Trivia

Cersei has chosen to omit the title "Lord of the Seven Kingdoms" from her queenly title. She would technically be the "Lady of the Realm", but there is no indication why it would have been left off completely. See more »

Goofs

Jaime says that the ironborn broke their promises and murdered their former friends (namely the Starks) as soon as it suited them. This is incorrect, since the ironborn have never promised anything and never formed any alliance with the Starks. See more »

Quotes

Sansa Stark: They respect you, they really do, but you have to...
[Jon laughs]
Sansa Stark: Why are you laughing?
Jon Snow: What did father use to say? Everything before the word 'but' is horseshit.

Not what it's hyped up to be . . .
17 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

I love "Game of Thrones", both the novels and HBO's series, and I have read and watched both five and seven times respectively in their entirety, with my most recent plunges during the past fortnight (and no, I have nothing better to do with my life as am terminally ill and bed bound). So one can easily imagine my level of anticipation for the broadcast of "Dragonstone", And that first seven at the Twins made the past year and a half of waiting and wondering seem worth those stainless days. Arya's artful extinction of House Grey was so perfectly crafted at such a high level of intensity that I knew it must be just the tip of the iceberg.

Unfortunately, it was the whole iceberg, for the rest of the episode sank beneath it and played like one very long preview for this irritatingly truncated season. We do see the Hound's humanity continue growing, but the episode largely consists of superfluous chin-wagging, and I include in that Sansa and Jon's public bickering, which did not appear to undermine their unity.

We received very little new information in S7E1, heard too much dialogue, and got precious little eye candy after so long a wait. Best bet back to killing off beloved characters--and a few deeply detested ones, too, GoT! And flying, fire-breathing dragons!!!
