ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME!?!?
I can't believe what Rhaenys just did in episode 9. What a complete and total badass.
When she was originally fleeing out of the coronation room, I assumed she was running to some ship to get away or something. Then outta nowhere, Rhaenys says fuck you Hightowers (and fuck those peasants too).
What Rhaenys did at the end of the episode is one of the sickest things I could've imagined happening. Despite everything that has gone against her and numerous times her own family letting her down, she shows that her loyalty to the Targaryens will ALWAYS be greater than anything else. This fires me up so much because this is exactly how Game of Thrones should be. It's blood over EVERYTHING even when you get screwed by said blood.
This solidifies her legacy as the Queen that never was. This is BQE - Big Queen Energy.
I just can't believe that after being passed over for the Iron Throne, to losing both her children (side note: both "deaths" were caused by her own blood - Leanor faked his death), that Rhaenys still had that amount of loyalty to stand up to the falsity of Aegon's reign in the most aggressive and definitive manor.
Also, major FUCK YOU to Ser Criston Cole. He went from one of the most likeable characters in the show, to one of the worst REAL QUICK. I might write a whole separate blog about that piece of shit. And don't even get me started on that stupid shithead Larys. Dude's a wannabe Varys with a foot fetish worse than Rex Ryan.
I cannot wait to see what transpires next on the finale. Also, what the fuck. How are we only having one more episode in this season!? It better a two hour long fiasco because we have a LOT of drama to see unfold.
Again, I'm not one of those fans that reads into leaks or anything. That just ruins the show for me. But here's what I'm expecting or hoping to see in the finale:
Aemond and Daemon fight (maybe a dragon fight???)
Rhaenrya and Alicent Confrontation
Ser Criston Cole, Larys, Otto Hightower Dead
Rhaenyra and Daemon Crowned as King/Queen
I'm probably going to be dead wrong but that's how I'd like to see it unfold. If Aemond and Daemon fight, Aemond would appear to have the upper hand. He's younger and already years ahead of where he should be with his training. Daemon's been aging and previously lost to Ser Criston Cole in that tourney we saw in episode 1. Aemond's training with Ser Criston and appears to be a next level warrior.
Robbie, KFC, Clem, and Nick broke down everything from last night on Game Of Stools. Check it out below:
Now we'll wait to see what happens. I can't wait for next Sunday night.
