Game of Thrones

HBO | 9:00 pm

Season 7 offered fewer (not less!) episodes than previous editions, but it hasn’t skimped on pulse-pounding action scenes, including that dragon-borne aerial attack on the Lannister loot train. Then there were the big emotional moments such as the long-awaited meeting of Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen (Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke), not to mention the Winterfell reunion of Ned Stark’s three surviving children. After tonight’s season finale, fans must wait a year or more for the final episodes.
