All the biggest moments from this week's 'Game of Thrones'

Acilia Dean | 14 Agosto, 2017, 14:34

Gendry is now a grown man, and although he lost his token bull's head helm, he made himself a hammer that looks an very bad lot like the one his father used in battle to kill Prince Rhaegar Targaryen. More than that, she enjoys using them and witnessing the destruction they unleash a bit too much.

After years of theories and fan speculation, Game of Thrones gave us an answer to a monumental question, and the ramifications are Wun Wun sized: Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark were legally married. Meanwhile, they have to secure a meeting. It's even more moving when you think about the fact these men are both bastards, which they surely will find kinship over (even if Jon might not really be a bastard after all).

That's right - the Queen of the Iron Throne has a brand new heir on the way, but this time, she's done trying hide her children's true heritage.

It's also going to make her way more paranoid than she was before.

But that all changed in "Eastwatch" when Davos made a pitstop in Flea Bottom to recruit Gendry to Jon Snow's cause after smuggling Tyrion into King's Landing to talk to Jaime.

Also setting the figurative air alight was the tension between Arya and Sansa, though this was an entirely negative crackle. Arya accuses Sansa of preparing for leadership, should Jon not return to Winterfell, insisting that Sansa secretly wants to rule. As we saw this week, Varys does battle with his, even if he hasn't always listened to it. Littlefinger has perhaps showed glimmers of decency, but there is usually a greater end he is playing toward and discrediting Arya is one step toward that goal. After Littlefinger leaves his room, Arya enters and searches for the scroll.


Jon has a lot of notable allies by his side north of the Wall - Tormund Giantsbane, Davos Seaworth and Beric Dondarrion, to name a few - but he could need more if Gilly's little revelation comes to light this season. It's a message written by Sansa (but actually by Cersei) when she was a captive in King's Landing, asking Robb to bend the knee to King Joffrey. Maybe a power-hungry Sansa will stop supporting Jon and try to take over as leader, with Littlefinger's army behind her? He should instead worry exclusively about its meaning - that Sansa (and, she presumes, Arya) are under Lannister control, and will die along with Ned if anything goes wrong. Along with Jorah, they set sail nearly immediately while Sam packs his bags and leaves the Citadel.

Before they leave, Gilly reads about annulments in a book. Her dragons are #Drogon, named after Khal Drogo, Rhaegal, named after Rhaegar Targaryen, and Viserion, named after Viserys Targaryen. AKA: Jon Snow's parents.

"Death is the enemy".

The more risky part of this madcap plan, though, was undertaken by Jon Snow and Jorah Mormont, freshly cured and returned to his queen's side only to immediately leave again.

Except Davos doesn't hate anyone, he's just a lovely guy with a lovely attitude all the time.
