It was fun to watch but the more I think about it the more it is disappointing. So much was done in the service of cool visuals and moments for minor characters rather than story and lore.
What was the point of light the Dothraki swords on fire if they die immediately? Cool visual.
Bran Warged into his Ravens for no purpose at all except to fly them by the Night King. He literally did nothing that entire battle.
And what about all that lore that seemed to set up Jon as the one to challenge the Night King. Like what did Jon actually contribute to the battle?
Seemed like they structured the battle around fan service and cool things they wanted to put on the screen (Dragon Dogfight for example).
It was definitely cool to watch but I think a let down when it comes to the build-up to the Night King over 7 seasons. [\Spoiler]
I am hoping we get more about "where bran was" and it will figure into next few eps somehow. I believe there was a purpose and we'll find out - they kept cutting back to him to show him deep in the mind-world or whatever but without showing us anything more after the ravens flew past the king - so I think thats the show telling us there's a little story there in where he went!
