Every time a good book is adapted for the screen, the readers and the watchers get into passionate discussions about which is better. The characters from the books are compared against the characters on the screen and the casting is a topic of endless discussions. When it comes to Game of Thrones that is based on the series A Song of Ice and Fire by George RR Martin, things are no different.
The producers of the show have done a fantastic job and the series is commendably well-made. But hardcore book fans, even though most of them enjoy binge-watching the series, miss some important Game of Thrones characters from the books that were completely omitted from the series. In the spirit of the 7, here are the top 7 characters from the books that we wish we could have seen on the screen.
Book fans have been very vocal about the silly arc that Dorne has been given in the series. Oberyn Martell was the only Dornishman everybody liked, but we know how that one ended. Not pretty! The whole idea of ‘sand snakes’ was good in concept, but the execution left much to be desired. Doran and Trystane get killed without much event. And we are left wondering, What just happened here?
The books have a much stronger storyline with Princess Arianne Martell, Doran’s first-born and heir. She is fierce, clever, stubborn, and unafraid. The bickering sand snakes can never come close to the regal way in which Arianne exudes her strength. She was once promised to Prince Viserys (yes, the fake dragon). And through Arianne, we also get a glimpse of Dorne’s non-patriarchal laws where a daughter can ascend to her father’s throne. The way she carefully plans Myrcella’s ascent to the Iron Throne after Joffrey’s death would have been a treat to watch on the show. But one can only wish.
Catelyn Stark was a much-loved character in the books as well as on the show. And her sudden murder at the infamous Red Wedding was shocking, to say the least. While viewers who had read the books kept waiting for Catelyn to be resurrected as Lady Stoneheart, many were disappointed when it became clear that this character would not be a part of the show.
In the books, Lady Stark who is murdered by the Freys and thrown into the river as a mockery of the River Lords’ funeral rites, is found by Beric Dondarion and his outlaws. Beric (he who never dies) apparently gives her already decomposing body a new lease of life by sacrificing his own. After she comes back from the dead as Lady Stoneheart, she takes revenge on everybody who she thinks wronged her family. While Catelyn was a beautiful woman, Lady Stoneheart is terrible to behold. With curdled skin, unhealed wounds and brittle white hair, she moves around cloaked and hooded.
Now, this is one character from the books that added a massive twist to the plot in the books. In the books, Rhaegar’s trueborn son with Elia is alive and is in Essos under a pseudonym Young Griff. He has dyed his trademark Targaryen silver hair blue to stay hidden. His real name is, of course, Aegon. Apparently, the ‘prince’ was replaced by a common child and that was whom The Mountain killed while the real Aegon was smuggled out of King’s Landing.
While some (no doubt Jon Snow supporters) believe that this Aegon is just an imposter, only GRRM knows what would happen to him. Also, he is the heir to the Iron Throne, being the first-born son of Rhaegar. And for those who were disturbed by the Jon-Dany love angle in the show (She’s his aunt!), get this! Young Griff is on a mission to go and meet his aunt Daenerys to ask her hand in marriage so that both of them can sit on the throne! Shocked? Well, what can we say, they are Targaryens after all! Also, it would have been fun to see Aegon (Young Griff) and Aegon (Jon Snow) fighting for Aunt Dany’s love.
We all know Theon’s uncle Euron Greyjoy who murders King Balon and is known for his almost crazed cruelty. And we also had a glimpse of Theon’s other uncle Aeron Damphair in the series. But, in the books, Theon has one more uncle – Victarion. After Balon Geryjoy’s death, Victarion tries to claim the Seastone chair but loses to brother Euron.
And interestingly, it’s not just the Seastone chair for which the two brothers compete. While in the series, Euron will kill for marrying Cersei, in the books, it’s Daenerys he wants. And so does his brother Victarion. While it needs to be seen what fate these two brothers meet, Victarion, a strong man and in GRRM’s words, “a dullard and a brute”, has a very interesting character progression that we all missed in the show.
This is one more character from the books that is so important in the scheme of things! Quentyn is Doran Martell’s son and Arianne’s younger brother. The Prince of Dorne has an important mission to fulfill. A stocky man, strong, but not handsome, Quentyn has an interesting character. In the books, we see him stealthily moving from Westeros to Essos to seek out Daenerys Targaryen on the orders of his father.
And in case you are wondering why he is traveling across continents to meet Dany, well it’s only because he, too, wants to marry her (Get in line, Quentyn. There are others, too!) Well, the Targaryens and the Martells go back a long way. And both Houses have one common enemy – the Lannisters. So, the two Houses joining by marriage again and taking vengeance from the Lannisters makes perfect sense.
On the show, when Joffrey sends the City Watch to get rid of all of Robert’s natural born children, only Gendry survives, thanks to Yoren. But, in the books, there’s one more blue-eyed, black-haired child – Edric Storm. So, Robert’s drinking and womanizing got the better of him on Stannis’s wedding night. He met a distant cousin of Stannis’s wife Selyse and well, long story short, Edric Storm was born. He was raised in Stannis’s care along with cousin Shireen.
A bright boy, he meets a similar fate as Gendry in the show. The Red Priestess, Mellisaandre, leeches him to get the ‘King’s blood’, and prepares to give him to the Lord of Light. But, in the nick of time, everybody’s favourite Onion Knight aka Ser Davos saves the day. He sends Edric away and faces Stannis’ wrath.
Jon Connington is a very important character in the books, though he had no place in the show. Connington, who identifies himself as Griff is the one who also poses as Young Griff’s father while they are in hiding. He is actually an exiled Lord, banished by the Mad King Aerys for losing a battle against Ned Stark and Hoster Tully. And if the theory of Rhaegar and Elia’s son Aegon being smuggled out of the Red Keep is to be believed, it was Connington who helped make it possible. He is a seasoned battle commander and under his able guidance, Prince Aegon is raised as Young Griff.
Connington was a very close and devoted friend to Rhaegar Targaryen and refers to Rhaegar as his ‘silver prince’. His mission is to help Young Griff (Prince Aegon) retake the Iron Throne. He recruits men and tries to build an army for Ageon to help him get what is his by birthright. Since the ‘Young Griff’ angle was completely removed from the show, Jon Connington had to be given a pass too.
As Game of Thrones will come to an end on May 19th this year, we will find out how the show ends. But the book fans have a long way ahead to know what happens next. GRRM seems to have written himself into a corner and there is no indication when his next book Winds of Winter will be out. Though Martin has confirmed he is working on the book, we can’t keep calm while we wait for this book which has been overdue for years!
Until that happens, let’s just wait for Game Of Thrones season 8. The wait is shorter, after all.
19 details you might have missed in Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 6
Game Of Thrones series finale finally aired and it had many scenes that shocked and surprised the fans. As usual the episode was filled with a lot details and callbacks. So let’s take a look at the details that you might have missed in Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 6: The Iron Throne
1. Changes in the opening credits
This season the opening credits have been changing to reflect the important events that have happened and we got to see that one last time in the series finale. In the previous episode the scorpions made an appearance on the gates and Daenerys destroyed them along with most of King’s Landing and that was reflected in the latest opening credits. The scorpions were gone and we could see a destroyed King’s Landing.
We saw the cracks on the map floor in the last episode floor and we could see the same in the opening credits and the best part was that the crack patterns were exactly the same.
In addition to that, the Lannister sigil was missing from the Throne Room as Daenerys successfully overthrew Cersei Lannister.
2. Daenerys made a reference to her season 6 speech to the Dothraki
After capturing King’s Landing, Daenerys spoke with her army and she told the Dothraki that they killed her enemies in iron suits, tore down their houses and gave her the Seven Kingdoms.
Back in season 6, she gave a speech to the Dothraki and here’s what she said:
“Every Khal who ever lived chose 3 blood riders to fight beside him and guard his way. But I am not a Khal. I will not choose three blood riders. I choose you all. I will ask more of you than any Khal has asked his Khalassar. Will you ride the wooden horses across the black salt sea? Will you kill my enemies in their Iron suits and tear down their stone houses? Will you give me the Seven Kingdoms, the gift Khal Drogo promised me before the Mother of Mountains?”
3. Break the Wheel
Daenerys asked her soldiers if they would break the wheel with her. This was a reference to her season 5 scene with Tyrion where she told him, “I am not going to stop the wheel. I am going to break the wheel.”
4. Did you bring any wine?
When Jon Snow came to visit Tyrion in his prison cell, his first question was, “Did you bring any wine?”
This is a callback to the scene in season 4 where Tyrion was thrown in the dungeon after being accused of poisoning King Joffrey. When Podrick came to visit him, he said that he had brought wine for Tyrion, but the soldiers took it from him. However, he managed to smuggle in some candles, quills, parchment, Duck sausage and some hard cheese.
It appears that he expected Jon to smuggle some food and wine for him.
5. Love is the death of duty
While speaking with Jon, Tyrion mentioned that love is more powerful than reason, while giving the example of his brother and Jon responded by saying, “Love is the death of duty.” A visibly impressed Tyrion Lannister asked Jon if he came up with those lines on his own and Jon clarified that it was Maester Aemon who had said this a long time ago.
Tyrion then said, “Duty is the death of love,” and it’s an important statement as Jon went on and killed Daenerys later in the episode and he had done the same thing with Ygritte, when he abandoned her so that he could reach Castle Black and inform everyone what the Wildlings were planning.
6. The parallel between Jon Snow and Ned Stark
Tyrion tried his best to explain why it was important for Jon to eliminate the biggest threat to the people. However, Jon wasn’t in the mood to listen as he was loyal to his queen and he started leaving. That’s when Tyrion mentioned Jon’s sisters. He told Jon that his sisters didn’t bend the knee and Daenerys would execute them in the future and that’s when Jon had a change of heart. That’s when he realized that he would have to kill Daenerys if he wanted to see his sisters alive.
This scene was similar to the scene between Varys and Ned Stark. Ned was rotting in the dungeons and he didn’t care about his life. Varys suggested that if he kept the information about Joffrey’s parentage a secret, he would be given a chance to take the Black and join the Night’s Watch but the honourable Ned Stark said no. That’s when Varys asked Ned, “What of your daughters’ life my lord?”
Both Ned and Jon took tough decisions to make sure that their family survived.
7. Daenerys’ vision
Back in season 2, Daenerys had a vision where she was inside the destroyed Throne Room in the Red Keep and she started walking towards the Iron Throne and before she could touch it, she turned away after hearing the sounds made by her Dragons.
In the latest episode we finally saw it happening and the scene was framed exactly in the same way as it was framed in her vision. However, there was one small change as she did touch the Iron Throne but at that moment Jon Snow entered the room and she walked away from the Iron Throne.
8. Daenerys made a reference to George R. R. Martin’s version of the Iron Throne
While speaking with Jon in the Throne Room, Daenerys spoke with Jon about the Iron Throne and how she imagined it to be when she was a kid. “I imagined a mountain of swords too high to climb.”
This was a reference to George R. R. Martin’s Iron Throne as he had a completely different image of it while writing the books. He even wrote a blog post about this topic, which was titled, The Real Iron Throne.
“It’s not the Iron Throne I see when I’m working on THE WINDS OF WINTER. It’s not the Iron Throne I want my readers to see. The way the throne is described in the books… HUGE, hulking, black and twisted, with the steep iron stairs in front, the high seat from which the king looks DOWN on everyone in the court… my throne is a hunched beast looming over the throne room, ugly and assymetric…”
Take a look at Martin’s version of the Iron Throne that was painted by Marc Simonetti.
9. The Azor Ahai prophecy
According to legends, Azor Ahai drove his sword through his wife, Nissa Nissa’s heart to create the Lightbringer, which was the Red Sword of Heroes. Many fans were expecting this to happen as they considered Jon Snow to be Azor Ahai and that would make Daenerys Targaryen Nissa Nissa.
However, the scene didn’t perfectly match the prophecy as Nissa Nissa’s death resulted in the creation of Lightbringer, which was used to defeat the darkness, while Daenerys’ death ended the darkness that would’ve spread across the world if Daenerys continued doing what she did in King’s Landing.
10. Howland Reed?
Tyrion’s trial was attended by lords and ladies from all over Westeros and there were a few unknown faces that we got to see. There’s speculation that one of those people might be Howland Reed.
We saw Howland Reed for the first time in Bran Stark’s vision at the Tower of Joy. Since then we haven’t seen him in in the show. Howland Reed is Jojen and Meera’s father and also the head of House Reed and he was one of the few people who knew the truth of Jon Snow’s parentage.
In the latest episode, one of the lords who was present at the meeting, wore a distinctive piece of cloth over his shoulder and it’s similar to the one that was worn by Howland Reed in Bran’s vision and even their swords seemed to be similar. However, there’s no confirmation about this and we can just hope that a cast or crew member from the Game Of Thrones team talks about this.
11. Piss off the edge of the World
Bran was chosen as the new King of Westeros and he decided that it would be best for Jon Snow to join the Night’s Watch. Tyrion, who was now the new Hand of the King, came to give this news to Jon and while he was leaving the prison cell, Jon said, “I don’t expect we’ll ever see each other again.”
“I wouldn’t be so sure. A few years as Hand of the King would make anyone want to piss off the edge of the world,” replied Tyrion.
In the second episode of season 1, a cheerful Tyrion told Cersei and Jaime that he wanted to stand on top of the Wall and piss off the edge of the World.
After he reached the Wall, he did piss from the top, while Jon was standing behind him.
12. What’s West of Westeros?
When Jon was saying goodbye to Sansa, Arya and Bran, he told Arya that she could come and visit him at Castle Black but Arya revealed that she wasn’t going back North. When Sansa asked her about her plans, she asked them, “What’s West of Westeros?”
When Jon said that he didn’t know, Arya replied, “No one knows. It’s where all the maps stop. That’s where I am going.”
In season 6 Arya was recovering at Lady Crane’s house after being stabbed by the Waif. When Lady Crane asked her where would she go next, she replied, “Essos is East and Westeros is West but what’s West of Westeros?” When Lady Crane said she didn’t know, Arya responded by saying, “Nobody does. It’s where all the maps stop.”
13. Ser Brienne of Tarth becomes the Lord Commander of the King’s Guard just like her ancestor Ser Duncan the Tall
Towards the end, we saw that Brienne had become the Lord Commander of the King’s Guard. A few years back George R. R. Martin had revealed that Ser Duncan the Tall was Brienne’s ancestor and it’s wonderful to see that just like her ancestor even she became the Lord Commander.
Another interesting thing is that Ser Duncan was the Lord Commander during the reign of King Aegon V Targaryen and Ser Brienne became the Lord Commander during the reign of Bran Stark, who’s related to another Aegon Targaryen.
14. A Song of Ice and Fire
Samwell presented Tyrion with a book on the War of the Five Kings and it was titled, “A Song of Ice and Fire,” which is the name of book series on which Game Of Thrones is based. Archmaester Ebrose wrote the book and we first found out about it in season 7, when the Archmaester told Samwell that he was working on a book that was titled, “A Chronicle of the Wars Following the Death of King Robert I”
When Ebrose asked Samwell, what name would he have given to the book, Sam replied by saying, “Possibly something a bit more poetic.”
It turns out the Archmaester listened to Sam and gave the book a poetic title or maybe it was Samwell who suggested the title.
15. Jackass and Honeycomb
Over the years Tyrion has tried to complete his Jackass and Honeycomb joke a number of times and not once did he get a chance to finish it. He first mentioned it in season 1, when he was in the Vale.
He was in Meereen when he mentioned it the 2nd time.
In the latest episode, he started the joke for the third time and the scene cut away immediately and now we will never find out about the joke.
16. Arya sailing West mirrors her scene from season 4
Towards the end, we saw Arya sailing West and the scene perfectly mirrors her scene from season 4 finale, where she’s sailing to the East.
17. Sansa’s crown
Throughout the series we have seen Sansa trying to replicate Cersei’s style and it represented how she was learning from Cersei and we got one last example of it as the crown that was placed on Sansa’s head was similar to the crown we saw after Cersei became the Queen.
18. Parallels between the first and last scene of the series
The show ends with Jon going North of the Wall with Tormund and other Wildlings. The scene was shot in the same way the pilot episode was shot.
Even the part where they went past the Wall was filmed in the same way.
19. The parallel between Jon Snow and Frodo Baggins
George R. R. Martin has said many times that he has been influenced by The Lord of the Rings and we can those influences in the show as well. In The Lord of the Rings, Frodo, who’s the main character decides to sail away to the Undying Lands in the end and we saw Jon Snow doing something similar when he went past the Wall, leaving his home behind.

Game of Thrones finally gave us a ‘bittersweet’ ending in the series finale
Game of Thrones finally ended amid a number of tears and fan theories. We all definitely didn’t see this episode like a total ‘bittersweet’ ending coming through. Though many fans complained about the last episode especially with the sudden turn of the character arc of many of their favourite characters, we couldn’t have expected Game of Thrones to end in a different fashion.
In this post, we talk about the ending of Game of Thrones and how the showrunners managed to uphold the ‘sweet’ amid the ‘bittersweet’ ending and a major death in this episode. What follows is a bunch of spoilers from the latest episode, so you’ve been warned before you proceed!
MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD!!!
Game of Thrones Season 8 episode 6 opens up with the aftermath of the battle of King’s Landing in the previous episode ‘The Bells’. As we see Jon, Davos, and Tyrion taking a walk through the ruins of the capital, we also witness Unsullied execute the prisoners of war. This leads us to Daenerys who is showing the true Targaryen traits of ‘Fire and Blood’ and is still willing to liberate other kingdoms in Westeros in her speech to her armies. Tyrion – who has now been taken prisoner requests Jon Snow to do what is in the best interest of the realm and suggests ending the terror.
Though we initially think, Jon will be firm on his decision of following his queen yet his honour demands him to execute Daenerys, ensuring the safety of Westeros. Though one may find Daenerys’ death challenging to watch, the best part here was the melting of the Iron Throne by dragon-fire. The Iron Throne as the chronicles suggested was forged with dragon-fire, yet watching it melt away in flames was truly poetic. After Drogon flies away with Daenerys Targaryen’s corpse, we see a time jump, leading to the meeting in the Dragonpit and discussing the future of the realm after the last war.
The council decides to vote for ‘Bran the Broken’ as its one true ruler, however, the North is declared as an independent kingdom. Jon Snow is sent to the Wall, ensuring his safety where he reunites with Ghost and Tormund Giantsbane. Another time jump shows us Ser Brienne of Tarth – the new Lord Commander of the King’s Guard filling up the pages of the White Book with the last honourable deeds of Ser Jaime Lannister. A small council meeting is held where Sam who now is the Grand Maester presents the work of Archmaester Ebrose, which is titled, ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ and King Bran decides to find Drogon’s location. He then leaves the room for the council members.
In the end, we see Arya Stark sailing West of Westeros, Jon leading the Wildlings back to their homeland and Sansa Stark being declared the ‘Queen in the North’.
Yet, the series finale manages to uphold the sweet part in the bittersweet ending by showing us how the terrors of every war need to come to an end. Maybe most of us expected Jon or Daenerys or both as the ruler(s) of the Seven Kingdoms yet ‘the wheel’ needed to be broken in the end with the events that followed Robert’s Rebellion. Westeros deserved a much-awaited peace and prosperity from all the horrors of wars and the monarchy of one king after the other. Westeros, in the end, gets a democratic rule – where lords and ladies get to decide who rules over them. This, in my view, is the best possible ending for Game of Thrones at this point in the series when we’ve seen how the common folks suffer the spoils of war.
Lastly, talking about Jon and Daenerys and their love never coming to terms, this wasn’t going to be the case after Dany underwent such a bend in her character that there was no turning back. She had to die in order to ensure the fulfilment of her dream of breaking the wheel. Jon Snow, on the other hand, was meant to remain in the North – either by being King in the North or by joining the Night’s Watch. But, he being the King would again force him into the dilemma of choosing sides and taking even tougher decisions – which would again be something he would never want.
So, this was my take on the ‘bittersweet’ ending of Game of Thrones. What about you? How satisfying was the final episode of Game of Thrones for you? Tell us in the comments.
The best and worst moments from Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 5
The penultimate episode of Season 8 is out and the episode was a mixed bag. With only one more episode to go and a lot of ground to cover, the episode seemed rushed. And well, more people died in the Battle of the King’s Landing that they died in the Battle of Winterfell against the Night King and his army.
Here are some of the best and the worst moments from the fifth episode.
The Best Moments of Episode 5
Game over for Lord Varys
Lord Varys was a proper player. Lesser men and women fought for the Iron Throne and Varys served them all. But his loyalty was always to the realm. So, when he predicts Daenerys’ madness and comes to know of Jon’s true parentage, he is quick to shift his loyalties to Jon and he tries to convince Jon to press for his claim. Daenerys soon finds this out from Tyrion. And just as expected, sentences Varys to die, burning him with dragonfire.
Varys is sitting in his chambers writing a letter to someone about Jon’s true parentage. But he quickly senses that his game is up. He burns the letter, removes his ring and is ready when the Unsullied come for him. As he stands before Daenerys, he looks into Tyrion’s eyes and says, “I hope I deserve this”. Then adds, “I hope I am wrong”. Moments later, Drogon breathes fire. In her defence, Daenerys had warned him once, “If you betray me, I’ll burn you alive”.
Tyrion returning the favor to Jaime
Once upon a time, Tyrion, a prisoner marked for death in the Red Keep dungeons, was freed by Jaime at great risk. In the fifth episode of Season 8, Tyrion got the chance to return the favor. He sets Jaime free and asks him to go to King’s Landing and save Cersei. As the two brothers hug each other, it was a poignant moment reminiscent of the time when the two had hugged earlier when Tyrion was running away from the Red Keep.
Daenerys the Mad Queen
It was absolutely shocking to see Daenerys’ first look in the episode. She looked paler, her hair were in disarray, and her eyes were sunken. And we also know that she hadn’t been eating all that well! The impending madness is down on her. “Every time a Targaryen is born, God flips a coin”, it is said. Daenerys looked like she was different. But now, she is proving worthy to be called the daughter of the Mad King.
The much-awaited showdown between The Hound and The Mountain finally happened in episode 5. And everybody was left wondering what exactly Qyburn did to Ser Gregor. As Sandor’s sword cuts through Gregor’s armor and pierces his belly and the sword comes out at the back, The Mountain simply takes out the bloody sword and tosses it aside. He refuses to die by something as commonplace as being stabbed. One can’t help but wonder if he should have been sent North to fight the Night King and it would all have been so much easier.
Daenerys and Drogon on fire!
Daenerys is again riding Drogon at the start of the battle, and this time the two are prepared for the Scorpions on the Greyjoy fleet! Last time she rode out from the clouds, Euron was waiting with loaded Scorpions and Rhaegal ended up crashing into the sea. But this time, Dany and Drogon are on fire, literally, and the Scorpions are no match for them as they dodge arrows and go straight for the fleet, destroying it real quick!
Jaime meets Cersei – one last time
An injured Jaime makes his way inside the Red Keep and finds Cersei. The moment when an alone and defeated Cersei spots Jaime is so beautifully captured. Cersei got a lot of hate on the show, but in those final moments, all you can see is a vulnerable and helpless woman, wanting to save her unborn child. Lena Headey has poured her heart into the scene and for a moment you feel sorry for Cersei. As she tells Jaime that she doesn’t want their child to die, Jaime is equally helpless. Rocks block all the exits and outside Drogon is creating havoc burning down everything.
The Worst Moments of Episode 6
The Golden Company – why were they even introduced?
The introduction of the Golden Company, a troop of the best sellswords money can buy, must go down in history as a cameo performed by the largest number of people on any show ever! And what was all that hype about Harry Strickland, the captain of the Golden Company? He had screentime of what, 70 seconds? And a very unimpressive death to top all the pointlessness. Times like these, one should thank God that they did not bring the elephants!
Jaime and Euron fight it out
So ever since Jaime lost his sword hand, we knew he was a mere shadow of the man he was earlier. And his sword practice with Bronn established this further. We could handle watching Jaime cut down witless wights. But Jaime killing Euron in single combat, single-handedly (excuse the pun!) was a bit too much to take. And Euron was a seasoned warrior! But Jaime manages to fatally wound him and walk off to look for Cersei.
Okay, we get it. Daenerys is going crazy and is becoming too ruthless for her own good. We get it that Jon AKA Aegon Targaryen can prove to be a much better ruler. We did not need over 30 minutes of Daenerys burning down everything just to get the point. The only thing missing in the carnage was Daenerys shouting “Burn them all!”
Arya, just being there
Arya came to the King’s Landing for killing Cersei but ended up being a POV character who notices death and destruction everywhere. That is literally all Arya did in the episode – look around at people being burned and buildings collapsing and a good deal of running. Finally, she rides away from the ashes and ruins on horseback.
With only one more episode to go, I wonder how they will be able to wrap up all the subplots. In all probability, they won’t. But I do hope we get an ending that is worth the wait and all the emotional investment.
