It’s been a long wait, but the hugely anticipated fight between the Mountain and the Viper came to pass in epic fashion and The Cast Beyond the Wall is here to see it through by giving the legendary Oberyn Martell a worthy sendoff. It’s been eight episodes in the making and the question that everyone wants answered is: does the fight live up to its reputation? We look at that very question and dive right into it, but before we get to the TV fight of the decade, we discuss many of this week’s series-altering events.
The jig is up and Jorah’s early spy games have been revealed. In true Game of Thrones fashion, the reveal is swift and painful for the ever loyal bear knight and we debate whether Dany’s ethics really make sense. Elsewhere, The Vale is getting a twist as Sansa steps up to reveal herself as a force to be reckoned with. Has she finally learned how to use her skills and talents? Will Littlefinger fall head over heels for her? Things are heating up as this shadow player makes his next move toward the throne.
Next week’s episode, The Watchers on the Wall, is preparing for something truly epic and we head north to see how all of the dominoes, including the Boltons, are being set up for the season endgame.
