Could it end on a note that makes us howl with frustration because we know we’ve got ten long months before we get a new episode? Find out all this and more, after the break.
Wow. Just… wow. Over these last seven point four three seasons, Game of Thrones has left me in many states: Sad, exultant, angry, completely bereft of hope that the concept of “good” was anything but an illusion manufactured by our ape brains to cope with the sheer cruelty and meaningless of life…
…but never have I ever left an episode feeling so completely shaken, and unsure about where exactly my loyalties lie. Please meet me on the analysts couch after the break (spoilers abound).
