siblings attempt to get lock in Yara as heir to throne. After Theon’s passionate speech about why his sister is the clear choice to rule the Iron Islands, the twosome’s uncle Euron crashes in and ruined it all by A) admitting to killing his brother and B) by promising to propose to Daenerys Targaryen so that she may use their EPIC fleet to conquer Westeros and help bring their nation back to glory. Ya know, it’s not the worst plan we’ve ever heard. While their uncle is busy getting crowned king in a drowning ceremony, the Greyjoy kiddos fled the scene with the Iron Islands’ best ships. Well played!
4. HOLD. THE. DOOR.
Bran really needs to stop snooping around where he doesn’t belong. Why, you may ask?
Well, during one of his psychic field trips, Bran got too close to the Night King which allowed the head white walker and his army of zombies to descend upon the underground lair of the Three-Eyed Raven. FUN FACT: We also learned that the White Walkers were created by the Children of the Forest in order to be a weapon against mankind. That totally backfired, didn’t it??
Anywho, we digress. While the compound was being attacked by the walking dead of Westeros, Bran was trapped in a flashback and was forced to project his consciousness into Hodor. This move caused a young Hodor to have a seizure like episode and to repeat the three words he kept hearing in Bran’s present, “Hold the door” or Hodor. We honestly could not hold back our tears as Hodor carried Bran to safety and sacrificed his life by throwing his body against the door so that the young Stark could escape. Also, did we mention that Summer the direwolf got eaten by some undead? Yeah, we’re pretty pissed.
