  1. I am amazed that so many are giving this a 10. To each their own, of course, but the Cersei garbage alone should knock off at least one point. How many times did she pointlessly pretend to change her mind about the truce? And why would it be a good idea to let the army of the dead rampage through the North, so that when they get to the Neck, they have ten times as many zombies? That's thick even for her. Bah, I should stop before I end up talking myself into giving this an even lower score.
  2. I was a bit bored by the entire affair at King's Landing, from the predictable banter between X character and Y character to the repeated non-twists of Cersei. The North's scenes were better, and even though that trial flip was unearned, it was satisfying to watch. Bran seems to have been reduced to Winterfell's walking (or rolling) aerial slash exposition machine, but at least he's being put to use. Then there was that final scene beyond the wall (and I do mean final), which was terrific. So the finale was en exhibition of everything that's good and bad about the current state of the program. Even though the bad got more screen time, the good was good enough for me to give this a 7. I nearly gave it a 6, but I gave last week a 6 and this is better than last week. Still, that's got to be the lowest score I've given a season finale. Is it too late to put this show on hiatus until GRR Martin can make the time to have a sit-down with D&D to discuss the direction of this thing?

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 706?

    Almost the same number of people seem to have given this one an 1, a 5, and a 10. I guess that's the definition of a divisive episode. 6 from me.

    How would you rate episode 701?

    7/10 An overall decent setup episode, and a good introduction for viewers back into Westeros. The only scene I didn't care for was the opener. Having Arya kill Lord Walder was terrific. Having her murder the whole house Frey is just silly.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 610?

    I give this a 10, teleporting Varys and all. The very best of the season, perhaps the last two seasons.
  6. I believe that was the intention.
  7. Dragons aren't plot gifts. They're the plot.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 608?

    OK, wow. I've never given any GoT episode less than a 6, but this one really worked for its low score. 4/10. It'd get a 2 if it wasn't for Jaime and Edmure's great chat and the ridiculous (in an awesome way) chase between Arya and the Waif. Everything else played out like it was written in half an hour on the back of an actual script.

    9/10 This is the strongest episode yet.

    After the largely uninteresting last episode, this was a breath of fresh air. 9/10. I'd give it a higher score but my rule is no Tyrion, no ten.

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 605?

    Well damn. They could wind this thing up by the end of next season the way they're galloping on. Three big reveals and two significant deaths in one episode. Shame it wasn't better done, but it was still decent, particularly that final couple of minutes. 7/10

    [Poll] How would you rate episode 604?

    There was quite a bit to love about this episode. Tyrion's bit was probably my favorite, because I'm a very boring person. But Ramsey's letter to Jon Snow was pretty cool as well. I think they tried to milk a bit too much emotion out of the reunion of Jon and Sansa, seeing as I can't recall them ever sharing a scene in this series. The ending was ridiculous, but in a fun sort of way. 8/10

    It was pretty good. A bit of decompression after the first two episodes. 8/10
