The language Wun Wun speaks in to Eddison Tollett is the Old Tongue of the First Men, a language brought to Westeros over 12,000 years prior and extinct except beyond the Wall. See more »
In the last scenes, Wun Wun walks towards the sea, heading to the ship, but he disappears right after: as the cameras feature the boat moving towards the ship, Wun Wun can't be seen anywhere on the water. He simply vanishes. See more »

Episode 7 was good, not great, but good. There were some plot developments as usual, plot moves forward, but nothing that good. Sure, costumer, set design, acting is at their best, but something was missing.
Episode 8 gave us FINALLY that missing piece. WOW was the first word that came to my mind after witnessing this piece of art. Won't going to spoil anything, but this is hands down the best episode of season 5, and one of the very best of the entire show - it is THAT good. There were many great written exchanges in this episode, very strong acting us usual, and what an outcome. Sure, it's not the outcome yet, but what a spectacular, superbly directed, shoot sequence at the end. Kudos to all involved, terrific sequence, probably to big to wittiness it on a small screen - what other shows do something like that?
Overall, Episode 7 gets 8/10, and Episode 8 pure 10/10. "I think we are fxxxed" - that is probably was the first thought that came to John Snow's mind at the very end of this sequence.
