episode review: (Game of Thrones) 7x05 Eastwatch  
After an episode like that I cannot just move on with my life and give my attention to the next thing. I need to talk about this!

I've been commenting on the episode with some friends over text messages and I'm glad to say we were all very impressed with it. I cannot wait for Eric to get home so he can see it too and have his mind blown!

Here some random thoughts and theories (?) from yours truly:

- I would have never guessed the episode would have opened with Bronn fishing Jaime out of the water. I thought we would have had an episode without him and Cersei gulping down some wine while crossing another name on the family tree. But no. Bronn to the rescue! How can he be so sassy after what he went through? Let's keep this guy alive and let's give him a castle when we finally have peace...

- Daenerys asking to bend the knee or die makes sense after all... Every ruler asks for that... Taking them as prisoners would have been a kinder option, but she is sort of losing at the moment and she needs to keep showing straight. I don't think her action was so unexpected or "wrong" we're at war... Thing is, knowing who her father was, and having Cersei playing the card "she is a foreigner that fights with savage foreigners" thi s doen't help her cause... But she did all that mess on the battle field, not in Kings Landing and she has shown she could have done it. And here they go all the Dickon jokes though... I'm not going to miss Sam's father, not even a bit!

- Said all that I feel a bit like Tyrion walking on that waste land. War is not fun and they were just men following orders... Still they weren't innocents, they killed too, during this battle and even before... How many people did they kill in High Garden? Tyrion (like Jaime) is sort of tired of all this killing though... And I feel his concern and pain!

- Jaime is back home in 3 seconds (Westeros Transportations uses very fast vehicles) and he gives some bad news to Cersei: "She has 3 dragons" woah woah woah Jaime... SPOILER ALERT! He also says to her that Olenna the Queen of Shades had a last sassy moment before dying and confessed she killed Geoffrey... I love how Jaime is the first to imply ALWAYS that guy was a twisted mess, and everyone goes "fair enough" and moves on to the next topic!

- Jon pets Drogon and I melt! I was waiting for this. It was in my list of things I wanted and I had my wish granted! Dany's face is everything and Drogon accepted Jon as his new daddy! Now let'd Dany pet Ghost and let's have him roll over for her like a good dog! Dany and Jon are so gorgeous together and they're getting closer day after day! He's about to tell her about the stabby-stabby moment but Jorah-Friendzoned-Mormont arrives and gives another chance to Dany to look like a great ruler in front of Jon. I forgive you Jorah.

- Bran is tripping and sees the White Walker slowly getting to Eastwatch. He sends some teleporting Crows (Crows are faster than texts now) to that group of librarians that believe they're smarter than they are while they're not and Sam tries to put some sense in them but they are too full of sh!t. "A cripple boy says..." did Bran forgot to sign Bran STARK at the end of the message? I wish this guys were a little bit more north than they are so the Night King could take care of them.

- Varys and Tyrion have a pillow talk with some wine and they talk about mundane things like people on fire and stuff. I love them! I don't think Dany is out of control, it's a war. She didn't go to Kings Landing to kill innocent people... Being beheaded or burnt in a breath of fire is not that different. There was no suffering. It took a second. Dany listens and she will listen, but she needed to show them that she has the power and she could take Kings Landing in 30 minutes, but she is not her father.

- Time for the WORST PLAN EVER. Let's go kidnap a White Walker. How? They don't camp for the night. They march together... How do you think you can kidnap one? You and who Jorah? And whom else? Such a stupid plan and Dany fears she won't see her Jon again and I melt because I ship this too hard!

- I knew Arya is not 100% fine with Sansa! I KNEW IT! She blames her for what happened to their father. I need a confrontation! I NEED IT! I NEED MORE THAN THAT!

- Tyrion and Davos use the motor-boat (I mean how can they go so fast) and get to Kings Landing. I wonder if they stayed in silence on the journey because as soon as they get off the boat they start some small talk that you can only have in Westeros "Last time I was here I killed my father" "Last time I was here you burnt my son" #awkward

- Bronn surprises Jaime and it's not even his birthday. He brings him to Tyrion and we all know they want to hug and never let go!

- Davos goes to the market and comes back with Gendry and I don't know why I totally knew it but still I jumped! Gendry is so over his day job that leaves all behind and follows Davos and Tyrion.

- Jaime bring some more news to Cersei and she's not very impressed because he stole her thunder, she wanted to say to him she has a bun in the oven. Jaime asked who supplied the yeast (understandably so) and she's not even hurt by the assumption. And now she has Jaime wrapped around her finger again... So it's either a lie and she's not pregnant, or she is and she's going to lose it because she drinks way too much. If she is pregnant, and stays that way it would be even more powerful a scene where Jaime kills her and then kills himself! "Never betray me again" #lol

- Gendry has been told not to say who he is but he's a Jon Snow fan and loses his sh!t and spills the bean.

- Dany and Jon has to say goodbye and the sexual tension is killing me! Jorah and Tyrion notice it too... You can feel that they are not that happy to separate, but he has to come back! HE HAS TO!

- Sam finally decides it's time to leave that place and HE MISSES THE BIGGEST PLOT TWIST EVER! So now we not only know that Jon is a Targaryen... we also know Rhaegar MARRIED Lyanna Stark so he has more claim to the throne that Dany... SAM YOU SHOULD HAVE LISTEN!

- Littlefinger is plotting something and Arya follows him... It seems like Arya has been fooled by Lord Baelish BUT I don't think so. Arya can change faces... If she wanted to follow him without being busted she would have taken another identity. She's too smart to be fooled like this! I believe in you Arya Stark! Still, if she believes in what she read (the message that Sansa was forced to write to Robb while in Kings Landing back in season 1) that could bring to the confrontation I want and need!

- Jon reaches Tormund who would have liked better to see Brianne and convinces him to follow the stupid plan. Tormund has a surprise for him, the Hound and 2 members of the Brotherhood want to go behind the wall to kick some a$$, so the 7 men... Did I say it already I think it's a stupid plan? I have a bad feeling about this!

Here we go! What did you think about Eastwatch? Did you enjoy it? What was the part that shocked you the most? Please let me know in your comments!!!

Great review, I agree with every single thing you wrote.GREAT MINDS THINK ALIKE. :D

This season is soo good, I'm so excited about this show it's kinda pathetic.
Can't believe it'll be over in two weeks and then we'll have to wait years. :(

Also, ofc it's the worst plan ever (and the reasons why Dany can't go north with the dragons are utter rubbish) but it'll make for great viewing. I wonder who/how many of the Magnificent Seven won't make it back.well except Jon, ofc. He died once already and is kinda vital for the endgame.

Why is it not next Monday already!?!?

Apparently the next two episodes will be quite long... Around 80 minutes... YAY, but still... We'll have to wait a year after that and then it will be over... forever... I am sad! :(

Jon is def going to make it back... I son't know how though... I mean 7 agains who-knows-how-many UNDEAD? It's suicide! And for what? To kidnap one? It would have been so much easier for Dany to do a quick trip north... Anyway I think Cersei would agree to a truce so that she can then break her vow and attack Dragonstone or do something to put her in a better position...

YEAH!!! *high 5*

Thanks :D

I loved this episode...and was surprised that it was a such a good follow up to all the dragon flames at the end of last week...haha

I can't believe Sam missed the point that Jon Snow ISN'T A BASTARD!! ahhhh

Loved when Jon got to pet Drogon...cause the dragon knows he's a Targaryen!
Ery-chanerychan86 on August 17th, 2017 10:59 am (UTC)
Yes I was surprised too! I thought they would have not take it back just where they left it off, it has been a good surprise! :)

I think Sam does't know about Jon's family situation, but I'm sure as soon as he gets up north and gets a chance to talk with Bran he will put 2 and 2 together... I know Jon will eventually find out but I don;t know why I hope Tyrion finds out first and he;s the one who breaks the news... Unfortunately it's impossible!

Awww Drogon was making the cat's sound LOL! Loved it!!!
Jesscrinkle on August 16th, 2017 02:06 pm (UTC)
Haha Bronn definitely deserves a castle! I love that guy!

Not sorry about the Tarlys at all. Maybe it gives Sam to be he head of his family now because his mother and sister seem much kinder.

The Jon petting Drogon but was the best!

Yeah this plan with the white walker is weird lol no idea how they're going to pull that off!

I squeed so hard when Ihe headed to Flea bottom! I was like It's about fucking time! Yay Gendry! I loved their conversations and with Jon too about their fathers lol

Omg when Gilly was reading! I reminded that shit and explained to my mum hahaha

It was the best!
Ery-chanerychan86 on August 17th, 2017 11:04 am (UTC)
Can you imagine if Bronn ends up on the throne? LOL That would be funny xD I really hope he'll survive! I love how he is still loyal to both Tyrion and Jaime! They need to hang out more xD

I think Sam could make a great lord... And I don't think the Night Watch will last long so his vows are not going to count anymore soon!

Dany's face during the petting session <3

I was not expecting Gendry to ever appear again... It was a nice surprise and I often wondered about him... It was good to have him back... I hope he will get the chance to see Arya... It was quite sad Jon didn't stop home to see Arya before heading to the Wall :(

It was funny how it was Gilly the one who gave us the last piece of the puzzle. I hope it registered with Sam even if he was mad... He needs to make the connection when he gets the chance to speak with Bran!
Jesscrinkle on August 17th, 2017 01:22 pm (UTC)
Bronn for king!

Agreed, Sam would be a great lord!

I really was hoping Jon would stop by the wall too :( they all need to reunite! And wtf happened to Theon on Dragon Stone?

I know we'll be seeing more flashbacks sometime, they will be exciting! More of the backstory!
Ery-chanerychan86 on August 17th, 2017 02:01 pm (UTC)
I cannot wait for Arya and Jon to hug season 1 style!

The Kingdom would do great with Bronn as a leader... Everyone would be super chill LOL!

I need a whole series on the back story... I really want one of the spin off HBO is working on to be about the generation before when Ned was a kid and Lyanna and Rhaegar had their forbidden love <3
Jess: misc: baby groot cutecrinkle on August 17th, 2017 02:52 pm (UTC)
Yes! That spin off needs to happen!

My pet peeve with this season is that travel time has become WAY FASTER than ever before! We used to spend entire seasons traveling across Westeros and now everyone is magically wherever they need to be. It made the next episode even more confusing. :\ Not sure if you've posted about that yet. I'm so behind on LJ!

This season keeps bouncing between being awesome and making me want to throw things LOL
