Hi everyone! Here I am again with my weekly Game of Thrones Season 7 episode review.
This week episode was “Eastwatch”. A lot of things happened in this episode, including probably the most important reveal of the whole series, so let’s get right to it.
Now, in my opinion, last week’s episode was better, mostly thanks to the huge fight scene in the end, in this week’s episode we had a little less action but still we saw a great number of things. If you want to avoid spoilers don’t go any further, come back after you have seen the episode.
Here are my favorite moments:
– Mad Queen Daenerys
In the first part of the episode, we saw the aftermath of last week’s epic battle. We saw how much damage a dragon can do in an open field, and we saw Dany showing a little bit of her mad queen side when she burns alive Dickon and Randyll Tarly. Now I won’t miss Randyll, he was an asshole even in the books, but poor Dickon did not deserve to die like that. I really hope Dany will come to her senses.
– Targaryen blood
The scene when Drogon lets Jon pet him was super cool. We all know that Jon has Targaryen blood, and of course Dany and Jon don’t know this, so for them this was unexpected. I don’t know what is going to happen but I can’t wait to see if Jon is going to ride on one of those Dragons, perhaps Rhaegal, the one named after his father.
– Varys and Tyrion
I liked this scene because I really like Varys, and every scene with him is always interesting. He is such a cool character and he has some of the best lines of the show. I laugh when Tyrion asked: “So what does it say?”
– RIP meme
Gendry is back everyone! And this is the official end of the very famous meme. The writers even hint at it when Davos said “I thought you might still be rowing.” When Davos said he had things to do in flee bottom I wasn’t expecting this… I was so happy to see him again, and it was also cool to see him swinging the hammer.
– Gendry introducing himself to Jon
This was another fun scene, with Davos telling Gendry not to reveal right away who he is and Gendry ignoring him and introducing himself to Jon. It’s cool to see how much Gendry resembles his father and Jon resembles Ned (even though he is not his real father but he raised him all the same). Now a reunion I’m really looking forward to see is the one between Arya and Gendry.
– Sam ignoring Gilly
Okay so for me this was the most important moment of the episode, and of course Sam had to ignore Gilly. SO for the first time, we discover that Rheagar and Lyanna actually married, which means that Jon is not a bastard but he is real Targaryen and has an even higher claim to the Iron Throne than Daenerys. This was HUGE!
– Suicide Squad of Westeros
Okay, so this was actually my favorite moment because I got to see my absolute favorite character of the show: the Hound! I was hoping that the Brotherhood without Banners would stop in Winterfell before heading North but alas! I’m just going to have to wait for the reunion between the two Stark girls and the Hound. Anyways this scene was soo cool, I laugh when Tormund asked for Brienne, and seeing this random group of people going behind the wall was so epic!
This is it for this week. So what did you think of this week’s episode? Did you like it or not? What did you think about the ending and what do you think will happen next week? As always, let me know your thoughts in the comments below, this is all, for now, see you next week.
