Game of Thrones Finale Recap: 'Mother's Mercy'

Originally posted 06/14/2015 11:05PM

Six. Six Game of Thrones characters died in the season 5 finale, "Mother's Mercy." And one of those deaths marks arguably the show's greatest character loss yet (we felt every gut stab). Oh, and Arya (Maisie Williams) is blind. Shireen (Kerry Ingram) is still dead. Cersei (Lena Headey) just totally redefined a term for walking home after a hookup. And –

There is so much more. The finale followed two extreme, full-throttle episodes, and some may have expected Sunday's episode to take a breather and hit the brakes. Instead, Thrones continued the same relentless pace and emotional magnitude for its finale. Taken together, the last three hours of the season were incredible in their scope, ambition and narrative significance. While Thrones has been playing at a higher level in terms of its production values than the rest of television for years, I have a difficult time thinking of any series that – purely on a storytelling level – has had a triple-episode arc as intense as the past few weeks.

Game of Thrones Recap: 'The Dance of Dragons'

This is a Game of Thrones recap I have wanted to write for a long time.

Dany (Emilia Clarke) escaping the Daznak fighting pit while riding Drogon is one of the most exciting and climactic moments in George R.R. Martin's novels.

And the death of Shireen (Kerry Ingram) – which is not in the novels – is one of the most horrifying sequences in the show's history (and something I've been privately obsessing over since first hearing about it).

Thrones has always excelled at giving us moments of terror and triumph, but seldom have the highs and lows ever been so extreme, or come so quickly on top of each other, than in the past few episodes. We've had hugs and euphoria – Dany meets Tyrion (Peter Dinklage)! Jon's (Kit Harington) epic Hardhome battle! – and gut-punches and sadness – Ser Barristan (Ian McElhinney) dies, Sansa (Sophie Turner) is assaulted. And then tonight, in rapid succession, we witnessed the profoundly disturbing murder of an innocent child, and then saw the glory of a queen reclaiming her destiny – two scenes that could easily serve as the climax of an entire season on any other show, though it's tough to imagine any other series pulling them off as masterfully as Thrones did here (with the help of director David Nutter, who previously helmed season 3's Red Wedding episode).

I have a lot to say about the Shireen scene in particular. So I'm going to break my usual format and start with the scene I most want to talk about first, and then we'll recap the rest ...
