Game Of Thrones Season 6: 10 Things Fans Absolutely Don’t Want To See
We’re desensitised. We’re heartbroken. But we all have a breaking point.
Game of Thrones has never lied to us. It has never even tried to conceal what it truly is; a deep, epic, stunning, breaker of hearts. Right from the beginning it was taking our emotions and stamping on them, and amazingly that’s why we all tuned in. Main characters were dying in every direction and there was nothing we could do about it.
As the show has grown, it now faces a new challenge. It needs to consistently reach the same shock-factor levels, a very tricky task, particularly with such incredible hype enveloping it. I’m entirely at ease leaving the overarching story and grand finale in George R.R. Martin’s hands, as well as David Benioff and D.B. Weiss’, but there are still aspects of the show that shouldn’t be allowed to creep into Season 6.
It’s tough watching major character deaths, it’s not enjoyable watching huge sections of the show, but it all makes for powerful TV. However, there’s a limit to what we can all appreciate. Characters need time to run their course rather than rush to an early grave for some cheap drama. And despite being comfortable letting the ‘powers that be’ control the main story, there are certain things fans simply don’t want to see when Thrones returns in April.
