I think the season wasted the first two episodes and then the third episode was too dark to see and the fourth episode was about nothing.
I will be very disappointed if the show ends with some politically correct "council." The only way for this show to go out with a bang is for the writers to create a totally shocking final episode. It has to be a mind bender... like wow, I never saw THAT coming.
If Bran is sitting on the iron throne, like who really cares. But the secret of Bran's warging during that great battle has to be revealed. If he goes back to the past..... and he saw something totally remarkable, well THAT would be a great ending. But it seems like the season is crawling to an end and everybody was bored, even the actors who could not even see a misplaced coffee cup.
The final episode of a series is always scripted to be phenomenal (Six Feet Under, The Sopranos, Bob Newhart, etc.). I still maintain that this is George R. R. Martin telling this story of his ancestor, Sam, to his grandchildren on a Christmas Eve and when he puts them to bed he says "Go to sleep and stay warm. Winter is coming."
