They have spent this season writing themselves out of a long list of corners that GRR Martin spent 20 years writing them into. Some of the getting out of those dud plots may be a bit abrupt or unlikely and it looks like they have been saving a bit of money with small scale scenes. On the other hand, they have done what they needed to do and been fairly entertaining doing it. It looks like it will all pay off in the next few episodes.
