It’s hard to believe that we’re at the end of another Game of Thrones season and although it’s never easy having to wait almost a full year between seasons, at least the sixth season ended in spectacular fashion with its finale, “The Winds of Winter.” Game of Thrones finales have been a mixed bag so far, as they’re often overly concerned with setting up plots for the next season and also have the misfortune of following episode nine, which are typically the most action-packed, thrilling parts of every season. “The Winds of Winter” bucks this trend by delivering a number of shocking moments, with about half a dozen major characters getting killed off in the process. That being said, “The Winds of Winter” is still a finale and it spends a significant amount of time on set-up for season seven. Here are the 10 most pressing questions we have heading into the next year of Game of Thrones.
10. Do The Citizens of King’s Landing Know That Cersei Blew Up The Sept?
Cersei performed one of the most spectuacular power plays in Game of Thrones history, blowing up all of her enemies (in King’s Landing anyway) in one fell swoop. Although her actions cost her the life of her only remaining son Tommen, Cersei probably isn’t too upset considering she’s now the defacto Queen of the Seven Kingdoms once again. Although Cersei’s coronation was stunning in its dread-inducing effectiveness, it felt odd to see Cersei reclaim the throne so easily. She’s not exactly popular with the people of King’s Landing and isn’t it obvious that she was the one behind the destruction of the Sept of Baelor? Questionable exectuion aside, at least Cersei probably won’t be sitting on the throne for long given how many enemies are headed her way.
