    What did you find despicable about Sansa?

    Are you serious? Did you not see the stuff she did over the last 2-3 episodes that led to this ending. Jon got screwed while she got exactly what she wanted without doing any heavy lifting this season.

    Tyrion (Dinklage) owned the episode, which is right since he was always the star of the books and the series.

    That's just smart strategizing. Also a top-ranked player in the game of thrones: Bronn, who started the series as a common sellsword and ended the series as lord of High Garden and master of coin.

    I am serious and sorry I disagree. I didn’t think she was despicable at all. She was doing what she thought was best for her family. And Jon is responsible for his own actions, not Sansa.

    Jon is responsible for keeping her alive! If he didn't do what he did, Sansa would be dead. She is not a good person.

    One last twist is Arya sailing west across the ocean and confronting.... the Statue of Liberty. "You burned them all to hell, Dany, damn you! Oh, and what's this?"

    I think she’s more complex than that. But certainly not despicable in my opinion.

    Well, you and I have a different definition of the word "despicable" then and she isn't a good person which has nothing to do with being complex.

    It turns out it wasn't the Planet of the Apes, only the Continent of the Apes.

    Yup. I don’t think anything she did was despicable. And I do think she is a good person too. Guess we’ll just have to agree to disagree. Cheers. :)

    I like the fact that Jon said screw the Wall and left to go North with Tormund and the rest of the Wildlings.

    Maybe Ygritte has a sister. :)


    I think that Sansa was shaped by her experiences; so while I don't think she is a particularly good person, I don't hold it against her too much. And yes, she and Bronn both played the game quite well.

    If there was a song that would sum up the message of this episode it might be the Stones' You Can't Always Get What You Want as compromise was the order of the day. Two of the notable compromises were...

    A bit surprised that Greyworm accepted Jon's fate, but Sansa kept him alive with the threat of what remained of the North's forces.

    Regarding the North being independent; while it might be a bit of a tough pill to swallow for the other six kingdoms, the North did do the dirty work against the threat posed by the Night King and the White Walkers, so some leeway was in order.

    - Walter.

    Omg when they release this on disc they should have an alternate soundtrack option where, as the final episode credits roll they actually do play You can’t always get what you want. That would be pure gold.

    One other thought, nice use of the green twig in the snow to signal that the long winter is over. While the meaning was plain, they didn't linger on the shot, so it didn't feel heavy handed.
