Default Game of Thrones S6 |OT| This thread is dark and full of spoilers

So yeah, whatd you think of the premiere? I thought it was good except for the Sand Snake stuff. God I hate them. Theyre so boring. It's like D and D are trying to set them up as some sort of sad avengers but they're just terrible. I sincerely doubt Oberyn would approve of the Sand Snakes and Obara taking revenge on the Lannisters by killin his brother and his nephew. Like wtf. And the whole guard just approved too? Anywho, I was slightly peeved that theyre gonna make us wait for Jon's eventual revival but at least it gave us that hilarious "**** this, im out." scene from Meli. Cracked up at that. And more of Davos being Davos is always a good thing. Also happy Sansa is finally with Brienne. I was gonna give up on life if she had been caught again. Looks like Dany and Sansa switched lucks for once. I wonder how far Dany will make it back to Vaes Dothrak before either Daario or Jorah die. You know it's coming. And speaking of luck that never runs out, Arya keeps ****ing up and the Faceless men just seem to love her. Maybe Ned Stark was secretly a Faceless Man and thats why they keep giving her chances. Cant wait for her eventual transformation into Daredevil. Anyway, cant wait for the new episode.

This ep mostly seemed like refresher to get everybody up to speed of what happened last year. Which was nice. Jon's revival is like the worst kept secret I ever seen lol, Melisandre pls bring the heat. Speaking of Meli, still would the non-necklace version. And yea hopefully there will be less screen time of the Snake Girls. It seemed like they did everything they could possibly do in their region. Now ready for Bran to make that comeback.

Such a mixed bag of an episode. And by mixed bag I mean 80 percent crap and like 20 percent cool. Daenerys somehow making it all the way back to Vaes Dothrak in the span of a few days is mind boggling. That means that Drogon flew ****ing far away when he saved Daenerys. Injured even. It's just so damn inconceivable that Drogon would do that. Like, it's possible but just super convenient for the plot's sake. D&D pissing me off. This whole plotline better be for something other than to give Tyrion and everyone else something to do or I'm gonna lose it. I'm serious, Daenerys better become the mother****ing Mother of Horses or some **** by the end of the season. Like, i'm enjoying Varys and Tyrion's adventures in Mereen as much as the next guy but even I have my limits for stupid writing. Anywho, King's Landing has gone to **** too. Tommen is honestly the most infuriating character in the whole series. Even Sansa doesn't piss me off this much. Quote a few bible verses and the kid suddenly forgets that the smelly homeless man in front of him has his smoking hot wife in chains and also made his mom walk through the streets naked while people pelted her with ****. Joffrey is looking up from the Seven Hells and shaking his damn head. I want some goddamn blood already!q A 7 foot tall walking monster, the entirety of the Kingsguard and and the City watch and they're being pushed around by bald dudes with billy clubs. And while i'm complaining, **** Arya and Bran's story lines. I know Arya is GRRM's wife's favorite character but this is getting ridiculous. She's not learning anything! These tests from the Faceless Men are so obvious that i'm beginning to wonder if they're actually a secret assassin group or if it's like the boyscouts where anyone can join. Last season when Arya lost her eyes (which I was totally devastated by but cool with because it's what she deserved) I was hoping that she'd finally learn some humility. All throughout the series it's just been "wah wah wah i want to kill a bunch of people because they slighted me in some way". Newsflash, Arya, half the ****ing world has been slighted in some way but they don't go around making creepy murder lists. But no, I guess she somehow sucked up the entire Stark family luck and everything is going to be handed to her on a silver platter. The series will probably end with Melisandre personally reviving everyone on Arya's list so she can kill them all over again. And **** Bran and the Three Eyed Raven for being ****ing story teases. It's like i'm watching the worst episode of Mr. Peabody and Sherman because we never actually get to learn about history. The only part of the show that is consistently good right now is Jon. Motha****ing Jon Snow coming back from the dead to snap some necks and cash some checks. Nothing has been quite as satisfying as seeing Olly and Alliser being executed. Maester Aemon must be so proud that Jon finally killed the boy. And that mic drop at the end? A thing of beauty, I tell ya. Shove the Night's Watch up yer ass, Edd. Jon Snow out! So goddamn boss. Now Jon's gonna make his way down south to take his mother****ing place on the throne of Winterfell. Better watch out, Ramsey! But seriously, I'm looking forward to seeing where he goes next. Can't wait.


PS: **** Sam and Gilly too. I stopped caring about their whole schtick all the way back in season 2.

I agree on the Lannisters shoulda already wiped out the cult. A bunch of suckas with billy clubs ain't nothing. This is the Arya training! She's learning a bunch! Putting crack in a glass vase is top assassin training. I'm enjoying that stuff. Seeing some Stark history through Bran is neat. That duel weilding guy was gangsta. Olly is finally kill and the world rejoices. DO NOT CUT GILLY. She's freaking adorable, I won't have it.

This episode was slightly better than last week's but not as good as episode 2. Enjoyed Dany becoming the Khaleesi of all the ****ing Dothraki, High Sparrow's origin story because it turns out he's not a tragic figure but just some crazy nut, Cersei preparing to make her move, Littlefinger wheeling and dealing, and Jon and Sansa reuniting and deciding on taking back Winterfell. Was indifferent to Theon getting home, and Tyrion making deals with the Masters. Hated anything and everything to do with Ramsey. It's not that he's infuriating it's that he's so ****ing lame. Discount Joffrey mother****er. A few seasons back I would have enjoyed seeing his upcoming complete and utter devastation but now theyre just dragging it out. I don't know how many more "Ramsey is evil and sadistic" moments I can take. We get it, he's evil! Dude physically tortured and maimed some random guy for weeks because it was funny before we even knew his name. We already knew he was evil. Now he's killing his father and feeding his lover, step mom and baby to his dogs. Talk about overkill. Less is more, guys! Joffrey was so hated because of the weight of the things he did, not the amount of carnage and destruction he caused. Dude was a spoiled **** who genuinely took delight in hurting others and was good at it. Ramsey is evil just to be evil. Cut his throat and be done with it. Osha deserved to go out at the hands of someone cooler. RIP beautiful Osha. You're with your hubby now. Anyway, highly anticipating what's to come. We're gonna get both the attack on Winterfell and the battle to rescue Margaery and Loras. **** is gonna be epic.


PS: Cracked up so hard at Brienne going up to Davos and Melisandre unprovoked and basically dropping the bomb that she killed Stannis. And then to top it off ****ing Tormund eye****ing her at the dinner table. I haven't laughed that hard in ages. Gotta give it to Tormund, dude isn't shy about what he wants.

Man, it seems like such a step back that the main squad has to deal with Ramsey now instead of the Walkers. Hopefully that battle won't be dragged out.

Aww man this episode. Felt like classic Game of Thrones. Political intrigue, assassination plots, so many sad deaths. Goddammit I wasn't ready for all these deaths. Hodor and Summer and 3ER and stuff. But especially Hodor. I ****ing loved that goofy Hodoring mother****er. And the explanation for the way he is? Broke my ****ing heart. Dude probably knew what was gonna happen to him for the past 40 years. I'm gonna start to cry if I think about it anymore. Like honestly, i'm going to cry about a fictitious giant oaf. 3ER didn't plan things for ****. Could have at least given Bran a bit of a heads up. Be like "Hey man, so the Night's King can totally see you in these visions and **** so please don't go on any trips without me." And then there was no plan for escape set in place either! That door ( ;_; ) was completely sealed. I honestly hope Bran's training is worth it in the end because if not the 3ER was a total idiot. Glad to see things pick up on other ends too. Even if I don't exactly think it's for the best. Littlefinger is definitely up to something. Like hell he'd just drop a super helpful piece of information like that unless it helped him. I feel like Sansa and Jon are walking straight into a trap. Just praying the new found Stark luck is strong enough to keep them safe. Seems like Arya's always is. Im actually starting to see the point in her storyline. All the tests from the Faceless Men do seem so easy but they really aren't. Getting in and learning their ways, anyone can do that. However, repeating the words to yourself "I am no one" over and over doesn't make them true deep down. Arya can train like a Faceless Man all she wants but she'll never be able to let herself go. I think all of this is leading up to her realizing that she can't give up who she is and she'll return to Westeros to fulfill her destiny. Everyone has a role to play and Arya has been trying to run from hers for so long.

Anywho, Theon just can't catch a break. Dude keeps getting run off. I'm just sitting here laughing though because Euron is setting himself up for such a downfall. Dude thinks he's just gonna roll up to Daenerys' house and make himself king. Like he honestly believes that. It's just so funny. Dany is gonnna roast him like a pig (perhaps quite literally) and take his fleet. Or Theon and Yara will stop him before he even gets that far and just take his plan for themselves. Either way, Dany is gonna have herself a real nice fleet of Ironborn pretty damn soon. And speaking of Dany, really interested to see what this new priestess has up her sleeve. I totally believe that the people who follow TLOL think Dany is the true Azor Ahai but you can never trust a Red Priestess' methods. Like they are just crazy mother****ers. Still, I'm excited come what may. I missed this. I missed not knowing what was gonna happen and being excited for the next episode. Keep it up, D&D.

PS: Kinvara is in Game of Thrones, y'all!

PPS: Hodor, man. Ill always love that guy.

t-thanks Bran

Of course Sansa and Jon are walking into a trap, it's freaking advice from Littlefinger. The reenactment play Arya was watching was good stuff ( ͡? ͜ʖ ͡?). The Greyjoy inaugural ceremony was also cool, wonder if anyone has died during that.YO THAT KINVARA. Hodor's origin reveal was really mind blowing and this ep was great. RIP

Episode 6 was pretty okay. Goddamn son of a *****in' Uncle Benjen tho. I think I actually cried when I saw him. It's literally been years since we've seen that asshole. Way to help out your other nephew tho. Dude's been on the other side of the wall and in danger like a million times. I also liked a lot of the stuff being set up. Surprisingly, favorite plot thread was Sam. **** the dad. Sam is the real OG. But also, ****ing Tommen. What a dick. He cock blocked me, bro. Cock blocked me like a *****. I wanted to get my awesome Sparrow beatdown. Soon, my precious. Soon. But anyway, Arya has finally been set on the correct path. She will never be no one and now she realizes that. Too bad the Waif holds onto grudges like a Japanese ghost. And holy ****, Walder Frey is still alive and the Black Fish is actually in holding Riverrun. I can't believe Littlefinger actually told the truth for once. This gonn' be gud. In conclusion, pretty good setup episode but not a great one.

PS: **** Daenerys. Getting tired of her bull****. We get it, she's the goddamn Queen of Dragons. Like, I don't even understand what happened at the end there. It was all so contrived.

THE HOUND. HOLY ****ING ****, THE HOUND. CLEGANEBOWL CONFIRMED. CLEGANEBOWL CONFIRMED. DO YOU BELIEVE IN MIRACLES!?!?? I actually like 100 percent cried when I saw that beautiful bastard. Like no lie, actually cried tears of joy. This episode has to have been the best episode of the season just because of the Hound. Ian McShane was so amazing too. Goddamn he's a great actor. Just everything about the Hound's plotline was so good. That camaraderie. That life advice. That determination at the end. The Hound has some unfinished business to attend to and i'm glad he's finally getting to it. The rest of the episode was also pretty good. I knew that smirking ***** from High Garden was up to something. Also loved how Lady Olenna stuck it to Cersei. In your ****ing face, Cersei. Also glad to see Jamie getting down to some real Game of Thrones bidnizz. Some good ol' fashioned sieges and warfare is what the show was missing. Blackfish vs Kingslayer '16 get your tickets right here. Jon, Sansa and Davos' adventures around the north gave me severe flashbacks to my days as a Jehovah's Witness. "Sir, do you want to hear about our lord and savior, Jon Snow?" *door slammed in our faces* Seriously though, it's good to see them get rejected after just 2 Houses. It'd have pissed me off if everyone just joined back up with the Starks like nothing. Gotta work to get back that land. Also allowed me to see the delightfully great young actress playing Lyanna Mormont. Seriously, that little kid was fantastic. She had some real stage presence. Oh and can't forget that now Sansa is also making her move. Dunno who she's calling but it better be worth it. Raughed at Yara bringing Theon to a goddamn *****house. Like seriously, that's messed up. No pretty speech is gonna make up for that messed up **** lol. It was pretty obvious where they'd be heading but it's good to see it confirmed too. Looks like Dany is getting exactly what she needs. Again. The luck that never ends. Last but not least tho is Arya being a moron. Like, you betrayed a group of people who can literally be anyone and are master assassins. Wtf did you think was gonna happen, stupid!?!?! Im just glad she has plot armor out the wazoo cuz when I saw her get stabbed Talisa style my heart sank. Guess I still care about that little bugger. She better watch her back though cuz the Waif doesn't seem like one to give up so easily. All in all, this was a fantastic episode and return to form for GoT. Next week can't come fast enough.

Of course Hound is still alive. I am also glad Jamie is back in the world doing stuff. Next EP teaser showed Brienne conversing with him so that will be an interesting reunion. Lady Lyanna is pretty cute and cool so far. YFW those 62 solders single handily defeat Ramsay. Theon seems to be over the punished state now, all he needed was a drink! My heart didn't sank at all when Arya got shanked. Ain't no way she dying that easily and destroying that whole plotline. I know this is GoT but yea, biggest plot armor.

Episode 8 was pretty **** tbh. I got cock blocked, bro. Goddamn Tommen and the Brotherhood without banners killing my dreams of the Cleganebowl. D&D had everything set up for the perfect combining of plot threads that would have lead up to the greatest battle of all time and instead they chose to go with this. I get that they're probably cancelling the Cleganebowl so that they can have the Hound in a more active role and because they probably want to end the High Sparrow thread in time for season 7 but Cleganebowl would have been so cathartic. The Hound getting the retribution he's always wanted and Cersei finally getting what's coming to her while also finally getting revenge for Oberyn's death. GOD! Imagine how satisfying that would have been. But oh well, at least we got to see the Hound kill a few folks before being being put aside for the next season. That scene with that one dude who sucked at dying was hilarious.

As for King's Landing, I honestly have no idea how any of that is gonna go down. Like, without the trial by combat Cersei is pretty ****ed. Maybe she'll just send in the Mountain to Oberyn the High Sparrow and everyone else in the Sept lol. Or maybe the "rumor" the maester dude and Cersei were talking about relates to the High Sparrow and he'll be discredited somehow. Whatevs, don't even care anymore. I just wanted to see Cleganebowl or at least see that one dude die by the Mountain's hands and now it seems I won't get either.

Dany side was pretty crappy too. Sending Varys away to "search for more allies" is a pretty cheap way to sideline important characters that you don't know what to do with and the Masters suddenly attacking out of nowhere just seems like a bit of a stretch. "The Masters have come back to claim their property." Shut up, Missandei of Naath you beautiful goddess. No they didn't. They just came to make Mereen relevant again. And then Dany comes in to save the day instead of having Tyrion deal with the mess he made. It's like no one matters on Dany's side but Dany. They're all just there as props to show off her awesome coolness.

And finally, the ****tiest of them all was Arya "Valyrian Plot Armor" Stark. Jesus Christ this girl is ****ing invincible. Stabbed repeatedly, tired and weak and she somehow beat a semi skilled assassin that was at full health. It's enough to make me puke. I'm okay with her surviving and beating the Waif but at least give us a good explanation about it. Don't literally and figuratively keep us in the dark. Still, glad they're finally moving along with Arya's character. I wonder what she'll do now that she's going back to the main plotline.

The only story thread that was good this episode was Riverrun. Seeing Brienne and Jaime and Pod and Bronn reunite was heartwarming. Truest BrOTP is Brienne and Jaime. That nod at the end. We even got to see a pretty good Jaime moment when he conv-threatened Edmure. The way he spoke about Cersei and what he'd do for her was honestly unsettling. Blackfish died an honorable death. I know some people would argue that he should have gone with Brienne and Pod but the dude wanted to die in his home and also I doubt Jaime would have let him escape. Overall a pretty **** episode in a season of mostly Bs. I'll give it a pass cuz it wasn't anywhere near Season 5 level of badness.

****, son. What can I say? This episode was pretty dope. Battle of the Bastards indeed. While I didn't like that some of the focus was given to Mereen I did enjoy seeing Dany deal with the invaders. ****ing finally, guys. After like 4 seasons we finally get to see full grown dragons roasting some suckas. Like, this is it. This is what they've been saying dragons are capable of since forever ago and we finally get to see it. The CG was pretty top notch too. And then we were treated to Yara and Dany scene which was a delight. Yara is possible the sassiest person in all of the show. I was cracking up so bad at every retort.

Anywho, the first meeting with Ramsey was great. Lyanna Mormont looked as badass as ever. Here's a 10 year old girl looking at one of the biggest psychopaths in the whole world and she's just like "this mother****er needs to be taught some manners." So great. And it was nice to see Sansa finally grow some backbone. At least sort of. I get why she might have wanted to stay quiet about Littlefinger and his armies cuz they might not be chill with that but she could have been more forthcoming. Being super vague about stuff isn't helpful at all. Or she could have told Jon about the army and he could have said something about not trusting Littlefinger and gone on with the attack anyway.

Tormund and Davos bonding after the war meeting was pretty funny tho. Davos just had to find that ****ing deer tho. I knew we couldn't just have a happy ending. Melisandre said that Jon might be brought back but I doubt she'll be that lucky. The only part that pissed me off in the whole damn episode was goddamn Rickon. ****ing stupid Rickon with his dumbass face. I kept screaming "Serpentine!" at my screen repeatedly during all that. You deserved to die for being so stupid, Rickon.

The battle itself was ****ing intense tho. That was some of the best fighting choreography i've ever seen. No more Sand Snake battles for us. Everything was so goddamn visceral and bloody and brutal. It was fantastic. I wasn't really scared for Jon tho. If he does die again during the series it won't be from something small like being trampled. I expect Jon to die at the hands of the Night King at least. You don't get a second chance and then waste it like that. You just don't. Still, seeing the Knights of the Vale was kind of an (expected) relief. I wasn't sure if Tormund was gonna survive so to see the battle end and Ramsey run back to Winterfell like a ***** was great. Poor Wun Wun tho. He didn't deserve this. Dude was too precious for this world.

At least his death was not in vain. Jon beating Ramsey's face in was oh so good. Jon and I both needed that. Sansa was the one that got the best revenge tho. My god, the dogs at the end and her smiling face will haunt me forever. Just so great. Season finale next week. Only loose ends are the High Sparrows and other bits and bobbles. I want some blood, damn you. Give me the blood!!!! But seriously, I hope we don't delay the end of that plotline to season 7. If they're not gonna give me Cleganebowl I just want to be done with it all.

This has to be one of the best, if not best episodes of Game of Thrones ever. Just everything about it was so incredible and amazing. From the way it was shot to the music to the acting. It all came together in such a way that I didn't want it to end. Seriously though, I really have to hand it to the cinematographers for this episode. The way the cameras flowed through each scene, showing us the different perspectives and how everything was lining up was incredible. Cersei's plan being put into motion was like watching a Rube Goldberg machine. One thing moving the next. RIP my waifu Margaery. It's like, I'm not even mad or sad that she died though. Everything going according to Cersei's plan and the look on the High Sparrow's face when he realized what was going on was simply exquisite. And when she left Septa Unella? Priceless. I don't know how to describe it. I hate Cersei but I love to hate her. She's so incredibly evil and conniving and even though she does all these terrible things I can't help but be impressed at how great she is at being bad. The only victim of Cersei's terrible crimes that I really feel sorry for is Tommen. Looking back at the season with what I know now I feel like I was too harsh on him. He was a normal person in the world of Game of Thrones. Normal people ain't cut out for this ****. And he was a super sensitive normal person. He was never meant to be king and he never expected it. Like Tyrion said, the great game is terrifying and Tommen was still just a boy. He didn't know how to handle it. Then the weight of seeing the truly awful thing his mom did just pushed him over the edge. No pun intended. RIP kiddo. You're with Ser Pounce now. Oh and Myrcella too I guess. Now that Cersei is Queen and pretty much hated by everyone in the world I wonder if Jamie will stand by her. This whole season has been pretty much setting him up to see the error of his ways and look at what the path he's walking will lead down to. Now that Cersei did such a vile thing, will his love for her keep him at her side? Or will Jamie finally redeem himself truly?

Dany's side was fantastic as well. After waiting so long and seeing her struggle and fight her way to the top it's satisfying to finally see her on her way. I didn't even mind that the terrible Sand Snakes were shown. Seriously, that's how awesome it was. When Varys showed up and said the Targaryen House words I screamed like a girl. Everything came together almost perfectly this season! My boy Daario had to get his heart broken. Not many days you get dumped by the Mother of Dragons. Dude should be honored. Sorta. And that scene with Tyrion getting named Hand was so emotional. I'm big enough to admit I teared up. Dude has been through **** all his life and now he's finally found a place where he's not only respected but also needed. In that moment where Dany pinned that badge on him he stood taller than any man. And with those ships and the Dothraki under her belt and dragons in the sky the dragon queen makes her way to Westeros. There will be fire and blood next year, guys. Get hype.

But the absolute best part of the episode had to be all that happened in the north. Davos' actor is great. Dude really nailed the heartbreak and sadness. We'll be seeing Meli again so I'm not worried. The Lord of Light, which I now know is just a codename for D&D, still needs her. And speaking of gods, Arya was doing some real good work for The Many Faced God over in The Twins. I bet TMFG has just been dying to get old Walder Frey. Geddit? Dying? But seriously, i'm glad that dusty old sack of **** and his ilk got what was coming to them. We were promised retribution from the Gods for what he did at the Red Wedding and it was only fitting that Arya was the one to do it. One more name off her list. Old Frey wasnt the only one that got absolutely murdered though. Littlefinger got BTFO by everyone. Getting rejected by Sansa must have hurt but then having to watch as your plans fall to pieces because of a 10 year old girl was probably more painful than all the death scenes in the show so far. I don't think i've ever seen him so angry. Littlefinger's schemes just couldn't stand up to the might of the White Wolf, Son of the Dragon and King in the North!

The way they set up the reveal of Jon's true parentage was simply perfect. Bran is still alive and on his way past the wall? Check. Finally get to see the Tower of Joy flashback? Check. R+L=J finally ****ing confirmed? Check. That shot with the baby and then the transition to Jon's face was one of the best filmed scenes on television. The music was superb and the emotional weight behind it made it all the better. All his life he believed he was just some bastard. Hell, even in the beginning of this very episode he remembered how low he's always felt, how insignificant. I'm happy that Jon is finally getting what he deserves. But I don't think that Jon should get all these honors and titles just because of who he is but because of the person he is. Yes, Jon grew up more privileged than other bastards and even other normal people but his family, though not intentionally in most cases, and simply the world around him never let him forget what he was. And because he knew what he was and what he'd never be, he never stopped trying grow past that. When they called him bastard, he worked to show that he was as good as any trueborn son. He cared for the weak and and he loved those that were his enemy. Jon is such a sympathetic character because in the world of Game of Thrones and even in our world it would have been easy to go down a darker path. The show and the book constantly remind us of the evil that lurks in men's hearts. No one would have been surprised if the constantly beaten down Jon Snow started cutting throats and doing all sorts of terrible things. But Jon chose to keep fighting. In a world of darkness, he is a shining white light of hope. And also that Kit Harrington is a total cutie. (Sorry, was getting too serious so I had to undercut it with a joke)

Now that the season is over and done with, I'd like to give my thoughts on all 10 episodes as a whole. While there were many missteps and flaws, the season stood out overall as one of the best of the show. I was worried that without GRRM to guide their every step D&D would be like babes in the forest. And as of right now I feel like I have to apologize to them. I didn't give them enough credit and I doubted them all the way. I know that GRRM must have at least provided them with the basic framework that they based the season on but they did most of the work themselves and they were fantastic. I may have felt a little shaky this past April but no more. I am really looking forward to what they will bring us next year. And with that, i'm out.

Saved The Battle of the Bastards viewing for tonight

IT WAS EXTREMELY HYPE, RIP WUN WUN ;;;;_;;;

Now onto the finale. WINTER IS HERE. Cersei bought the much needed death to the sparrows BUT AT WHAT COST ;;_;;. Gonna need a gif of Tommen jumping because that honestly extremely hilarious to me. Life isn't worth living when hot waifu is taken away.

Daenerys breaking up with husbando was kinda painful. Dude got cucked hard. Yea Tyrion receiving the hand was a great scene. Greyjoy alliance officially complete. The whole squad is finally on point and on sail to Westeros. It's finally happening.

So is Jon half Targaryen now? Absolute madman. Ned bearing all the blame for infidelity all these years. Is there truly a greater man? Melisandre will totally be back. Based Lady Lyanna doing a hype speech at the feast was 2cute. Little Finger still being a creep. Also Sam finally reaching the Citadel was a neat scene. All I could think when they got to the Library is that a huge Owl should be popping up and asking him if he has anything to contribute. Arya got revenge, good on her.

WINTER IS HERE. Good Season Cya Next Year. WINTER IS HERE.
