There has been an avalanche of stuff we have been reading about the ‘GOT’ hangover. The finale is over, Dany and Jon have rocked the boat, Tyrion is turning into shades of grey, Cersei and Jaime have parted ways for now, Viserion spits icy fire , Bran I still staring at walls, and Lord Baelish has been casually punched in the throat by Arya’s knife. The finale was a roller coaster and was a good watch, which is why all of us are showing withdrawal symptoms.

Anyways, as you might know, that a BTS series has been launched by HBO. It’s a 7 part series which will show you exactly how the episodes were shot. Yeah sure, that sounds exciting, but about our dose of high end drama? The forbidden sex, with a murder involved, and a war waiting to start in the background. We all were accustomed to that setting. The answer to that hangover lies in the mysterious, cool new trailer that’s been going viral and is titled ‘Westeros’. It’s a fan made trailer and shows ‘Game Of Thrones’ in a modern day setting.  It gives a glimpse of Westeros would look like, if it was here in 2017.

Sky scrapers have replaced castles, sniper and missiles have replaced weapons, and modern day cars have replaced horses. The trailer even shows a street named Targaryen Square.

Fans are begging for producers to actually convert this video into a full fledged series because it looks so dank and cool.

I want this to be real so badly!! WESTEROS: Modern day GOT #FanMade

If this turns into a real series, it is safe to assume that fans will have a double visual treat.

There were numerous theories, many predictions, countless bets and so many calculations about that one major death of the finale. However, we were given the ultimate satisfaction after watching the death of Lord Baelish by the hands of Arya Stark. The wonderful tale of his death starts spinning when he tries to maliciously make Sansa believe that she is forever going to be threatened by Arya. The best part about this scene is that Sansa just allows herself to be manipulated.

Later, Arya is summoned in front of every one and the whole scene makes you believe that goddamn Lady of Winterfell has fallen prey to his deceitful malicious ways. You have got to give it to Baelish for him so convincingly conniving, that you adore hating his guts. So he is as usual smiling in a corner when Sansa starts throwing accusations in the air , all this while looking at Arya, until, she casually takes his name. You are baffled, Baelish is surpised, a look that is so not him. What I really liked about his death was the fact that there was no catharsis for us. We don’t really fee l sorry for him, he had to die, it was estimated that Arya will do it and so it happened.

The Stark sisters prove to you that blood is indeed thicker than malice and manipulation and honestly, Sansa owed this to herself and everyone. We are totally digging the new version of an evolved Sansa and hope she gets to kill someone herself (Theon?), before the series ends.
