Amidst all the twists, turns, reveals, deaths and HUGE, AMAZING WILDFIRE EXPLOSIONS, there was something a bit familiar about the series six finale of Game of Thrones. Namely, this scene.
Now, depending on how you feel about it, this was either the tragic end of a naive boy king, or a stroke of dark, comedic genius. Tommen, carefully removing his crown, casually walking out of shot, casually walking back into shot, and then – as if it was totally normal – jumping out of the window. It was less a death, and more of a punchline.
But where have we seen it before? Well, of course, as one Twitter user pointed out, it’s very similar to a scene in Channel 4’s The IT Crowd.
