I've been wanting Little finger dead since season one, he and Cerci have been on my kill list from the start!

As the season built, either one of the Stark sisters killed other or little finger got taken out. I'm glad it ended this way.
No weaseling out this time. quick and dirty death.

I was worried that he would manipulate Sansa. He did try to go full weasel

One question needs to be answered.
Who gave the assassin the dagger that he failed to kill Bran with?
Littlefinger was in King's Landing at the time, 1500 miles away.
In the books, Joffrey hires the assassin and gives him the dagger from Robert's collection in the caravan. That's found out long afterwards, and maybe it's not true.

Winter is not the only thing coming…

Yes, Littlefinger's demise was one of the best GOT scenes in a long time. I knew that something like this had to be coming at the end of the previous season. The fact that Sansa knew that Littlefinger and killed Lady What's-her-name of the Vale made her a huge threat to him. If he couldn't control her, he had to get rid of her. Glad it turned out the way it did!

And it's about time the white walkers got something to take down that wall!

Although one wonders what their Plan B was if John Snow hadn't so conveniently delivered a dragon to them?

Probably one of those self for filling proficiencies.

Okay. So, Jon's mission to the wall yielded:

The Good--

-hes' still alive
-They captured a walker
-Dany is a believer

The Bad--

-one of the dragons is lost
-the dragon is made undead (a six-point swing)
-the walker-dragon destroys the wall, something the walkers might not have been able to do without it
-the Wildlings manning the wall, including Tormund are likely all dead, and might even be walkers now
-Winterfell, and the North are now toast.
-best of all, Cersie believes now too, and she is already plotting on how to use the Walkers against Dany and Jon.

So basically, had Jon not gone north of the wall for a sample, Dany would likely still have all three dragons, There would be no walker-dragon, the wall would still be intact, Tormund and the Wildlings would still be alive, the walkers would still be north of the wall, and Dany would likely have already implemented Plan-B, the torching of Kings landing.

Has Jon ever made a good decision? The guy's a disaster.

Very valid points. Good intentions don't always turn out that way I guess.

I don't get they they simply didn't just fly the dragon north. Fly low. Throw a net over a random walker and fly away. Given the average cruising speed of a dragon is MACH 3.4. They could have done it all and be back again before tea.

mandt2 Tormund most likely is alive since he wasn't on the wall section that fell.

It was all Hot Pie's fault. Per fans with nothing better to do:

A compelling theory.
