True, but I also don't think ALL "happy endings" are off the table. GoT is pretty rough on the cast, but I can't see it going full-on nihilistic even at the end.

So while I'd be surprised to see both Daenyrs and Jon Snow survive until the end, and there's probably at least one more Stark to lose before the end, I could see something like Sansa becoming Queen of the North or Sam taking over House Tarley actually occurring.

I liked the final episode overall, but once again felt the impact of the curtailed season. Baelish's endless, genius planning all came to this... Found out abruptly with no contingency to protect him, begging to his lords from the Vale? Seemed underwhelming to me.

That said, Cersei's untrustworthiness was delightfully dastardly and the collapse of the Wall was immense. Overall, an entertaining season.

One blip remains in my memory -- wasn't there an undead version of Catelyn that's done nothing this whole time?

Peter, undead Catelyn was a book subplot. It never happened in the show, and as a result Beric Dondarrion is still alive, since apparently the Red Clergy can only animate one zombi at a time.

A fan theory that's been going around: now that the Night King has a dragon to ride, he can hop around Westeros and raise undead. The recent wars left a lot of fresh corpses ...

The undead Catelyn used the alias Lady Stoneheart in the books, and on the show Arya pretty much took up doing what zombie Catelyn did in the books: Namely revenge for the Red Wedding, and Arya's list.

Joe, I've also heard a fan theory that Bran will warg into that undead dragon.

There's another fan theory that Arya will use Littlefinger's face to get close enough and kill Cersei.

I buy the latter theory as plausible, but Bran taking over the zombie (or wight) dragon is a little hard to stomach.

My memory is probably playing deeply unfair tricks on my mind, but I could have sworn Catelyn returned as an undead version for an end-of-episode surprise a couple of seasons ago. Am I going crazy?

No, you're not going crazy. It's just wishful thinking. A lot of people were hoping for Lady Stoneheart. Instead the actress who played Catelyn moved on to the short-lived series RESURRECTION.

Doubtful.

Littlefinger betrayed House Lannister when he sent The Knights Of The Vale in to rescue Jon during the Battle Of The Bastards.  

Unless her plan is to be taken prisoner on sight.....

And everyone in the great hall of Winterfell saw Arya slit Littlefinger's throat.  Unless everyone in that room is sworn to secrecy, word may get out that Littlefinger was executed by House Stark.

Arya can get into King's Landing/The Red Keep better as an anonymous person.  It's still a big, busy city after all.

He didn't betray Cersei by sending the Knights of the Vale into the battle of the bastards, that was part of his agreement with her. After Littlefinger arranged the Sansa-Ramsey marriage, he was summoned back to Kings Landing by Cerseiwhere he told her that Sansa had resurfaced at Winterfell and that the Boltons had betrayed them by having Sansa and Ramsey marry. He then told her that he would take the Knights of the Vale north to destroy the Boltons, exactly what he did at the battle of the bastards, in exchange for Cersei naming him Warden of the North. So as far as Cersei knows, he did exactly that. Littlefinger told Sansa that he had proclaimed for House Stark but he isn't exactly an honest and reliable source of information, so he might not have done so publicly. Littlefinger would still have access to the Red Keep and Cersei would certainly want to talk to him in person about the situation in the North, so that would give Arya an easy shot at her if she were indeed to impersonate him.

This is the best tribute to a character I have ever
seen. If anyone knows where the music from the 2nd half
is from, please enlighten me
