I actually thought that episode was a bit weak-sauce. Too much slow motion, too much repetitive shots, especially in the second half. <spoiler alert> I expected the last word of the episode to be “Daenerys Targaryen”. I would put at least even odds on Arya doing a twofer. And, “you know nothing, Jon Snow” seems super appropriate here. I was also saddened by Tyrion turning in Varys. But, still enjoyable. A lot has to happen in one episode.
Overall, it is hard for me to rank this vompared to other TV dramas. But, in terms of entire runs, the only TV drama I’ve seen that I would put even near GOT is The Americans. Which did actually land the plane nearly perfectly.
