Kyle’s Choice

Tonight, the Game of Thrones series finale airs on HBO. Last week we lost several of the show’s main characters. Daenerys questioned Jon’s and Tyrion’s loyalty for sharing the information about Jon’s true lineage with others. Tyrion revealed that Varys was plotting against the queen, so she had him executed. Before the battle for Kings Landing began, Tyrion begged Daenerys to call off her attack if the people of King’s Landing rang the bell of surrender, and she reluctantly agreed. The next morning, the attack was executed flawlessly, and Daenerys used the blinding sun to take out the Iron Fleet and blow open the city gates. Meanwhile, Jon led the attack on the ground with what remained of the Unsullied and Dothraki armies. The Golden Company was on the run. They dropped their weapons, and the bells signaling surrender were rung. However, Daenerys saw the city that used to belong to her family and decided to burn Kings Landing to the ground, sentencing hundreds of thousands of incident civilians to a fiery death. When Grey Worm saw Daenerys burning the city, he took this as an opportunity to get revenge for Missandei’s execution and spurred on a riot on the ground, causing the army to start massacring and assaulting the unarmed soldiers and civilians. Jon just looked on in horror.

Meanwhile, Arya and The Hound made their way to the city, each with a different target. The Hound wanted to kill his brother, while Arya was after Cersei. However, The Hound convinced Arya that her suicide mission was not worth it, so she decided to head back but hit obstacle after obstacle as the city crashed and burned. Elsewhere, the big showdown between The Hound and The Mountain ultimately resulted in both of them falling to a fiery death. Jaime had also made his way to the city, looking for Cersei. After being severely wounded in a fight with Euron on the shore, he stumbled up to the Red Keep, where he was reunited with his one true love/twin sister. However, as the pair tried to escape, they were trapped and crushed by falling rubble in the caverns below the city.

So how will this all end tonight? Daenerys has become the spitting image of her father, the Mad King. Tyrion and Jon must now realize that she is not the right person to sit on the throne, and something must be done to stop her. However, she still has her army and a fire-breathing dragon. What army does Jon have behind him? Will the Wildlings return to help Jon? Will Jon defeat Daenerys and claim the throne under his real name? Or else who will ultimately sit atop the throne? I can’t wait to see how this all ends tonight!

Don’t miss the 80-minute series finale tonight on HBO at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Good Girls, Supergirl, Killing Eve, A Discovery of Witches, and Barry.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/17/19

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Phoebe’s Choice

After the deep space time travel adventures of last year, there have been some lineup changes on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which made its season six debut last week. After all, both Coulson and at least one version of Fitz are dead for starters. The team is overall split into two as well, with a space unit and the rest of the team guarding over Earth. Daisey & Jemma are running a skeleton crew on their deep space search for the cryogenically frozen Fitz. They have been off Earth for a half year and fear Fitz could be dead, as the ship he was stored on was split in half.

Back on the third rock from the sun, there was an inter-dimensional breach by a guy who was able to shoot down May’s aircraft. His friend, who was also crossing into our dimension, got trapped in concrete. Mack was the new director, but he was guided by an AI that projected to him as Hologram Coulson. May introduced Mack to her friend Dr. Marcus Benson to try to recruit him to head a new S.H.I.E.L.D. academy. They also needed better science expertise with Jemma & Fitz off world. In space, Jemma found the origin of Fitz’s cryogenic pod that they found, broken in the wreckage of his ship. She wanted to go straight there, but the rest of the crew was homesick and wanted to at least regroup first. They were attacked by much larger ships though, and Jemma seized upon the moment to enter the co-ordinates of where she believed Fitz went.

From the guy who got frozen in concrete, the people on Earth got the co-ordinates of where the extra-dimensional travelers leader, Sarge, was going to come through. He croaked a cryptic warning before finally dying also. They got to the museum where the breach was about to occur, but the invaders destroyed the building and a whole Fury Road-styled 18-wheel truck blasted through a portal and almost killed May. The big reveal: this Sarge guy was a Coulson lookalike with no memory or knowledge of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Whut?? Crai. So Coulson died, but dude came back as two versions of himself anyway?? You go, girl. No, but seriously, this show is always fun, and this season is going to be a quicker ride than we are used to – it is only a 13-episode summer run. So far it seems as promising as any of the other marvelous recent seasons. MCU marches forth!

Oh, and our last reveal of last episode was that Fitz is indeed alive and working in some workshop with aliens, speaking in their language.

On tonight’s episode, “Window of Opportunity,” while Fitz and Enoch struggle in space, Sarge and his team move forward with their mysterious mission on Earth.

See Fitz’s struggle tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Doom Patrol. There’s only two more episodes of that, so #ketchup. Also, check out The New Negroes on Comedy Central, featuring Open Mike Eagle, who I interviewed a few summers ago!
