Game Of Thrones Season 7 Finale

WOW! Last night′s Season 7 finale of ′Game of Thrones′ on HBO was spectacular! The episode was entitled, ″The Dragon and the Wolf″, in reference to Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow, considered part of the House of Stark. This was a short short season, only 7 episodes long instead of the usual 10. But there was little disappointment. The show′s producers, writers, artists and cast delivered. Nearly every episode had some major battle scene. The CGI work was incredible and the plots were crisp. Almost as crisp as some of the characters after being burnt alive by dragons! So, without further ado, let me write those immortal words..., SPOILER ALERT!

 

 

 

Much of the action is at Kingslanding, capitol of the Iron Throne where Cercsei Lanister rules as Queen. But she is not the only queen around as Daenerys Targaryen arrives with her fleet, armies and two remaining dragons. A council has been arranged between the two opposing sides to discuss the real threat from the north, the Night King and his Army of the Dead. King of the North, Jon Snow, has survived his ordeal in capturing a zombie soldier to prove to the rest of Westeros that the threat is real. Daenerys nursed him back to health on the boat ride to Kingslanding, seeing for herself that not only is the Night King real, but also that Jon really was stabbed in the heart.

 

The conference gets off to a rough start as Sandor ′The Hound′ Clegane confronts his brother, the not so dead Sir Gregor. Then, Euron Greyjoy of the Iron Fleet tries to get his nephew, Theon, to ′bend at the knee′ to him now that he has his sister, Yara, captive. But ′Hand of Queen Daenerys′, Tyrion Lanister, tries to get everyone to focus. Sandor brings out a box carrying the captive zombie soldier, which scares the heck out of all. Euron decides that he isn′t sticking around and leaves for his home to ride out the apocalypse, or so he says. Cersei appears terrified as well, and agrees to an armistice under one condition, that Jon Snow remains neutral after the Night King is defeated when the two queens fight it out for Westeros. Snow declares himself under the banner of Daenerys, and the armistice, and meeting, comes to an abrupt end.

 

After some discussion about how Jon should have lied a bit to keep the peace, Tyrion heads off to see Cersei alone and convince her to agree to the armistice. With Sir Gregor behind him, ready to slice his body in half, Tyrion discovers that Cersei is pregnant again. He manages to get Cersei and her entourage back to the meeting where the armistice is agreed to and even agrees to send her army to join Snow and Daenerys in the North.. Or does she? As Sir Jamie Lanister plans troop movements with his officers, Cersei interrupts. Her army will not fight the Night King in The North. Nor did Euron runaway to the safety of Pyke. The Iron Bank has pledged plenty of gold to Cersei, enough to buy a mercenary army, which Euron and his Iron Fleet will ferry over. She thinks she will have enough to fight whoever wins in The North. Jamie is furious, having promised to fight. As a matter of honor, he leaves on his own and heads North.

 

Back at Winterfell, things are getting dicey between Sansa and Arya Stark. After their confrontation in the last episode, where Sansa learned how Arya is now a skilled assassin, learning the techniques of The Face, she is scared that Arya may kill her and take over. Her alleged ally, Petyr ′Littlefinger′ Baelish, supports the idea of disposing of Arya now, especially while the Amazon knight, Brienne of Tarth, is away at Kingslanding. Meanwhile, Samwell Tarly returns to Winterfell and rejoins with Bran Stark. Bran tells Samwell about his experiences north of The Wall and how he now is the 3-Eyed Raven, seeing all from the past and present. Bran tells Samwell that Jon Snow is not the bastard son of Ned Stark, but actually the child of Rhaegar Targaryen, older brother of Daenerys, and Ned′s sister, Lyanna Stark. Samwell confirms that they were married after reading about it in records kept at the Old Town. Bran says that they must tell Jon that he is not a bastard, but the rightful heir to the Iron Throne as Aegon Targaryen, Snow's true name.

 

The tension between Sansa and Arya reaches a point where Sansa orders Petyr to bring Arya to the Great Hall of Winterfell. Standing before both Sansa and Bran, it looks like Arya is about to be accused of treason and plotting to kill Sansa. However, as Sansa announces the charges, she turns her head and accuses Petyr instead! He tries to worm his way out but it does no good. His days of plotting and conniving are over as Arya slits his throat with the very dagger he gave Bran, whom, in turn, had given to Arya. Good riddens to Petyr!

 

Out at sea, the forces of Queen Daenerys are sailing for The North. Jon Snow pays her cabin a late night visit, eyed from the shadows by Tyrion. Not knowing that they are related, that Jon is her nephew, he and Daenerys take to her bed for some royal sex. Their union comes none too soon as winter arrives in Westeros. There is snow falling even in Kingslanding. Jamie Lanister notices it getting very cold on his lonely ride north. Further north of him, at East Watch, the Night King arrives with his Army of the Dead. The Night King is riding his new dragon, which breathes ice, powerful enough to shatter The Wall. The Wildings retreat as fast as they can as the great barrier comes crashing down. Winter has arrived and The Great War is about to begin! See you in Season 8!
