The Battle of Winterfell is in the books, and it was nothing short of extraordinary. HBO While there were a ton of elements in the episode fans keyed in on, there was one that really seemed to stand out. The episode was dark. Saeed Jones @theferocity The episode is very suspenseful but also, I can’t see shit. It’s too dark. #GoT 01:29 AM - 29 Apr 2019 Reply Retweet Favorite Not necessarily dark in tone (although it was), but literally dark. Devoid of light.
