It’s been a few weeks since the season six finale of “Game of Thrones,” “The Winds of Winter,” aired, so I figured now was a good time to dive back into the episode and try and make sense of everything we saw and what we’re about to see in the show’s final two seasons.
Luckily, it appears YouTube user Alt Shift X has already done that — but first, let’s take a look at some of the major plot lines before diving into the details.
For starters, we know Jon Snow is now the King in the North and the son of Lyanna Stark and Raegar Targaryen. What this means for his presumable future interaction with Daenerys Targaryen remains to be seen.
Speaking of Daenerys Targaryen, we know the Mother of Dragons is currently sailing towards Westeros with a massive fleet. She plans to take the Iron Throne from the Mad Queen, Cersei Lannister, who, after destroying hundreds with wildfire and having her last remaining son commit suicide, is now ruling in King’s Landing.
We know winter is finally here, and we know the Night King and the White Walkers are coming with it.
We’re looking forward to the battle for the Iron Throne and the battle between the living and the undead, all of which will have to play out over the course of just 13 episodes. And you thought the “Battle of the Bastards” was awesome.
So, let’s get into Alt Shift X’s superb explanation of all the things you missed in the “Game of Thrones” finalebecause there were definitely more details and implications than you realize.
