I've been slowly re-watching and need to finish the second half of it to really form my opinion on it.The end of Season 3 of Twin Peaks is the greatest thing ever shown on television.
Back to GoT. Was Bran shown on the Iron Throne for the teaser pictures prior to the start of the season? If not, that's certainly the curveball they were going for for the finale. I'm glad it was him over Ayra though, which I felt would have been probably the worst choice out of the remaining characters based on her character arc.
