After Sunday’s big Season 5 finale, fans will have to wait a full year for more “Game of Thrones” action. If the first four seasons are any indication, the HBO fantasy series will leave viewers reeling from more than few tantalizing cliff-hangers. So, what do fans want to see in episode 10, “Mother’s Mercy”?
Here are the moments viewers are excited for in every major storyline:
Cersei’s Walk Of Shame
It was Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) who gave the Faith and its leader, the High Sparrow (Jonathan Pryce), so much power in King’s Landing, but that did not stop the religious leader from imprisoning her for her own sins. The former queen faces a confession in the finale if she ever wants to get out of the dungeon. However, fans have known for a while that her confession will result in a penance walk for the vain Lannister family head. The scene, which will feature Cersei walking the city streets naked with her hair cut off, is one of the most anticipated scenes of the whole season. In the finale, fans will finally get to see the big moment.
Stannis Marches On Winterfell
Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane) has been holed up in Castle Black for most of Season 5, preparing to lead his army south to take Winterfell. After sacrificing his daughter (Kerry Ingram) in episode 9 to win the Lord of Light’s favor, there is nothing left for the aspiring king to do in the finale but make his move. Will he be able to overthrow the Boltons?
Jon Snow vs. The White Walkers
Now that Stannis is gone, Jon Snow and the Night’s Watch are alone at the wall, but, having brought the Wildlings to Westeros following the White Walker massacre, Jon will have to face some problems. Will there be a White Walker attack on the wall before the season is done? Will there be drama between the disgruntled rangers and the Wildlings? It will be up to Jon to keep the peace.
Daenerys Deals With The Sons Of The Harpy
After episode 9’s ambush during the games at the fighting pits, Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) will have to decide how to handle the Sons of the Harpy, the group of rebels who have been terrorizing Mereen all season. Will she use her dragons to restore order in the city? Perhaps she will enlist Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen) to handle the radical group, now that he seems to have won back her favor.
Arya Stark Becomes No One
Fans have not seen too much of Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) in Season 5, other than brief glimpses of her training to become a faceless man in Braavos. However, her tutelage might have to be put on hold now that Meryn Trant (Ian Beattie) is in town. The evil King’s Guard knight may have been responsible for Syrio Forel’s (Miltos Yerolemou) death and Arya always has her eye on revenge. Will she try to kill Trant in the finale?
