I’m gonna say it — this season of Game of Thrones has been weak.
Though important storylines are developing, the episodes have felt light. Luckily, Sunday’s episode totally redeemed itself! Aside from the typical gratuitous sex and sexual assault themes, “The Gift” was packed with critical plot developments, top-notch acting, and cinematography that told the story as well as the writing. My favorite shots are below. (Minimal spoilers! Story-lines kept general.)
