As a fan of the books, I have to admit that I thought this finale was a bit of a letdown. No big shocker moments that I was hoping for. I had not read that certain events were being held for early next season. I would have much preferred that they had been the end of this season!!
I'm also not completely wild about the way they rolled out Reek. I happen to know someone that is in the middle of book 4 at the moment and that seemed like a major spoiler considering the way I recall that storyline being handled in the books.
Still looking forward to next season, but it seems like such a very long time to wait for events that I expected to occur this season.
