Or maybe does something with Bran/Night King as part of their trap - could be balancing his attempted murder there maybeYeah, I feel as if Jamie wrapped up his stuff a little too neatly...I think the real question is this: Which character will end up surviving as a result of some "heroic" act by Jamie that costs him his life...
Is it Brienne (too obvious maybe)? Dany? One of the Stark gals? Tyrion?
If there were Vegas odds I would probably splash a little dough on Tyrion or the Stark sisters....
Also Theon. Great episode. I think it's too be expected they have to wrap things up and it won't be to everyone liking. I'm going to be very forgiving with everything since i really just want the series to end and see it through. It was the same for me with Breaking Bad, Sopranos, The Wire, pretty much every show I really liked.Wow. That was amazing. What an incredibly well made episode of this battle toward which the show has been building for 8 years.
Arya Stark's 'dropping the dagger into her other hand' move reminded me of Rey dropping her lightsaber into her other hand to kill that crimson guard dude in The Last Jedi.
Lady Mormont killing the zombie giant was badass.
I lost track of who died, but I think Jorah Mormont was the only *major* character to die. I'm not sure if both dragons survived.
As amazing as this battle was, I am surprised to see the series' Big Bad finished off in a single episode. I can't help but feel the remaining three episodes, over the fate of the iron throne, will be anti-climactic.
I thought the battle scenes were purposely "too dark" and chaotic, to help drive home the fact that the fighters could not tell what was happening in the darkness, and also to save cost on what was already perhaps the most expensive television episode of all time. They managed to show the slaughter of the entire Dothraki army - one of the best scenes of the episode/series - by simply showing their flames being extinguished in the distant darkness.Lots of people online complaining about it being "too dark"
It was brought up in season 6 apparently.I'm sorry we didn't get to learn the Night King's identity/background. Is he a Stark? A Targaryen (which would explain why dragon fire doesn't hurt him)? Can he talk? Why not? What does he want?
