|Jon Snow and The Mother of Dragons|
After nearly 2 years of anticipation, the most exciting TV Show since Prison Break is back!
If you haven't seen the new episode - Spoiler Alert
|Shall We Begin?|
Tyrion opens the episode by poking fun at Varys for being an Eunuch. When asked why it's acceptable for Tyrion to badger Varys and not the other way around, Tyrion responds "Because I have balls and you don't."
Despite the tension in the air at Winterfell from having a Tygarean Queen, Dothraki savages, an army of Unsullied men and two fire-breathing beasts in their midst, It's a still a sweet homecoming for many: Jon reunites with Arya and Bran and quickly sets to work turning Winterfell in to the stage for a grand stand against the approaching army of the dead. Arya reunites with the Hound and Gendry. Tyrion and Sansa meet for the first time since Joffrey's "medding" (A new word I just made up for when someone is murdered at their wedding)
|The reunion we've all been waiting for|
No one has ever ridden a dragon except for Dany and only Tygareans can ride Dragons, that should have been a sign for Jon who's not always the quickest on the update but eventually gets there. If we have never seen an anchor to Jon and Dany's relationship, riding a dragon together and Jon showing her where he used to hunt as a kid is defintely one. They have a brief Jon-Dany moment and this is the moment the Dragons accepts him as one of their riders
|Bruh! Why are you sucking Mummy's face?|
Meanwhile back at King's Landing, Cersei navigates her alliance with the Golden Compnay and Euron Greyjoy who has never relented in his pursuit of gracing the Queen's bed sheets. Cersei is put off by his advances- "If you want a Queen, earn her" only to give up the cookie the same night. She also employs Bronn the Sellsword to murder her two brothers. At this point, it's quite clear she's playing a reckless, short sighted version of the Game of Thrones and her decison making is questionable.
In her defense, She is in a vulnerable place, having pushed away the only man she's ever truly loved, Jaime.
|"If you want a Queen, follow me to the bedroom"|
The scene was the perfect preamble leading up to the moment where he tells Jon what we already know about his real parents. Jon reacts by throwing things in front of the truth; he doesn't want to believe Ned lied to him his whole life, he'd have to challenge Dany for the Iron Throne.
|Sam learns about the death of his Father and Brother|
The first episode ends on a puzzling note as the King Slayer sets his eye on Winterfell's most eligible Serial Killer, Bran. The thoughts that must be going through Jaime's mind on realizing the little boy he pushed out of a 20 storey building didn't plummet to his death. Can you feel the drama in the air? the smell of forbidden romances, the dread of the Night King on the back of Viserion, the scheming of Varys, Tyrion, Davos, Qyburn and Arya
