On last night’s “Game of Thrones,” a North of the Wall-focussed episode that we expected to be snowy, wighty, and grunty, we got all that, and just a smidge more: Khaleesi tears, a swinging-lantern surprise, a knapsack full of gross intrigue. And yet, for some of us, this penultimate episode of the penultimate season of our show of shows underwhelmed; I got reports of a bird flipped at a television in Massachusetts. On the other hand, it’s hard not to love these crazy goofballs. Shall we?
Another excellently written review by the New Yorker :)
