Looking forward to the final season. It's the conclusion of a story that I first started reading back in 2000 or so.

This episode relied mostly on interpersonal interactions and moments, which was a nice breather from the ending of the last season.

Although, seeing the dragon special effects, I'm continually amazed. They're better than the dragons in many movies. Even ten years ago, I couldn't have imagined a fantasy TV series being this successful, this acclaimed. Yet, here we are, with Game of Thrones finishing up, and a prequel, Lord of the Rings, and Wheel of Time series in the offing, all hoping to pick up the torch.

I watched the opener.

Good stuff.

Nice bit at the end- some good nightmare fuel imagery.

I liked the new opening. I'm guessing it's going to be a lot more customised per episode this season. In particular, we can probably expect to see that tidal wave of dark tiles from the Breach proliferating ever further across the game-board.

is this the first time the intro map went underground too? that and the spinning tiles was a nice touch

and I did like the Little Bear still has a mean growl to her - Lady Lyanna for Queen in the North!

Aegon Targaryen: Didn't I banish you from the north?

Mr. Seaworth: That must be liberating.
