I f***ing hate Thenns

→ MAY 31, 2015 Warning: Full spoilers for the episode follow...

Not THAT'S more like it. What an exceptionally savage and exciting final fifteen minutes. "Hardhome" actually sort of broke the "Episode 9 is the most exciting, impactful episode of the season" rule here. I'm assuming, of course. Next week could still deliver big.
