It’s actually taken me several days to collect myself after the season finale of Game of Thrones. The final episode, “Mother’s Mercy” took its toll on me, as it has for many other fans across the globe. Oddly enough, the ending came as no surprise (unlike the results of “The Rains of Castamere” or “The Mountain and the Viper”). As I’ve mentioned in other articles, I am not a reader of A Song of Ice and Fire, so what I know is taken only from the television show. There was a time when I never would have believed GRRM or Weiss and Benioff would kill off Jon Snow, but as we all know by now, ALL MEN MUST DIE.
