I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am going through some serious Game of Thrones withdrawal. And it’s just going to get worse as the year progresses because there will be NO GAME OF THRONES UNTIL NEXT YEAR!! My god, what were they thinking over at HBO?? Did they realize what we would go through? That not seeing the King in the North, Khaleesi and the treacherous Lannisters feels wrong? Sure, we have HBO GO and On Demand to watch previous seasons. I can tell you with no shame that I have watched “Battle of the Bastards” so many times I know the words. Sidebar: if anyone from HBO reads this, for the love of the Seven, put “Battle of the Bastards” on the big screen!!!!! Because the absence of Westeros is palpable.
I mean, I think I could forgive this decision if I had the next book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series in my hands. It would be AMAZING if George R.R. Martin could finish the next book. But since he’s had us waiting so long that the show has actually surpassed the books, I’m not feeling too hopeful that we’ll get anything from him this year. I pray to the Old Gods and the New that Martin proves me wrong.
Until then, I’ll just watch “Battle of the Bastards.” Again.
