Game of Thrones Had Viewers Yelling at Their TVs

Acilia Dean | 14 Agosto, 2017, 21:27

After last week's dragon massacre, it was nearly a given that "Game of Thrones" was going to slow down for an episode. With increasingly few fan-favorite characters still alive, the showrunners chose to band them all together in R'hllor's great quest and send them out into the wilds of the north of Eastwatch-by-the-Sea.

The fourth episode of Game of Thrones ended with Jaime senselessly trying to hurt the Drogon but being saved from the dragon's breath of fire by a push into the water. Don't kill them yet. Instead, she is burning lords to ash along with their sons, and telling people she isn't there to murder immediately after massacring a bunch of people that were just doing their job.

Rhaegar here is Rhaegar Targaryen, a name that has come up a lot in Game of Thrones, but is somewhat confusing to non-book readers as he's never been seen in the show. Basically, she ain't gonna win.

In order to convince everyone that the Army of the Dead and the White Walkers are real, Tyrion comes up with the idea of bringing one of the dead to Cersei in order to gain her help. Even Qyburn's Scorpion failed to bring down Drogon, which was inarguably their best shot at beating Daenerys. Now that we know what did go down with Bronn and Jamie, we can move on to what's going on in Westeros.


Episode 4, "The Spoils of War", saw many casualties, but we didn't lose any major character. Of course, if he's just around because it's cool to have him back, that's fine with me. The two discussing Dany's "cruelty" over wine looked like a high-school girls' gang. Many choose to live, but they will follow the Mother of Dragons out of fear rather than love and respect. She also thought that there was some merit to pretending to work with Daenerys for the time being. Daenerys seemed to understand this moment was significant, but might not have picked up on the "why". He even touched the dragon and Daenerys was shocked.

Moving to Winterfell, Arya's relationship with her big sister Sansa Stark is becoming very icy as days pass by. She's pregnant with another incest baby!

"Eastwatch", the fifth episode of "Game of Thrones" season 7 was more about setting in motion what we all hope would be an intense upcoming penultimate episode.

Seemed a bit glossed over, but did anyone else pause and jump up and scream when Gilly (of all people) read that Rhaegar Targaryen had an annulment and married someone else. Ipso facto, Jon Snow (Kit Harington) is not a bastard but the secret Targaryen heir.
