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]

I just want people to remember mess like this when they start praising the writers for how powerful the women on Thrones are.

The best word to describe what went down in this episode is "bizarre."

The problem is that most of the good dialogue of earlier seasons is taken from the books. Once the show outpaced the books, while the writers try their best ... the dialogue-driven episodes just don't carry the show as well as they used to.

While it appears another battle might be imminent, I'm already thrilled that this season has taken the time to come full circle and get back to basics with its political intrigue.

I found this to be a supremely satisfying hour of feel-bad television.

Parts of the episode were great but its flaws really stood out. I hope the final two episodes don't feel as rushed.

I don't mind the deaths and heartbreak (if anything, I relish Game of Thrones getting its teeth into things a bit), but hope the final two episodes have slightly better pacing than this one did.

Dany isn't going to take the loss of yet another longtime and loyal friend calmly. It was the perfect move for Cersei and it's going to take a long time to clear that burning stench out of King's Landing.

Ultimately the frustratingly bad writing of Sansa and Brienne, coupled with the racially fraught implications of Missandei's death, make this episode feel like a huge letdown, and a glaring reminder of just how far television has to go.

GOT no longer moves at its own pace, but at one which Weiss and Benioff impose on it. Bad news. [Full Review in Spanish]

Daenerys' evolution into the monster she's fought against has suffered similar problems. As a narrative idea, it's great. But in actual execution it's been roughly sketched.

Game of Thrones seems to be suffering from a similar hunger to arrive at its goal. Even more so than in Season 7, showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are playing the part of Daenerys, so fixated on the finish line...

"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.

Kimber Myers

"The Last of the Starks" begins in mourning with a few sad moments, but this is a mostly sunny 80 minutes compared to "The Long Night." Well, except for that last 20 minutes.

A dense chapter, verbal combats and in many ways at ground level. [Full Review in Spanish]
