Catching Up With the Game of Thrones Train

Tomorrow is the start of the last season of Game of Thrones. There are only six episodes in this final season and a lot of people, me included, are looking forward to finding out how everything will play out. I know that there are a lot of theories out there, but I prefer to just wait and see how it will all play out. I have my own theories but considering how I have not completely caught up on the show yet, I’m not sure if I have anything right.

Is it nuts that I want to see Jon and Daenerys jointly sitting on the Iron Throne and ruling together? I’m rooting for either one of them to eventually be the rightful heir to the throne but if they can rule together, that would be even better. I am also partial to the theory that the Night King is also related to them too and is also a Targaryen. I’d like to think that there is more to his story and that is how Jon and Dany would end up on the Iron Throne. It might be too much to ask, but it’s just my theory. Like Jon Snow, I know nothing. 

Unlike everyone, I was never a big fan of the show. I remember watching just a few episodes per season and just catching up via recaps online. Now that it’s the last season, I’ve started marathoning the previous seasons to catch up before it all ends. Thank goodness HBO has been helping me with that. I would have preferred streaming and binging on their app but for some reason, it’s exclusive to Sky subscribers, something that we do not have here in our area.

There’s something to be said about the full season binge that helps you to see the growth of the characters (and the actors) better. It was amazing to see how the younger actors grew up every season. It’s also more exciting to watch it this way – it’s getting me hyped up for the last season!

I think that in the meantime, I will be staying away from social media so that I won’t get updates on the latest season. I’m sure that people won’t be able to keep quiet about it and I would rather binge the entire season when it’s complete. It’ll be a challenge, considering all the Game of Thrones news will probably be everywhere but I’d like to enjoy it on one full day instead of waiting for what’s next every week. 

It’s amazing how the world of Game of Thrones was made and it’s sad to see it go. I don’t think that there is any other TV show that has made the effort in the level that this show has done to make a fantasy world come to life. Each season is like one super long movie that you wouldn’t mind watching. I’m looking forward to watching the spinoff that will be coming out. I have no idea what it would be about and when it will be on TV, but I am excited to see Toby Regbo be part of this world. I was a big fan when he was on Reign and I’ve enjoyed seeing him in The Last Kingdom. I’m curious about what role he will have in this new show, I can’t wait to see it!

Is anyone else out there watching the show? Will you watch per episode or binge everything at the end? I can’t wait to find out what you think!


  1. Hayy, ako `yung 1% who hasn't seen a single episode of GoT. Nagkakagulo kahapon ang mga friends ko sa FB because of it. :)

  2. It's not something you'd miss out on if you're not a fan of the genre naman. Personally I didn't have time to watch it regularly before but now that I've caught up I just want to make sure I finish it...then I'll read the books! :P
