I'm sure I'm not the only one - but it feels like everything after this episode is going to be a bit of a letdown. As Jim mentioned in the podcast, THIS was the battle that actually mattered to 99.9% of Westeros, not one with Circe. EVERYONE had an interest in defeating the Night King, which is going to make every battle after that seem kinda petty. Besides Dany and Jon - who in their right mind is going to want to march south now for another fight? What a disappointing death it would be to survive the craziest zombie battle in 1000 years, only to get smoked by some Golden Company rando to settle a (at this point) seemingly-frivolous dispute over a sword chair - the stakes are just so much lower? This show has shrunk a story that everyone in Westeros cares about to a story that no one in Westeros cares about. Don't get me wrong, I want to see how Circe's story ends up too, I just feel like they put the wrong story-line ending first...
