And Now, Snoop Dogg's Review Of The 'Game Of Thrones' Finale
It's been a few days now, but some of us are still processing the ending of Game Of Thrones. And like with the death of a loved one, we've moved from shock to denial to watching videos of celebrities sharing their thoughts.
Some have offered takes hot enough to melt the Iron Throne, such as the Green Bay Packers' Aaron Rodgers, who (even though he cameoed in the divisive penultimate episode) tore apart the finale. He even went so far as to suggest that Bran Stark used his powers to purposefully manipulate events in order to claim the throne. Jeez, and here we thought the creepiest use of his greensight would be magically spying on naked people throughout history.
But perhaps the greatest reaction to Game Of Thrones' ending came from legendary rapper Snoop Dogg, whom you'll note has changed his name back from "Snoop Lion" (presumably so people won't assume he was in league with the Lannisters). You might think that the star of Soul Plane wouldn't offer any new insight into a show that's already been analyzed and dissected by seemingly every critic on the planet. But Snoop, who admits he's watching the show later than most, perfectly articulates how a lot of us felt in the moment when Jon Snow stabs Daenerys in the tummy during a makeout session. Warning: The language is not safe for work, unless you work as Snoop Dogg's personal assistant.
Keep in mind, Snoop hadn't even gotten to the part where Jon's punishment for murdering his girlfriend/aunt is to go live rent-free with a bunch of rowdy friends and his loyal canine sidekick. That's not justice; it's the setup for a sitcom HBO will undoubtedly produce.
This isn't the first time Snoop has commented on the series. He once recapped the circumstances of Joffrey's death while getting high with Seth Rogen. He also contributed the song "Lannister's Anthem" to a Game Of Thrones mixtape. And lest we forget, he once claimed to watch the show to "learn about history." In retrospect, the fact that Snoop never got to record a weekly podcast about the goings-on of Westeros is more unjust than the Red Wedding.
