What a season, what a season. Many say that s5 has been weak, slow and not as good as the other ones but i highly disagree. A lot happened. Everything happened. So that's why i'm making a list (more or less in chronological order) of the biggest events that have happened during this season. Many are from the absolute stunning season finale but as you will see there has happened a lot before. Let's begin after the cut!
The Wars to Come (5x01) was also another big moment. Mance got sentenced to death burning in flames by Stannis (he does like fire) but with the luck of having Jon Snow putting an arrow into his heart to release him from such a painful death. I started to like Jon Snow a bit better after this, of course that couldn't last long but it was really honorable and he gained all my respects.
(5x05)'s final scene where Tyrion and Jorah enter the ruins of Old Valyria and they got attacked by the Stone Men with Jorah getting a first sign of gresyscale on his hand. As if he didn't have it difficult enough. Not only he's forever friendzoned by Daenerys but he gets exiled from Mereen. But thanks to him we got the new allegiance Daenerys-Tyrion that, i'm guessing will end up in marriage as her other two suitors cannot marry her for not having a higher position.
Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken (5x06) and we all know what she got coming. Little did Sansa know that Tyrion Lannister would be her best husband to date. I never really expected for her to be deflowered like that, in a scene like that, so awfully painful. The whole moment was horrid to watch because you felt bad for her and she even had a witness to that brutal moment. Ramsay is a psycho and let's hope he has a long painful death.
The Dance with Dragons (5x09) and burns his only living daughter Shireen in order to conquer Winterfell. Noone saw that coming, in fact, some episodes earlier he finally acknowledged her as his daughter, thing that he never had done before turning out to be a really sweet moment. So all this was really horrid to watch because we all liked little princess Shireen. Also, it was nice to see that her mom wasn't all that crazy in the end and she tried to save her from the fire.
Hardhome (5x08) because of reasons. It put to shame any zombie movie or tv show out there because it was just so terrifying and nerve wrecking. And not only the chasing and nearly death of Jon Snow but also the very ending, with the Wildling Elders bringing back to live all those who they have killed and adding them to their enormous army. It's a lost battle and it must be so scary to think you can die and turn into one of them. Fucking epic scene.
The Dance with Dragons (5x09), where Khaleesi reopens the fighting pits and she gets ambushed by the Sons of the Harpy. The whole scene, starting with Ser Jorah noticing everything quickly and saving Daenerys was amazing, followed by the whole scene of them fighting against a multitude until Drogon comes to mommy's rescue and they (amazingly) fly away. That was so amazing to watch, such an awesome scene.
Mother's Mercy (5x10) – Take note how much has happened before this episode (for those who say nothing happened this season until the last ep.). Where do i begin? First we got the sad ending for Myrcella, such a precious princess that was in fact living her fairytale dream (everything that Sansa wished and didn't have). It was refreshing to see someone getting a happy ending but Ellaria and the Sand Snakes couldn't just let it go and poisoned her right when she accepted Jamie as her father. That was really sad for her and especially for him, because he got the guts to come clean to his niece/daughter and received the response he had always wished. Not even the Lannisters can be happy.
EW, so read that for some semi-spoilers. But it was a perfect ending for a really decent season that, as you see, was filled with lots of plot twists, deaths and agony.
