Game of Thrones star foresees 'bloodbath' next year

Acilia Dean | 28 Agosto, 2017, 12:38

Quite the opposite. Game of Thrones has finally fulfilled the promise of its very first scene, setting aside the squabbles between men and women in favour of a more basic, primitive urge: to survive. In a surreal, "Walking Dead" moment, the nasty skeleton crawled on the floor, lashing out at the repulsed, freaked-out Cersei, and she seemed to get it, offering to call a truce with "the silver-haired bitch", as she refers to Daenerys, if only Snow would return to the North and refuse to take sides.

Grey Worm (Jacob Anderson) stands at the head of the Unsullied army outside of King's Landing as Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and the Lannister army make ready to attack, if necessary, at the beginning of Game of Thrones season seven episode seven.

SPOILER ALERT: Read no further if you have not watched the last episode of Game Of Thrones' 7th season. The most impressive and insane scene of the episode obviously comes back to the Night King riding Viserion which makes the Wall fall with its blue flames.

Having said this before, it nevertheless bears repeating: "Game of Thrones" operates at a level unlike anything else on television, coupling the spectacle of a theatrical blockbuster with the sprawling serialized drama of "The Sopranos".

Let's start at the start, then.

Season 7 has leaned even more heavily into the true nature of Jon Snow's birthright. Brienne and the Hound figuratively (not literally, calm down Tormund) kissing and making up. Again, we all knew it was coming, but watching a massive structure that has been standing for thousands of years come down so quickly made its mark.

Siblings played a big role in "The Dragon and the Wolf". It will no doubt be featured in Season 8 in all its chivalric pageantry.


"It complicates everything on a political level, on a personal level, and it just makes everything that could have been so neat and flawless for Jon and Dany, and it really muddies the waters", said showrunner David Benioff in the finale's "Inside the Episode" segment.

There were only seven episodes this season compared to ten for all of the previous seasons. He's built characters around prophecies that seem to have inexorable momentum. Arya steps in and kills Littlefinger and there is probably no one who will mourn his death. Bitch be insane. As she explains to Tyrion in their one-on-one meeting (that somehow doesn't end with him dead), she has never cared about the world; she has only ever cared about the people who matter to her. What a fitting end for the series' most frustrating character.

Theon grew some balls. So how is Theon going to find him?

Still, especially with regard to Missandei and Grey Worm and Dany and Jon, it's nice to be reminded that these characters are humans with actively beating hearts, for whom physical intimacy and deep emotion are not mutually exclusive. "I think I just wanted some sort of unseen, huge plot twist". Jon insists he needn't have one or the other - and this is an important foreshadowing of the struggle the young Stark-Targaryen will soon face himself. Their lovemaking deed was done in an erotic scene that was lengthy and explicit and concluded when Jon climaxed while shouting, "Oh, mother of Dragons!" Plus, he gave us Hodor, which is a lovely thing.

Sansa, empowered with the supernatural knowledge of her brother, the Three-Eyed Raven, strips the veil of falsities and lies right out from under his feet. After all, both Arya and Sansa noted how their father looked different, and we've seen that Faceless Men can sometimes wear the faces of the living. With Littlefinger's intensive manipulative history, Bran had no problem digging up the dirt on Lord Baelish, starting with that pivotal Season 1 moment when Littlefinger double-crossed Ned Stark in King's Landing, causing him to be wrongly accused, imprisoned and, eventually, decapitated. To say that Game of Thrones Season 7 finale was a wholesome episode that gave us everything we hoped for would still be an understatement. Even the Night King.

While we don't know for certain, it's safe to assume filming will once again be timed with the winter months. It's telling that since Jaime acquired his gold hand, he's shown honour and fairness, if we ignore a bit of casual incest.

Another season of Game of Thrones has come to an end. A flashy masterpiece of TV, yet one that shows its cut-corners and imperfect joints on careful inspection. Episode 7 is the ideal end to such a season because, for all its flaws and lack of precision, this is sheer fan-pleasing spectacle. Throughout the subsequent books, and then the last six seasons of the show, the theory grew firmer and firmer in many fans' minds.
