Would the Night King fly an undead dragon? Would Jon and Dany finally have sex?
These were some of the questions fans wanted answers to in “Game of Thrones” season 7 finale, titled “The Dragon and the Wolf.”
The episode paved way for the epic beginning of the end, and at this point, the only safe character might just be Littlefinger.
Pulse Movies has put together seven moments from the episode which aired on Sunday, August 27, 2017.
Check them out;
1. A meeting is held to convince Cersei to join the fight against the Night King
Aside from Bran, Sansa, Arya and Littlefinger, every other character you can think of was in King’s Landing as part of the meeting held to ask Cersei for a truce so they can all join forces against the Night King.
As expected, Cersei thinks there are no White Walkers.
After the Hound presented her with the captured wight, Cersei agreed to fight alongside her enemies.
“The crown accepts your truce,” Cersei said.“Until the dead are defeated, they are the true enemy.”
But, we are talking about Cersei, who always wants something in return. She demanded that Jon Snow remains in Winterfell as the King in the North and not take sides in the battle.
But after Jon says he already pledged his allegiance to Dany and can’t serve two queens, Cersei takes back her support.
It took a conversation between her and Tyrion before she finally agreed to join the fight.
“A darkness is coming for us all,” Cersei finally said. “We will face it together and when the great war is over, perhaps you’ll remember I chose to help, with no promises or assurances from any of you.”
2. Cersei betrays her new allies
This shouldn’t come as a surprise to some of us, but it does to some others, that Cersei was lying when she said she would fight alongside Jon and Dany.
She noticed that Dany was missing one dragon, which means they can be killed or vulnerable. She told Jamie that just the Dragons, Unsullied and Dothraki won’t be able to withstand the Night King for long.
Cersei would rather have the White Walkers defeat her enemies, and by the time they head South for her, she would be ready for them.
It turns out that thanks to their deal with the Iron Bank, they were able to buy a mercenary troop in Essos.
Surprised at her sister’s decision, Jaime decided to head North.
Cersei then warned that he will be charged with treason if he turns against her, but for the first time, he goes against his sister’s wish and heads North to join the war.
3. Cleganebowl doesn’t happen, but it’s confirmed
You know how much we all wanted the Clegane brothers to battle to death in this episode? Well, that didn’t happen, but it’s confirmed.
The Hound noticed his now zombified brother during the meeting at King’s Landing.
He walked up to him and asked, “remember me?”
“You know who’s coming for you. You’ve always known,” he told the Mountain, confirming that one day, viewers will have the anticipated Cleganebowl.
4. Goodbye Littlefinger
Littlefinger continued his scheme to pit the Stark sisters against each other. He tried to convince Sansa that Arya came to Winterfell to kill her in revenge for not defending their family.
Unfortunately for him and as predicted by fans, the Stark sisters had been playing him all along.
Sansa summoned a meeting with the other Stark siblings and the Northern lords present.
During the meeting, she accused Lord Baelish of treason and murder – thanks to Bran’s skills, they know all of Littlefinger’s atrocities.
“Family against family, sister against sister,”Sansa said to him. “It’s what you did to our mother and Aunt Lysa, and what you tried to do to us.”
Littlefinger kneels and begs for mercy. His pleas are cut short by Arya who cuts his throat with his own knife.
At least, he is now safe from the common enemy that brings a kind of death.
But knowing the littlefinger and wildly thinking, one wouldn’t put it beyond him to manipulate his way to the top of the army of the dead if he is brought back to life.
5. Jon Snow is the right heir to the Iron Throne
In one of Bran Stark’s visions, it is revealed thatRhaegar and Lyanna were legitimately married after the Targaryen’s marriage to Elia Martellwas annulled.
This makes Jon Snow the legitimate heir to the Iron Throne. His name was also revealed to beAegon Targaryen.
Bran and Sam immediately sent him a raven about his true parentage.
6. Jon and Daenerys finally have that anticipated incest sex
Well, it finally happened – the incest sex GOT fans desperately wanted.
Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow finally consummated their attraction while on a boat sailing to the North.
Tyrion was standing outside the door with a concerned look on his face as he realized what was happening. Let’s pretend that wasn’t creepy.
Anyway, while he isn’t aware that Jon is Dany’s nephew, he is wise enough to know that this changes a lot of things.
7. The Wall has fallen
The season came to an end with a helplessTormund and Beric watching the Night King destroy the wall.
They saw the Night King emerge with anundead Viserion at his command. The later breathes blue flame at the wall, melting the wall and paving way for the beginning of the greatest war on “Game of Thrones.”
“Game of Thrones” will return for its final season in 2018, with just six episodes.
And we shall hold watch for the lonely months that are to come for us…for this seed planted in us will never die.
