“Game of Thrones” Season 4 has finally come to an end. Episode 10 “The Children” aired on Sunday, June 15, 2014, at 9:00 p.m. on HBO. If you have missed the season finale, then you’re on the right page. Read on to learn more about “Game of Thrones” Season 4 Episode 10 “The Children” recap.

Previously on the “Game of Thrones,” the episode picked up where the battle for the Wall left off. We saw Jon Snow out to negotiate with Mance Rayder. Read the full recap of Episode 9 “The Watchers on the Wall” here.

Jon Snow’s plan worked successfully because Rayder accepted his offer and told him the real reason why they were attacking—for safety. He also told Rayden about the men coming from another part of the wall headed to Castle Black, which meant that the remaining men of the Night’s Watch stands no chance against these men. However, before Jon Snow let them through, an army of heavily armed men came thundering up, and Rayder’s men lost. He yielded to Stannis Baratheon. So this was his plan all along then. Now we know.

Stannis Baratheon wished for “The King Beyond the Wall” to kneel before him ,and Jon Snow’s quick thinking saved his own life by declaring to Stannis that he is the son of Ned Stark and that he fought for Stannis before. Stannis acknowledged him and made him an ally.

With Cersei’s arranged marriage coming to a close, Tywin threatened her daughter to drag her off from it if she refuses to marry. Because Cersei really didn’t want to marry, she told her father that she would tell the truth. The look on Tywin’s face was of pure shock because it confirmed what he was trying to deny to himself all these years—his family was a product of an incest between his son and daughter.

The Mother of Dragons, Daenerys, had to chain her two dragons into the catacombs because her dragon, Drogon, the boy, was missing and had killed a toddler as well.

Brienne has killed The Hound while Arya went off on her own. She even went to see The Hound dying, and The Hound requested that she finish him off. However, Arya refused and left him screaming in pain, facing his death that could take hours to arrive.

As for Tyrion, it’s revenge time. He came to his father’s chambers and was surprised to find Shae on his father’s bed. Tyrion killed Shae by stangling her with her necklace and picked up a crossbow to find his father with his pants down and delivered an arrow to his father’s heart.

That was such a heavy season finale, and it aired on a Father’s Day, June 15, 2014! What do you think of the Season 4 finale? Share us your thoughts by posting your comments below!
