While much slower in pace than the season that preceded it, "The Dragon and the Wolf" delivered satisfying conclusions to several story arcs, and masterfully set up the series' final season.
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?
It's only fitting that even at this late hour, the finale of the penultimate GoT season, The Dragon and the Wolf finds its core in a head-to-head meeting, and between a pair of lions, no less.
"The Dragon and the Wolf," regardless of how you felt about a seventh season that plodded along and often seemed more concerned with treading water than advancing a narrative, clarifies and focuses the GoT story.
It was an excellent episode, incredibly engaging, taut with tension and terrific performances, and it changed the landscape of this world completely - in some cases, quite literally.
What will be interesting to see is whether or not the show will try to play up some drama between Dany and Jon and their respective camps.
