My 150 Word Recap of Last Night’s Game of Thrones (Stormborn, S7E2)
150 words is the minimum I have to write for these blogs I’m required to do. So, here goes.
The sides for the “final showdown” are really starting to take shape. It looks like we’ll have on one side:
Daenyrys Targaryen along with her Unsullied army, Dothraki hordes, The Dornish army, the Greyjoys, and possibly the Tyrells. Also, Jon Snow along with his army of the North and his Wildling allies. Oh, and three full-grown fire-breathing dragons.
On the other side: Cersei and Jamie Lannister along with three of the seven kingdoms of Westeros, Euron Greyjoy’s naval fleet and of course, the riches of House Lannister.
The red witch, Melisandre arrives at Dragonstone and tells Daenyrys about Jon Snow. I think there will be a reckoning when Ser Davos comes with Jon from Winterfell and decides it’s time for some payback on Melisandre for her role in the killing of his friend, Stannis Baratheon’s little girl whose name I can’t remember.
The Unsullied Eunuch Gray Worm consummates his love for Daenyrys’ translator, whose name I also can’t remember. He can’t wreck her with his pecker so he has to go south with the mouth.
It’s implied that the fire-breathing dragons will end up fighting the White Walkers and their horde of the undead, which would be awesome. Also, Cersei is shown a giant crossbow that can be used to kill a dragon. This, by the way, is something stolen directly from The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. Also stolen from Tolkien? George R.R. Martin’s fondness for having the initials “R.R.” in the middle of his name.
