Even though there is no fights and action scenes in this episode but it is indeed as good as The battle of The Bastards episode. firs of all : the music... God! the music is good probably the best thing in the episode it will get you hooked from the first second. The events unexpected and perfect and very well done and brings moments we've all been waiting for and we find out about either the most famous theory is right or not. The acting is great as usual. and what really makes this episode great that it's full of important events and prepares for a great next season and it closes a good season in a great way. Finally, this is how drama should be made. great drama with great dialogues and acting.
