Man, I wish I hadn’t used the word “satisfying” to describe last week’s episode, because good lord, tonight—tonight was the night Game of Thrones fans (to say nothing of A Song of Ice and Fire fans!) have been looking forward to since the series began.
Ice and Fire finally met in Dragonstone, and it was just as wonderful and powerful and awkward as I’d hoped it would be. Meanwhile, Cersei is already kicking Daenerys’ forces’ collective asses, while settling a lot of scores in some pretty brutal ways. Also, another (semi-happy) Stark reunion, and a sad goodbye to the show’s thorniest character.
Discuss your thoughts on the episode below—all spoilers welcome, of course!—and io9’s official recap will see you tomorrow morning.
