It's been four days since the latest Game of Thrones episode, so I don't want to hear and "spolier" complaints. The moment Sansa showed up on Jon Snow's doorstep just before he was about to leave town for good, I was instantly more pumped than I've ever been watching this show.
Back when it started five years ago, (at least in my mind) it was all about the Starks. They were the good guys. Arya was training to do battle with her skinny little sword, and I assumed she would some day rule the kingdom with it. But then their family was beaten and skewered a million different ways, with their few surviving members sent to various reaches of the planet.
So many other plot lines came and went that the plight of the Starks was all but forgotten.
And now, finally, it appears to be coming back. I just hope the writers are smart enough to reunite the whole squad and put Jon, Sansa, Arya, Bran and that other kid who doesn't seem to matter (they might as well toss Theon back on the team as well) all in the same place at the same time for their final f-you world-domination revenge tour.
Not a spoiler, but the Stark kids all reuniting to take back Winterfell has the potential to be one of my favorite plot lines in TV history.— Mark Van Deusen (@LucidSportsFan) May 16, 2016
