There wasn't LSH, iconic lines were mixed, Arya WTF and I had to erase from memory Mountain/Unella part, but besides the rest was excellent
Every scene with Cersei, trial with this music, revenge for WoS, coronation... Justice. Vengeance. Fire and Blood. ToJ and right behind it KitN! Deanerys finally sailing to Wasteros! That's a proper invasion! Better hide yourself Aegon!
Music, editing, cinematography (these beautiful symetric/centric frames) just wow. No, I still can't write more, I can't even think.
The music over the Faith scenes and over Cersei's coronation are two of the best, as well as the Stark track over the Jon reveal.
The music was incredible.
Loved Oleanna putting the Sand Snakes in their place. Dany and friends heading to Kings Landing The costuming! Cersei's dress, Oleanna's dress, Dany's dress. Lyanna telling the Northern Lords they basically suck. Glad to see House Frey basically done (I assume the show is not giving Frey more sons then two that become Frey pies). R+L=J confirmed I suspect Sansa doesn't stick around in WF. She and Littlefinger did not look happy about Jon's promotion. Especially since the Vale bailed them out. Davos was excellent in the scene with Melisandre. Wonder where her next destination is and if Jon will regret sending her away. Cersei basically wiped out House Tyrell and after she and her brothers pass on, I suppose she has House Lannister on death watch. Poor Margarey, Loras and Mace...RIP.
Didn't like: No LSH. While I am glad to see Walder Frey dead in the same way Catelyn got her throat slashed and stabbed in the back (kind of symbol for what happened to Robb)...LSH would have been a great opportunity and a shocker for the show...missed chance there. Cersei's lack of reaction over Tommen's death, just seemed odd. KiTN scene didn't do it for me the way it did it in 1X10. Guess this show/books has hardened me. Oldtown could have waited until next season
Sansa looked happy with Jon's coronation and even nodded with approval to him. It was when she turned to little figure that her face turned to worry. I think she looked afraid of what LF would do to Jon, now that Jon is in his way.

-By far the best opening 15-20 minutes of any episode the show has done (at least that I can think of off the top of the head). Lena Headey (and Anton Lesser) absolutely owned it, her coronation was awesome. Light of the seven is the best OST since season three imo. I remember Cersei being squeamish about torture in the book so the Septa Unella scene didn't quite work for me. Tommens death was also kind of weird but those are the only things KL I didn't love. -Also really enjoyed The North (except for LF, Fuck off and die) Davos and Melisandres scene was just brilliantly acted from Liam and Carice. It seems obvious that Mel and Aryas paths will cross again now -Lyanna Mormont almost made up for how bad they have fucked up the northern lords, almost. White Wolf! I can dig it. -Mereen was fine, nothing spectacular but I'm happy with Daenerys progression this season. -Some other random thoughts: Dorne, meh. Samwells scene was decent, I enjoyed seeing his love for books. Must have been heaven for him. Aryas scene was satisfying obviously but I'm kinda jaded by how they've handled the faceless men stuff. Seeing Lord Walder compare himself to Jaime was hilarious.
