Last night's Game of Thrones season finale had some ups and downs — plenty more ups than downs, in my opinion — but I hope we can all agree that the music stole the show.
As much as I enjoyed several big scenes in last night's episode — chief among them the brutal throwdown between Brienne of Tarth and The Hound, as well as Hound actor Rory McCann's incredible final scene — my favourite part of the episode came at the end.
Arya Stark hopped a ship to Braavos, the camera swept out for an epic wide shot, and this killer version of Ramin Djawadi's famous theme kicked in, complete with a children's choir.
From 1:37 in particular: Hell yeah. It was a grand ending to an uneven but generally strong season, with the singing children echoing the Children of the Forest as well as Arya Stark herself, less a child than ever before, on her way to a new life across the sea.
Great final shot. Great final tune.
What did you all think of the finale? And more broadly, what did you think of this season?
