You can count Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez among the multitudes of “Game of Thrones” fans left unsatisfied by Sunday’s series finale.
The two Democrats discussed the last episode of the HBO show in a video released Tuesday.
“It’s been over 24 hours,” the Massachusetts senator wrote. “No more spoiler alerts. Here’s why [Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez] and I are officially on #TeamSansa now.”
The 2020 presidential candidate kicked things off by asking the New York congresswoman if she watched the finale.
“I did, I’m — I’m sad,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “I’m disappointed about it.”
“I was just really — meh,” Warren agreed.
“I feel like we were getting so close to having this ending with just women running the world, and then the last two episodes, it’s like, ‘Oh, they’re too emotional. The end,’” the New York Democrat said, throwing her hands over her head. “It’s like, ‘Oh this is written by men.’”
Warren explained how she made a quick allegiance shift at the end of the series, having previously written about why Daenerys Targaryen was her favorite character. That changed after the “Mother of Dragons” torched King’s Landing, murdering thousands of innocent civilians and moving herself into the position of the show’s No. 1 villain.
The senator said she switched to “Team Sansa,” hoping the elder of the Stark daughters would ascend to the Iron Throne at the end of the series.
But even that wish proved to be a let down.
“Sansa — who already is Queen of the North, thank you very much — she walks away saying, ‘And I’ll still be Queen of the North.’ Come on Sansa, go for the big one!” Warren said.
“I was disappointed,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “We need to get some feminist analysis up in HBO.”
“They need some help on this,” Warren agreed.
