Qué Será Será

Mom’s favorite song. Dad’s favorite actress. Bye Doris Day.

Over at the Red Keep things got pretty hot. Cersei & Jaime together forever. The witch was right. Only 3 children. And. My sources tell me that the pale horse Arya rode off on is Death. Theories blown.

Sansa did marry a Jonas brother. So. She & Tyrion will likely rule. After the women fight it out. Dany v. Sansa v. Greyjoy Sister. Last Game of Thrones next Sunday. Gonna miss it. Whatever will be. Will be.

Will not miss VEEP. Bye Felicia.

Mamas & Dragons

Blustery day for moms. Glad we celebrated on a gorgeous uncrowded Saturday. Any time with mAdBen is a perfect day.

Amy Poehler’s Wine Country movie. Ten minutes in. Unwatchable. Emma Thompson on SNL. Watchable. Keenan Thompson. Neither.

Memo to Kamala and other candidates. Ban these phrases:
We are better than this
This is not who we are

GOT theory expressed by our waiter. The dragons’ real mama is still out there. And. Tyrion is a Targaryen. That could be interesting.

Wight Night

The long awaited battle. Night King v. Bran & Arya. Wind whistles as everyone anticipates in silence at Winterfell. Dragons spew fire and ice. Melisandre conjures her torches. Wights cross the flaming trenches. Winter is here. The invasion has begun.

Dark scenes of blood and gore. Then. At the crescendo. Piano infused slow motion vignettes. Gorgeous. A beautiful stand alone art film. And. Ultimately satisfying. Only rivaled by Cersei’s revenge last season.

Game of Thrones. Three more to go.

Donkeys & Dragons

As the Night King, his Wights and newly turned dragon close in on Winterfell, there are cobbled-together troops and two dragons waiting to fend them off. Who will rule on the Iron Throne if they do? Cersei. Jon the true Targaryen. Dany his lovie aunt. Sansa Stark of the North. A Boratheon. All the other kings and queens waiting in the wings. Or. Will they all die and the Night King reign supreme.

Kinda like the 19 soon to be 20 donkeys lining up to take over the White House and de-throne the Orange King. See above. Seriously. Impeachment, righteous indignation and a wobbly cast of would-be presidents are not strategies to replace The Donald. One good candidate who can get more votes is the only happy ending.

GOT Siblings?

Game of Thrones. Season finale. Siblings rule. Khaleesi’s brother is Jon Snow’s father. Their heir would be set to take the throne. One of her dragon babies now kills walls with its blue flames. Will his dragon brothers turn on him? Theon Greyjoy finally fights for his sister as Queen. Cersei, despite her spite, cannot kill her brothers. One of whom is her new baby’s daddy. Again. Sansa colludes with her sister Arya to thwart the betrayer of their aunt sisters. Of course. The Mountain and The Hound are brothers. And. Will Sam avenge his brother’s firey demise? Who knows? But siblings will wage the last battle. As adversaries. Or allies.

Winter is definitely here. Great seven episodes. Sad to see this year’s adventures end.

Summer Clunkers

Beach reads not even worth the reviews. Chick lit lite. At best. The Heirs, Susan Rieger. A superficial soap opera with implausible scenarios. Ditto. The Arrangement, Sarah Dunn. You guessed it. A couple with an autistic boy decides to set ground rules for cheating on each other for six months. Of course. It all goes wrong. Syrupy in the end.

Ray Donovan. This season better get better. Fast. Devolved into maudlin slow episodes. Last week of GOT. No! Good thing it’s gorgeous weather. Tavern on the Green patio. Or. Bringing our own chairs to watch eclipse, read, have lunch in the park. Yes!

GOT Icicle?

Game of Thrones 6. Falling through cracked ice. White Walkers on parade. Khaleesi rides in for the save. Then. The Icicle spear. Her baby goes down. Jon Snow’s uncle namesake Viserion. As his eyes glow blue. Mother is mad. Who will emerge victorious? Whose face will Arya wear? It’ll be Cersei v. Snow. Jaime will turn. And. Dragonglass v. Kryptonite in the end.
