Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The Last of The Starks is probably the most ‘Game Of Thrones’ episodes we’ve had in a long time. Yes it has action and loss but it also has backroom machinations, plotting and sideways looks a plenty. It also brings some of the issues that the previous season suffered from – namely the uber-compressed timeline making what could be very natural decisions and choices seem rushed. But to be honest any episode that followed The Long Night would struggle a little bit. That said the two deaths here were a surprise and will prove very effective for the story in the long run. So a solid episode overall.
Death Toll: Lots…. including a main character and a dragon
Worth The Wait: Yes.
Best Bit: Celebrations and machinations.
