Game Of Thrones season 7 is fast racing towards the finishing line. We now have just 1 episode remaining, before the long wait for Game Of Thrones season 8 begins. We will be talking about some of the details from the latest episode that you might’ve missed. You can also check our analysis of episode one, two, three, four.
1. A new addition to the opening credits scene
During the opening credits for the latest episode, we got to see a new addition and it was the Night’s Watch castle of Eastwatch-by-the-Sea, which was also the name of the episode. So far in the series, we have hardly heard about Eastwatch and this was the first time we got to see the Night’s Watch castle.
2. Daenerys refers to her Break the Wheel speech
After defeating the Lannisters and the Tarlys, the Dothraki round-up all the surviving people and she tells them that Cersei might’ve spoken many things about her but they aren’t true and she adds, “All I want to destroy is the wheel that has rolled over rich and poor to the benefit of no one but the Cersei Lannisters of the world.”
3. Another reference to Jon being a Targaryen
After Daenerys returned to Dragonstone, she landed near Jon Snow and Drogon started charging towards Jon, but Jon stood firm and he took out a glove and patted Drogon and there seemed to be a connection between them. Even Daenerys seemed to be surprised, seeing how friendly Drogon was with Jon.
4. The Night’s Watch has already sent a Wight to King’s Landing in season 1
During the first season, a fought against a Wight and somehow managed to save the Lord Commander and before Jon burned the Wight, he managed to chop-off one hand. Later Jeor Mormont told Jon that he had sent Ser Alliser Thorne to King’s Landing with the hand so that the King would realize that the White Walkers were real.
5. Davos joked about Gendry rowing all these seasons
Once Tyrion went to meet Jaime, where he managed to find Gendry. “I wasn’t sure I’d find you,” he said. “Thought you might still be rowing.” This is a reference to the joke that’s extremely popular among the fans. We had last seen Gendry in the 3rd season when he was seeing rowing away from Dragonstone and over the years, fans started wondering if he was still rowing somewhere around Dragonstone.
6. Gendry’s war hammer
In the latest episode we met Gendry and we also found out that he preferred using a War hammer and that’s an interesting choice of a weapon as Robert Baratheon was known for using a war hammer and he even killed Rhaegar Targaryen using his war hammer. Gendry showed us during the episode that he has his father’s strength.
7. Another guest appearance
English actor and comedian, Kevin Eldon was one of the soldiers and this wasn’t his first appearance on the show. We last saw him in the 6th season, in Braavos, where he was part of the theater group and he played the role of Ned Stark.
8. Cersei’s pregnancy
Cersei surprised Jaime and the fans by announcing that she was pregnant. Jaime was very happy to hear this news but he and Cersei should be really careful as things might not end well for them. In the 5th season, we were shown a prophecy by Maggy the witch, who told young Cersei that she would have 3 children.
9. Bonding between Jon and Gendry
Gendry chose to ignore Ser Davos’ advice and introduced himself as Robert’s bastard and he said that they should trust each other just as their fathers trusted each other. They quickly bonded with each other and then Jon told Gendry that he was a lot leaner and Gendry replied by saying that Jon was shorter.
10. Good fortune in the wars to come
Before Jon left dragonstone, he Jon tells Daenerys “I wish you good fortune in the wars to come.” When Ned Stark reached the Tower, he met Ser Arthur and on asking where his sister was, Dayne replied, “I wish you good fortune in the wars to come.” Benjen Stark used an incomplete version of the same quote when he dropped off Bran and Meera at the Wall. “I wish you both good fortune.”
11. Gilly accidentally revealed that Rhaegar had married Lyanna Stark
We had another reference to Jon Snow being a Targaryen in the latest episode, when Gilly asked Samwell about the meaning of the word “annulment.” The White Walkers told Gilly that, “it’s when a man sets aside his lawful wife.”This revelation has now confirmed that Jon Snow isn’t a bastard and he has the strongest claim to the Iron Throne!
12. I’m tired of reading about the achievements of better men
Samwell’s father had said the same thing in previous season, when Samwell reached Horn Hill and was having dinner with Randyll. “I thought the Night’s Watch might make a man of you,” Randyll told Samwell. “Something resembling a man at least. You’ve managed to stay soft and fat, your nose buried in books. Spending your life reading about the achievements of better men. I’d wager you still can’t sit a horse, or wield a sword.”
