Game of Thrones back at the start – meme

Spoiler alert for season 6!

After watching the finale, I had a déjà vu. It seems like a lot of the plot developments have been working towards a restoration of the status quo in the first seasons. There’s a new king in the north, again, there’s a Lannister on the throne in full power, the Queen of Dragons Dany controls an army of Dothraki and Tyrion is the hand of a king/queen again. Winter is still coming and is closer than ever it seems… Just like it was in the first seasons!

Game of Thrones after season 6 = back to basics

But there’s more! The only element worth calling a manifestation of “fire” is gone from the North again. Just like it used to be and that fact makes it a duel between freeze and heat again.

Did you notice any other similarities? Or do you have any other thoughts?
