SPOILERS ARE COMING
Any Game of Thrones fan knows the season finales typically are a time to take pause and reflect as you recover from that crazy, traumatic rollercoaster of emotions you were thrown on in episode 9.
Feast your eyes on the promo for the final episode of Season Six. Post continues after video…
Last week’s Battle of the Bastards was INTENSE, giving even the Red Wedding a run for its money.
So as we emerge from that stressful state, we are left with a bundle of questions we want, nay, NEED, answered before Westeros disappears from our screens for another year.
1. Who’s going to rule Winterfell?
With the Starks back in Winterfell, Bran is actually next in line to rule the North, but everyone thinks he’s dead while he’s off learning to become a raven. So it falls to either Sansa or Jon, i.e. a girl or a bastard – not exactly the Westeros way. We reckon Sansa is best placed to claim the top job, considering she is the true-born child of Ned Stark. Plus, Jon’s a nice guy and would encourage it, right?
2. What’s the deal with Littlefinger?
Watching the knights of the Vale storm in and steamroll Bolton’s army was fiercely satisfying. We all had a feeling that Littlefinger and his smirk would come help the Starks at the last minute, and thank goodness he did. But how exactly is Littlefinger going to benefit from this? The guy isn’t known for doing things simply out of the kindness of his heart. So, what’s in it for him? What deal did he and Sansa make for the Vale knights to save the day? What power will he hold over her, if any? And how will Jon Snow feel about the request for aid his sister made behind his back?
