TV Tuesday (3)

Posted August 29, 2017 by Rowena in Features | 4 Comments

There will only be one show talked about this week. I’m all caught up on all of my shows but this week’s post will be all about Game of Throne’s season 7 finale so like previous weeks, this post is going to be filled to the brim with spoilers so stay away if you haven’t watched the finale. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
This is what I looked like throughout the whole episodes (both times I watched it):
I freaking loved this episode. There was so much action, angst, and just…stuff going on that I couldn’t watch it fast enough. If I had a gripe, it would have been the Theon stuff. Sure, his character needs that redemption but since I don’t care for his character, I didn’t need it. The other gripe that I thought about would be…where was Gendry? I missed him. Anyway, let’s get on with it…

The meeting at Kings Landing

Alright, so I’ve been really curious about how this was going to turn out. All of the big players in one venue for the first time. It’s one of those things where once again, everyone in attendance hates each other but they really need to put their differences aside and discuss more important matters. Matters of life and death. I had a feeling that Cersei was going to do exactly what she did and I was so happy to see that Jamie did exactly what I wanted him to do. The right thing. I honestly think that his redemption arc ends with him killing the Mad Queen. And I think Cersei is the Mad Queen, not Daenerys. I think he’s going to be the one that kills Cersei or will play an important part in killing Cersei for the better of the realm. I love Jon Snow. Every week before an episode begins, I don’t think that I could love this man more than I do but I’m always wrong because I loved Jon more this week than any other week and that’s big. I loved when he said that he couldn’t serve two queens and he’s already pledged himself to his Queen Daenerys. Goodness, he’s Ned Stark through and through. <3

Starks vs. Little Finger

HA!!! Take that to everyone who doubted Arya! The minute that Arya walks into the great hall and Bran is sitting next to Sansa, I knew that they were all in it together. I knew that what I thought was right…was right dammit. LOL. Oh man, I love being right. Arya is right. Being Lady of Winterfell suits Sansa. If I was wrong about anything this season, it was her. I haven’t liked her character since the beginning and for some reason, I thought she’d continue to disappoint me but she’s been surprising me at every turn. I thought for sure that Cersei would have influenced her a lot more than she did and while you can see that Sansa has learned a lot from Cersei, at her core, she’s a Stark…and Stark’s are the good guys. She hit it on the nose when she said, “I’m a slow learner, it’s true. But I learn.” She’s grown into such a strong woman and an even stronger leader and I know that her parents would be proud of the woman she’s grown up to be. It was a great scene, seeing the Stark pack come together to survive. I would say RIP Littlefinger but I don’t want him to rest peacefully. He doesn’t deserve it, in my eyes.

Jamie and Cersei

Am I the only person that took Jamie’s, “I don’t believe you” to Cersei as he doesn’t believe she’s pregnant and he’s done with her trying to manipulate him by using their children? There’s nobody left. It’s just the two of them and then she holds her stomach and he’s like, “Nope. You ain’t fooling me this time.” Like I said earlier, I saw the Cersei shenanigans going down but I’m super glad that Jamie ain’t going to stick around and be her little lap dog. You go and keep your word, Jamie.

Sam and Bran

I can get behind a Bran and Sam bromance. I’m glad to see that Bran and Sam talked because now they know the truth….and it’s going to be interesting seeing them tell Jon. I’m sure that some time will be spent on the angst of Daenerys losing the right to the throne though I’m sure that Jon will give her the throne since he doesn’t want it. Still, these two together will be good for the realm. Bran sees everything and so he’ll help Sam record everything in the book that they’re going to write together…to tell the story of the song of fire and ice.


The coming together of Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen was inevitable. They’ve got some big time feelings for each other and everyone can see it. Everyone knows it. They acted on those feelings this week and holy cow. The internet exploded with yays and some nays and I’m here for it. They’ve gone through such different journeys, such separate journeys that have brought them together but I’ve wanted these two to come together in the exact way that they’ve come together since I started liking both of them back in season 1. Sure, I could have done without them being related but their union makes sense in the world that GRRM created for these characters and the love that is strong and true between these guys is such a sight to behold. I love it. I’m pretty anxious to see what next season has in store for these two. My theory is that they will find out the truth but will struggle with different things. Dany will struggle with her purpose since Jon will be the rightful heir to everything she’s fighting for. She will struggle with his new title and will wonder if she’ll have to fight him before Cersei. I think his struggle will be coming to grips with who he truly is. He won’t feel like a true Stark. He won’t feel like a true Targaryen..and I think him telling Theon this week that he’s a Greyjoy AND he’s a Stark was foreshadowing of his struggle next season. He will struggle with Ned’s lies and won’t realize that Ned was protecting him with those lies at first. He will bend the knee to Daenerys in the end because his love for her will be far more important to him than the throne and then he’s going to die a noble death and Dany will raise their baby dragons on the throne after Jamie kills Cersei. LOL.

The Wall has Fallen

The wall falling marks that winter is freaking here. That big ass white walker army FINALLY made it to the wall after walking there all season long. We also see ice dragon Viserion in action and whoa. Just whoa. The end is near guys…and I can’t even deal with all of it. The end. The war. The baby dragons. The ice dragon. I can’t deal with any of it. Still, this season was freaking great.
What did you think of this season? What did you think of the finale? What do you see happening next season? What do you WANT to happen next season? Let’s talk!

TV Tuesday (2)

I only watched one TV show this week and I watched that one show every single day, some episodes, multiple times and if you guess that I watched Game of Thrones then you were right because…
gif credits
Lots of stuff have gone down and I’m here for it all. Every single bit of it. I’m going to go through each section of the episode and just talk through them all. There will be hella spoilers in this post so beware!
gif credits
Sansa & Arya: I’m seeing a lot of hate for Arya online and while I can understand it, I don’t share it. You see, to me, the Stark sisters are smart. They’re wily and I have every faith that Arya and Sansa are working either together or apart on playing Littlefinger. They’re “fighting” with each other because Littlefinger is watching them. I think that Arya was playing her lying game on Sansa this past week because come on…
gif credits
Arya never wanted or wondered what it would be like to dress up as the Lady of Winterfell. She never wanted to be a Lady. She’s always, always, always wanted to be a knight. To be a Lord. To fight…and then when she hands Sansa the dagger, after playing her game, the pointy end is pointed toward Arya, not Sansa. She never planned on killing her sister. She’s going to kill bitch ass, Peter Baelish. Sansa has come a long way and even though she’s never been my favorite Stark, I do respect her. I don’t think she’s going to do anything shady where Arya is concerned. She’s putting on the same show, for Baelish’s sake. Why do I think that? Because she sent Brienne away. The person who took a vow to protect her at all costs, against anyone who would wish her harm…she doesn’t want anyone to harm Arya because, at the end of the day, she’s family and Starks aren’t about that business. So to everyone spitting harm on Arya and comparing her to Ramsey fucking Bolton and fucking Joffrey?
gif credits gif credits
Jon’s Suicide Squad and the snow battle: I was talking about Jon’s suicide squad with Ames last week and she said, “They’re the team that I didn’t know I wanted” and that is the freaking truth. What a way to bring together some fabulous characters for a single purpose. Sure, that purpose is pretty dumb but I’m here for these guys battling together and bonding and then hopefully uniting against Cersei. I’m not even going to lie, when Jon turns toward the approaching army, standing his ground and then raising his sword to fight?
gif credits
My ovaries exploded because, hot damn, Jon Snow is full battle armor and just all around yumminess? I’m so here for it! I don’t even care that he has to keep getting saved, his heart is so big and his desire to protect his people??? I freaking love it. My heart hurt so much after Viserion goes down and even though I knew it was going to happen, that didn’t stop me from mourning the hell out of the dragon. Gah. I can’t even deal with the Night King pulling his ass out of the water and turning him. That’s going to be hella drama once Daenerys and Jon find out. But this was me when he went down:
gif credits
I’m still so sad. But??? Someone on Tumblr posted, “There are only two dragons left so the possibility that Jon will ride the dragon named after his biological father???” That shit got me so shook. I’m equal parts excited and sad that everything is finally happening because we’ve been waiting so long for this but I’m also sad that it’s almost over. What a ride it’s been…it’s still not over yet so let me cut it out.
gif credits
Jon Snow & Daenerys Targaryen: I’m a romance lover at heart so I have been shipping the shit out of Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen since season 1, even though it took them 7 years to meet. They’ve only known each other for a handful of episodes and they’re already important to each other. They already have hella feelings for each other and I’m reading all of the haters of the Jonerys ship that their romance is not believable because it’s rushed but I don’t give a damn. Their romance isn’t a slow burn romance. Their romance is a fated lovers one. They’re meant to be together. The author of the books said that them coming together is the point of the entire series. They are the chosen ones to lead the living army against the dead one…and I’ll be sitting over here, waiting for them to finally acknowledge their feelings for each other. Sure, everything is happening pretty fast between them but I believe it because I believe in it. I believe that you can fall in love with someone quickly and I see their feelings for each other the same way everyone else does. All of the foreshadowings on Jon and Dany’s children was not missed. She can’t have children? Jon will give her some. Ha! I have some theories on Cersei, her fate and what is going on where she’s at but that’s for next week…this post is long enough. Are you watching Game of Thrones? Are you as obsessed with it as I am? How are you liking this season? Are you ready for the season finale? (I’m not)

TV Tuesday (1)

Posted August 15, 2017 by Rowena in Features | 0 Comments

I watch a lot of TV. Like, a lot a lot of TV. I also have a lot of opinions about the shows that I’m watching so each week (when I remember to do them), I’ll be talking about a few of the shows that I’m watching.

What I Watched

Game of Thrones: Out of all of the shows that I watch, I think I’m most obsessed with this one. Everything that we’ve been working toward from Season 1 is finally happening and each week, it’s non-stop for me. I’m loving this season so much. I’m loving the chemistry between Jon and Daenerys, I’m loving the Stark reunions and I’m anxious for Little Finger to be offed already. There’s so much goodness going on right now that I don’t even know where to start. I loved this week’s episode too. So good!

Animal Kingdom: A couple of weeks ago, I was watching old clips of the show, Felicity. I was in my Ben and Felicity feels and Animal Kingdom came onto my radar because that’s the show that Scott Speedman is currently working on so I watched the first episode and I’ve been hooked ever since. It took me a few days to watch the entire season 1 and then catch up to where the show is now and every week since I’ve been hooked to my seat. This show is addicting and it’s bad and it reminds me of Sons of Anarchy and I love it. I started this show because of Scott Speedman but I stayed for Ben Robson. Holy hot damn, that man is beautiful.

Younger: This show is always all of the Tumblrs that I follow so I wanted to check it out. I’ve been shipping Nico Tortorella’s character with Hilary Duff’s character since before I started watching the show. LOL. Now that I’m watching the show…I’m still shipping them and I don’t give a damn that it’s not the preferred ship. I don’t even care that Hilary Duff’s character is besties with Nico’s character’s ex-girlfriend and that her hooking up with him is considered against girl code. I’m just sitting over here, waving my Josh and Kelsey flag, waiting for them to fall in love. Ha!
gif credits
Suits: I’ve got to be honest, I love this show. I’ve been a huge supporter of this show since the first season but I have been completely underwhelmed by this season. I’m just not as amped up as I used to be with these characters. The whole Donna and Harvey thing is pissing me off because dude…Harvey and the therapist came out of freaking nowhere. You can’t tell me that he isn’t in love with Donna because he damn well is and the way that he’s been acting all season long makes me want to punch him at every turn. Mike’s character, ugh. Rachel hit it on the nose this week when she said, “What does your word even mean anymore?” Get your shit together, Mike! Then there’s Louis. Freaking Louis. He’s in a bad way and it’s painful to watch him every week lose his shit over the stupidest of things. I just need this show to get better already.

What TV Shows are you watching and loving (or hating) this week? Do you watch any of the shows that I watch? What did you think of this week’s episodes of any of the shows listed above?
