Season six of “Game of Thrones” may be over, but the conversation is still very much raging.
We’re going over every character death in extreme detail, theorizing about Jon Snow as the rightful heir to the Iron Throne and definitely talking about the season’s final episode, “The Winds of Winter.”
Sunday’s season six finale was arguably the greatest hour and change in television history. There, I said it. As one of my colleagues put it, this was more like a movie than the final show in a series.
The showrunners did an unbelievable job not only tying things together, but laying the foundations for the seventh season of “Game of Thrones.”
The Mad Queen is currently sitting on the Iron Throne, Daenerys Targaryen is finally coming for the Iron Throne and Jon Snow clearly belongs on the Iron Throne. Does it get any better than this?
A major theme of season six was undoubtedly the power of women. So many key females on “Game of Thrones” took control of their own destinies, which was refreshing to see considering how much flack the HBO show took for scenes like Sansa’s rape at the hands of Ramsay Bolton.

Oh, and we can’t forget Lady Olenna, of course.

In addition to all of the above-pictured women taking control, there’s another thing they all shared in the season six finale: They were all wearing black.
Now, it’s not entirely clear as to why all the essential female characters wore black in the finale, but I think it’s fair to say this was a very powerful symbol of strength, mourning and anonymity.
Cersei Lannister wore a black outfit you’re more likely to see at an Oakland Raiders game than the throne room at King’s Landing, but hell if it wasn’t one of the most epic outfits we’ve seen on “Game of Thrones.”
