Well that sucks, and especially that they'll actually be pulling that Madmen crap and stretching out a season over two years. I'm all for tight, shorter seasons, but in that case, just run Season 7 as 13 episodes and full steam ahead.

Unlike the AMC show-extenders (which seemed to be primarily money and Emmy-motivated), this seems more like it might be a case of it-will-take-that-much-longer-to-make-them...

I would probably rather wait longer (year and a half? Nah, it'd probably be two full years... I see why they wouldn't do that...) and get 13-in-a-row than 7-wait-another-year-and-get-6 but whatever. We don't get to vote.

Breaking Bad took the extra year to make their last eight.

Mad Men and (now) Hell on Wheels had their last episodes sitting in a can awhile, waiting...

GoT will be more like BB... They're going to be working year-round, as always, but the final episodes are going to take more time to make.

So, more dragons and battles? If it's a production thing I agree, take the time needed. If it's HBO stretching the product then no.

Sounds like a production thing.

HBO (like the fans) would be happiest with more, more, more... But it's going to be more Benioff and Weiss' call, since they know best what their needs are..

I know they've been 'anxious' to wind it down for awhile, but it's tough to believe we can get to The End in 23 or so more hours of story.

Melisandre feeling so defeated by life that she undid her seductive pretense was my favorite moment.

Brienne and Sansa were pretty cool, too.

Mostly disappointed that Jon Snow is still dead.

Still dead. Weird.

Brienne and Podrick's rescue of Sansa and Theon was great, and I loved the pledges.

Always fun to hear Tyrion and Varys talk together.

Joras looking down and finding the ring was pretty incredible.

Liked the Dany/Khal Moro scene a lot.

Poor Trystane.

Loved Davos talking to Thorne through the door.

Out from 5 - Stannis.
Promoted up from Recurring - Jonathan Pryce as the High Sparrow.
