The Queen of Dragons Meets The King of the North
The moment finally came where Jon Snow and Daenerys finally met. Danny expected Jon would come and bend the knee to the Queen and Jon came with the idea that all this Game of Thrones is all good and stuff but the real problem are these White Walkers. On their way to see the Queen Jon and Davos get their first encounter with Dragons and it was the best reactions to Dragons this show has had. So often people see Dragons for the first time and just look in awe, Jon and Davos hit the ground as quick as a hiccup. These Dragons have been the cheat code so far on the show, so it will be interesting to see how they can possibly die. Also, there is speculation that Jon will eventually ride one of these Dragons because of his heritage.
When Jon and Danny finally meet Messandei gives the long, distinguish speech about all the titles Danny has, Queen of Dragons, Khallesi, etc and created and immediate separation of power and title. Danny explains to Jon that the Targaryen’s and Starks have a long lasting agreement that the Starks would no longer be King of the north but Warden of the North and they will bend the knee to whatever King or Queen Targaryen that is in power. Davos, thought it was disrespectful to not call Jon a King and Jon did not bend the knee. Jon explains to Danny that her Dad was a madman, burned his grandfather alive and that act breaks this agreement, also he is not worried about the Game of Thrones he just needs help to stop the Army of the Dead. Danny clearly does not believe in the white walkers, but in a world with Dragons and fire magic she should no better. Tryion vouches for Jon telling Danny Jon is not a liar or and exaggerator and Jon would not have come all the way to Dragonstone against the will of his people if it were not serious. Eventually Danny and Jon come to a mutual agreement that Jon could mine the Dragon Glass and I assume Jon would support Danny but he still did not bend the knee to the Queen. I think this is setting up some type of confrontation down the road when Jon’s heritage is revealed and he may have claim to the throne. Also Danny decides to get on her Dragons and go destroy Euron’s ships on her own. Dany getting more and more behind the 8ball and Jon Snow will probably become an even bigger help to her.
Euron Greyjoy Might Be My New Favorite Character
After destroying Yara and her fleet Euron came back to Kings landing with a… Kings welcome. Euron has quickly become one of my favorite characters with his brash, eccentric and to some extent crazy personality and don’t give a fuck attitude. Euron dragged the sand snakes and Yara through town and presented them to Cersei. Cersei has not looked this pleased since she burnt the city to ashes. Cersei told Euron he could get whatever he wanted and Euron basically said he wanted to have sex with Cersei. Cersei tom y surprise told Euron, after the war was over he could have whatever he wants. Euron was so smug he went to Jaime to ask for sex tips on Cersei. Euron is building up the heat every week and soon he will be a character like Ramsey and Joffery who people can’t wait to see dead. Cersei settles her debt with the Iron Bank when the Lannister army give up casterly rock to take over High Garden and get their gold back. Cersei is still the Queen and winning the game and each week that goes by more and more the show is making it possible to have a antagonist win this game.
Queen of Thorn Goes Out Like a G
Once the Lanisters took over High Garden Jamie and Lady Ollena were in the room and they don’t call her the Queen of Thorns for nothing. Lady Ollena wen ton a monologue about how terrible Cersei is and that Jamie has to see that she is a plague to society and she will be the death of him soon. Jamie trying to hold a straight face, tries to justify what Cersei has done but Lady Ollena continues to point out how far Cersei is willing to go for power and that Jamie will not be able to stop her. Jamie then give her the poison to die peacefully and the Queen dropped the big joker that it was her who killed Joffery and Cersei’s crusade against Tryion was all a farce and she wanted to make sure Cersei new that and that it was one of the best decisions of Lady Ollenna’s life. Jamie is starting to feel everything cave in around him, and I assume soon enough he will turn on Cersei. Jamie is not a benevolent character, but he is not pure evil either. Jamie has a concience, we have seen it with Tyrion, Bron and Brienne and eventually as much as he love Cersei he will turn on her. The show is setting up Euron to be the catalyst of their eventual demise but I don’t see it going in that direction.
The Stark Reunion has Started
Back in Winterfell Sansa gets a visitor and its Bran. Sansa is in shock and did not beleive he was still alive but is learning this her brother is way different then the last time they met. Bran tries to explain to Sansa that he is the 3 eyed raven now, but Sansa does not get it, until Bran starts to describe her wedding day to Ramsey and it starts to freak her out a little. Meanwhile Littlefinger is trying to plant seeds with Sansa that she needs to establish herself as Queen even in Jon’s return and he is clearly up to something. I expect in the next couple episodes, Arya to make it back to Winterfell but knowing this show I would not be surprised if she get sidetracked or makes it but they never link up with Jon. The Starks are the Cleveland Browns of Game of Thrones and there is nothing to lead me to believe that they will succeed.
