Well, Season 4 finally comes to a end!
15 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

But the end is really just the beginning!

And I have to say, this episode left me a little bit conflicted on the inside. Right when the episode ended, I thought to myself, "That's it? That was pretty disappointing." But now, taking the past few hours to think about it, I really did dig this episode.

I won't mention any spoilers here, but a specific few scenes involving Tyrion may just be my favorite set of scenes in the show's history. And the continuation of the previous episode with Jon Snow meeting with Mance, and a little deus ex machina, that was another brilliant moment.

This episode really was jam-packed with great moments. I can't exactly put my finger on why I felt disappointed after finishing the episode. I believe it may just be because the season is over and so many things are unresolved. And I know that's fine because we still have more seasons. I just hate the fact that we have to wait another year!

This episode was great, I'm obviously overthinking it. I know I'm just depressed about the season concluding and I'll probably be less bitter when I rewatch it. And if an episode that I feel bitter about can still be a 9/10, then that shows how fantastic Game of Thrones really is.
