The seventh season of "Game of Thrones" hasn't been easy to watch.


After a strong sixth season that had cohesive, thematic episodes that played out organically with the narrative (the Arya/Waif plot excluded, and even that can be forgiven now), the writers proved that they were capable of moving this story forward and ending it without the guidance of George R.R.
