In general, the episode was somewhat better than I expected after watching the previous episode, "Beyond the Wall", as it at least included a few plot twist and a couple of epic moments like the ice dragon breaking the Wall. The twists, though, were not a huge shocker type of twists which earlier seasons so often introduced and some of them were easily predictable.
The beginning of the episode seemed unnaturally stretched and the dialog was not impressive (the only good part there was the conversation between Cercei and Jaime after the 'arrangement' was made with Daenerys).
The Winterfell scenes were even worse, with the rushed dead of Littlefinger. Peter Baelish was one of the most interesting, smart, and unpredictable characters in the show (my personal favorite character) and he deserved more than the quick, boring dead he got in this episode.
And the Sam story line. Why do they even bother shooting it? It seems separated, totally unnecessary and unimportant. All he did in the entire season was to read two facts in some manuscript and save Jorah (which is totally unrelated so far as well) and then he suddenly appears in Winterfell traveling through half the Westeros during winter in an episode or so.
And the romance between Jon and Dany was so predictable and awfully done; surely the writers could come up with something more intriguing than just putting the two main characters (as it becomes obvious in the last two season) together.
Generally, this season is the worst in the entire series, even more awful than season 5 which started lowering the quality of the show because of diverging from the books so much and creating a lot of plot holes (some of which season 6 tried to fix, though probably introducing more than fixing). Hopefully George R. R. Martin has something more excited planned and the quality of the books won't drop like that of the show did. READ MORE... >> http://bit.ly/2vOaw6s
