Critic Reviews for The Dragon and the Wolf

After several weeks of uneven episodes, lapses in logic and nonsensical twists, Game of Thrones atoned for its sins by delivering a spectacularly epic Season 7 finale that provided one gasp-inducing moment after another.

Billed as a meeting of the minds, writers David Benioff and D. B. Weiss delivered a batch of parting shots worthy of a season-long buildup.

The finale moved quickly, powerfully and, for the most part, satisfyingly. The season finale helped explain why GoT is the most-discussed show on TV.

You came for blood? You got blood.

Not that it had ever truly been away but it was good to welcome the old, happy-stabby Game of Thrones back with a vengeful gleam in its eyes.

A satisfying end to a pretty touch-and-go season, no?

Named "The Dragon and the Wolf," the Game of Thrones season 7 finale is centered on what Jon Snow calls The Great War, and is filled with some epic moments.

The Dragon and the Wolf was a powerful conclusion to arguably Game of Thrones' best season yet.

The snow is falling and a dragon-riding demon is leading an army of the dead against the living, but a bookworm and a cripple are about to change the world. Funny old life.

Also, cuz I've just about lost my faith in everything else, I think the one pure thing I'm rooting for in this show is the Dothraki.
