Last night's GoT episode was a touching one, the calm before the storm. The camaraderie between all the characters, forced into a battle for all of humankind with the best circumstances they can muster (unfortunate that Cersei is blinded by her desperation to preserve her unborn child; impressive that Gendry was part of the blacksmithing team that churned out thousands of dragonglass weapons in, what I imagine to be, record time).
What do you do the night before your potentially ultimate battle begins? Drink, spend moments with loved ones, make love, tell stories, put aside old grievances, and think about the future (but cautiously, with a self-awareness that a future might not be a thing for you and your loved ones). Or maybe also throw tradition to the winds and give the most competent soldier you know knight status, even if she isn't a man. Or try your best to protect those children whose hearts want to enter the battle, who are forced an early maturity due to stark chances of survival in medieval times if otherwise. When a lot of the cast put aside their differences, scenes captured the humanizing moments, characteristic of the multifaceted versatility that makes GoT so engaging.
