User Reviews

Should've been much better (very mediocre)
15 April 2019 | by KizayaSee all my reviews

The episode doesn't tell you very much, like, even if you didn't watch it, nobody could spoil you anyways because everything that happens in the episode was anticipated already before the season.

All that we've seen in the episode should've been in the trailer for the season. And to waste a WHOLE episode on "few reunion scenes", out of 6 episodes, that's too much wasted time.

The episode is NOT bad, it's just not what you would EXPECT from the opening of the FINAL season of (considered by most) the "BEST" tv show nowadays...
