How many people that we've seen on the show can say they died without pain? But who was the best player this week? For anyone wondering if Sansa has truly become a cold-hearted schemer, her reaction to seeing her little brother should put those concerns to rest. Jon is at Dragonstone to mine dragonglass - and Dany agreed to allow him to harvest the obsidian and fashion it into weapons to fight White Walkers and wights. If Davos unveiled Melisandre brought back Jon Snow from the dead, there's probably an even smaller chance Dany would help the King of the North. It would also make Daenerys Jon's aunt, something which isn't great news for fans shipping the characters.
Still believes her own PR too much ... "And then, I went straight to the end". Cersei agrees, but not until the war is won.
Will Cersei's ruthlessness lead to Jamie's downfall, or will Jamie try to take matters into his own hand (s)? We find this feisty matriarch, cornered after Jamie and the Lannister army take her home.
Even Stark ally Robert Baratheon who was behind the overthrowing of the Mad King, Aerys Targaryen, posed a threat - had he discovered Jon's true identity he would likely have either killed him or banished him, as he did with Daenerys and Viserys Targaryen, to protect his place on the Iron Throne.
Olenna's death is another major blow to Daenerys' team of allies. Perhaps Tyrion isn't as strong a military strategist as he thinks.
Cinching his title as the player of the week, Jaime didn't just march the majority of his armies out of Casterly Rock and camp out in the wild somewhere. Just left there in chains, with no hope of rescue, Ellaria will spend her remaining days longing for that sweet kiss of death from Cersei. In her final moments on screen she says, "Tell Cersei - I want her to know it was me". This works, but Greyworm and the Unsullied are surprised there are not as numerous Lannister army as there should be in this episode of Game of Thrones. Let's face it, no one really wins on this show. While poison wasn't his MO, Aerys Targaryen taunted the Starks without offering them a merciful death. Crossing Cersei in any way will provoke her; murdering her only daughter gets you the special treatment.
Speaking of Yara Greyjoy, she is taken hostage along with Ellaria (Indira Varma) and Ellaria's daughter and presented to Cersei (Lena Headey) as a gift from Euron. It's nearly too brutal to watch even though there is no violence involved.
And so the game continues.
Game Of Thrones season seven continues on HBO Sunday, and on Sky Atlantic on Mondays in the United Kingdom at 9pm.
