NOTE: DO NOT READ if you have not watched the Season 6 finale! Spoilers ahead.
Yesterday morning I woke up to a WhatsApp message from my best friend. It went like this:
“Game of Thrones finale.
I NEED TO DISCUSS GOT!
So many questions!”
The Season 6 finale for Game Of Thrones managed to tie up some loose ends, but ultimately, it left us with more questions than answers. If you haven’t seen the episode yet, DO NOT READ AHEAD, because… spoilers. If you have, join us in being disturbed.
1. How did Arya learn to face change so well? She doesn’t exactly have a lot of experience considering she wasn’t given the chance to try it while training under Jaqen. Also where did she get that face from? Did she kill somebody? (Well, possibly seeing how adept she is at killing now.)
2. Why did they need to kill Grand Maester Pycelle separately? (And with psycho kids)
3. Speaking of psycho kids, how did they run from the wildfire so quickly? Especially that one kid who stabbed Lancel. Plus they were below ground where the wildfire was! Also, did you see HOW FAST that wildfire spread?!
4. Why must Tommen remove his crown before jumping?
5. How did the wooden carving of a stag withstand the pyre?
Cue the tears.
6. What did the mountain do to that shame woman? What was she screaming about? He was just… standing there. Also, how did they capture her? Those crazy fanatics seem so elusive.
7. Isn’t Bran going to die without that horse Uncle Benjen just took off on?

8. What on earth did Lyanna whisper to young Ned Stark? There have been several speculations by lip readers and those who strained their ears to hear the hushed whispers – finally confirming the highly speculated R+L=J theory.
“Promise me, Ned.”
9. So does Jon Snow want the job as “King in the North” or not? I can’t tell from his face.
10. How did Varys get from Dorne to that ship so quickly? Is he a magician?
11. Finally, where was the Night’s King this whole episode?
Anyway, Lady Olenna for president!
