That wasn’t as bad as you thought it was going to be - or - was it? No matter how’re your feeling now (angry, pleased, relieved to released from the grip of this nightmare show), this episode was thick with things to get through, so for the final time reader, let’s recap!
The snow has barely settled on the dead of The Battle of Winterfell and the icy shards of The Night King and his frosty cronies, but the characters of Game of Thrones are already back to doing what they do best – committing betrayals and making really bad decisions.
Sweet vindication! Last week I called that The Night King would bite the ice this episode, even though far more well respected Game of Thrones scholars than I (and by that I mean people with much more followers than me on Twitter) thought he could go all the way to Kings Landing with his hell-carnival of non-stop death, misery and violence.
It’s been a long time – especially as, disappointingly, HBO didn’t accidentally leak episodes like in past seasons of yore – but Game of Thrones is finally back on our TV screens and illegal online streams.
