I can't even imagine anything in the final season surpassing it. The opening 16 minutes is still absolutely jaw-dropping (16 straight minutes!), and the whole episode is just filled with beauty and lovingly-crafted touches and perfect lighting and truly inspired shots. Sapochnik set a bar that seems almost impossible to reach (except perhaps by himself in Season 8). The difference between Sapochnik's episodes and 604 for example is... stark.But my goodness, Sapochnik knows how to get the best performances out of Sophie Turner. She is incredible at the end of "Bastards" and actually just as good in "Winds."

Jon hypothesizes that if you kill a white walker, all the dead that specific white walker has turned will fall as well. This is pretty much immediately accepted as fact by the group, which is our cue to do the same. Beric then points to the night king and says "kill him, he turned them all." One single dragonglass-tipped arrow could win the whole thing.
