Ok, so Game of Thrones was all over last week but we love it so much we had to write one last post. In case you, like us, aren't ready to let go just yet, we've broken down each episode, pulling out our favourite quotes and paying tribute to the incredibly long list of characters we lost. Seriously, look at this list. Look at it. They took out so many people and almost half were in episode 9 and 10, it's impressive.

In case you missed them, we've also added links to each of our episode discussions. Until next year *sigh*.

Episode 1 - The Red Woman

In memory, Doran

This episode we lost

Doran Martell, Area Hotah and Trystane Martell.

In quotes

“You're a greedy bitch, you know that?” - Nymeria Sand
Greedy with murders. We've all been there.

“Seeing a beautiful woman naked for the first time is among the five best things in life.” - Khal Moro
Among his five best things he includes smoky eyeliner, learning new ponytail styles, hanging out with your bros and breaking a wild horse.


We watch — Episode 1: We chatted about all the events from the first episode and *that* final scene that creeped everyone out.

Let's face it, this season was overrun with articles, everywhere. From online fashion magazines, music magazines and all those journalists who basically dug through Reddit and made a whole article based on a random theory. But there was one person who created something each week that we immediately had to find and read. That was Chrys Reviews, who created her own little 'comic strip' of each episode. It was a delight to read and if you missed it, prepare to enjoy season six all over again but with far more lols: Chrys Reviews - Episode 1

Episode 2 - Home

In memory, Roose

This episode we lost

Roose Bolton, Fat Walda & newborn child, Balon Greyjoy and Shaggydog. (we're listing as ep 2, but likely before)

Next Tuesday we'll be starting a different blog series but one we hope you'll really like!
