Did You Know?


Emilia Clarke said in an interview that this episode would be bigger than Game of Thrones: The Long Night (2019) which was said previously to be the biggest episode due to the long battle sequence. See more »


Tyrion points out that many innocent people would be killed, unless Jaime persuades Cersei to surrender; Jaime replies that he never really cared for them. However, Jaime killed Aerys in order to save the same innocent people, and he also joined the fight against the army of the dead because he promised "to fight for the living." See more »

Why do a sloppy job with ultra fast forward of all plot timelines to move to a hurried conclusion. All this time spent(in years) cooking the perfect recipe for a potentially satisfying ending and now left with hardly any time to savor it. They should have paced it out to allow fans to mourn a minute or two for the characters they've been invested in for years. Could have been greater than it turned out to be- but folks will be asking why cut corners for the most successful show in recent years? If budget was a problem even crowdfunding would have been successful(not that HBO needs it)- such is the stature of the show.
