I enjoyed the finale. My boy Bronn got everything he was promised. Sir Davos didn’t get to be Hand of the King but he got a seat at the table and that’s honestly a much better outcome than I expected. Samwell finally got his Maester chain. Ghost finally got some well-deserved pats. Tormund and Jon were reunited and it appears that Jon will be the new King Beyond the Wall, which I think is fitting.
I’m looking forward to the prequels, but what I really want to see is a spinoff about Arya’s adventures at sea. In the meantime it looks like I’m going to have to settle for reading the damn books (perhaps setting myself up for disappointment if Martin never finishes them).
