Best episode of the season, if you ask me!
It started out slow, but oh my god, MY HEART!! Seeing Arya arrive at Winterfell was everything! I actually cried watching her, Sansa and Bran walking together.. and being watched by an emotional Brienne 🙂 I loved seeing Sansa and Arya together. They have both grown and put aside their differences. I just can’t wait for the Stark kids to fuck up everyone!
Talking about that.. I think Littlefinger is fucked. And with that I mean, he’ll be dead before the season is over. Bran probably knows EVERYTHING about you, you better get away quick! Bran saying ‘Chaos is a ladder’ and thereby quoting LF’s monologue from a few seasons ago was SO badass! Littlefinger doesn’t know who he’s dealing with and he will be taken down by all 3 Stark kids, please. I think Bran giving the dagger to Arya settles this. She will kill LF with his own blade.
A sad moment was Meera saying goodbye to Bran. And he doesn’t care. Because, yep, we have to admit – Brandon Stark died in that cave and is now only the Three Eyed Raven. A huge responsibility that can’t have him be emotional and stuff. Bran looks pretty dead inside 😦
My second favourite scene of this episode was probably Arya fighting Brienne. Damn, it DID look good. I wonder whether this was actually Maisie Williams or a stunt double. There was this tense moment between her and Littlefinger and if he was thinking straight he’d be long gone by now…
Jon and Dany have insane chemistry… but I hope they don’t make out.. I know it’s Westeros and kinda not a big deal there.. but she’s his aunt!! And that just doesn’t work for me. I can’t believe no one has ever explored this cave before! It’s not hidden but in plain sight!
And then suddenly.. a Greyjoy ship appears! Seriously, Euron?? Can you teleport? But nooo, it’s not Euron, but Theon! And here’s another tense reunion.. Jon is NOT happy – he probably remembers what Theon did in Season 2. But he doesn’t kill him, because he saved Sansa. Fair enough.
So now.. let’s talk about the last part of this episode.
HOW FREAKING AWESOME WAS THIS?? DRAGON ACTION, DOTHRAKI, AWESOME IMAGES! I can’t believe how great everything looked, this is where their money went. I was so hype for the scene of the Dothraki army appearing and Dany flying over them on her dragon. They are all doomed if she really decides to attack King’s Landing. Who will stand against a dragon?? Or 3 of them?
It was brutal to see soldiers getting burned to death and turn to ashes!
My MVP of this episode though? BRONN!!
Doesn’t turn up for half of the season, then has some screen time and steals the show! I went from ‘PLS BRONN DON’T DIE!’ to ‘LEAVE DROGON ALONE!!’ in a couple of seconds. It’s hard if your faves are facing off against each other! I just want them to hug it out… After he lost his bag of coins I was sure he’d be done and surprised he made it out. But then after he injured Drogon I was even more convinced that this was the end. At least he’d go out in a literal blaze of glory! But nope, Bronn’s a freaking survivor!!! He will be there until the end (please)!
I had this horrible moment where I was sure they killed DROGON!! But then, seeing Dany on the ground, trying to save him, was an adorable moment and made me like her a bit more again. She’s trying to protect her dragon! And that’s the only important thing.
The last scene was a masterpiece… And Tyrion watching & commenting on it made it even better. Great acting by everyone involved!
Jaime having the courage to ride against Dany and almost being a QUEENSLAYER!! I’m glad Drogon got there in time. The save in the end was incredible, I wonder whether that was Bronn or if it would be too obvious? They probably want us to think it was Bronn! But I can’t imagine anyone else…
Once again, I am so happy I didn’t read the leaked script. Not sure if it actually was the real deal or not, but it would have taken so much away to already know what would have happened in this scene especially! I even skipped watching the preview videos. No trailers, no interviews, I’d rather be blown away like that. Now I know how watching must have been for people who haven’t read the books!
I am SO HYPE for next week!!
