Game of Thrones: Season 7 Episode 5 Eastwatch Review

We start this week’s episode picking up after the stunning defeat of the Lannister’s. Bronn recovers Jamie and drags him to land while telling him that the only person who is allowed to kill Jamie is Bronn (at least until Bronn gets his comeuppance). Jamie full well realizes the power of Daenerys’ army and the even deadlier three dragon weapons that wiped out his host. Yet he has the unenviable task of revealing this information to Cersei.

Game of Thrones: Season 7 Episode 4 The Spoils of War Review

The Spoils of War starts with Jamie and Bronn at Highgarden gathering supplies and the treasures in preparation for a drawn out war with Daenerys’ army. Although the Lannisters were victorious, Jamie is clearly perturbed about how things went down as indicated by Bronn’s acumen. In the meantime, Bronn starts talking about what Jamie now owes him, which is a full castle. Bronn points out that Highgarden seems available but the upkeep and Daenerys’ invasion would make him think otherwise, according to Jamie.

Game of Thrones: Season 7 Episode 3 The Queen’s Justice Review

The episode starts off with one of the most anticipated reunions in the series: Jon Snow greeting Tyrion Lannister at the beach of Dragonstone. Jon is accompanied by a few Stark men and his most trusted advisor Ser Davos Seaworth while Tyrion has by his side a few Dothraki soldiers and Missandei. They exchange a warm handshake and reminisce about when they last met at the Wall.

Game of Thrones: Season 7 Episode 2 Stormborn Review

Stormborn picks up from the near dialogless ending from Episode 1 where Daenerys, Tyrion and the others plot Daenerys’ conquest of Westeros. We have an exterior shot showing a tremendous rain storm where Tyrion and Varys reflect upon Daenerys’ birth. Daenerys lacks patience over her desire to march forth and take back her birthright, but she too reminisces of the past, particularly her brother Viserys who she admits was an idiot and was led to believe how Varys and his friend Illyraio Mopatis fed him false information to make a return.

Game of Thrones: Will Cersei Play A Major Role in the War Against the White Walkers?

There’s a lot of speculation about how Cersei will die with the prophecy of the Valonqar commonly connecting her demise to Tyrion and possibly Jamie Lannister. One can only imagine that if she is killed by her brother, it’s because she’s pushed him to his limits in what he can accept from her, which might result in some horrific deed. With Season 7 Episode 1, we see that their relationship is shaky at best with Jamie not exactly trusting her. But what is her deal? And how will she react ultimately if and when she ever sees the undead?

Game of Thrones: Will Dragonstone Play A Role in the Future?

The ending for Game of Thrones Season 7 episode 1 in showing Dragonstone being a massive castle is one in which I do not think it being a coincidence. Although we have seen glimpses previously with Stannis occupying the keep, Season 7 seems to increasing the importance in having various characters spend a significant amount of time there with Daenerys making it the core of her operations to take back the Seven Kingdoms. Yet besides the Dragonglass that Samwell suspects the island to hold a great deal of, what else will Dragonstone be significant for in the upcoming seasons?

Game of Thrones: What Role Will the Mountain and Qyburn Play?

As the series is drawing closer to the end, there’s still many theories on the end game. In between all of that are how the pieces will fit together in eventually working themselves out. Two characters who have been somewhat silent (literally and figuratively) are the Mountain and Qyburn. I feel that both have an interesting possible role in Season 8, although this current season won’t really reveal much as of yet.

Game of Thrones: The Jon Snow – Cersei Lannister Alliance That Probably Won’t Happen in Season 7

Since Season 7 is being filmed, there’s been various speculations/rumors that have popped up along with actual photos and short clips of people capturing a few key scenes. Over on Reddit, there is someone who claims to have dropped the major plot points (which I deconstructed earlier). A few other sites have picked up on these spoilers and claim that them as potentially being the real deal. Whether or not they come true to me is irrelevant because I want to propose what I feel should be a better plot than what these spoilers entail: the Jon Snow – Cersei Lannister alliance.
