Game of Thrones: 703


"I brought together fire and ice", she said. It's finally happened; the long-awaited Jon and Dany meeting. It didn't exactly go well. Not terrible, but not well. Eventually, Dany agreed to let him mine dragon glass, but she doesn't seem interested at all in the white walkers.

While Jon is brooding in the south, Sansa is handling things reasonably well in Winterfell. Then Bran shows up. Displaying normal human emotion, Sansa hugs him and wants to catch up. Bran is like "I need to talk to Jon." and "I'm the three-eyed raven. Sorry your second husband was such a jerk". I really don't like Bran.

As promised, Greyjoy brings Cersei a gift; Ellaria and her daughter. Cersei, in an act of revenge, chains both in the dungeon, poisons the daughter, and promises Ellaria will remain chained until her daughter rots. Cersei takes revenge seriously. To be honest, I've become a bit desensitized to her evil; it just doesn't have the effect on me it once did.

For a bit of good news, Sam officially cured Jorah. Hooray! He's leaving to join Dany, of course, and Sam only got in a little bit of trouble for breaking all the rules.

So, Tyrion, who I love, came up with a master plan to take Casterly Rock, which only kind of worked. The Unsullied technically invaded, but Jaime had cleared out most of the Lannister troops and the Greyjoys, now the Lannister's ally, burned all the Unsullied's ships while they were fighting the decoy army. This decoy army, I feel bad for them. Jaime knew they were going to die. Did he hand-pick them or was it random?

Anyway, while the decoy army was fighting the Unsullied, Jaime led the real army to Highgarden. Not known as great fighters, the Highgarden troops pretty much died as soon as they saw the Lannister army.

The final scene, the one between Jaime and Oleena Tyrell, was, in my opinion, the best scene of the episode. I knew, Lady Tyrell knew, everyone knew, she wasn't going to make it out of that room alive. I was really hoping, as she drank the poison, she'd get around to telling Jaime it was she who poisoned Joffrey. And, of course, she did. The look on Jaime's face. Priceless.

I am going to miss her, but she went out like a boss.
