Game of Thrones S07 E07: The Dragon and the Wolf

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.

Game of Thrones S07 E04: ‘The Spoils of War’

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).

Find out why, after the break!

Game_of_Thrones_title_card

Hard to believe we’re at the halfway point of season six of “Game of Thrones.”  Fittingly,  it’s a time of transition as  the great wheels of war begin rolling again.  We say goodbye to old friends, perhaps make a few deals with the devil, and find out what ‘hodor’ means in the most f*cking depressing way possible.  Oh dear, spoilers and such. More after the break.
