Where were you when the Wall of Westeros finally came down?

Based on record high ratings, it would seem most of you were in the comfort of your own home, ideally with a good horn of ale and a meal worthy of an epic George R.R. Martin writeup, watching the season seven finale of Game of Thrones, called "The Dragon and the Wolf." For our part, we know where we were at the time: deep in the proverbial trenches, sorting through the rubble of all the destruction and developments spinning out of the riveting season finale.

We walked away with interviews and deep dives aplenty, old theories confirmed, news ones developed, and our eyes quickly drifting toward the future. There are no new Game of Thrones episodes left for us to enjoy in 2017, but there's plenty of fallout to feast on in the meantime. Read on for all of our stories from finale week.
