I’m in the minority that is enjoying this season. Yes, it feels rushed. Yes, there have been some disappointing endings for some characters. But the series is ending and to me that means disappointment is inevitable.
Episode 5, in my opinion, was the best episode of this season (episode 4 was the worst). The touching last meeting of the Lannister Brothers. The gut-wrenching escape of Arya as Drogon delivers death from above. The anguished look on Jon’s face as his queen shows her true colors and his own men turn to savagery. This was the Game of Thrones that I’ve come to expect.
