Anyone who thought they knew what was going to happen on the season finale of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” were surely in for a surprise as the jumbo-sized episode delivered plenty of shock and awe.

A somber scene opened the finale as the nobles of King’s Landing dressed in their finest for the trials of Loras (Finn Jones, “Sleeping Beauty,” 2014) and Cersei (Lena Headey, “300,” 2007). Of course, High Sparrow (Jonathan Pryce, “Tomorrow Never Dies,” 1997) donned his very best potato sack for the proceedings in which Loras flat out confessed to all of his so-called crimes and declared he would accept whatever punishment the gods deemed just. He also renounced his claim to Highgarden and abandoned the Tyrell name.

Naysayers who’ve been complaining about the slow pace of the past few “Game of Thrones” episodes were shut down with an action-packed episode 9, which aired Sunday night on HBO.

Many likely expected the episode — aptly titled “Battle of the Bastards” — to open with Jon Snow (Kit Harington, “Pompeii,” 2014) and Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon, “Misfits”), but the show opened in Meereen where Daenerys (Emilia Clarke, “Terminator Genisys,” 2015) and Tyrion (Peter Dinklage, “The Station Agent,” 2003) handily disposed of the Great Masters, with the help of a few dragons and the Dothraki of course.

Last night’s episode of HBO’s sweeping fantasy drama “Game of Thrones” was oddly satisfying, despite the lack of the show’s trademark shocking twists and turns. Well, it wasn’t completely devoid of shock factor as some characters met brutal ends, but for “GoT,” it was still a rather tame episode.

Lady Crane (Essie Davis, “The Babadook,” 2014) opened the show with another killer performance, after which she found Arya (Maisie Williams, “Dr. Who”) bleeding in her dressing room. She mercifully bandaged her up and gave her some milk of the poppy. (more…)

For better or for worse, things are beginning to fall into place in “Game of Thrones,” which aired Sunday, June 5, on HBO. As the series approaches its finale, many characters are preparing for their endgame, whatever that may be.

Viewers were in for a surprise when HBO started the action with a “cold open” — a scene before the opening credits. The seventh episode of the season immediately rewarded “Deadwood” fans for their patience with a look at Ian McShane as a pacifist septon known as Brother Ray, a far departure from his role as foul-mouthed pimp in the aforementioned series. In the opening scene, he was shown leading a commune of fellow peaceniks who appeared to be building a church. Right before the credits rolled, viewers got a glimpse of Sandor “The Hound” Clegane (Rory, McCann, “Alexander,” 2004), whom Arya (Maisie Williams, “Dr. Who”) left for dead at the end of last season. Brother Ray attempted to council The Hound against violence, but the fallen knight still seemed skeptical.
