24 things that STILL need to be addressed before this "Game of Thrones" season is over
There are only two episodes left of Season 6 of Game of Thrones.
Scratch that. There’s only ONE episode left of Game of Thrones. This Sunday’s episode, “The Battle of the Bastards” is going to be one long hour of Bastards battling it out. Doubtful we’ll get any other action from anywhere else in Westeros.
That means that there are only 67 minutes left of this season. That’s it.
There are still A LOT OF THINGS that need to be addressed before this season wraps up. There’s no way Game of Thrones can get through them all, so start bracing yourself for a lot of unanswered questions that will linger in the air like Jon Snow’s maybe death until Season 7.
1. The Tower of Joy
Once upon a time in Westeros, we were teased (a few times) with a scene at the Tower of Joy. Supposedly, it’s a scene about Jon Snow’s birth! But this is still unconfirmed, seeing as how we keep NOT GOING BACK TO THE TOWER OF JOY.
2. Bran now being the Three Eyed Raven
Imagine being Bran one day, and then the next day you are the Three Eyed Raven! And basically the entire weight of the world (and it’s issues) is on your shoulders! How do you cope with that? Love to know!
Imagine being a character we haven’t seen since Season 1, Episode 3 and returning back for .5 seconds just to tell Bran “you are the Three Eyed Raven now, and also you have to go back to where you came from! And also the Night King is after you!” Please don’t tell me that Benjen was brought back for literally those .5 seconds, to basically tell Bran he’s majorly f’ed, and now he’s going to disappear for another 5 seasons.
4. Sam and Gilly
First off, let’s talk about the fact that Sam has NO IDEA Jon Snow died, and then came back to life. Second, where the heck are Sam, Gilly, and little baby Sam going? Are we invited along…or nah?
5. Yara and Theon
Have ships, will travel.
6. That uncle of Yara and Theon, whatever his name is, I’ve decided to stop trying to remember everyone’s name
Building ships, hoping to travel, really hoping to just marry Dany, like yeah sure, anyone can just waltz into Meereen and be like, “You are my new bride!” Dany is like, 100% not going to go for that, sir.
7. The Hound
Yeah, fine, go ahead and bring back an assumed-dead character, only to have him go in the COMPLETELY opposite direction of what we were all hoping his character would go. Get hype? Nope, more like RIP CleganeBowl.
8. Have we talked about the Tower of Joy yet?
Okay, quick Tower of Joy backstory: it’s supposedly where Jon Snow was born. But you know this already. We’d all love to truly know this, if only that whole scene would play out on the screen in front of us.
9. The Brotherhood Without Banners (+ The Hound)
So…these guys don’t have Lady Stoneheart? Can we double check?
10. That “~rumor~” in King’s Landing…?
🎶Have you heard, there’s a rumor in King’s Landing, have you hear, what they’re saying on the streets?🎶
WE HAVEN’T HEARD. WE DO NOT KNOW.
11. The Wildfire in King’s Landing
Wildfire has come up a lot recently. We saw it destroy a bunch of stuff in Bran’s vision. Should we be worried about it spreading uncontrollably through the streets?
12. Margaery’s ~secret~ conversion to the Faith of the Seven
Oh, so Margaery can just convert, and get Tommen to convert, and then have him outlaw all trials by combat, and we’re just supposed to do NOTHING about it?
13. Dany and Meereen
Dany appears back in Meereen literally as soon as the city is set on fire. How are Tyrion and Missandei and Grey Worm ever going to explain this? It better not happen on screen. Would love to watch Dany sit all of them down, and suddenly be like, “WAIT, WHO RAIDED THE LIQUOR CABINET?” [Slowly, Missandei and Grey Worm both point at Tyrion]
14. Meereen in general
For a lack of a better expression, the city is in chaos, and it is only getting worse. We need an entire bottle episode about how Meereen is going to fix itself. I really picture Meereen as Pawnee, Indiana right now. I would love to see a Meereen city hall meeting.
15. THE DRAGONS
Drogon is flying free right now. Rhaegal and Viserion are still locked up in the dungeon. Remember them? You might not, because everyone seems to have forgotten they’re locked up in the dungeon. #FreeTheDragons
16. THAT GIANT DOTHRAKI ARMY
Remember how Meereen is in chaos? Where the heck is Dany going to house her new Dothraki friends? They can’t all crash at her place.
17. Ser Jorah and his greyscale
This was a ~big plot line~ mostly due to the fact that Jorah was keeping it a ~secret~. Now he’s just ~gone~.
18. Hey, remember the Tower of Joy?
PARTY AT THE TOWER OF JOY. Date: TBD ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
19. The fact that Davos does still not know how Shireen DIED
OH GOD OH GOD OH GOD OH NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooOOOoooooooOOOOOoooooooo
20. Melissandre being a billion years old
Game of Thrones game us this big OMG moment during the first episode of Season 6. It has not been addressed since.
21. Where did all these Red Women come from?
Suddenly, there are like, a bunch of High Priestesses. Are they, too, a billion years old?
22. The Sand Snakes
LOL, remember the Sand Snakes? Are we just supposed to forget that we ever went to Dorne?
23. BRING. BACK. LYANNA. MORMONT
YAS QUEEN YAAAASSSSSS. MORE LYANNA. MORE LYANNA OR WE RIOT. DON’T MAKE US WAIT TILL SEASON 7.
24. The Tower of Joy
