The fire sword that Beric Dondarrion uses is actually real it had to be refueled every 2 minutes. See more »


While Jon's squad is battling the wights on the frozen lake, next to Beric, you can clearly see a man swinging his weapon at nothing. The animators obviously forgot to add a CGI wight as his opponent. See more »

[the Hound picks up another rock and throws it. It skids across the ice in front of the same wight. Unfortunately, it makes the wight perceive that the ice is solid]

Some epic scenes, but terrible writing
29 August 2017 | by (Armenia) – See all my reviews

***** Might contain slight spoilers *****

For me, this episode is one of the weakest in the entire series, with plenty of things wrong with it, but let's start with the good staff first.

The visual and sound effects are good, directing is fine, acting is as good as it was in the first seasons. Some scenes are epic, especially the end of the episode.

But everything else is straight awful. The dialog in the first seasons was much superior to what we see now. The drama between the characters, their motivations, cunning tricks and lies are either absent or terribly made. And the general plot writing is just horrible, not at all GOT level, more like Marvel movies with last minute saves and illogical events. The lack of the books shows vastly and the show writers are not able to write anything nearly as good as George R. R. Martin creates.

Generally, the show has gone downhill after season four, with only a few good episodes in season six, and one in each of seasons five and seven.
