Are you still reeling from Sunday night’s epic Game of Thrones Season 6 finale like me!? Personally, I don’t know how series creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will ever be able to outdo themselves after that 69 minute masterpiece, the longest episode in the show’s history. The HBO series is based off of Bayonne native George R.R. Martin’s best-selling book series, A Song of Ice and Fire.
(And before you read more, there are spoilers galore ahead.)
They most certainly went out with a bang in “The Winds of Winter,” killing off more main characters in this episode, than in any other previous one. So many monumental moments went down — from Cersei, as hotly speculated, unleashing the wildfire and taking down the High Sparrow and The Faith Militant, to Arya getting that oh so gratifying Red Wedding revenge, to Tommen plunging to his death, and Daenerys finally leaving Meereen and heading to Westeros with newly appointed Hand of the Queen, Tyrion Lannister (played by Morristown native Peter Dinklage). We also received the long-awaited confirmation of Jon Snow’s true parentage, validating the popular R+L=J theory.
So much went down, that I was left utterly speechless. And I would love to know why Cersei’s stunning all-black ensemble isn’t getting more attention. She was slaying that look!
I clearly was not the only one freaking out over this legendary season finale. Celebrities across the Garden State were as equally as enthralled as me.
Albie Manzo is apparently a massive GOT fan. His brother Chris Manzo confirmed that with me when he answered 21 Questions. The Manzo’d With Children star could not contain his excitement on Twitter (and for the record Al I am so with you, greatest show of all time).
Englewood native Frankie Grande tried his best Daenerys Targaryen impersonation, but unfortunately failed miserably. We love you Frankie, but you are no Mother of Dragons.
New Jersey yoga queen Laura Kasperzak certainly wasn’t the only one not able to sit still during that monumental episode.
Can it be April 2017 already or what!?
