This Week's "Game Of Thrones" Was Basically All About Sisters Taking Over

And people are here for it. *SPOILERS for Season 6, Episode 4*

Posted on

For everyone who's seen this week's episode of Game of Thrones, "Book of the Stranger", you'll probably agree it was pretty damn epic.

"Hey, don't mind me, I'm just gonna burn these beardy dickheads to death, walk through a blazing inferno without getting burnt (again), and then take control of their armies, nbd." – Daenerys, probably

We even got to see a Stark reunion. Finally! After waiting like FIVE WHOLE DAMN SEASONS.

And it was beautiful.

But the main theme of the episode wasn't touching family get-togethers or even unburnt dragon queens – it was all about sisters being totally badass.

Sansa, Margaery, and Yara all had scenes where they basically had to shake their brothers and tell them to get their heads back in the damn game, and people were here for it.

On Game of Thrones yesterday, Sansa, Margaery, and Yara all had to tell their brothers to snap out of it. Sisters doing it for themselves

One thing I liked about yesterday's Game of Thrones: there are three (3) scenes where sisters take charge of their scared/broken brothers.

Great episode of Game of Thrones. Sisters are doing it for themselves! https://t.co/pXFItZOIIg

Queen Margaery is refusing to let the High Sparrow bring down her and her brother, Loras. She might have spent the last eight episodes shut in a dark cell, but she's not lost her fight.

Sadly that's more than we can say for Loras, who is basically completely broken.

Stay strong, Loras. You can do this. We don't want any more walks of atonement.

Theon is also pretty broken (but we knew that already), and Yara is pissed at him for betraying her when she risked everything to rescue him.

Fair enough, tbh.

Fair enough, tbh.

But at least Theon knows that she's the strong one, and that she should become the Iron Islands' first ever female ruler.

Euron's probably going to have something to say about that.

Euron's probably going to have something to say about that.

And Sansa? Well she's not got too much sympathy for Jon being "tired" (or murdered) – she had to be married to Ramsay Bolton. And now she's on a mission to reclaim the North.

Sansa's character development into a total badass > All other character development on Game of Thrones.

This is the dream team we never knew we needed.

OK so Jon didn't actually say this and instead just kinda nodded awkwardly, but we can pretend that's what he meant.

So hopefully what this means is we're going to get to see Jon and Sansa riding south together with an army of loyal Northerners and wildlings.

And together they're going to crush the Bolton army, free Rickon, and then Sansa's going to slit Ramsay's throat.

Please, it's time for the North to finally remember.
