Episode 6 was such a stone-cold disappointment that I approached the finale with trepidation, and found myself pleasantly surprised. I feel particularly vindicated in my continuing support for Theon Greyjoy. I had faith that he would pull himself together and gather the courage to rescue his sister, and I’m beyond thrilled to see that faith justified. His scene with Jon Snow was one of the most beautiful moments in the series so far, and while Kit Harington did a fine job, **Alfie Allen continues to bless us with phenomenal performances that are, above all else, immersive and honest**. I’ve never believed a character more than I believe Theon Greyjoy.
