Warning: Contains spoilers for Game Of Thrones season seven.
Are we allowed to breathe yet? This week’s episode turned into a surprise budget splurge packing humour, dragon warfare and one hell of a cliffhanger.
It seems season seven isn’t planning to slow down anytime soon, with The Spoils Of War managing to tightly pack huge scale battles and warming reunions within the shortest episode the show’s ever seen.
So where do we go from here? Will Podrick ever catch a break? Is it next week yet? Here’s all the questions we have following The Spoils Of War.
Is Jaime dead? Who saved him? Is there any budget left?
Alright, slow down. Jaime Lannister had everyone clutching their childhood favourites as he swooped in for the kill on Daenerys only to be faced by a dragon’s fiery noggin, before being pushed off his horse, away from the fire and into the waters below.
While we’re all for cliffhanger dramatics, we’d be incredibly surprised if Jaime is discovered dead in the next episode. Especially considering we haven’t seen the identity of his saviour who also fell in the water (Bronn or Dickon?), who will most likely be the one pulling him to safety.
Jaime also has a lot more to give this season following Olenna Tyrell’s admission of Joffrey’s killer before her death, and we’re sure that secret won’t be buried in the waters.
Is Tyrion Lannister having a change of heart?
As Daenerys went on the offensive and scorched the Lannister soldiers to a crisp, Tyrion looked slightly mortified watching his house being brutally murdered.
Considering his battle plans have so far failed Daenerys, who called out his bad strategies with ferocity, could these events sway Tyrion away from the Mother Of Dragons’ side?
It’d certainly make Jaime’s discovery of Joffrey’s true killer interesting, and with Jaime’s concerns over his sister rising, could they potentially assert Lannister authority as a joint pair over Euron Greyjoy and Cersei if they were to reunite?
What’s Littlefinger thinking about while creepily staring at the Starks?
Bran, Arya and Sansa have now all reunited at Winterfell under the Stark banners, with the trio slowly discovering what each has been up to since their split many seasons ago.
Littlefinger however has seemingly been getting a measure of the united trio like a lurking panther, giving Bran the catspaw Valyrian dagger which was used to try assassinate him in season one, and also observing Arya’s incredible new sword skills while playfully fighting Brienne.
