Legit - those are my eyes at the end credits... just -- omg... I can't even...
Spoilers -k? Warned.
Ok, from the beginning - VERY very reminiscent of the Battle of Helms Deep (LOTRs) and the tension was so strong I couldn't breathe!
Such a great job, focusing on the faces and the people and the tension and then holy shit what the fuck ice wind and hail and The Red Woman and FIRE and then Charge and then NO FIRE and then RUN RETREAT and then stuff happens and I say a lot of curse words for awhile.
I was just so proud of everyone because after following them for so many years they are like my family - and I don't want them to leave me.
I was doing OK til Lyanna... oh gawd... Sobs BUT SHE WAS A TOTAL BADASS and wow.
Many moments of freak out and dragons and dragon fighting and me trying not to laugh because the Night King looked like he and his posse were getting ready to drop some beats. But then...Theon.... and then... hold breath dont even move or blink and here it comes and...
And then and then ... and I am like, well they are probably killing my family off soon and then...
And then... I stopped breathing for the rest of the episode.
Which had more tears and what not and watching Drogon circle protectively around Dany killed me again. And I had to stop breathing some more.
At the end they were playing an instrumental of a cello-y violin-y sounding 90s pop song? I hummed it the entire time and cannot figure it out for the life of me...Cold Play Viva La Vida? Nope, I found it... link at the end
Anyway... my predictions on the crypt dead happened and some of the key players are still alive but I was wrong about the Night King... BAD ASS ARYA.
Ok, I need some pepto bismol and maybe a run around the block to get rid of the adrenaline.
Also, found the song:
Not vicious or malicious
Just de-lovely and delicious
