With “The Children,” Game of Thrones delivered one of its most cinematic and epic hours yet (and also spent a mint on their CGI budget for this episode, surely). Unlike other premieres and finales, the show didn’t touch on every story line, and that was a very good thing. When Game of Thrones restricts itself to just telling a few narratives well, it’s a much, much better show. “The Children” also ran for a slightly extended length of time, which the series (and this episode in particular) desperately needed. And for once, Game of Thrones chose to end its season in a place of contemplation, rather than shock and awe. Hit the jump for more.
