Game Of Thrones Recap - Season 7 Premiere - Dragonstone
Thrones is back with a classic set-up the pieces for the season episode. I mean there were literal tables with pieces on them at the end of it. So the pieces are set and I’m primed. Let’s goooo.
Direwolf Badassery - Not too much. I hold out hope
Hardhome Pt 2 Or Nah - Not yet, but with three wight Giants and a giant army literally made up of the winds of winter you know this showdown is coming and it’s going to be so damn epic
A lot has happened in the real world since Thrones went off the air and I feel like the election of President Trump has given this thing a weirdly more prescient (big word alert) tone. I loved the line about “yesterday’s wars don’t matter any more” which seems to really drive up the metaphoric coming crisis of the white walkers aka climate change. Additionally, the montage of the Citadel ,a place harrowed for its knowledge, seemed to portray a bunch of old men shitting and eating. Truly an elite institution. The citadel is FAKE NEWS.
First theory of the season - Jaime Lannister is gonna kill Cersei just like he did the Mad King. He knows when someone is crazy and needs to be put down and you can see that inkling behind his still dope armor.
Ever since he said “I am the storm” before killing his uncle - Euron Greyjoy has always been a pretty badass character, but I think his rock star act is a little thin this year. Let’s hope he starts wrecking people soon.
Ser Beric Dondarrion is gonna have a huge part to play in this showdown. You don’t sit around by a fire, have your buddy (or half buddy) see a trippy vishion (whoah bro, arrowhead mountains) and talk about how you want to have your part in the story get played without it being important.
Love Bran at the wall and that Night’s Watch OG Ed is the one that welcomes them, but I think that Bran is a literal magnet for the wrath of the Night’s King. The wall is going down this season.
Cannot wait for the battle at Eastwatch by the Sea. See you there.
