Here’s an un-spoiled recap of the ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 5 finale

in Apolitical by

Here’s a spoiler-free recap of last night’s shocking Season 5 finale of Game of Thrones. As per usual, George R.R. Martin’s brain child was plenty full of murderous jaw-dropping shockers.

If you pick five Game of Thrones characters who were still living before Sunday night, chances are one of them is now dead. Google the series if you want spoilers, but you won’t get them here.

Just a little tease …

Gianluca Fiore has an interesting conspiracy theory.

“I’m starting to believe the hidden purpose of #GoT is to kill all characters and then its viewers too.”

There’s this guy, looking for the ultimate plot twist. Go frozen zombies, go!

“I’m rooting for the White Walkers now, I hope they kill everybody.”

Even Mario Lopez (hunky L.C. Slater in Saved by the Bell, duh) is rooting for the White Walkers to up and kill everyone.

“Really #GoT?!? Wow… Uproar at Casa Lopez right now. At this point I’m rooting for the White Walkers to just kill everyone in Westerns.”

Then there’s this interesting theory.

‪#GameOfThrones#GoT is going to end with M. Night Shyamalan directing the series finale Ned Stark wakes up & says “I had the craziest dream”

Some people may be mysteriously missing from their jobs today.

“Guessing my boss won’t be happy if I take a bereavement day tomorrow for a fictional character.”

There’s also this appropriate graphic describing fans’ feelings this somber Monday.

But don’t worry, if you haven’t yet caught the Season 5 finale, there were some bright spots.

My favorite part of ‪#GoT last night was when nobody died. During all of the 12 seconds that that lasted.

And after all, isn’t half the point of Game of Thrones to kill off all the seemingly important characters?

Given GRRM’s liberal death-dealing, for those of us yet to watch series 4 of ‪#GoT, the very fact there *is* a series 5 is a spoiler.

Now raise your chalice to several months of waiting for the next season’s blood bath.
