Game of Thrones S7.04 review: "Season 7 goes from strength to strength"

Game of Thrones

Here's Why Jaime Lannister Is Probably Still Alive on Game of Thrones

The episode began in WInterfell. Jon lets him live because he helped Sansa escape the Boltons. While he was recovering in bed, an assassin was sent to kill him, carrying this very expensive Valyrian Steel dagger, which at the time belonged to Robert Baratheon.

During their conversation, Bran quotes Littlefinger's comment from season 3 episode 6.

Season 7 has been rewarding fans with all kinds of nods to the first six seasons, including a Season 1 callback for Arya Stark at the gates of Winterfell, similar to her struggle to get past the King's Landing guards back in Season 1. At the moment, he's a man caught between two queens who are willing and capable to use any means necessary to win this war, and the man known as the Kingslayer has to be skeptical of them both. Now, I'm gonna skip right to the end here and reveal that it's Bronn, a conclusion to which many fans came to the second they saw it. Everything hung on the line throughout, and we still don't know what will happen to Jaime. They go meet with Bran, who is becoming more robotic by the minute with all the memories he is now responsible more. For Sansa, it lends credence to the kill-list she brought up earlier in the crypt and with Bran, and despite all she has faced herself, it gives her pause.

When Brienne asked who taught her how to fight, she replies "no one". Sansa, on the other hand, looks perplexed.

What scheme is she cooking up involving her younger, skilful sister? Proud? Frustrated that she can't do the same?

Presumably these are the events depicted on the cave art Jon discovered in Dragonstone, which serves as an interesting point in his attempts to convince Daenerys that the invasion of the White Walkers is real.

When the White Walkers invaded, the First Men attempted to fight back, but failed on their own.

She still wants Jon to bend the knee though, if he wants her help to protect the North. The clip also hints that Dany's trust advisors, Tyrion and Varys, don't agree with her actions, as Varys can be heard telling his friend: "You need to find a way to make her listen". Especially with the signature Jon Snow snarl.

So when we recently caught up with Shepard on the set of a top-secret amusing or Die project, we asked the 42-year-old actor to take on our Wildfire Fast Five quiz - and apparently he's a big fan of the smoldering sexual tension between Daenerys and Jon.

We take a look at 10 things we learned in Spoils of War. "Your strategy has lost us the Iron Islands, Dorne and the Reach", she says. The army is surprised by a Dothraki attack, complete with dragons. This is the first time we have seen a dragon cut loose in battle, and it was more than worth the wait.

We also get to see some of the new tech used to shoot the scene. They literally set more stunt people on fire than any other Hollywood production ever, just for this scene.
