Did anyone else notice all the ironic deaths that Season 6 did?
(spoilers follow to those who haven't seen up to the end)
First, Roose Bolton. He betrayed Robb and stabbed him in the chest with a knife. Ramsay later kills Roose the exact same way.
Second, Ramsay Bolton himself, at the top of all the "must die in Season 6" lists. He has his dogs hunt girls for sport, and fed his baby brother and Walda to them. In the end, Sansa chooses them as her method of killing him, as he hasn't fed them for seven days, thus, Ramsay goes the way of Scar from The Lion King.
Finally, Walder Frey. His son Black Walder slit Catelyn's throat in his name at the Red Wedding. Then, when Arya returns, the first name she crosses off her list is Walder, and she slits his throat (which, long before that scene came up, I said would be the perfect death for him).
Really shame that such a great character in GoT series as Ramsay Bolton had to meet such unfortunate end. I mean if only they'd make the plot and story longer, the series I think would have better upcoming end and with more antagonists still alive. Now the only antagonists left are Cersei (soon to die I presume) and White Walkers and all of Westeros battling against them is not something I want to expect as the final battle of the series...
I also think Season 7 will be last season. Daenerys will defeat Cersei and take the Iron Throne, and her dragons will kill Gregor with a blast of flame (being a zombie, only fire can kill him). As to the White Walkers, they'll be hard to take down since the only weapons that can both affect them and withstand their swords are dragonglass and Valyrian Steel. (But Sam has a sword of Valyrian steel now)
I also think 7 10-episode seasons is a decent length, and now Season 7 just has to wrap up the final stories of Daenerys vs. Cersei and the White Walker battles.
Besides, who's to say they can't add new villains? Joffrey and Tywin died in Season 4 so aside from Cersei (and more minor villains like Qyburn and Pycelle) there's no more villains left in King's Landing going into Season 5. And then the High Sparrow came along and he seemed to overshadow even Ramsay as the most prominent villain of Seasons 5 and 6 (though Ramsay is still the most evil and sadistic villain alongside Joffrey).
Season 8 will be the last season for sure as annouced by HBO and season 7 will only have 7 episodes in it. They better make them count too cuz this last season sucked until the last 2 episodes. Of course everyone forgets how bad the season really was with such poor writing and no book to go off of then BAM! 2 AWESOME episodes at the end and everyone says its the best season ever! So funny!
Well second episode of Season 2 was pretty good. The resurrection of Jon Snow, the return of Bran with the Three-Eyed Raven, the unexpected death of Roose Bolton, and the long-awaited death of Balon Greyjoy

Of course last two were still the best
You are absosutly correct. Tyrion released the dragons (of course he should have fed them cuz Grey Worm and Missandei told him they han't eaten since Dany left) so why didn't they chow down on him? Why didn't Tyrion release them, release them? Like get them out from under the pyramid? The origianl question was Ironic deaths in Season 6 and the defintion of "ironic" is"happening in the opposite way to what is expected, and typically causing wry amusement because of this". And by that defintion Roose Bolton, Ramsay Bolton and Walder Frey are NOT ironic deaths, but very much expected, in one way or another. Do you agree?
