For its final two seasons, however, GoT was far more a show about plot and action, about hurtling these characters to Where They Had To Go without spending time to honor who they had become. For Daenerys, that meant racing her into unearned megalomania and mass murder, so her story could end in the mournful finale with her beloved Jon Snow stabbing her in the heart. Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington gave as much as they could to this tragic climax, and as directors, Benioff and Weiss captured it with some striking visual tableaus.
The resolution to just about everything around that narrative, at least, was far more satisfying, in a very GoT -y way. I was especially glad to see how central Tyrion figured in the finale, given how recessive his character had become; Peter Dinklage finally had something to work with, and he gave a performance rich with the ruefulness, anger, and moxie that has defined Tyrion from the start. This is how you payoff a character's eight-season journey.
In the end, though, I think I identified most with Arya. Just one episode after the disaster that was "Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken," GoT employs the threat of rape again as a storytelling device to allow Sam a moment of heroism aided greatly by Ghost that consummates his relationship with Gilly. Otherwise, however, this episode put Season 5 back on much surer footing. Cersei's shortsighted support of the High Sparrow bites back at her with a vengeance, but not before she's allowed the small victory of seeing Margaery stripped of her finery and dignity.
And once again, Benioff and Weiss take a bold step beyond Martin's books by bringing Tyrion and Dany together after Ser Jorah triumphs in the fighting pits. Everything about this episode is fabulous — especially the sight of Brienne fending off a grizzly bear with a wooden sword — except for two scenes. One: more mystic wheel-spinning with Bran, Jojen, and Osha. And two: two naked women torturing Theon by turning him on, just so the Boy can cut off his The bad: The sudden discovery of Ser Jorah's betrayal of Dany three seasons earlier feels weirdly, needlessly abrupt, as if Benioff and Weiss weren't quite sure how to fit it in this season, so they just tacked it on.
The good: Sansa's brilliant transformation from Cersei's innocent "little dove" into Littlefinger's slippery dream woman.
Remade: The Meaning of Makeovers on the Silver Screen
The split decision: The battle between Oberyn and Ser Gregor Clegane, in which the former nearly defeats the latter, until the latter crushes the former's skull like an egg. Yes, the execution of the scene was packed with top-notch tension, and Pascal certainly made the most of Oberyn's blinding need for revenge. But this felt like one cruel storytelling twist too far, not really punishing the characters — none of whom really got to know Oberyn all that well — but the audience — many of whom came to love Oberyn more than they may have expected.
So, Daenerys. She can be ruthless when backed into a corner, and with almost no one left alive from her transformative journey through Essos, I can see how Dany could be pushed to the very edge of her benevolence and fall — tragically — into genocide. I can see it, but the writers never bothered to show it. There was even time for Tyrion to bid a mournful farewell to Varys, and then Jaime.
Just about all the acting in this episode, actually, was superlative, often making meals out of morsels. If only the script had matched them. There is a fine line between satisfying climactic drama and shameless pandering to make fans happy, and this gratifyingly fraught and frustratingly indulgent episode trampled all over it. I mean, my gods, watching Viserion careen through the air and slam into the ice took my breath away. But the haste with which these seven popular, wildly disparate characters were slammed together and thrust beyond The Wall left their interactions feeling shallow instead of richly earned.
And yet I cannot deny how entertaining this episode still was in the moment — especially the human drama between Jon and Dany. Perhaps counterintuitively, I also dug the vexing conflict between Arya and Sansa. As for the frustrating implication that Littlefinger was playing these two siblings for chumps, I never really bought it. It is thrilling to have this dyspeptic knight, and the sour mournfulness with which Rory McCann plays him, back on the show.
Every Episode Of "Game Of Thrones" Ranked From Worst To Best
There are, however, several broken men highlighted in this perfectly fine episode: Theon, who seemed to exist this season only to make his bisexual sister Yara more interesting; Jaime, whose empty bluster does nothing to impress the Blackfish; and even Jon Snow, whose recent resurrection does not aid his attempt to mount an army large enough to take back Winterfell.
They should all take heed of the young and formidable Lady Lyanna Mormont Bella Ramsey , who knows how to command a room with not much more than a wave of her hand. After lurking so long on the sidelines, Littlefinger looms large in this episode, as we learn that the inciting incident that launched the entire series — the death of Jon Arryn — was really his doing, a twist that makes brilliant sense.
But when did Littlefinger start talking out of the side of his mouth all the time? Does he have a canker sore or something? Also, and this is no small thing: Bran actually does something — warg-ing his way into Hodor's body — that is certifiably cool! And, in hindsight, sadly prophetic of Hodor's ultimate fate! Weiss story. Tyrion talks his way out of certain doom at the Eyrie more on that place later , and Ned at long last figures out that it's a wee bit odd that all of King Robert's kids happen to have blonde hair.
But this episode is all about Viserys' golden crown. Of all the "shocking" deaths on this show, the fact that Khal Drogo killed his wife's lout of a brother came as no surprise. How he did it, however, was an outstandingly gruesome method of execution. We could talk about Joffrey's staggering sexual cruelty, or the welcome end to Dany's drudgery through the desert, or the beginning of the end of Robb Stark as he meets his beloved Talisa for the first time. But, really, why would we talk about anything other than Melisandre's smoke baby?
Watching an inky black creature emerge from the loins of a suddenly pregnant woman remains one of the most vivid images from the entire show. Like "Blackwater" before it, this is the heretofore rare episode that spends the entire runtime rooted in a single location: Castle Black as it is besieged on both ends by Mance Rayder's army. The quiet scenes of interaction — like between Sam and Gilly, or Sam and Maester Aemon, or Sam and pretty much anyone — are just as rousing as the epic scenes of battle featuring giants, wooly mammoths, and a massive chain scythe slicing down the wildlings trying to scale the wall.
Unlike "Blackwater," however, the buildup to this battle during Season 4 felt too slack, starving it of a necessary feeling of driving anticipation and dread — which may be why Ygritte's death doesn't pack quite the punch that it should. Still, Kit Harington gives great weary, tragic hero.
After seven years on the show, you can feel the excitement these actors felt to finally share a scene together. In previous seasons, this episode would have otherwise consisted of other plot strands moving incrementally forward. When this episode first aired, it was dismissed by some as too slow. But looking back at it now, so much of what was to come — not just in this season, but the rest of the series — was presaged in this episode. The Stark's conflict with the Lannisters.
Arya's vendetta against Joffrey and the Hound. Sansa's divided loyalties. Dany's connection to her dragon eggs. The identity of Jon Snow's mother. And yet none of it felt like "setup" — it was just the characters dealing with the circumstances before them.

Oh, and Tyrion slaps Joffrey — over and over and over. It's glorious. A thoroughly solid and satisfying episode. Davos proves his worth to Stannis in Braavos including a great cameo by Sherlock 's Mark Gatiss as a supercilious banker ; Yara Greyjoy discovers just how far her brother has fallen; and Dany's dragons lay waste to some poor goats. And then there's the Tyrion's barnburner of a trial, which features a classic Game of Thrones curveball, leading us to believe Tywin has manipulated Jaime into saving Tyrion's life, only to have Tyrion turn the tables by venting his fury at all of King's Landing for being persecuted for being a dwarf, and request trial by combat — once again.
Of all the locations in Westeros, I'm still the most enchanted and unnerved by the Eyrie, from the towering prison's "sky cells," with their open wall facing a long drop down, to Catelyn's batcrap-crazy sister Lysa, who still breast-feeds her 8-year-old son. Lest that image burn too deep into our brains, we also got Theon going full monty with Ros, and Renly getting busy with Ser Loras. So everything balanced out. Plus, genuine story developments!
Ned resigns! And fights Jaime! And loses! For those unfamiliar with the books who'd been grousing that nothing was happening on this show, "The Wolf and the Lion" announced that Game of Thrones was weirder, sexier, and more dangerous than your average fantasy fare. There is more unpleasantness with the Boltons of Winterfell, this time at the dinner table. But those are quibbles when compared to the marvelous developments unfolding in Essos. Dany begins to find her mojo again, employing her dragons Viserion and Rhaegal to bring the great families of Meereen back in line.
And as Missandei tends to an injured Grey Worm at his bedside, they share the single most romantic moment of the season — granted, there wasn't much by way of competition, but still, when they kissed, I swooned. And then — and then! From their discussion of the ancient Doom, to Tyrion's face upon seeing a dragon for the first time, to the terrifying attack of the greyscale-riddled Stone Men, this is a superlative example of the grand fantasy storytelling at which GoT excels.
With the world of GoT spread so far and wide by the end of Season 2, this episode suffered a wee bit from having to touch base with every single story line. But so many of those story lines ended so well — Theon getting thunked on the head, Tyrion licking his wounds, Samwell cowering from the army of wights and White Walkers — that it hardly matters.
Given what happens to them, meanwhile, I cannot bring myself to say that the marriage of Robb and Talisa "ended well," but it was nice to see them happy for a short time, at least. And the episode still carved out plenty of time for Dany to both rediscover her dragons and, more importantly, her sense of power and purpose.
So much happens! Sansa and Tyrion endure the most awkward wedding ever. Melisandre seduces Gendry so she can draw out his royal blood. And what seems like the introduction of three new characters — mercenaries Dany hopes to woo over to her side — really turns out to be the introduction of one: Daario Naharis played by Ed Skrein this season, and recast with Michiel Huisman in Season 4 , arriving just in time to take up the mantle of Game of Thrones ' cocky dreamboat warrior from the handless and humbled Jaime. The best moment, though, goes to the spooky murder of crows that gather to witness an attempt to steal Gilly's newborn son by a White Walker, which gets shattered instead by Sam's dragonglass dagger.
But perhaps they exist! Otherwise, an outstanding episode. Tyrion's escape comes far too easy, as does Stannis' unwitting rescue of Jon Snow in Mance Rayder's camp. And Dany placing her dragons in chains feels just too undifferentiated from all the other hard choices she's had to make as the self-imposed ruler of Slaver's Bay. That aside, however, this is a energizing conclusion to an odd, dark, frustrating, and satisfying season.
So many little moments were pitch-perfect, like Jon Snow finally meeting the man for whom his father died; Cersei spitting her incestuous affair with Jaime in her father's face; Tyrion discovering Shae in his father's bed; and Brienne and Arya bonding over being women who love to fight. Speaking of, that battle between Brienne and the Hound is easily the best one-on-one brawl ever on this show, and the Hound subsequently begging a stoic Arya to stab his heart — well, I certainly do not understand why HBO did not submit Rory McCann for an Emmy.
But the Season 5 finale was all of these things at once. The tragedy of Stannis, meanwhile, ended with the perfect note of epic, calamitous regret. I was left not only with questions like why is Arya blind and where did Reek and Sansa land, but more basic ones, like is Arya blind and did Reek and Sansa land safely? What's that? Indeed, it was frustrating to watch everyone involved with the show tie themselves into knots just to trick viewers into thinking Jon's "death" was true. But it's also hard to deny how powerful a gut punch the moment itself was — even if it was, ultimately, just a storytelling conceit to free Jon from his lifelong pledge to serve in the Night's Watch.
Hot tubs and sexy times abound: Jon and Ygritte get horizontal in a cave with hot springs, and Ser Loras grabs some sack time with his alas, disloyal squire. And when a broken and beaten Jaime slides into a steaming bath with Brienne, he finally drops the armor around his soul — and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau nails the scene he's waited three seasons to play.
Emmys, are you paying attention? If the series premiere didn't work — if it didn't simultaneously transport us to a fully realized fantasy world and immediately dial us into the emotional lives of its characters — then, well, for one thing, this list wouldn't exist. Fortunately, from the eerie prologue set beyond the wall can't you still hear the ominous clicking of the White Walkers?
There were many GoT fans frustrated by the action-free pace of the first two episodes of the final season — but I am not one of them! In order for all the carnage and heartbreak of the rest of the season to resonate, we needed to be reminded of how the bonds between all of these disparate characters have shifted and evolved over the course of the show.
Just one small example that reduced me to tears: The simple look of love and support that Podrick shoots Brienne after Jaime offers to knight her, followed by everything else that happens in that scene. I just rewatched it, and, yup, crying again! All of it felt like the best kind of fan service: Gratifying payoffs for our devotion to the show that also felt totally right for the characters in that moment. Ding dong, the king is dead!
Before the fateful climax of the wedding between Joffrey and Margaery, however, there are some fabulous scenes with the Lannister siblings — together, and apart, as they strive to protect what they love most dear. We also finally understand exactly what Ramsay Snow was doing with Theon Greyjoy — turning him into a simpering human pet named Reek — and it is so much more compelling than all the torture that preceded it.
Did we need to see that torture to believe Theon's transformation? The crown jewel of this episode, however, is Joffrey's purple, blood-clotted face as the life is choked out of him thanks to some poison planted by the Queen of Thorns herself. Jack Gleeson makes the absolute most of his final hour on Game of Thrones and as a professional actor, apparently , driving Joffrey's gleeful sadism to its most cruel and cutting limits without ever tipping into arch self-parody.
It's such a masterful act of high-wire acting that, may the gods forgive me, I'm actually going to miss the little snot. A little. The fallout from Ned's execution touches almost every story line, and unlike the disappointing "Mhysa," this season finale manages to reflect the audience's shock at the unexpected death along with the characters'. Who didn't want Sansa to push Joffrey off that catwalk for exposing her to her father's severed head? The episode also pulled off a major pivot in the show's attitude toward its fantasy roots with the awesome reveal of Dany's dragons.
After the unearthly prologue that opened the show, Game of Thrones in Season 1 was essentially a medieval period drama. But after that baby dragon hopped on its mother's shoulder and let out its first wail, GoT finally let its freak flag fly. So much went down in this episode — the Lord Commander bites it!
The Season 7 finale brought almost its entire cast together for the first time since the series premiere, and instead of feeling like a fan-fiction clusterfuck, it was one of the most taut, rousing, and delightful sequences ever mounted on the show. From the astonishing display of Dany's army, to Tyrion's charming reunion with Bronn and Podrick, to the tense, is this a trap? Rather than a rushed attempt to cut to the bits we think we want, these characters were allowed to just breathe the same air together and let their collective years of shared history and enmity spark into great drama.
It was all thanks to the longest Game of Thrones episode to date, 79 minutes that finally returned the show to a more humane storytelling pace — I especially relished the quiet moments where we simply watched winter descend upon King's Landing. Otherwise, this episode was most occupied with the tangled bonds of sibling devotion.
