Here we are at the seventh and penultimate season of GOT. I;m not going to waste time talking about an intro here. Let the episodes speak for themselves!
Episode 1 : Dragonstone
Arya continues on her journey to kill all the Freys, while disguising as Walder Frey as she now has the ability to change faces like the members of the House of Black and White.
At Winterfell, despite Sansa’s disapporval Jon pardons and accepts the allegiances of two northern houses who fought alongside Ramsay.
Bran and Meera are let through the wall.
At the Citadel, where Sam is learning to become a maester, he discovers a restricted book that tells him the Dragonstone has a large reservoir of Dragonglass and sends word of it to Jon. He also finds Jorah who is on quarantine in a cell, trying to cure himself off his greyscale.
Thoros shows Sandor a vision in the flames and a revelation leads Sandor to believe in the Lord of The Light.
Jamie tells Cersei that they must get allies if they are to win the war. Euron comes with an alliance and a marriage proposal to Cersei to which she doesn’t accept. Euron then tells her that he will return with a gift that will help him gain her trust and her alliance.
Dany arrives at Dragonstone, the home that was of the Targaryens, previously occupied by Stannis Baratheon.
Episode 2 : Stormborn
Dany sends a fleet to Casterly Rock, to start her siege on Westeros. She has some doubts regarding Varys and threatens to kill him if he is cheating her. Missandei informs Dany of Jon’s request to see her, and convinces her. Meanwhile Missandei and Grey Worm consummate their relationship.
Cersei gathers several lords to get their alliance and Qyburn shows her a new weapon he designed. One that is capable of killing dragons.
Arya meets Hot Pie and finds that Jon is now the King in the North. She stops her plans to go to King’s Landing, and sets her route to Winterfell. Meanwhile , Jon has gone to Dragonstone so that he can get permission to mine the dragonglass leaving Sansa in charge. Sansa tells Baelish, to keep her distance.
Sam performs a forbidden (and rather painful) treatment to treat Jorah of his grayscale.
Euron’s fleet attack and Yara is captured. Theon gets flashbacks as Reek and gets scared and jumps off the ship and escapes.
Episode 3 : The Queen’s Justice
Jon arrives at Dragonstone after which Dany asks him to declare his fealty. He refuses and merely asks permission to mine the dragonglass, to which she agrees to after Tyrion suggested the same. Melisandre avoids Jon and travels to Volantis.
Bran now return to Winterfell with Meera and informs Sansa that he is now, the three-eyed raven.
In King’s Landing, Euron returns with Ellaria and Tyene as a gift for Cersei. She agrees to marry him and gives him co-control of the military forces along with Jamie. She then poison’s Ellaria’s daughter just like how Myrcella was poisoned and leaves Ellaria to watch her daughter die, in front of her.
In the Citadel, Jorah, now cured leaves to go back to Dany,
Grey worm and the Unsullied attack Casterly Rock, but find it to be mostly empty. Jamie had let the Lannister forces to High Garden as an attack the Tyrells. The Unsullied’s ships are destroyed by Euron and his forces. The Lannister forces overwhelm Olenna’s army and Jamie is a rather dramatic and favorite scene of mine, offers Olenna poison for a painless death. She consumes it, and confesses to have killed Joffrey. (She died with style, Olenna!)
Episode 4 : The Spoils of War
Arya returns to Winterfell where she reunites with Sansa. She has a friendly fight with Brienne and both Sansa and Brienne are nervous after seeing her exceptional fighting skills. Meera leaves to go back home, leaving Bran in Winterfell. Baelish shows Bran the dagger that was used in his assassination in the first season.
Cersei assures the Iron Bank a full repayment of loans, as a wagon carrying gold from Highgarden travels to King’s Landing.
While mining for the Dragonglass, Jon discovers ancient drawings on the walls, of the First Men and the Children of the Forest uniting to fight against the Undead.
Dany then finds out about the attack on Casterly Rock and against Tyrion’s advice rides Drogon and attacks the wagon of gold along with the Dothraki. Drogon is wounded when the new weapon is used on him, but Dany manages to land safely. Jamies is nearly killed from dragonfire but he is saved by Bronn as they fall into the lake.
Episode 5 : Eastwatch
Jamie and Bronn return to King’s Landing. Dany captures the remaining Lannister forces and asks them their fealty or die. Against Tyrion’s wishes she burns the ones who deny alive. Jorah arrives at Dragonstone and reunites with Dany. Jon is alerted that the whitewalkers are nearing Eastwatch. Jon then decides to go beyond the wall and capture wight to arrange a temporary alliance with Cersei to collectively fight against the Whitewalkers.
Tyrion secretly reaches Cersei and agrees on a deal, and it is revealed that Cersei is now pregnant.
Gendry returns from his rendezvous where Davos had left him in the earlier seasons.
Sam realizing that the Citadel is ignoring the warnings of the Wights, steals a few books and leaves with Gilly and Little Sam.
At Winterfell, Littlefinger who knows Arya is spying on him, leads her to a letter written by Sansa.
Jon, Jorah, Gendry, The Hound, The Brotherhood and a group of free folk led by Tormund decide to go beyond the wall to capture a wight.
Episode 6 : Beyond The Wall
At Winterfell, Baelish plots to isolate Sansa. Arya is led to discover a letter written by Sansa declaring Robb’s fealty towards Joffrey. Sansa also discovers the bag of faces that Arya had brought with her from Braavos.
Jon and group travel and successfully capture a wight but is attacked by the whitewalker army. They request Dany for help, for which she comes with her dragons. But Dany is unable to save Jon. Benjen then appears and sacrifices himself to save Jon. But at that time, the Night King aims a spear at Viserion killing the dragon. (One of the worst deaths in GOT if you ask me).
Later that night Jon pledges his and the North’s allegiance to Dany,.
Meanwhile the Night King reanimates Viserion as an ice dragon which is now part of their army.
Episode 7 : The Dragon and The Wolf
At King’s Landing a Wight is presented to the Lannister’s. Cersei demands neutrality in the war from Jon, but he disagrees as he has his allegiance towards Dany and plans to honour it. Cersei leaves, and Tyrion secretly forces her to ally. Later Cersei reveals to Jamie that during this time, she will use the Golden Company of Braavos to take control of Westeros. Jamie, angry and disgusted, leaves King’s Landing.
Bound for white harbour Jon and Dany make love. (Not knowing that they are actually aunt and nephew, since Rhaeghar was Dany’s brother, although this kind of relationship between the Targaryens was considered normal, as that would keep the blood line, pure)
Theon earns the respect of his people and decide to rescue Yara.
Littlefinger tries to have Arya and Sansa go against each other, but finally he is tries for killing Jon Arryn, for lying that it was the Lannister’s who did it, for helping the Lannister’s capture and kill Ned Stark, for killing her aunt Lysa, and everything. Bran recounts every single incident against Baelish. He is sentenced to death by Sansa, after which Arya kills him.
Sam and Bran meet up at Winterfell, and through his visions and in the records of the books at The Citadel, they found that Lyanna was never kidnapped and raped by Rhaeghar. Rather they were in love, and they marries in secret and had Jon. This shows that Robert’s rebellion was based on a lie. The killing of all those Targaryens and Rhaeghar was all for a lie. Jon is the true heir to the Iron Throne.
At the end we see the army of the dead has reached Eastwatch and now undead ice dragon Viserion,which the Night King rides, destroys a part of the wall, and lets the army of the dead through.
