Another brilliant episode. Even if the finale is a massive disappointment, I think this season is a lock for best season of the series so far. Some of the early seasons are kind of a blur because I watched them all back-to-back but I think I remember liking season 1 the most. This season has probably surpassed it. Hopefully they stick the landing in the final season and go out on top.
- This is kind of silly but one thing that keeps bothering me is the new guy playing the Night King. I feel like his appearance in season 5 looked a lot cooler than he looks now. I went to google a picture of the old and new one to post here and actually saw an article talking about it here. The old Night King is on the left and looks amazing and the new one is on the right and looks kinda like a Power Rangers villain.
- I kinda had a feeling a dragon was going to die in this episode. And the second it went down I knew it was going to become a White Walker Flyer dragon.
- I'm thinking that the guy who came back to life a bunch of times is going to eventually die saving Jon. That's probably why he returned a bunch of times. And speaking of that stuff, I imagine Melisandre will play a big part in the final season and when that happens, I hope they explain more about that ink monster thing she gave birth to. That hasn't been mentioned in years.
- What was the point of Jon's uncle? Why even introduce him in the show? He had two appearances that I can recall and helped out the Stark kids but we'll likely never find out why he was half-dead or something and clearly they only brought him back this week to die as he had plenty of time to get on the horse...unless he wanted to die.
- In a way it's kinda goofy how quick stuff happens now. Like I get that they're all closer because they seem to all be heading towards King's Landing but it just seems weird how in about 12 hours Gendry can run back to the wall, a raven can get all the way to Dany and she can fly all the way into the middle of nowhere and find Jon and friends.
- I do not like Jon bending the knee. I want them to be equal partners and to destroy the iron throne when they reach it, not sit on it. And the line about breaking the wheel this week seems to imply that.
