Game of Thrones - Episode by Episode #39

Remember the episode "Blackwater" two seasons ago, which showed Game of Thrones could be Peak Television Quality if it were to focus on a single location for the entire episode? Well, what happens if they try again except instead of focusing on multiple plot threads they narrow down to one, amp up the supernatural, and even stuff more action into it?

Game of Thrones - Episode by Episode #40

Finally, I have watched 40 episodes of this show and gone through half the seasons, so I am invested enough in this series to see how it ends. So far, I'm both stunned at how many characters have met an early demise and yet at the same time surprised that a lot of the fantasy elements have been muted. This means the show is about to hit a turning point, but before that, there's a season to close out...and even more exits, and I don't mean just deaths.

After all, episode 9, while action-packed, was not the emotional thrill ride the showrunners intended. What does that mean for the final episode of Season 4?
