The Game of Thrones The Dragon and the Wolf

After last week’s disappointing and heavily maligned episode, I think Game of Thrones roared back with a vengeance in the season finale.  There were quite a few problems with the last episode as I highlighted on my blog, but this show has a way of righting the ship in a hurry, and this episode made Read More…
