"A lot of the problem is that a lot of people don't know how to tune their TVs properly," Fabian told Wired.

Jorah lost his life defending Daenerys. In fairness, it’s what he would have wanted. Maybe…

Theon, of course, sacrificed himself to save Bran. What a babe.

Which is how I felt after squinting for 82 minutes, tbh…
