You Know Nothing….
Here’s a little humor and a tv show review to follow up my last post about promises….
Game of Thrones is one of my favorite tv shows and the new season starts this weekend. There were so many cliffhangers. I can’t wait to see who lived and who died. Nine months is a long time between seasons when so many lives hang in the balance.
**Warning…If you’re a fan, but not current on the last season, you may want to skip this post. I don’t want to ruin it for you!
The biggest question most fans have? Is Jon Snow dead? I hope not! As we’ve learned from season one, no one is safe. Not even the main characters.
What does this have to do with my last post and promises? It’s just a tv show. The Lannisters may always pay their debts, but the Starks always keep their word.
Well, they usually keep their word, except for that one time Rob Stark went back on his word to marry Walder Frey’s daughter and married Talisa instead. We all know how that turned out….The Red Wedding! Don’t “ghost” Frey’s daughter because he will seek revenge!
The Starks were honorable. Ned was loyal to his family and friends and didn’t shrink away from personal responsibilities. Remember this from the first episode….
“The man who passes the sentence should swing the sword”.
He may have passed Jon Snow off as his illegitimate son to his family, BUT common theory is, he made a promise to his sister to raise Jon as his own and he kept it a secret from everyone….including his wife. I can’t wait to find out why, however I think I have it figured out.
As I said previously, I always keep my word and come hell or high water, I’ll honor it! Thank goodness I don’t live in Westeros…you can lose your head there for keeping a promise!
Is Jon Snow dead? Is Arya alive? Will she be blind if she is? What about Sansa and Reek? Did they escape? Has The Mountain been reanimated? Will Cersei get her revenge? We’ll soon find out the answers to these questions and many more!
As a side note….I always thought I’d like to belong to House Stark. They’re good people, but then again, it wouldn’t be so bad to be a Targayen. Pet dragon! Need I say more! And I hope I’m not giving anything away here, but I think my favorite character may belong to both houses!
