For the most part, I really enjoyed this season's finale. That being said, I was completely underwhelmed by the last 5 minutes. It's no secret that I don't like Daenerys but having this weird, Coca-Cola commercial-like scene where everybody's happy and lifting their new savior into the air really ruined the mood that was created by the rest of the episode and the season in general. Once again, I am left wondering when Daenerys is actually
going to have to face some type of difficulty on her journey. She wants something, she gets it without taking the time to consider the consequences, and to me it's gotten unbearable. Eventually these people are going to need to realize that, yes, she has freed them but she really has no idea how to take care of them or what she is doing. Is she just going to leave them when she sails across the seas to Westeros or is she going to take them with her so that they can starve and be slaughtered along the way?
Anyways, like I said, for the most part I enjoyed this episode. Charles Dance never fails to deliver a spectacular performance as Tywin Lannister and in this episode, he clearly reminds everyone who the real power in Westeros really is. I would like to believe that there was quite a lot of cheering across the viewing audience when Tywin dealt with Joffrey, proving that even a king can be put in his place. I would have liked to see more of Jaime's return to King's Landing, his arc this season has been so good and his character development was so interesting, that it seems a shame for him to have done so little in the finale.
It was also refreshing to see somebody in the south finally
take interest in what is happening north of the Wall. I can't wait to see what Davos and Stannis will do now that they understand that there are more important matters to worry about than some little brat on a throne that doesn't belong to him.
