JON AND SANSA REUNITED! SOMETHING GOOD HAPPENED TO SANSA! SHE IS BACK WITH A MEMBER OF HER FAMILY AND IS READY TO TAKE BACK WINTERFELL! (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
Seriously, I don't even care about this show anymore (the books are much better in more ways than one, imho), but this? This is something that I think was such a huge emotionally satisfying moment for everyone. We constantly have the Starks separated from each other, always missing each other when they're at the right place and the wrong time, going through horrible things alone. And now we have two of them finally reunited. This hasn't even happened in the books yet, and here we have two of them together again, and about to fuck shit up and take back Winterfell. And what makes this even better is that Jon and Sansa haven't even shared a scene with each other on the show, this is basically the first time we see them actually interacting, from their long emotional embrace to them reminiscing and laughing briefly about the past -- and it was glorious. The show has made countless dumb decisions, but this wasn't one of them. This was probably the best thing the show has given us in, like, literally seasons, it was something we were all needing and wanting. It was sweet and beautiful, and I didn't want it to stop.
Also? I am SO HERE AND READY for Sansa taking control. After everything she has been through (and what the show unnecessarily put her through, especially last season), seeing her be in charge and convince Jon to basically take back their home was amazing.
I HAVE BEEN EMOTIONALLY COMPROMISED I DON'T UNDERSTAND I DON'T EVEN CARE ABOUT WHAT DUMB THINGS D&D ARE DOING ANYMORE BUT THIS IS TOO MUCH FOR ME TO HANDLE. JON AND SANSA. SANSA AND JON. I DON'T PLAN ON GETTING BACK INTO THIS SHOW BECAUSE FUCK THIS SHOW BUT ALSO PLEASE DON'T FUCK THIS UP, I WANT THEM TO STAY TOGETHER THROUGH THIS BECAUSE THEY'VE BEEN THROUGH ENOUGH HELL ALREADY, GDI. RAISE STARK HELL, BBYS, TAKE BACK YOUR HOME AND REUNITE THE REST OF YOUR FAMILY.
We also have Daenerys with the Dothraki again and wrecking shit up, as per usual. I know that GRRM has mentioned that the Targaryens aren't impervious to fire and what happened with Dany initially was a one time unique thing (due to the red comet) in hatching her dragons and thus bringing magic back into the world, and I think she had been burned in the books after the fact. But honestly, I'm not even mad? I mean, the show hasn't been following the books for some time now (ex: excluding the majority of the fantastical lore and mythology of the world, including the prophecies and visions and the like which drive the characters) and have been neglecting a lot of the rules, never mind that it's basically been fanfiction at this point anyway. That being said, however, I'm still here for Dany fucking shit up and dismantling the patriarchy.
Jon and Sansa are possibly going to raise an army to defeat Ramsay Bolton and take back Winterfell. Daenerys is going to be the leader of the Dothraki.
Who knew it would take this to get me hyped for a show I'm no longer interested in? Plus, I'm so thankful that individual scenes get immediately uploaded onto YouTube so I can just watch the parts relevant to my interests instead of suffering through everything else.
