Unbelievably bad ending to the season...
10 May 2013 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Don't get me wrong; this is a great series! But only 10 episodes in a season, combined with slow pace is strange by today's standards. Furthermore, the last episode of the season is terrible! Multiple story lines are left open. Why? They are not all that interesting. I cannot understand this at all. I hope this is not going to affect the rest of the series as the start was very promising. Having said that, I do think the story goes from left to right without any need to do so. It's all a bit, well, bland. It could be so much better! A note for the writers: if you want to know how to end a season: go watch Game of Thrones.
