episode review: (Game of Thrones) 7x07 The Dragon and the Wolf!  
My day started at 4 am when I woke up looking for the episode knowing it was still airing in that moment in the US.

My Mac did a stupid secret update where it installed something that slowed down everything to the point of driving me insane. But I managed to get my hands on the episode and - after I watch it -  I fixed the problem! Now I have a fast computer and I can re-watch scenes of this wonderful episode over and over again!

best character of the episode

- Everything starts in Kings Landing and Grey Warm is not impressed! Bronn makes some bad dick jockes... he misses Dickon!

- Looks like we didn't have the boat sex we all (me) wished for. They went pick up Tyrion and the others... The Hound goes play with the box like the stone throwing game didn't teach him a lesson. Thankfully the Walker manages to stay inside!

- Cersei gives the Mountain a list of people to kill in a certain order and Jaime seems sort of shocked... I love how his sister/lover can still surprise him after all this time!

- I love when characters come together and it was so good to see them all reunite. Tyrion and Podrick, Brienne and the Hound, Bronn and Tyrion... Everyone is happy to see one another and they all share so much history... Somehow they ended up on different sides but wow! I loved this so much!

- They all go to the Dragon Ball Arena and there are 3 tents, no one told Cersei Jon bended the knee last week... or she didn't have time to change the arrangements... I guess is now clear was indeed Cersei the one who sent the invite to Sansa... I thought it was one of Littlefinger' schemes, I was wrong! The way Cersei looks at Tyrion... If a look could kill... Jon's tent it's pretty empty... "Pochi ma buoni" we say in Italy (a few but good ones). Dany is missing, or is she? No she just want to make an entrance, but I think she made a mistake bringing both dragons, it's pretty clear something happened to the third one and I guess Cersei will figure it out!

- More reunions now, this time of people who don't like one another: Theon and Euron, the Hound and the Mountain... I cannot wait for them to fight!!!

- Seems like they actually needed to see it to believe... I love Jon's science experiment where he shows how to kill a Walker... For the first time in years we see an expression on Cersei's face that's not rage or boredom... that's fear... Euron gives voice to what everyone is thinking and walks away since the Walkers are not Swimmers. Qyburn is the only one who is actually intrigued and wonders how to re-create that...

- Cersei says she will give them a truce if only Jon, when the moment comes, will not take sides... But Jon is a man of his word and he says he already bended the knee to Dany and he will serve her. Everyone is shocked and mad. Cersei storms out like the Evil Queen after the hunter choose Snow White, Davos is wondering why Jon didn't share this news with him during the boat trip and Tyrion is annoyed because he remembers Ned way too well! Dany is between mad and grateful but she choose to show the mad side talking about her dragon. Brienne follows Jaime and try to convince him to help them but he's too shell shocked! Luckily we have Tyrion who likes to talk.

- Jaime and Tyrion met in the corridor and I so want them to hug one another but no! They don't do stuff like that... Great confrontation between Cersei and Tyrion and he now knows she's pregnant...

- Dany and Jon talk about dragons, he is pretty broken by what happened behind the wall... He cares for the creatures. Dany talks to him but I cannot hear a thing because my brain yells KISS DAMN IT KISS! They talk about kids again... Guys... He will get her pregnant... I am SO DAMN SURE OF THIS!

- Cersei comes back and says she will be joining them and I don't believe her for a second because it makes more sense to make them go to war so there will be a smaller number of soldiers to kill later.

- Sansa talks to Littlefinger... AGAIN... I cannot stand this! Sansa you cannot be so stupid!

- Dany decides to go up north with Jon by boat and was it me or she smiled a little in the end?

- I really enjoyed the conversation between Jon (who was in a rush, he had to use the toilet) and Theon and also the fact Theon finally got his balls back. Go save your sister Theon! Go and kill your uncle since you're there!

- Back to Winterfell we have the highest moment of the season! The Starks were all playing Littlefinger! Oh I loved the way he went down his knees and cried like a baby and Arya was like "enough" BEAUTIFUL scene! I am so happy! And, thanks to Bran, they knew he betrayed Ned! Wow!

- Another great scene where Jaime takes back his balls and says "enough" to Cersei's non-sense. He gave his word and he will join the other in the fight! That was great! I yelled FINALLY for the second time in 5 minutes! I feared for his death though when he was alone and he stopped to put on his glove. I thought, since he finally got rid of Cersei, he finally completed his character growth... Winter is now in Kings Landin too. Things are getting interesting! I wish Bronn was with him, but maybe he'll join him soon... I hope!

- Another reunion: Sam and Bran. They had two pieces of the puzzle and now they have the whole picture. We get to see Raeghar and Lyanna's wedding and they were so cute... And - during the voice over - Jon knocks on Dany's door (Bran "He Loved her") and Dany lets him in (Bran: "and she Loved him"). Jon closes the door and outside we see Tyrion with a weird expression... Is Tyrion in love with Dany (or Jon)? I don't like this. Dany and Jon make love and OMG THE TENSION, they look so awesome. This must be the only (or one of the very few) love making scenes of the show! This is not sex... Look at the way they look at each other! #EryIsDead. So now Bran and Sam know... and they'll tell Jon who definitely put a baby into Dany!

- Arya and Sansa make a great team, I'm glad it went this way. Bran is in the garden and he's checking the Wall. Tormond sees something... or someone... The Army of the Dead is here and the Night King is riding Viserion who can breath blue fire! The wall falls and this is awesome... But only if Tormund is still alive!

- The dead are marching south. Screams into the pillow. The end.

WOW! What an episode! I need to watch it again! Maybe tomorrow! Now it's time to go to bed because it's very VERY late for me!

I am just SO FRAKKIN GLAD that Arya and Sansa got Little Finger. I was literally stomping around all last week, so angry about the whole sister vs. sister thing (as you know from my reply to your post but just imagine that but me popping out of random corners of the library anytime I heard a coworker discussing the episode and slapping my hands on the table).

Anyway, yes, best scene of the episode for me was that moment.

Poor Theon. I really like the conversation between Jon and him. Plus foreshadowing since Jon is going to have to learn how to be both a Stark and Targaeryen now. Also, the ridiculous look on his face when he was like "HA I have no penis to crush so go ahead and knee my groin again!" - it was a very odd moment of triumph?

I wonder if Lena Headey is getting tired of having to SNARL so much as Cersei. She really just has to be so miserable and angry looking the whole time. Also, definition of a bad day would be threatening to have BOTH your brothers killed in front of you in the same day. Maybe hormones? LOL j/k she crazy.

Jamie, Jamie, Jamie. Brienne tried to warn you. I can't believe he fell for Cersei's trick. He has a warrior's code to follow and he is going to follow it. I wonder how long it will take for him to get to Winterfell all alone on horseback...and will Bron join him? Oooooh I hope so!


So, yeah, feeling better about things after that episode. The writers totally played me. But things will not be as nice and neat as I was thinking they would be before - I figured this season would be the war with Cersei or the war in the north and the next season would be whoever is left but now it sounds like we are just going to have an epic cluster! BRING IT ON!

I don't want to say it was better than sex (because let's be honest...) but I am saying it anyway LOL... I knew something was going on... They are both too smart to fall for that high school shit! I loved how he begged for his life... He was such a little person! :D Bye Bye! You're not going to be missed!

I enjoyed Theon's scenes too and a lot. I think Jon will find it hard...
1. He loves Dany and the fact they are related will make him uncomfortable maybe... It doesn't seem like the incest is a weird thing in Westeros... The people in Kings Landing were against Geoffrey because he was a bastard (in every possible meaning) and not the produce of incest... I know that Dany doesn't find it weird, since she was supposed to marry her brother before he sold her to Drogo. But again... even in our world plenty of people from the same family got married to maintain the "pure blood"...
2. He doesn't want to be the King of the 7 kingdoms. I honestly think he will want Dany to rule and she will say "let's do it together and Drogon will create a throne for the two of them <3
3. He has always been a bastard, someone people was making fun of, he lived his life not waning to father a child because of his last name, he has been hated for no reason,... it will be hard for him to figure out his place into the world after a life like that!

I really hope Cersei will die killed by Jaime. That's the only way... and I am sure that kid (if he/she exist and it's not a way to keep Jaime on her side) will not come into that world... She's either going to lose him (too much stress too much booze the prophecy said she would have had 3 children) or Jaime will kill her while pregnant!

Jaime was indeed the best character of the episode for me since he finally said fuck this shit and went following his moral code! He is scared but he gave his word and he's going to go fight in the North. I loved this! I don't think it will take him too long since traveling alone should take less than do it with an army... I think Bronn should join him... We won't see him in Kings Landing with Cersei since the 2 actors have a contract that says they can't share scenes, so I think it makes sense for him to go north with Jaime and join Tyrion too!

I think Tormund is safe... He didn't run down the steps... he run toward Castle Black and just a portion of the wall fell... He turns and sees it falling... I think he's safe! I want to hope he is!!!

I think we're not going to have a war of the Queens... I think our heroes will destroy the WW and the people and the big houses will pledge loyalty to Dany and Jon because they are the right people to rule over them!

That was the best moment ever (well Jon/Dany was pretty damn good too for me) !

I loved how he begged for his life... Like the little bitch he was! That was SO GOOD!

It was amazing. Enough said.

I need to watch this episode again and again! I loved it so much!!!
Jesscrinkle on August 31st, 2017 03:51 am (UTC)
Me too! My Dad hasn't watched the last 2 yet (he was away for work) so I might watch them with him haha
Ery-chanerychan86 on September 1st, 2017 08:47 am (UTC)
Ahaha do it! My husband was away for work and we watched the last 3 ones in the past 2 evenings and he wants to see them again! I cannot wait for the DVDs

I was SO glad when Littlefinger finally got it!!

I think Jon is going to have a problem when he finds out next season that he's related to Dany.
