Grey Worm Lives!

Finale Greyworm

Meg Shields and I predicted the Unsullied commander’s demise practically every week—and, to be fair, all signs pointed to him not living to see retirement. But he has, even though pretty much all of his reasons for living (Missandei, Daenerys and her cause) are now dead. So, it’s not exactly happy days, but still, Grey Worm gets to go to Naath and take a well-deserved vacation.

Sit Down, Edmure

Finale Sit Edmure

Considering all the loose ends Game of Thrones left untied, bringing Edmure Tully back one last time to have a rather lengthy joke at his expense seems a strange thing to prioritize (e.g., what’s happening with Gilly if Sam is a Maester? After everything, Gendry and Arya share a scene but don’t even make eye contact? Brienne swore to protect Sansa, but now she’s… staying in King’s Landing, a whole kingdom away? Etc., etc., etc.). Still, that’s the choice David Benioff and D. B. Weiss made and considered independently it’s a pleasantly entertaining scene. Edmure Tully’s defining trait is that he is basically a waste of space and having him make a final appearance so that he can be told to sit down (and shut up) by his niece Sansa Stark—while arguably more screentime than he deserves—is undeniably in character.

Robin Arryn is Hot Now

Finale Robin Arryn

Neville Longbottom has been out-Neville Longbottom-ed by none other than Robin Arryn, the only character on Game of Thrones who has more disturbing breast milk stories to share than Tormund Giantsbane. Yeah, that was one twist I really did not see coming. Nor did the rest of the internet, based off the number of reaction posts that have started circulating since the finale premiered. Notably, though, Robin has basically no lines, so it’s unclear whether his physical transformation was accompanied by a similar development personality-wise or if he’s still an annoying skidmark of a human being. A mystery for the ages.
