Game Of Thrones review: “The Spoils of War”

Oh, Dragon where art thou?

There are two types of Armies in Westeros, those with Dragons and those without. both of which were on display in last nights, The Spoils of War. It’s one thing if you show up to a battle with Golden armor. If you show up riding a fire-breathing dragon named “Drogon,” that’s next level stunting.

Few things in the course of this show have been more thrilling and exuberant than the battle of The Spoils of War. However, equally important things happened away from the fight. As the spoils of war were not the only thing of value that changed hands this week. Which brings us to…

This Week in Westeros…

Do the Lannisters ever pay their debts? 

Cersei thinks she’s paying off the Iron Bank and thus begins to start talking about new investment opportunities. Did Jaime and the Tarley’s get the Gold through to the front? Will the Iron Bank get their funds? Or was the gold melted, just like the food, supplies, and the trembling Lannister army? Bronn received his gold and then proceeded to lose it and not to mention, still doesn’t have his castle.

Jaime tests his fate with a dragon in trying to bring a quick end to the war with a spear to Daenerys‘s back. He found out the hard way that you don’t bum-rush a Dragon at any point. If not for a well time jump from Bronn (protecting his debts), Jaime would be looking rather crispy right now.

Three Starks of Winterfell.

The last Stark returns to Winterfell, and while she lacked in the emotional fulfillment, she put on an exhibition. Not often have we gotten to see two equally matched fighters take one another on. Least of all between two beloved characters in Arya and Brienne. The duel was fast, intense, and Arya loved every moment of it.

She put on a show for Sansa and cemented her references page to lead the Queen’s guard.

“It’s been a while since I’ve trained.”

While in other news, Bran apparently can see everything, except who gave his assassin the valerian dagger. He claims that Bran Stark is essentially no more, but yet he seems only to have an interest in the history of his family. He’s aware of Arya’s where about’s in her time away from Winterfell and acutely knowledgeable of the horrors of Sansa’s wedding night. And yet, there appears to be a good deal of potent information he has yet to see(or is he playing a game).

Chaos is a ladder.”

This reunion is important not only for its significance to the coming war but that they children haven’t been together since early on of the first season. The characters have all grown (figuratively and Literally), but the warmth and home feeling they were all looking for is absent in this rendition of Winterfell.

Jon Snow may bend a knee in more ways than one. 

So Dany and Jon went on their first date on Sunday. It was a lovely afternoon in the exotic caves of Dragonstone and was along the lines of the ‘Bachelorette‘. Dany pledged her forces to Snow on the condition that he bend the knee. Will he go to Jared???? Show runners Davi
