It's been a hell of a first season, a genuinely exciting piece of television.

As always, my favorite moments came in those of quietness -- sometimes, "Game Of Thrones" is at its very best when it allows two players to work together to create a brilliant scene.

Emilia Clarke sold the character [Daenerys], as an emotional being and a bad-ass dragon lady, better then ever in this finale.

At drawing the huge from the particular, on the other hand, and giving panoramic reality to an enormous sweep of the imagination (not to mention being ruthless with principal characters), Game of Thrones has been wonderfully successful.

Considering the number of storylines that had to be (temporarily) wrapped up, the writers did a great job of making sure that almost everyone got to finish the first season in style.

Aside from some minor complaints, the finale was still extremely satisfying.

The finale ramped up the stakes for each of the characters we've grown to love (and love to hate) while still setting up for season two without appearing to be fixated on setting up the second season.

On the season one finale for "Game of Thrones" loose ends were tied up and woven into new threads.

Game of Thrones showed how hard-earned character development plus smart and imaginative storytelling can set up a second season while closing out the first with a rousing end.

Tonight's episode was evidence that there's still plenty of story to play out and a lot of unfinished business to attend to.

I loved that the Commander of the Night's Watch wants Jon Snow and Ghost to ride with the men north of the wall. He knows what a value Ghost has become and it can't help but make me smile.

We moved the plot forward - though I'm sort of loathe to describe the action in a linear way. Other shows move "forward." This show just moves ... outward.

Impressively, the addictive appeal of the entire first season of Game of Thrones can be summed up with one titillating and 100-percent true statement: It ended with well-wrought CGI dragon babies crawling across the torso of a beautiful, naked woman.

The Game of Thrones finale only made me more interested in what's coming next.

From Mirri Maz Duur's bitter rejection of Dany's "mercy" to the confirmation that Jaime is more than half in love with death, this was an episode which asked its characters which they valued more: life or death, survival or glory.

It... kicked all kinds of ass, effectively wrapping up many story lines, setting them in motion for the second season and pulling off one of the funniest scenes ever put on film. Not a bad way to go out.

The ruminative material showed some of the strengths the series has developed over the book at this point in its run.

"Fire and Blood" was a mostly satisfying romp, but if you're looking for loose ends to be tied up, this wasn't the show for you -- it's almost cavalier how much they know they're getting a second-season pickup.

Dragons. It was the scene that fans of the books have been waiting for-and it was awesome.

Holy naked girl with dragons, Batman, was that a finale or what?
