Can Game of Thrones‘ final episode allow us forgive and forget a season with supersonic Dragons ex Machina, wormhole-riding navies, and characters acting completely out of character? Could it bring the shortened, crazy season to an end with the things that have made this the greatest show on Earth: Excellent pacing, tense storylines, and characters you love to hate and hate to love? 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.
The Lannisters and Targaryens deal with the aftermath of Daenerys’ surprise attack, we get a number of wacky plans so crazy they just might work, and I discover how hard it is to watch Game of Thrones while you’re on vacation and your internet connection sucks. Find out if I made it through the episode without throwing the television out a window, right after the break. Spoilers ahead.
A whole lot to talk about as Fire and Ice finally meet, the Lannisters let loose in several different ways, and we continue to collect missing Starks in a densely packed episode that revealed a ton of things, even as it muddied several paths our heroes need to follow. Let’s talk about them all after the break (and yes… lots and lots of spoilers).
Arya’s revenge spree kicks into high gear, the first cracks appear in an old alliance just as a dangerous new one is forged, and Sam makes a lot of new discoveries, not all of them to his liking. Game of Thrones‘ seventh season kicks off with its foot squarely on the gas and doesn’t let up the entire episode. Find out what what flying in this whirlwind of action right after the break. (and yes, the spoiler warning is in full effect)
This week’s episode gave us a tense, thrilling episode that started slowly before reaching its full, butt-clenching, head-popping boil. We are reminded that it’s best not to ever get too happy or self-satisfied, that the Clegane brothers really do have a lot in common, and it’s really the badass ladies who ultimately rule the Game of Thrones. Find out why, after the break!
AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!! AAAAAHHHH!!! Holy F@&# DID YOU SEE THAT!!!??!!! SHE TRIED… AND THEN HE… AND… CAN’T BREATHE!!!
Okay, relax… deep breaths. “Game of Thrones” is just a television show, not the answer to world peace.
I’ll try to resume some modicum of control, after the break… and of course spoilers ahead… AAAAAA…
“Game of Thrones” is back. After a wait that felt as never-ending as The Long Night that Old Nan Used to Scare Bran Stark with back in season one, we’re finally going to get some answers to questions raised last year: Is Jon dead or alive? How did Sansa and Theon survive a sixty-foot leap off the castle wall? What will this Dothraki horde do with the Queen of Dragons? And we’re going to have it answered in one 52-minute episode, right? Find out after the break.
