You know the drill, spoilers ahead. Last night’s episode of “Game of Thrones” titled “Eastwatch” was of course tremendous. Episode 5 of Season 7 was all over Westeros and covered many important developments, new alliances, and huge theories coming to fruition. Twitter brought the funny, the snarky, and the shock of the latest episode of “GoT.”
Daenerys Targaryen demands that all of the captured soldiers “bend the knee” or else.
Khaleesi then had Drogon roast Randyll and Dickon Tarly, making Samwell the lord of his house.
Jon Snow met Drogon face-to-face and even got to pet the glorious beast.
It turned out that Drogon is a good boy.
Gendry has finally stopped rowing.
You have the Magnificent 7, a Westeros fighting force for the ages featuring Thoros of Myr, Beric Dondarrion, the Hound, Gendry Waters, Ser Jorah Mormont, Tormund, and Jon Snow.
The only things that can stop this mighty militia is an army of dead or maybe them killing each other. Tormund doesn’t like Jorah because his father used to hunt wildlings as Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch. Gendry doesn’t like Beric Dondarrion and Thoros of Myr because they sold him off to Melisandre, who tried to bang him to death. But they’re all one big zombie killing family now and will have to put their differences aside to capture a white walker.
Littlefinger was being his usual crafty, creepy, and conniving self.
But Arya Stark took a page out of Petyr Baelish’s book and was extra sneaky when she stole a scroll from his room.
Gilly makes the discovery of a lifetime, but Sam Tarly was too busy.
In one of the books, High Septon Maynard wrote that he “issued an annulment for a Prince ‘Ragger’ and remarried him to someone else at the same time.” Rhaegar Targaryen got married to Lyanna Stark and had a secret wedding in Dorne. Meaning that Jon Snow is the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark and is the rightful heir to the Iron Throne. Not Danerys.
And another “Game of Thrones” episode got me like.
Here are the Twitter reactions to last week’s epic “Spoils of War” episode.
