Game of Thrones season 5 left us shocked and amazed. Then again, so did seasons 4, 3, 2, and 1. This season’s finale alone left many of us wondering what we are going to do with ourselves as people! (You can read Alicia Lutes‘ recap of the finale here.)
Now, we could sing the praises of the world of Westeros all day, but let’s try and keep focused here.
