Game Of Thrones season 7 episode 6 review: Beyond The Wall
Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 6 "Beyond the Wall" - Best + Worstseason episode how
It's been a topsy-turvy season for the HBO fantasy drama and tonight's episode, 'Beyond The Wall,' is just more evidence of that. I figured we'd at least get a compelling adventure with our 'Magnificent Seven' this week, but the episode's best moments were undermined by its too-tidy resolution and implausible fast travel. To make matters worse, the already terrible subplot with Arya and Sansa which I wrote about at length here was even more ridiculous this week. It's gotten so bad, I've actually stopped even liking Arya's character at this point. When you find yourself taking Sansa's side over her little sister, you know something is up. See there below?
Teeth-grinding tension. Whether it's the other side of The Wall or in the ostensibly friendly confines of Winterfell, there's no real reason to relax in Westeros. There's definitely not reason to let your guard down.

The game of thrones has always been less of a battle and more of an art. Although weapons and armies are essential tools for its players, statecraft and spycraft are the defining forces that govern its winners and losers. You rule or you die not based on how many men you have but on how careful and strategic you are with the powers at your disposal. And yet, as we head toward the endgame of the series , the strategies of its smartest operators and military minds appear faulty almost to the point of negligence. Rather than fighting either one battle or another, it forces them to keep both threats alive while putting their most precious assets at tremendous risk. But before the carnage comes, Jon and Beric, the two men resurrected from the dead by the Lord of Light, take time to ponder the deeper meaning of their magically extended lives. Why were they chosen, of all people?
It's become Game of Thrones tradition that the penultimate episode of the season is epic in scale, the crescendo to the season in terms of action, leaving the final episode to mop up its political fallout. With the show finale coming at them faster than an Ironborn fleet on the horizon, the creators have been at a sprint all season, every episode hurtling through plot gates and finding little time for the plot misdirection or character studies of earlier seasons. Episode 6 felt like the inevitable conclusion to this, going from 0 to in seconds with regard to pretty much every character and involving some bananas decisions that I just can't get my head around. Please allow me to get a ton of issues I had with 'Beyond the Wall' off my flame sword-cauterised chest so I can tell you why none of them ultimately matter:. Why was Arya so pissed about how Sansa acted as a teen that she hinted she would like to see her tortured? How did this trouble Sansa so much that she immediately began plotting to kill her own sister?
