I think that many people, myself included, are disappointed by what is on the surface of all of this. At first glance, last night's episode was pointless. As it is dissected more, I'm sure the "point" of it all will be much clearer, make much more since, and be much more apropos.
Snow, for example. I think the whole "Night's Watch" was a ploy to get Grey Worm to shut up, accept it, and move on. Those who knew Jon best knew it is what he wanted. It could have been Bran's plan the entire time to send him north of the wall, not to the NW. Even Jon didn't know that he didn't have to actually accept the black. I'll be patient and let the maester's figure this one out, and I'll just read from there.
