As refreshingly awesome as it was to have the action centered on one location in last week's "Blackwater," last night's season finale felt necessarily rushed. David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have split up four major narratives into twice that, and with most of those demanding some sort of end point, even the extra ten minutes of "Valar Morghulis" flew by.
Some of the series' principals are coming to grips with the aftermath of the Battle of the Blackwater, while others deal with other crises, all within the larger framework of the war. To say nothing is resolved would be a lie, but it's clear that actions taken in the most recent installment are going to have far-reaching implications.
Also, did you hear Khal Drogo was back? Well, sort of.
