The longest part of The Long Night was that panic-inducing, nail-biting, palm-sweating, 14-minute opening scene until the Army of the Dead extinguished the Dothraki in UNDER. A. MINUTE.
After that, it’s a bone-crushing, catastrophic clusterfuck for all. Thank the Lord of Light for Arya. My new Monday get-hype motto is going to be, “Stick ‘em with the pointy end.” Speaking of ends, a handful of third-tier protagonists, one sidekick and a big bad meet the God of Death. But let’s all pour out a little rosé for the giant-killer, Lady Mormont.
- Grey Worm is slippery
- SO much Dragonfire, but not quite enough
- The Night King smiles?
- So, is Arya Azhor Ahai
- Those goddamn crypts
- Shipping Sansa + Tyrion
- Arya jumped ALL the way over the shark
- Davos is confused
- Theon earns his honor, finally
- Beric Dondarrion serves the Starks
- Melisandre served her purpose
- Jorah serves his Queen
- Dany and Jon are not that special
- So, is Arya Azor Ahai?
- And More!
