Hearing that Bran is just at the start of discovering his abilities certainly makes for some interesting paths for the youngster to tread down moving forward. Is it finally time to ally with Jon Snow so she can claim the Iron Throne? Season 7 continues with Episode 4, "The Spoils of War", on Sunday, August 6 at 9 p.m. on HBO.
Simply put, tension and bitterness is what defines the majority of relationships in the show. It's like The Walking Dead crashing into The Wire, obliterating several seasons' worth of intricately built-up tensions and plotlines in favor of large-scale destruction porn. Do you think Bran can still be trusted?
Now, speaking of Arya and Sansa, if you're getting anxious to see them on screen together again, we have good news for you!
- John says he will give up the title of The King of North. But Danny has to help him fight White Walkers.
Well, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Isaac Hempstead-Wright - who plays Bran - has discussed why his character was acting so cold, and it all revolves around Bran's transition from a young boy into his new role as the Three-Eyed Raven. The dagger in question is the Valyrian steel weapon that an assassin uses in a murder attempt against Bran in season one. Expectations for this moment were as high as they could get; everyone knew that this had to happen eventually.
"Bran really at this stage is not the Three-Eyed Raven". It took Tormund to supply the necessary context (Jon killed Mance to save him from being burned alive). The only thing that's certain is that her homecoming could be deadly for at least one of the castle's current inhabitants. She's beginning to realize - as it takes plenty of women a lifetime to do - that she doesn't need to defer to every man in her vicinity.
Now, as we know Sansa Stark's hair reflects the mood she's in, the feelings she's feelings, or what she's actually experiencing. The decision to remark on how beautiful she looked the night she was raped? It tells me that not you are not only a 'Game of Thrones' fan (because who isn't?) but you have also watched the third, latest, and badass episode of Season 7. Her acknowledgment of him was 100 percent provisional, and the old conventions we thought she'd outgrown, having seen more of the world, reasserted themselves instantly.
It almost seems like Sansa might get the chance to be something resembling content, for once.
This could be read as a complaint - and I do wish the show was slightly more transparent about how much time is passing - but at the same time, this is probably inevitable.
This is the final episode and hence also going to have a lot of frantic action.
