Of course the wight dragon took down the wall. In Winterfell, Sansa confronts Arya. And if Gendry could run to Eastwatch, they must not have gotten very far on their journey before encountering the White Walkers. Their conversation was perhaps the best scene in the episode. But convincing someone of inherited wealth that there is climate change and actually getting them to do something about it are two different things, eh? If you're interested, in season 8. Her unborn child is there to make her see things differently and care about things she'd never expect to care about, but it wouldn't have felt right. Plus, Bran, before his Aegon bomb, got to provide some use as the Three-Eyed Witness to Littlefinger's crimes.
Littlefinger's breaking down and his transition to smug maneuvering into getting on his knees and crying, begging for mercy and love, absolutely humiliated and exposed after a lifetime of being the one in control, is some fantastic acting from Aiden Gillen, and he gets murdered by Arya by slitting his throat. Pod meets both Tyrion and Bronn again, and god it's pretty heartwarming and funny, especially when they finally do reach the Dragon Pit and Bronn just basically drags Pod away for some drinks and shit while all the serious stuff goes down. Well that observation has grown in the two decades since. Among those living are the members of House Stark, who finally got their act together. We also learned that if you kill the White Walker who animated the wights, then all the wights he controls dies. I guess it was useful to have him there though because he and Bran finally figured out that Rhegar and Lyanna were actually wed and that Jon is the legitimate heir to the Iron Throne. Weiss and Benioff make us acutely aware of how manipulated Jaime feels, because he serves as the audience surrogate.
He is their commander and I would think they are more loyal to him than to Cersei. Littlefinger's dead, Jaime's changing sides, Team Dany and Team Jon are united in more ways than one , the Wall has fallen, winter is here. I've always felt it strange that despite going through so much shit while with Brienne and later with Bronn, Jaime ends up settling back in as the big Lannister enforcer thug, even after Tommen's death and after the Sept being blown up by Cersei. The first slice against it is that Tyrion Lannister stands outside, longingly. It's scary, the music is nothing short of breath-taking.
The further they get from canon, the more flimsy and predictable the script has become. Here we are ladies and gentlemen, the final episode of the penultimate season of Game of Thrones. While I thoroughly enjoyed the season, it definitely stumbled more than once as it finished putting together the third act. Finally out of character wasn't bad writing and had a point. He knew exactly what he was doing. Then they tried to make me forget by having Jon fall into the water just like Jamie did.
And Jon is still as stubbornly noble as ever, resolute in his mission to stop the White Walkers but only by the most honorable means possible. As for Sansa and Arya in the north—the reveal that they were working together all along against Littlefinger was the only payoff that would have been satisfying given the rampant confusion that thread stirred. In Dragonstone, the second emotionally charged scene takes place. And the other is that of the Lannisters, a family with everything, but whose own grievances and doomed flaws will devastate one another until they sit upon a pile of smoldering ash. It was horrifying and strangely beautiful, featuring some of the best special effects work the show has ever seen. Am I going to die in this shit city? To be honest, in that scene, Kit Harington looked like a salesman showing the lady of the house that if handled this way the wonder mop will take all her worries away! Oh sure, we also reconfirmed Jon Snow is really a Targaryen—and in the classic biblical sense as he spends a night of passion with his aunt—but now winter is really here.
So again, as much as I love the fact that Littlefinger was ultimately unveiled as the mastermind behind most of the events that transpired over the past few seasons, in the end it was all a big farce that never needed to happen. She also goes to Disneyland and live theatre a lot. And speaking of that final scene — wow. Littlefinger and some men of the Vale are present. And like Ned, he walked straight into a trap laid by Cersei Lannister. Whatever her initial plan was, it ultimately would fall apart very quickly.
And the Theon stuff, for another. Also, she might be pregnant at the time. Gone are the days when shows were just shows, half-hour, or hour-long respites, of escapes, from the rest of our week. Almost every last one of her living enemies was in the same place at the same time. Therefore, when the power game of 'intimidate-but-also-convince-Cersei' comes into play, the dialogues burst like fireworks.
I love the tag-teaming here. We all know that she is going to wind up with his baby soon enough. Littlefinger does his Lucifer thing by whispering that she could essentially challenge his claim, but Sansa pretty much accepts that Jon has made the call to abandon his crown after wearing it for only a few months. The hatred between them, the blame apportioned for past wrongs, makes this tenser than a. And for that, he received his long overdue death. Still, from his refusal to bend down right then and there in the meeting when taunted by Euron, to him rising at the chance to mock Euron's joke-making skills with Tyrion and finally to that conversation in the Dragonstone throne room with Jon.
The other Iron Islanders accept him as the victor and rally with him to sail away in search of Yara. To cap it all off, we got a big action sequence that drastically changed the game board going into the the final season. Further prove he was going to sabotage and betray the Starks? When showrunners David Benioff and D. I forgot that this season of Game of Thrones was the penultimate one, a mere table-setter for the real war to come … next year. Martin would ever give readers something as anticipated as these two awful brothers entering mortal combat. Many of these characters have complicated histories, some good and some bad.
The glance between Brienne and Jaime is tinged with regret and sadness. Not just because Jonerys was finally solidified, but because if is correct, all of the conditions put forth by Mirri Maz Duur have been met for Daenerys to have children again. This dragon died, for all intents and purposes, so that Jaime Lannister could ride North by himself. And those are just love connections. This episode's confrontations between all the various characters in Westeros -- all the main characters in Westeros -- is amazingly written.
