The mother of all episodes.
If you haven’t seen Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 6, proceed with caution as this post is dark and full of spoilers. The penultimate Game of Thrones Season 7 episode (titled Beyond the Wall) was an epic one… one which took the action beyond the wall as we followed Jon Snow and the rest of the “Magnificent 7” on their mission to abduct a wight.
Most of the episode plays off beyond the wall (hence the title) and led to some game-changing consequences, which may or may not have led to some ugly crying.
To prove the existence of White Walkers, Jon and his squad went North of the wall to capture a wight. While they seemingly went on with their business and for a moment’s worth it seemed as if they succeeded in their plans (unharmed), the whole thing quickly took an ugly turn and became a battle of survival.
At the end of the episode, it is our beloved Mother of Dragons, Daenerys who pays a heavy price. As she said herself, at least now she knows that the threat is in fact real and very dangerous.
In Winterfell, it seems things are also taking a turn into a very unfortunate direction – most probably thanks to Littlefinger and his never-ending ‘clever’ plans. Arya Stark and her sister, Sansa share an incriminating scene which leaves Sansa quite literally scared shitless of her little sister.
As she says to Littlefinger; “I don’t know her anymore.” If Sansa only knew the things Arya has done…
The HBO series draws to a close next weekend with a finale of 81 minutes. In the preview, we see major characters meet up at Dragonpit. It looks quite dramatic (judging by the look on everyone’s faces) and surely won’t be short of some epic surprises.
It’s going to be lit!
