Grading

Stray observations

— It got a brief mention during the main body of the article but I think the new title sequence deserves more than a cursory glance. Starting at the Wall this time instead of King’s Landing, and with the plot now collapsed into two locations (as opposed to several), we get to have a deeper look into how the hidden parts of the Red Keep and Winterfell fit together. We also stop off at Last Hearth for the very first time, as the icy blue squares (representing the Army of the Dead) surround the former Umber homestead.
