Welcome to the review of Game of Thrones Season 5 Finale, The Mother’s Mercy .
Warning : Major spoilers below !!
This Episode contains some purgative deaths such as Sir Meryn stabbed by Arya Stark, Ramsay Bolton’s girlfriend pushed down the castle by Theon/Reek in attempt to save Sansa Stark and Brienne finally being able to avenge the death of Renly Baratheon by killing Stannis . Some were provisional like Theon/Reek and Sansa seemed to agree silently on a suicidal pact and at least one heartbreaking death that of Jon Snow .
This episode starts with Stannis preparing his army to march towards Winterfell, who in last week’s episode burned her daughter alive. This week, the last true Baratheon’s zealous adherence to the Lord of Light’s instructions lost him his wife Selyse , his army, and eventually his head.
The next scene showed Arya Stark at a brothel in Braavos, where she stabbed Sir Meryn to death . This went down badly with the many-faced god, who saw fit to set her blind as punishment.
Tyrion/Daenarys dream team let us down, thanks to her ‘Drogon’. She is left somewhere East of the narrow sea , likely to be a prisoner of a Dotharaki tribe. Meanwhile at Mereen, Tyrion is to be the king while Sir Jorah and Daario Naharis, the sellsword decides to go searching for Daenarys towards north.
Cersei seeks for forgiveness in front of the high sparrow, and makes her walk of atonement : naked stroll through the rough crowd of king’s landing . In the Next Season we would love to see the reborn Mountain to kick some high sparrow butt . Meanwhile Cersei’s brother Jaime was eventually unable to save his daughter Myrcella who was poisoned by Ellaria Sand .
And finally we return to the wall ! Jon Snow agrees to send Samwell Tarly to the citadel with Gilly and her baby, to get his Maester’s degree officially losing his last ally . The brothers in night’s watch with the help of Olly, trick Jon Snow into the yard where every one took turns stabbing him underneath the sign that said traitor. And the last thing we saw before the credits rolled in : Jon Snow staring unblinking to the sky as his blood runs black against the snow.
Did Game of thrones just kills his hero again? Don’t forget Melisandre has just arrived at Castle Black, and has a background in resurrection. On the other hand Kit Harington has already confirmed the interviewers that as far as he’s concerned , he and Jon Snow are done with the show. A Bluff ? Perhaps . We’ll have to wait until next season to find out.
