Smart writing, a few surprising plot developments, and an ominous final scene make "Valar Morghulis" a satisfying conclusion to a stellar season.
It's just a bunch of stuff that happens, in the words of Homer Simpson. Still, it's a compelling bunch of stuff that happens.
Still, much to chew on from this season finale of this fantastic second series, even if it didn't quite hit the heights of episode nine.
"Valar Morghulis" felt as much like a premiere as a finale... Rich, sweeping, and surprisingly emotional, it managed to be the best episode of the show to date.
The Game of Thrones season two finale begins the way 'Lost' began -- and ended, for that matter -- with an eyeball, real close up, looking around.
It looked like "Valar Morghulis" was going to have a tough job topping the spectacular "Blackwater", but in the event was perhaps even more satisfying than last week's battle for King's Landing.
There were some wild divergences from the novels, yet I found them all quite satisfying and well done enough that they're actually welcome.
Game of Thrones finally came to its thrilling finale, tying up some loose ends but unravelling far more for us to ponder over until next April.
I enjoyed it and felt some parts were completely awesome, but I could feel the rush to visit each character and wrap up storylines.
Valar Morghulis suffered from having to follow the tightly focused "Blackwater"..._ _But in a few individual moments, "Valar Morghulis" was completely, utterly, powerfully honest. And I'll try to focus on moments like that.
Game of Thrones doesn't feel like a bunch of actors playing at fantasy; it feels like a world inhabited by real people. And that, after two stellar seasons, may prove to be the series' biggest attribute.
