The season finale of Game of Thrones was explosive. But did the writers give away -- or at least, give a strong hint to -- the answer to another question lingering since Season 4?
If we pay attention to what she's actually doing and saying in season 6, and if we look to history and to the direction her character is taking -- it's possible that she's fast becoming the villain in the story.
As the Night King descends upon the lands of men, it looks like women will be the ones in charge of stopping the invasion. Whether they will be able to achieve this without destroying one another and the realm in the process remains to be seen.
Like all women I know who do watch the show and read the books, I entered the fanbase by recommendation from a man already watching the show, AKA the only Game of Thrones point of entry for women.
They are an integral part of what has made Game of Thrones such a global pop culture phenomenon. But if it weren't for their great PR machine, these dragons would be considered as super villains.
Whether they seek to overthrow it, try to seize control within its limits, rebel against it and become outcasts, try to survive its perils, use their position of authority within it or manipulate their way forward, all of the women of Westeros have one problem in common.
