During Jon's stand-off with undead Viserion, he avoids a burst of dragon fire by hiding behind a small rock. However, this would result in Jon's death, as Viserion's fire has been shown to be capable of burning through castle walls (and even through the Wall). See more »


Arya Stark: Take this.

Sansa Stark: I don't know how to use it.
Arya Stark: [quotes what Jon told her long ago] Stick them with the pointy end.

User Reviews

The biggest middle finger to fans in HISTORY!
2 May 2019 | by benwilliams1999See all my reviews

Firstly, massive credit to the music composer for this episode, the music was absolutely perfect, but that was about it. The visuals were great! But only on second viewing when having playback in 4k whilst also having the brightness on maximum, nobody could see what was going on at all throughout the episode if it wasn't in 4k quality, which is a horrible experience. The writing was as if they got a 9 year old with no knowledge of game of thrones to write it, the army tactics were absolutely tragic and the amount of plot armour is actually unreal, screw the final battle against Cercie, just let Jon Snow run at the Lannister army all on his own, his plot armour will save him.

Summarising, this was a gigantic middle finger to every single fan.
