HBO's Game of Thrones episode 706, "Beyond the Wall" has been extremely polarizing for all of us fans, which, say what you will, isn't something that you want to be saying about the penultimate episode of the penultimate season of the biggest TV show in the history of the world. Are people too focused on picking nits? Or has the storytelling really gone off the rails this season? Whether we're seeing the first signs of shark jumping or just hitting a rough patch remains to be seen, but we discuss the good, bad, and ugly of this week, including the many fine conversations between our heroes, saying good bye to characters both red shirted and beloved, and arrive at the conclusion of the fairly silly plan to convince Kings Landing to join in the fight against the Army of the Dead. Next week will be better. Please?
