This was not a hard week to pick a winner.
This week’s winner is Jon Snow.
Not because Jon did anything particularly awesome. But because Jon. Literally. Won. The. Game. Of. Thrones.
Hear me out, we saw Jon elected to Lord Commander of The Night’s Watch, at Samm’s behest, after turning Stannis down for being legitimized as the Lord of Winterfell.
In an election. To be Pope of the Night’s Watch. Do they burn white smoke at the wall? Habemus Jon Snow!
Anyway, there isn’t much else to say about this, because when someone literally wins, there’s not a lot to say about that.
And so Jon Snow, The Bastard of Winterfell, and now Lord Commander of The Night’s Watch, congratulations on your ACTUAL LITERAL WIN this week.
Runner Up: Ser Barristan! Who gave Dany some great advice, that she carried out in the most boneheaded way possible. Which is, just, so Dany, am I right?
Also Drogon who showed up and was awesome.
Missandei And Grey Worm Watch
They were both around but did not interact. In my head canon, they held hands while they watched Drogon fly away and shared a meaningful look about it.
