Um wow. I did not expect that. I did not expect at all to be so torn here! There were a couple of great scenes and a couple of things that didn’t sit right with me this time and I can’t ignore them.
First of all – after making one of the most stupid decisions to go beyond the Wall and capture a Wight/White Walker, the group’s travel just felt off. The conversations between the different characters felt out of place. I didn’t like how it was done.
I liked the fight with the Walker-bear, that was cool and I also liked Tormund talking about Brienne. Tormund in general is still awesome 🙂 Also, WHY DON’T YOU GUYS WEAR HATS!! Why are there no beanies in Westeros??
I thought it was interesting, that all the Wights got destroyed when the Walker who turned them was killed. It will make it easier – just attack the generals. Or the Night King himself.
After they capture a Wight and see an army of nasties come towards them, they send Gendry back to the Wall to send a raven to Dany and call for help. They get circled by a whole army and wait miserably on a rock. Night King is watching them. Thoros of Myr dies. At least Tormund and the Hound are still alive.
When the army attack them, they fight for their lives! And I loved those scenes. So desperate and well done! I almost thought Tormund was done for!!!
And then, just before they get overwhelmed, Dragon ex Machina!!! Dany & all of her 3 dragons come for the rescue. As much as I liked how this scene looked visually and how well it was done, how great the music was and the fact that I love dragons to death…
I kinda ignored the fact that everyone apparently knows how to teleport, but this was TOO MUCH! So Gendry runs back to the Wall. They send a raven to DRAGONSTONE (which should take a while!) and then Dany decides to rescue everyone and flies from DRAGONSTONE to the freaking WALL!!
You might have seen this map which shows where Jon Snow traveled since the end of Season 5. Dragonstone is all the way down in the South and we all know where the Wall is! You can’t explain it away and say time has passed and they just sped it up.. They were surrounded by Walkers for how long? Weeks? Without any food and in the cold?
The Night King killing Viserion broke my heart!! I can’t watch animals dying, and dragons is even worse 😦 Of course he has a freaking White Walker Dragon now, this is NOT GOOD!! Damn damn damn, giant dragon battle next episode??? Leave my other 2 dragon babies alone!!!!
At least Dany is convinced and tells Jon, who has more plot armor than anyone else on the show now, that she will fight the Night King with him. They have a very emotional scene together and I can see where this is going.
Considering the talk about succession that came up in Dany’s conversation with Tyrion (which was brilliant by the way..), this will either mean Dany’s getting pregnant (pls no) or she will make Jon her successor.
Also, Benjen ex Machina! Hey Jon, bye Jon. There was enough space on that horse!!!
I am not sure what to think about what’s happening in Winterfell anymore. I want to believe that Arya has a plan and is not actually trying to kill her sister. Fuck you, Littlefinger, this is all your fault. And Bran, a little help please?!
Soo… that was the second to last episode. Definitely not my favourite and I am not as hype for next week as I thought I’d be! I mean, the Hound is going to King’s Landing and is probably going to see his brother! Dany and Jon are seeing Cersei. Brienne will meet up with Jaime again.
Maybe I am just upset that it’ll be all over soon 😀
