"The Last of the Starks" was a fascinating lesson in how Westerosi official histories come about.
I didn't think the episode, called "The Last of the Starks," was particularly smooth overall.
[It] couldn't help but feel anticlimactic and setty-uppy, coming as it does in the narrative gully that naturally stretches between last week's exultantly fire-and-bloody spectacle
It is a little table setty, to be frank, but we can't wait to see who triumphs in next week's battle.
If it were a character, it'd be Gendry: It got down on its knees, drunkenly updated me on its latest victory, then tried to make me buy into the fact that moving on after fighting a battle against actual ice zombies is fairly easy to do.
The episode recaptured some classic Thrones qualities, really. With the tedious army of the dead turned to powder, the show can, in its final run, get back to what once made it great: very tense feasts.
We always assumed so many of these secondary characters would just be killed off, but nice to see them get a happy ending. Even if Tormund didn't get the girl.
Are you not dramatically satisfied? Because I'll be honest, I'm not, and they've got two episodes left to fix that.
The second half of the episode felt weirdly rushed for a show that took its sweet time taking in the post-apocalypse high.
No, Game of Thrones is not the same series that was when it started ... I've made my peace with that and I accept it for what it is, and not for what I want it to be. [Full review in Spanish]
