Every week, as I sit wide-eyed watching Game Of Thrones, I always find myself wishing the characters would break the fourth wall, Deadpool-style.
I wish someone would tell Cersei her hair looks stupid. I wish someone with a d*ck was like, “Yo Missandei, I have a d*ck and Grey Worm doesn’t. Sup?” But most of all, I wish Jon Snow would just scream at the top of his lungs: “Look everyone, I’m the god damn Prince Who Was Promised so everyone just needs to shut the hell up and keep their garbage opinions to themselves because I’m out here trying to lead us through the long night.” And the number one person he needs to tell that to is Sansa.
Sansa has been questioning his every single move at every single turn, and now that she’s got this letter from Jon, her criticisms of the King in the North are only going to become harsher, because you KNOW she is not having any of this whole ‘pledge our forces’ nonsense that Jon’s selling.
Cersei Lannister has pledged her forces to our cause, as has Daenerys Targaryen. And if we survive this war, I have pledged our forces to Daenerys at the rightful Queen of the Seven Kingdoms. We are both coming to organise the defence of the realm.
Jon Snow. Warden of the North.
As Conor McGreor said after the Floyd fight,”let me wobble back to me corner” and that’s essentially how Jon leads: he stumbles around and gets the shit kicked out of him, but ultimately, he wins the fight. Sansa needs to learn that sooner rather than later.
