This article discusses events previewed in a promo for Game of Thrones Season 7 episode 3, "The Queen's Justice". And "while some viewers might balk at the idea of taking time away from vital plot" for this, Aliza Weinberger explains why the scene was "arguably vital". And Missandei finally got a good look at Greyworm's, uh, situation. With the exception of the late Ned Stark, no one tried to prevent it. It also saw Daenerys emerging more as "tyrant" than "savior" in this episode. Maybe it'll be a thing where he scratches her back and she'll scratch his later, if there's time. I hope this doesn't mean he's going to be killed again.
"In ep2, we got to see the Grejoys" tussle at sea. An ecstatic Euron Greyjoy is seen riding into King's Landing and Cersei is mentioning something about drawing the first blood.
"Incompetence should not be rewarded with blind loyalty", he says.
Looks like the eyeliner-obsessed pirate king has claimed his gift for his intended bride, Cersei, and when you think about it, this one was a doozy. Let us know your thoughts and theories by commenting below. How is Kings Landing looking following Cersei's incineration of the Great Sept when she took out the Tyrells and the High Sparrow, a.k.a. Westerosi Bernie Sanders?
In return, she promises, "If you ever betray me, I will burn you alive".
Although she has royal pedigree and demonstrated leadership skills, Dany has one fatal flaw in the whole queen department: Girl does not want to listen to counsel.
Daenerys accepting Varys in her inner circle after her interrogation of his character is just another example of Daenerys mastering the game.
Everybody plans their weekends around Game of Thrones, right?
Meanwhile, in the North, Jon is already preparing to approach Daenerys.
But whether or not their relationship turns romantic, seeing two main characters who started on nearly opposite ends of the planet - Jon in the north at the Wall, and Daenerys in Essos with her Dothraki khalasar - is pretty incredible.
In the post-episode rundown, showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss spoke about Theon's struggle to reclaim his identity after spending years as Reek - the name Ramsay forced him to go by. This news changed everything for Arya, who chose to abandon her revenge plot and about-face for the North to reunite with her family (ironically, she's headed North to see Jon-she doesn't know about Sansa yet-and she will once again just miss her family, since he's setting sail for Dragonstone). As a point of comparison, there are eight of them in the books, they spend much less time bickering, boasting and flashing their breasts at Bronn (who never ventures anywhere near Dorne in A Song of Ice and Fire) and more time killing people, and they don't rely on Ellaria to tell them what to do.
Game of Thrones airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on HBO.
