The episode speeds through Jaime Lannister’s “trial”, and everyone gets in their not-goodbyes as the White Walkers inexorably bear down on Winterfell. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I don’t know how to wait a week to watch a show. I don’t know how to do it anymore. What is this feeling?! Sunday seems like it’s a long ways away but, at the same time, I’m kinda into it, like rubbing a bruise.  Read Full Intro

SPOILERS OBVIOUSLY Lainey and I were texting after the Game of Thrones premiere, and one thing that came up was the length of Jon Snow’s first dragon ride. Lainey was like, “They’re just showing off their VFX” and “Where’s Ghost”, complaining that the moment was too long, but I loved Jon’s first flight, for a lot of reasons. Full Story

SPOILERS OBVIOUSLY After an interminable wait—what was it, five years? Don’t correct me, it FELT like forever—Game of Thrones has returned for its final season. This episode was, as many first-of-the-season Thrones episodes are, mostly a table-setting episode.
