I liked how they wrapped a lot of things up in less than an hour. With only 6 episodes, they have A LOT to wrap up in a short amount of time.
To start! The theme playing as the soldiers and procession going into Winterfell was same as them played in first episode when King Robert and his crew marched on Winterfell. Arya watching procession, seeing Jon, The Hound and Gendry was cool. The wry smile on Danerys' face as the Dragons flew over head and over Winterfell.
Sansa's cold attitude represented the North well I thought. She was the embodiment of the cold reception of a southern queen.
Jon hugging Bran and saying "You're a man!" and Bran replying "Almost." The double meaning there was heavy.
The North had better suck **** up pretty damn quick and get over themselves or they are gonna be toast.
Arya and Jon meeting was excellent! brother and sister who became soldiers and comparing weapons and stories.
Remember last episode last season when Brienne and The Hound compared notes on Arya. The Hound had a smile on his face. He recognizes Arya for what she has become. I suspect he is a bit proud to have been involved.
The Daenerys and Samwell scene was amazing. Knowing what happened and who Sam was that was expected from last season.
John got to ride his dinosaur (as my wife said) and who knew dragons were perverts!
Gonna be a whole lotta death next week. I can't wait.
