    The Bells

    For a battle that's been years in the making, that was more than a little disappointing. 

    From a cinematography standpoint, Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 5 was a stunning affair, but the action in the installment felt like a desperate attempt to start the process of wrapping things up ahead of the series finale. 

    If you watch Game of Thrones online, you know that Game of Thrones Season 8 has felt like a complete and utter rush job, and that's not the best way to end a show that's still going to be talked about years down the line. 

    Daenerys: Far more people in Westeros love you than love me. I don’t have love here. I only have fear.
    Jon: I love you. You will always be my queen.
    Daenerys: Is that all I am to you? Your queen?

    Episode 4

    Game of Thrones is burning through the story at this stage!

    On Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 4, the survivors of the Battle of Winterfell partied the night away, and rightfully so. 

    What else is there to do when you survive a literal battle with the dead?

    There wasn't much for Daenerys to celebrate. She lost a lot of her men, a man who defended her to his last breath, and her claim to the Iron Throne was on shaky ground. 

    It's hard to believe it, but it seems like the writers are setting Daenerys up to fail at this final hurdle. 

    Her journey has been eventful. She's raised three dragons, broke many chains, and survived various near-death experiences. 

    Now, she's the most vulnerable she's ever been, and she still has some people on her side. 

    Daenerys is so consumed with taking up residence on the Iron Throne that she was ready to put Drogon's life on the line mere moments after Rhaegal was...

    Not Today

    Well, that didn't play out as expected.

    Then again, this is Game of Thrones, and it's never been predictable. Why would it start now?

    Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 3 featured the battle of Winterfell, and it did not disappoint. There were so many payoffs during this eighty minute spectactular that it's hard to put into words how well it translated to the screen. 

    Let's start with the biggest WTF moment of the night:

    Arya Stark defeated the Night King. 

    The preview trailer for Game of Thrones Season 8 strongly hinted at Arya dying during the battle, and there were many moments when she could have potentially been wiped out during "Not Today."

    The Lord brought him back for a purpose. Now that purpose has been served.

    The Last Good Day

    That was a little bit more subdued than I thought it would be.

    Much like Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 1, Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 2 was an hour that focused on the set-up for the battle to come.

    That's not to say it was a lousy installment. Game of Thrones Season 8 is trying to live up to the tremendous hype. In doing so, it's honoring the past as the series reaches its conclusion. 

    We're heading into the battle of Winterfell on a somewhat somber note. The people are well aware that they are going to be greatly outnumbered by the Night King's minions. 

    All they can do is hope for the best, and have as many people wielding weapons when the battle gets underway.

    When I was a child, my brother used to tell me a bedtime story, about the man who murdered our father. Who stabbed him in the back and cut his throat, who sat down on the Iron Throne and watched as his blood poured on to th...

    Season 7 Finale  The Wall Comes Down

    The Great War is here. The Game of Thrones finale "The Dragon and the Wolf" gives us the moment we've been waiting seven seasons for: the Wall is down and the Army of the Dead is coming.

    While "The Dragon and the Wolf" is mostly about the upcoming war with the White Walkers, the Game of Thrones finale has some great moments for dragon and wolf (or Targaryen and Stark) fans from Rhaegar and the Lyanna's wedding to Jon Snow and Daenerys finally hooking up. And this has huge implications: Jon is the true heir to the Iron Throne and is sleeping with his aunt. Meanwhile, while everyone's attention is on the North, Cersei is strategizing the war with Daenerys. Plus, Littlefinger's schemes finally caught up with him, and Theon finally proves himself. It's one hell of a finale.

    Will Cersei Agree to a Truce?

    Game of Thrones' "The Dragon and the Wolf" begins with everyone getting ready for the big meeting in King's Landing. Grey Worm and the...

    The Dragon and the Wolf

    The wall is no more. 

    For seven seasons, the wall has kept the villains who matter at bay, and in a thrilling turn of events, Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 7 took that obstacle away. 

    That means the Night King, his army, and Viserion (and his eye watering blue flame) are free to venture to the likes of Winterfell and King's Landing, and that means the war is officially a go. 

    The Night King having Viserion at his disposal was predictable when you consider the fact that he brought him back as one of his own in the closing moments of Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 6. 

    The new and bluer Viserion seemed a lot faster than your standard dragon, and that could give it the upper hand when it comes to the inevitable fight with Rhaegal and Drogon. 

    God, the sheer look of despair on Tormund's face when he realized what was going on was just too much. The chances he survived the wall being obliterated...

    Do Jon and the Group Capture a Wight? This Game of Thrones episode, titled "Beyond the Wall," gives us our biggest battle with the Army of the Dead to date! Daenerys says it best when she says you have to see it to believe it. The White Walkers are a formidable foe.

    Jon and the gang go on their mission to capture a wight to prove to Cersei that the threat is real during "Beyond the Wall." Of course, things are never easy on Game of Thrones, and the Army of the Dead quickly surrounds them and a brutal battle ensues. And after seeing that battle, there's no denying the threat is real. But is the fight hopeless? Jon and the others barely survive the battle. And that's before an undead dragon joins the mix.

    The Stark Sisters' Rivalry Reaches New Heights

    Back at Winterfell, Arya reminisces to Sansa about how she taught herself to shoot an arrow. She kept messing up until she hit the bullseye, only to find Ned watching and clapping. Even though it was against the rules, she was doing what...

    Death is the Enemy

    Going beyond the wall was always going to come with some major drawbacks. 

    On Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 6, Jon and his team continued their mission to steal a wight in order to take it to King's Landing and strike a deal with Cersei. 

    On paper, it was a terrible plan, but there was no other way to get Cersei on board with any sort of plan because, well, she wants all the power. 

    The polar bear killing the wildling early on successfully injected the scenes that came after with a sense of dread. It showed just how high the stakes were for everyone, and that they could die at any moment. 

    The lone walker and the wights patrolling finding the fire were scary because they could have alerted the Night King that people were beyond the wall. 

    It was fascinating that as soon as the walker was killed all but one wight died. Are we to assume that the wights are linked to the walkers, while the walkers are all linked to the ...

    Eastwatch

    Gendry is no longer rowing about in the waters of Westeros like a lost soul. 

    After years away, Joe Dempsie made his grand return on Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 5, and that was just one thing in a long list of remarkable developments. 

    Having a character just disappear is not good, and many fans thought he was forgotten. It was a welcome delight to witness him with the hammer. 

    It was a good way to reaffirm to viewers that he is his father's son, and it was an exciting development to have him literally under Cersei's nose creating weapons for the Lannister army. 

    While everyone else would have expected him to be forever and a day away from King's Landing, he was just sitting there, waiting for his time to come. 

    He's done lying about who he is and that was illustrated perfectly when he confirmed to Jon who he is after Davos told him to keep it all to himself.

    Living a lie for so long is something that ea...
