Game of thrones season 7 episode 7 “The Dragon and the Wolf” (2017)



A fully operational Ice Dragon, Littlefinger bloodily hoisted on the sharp end of his own machinations, a hastily-undressed Jon and Daenerys rocking the boat…the longest Game Of Thrones episode yet was also among the most breathtaking and incident-packed. At the end of a spectacular yet uneven season, The Dragon and the Wolf was also a stirring return to Westeros first principles as the Hollywood bombast of recent weeks was replaced by a solid 80 minutes of betrayal, nudity and skulduggery in dimly-lit rooms. Not that it had ever truly been away but it was good to welcome the old, happy-stabby Game of Thrones back with a vengeful gleam in its eyes.



 

More than that, the series seven finale pushed past recent awkward plot points – Wight kidnaping and so forth – and saw the show reconnect with the grim majesty of George RR Martin’s original vision. The silliness with the purloined undead was quickly dispensed with while the early spectre of a backslapping session in King’s Landing as our favourite characters crossed paths proved a temporary distraction. This was a dark and slow-burning instalment, with heart-stopping imagery – blue-eyed Viserion blitzing the Wall, King’s Landing shivering beneath its first snowfall in decades – and genuinely wrenching interactions.

 

 

Indeed, it says something for the sweep and gut-punching power that the once-and-future bombshell regarding Jon’s parentage – he is obviously the child of the happily-betrothed Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark – was presented as an interesting nugget rather than continent-quaking pivot there was already quite enough quaking, what with the boat-cuddles and the Night King at the Wall.
