After eight seasons of war, wights, and weird familial relations...the whole issue of who got to sit on the Iron Throne was solved by...a committee?
...............and they nominated the guy with **zero** leadership experience?
There's a huge chance that you, like everyone else who's invested too much of their lives in a TV show about castles and zombie dragons, were too stressed during this scene to notice who was all present at this lil impromptu Electoral College situation...
So if you didn't notice or recognize this guy, don't worry: you aren't alone.
But one eagle-eyed fan did and realized instantly who it was: Robin Arryn!!!! And listen, not only was the Lord of the Eyrie, Defender of the Vale, and Warden of the East present and accounted for, but more importantly, he had also GROWN. UP.
YES. Your eyes are not deceiving you. While the rest of Westeros was busy fending off White Walkers and the Cersei situation...Robin Arryn was over in the Vale doing **this**.
King's Landing might be in ashes and Jon Snow has been banished from the kingdom, but HONESTLY NOT ALL HOPE IS LOST because our boy Robin Arryn is — and I cannot emphasize this enough — firebreathin' hot now.
It's almost enough to make you forget that this was the whiny kid who ran around tormenting Sansa at the Eyrie...
But honestly, I'd like to think **this** was the turning point for him.
In conclusion, the Game of Thrones finale was disappointing and honestly a little boring, but MAYBE IF WE'RE GOOD we'll get a sequel and it'll just be about our boi Sweetrobin (played by Lino Facioli) giving us more of these angles:
Oh and also: what is IN that Westerosi breastmilk??
