Wow didn't drag for me at all. Amazing finale. Cersei's act was telegraphed throughout the series with mentions of wildfire by various characters, so that didn't surprise me, but the number of characters that ended up gone did! And ah poor Tommen - an innocent surrounded by conniving manipulative people, he had no way out. He wanted to be a good king but no one was going to allow that.

Interesting to see that it finished with most of the women seeming to have the upper hand - although judging by the look that Jaime gave Cersei it's difficult to say what will happen with those two, and what is Varys up to? :?

Isn't the next season going to be shorter?

We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

Yes only 7 eps, I think they're splitting the final series into two. Starts in the UK July 17th.

Yep I loved the ice dragon, although I thought that the previous episode
would have worked well as a final episode too, and as for Episode 4


I did think it felt a bit rushed though, they seemed to dart around from one place to another very quickly which made it a bit confusing trying to remember who was where, nice to see all the different factions coming together though, sort of!

I thought there was a little too much trudging through the snow in Ep6. Ep7 made up for it.
