Littlefinger’s scheming earned him no rewards in season seven. He plotted lớn turn Sansa và Arya against one another, encouraging Sansa lớn see her little sister as a threat, and leading Arya to believe Sansa was a Lannister sympathiser who wanted to usurp Jon’s crown. With Bran’s help though, the sisters saw through Baelish’s plot & turned the tables by executing him for the murder of their aunt. Littlefinger’s throat was cut by Arya using the very dagger with which Bran was almost killed. Despite Littlefinger’s machinations, the Stark siblings ended the season united, recognising that “the lone wolf dies but the pack survives.”

Arya’s kill-list, which currently features: Cersei Lannister, Gregor Clegane, Ilyn Payne, Melisandre, và Beric Dondarrion, was what brought her back to Westeros. In the season seven premiere, she used her Faceless Men magic to disguise herself as the deceased Walder Frey and fatally poison his entire family in revenge for their collusion with the Lannisters at the Red Wedding. She left only Frey’s young bride to lớn tell the tale, telling her lớn spread the message “the North remembers.”

Next on Arya’s to-murder các mục was Queen Cersei, but on hearing (from Hot Pie! Hot Pie lives!) that Jon had reclaimed Winterfell from the Boltons, she diverted her journey to King’s Landing and instead headed North. On her way home, Arya encountered her direwolf Nymeria, who’d been living wild since being sent away lớn protect her from Cersei’s wrath in season one. They had a moment, và went their separate ways. Once at Winterfell, Brienne of Tarth agreed khổng lồ train with Arya, clearly impressed by her proficiency with a sword.

Oh, & Ed Sheeran was in it. He quý phái a song.

Someone whose name Arya struck off her các mục without killing, Sandor Clegane aka The Hound, continued his tìm kiếm for redemption with the Brotherhood Without Banners. Returning to the cottage of a farmer & his daughter the Hound had robbed in season four only khổng lồ find them dead, he buried the corpses in atonement for his earlier crime. At the cottage, Sandor had a vision in the flames of the Night King’s army, which pushed the group khổng lồ continue their journey North.


Bran, whose warging and greenseeing powers had enabled him to lớn use ravens lớn spy on the Night King’s army throughout the season, also learned some game-changing info about Jon Snow. Bran already knew that Jon wasn’t Ned Stark’s bastard, thinking him the love child of Prince Rhaegar Targaryen và Ned’s sister Lyanna. Not quite. Thanks khổng lồ Gilly reading through some old manuscripts at the Citadel, Samwell Tarly learned that Rhaegar had his marriage to lớn Elia Martell annulled, then remarried in secret. Jon’s true name is Aegon Targaryen and he’s therefore no bastard but a legitimate heir to the Iron Throne. Game-changer.


Samwell spent the first half of the season training to be a maester at the Citadel in Old Town under the tutelage of Archmaester Ebrose (Jim Broadbent). A frustrating time, Sam was mostly given grunt work and forbidden access lớn the texts he’d come there khổng lồ study in order lớn learn how to lớn defeat the white Walkers. He did however, learn that a vast seam of Dragonglass, a material able lớn kill trắng Walkers and Wights, was located underneath Dragonstone. He wrote to Jon about his discovery, which helped to lớn convince Jon to accept an invitation to Daenerys’ Westerosi base camp.

Sam rebelled against the archmaester’s rules by carrying out an experimental medical procedure on Ser Jorah Mormont, who’d come lớn the Citadel in search of a cure for his greyscale. In an especially gross sequence, Sam cured Ser Jorah, who then travelled to lớn Dragonstone to serve Dany.

After the Citadel’s maesters refused to act on Bran Stark’s warning to the Seven Kingdoms about the impending threat from the Night King, either believing it a fantasy or trusting in the impregnability of the Wall, Sam stole some restricted books, took Gilly and Little Sam, và headed North. There he met with Bran, where he learned of Jon’s true parentage and shared his knowledge of Jon’s father’s secret marriage.

Daenerys, meanwhile, had phối up siêu thị at her birthplace of Dragonstone (home lớn the Targaryens before Stannis Baratheon lived there) with a band of allies against Cersei, which included Tyrion, Varys, Yara & Theon Greyjoy, Olenna Tyrell and Dornish leader Ellaria Sand. Instead of flying her dragons straight khổng lồ King’s Landing & setting the place on fire like she wanted, Tyrion advised Dany lớn avoid slaughtering civilians and instead target Lannister family seat Casterly Rock. While the Greyjoy fleet would sail khổng lồ Dorne lớn mobilise Ellaria’s Dornish troops, the Unsullied would take the Lannister castle.

At least, that was the plan. What actually transpired was that Euron Greyjoy attacked his niece and nephew’s fleet en-route, killing two Sandsnakes and capturing Tyene and Ellaria Sand và Yara Greyjoy. Theon bottled the chance to lớn fight lớn save Yara và literally jumped ship before being rescued by the last surviving Greyjoy ship.


Theon và his Ironborn men returned lớn Dragonstone, where Jon Snow first threatened, then forgave Theon for betraying the Starks at Winterfell. Theon later began to lớn redeem himself when he engaged in a brutal fight with one of Yara’s men who had refused khổng lồ mount a rescue attempt for her. Mid-fight, Theon learned that a weakness can also be a strength when his opponent couldn’t injure him by kicking him in the nuts as, well, Ramsay had removed that particular vulnerability.

Speaking of eunuchs & vulnerability, Grey Worm và Missandei shared a lãng mạn scene in which he declared that he now had an unprecedented weakness—her. They shared a night of passion before he went off to lớn battle.

*

Missandei, it’s worth mentioning, had earlier raised an important nerdy translator point about Melisandre’s much-discussed prophecy about Azor Ahai ‘the prince that was promised’ who was destined khổng lồ bring an kết thúc to the impending darkness. In the original High Valyrian, ‘prince’ is genderless & could refer to lớn either a man or a woman, i.e. Dany is now very much a front runner for the position.

When the Unsullied arrived at Casterly Rock và found it all but undefended, it was clear they’d also been had. Anticipating his younger brother’s military tactics, Jaime Lannister had sacrificed the family seat in order to lớn lure the Unsullied fleet lớn a vulnerable position where Euron Greyjoy could destroy it. The Unsullied were thus stranded & preoccupied while the Lannister and Tarly armies sacked the Tyrell castle of Highgarden. Jaime’s plan seemed to go off without a hitch, và he killed Lady Olenna by making her drink poisoned wine. Before she died, Olenna confessed that it was her & not Tyrion who poisoned Jaime và Cersei’s son Joffrey at his wedding. Before she died, she wanted Cersei lớn know that.

Victorious from their defeat of Highgarden, with wagons of Tyrell gold safely transported khổng lồ King’s Landing ready to pay off the substantial Lannister debt lớn the Iron ngân hàng of Braavos, the Lannister & Tarly armies then suffered a surprise counter-attack by Dany, Drogon, and the Dothraki. Jaime’s army was routed & he nearly died trying to kill Dany, but Bronn stopped him at the last moment & saved his life.

Meanwhile, invited there by old pal Tyrion, Jon Snow và Davos travelled khổng lồ Dragonstone to lớn entreat Dany to lớn help fight the Night King. She was sceptical about his claims of an undead army marching South and demanded instead that he pledge his allegiance to lớn her. Like Mance Rayder before him, Jon Snow refused to lớn bend the knee, saying his Northern people would never accept her as their Queen because of the Targaryen family history. Dany more or less took Jon and Davos prisoner at Dragonstone, but humoured them by allowing them lớn mine the Dragonglass they wanted to fight the Night King.

Jon Snow having banished her in season six, his arrival at Dragonstone meant Melisandre left for Volantis to stay out of his way, but not before she và Varys had a frosty conversation in which she told him that both of them, Essosi by birth, were fated to lớn die in Westeros.

Once hostilities had thawed and Jon and Davos were allowed to leave Dragonstone, Davos took advantage of being down South khổng lồ go to King’s Landing and retrieve royal Baratheon heir Gendry, who’d been working as a smith in Flea Bottom ever since Davos rescued him from Melisandre’s clutches and sent him on his way in a little row boat. Gendry now carries a war-hammer, just like his father King Robert, and he knows how lớn use it.

During his time on Dragonstone, Jon became a more & more trusted advisor to lớn Dany, và her dragons even allowed him to stroke them (perhaps recognising his true Targaryen nature). Dany listened to lớn him when he told her not to burn Euron Greyjoy’s ships in retaliation for his attack so that the people wouldn’t see her as just another tyrant.

Earlier in the season, Tyrion và Varys had discussed concerns that Dany’s habit of burning people alive with her dragons might turn her into her despised father, the Mad King. Dany, in turn, expressed concern over Tyrion and Varys’ loyalty khổng lồ her. Things all got a bit testy.

It was Tyrion who noted that Jon was the latest heroic man to lớn fall in love with Dany, an observation she scoffed at until she realised it was true and she and Jon got hot và heavy in the chambers of her ship. Tyrion saw Jon enter Dany’s private quarters (stop tittering at the back) & foresaw trouble from their relationship. It was Jon who questioned Dany’s belief that she was unable to bear children following the witch’s curse in season one. Witches aren’t the most reliable of sources, he sensibly told her.

*

Dany and Jon’s steamy session came after she’d had flown her dragons to his rescue beyond the Wall. Khổng lồ convince sceptical Southerners of the Night King’s existence, Tyrion came up with the plan of bringing one of the trắng Walkers’ soldiers khổng lồ show-and-tell, so Jon, Ser Jorah, Gendry, & the Brotherhood Without Banners (incl. The Hound, Ser Beric Dondarrion and Thoros of Myr) volunteered for the job. Things got sticky, however, when they were attacked by a Wight-polar bear then surrounded by an army of Wights và stranded on a rock in a patch of ice for days.
