Today is Monday, which means it’s the day after Sunday, which means it's time for an update on the fluid laws of life and death in Westeros — the kingdom in which people die, but are not always dead.

In the most recent episode of Game of Thrones, characters said, "What is dead may never die" several times for no reason, and a character came back to life COMPLETELY UNEXPECTEDLY. Just goes to show, you really can do anything on your TV show, there are actually no rules at all.


I think I speak for the whole nation when I say: this was jarring and emotionally manipulative. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the man responsible for the months — bordering on a YEAR — of lies had one thing to say to us, the psychologically demolished millions:

"Sorry? Sorry for lying to everyone."

Okay, great.

Of course, with the resurrection of Jon Snow comes the death of a good meme. But only death pays for life. Kill the meme and let the man be born. There is only one thing we say to death: not today (and "sorry?").
