Dude Watches – Game of Thrones – S07E07

What do you get when you combine Aunt/Nephew incest, fire-breathing ice dragons, and the execution of traitorous brothel owners? The season finale of  Game of Thrones, of course!

Not that there’s a lot to unpack here that you loyal watchers didn’t already pick up on, but yeah, Bran and Sam reveal John’s true name, John then gets in on with Dany, Tyrion has a reunion with Cersei that goes his way(ish) while Jaimie has a similar meeting that does not. Carry on my wayward, son! Am I right?! The Hound and the Mountain have a staring contest, Cersei is NOT a fan of the Walking Dead, and, oh, by the way, she wants to betray everyone (OF COURSE, duh– you knew that was coming) again. Finally, the super mutant undead ice dragon messes up the wall like democracy in Berlin in the 80s. *I think that’s right.*

Anyhow, that’s it for Dude Watches Game of Thrones…

Join us next time for a show that probably isn’t nearly as good. (Editor’s note: SOLD IT!)

Ohhh snap, we have an undead ice dragon! Man, we love Game of Thrones— travel issues aside. Dead dragons, LOTS of wights(?), and some pretty strange physics make this episode the most”Hollywood-movie-like-episode” of the show so far. We pretty much agree, this episode is what GoT is like when George Martin doesn’t have a book written to explain the intricacies of the story. Pretty solid scores from us across the board, and like Caleb says, “A Game of Thrones ‘7’ is a Jessica Jones ’10.'” We also make predictions on who is going to die next episode and we’re all pretty hopeful it’s Little Finger. Eff that guy– he needs to go.

On a separate note, Dude Watches copyrights the buddy cop adventures of Clegane and Giantsbane. Don’t steal our ideas! We wont write the shit, but it was our idea first!

Sansa and Arya are heading towards a fight, Baelish is getting ducks in rows, and the Westerosi A-Team is heading north of the wall in this week’s Lord of the Rings Game of Thrones. Randyll and Dickon Tarley are hot for Daenerys, refusing to bend the knee. Sam’s pissed at the lack of interest of the impending end of mankind, so he bounces–all while Gilly confirms Jon’s legitimacy as a Targaryen, vice a Snow/bastard. Tyrion and Jaime have a bit of a chat while Davos is just out getting Gendry back.

This episode was not all sword-swinging and battles, but there was a definite build toward the penultimate season 7 episode. There was a lot of character development and exposition, though the time-to-travel is definitely coming into question. While Caleb and Cord weren’t as enthralled with this week’s episode (I stand by my 10!), they rated it a respectable 8. Next week looks bad-ass, with Dondarion’s flaming sword! Who’s going to be killed? Anyone? A major character? Beric? Thoros? Drogon? WHO???

Game of Thrones scores another 10/10 with this episode, “The Spoils of War”. We’re treated to the happy reunion between Sansa and Arya and the awkward goodbye between Bran and Meera. We see Arya retrieving the dagger that was meant to kill Bran way back from Season 1. We’re witness to Arya manhandling the talented swordslady Brienne of Tarth. Jon and Davos disover the dragonglass. Daenerys has a total Neverending Story moment with Drogon and the Lannister Army. Bronn shoots a huge crossbow. Jaime, in an attempt to kill Daenerys, is tackled into Blackwater Rush before Drogon torches him. So many great scenes in this show, the shortest of this season, if not ever.

Toward the end of the show, Caleb and Will hypothesize on what might happen with Randyll Tarley and Sansa Stark. What are your predictions?

The hits keep on coming! Not only do D.B. Weiss and David Benioff have another outstanding episode, but Daenerys and company are dealt another devastating blow at Casterly Rock. Cersei gets some sweet revenge on Ellaria for poisoning and killing her only daughter, Myrcella. She’s going a step further with her revenge in forcing Ellaria to watch her daughter decompose–but that’s justice. Grey Worm and crew (through the magic of fast travel?) arrive at not-fully-defended Casterly Rock only for the camera to zoom in on Jaime in Highgarden, poisoning the Tyrell matriarch, Olenna. There’s a lot of poison going on in this show, actually. Sam does good work, and gets more work assigned to him; could the texts and scrolls he’s to copy contain secrets to help the defeat of the White Walkers? Sansa is flexing her leadership muscles in Winterfell. John is a free prisoner in Dragonstone. Jorah is cured and goes skin-to-skin with Sam. There’s just so much of that good good going on in this episode, there’s “no fat” (to quote Cord). We’ve only got a total of 10 episodes until the series is over, which include only 4 more this season! Are you ready for the end just yet?

Episode 2 of Season 7 Game of Thrones was just as enthralling, if not more, than the first. There are intriguing plotlines to follow (Little Finger, an emboldened Daenerys, Arya finding out about Jon Snow, Jorrah, etc.) and they’re coming at you full-steam. There doesn’t seem to be a long game in this season’s Game of Thrones, and that’s a good thing, because Winter is here!

This episode, we’re joined by Cord, who makes a triumphant return, but not yet having watched Episode 2. Stay tuned to the end of the podcast though where we guess what’s going to happen to particular characters in the show. We’re gonna do that all season long, so by the end, we may cover every character in the show a fraction of the characters! Hope everyone’s having a great week, and we look forward to next week’s episode, “The Queen’s Justice”. (Is it Cersei? Sansa? Daenerys? Stay tuned!).
