game of thrones alfie allen 'Game of Thrones' Season 2 finale 'Valar Morghulis': Was it better than 'Blackwater?'The “Game of Thrones” Season 2 finale ‘Valar Morghulis’ had a lot to live up to after the penultimate episode “Blackwater.” That was the episode that fans have been talking about since the series was first announced and it blew everyone away. So, did the finale live up?

Absolutely. Not only did we have (and yes, there are spoilers ahead) Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) and Margeary (Natalie Dormer) engaged and Robb (Richard Madden) married, but Winterfell was sacked and the young princes smuggled out to the wall. Arya (Maisie Williams) loses her friend and Danerys (Emilia Clarke) finally has her dragons back.

The most heartbreaking moment of all was Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) realizing that not only did his sister try to have him killed, but that he’d been demoted and no one cared what he did to save the city. Yes, his lady loves him, but he realized he likes the game too much to leave the city.

Check out the video review below, where we talk about not only the finale, but the season in general and what we’ve got to look forward to next year. How can it be a whole year away?
