In the final scene of the epic, almost 90 minute long "Game of Thrones" season finale, we finally see what has become of Viserion.

You stand accused of murder. "Lord Baelish?" Sansa asked. Their rage was driven by the thought that Aerys (II) was protecting his son and crown prince, Rhaegar (who was thought to have kidnapped Lyanna Stark, Robert's betrothed and Ned's sister) by killing Ned's father and brother. Locations are being scouted and secured in Northern Ireland (where they shoot most of the wintery scenes in the show) and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau has spilled that he's heard shooting starts in October.

The problem was there was so much for them to catch up on. Somehow, although this information was utterly unimportant to Sam at the time, he's able to recall the details to Bran Stark, who's now the Three-Eyed Raven.

It lead to the storyline slowing down dramatically. Though we haven't seen him die yet, Twitter is already mourning the possible death of Westeros' favorite redhead, and these tweets about Tormund's death are equal parts heartbreaking and hilarious. And we learned this season that Rhaegar and Lyanna were properly married meaning that Jon is not a bastard. It was a very satisfying moment, to see him exposed as a coward and for the nobility of the Starks to pay off in a good way. This amount of power in his lineage, plus his resurrection, suggest that Jon is the Prince Who Was Promised, the prophesied hero who will save the world from darkness, which is just what he wants to do.

Worst of all, when these revelations did occur, it seemed lazy. When Jamie comes to know of the evil intentions of the woman he loves, he is disgusted with her and rides North. Looks likes Cersei's pregnancy wasn't enough to keep Jamie there.

Queen Cersei uncharacteristally declares that she will get her troops to fight alongside Daenerys - until she reveals in the end that she had been lying the entire time.

More to come as we continue to dissect this dense finale throughout the week...

When Sansa and Arya sent Littlefinger straight to all seven hellsTFW Sansa and Arya finally stop playing games and just do the damn thingTHOSE RECEIPTS THOLittlefinger: HAHA Arya...wait, WTF?!

We suspected it was coming.

The confusion makes sense. A lot of characters saw each other for the first time, and something that the fans have long clamored for, the "Cleganebowl", was heavily foreshadowed. What about Bran, did he finally let them know? To understand the importance behind the decision, remember that a name is never just a a name in Game of Thrones.
