“When you play the Game Of Thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle ground. – Cersei Lannister”
The sixth season was undoubtedly the season of Starks, as finally whatever/whoever is left of them are fine, there is a finally a Stark at Winterfell, the winter is finally coming and the women at most likely prepared for it more than the men. Sure Jon Snow‘s revelation was big news,(biggest fine) and he’s now The King in the North, but he too owes it to one woman and two girls(what? The Red Woman, Sansa and Lady Mormont!).The finale witnessed the women finally getting it together after 5 seasons of violence, rape, slavery, and brutality.
There is now a woman on the Iron Throne at King’s Landing, a woman ruling Drone, a woman sitting at the Tyrell‘s throne, a woman sailing to get the Iron Throne back and a woman with the help of another set to take her rightful place back at the Iron Islands. But they didn’t have it easy from the start, and this blog post is about 17 times, even though their toughest times, these feisty women showed unbeatable courage, and you sure had goosebumps, and probably jumped from the couch. Here it goes(as to what I think):
1.Hands down when the Khaleesi walks into Khal Drogo’s funeral pyre…
and emerges as the Mother of Dragons with three baby dragons, UNBURNT!
2.“(if)You are not going to serve. You are going to die“!
Yes, I have already obsessed over it, here!
3. “A girl is Arya Stark of Winterfell and I’m going home!”
(BOOM)You could literally hear fireworks in the background, it gives you the chills and makes your hair stand out. Like, finally!
Judge her not by her size, what she’s capable of might shock and surprise you, and if you have wronged her or her family, pray she does not have Needle.
4. ‘I am Sansa Stark of Winterfell, this is my home and you can’t frighten me“!
Whatever happens later is another thing, but you have to give it to a girl who has just suffered so much – both parents murdered brutally, a brother betrayed and murdered, two brothers burnt alive, a sister lost, herself tortured and tormented by her fiancee, married to a dwarf, ran away with a stranger, witnessed the murder of an aunt(felt happy bout it) and about to get married in a family that’s responsible for the death of her brother and mother- and she’s still not scared.
5. “You are going to die tomorrow, Lord Bolton. Sleep well.
And boy oh boy she was not kidding! Just when you thought Jon Snow won’t make it, she returns to the battlefield with the knights of the Vale, and just when you thought it’s the most satisfying expression on her face, she takes control again. You cannot miss the smirk on her face!
And this by far was the most satisfying revenge ever!
6. “Power is Power!”
Know it, believe it, remember it, because Cersei Lannister won’t repeat it again.
7. “If you ever call me sister again, I’ll have you strangled in your sleep.”
Well she sure burnt her alive (along with her brother nd father and her new found faith in High Sparrow), enjoying the view with a glass of wine- but what can one say, she was warned.
8. “In the name of Renly of House Baratheon…… I Brienne of Tarth sentence you to die!”
Sure it took her Four full seasons and laughed at by people about it, but she did what two major houses and a Bolton couldn’t do, she kept her oath, slayed Stannis!
9. “I don’t want to be a queen. I want to be the queen!“
She explains to the Littlefinger, that she is in no way messing around.
10. “You know nothing, Jon Snow!”
Being told by the man she loves, that he loves her too;she shoots three sharp arrows at him in return, but none to his heart. She’s the best marksman there is, so if she really wanted him dead, he would be. It sure takes a special gal to pull it off.
11. When Cat seizes Tyrion Lannister.
That is one mother who loves her children fiercely and someone’s dared to piss her off.
12. When Yara Grejoy sailed to Winterfell to rescue her little brother…
She showed everyone that Ramsay‘s forces are penetrable, and there is nothing that an iron-born axe can’t get. But little did she know also that Theon Grejoy is now Reek.
13. When they just introduced Sand Snakes…
The daughters of Ellaria Sand are remarkable fighters and their badassery is visible from the first introduction itself. These girls would go to any lengths, to avenge their father Oberyn Martell and aunt Elia Martell– then be it killing their uncle or cousin.
14. Olenna Tyrell giving a showdown to Cersei.
Cersei did end up burning all her enemies at once, but this showdown must have burnt her deep.
15. When Daenerys and Yara, decide to change the world…
Dany’s dialogue has laid out a vision of a better world, but the alliance between the Iron Islands and the Targaryens envisions a new world order—one with women in charge.
She shamed an entire roomful of lords for not doing what was right. She has plenty of time to deliver a withering monologue and be in bed for her 8 p.m. bedtime.
17. When Daenerys is FINALLY FINALLY sailing to Westeros.
It’s game on people! (will take 10 more months to it, but sure)
