Game of Thrones Season 7 Predictions

Welp, Game of Thrones season 7 is going to premier in just about a month, so it’s time for predictions!

Yey!

We’re not actually excited. Erm read all the spoilers so it’s just Three predicting things this year and she doesn’t even remember what happened last season. We’re a little Game of Thrones fatigued. The main problem is that as much as it’s praised for being edgy and expectations-defying, the very fact that so many good characters die horribly and that so many opportunities for justice are completely squandered makes it kind of exhausting to be as emotionally invested as the two of us used to be. It was Justina Ireland who once wrote a whole tweet thread about the importance of not leaving your audience without the emotional satisfaction they’re coming to you for, specifically in reference to GRR Martin, and it seems about right. There’s just not enough of an emotional payoff for remembering all of these characters’ stupid names and stupid backstories, thus far in the series, at least. And this is going to be the penultimate season.

Also it doesn’t help that while the show runners are actually finishing the story up, unlike Martin, they’re not really doing a great job with it. There’re only two direwolves left. Weren’t direwolves supposed to be a big deal, at least symbolically? And they keep writing rape scenes and scenes making fun of men who have had genital mutilation done to them. It’s like, stop that. You could just not, you know.

Anyway. Last time we predicted things we got EVERYTHING RIGHT, especially the part where Mormont’s Raven is running the whole show secretly. So read these at your own risk. But erm, who has read the spoilers, knows better than to include any hints any which way about them here.
