episode review: (Game of Thrones) 7x06 Beyond the Wall  
This episode was WOAH. I have so much to say and I am so excited!

The episode last week was good... VERY good, but this one was fantastic and I cannot wait for the finale now. I know I will suffer for a year, waiting for it to come back, but WOW what a season we had so far...

Tormund, you are my favorite

Okay let's start with the review:

- The lads are taking a walk behind the wall. Since there's a long way to go and no girls, the boys can do some small talk... Tormund is THE BEST at small talks. He makes friends very easily... he has a conversation with Gendry about the South (he's an expert) and with Jon about Dany (he knows his chicks)... If I had to choose a music for this bit it would be Summer Nights from Grease! Also he makes a GREAT point on the knee bending issue! Tormund, you are amazing, please don't die... EVER!

- Gendry makes peace with the Brotherhood thanks to the Hound, and I finally get the conversation I was waiting for: Jon has the sword that belonged to Jorah's father. Jon wants to give it back but Jorah knows it's in good hands with him. It's pretty clear Jorah has now a crush on Jon too. "It's yours, it will serve you well, and your children after you" okay first hint to children, please take note because I have a theory I will explain later!

- I didn't see that coming... Littlefinger actually tricked Arya? Well... Maybe not, maybe she knew he was planting that thing for her to find, but she is still mad at Sansa and I understand... She has a point... Sansa is getting scared. They need to sort this out, just TALK you guys!

- It's time for Tormund to make another friend and it's the Hound's turn, what do you want to talk about with the Hound if not LOVE? The Hound tells him he knows Brienne and Tormund wants to know more, maybe the Hound can give him some suggestions on how to conquer her heart... I just loved that, I want these two to survive and to get their spin off! I would listen to them talking for days!

- Dany and Tyrion are drinking in front of the fire. She's worried for Jon and Tyrion knows the two of them would be perfect for each other, but Dany says he's too small for her, and that would not be a smart marriage alliance (well he was voted king in the North, so...) but if we think about it, does she really have to marry to hold the throne? I don't think so... I think she can do it by herself and people will follow her anyway because she's awesome! So she can marry for love and that would be great because Dany deserves it! More talk about kids...

- A thing I was expecting less than the undead bear that attached the boy scouts, was Sansa confiding in Littlefinger. I really don't know what this guy wants and this annoys me! Please let us know the truth before you die (because he's definitely going to die, and soon... I'm not sure we will see him in season 8 if he keeps playing this game)

- After more bonding the guys have the luckiest moment of their lives: a little group of White Walkers is wondering around by themselves and they 1. Manage to capture one 2. Find out that if you kill who turned them, you can kill them all... So if they manage to kill the Night King they can get rid of all the undead in one second (we know hat because we know he was the first one, but how do they know?). That is AMAZING! Okay let's say that to Dany when we send her a raven.

- The luck can't last too long, and they end up on a rock in the middle of a lake but luckily they manage to convince Gendry to run back to the Wall (how does he know the way? I would get lost) to send a super quick raven to Dany to tell her what happened, lets hope he remembers to tell her to fire on the Night King.

- The group spend the night on the rock, surrounded by undead. Thoros dies and that can't be good in the long game since he's the one who can bring back to life Beric? (and maybe Jon too, just in case?)

- Sansa receives a message form Cersei to go to Kings Landing and decides to send Brienne instead... Okay, now either Littlefinger forged that message to get rid of Brianne after he told Sansa to ask her help on the Arya's problem, or Sansa sends her away because she knows Littlefinger has a plan... Anyway I hope Sansa will remember Brienne's word about Lord Baleish. I really hope Sansa and Arya are pretending knowing Littlefinger can spy on them...

- Dany receives the raven (already?) and goes north with her Dragons, and I have to say I knew what will eventually happen, would have happened. I didn't know how, but I knew that was a possibility. Tyrion is very worried about her and he doesn't want her to go, but Jon is in danger and she has to go! I LOVED this moment! She goes for Jon, try to tell me that's not the reason! TRY!

- The Hound gets bored and starts throwing rocks and he makes a mess. They're all about to die (I was so scared for Tormund), and, when Jon is like "Okay we're dead, let's raise the sword one last time" DROGON ARRIVES and sets everyone on fire, and I am screaming and shaking the computer screen and I get up, and I have to open the window to yell more and all the birds look at me like I'm insane!

- The Dragons are amazing, the music is so epic, Drogon lands on the little rock and Dany wants Jon to get up... COME FLY WITH ME JON, I can show you the World! He's about to take her hand but he decides to kill a few more undead. The way they look at each other is AMAZING. Everyone gets on board, and the Night King is like "I was so waiting for this" and takes a spear. Viserion dies and this is one of the saddest moments ever. Everyone is so sad. Tormund is shocked. The dragons are crying for their brother and Jon gets super mad! The Night King is ready for another blow and Jon orders Dany to leave. I was in pain! Jon fall in the icy water and Dany decides to leave, even if she's not super convinced!

- Jon survives thanks to uncle Banjen! Such a great scene. He puts him on his horse and sends him home.

- I loved the scene with Dany and Jorah waiting for Jon (and the dragons too). Jorah want her to be happy and he knows she has feelings for Jon, he has feelings for him too! The Hound puts the undead on a boat and takes it south (to Cersei?). Now I need to know HOW? Benjen said they can't cross the wall because of a spell. He said it last season, how is it possible the undead went through the wall without - I don't know - fall into pieces?

- Jon appears on horseback and they put him on a boat. Where are they going to go? Winterfell? Kings Landing? Dragonstone? I hope he'll go to Winterfell, so he can be reunited with Arya and Brann... but it's more likely they're going back to Dragonstone to get the dragon glass and to figure sh!t out with Tyrion...

- Sansa and Arya have another confrontation and Gosh, Arya is scary! Can you guys please talk it through? You are making me nervous!

- And then we have the best scene of the episode. I don't know how to describe it if not saying it was perfect. Dany notices the scars on Jon's body and it's obvious he got stabbed in the heart, so it was not a figure of speech. When he wakes up he says he's sorry and Dany explains the dragons are the only kids she will ever have. Okay, I might be wrong but I think Jon and Dany will have sex before he finds out who he is (so maybe on that boat if they're going to Winterfell) and she will get pregnant. We can have the OMG we are related angst later... I have the feeling they will have a kid. There was too much talk about children in this episode. Jon calls her Dany and the dialogue they have reminds me of Elizabeth and Darcy on the alternative ending of Pride and Prejudice 2005 when he asks her how to call her. Jon decides to call her My Queen and I scream in every single pillow I have in the house. Dany cannot believe he's finally bending the knee, and she hopes she will deserve it. They're touching hands and it's as clear as the day they need to stop whatever they're doing because we can't deal with too much awesomeness at this point. She leaves and we all know that something will happen between them! Please let it happen on that boat!

- One minute to go and the thing that all of us feared (and hoped because we don't like when and animal dies) the Night King brings back the dragon. Now they are so fu*ked! I'm going to see the Wall fall! It's going to be epic... This season finale will kill us all!

Guys we're totally going to get this:

What do you think about the episode? Are you still shocked? What do you think it's going to happen on that boat?

Hahaha, you're so razzed, I love it.

I think Boatsex is definitely coming.

I also reckon Viserion's death is totally shattering and horrific and good because now Dany doesn't feel quite so invincible. However, I don't think this is going to happen in the books. She's obsessed with the whole Three Heads of the Dragon thing in them, and I reckon something is going to come of that. Still, I love departures such as this (or assumed departures!) because we get so much more to enjoy.

Bit over the Arya and Sansa stuff tbh. I find Sansa generally pretty annoying, but I was pretty disgusted with Arya's sass. She can just take that bag of faces and her smirk and piss off if it's not resolved next episode. :p

They better take their time on that boat LOL It's funny how people are so weirded out by this couple... In GoT incest is normal... but also in our World... Victoria and Alfred were cousins and they were the cutest... Nobility often married within the family...

Seeing the dragon falling from the sky was sad indeed... But that was a great plot twist,... I'm curious about what Martin is going to write... I wonder if he'll go somewhere else entirely...

I think we'll have a solution to the Stark drama and I think Arya is playing Littlefinger,,,
Lauren: Trust Meeowyn on August 27th, 2017 08:11 am (UTC)
I know! I think anyone who is familiar with the story is not weirded out, because it's been pretty obviously endgame since he started writing. Their stories are rather parallel - fire and ice; learning to rule; falling in love just once and losing that love; mystical pet sidekicks, lol, etc. It seems to be 'newer' fans who are struggling with this.

Tomorrow is going to be huge!

I reckon he will go in a totally different direction. I mean, the Martells and the Tyrells are still very much alive and powerful in the book, and there is no Silly Sand Rebellion. He's made it (at least to me, in my interpretation) pretty clear that Tyrion is also a Targaryen, so I'm convinced it's going to involve that. It bangs on a lot about the Three Heads of the Dragon and bonding one rider to one dragon, so I reckon Danerys will ride Drogon, Jon Rhaegal and Tyrion Viserion - who maybe dies after that, but I don't think so.

I really hope so. I know Littlefinger is meant to be super intelligent but watching him play two teenagers off one another is pretty tedious. I would hope neither sister is that stupid.

This episode really was fantastic, I agree!
Ery-chanerychan86 on August 22nd, 2017 07:32 pm (UTC)
I need the finale like NOW!!! And I cannot believe we'll have to wait the end of 2018/ beginning of 2019 for more! This show is too good!

I love Tormund so much!! I was ~really worried that he was getting so many lines cause he was going to die in the episode, which was REALLY upsetting. I'm SO happy he didn't die!!

Trav read somewhere that the wall won't hold the white walkers anymore because Bran crossed it...or something like that. So if that's true...maybe that's why the one they caught didn't die?

I'm so glad he survived ❤️ He has to make it to the end!!!

That's an interesting theory... is it because he carries the mark of the Night King since he touched him during a vision and they are now connected or because he's the 3 eyed raven?
~*Suzy Q*~blakmagjick on August 22nd, 2017 08:40 pm (UTC)
I think it's because he touched him during a vision, but I'm not positive. We'll find out tho!
This was such a good episode...I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL SUNDAY!!
Ery-chan: pic#105558586erychan86 on August 22nd, 2017 08:44 pm (UTC)
I cannot wait either!!!

We're getting there... :)

I never realised how much I needed a conversation between the Hound and Tormund haha it was gold.

I'm dying to know how it's going to go down at Winterfell with the girls and Littlefinger. I hope Arya is playing Littlefinger and just acting towards Sansa without her knowledge.

I was like NOOO NOT TORMUND!! I don't want him to die ever :(

Was so devastated when Viserion died :( like everyone else I suppose. I saw the pain in Dany's face, all the feels!

I;m so stoked for the next episode, I just don't know what the hell I'm going to do without it for another year! T_T

AHAHA yes, it was definitely something I was VERY happy to see!

I hope Arya is playing that game too! She's s too smart to get fooled by Littlefinger's stupid kindergartner tricks! Also I really hope she knows/will find out he was the one who betrayed Ned in Kings Landing...

I need Tormund to survive! I need it!!!

Dany was so heartbroken... I can only imagine how she will feel when she sees him again and turned into something different... I wonder if he will fire ice...

We might have to wait more than a year... They are talking about end 2018/beginning 2019 now... They will start shooting in October but the actors don't have the scripts yet... Usually it takes 5 months for them to shoot and 5 months in post production... I hope this will be the case so we can have it in a year!

I was so frustrated by this episode, especially with the character choices they made for Arya. I want her and Sansa to team up and take down Littlefinger, I don't want her being so mean to Sansa anymore. It's like every other character has evolved and Arya is still behaving like a child. Mind you, she is now a super creepy child that can kill you and still your face, but childish. I dunno, I'm worried about that arc, but perhaps they are going to pay it all off next season.

Also felt like the entire trip beyond the wall was another "WTF" kind of plan. And the white walker confrontation made no sense to me...why did they stop? Why did Jon not get on the dragon? Why did she bring all three dragons when she only brought one to the all out war? And how on earth did those Walkers dive underwater to get the chains around the dead dragon?

I dunno, I'm really worried that the show is just killing a lot of time until next season and creating drama for the sake of it. I'm glad that next season is the end because without the books to guide them, I feel like the writers are losing focus.

I did feel like Jon and Dany FINALLY had some chemistry, which we had been waiting for. Though now that we know they are cousins...should we still be rooting for them? i guess it doesn't matter since dany can't have kids anyway LOL. Oh well, go team! I just want Tormund and Brienne to survive.

I'm answering from the phone so I hope this won't be filled with typos lol!

Arya: I really think she's faking it... I cannot accept her being played by Littlefinger... I recently started a rewatch of the show because my mom wanted to see it, and I forgot how LittleFinger betrayed Ned... I remember he played a role in it, but he actually was extremely involved in what happened... he put a knife at già throat saying "i told you not to trust me". Now, I think I can see what's going on with Arya... she is mad and she has reasons to be, what she saw as a little girl must be still stuck into her brain. She saw Sansa in a pretty dress smiling and nodding while Ned was "confessing his crimes"... she was taken away before seeing Sansa's reaction, she feels guilty because she wanted to stay keep training with her dance master and sees Sansa guilty too because she wanted to stay to marry Geoffrey... Sansa remained a prisoner and a "victim" while she grew up and went through a lot of sh!t... ALONE... Sansa was always with someone, well fed and in a comfortable environment... she got raped physically and emotionally but Arya didn't have it easy either...

Arya is very smart and I hope she figured out what role LittleFinger had in all of this mess... so I really hope she's not just getting blonded by the feelings she had as a child and that grew with her because she never had the chance to let it all out... they need to talk and start to understand one another... but Arya is right about Sansa enjoying her role now and liking all the good things... I think Sansa is the one who learnt less from all of it... Arya just became super wild and sees everyone as an enemy...

The trip beyond the wall was a stupid plan, but consider that Jon has been saying these things exist and NO ONE believes him... and he's not the only one who saw them... and we know everyone knows the WW existed and then disappeared (like the Dragons) but they can't believe they are back? They know the wall has no men, but they believe it can hold an army? This is more WTF for me... Jon was like "okay this is the only way then, you need to see, you don't want to go, I'll risk my life and go get one... stupid plan, but the guy tried every other way... I don't know why she brought all of them this time... maybe she thought she needed them to fire while Drogon was acting like a bus... maybe she saw how close she got to lose Drogon during a battle with an human army and thought that maybe it was better bringing them all (against the Lannister she also had her army... up north she was alone... she needed the Dragons in my opinion). Walkers get killed by fire and not by ice and water so I can see them going into the water and tie the dragon... I don't know where they got the chains though...

I think during this season things are actually starting to happen... we had a season where Dany was just listening to the complaints of citizens... that was boring... I think they are doing a good job but I cannot wait for the books because there will be more stuff in them!

I totally ship Dany and Jon... she's his aunt but who cares? The Targaryan married within the family for generations to keep the blood pure to command the dragons... and look at our history... Victoria and Alfred were cousins and they gave us the best love story ever... and in our world nobles married in the family for AGES... There is a list of all the couples in GoT that were mentioned in the books and the novellas and so many of them are cousins/siblings/related in other ways... and I do think Jon and Dany will have a child... Martin said the show was always about them, the ice and the fire, and all this talking about kids and heirs I think it's an hint... Jon always said he didn't want to be a father because he didn't want another Snow in the north, living the life he lived... and Dany lost her child and threated her Dragons as such... and now Tyrion is mentioning an heir? Well... I think we're heading that way... I think something will happen between them soon, before Jon finds out who he is, and she will get pregnant and everything will be fine! :)

It's coming... I saw it this morning at 5 am and then I had to go and I just got back home... I will write it tomorrow because I don't think I can tonight... I LOVED it! That's what I'm going to say for now ❤️
