Web Series: Game of Thrones

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The wait is finally over. Game of Thrones 7 season finale is out and there are some interesting developments, for the next and final season to build on. The finale starts with Ser Bronn talking to Jaime Lannister as the Unsullied army and Dothraki army march towards King’s Landing.

Cersei Lannister, Jaime Lannister, Euron Greyjoy wait for Daenerys Targaryen to arrive for the ‘truce meeting’ which she does in her signature style – making at entrance riding a dragon. While Daenerys’ team manages to spook them with the night walker they captured, Cersei doesn’t want to enter into agreement, without Jon Snow agreeing to not taking sides in the Lannister/Targaryen war. Jon says he has already shown fealty to the Dragon Queen, and Cersei doesn’t want any agreement at all.

But after a not-so-happy conversation with brother Tyrion, Cersei agrees to send her army to the North to fight the Night Walkers. Jon and Theon have some talk and, Theon finally finds the courage to save sister Yara.

After all this arrangement, Cersei has some evil plans. As Jaime is busy making preparations for his army to march north, Cersei tells him to make no such plans, as she will not obey her word. She would rather have the night walkers and Daenerys’ army fight and then face the winner in a battle.

Tormund mounted on the Wall, sees The Army of the Dead marching towards him. As the night walkers look towards the sky, The Night King is seen riding Viseron, now the undead dragon. Viseron manages to destroy a portion of The Wall, allowing The Army entrance to the Seven Kingdoms.

What’s WOW: The Dragon and the Wolf is a perfect season finale. The Stark sisters uniting against Lord Petyr Baelish is the best surprise in the finale episode. How Arya and Sansa found out about Baelish’s evil wish to divide them is a back story, but you don’t care about it when Arya finally executes him. The other best thing is watching Viserion, as the undead dragon, spewing the blue ice (or cold fire, whatever). It manages to give you the chills (literally).

What’s Blah: The episode duration can get a bit overwhelming, not that it bothers much. But it is way better to have an episode that conveys much in minimum time. However, considering that season 8 episodes will all be an hour long, one must enjoy this one.

Parting Shot: The finale episode of Game of Thrones season 7 answers a lot of things, yet also complicates some. Jon and Daenerys finally getting intimate makes things uneasy as Bran Stark and Samwell Tarly talk of Jon’s parentage and confirm him being a Targaryen. Cersei telling both her brothers that she is pregnant makes us feel she is actually not. But who knows?
