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.

Episode Info

In the Season 7 finale, Jon, Daenerys and their allies have a tense meeting in King's Landing with Cersei, who is horrified by the evidence they brought from beyond the Wall, but isn't quite ready to commit to their cause.

Critic Reviews for The Dragon and the Wolf

Sunday's episode capped a season which proved the master storytellers behind "Game Of Thrones" are more focused than ever.

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.

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

For all of its risks, it was great to see [Cersei and Tyrion] in a room together for what could well be the last time.

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.

Shock twists, betrayals, huge revelations and a game-changing ending, all wrapped up in a feature-length bumper episode.
