‘Game of Thrones’ Season 7 Finale Recap: “The Dragon and The Wolf”

What to do with a season of television that wasn’t particularly well-written, but was endlessly satisfying? So much of the quality of Game of Thrones Season 7 relied on the narrative infrastructure the show had already built. Season 7 added almost nothing new to its many storylines in terms of nuance, twist, or complexity, but it didn’t really need to. In the end, it was enough to watch the storylines we’ve been following for six prior seasons converge, tangle, and hit all of their inevitable, long-awaited story beats. It didn’t make for particularly narratively ambitious TV, but it sure was entertaining. This was particularly true of the Season 7 finale, which was arguably the best episode of this entire, paint-by-numbers season, even if all of the epic things that happened in its 79-minute runtime were things were events the audience already knew was coming. Game of Thrones may have built its reputation on the unthinkable murder of its main characters, but, seven seasons in, it’s playing by the same rules as most other TV shows. But it also has dragons and six seasons of carefully-constructed plot and characterization, which really does put it ahead of the game. READ MORE...

Game of Thrones Season 7 Finale Review: “The Dragon and the Wolf” Vindicates Long-Time Fans

Long time Game of Thrones fans have to be pleased with the Season 7 finale. Not only was it loaded with characters both reuniting and uniting for the first time, but long time fan theories were confirmed and the final season was set up to likely be one of the most epic, talked about seasons of the modern television era. It’s going to be extremely hard to top undead dragons. First, the peace summit at King’s Landing reunited the living Lannisters. A lot of characters saw each other for the first time, and something that the fans have long clamored for, the "Cleganebowl", was heavily foreshadowed. That was the favorite moment of the summit for me: Sandor and Gregor Clegane facing off. Putting all of these characters together was a treat for fans, and one of the most gripping, tense scenes on television this year. Plus the reunions between Brienne and Jamie, Podrick, Bronn, and Tyrion, and the brothers Clegane may have made all seven episodes of this season worthwhile. READ MORE...

'Game of Thrones' Season 7 Finale Recap: 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.

Game of Thrones Finale Recap: Who Will Be Queen of the Ashes?

Season 7 of Game of Thrones saw the war between Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) and Cersei (Lena Headey) heat up, while Jon Snow (Kit Harington) desperately begged everyone to care about White Walkers. In the finale of the season, everybody cares about White Walkers, but maybe they should be worried about Cersei. She proved it in the big meeting between the powers in Westeros that has become the central focus of Season 7. After Jon and his company went beyond the Wall to capture an undead wight to prove the White Walkers are a thing are real, he finally has a way of proving his big fear to the other major leaders of the country.
