Game Of Thrones Season 7 - Episode 7 \/\/FREE\\\\


"The Dragon and the Wolf" is the seventh and final episode of the seventh season of HBO's fantasy television series Game of Thrones, and the 67th episode overall. It was written by series co-creators David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, and directed by Jeremy Podeswa. The title of the episode refers to the sigils of House Targaryen (the Dragon) and House Stark (the Wolf) and their newfound alliance.




Game of Thrones Season 7 - Episode 7



Leading up to the seventh-season finale, Benioff and Weiss revealed that it was always planned for the penultimate season to end with the destruction of the Wall, and the White Walker army crossing into the Seven Kingdoms. Weiss noted, "The wall's kept these things out for eight thousand years and there's no real reason it can't keep doing that unless something puts a hole in the Wall. There's one thing on the board from the beginning that is now big enough to do that and that's a dragon."[9] They also felt it was essential for the seventh-season finale to contrast well with previous season finale episodes, particularly the sixth-season finale, "The Winds of Winter", which Benioff stated had a more "triumphant ending" as opposed to something "much more horrific" with the conclusion of "The Dragon and the Wolf".[9]


"The Dragon and the Wolf" was directed by Jeremy Podeswa. He joined the series as a director in the fifth season, his first episode being "Kill the Boy", which was followed by "Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken", for which he was nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series.[10][11] He further directed two more episodes in the series' sixth season, and also directed the seventh season's premiere episode, "Dragonstone".[12][13] This would be Podeswa's final episode as a director for the series, as he would later reveal that he would not be returning for the series' final season.[14]


"The Dragon and the Wolf" was praised by critics, who listed the meeting at the Dragonpit, Cersei's lack of cooperation to defeat the White Walkers, Aidan Gillen's performance as Littlefinger, and the demolition of the Wall as highlights of the episode.[24][25] The episode has received an 88% rating on the review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes from 64 reviews, with an average score of 8.93 out of 10. The site's consensus reads: "While much slower in pace than the season that preceded it, 'The Dragon and the Wolf' delivered satisfying conclusions to several story arcs, and masterfully set up the series' final season."[26]


"The Dragon and the Wolf" is the seventh and final episode of the seventh season of Game of Thrones. It is the sixty-seventh episode of the series overall. It premiered on August 27, 2017 on HBO. It was written by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, and directed by Jeremy Podeswa.


Their battle of Lannister wills is the other crucial half of this finale, bringing everything from season 1 back to the fore. While Game of Thrones has never been more spectacularly fantastical than in its endgame of dragons vs. zombies, it still largely boils down to two families. The first is the Starks, and how they will in the end carry on through any storm. And the other is that of the Lannisters, a family with everything, but whose own grievances and doomed flaws will devastate one another until they sit upon a pile of smoldering ash. And honestly, Dany might just be the fuse to make that smoky ruin commence.


That opens up a whole new can of worms about what will happen in season 8 and in the endgame, which I will dive into in a separate feature to be published by early Monday evening at the latest. In the meantime, suffice to say that even though Game of Thrones has made monsters of us all, and gotten an entire swath of TV-viewing Americans to cheer on incest, that I am doubtful this romance will have a moment as blissful as that boat ride. And if children truly do become involved, it will only make things more troubling and confounding as Dany processes that her nephew is also her baby daddy.


And with that, Game of Thrones completes its journey into the endgame. I genuinely hope that the aforementioned plot contrivances are over. There are no more subplots to wrap up with season 7 leaving the Tyrells, Martells, Tarlys, and Littlefinger in the dustbin of history. The Starks are united, the Lannisters have finally completely imploded, and Cersei is making her final moves to screw over the living by sending sellswords after anyone who survives the Battle of Winterfell.


The season 7 finale of Game of Thrones was one of the most important, insane, and ultimately satisfying episodes HBO has given us to date. Between epic reveals and the crumbling of the Wall, this was the perfect episode to wrap up a too-short season, and to usher in the final stretch.


I won't say it was a perfect episode. It suffered from some of the same issues the rest of the season has suffered from, namely a feeling that things have been rushed along too much, to the detriment of the show. But still, I can't help but feel excited by what transpired. Let's briefly go over each of the Very Big Reveals And Events that just transpired, before taking a deeper dive.


So again, as much as I love the fact that Littlefinger was ultimately unveiled as the mastermind behind most of the events that transpired over the past few seasons, in the end it was all a big farce that never needed to happen. Filler, and worse than that, the kind of filler designed to screw with viewers in the most hamfisted of ways. I maintain that, in spite of it all, this was a dirty trick and nothing more. If there were some greater 'game of thrones' behind it all, I'd eat my hat. Alas, it was all a cheap mummer's play with no substance.


Overall, I think this was a good episode. It was a Big Deal sort of episode and it tied up nicely all the disparate strands leading up to this point. Some brilliant CGI, gorgeous music, and fun meetings between long-separated characters made it a joy to watch. What I liked less was how preposterous so many of the things leading up to it were, and how rushed this entire season felt. I'm serious when I say that two or three more episodes would have helped make this entire season feel less chaotic and janky. Oh, and a better reason to get those dragons beyond the Wall. Even if it had just been Daenerys going up there to see for herself (minus the capture-a-wight silliness) and the Night King had nabbed Viserion, that would have been fine.


Although it's heartening that Arya was not acting so completely out of character for the past few episodes, her and Sansa's scheme against the master schemer is yet another development riddled with logical problems. It makes the greater part of their screen time this season pure performance, meaning we didn't get to spend time with the real sisters in favor of setting up this big reveal. Littlefinger won't be missed, but we worry about what the sisters will be up to in Season 8.


The running time for Game of Thrones season seven episodes has been a subject of uncharacteristically high interest, partly because of the novelty of a shorter season, but also because of the reports showing information differing between HBO.com and Entertainment Weekly. Though a few minutes here or there have been known to change in the HBO schedule, if it is to be believed we now know the running time of every season seven episode. And the last two are record-length!


My head-canon for the 707 timing had been 75 minutes, so 81 is a nice surprise. With even the penultimate episode (with 706 as the equivalent of episode 9s in previous seasons) being so long, it looks like they are really trying to top the end of season six, which was stunning.


The pair may have been talking about the Unsullied army in front of them, but the Lannister's comment also worked as an analysis for the episode and even the season as a whole, whether taken literally - tonight seeing the Jon and Daenerys sex scene fans had craved, or figuratively - season 7 seeing a woman save men from a foolish escapade and not for the first time in the show's history.


"Game of Thrones" season seven may have left us with a lot of unanswered questions, but we haven't stopped obsessing over every small detail and piece of foreshadowing in the series. Throughout the season, we analyzed the callbacks and references hidden on each episode. Now, we've compiled a mega-list of the most important of these details.


On season three, episode four, Varys and Olenna had a secretive conversation about where their loyalties lie. Varys warned Olenna not to trust Littlefinger, telling her that he would be King of the Ashes if he needed to.


But based on the season seven episode, it looks like the lesson finally sunk in for Davos, who has become more and more literate as the series has gone on (mostly thanks to Shireen's teachings, R.I.P.). Now it's Jon's turn to learn the difference between "less" and "fewer."


Would the Dany we've known for seven seasons really perform such a brutal execution of a key Westerosi Lord and his heir, with no time for counsel? Maybe, maybe not. Would Arya really be fooled by Littlefinger's game, even for a moment? Unlikely. Would Cersei just let Tyrion come and go from her capital like that? Seriously unlikely. Would Davos really find Gendry so fast, then wink at the audience that he thought the kid was "still rowing"? Come on.


"The Battle of the Bastards on ice," some Twitter wags called it. Indeed, the siege of the wights at the center of this episode was a cold echo of last season's pitch-perfect war for Winterfell, right down to the cavalry-like rescue.


In the true spirit of Game of Thrones, Sunday's finale of Season 7 of the HBO show left fans with not just one, but several cliffhangers. Don't hold your breath for any answers, though, as the premiere for Season 8 might be even further in the future than originally expected. But for anyone who still needs their weekly Thrones fix, HBO has just released the first episode of a new series of YouTube mini documentaries titled "Game Revealed," and the first episode talks about none other than the infamous Ed Sheeran scene from the beginning of the season. 041b061a72
