Game of Thrones Season 7: The Dragon & The Wolf (Short Review)
Nine noble families fight for control over the mythical lands of Westeros, while a forgotten race returns after being dormant for thousands of years.
Review (Spoilers Ahead)
The game of Thrones season 7 packed in with some countless drama, romance, thriller, action, and war (everything you could ask for from a TV show) and finally as a viewer, I can connect all the dots which were misplaced from the former seasons. Kudos to George R.R. Martin for writing such a brilliant book and creators David Benioff, D.B. Weiss for translating fantasy into reality.
Just what we expected, the characters in the show are getting serious with vitality and emotions which helps you relate to each character and how much they are tangled in it. Where, at one side, Jon Snow seeks aid from Khaleesi to fuel his battle at the north, pursues truce from Lannister’s until they are through with White Walkers, on the other hand, white Stalkers are only growing stronger. The Night King’s forces that do not need to sleep or eat, marching towards the North at a progressive speed is going fiercer with every quarrel and scuffle.
Every character seems to have a history with every other character, once Euron stomps off after seeing just how threatening a zombie can be. Brienne and Jaime Lannister have a brief reunion. Tyrion, Pod, and Bronn come back together for a reminder of the old times. Daenerys and Cersei have their first face-to-face meeting. The Hound gets to talk to Brienne about how she nearly executed him and how Arya is still alive and more than capable of taking care of herself. Tyrion, unsurprisingly, makes the point of the night: all they have between one another is death and suffering and loss, and if they wanted more of the same, they wouldn’t be holding a meeting to try and turn their communal consideration towards the real threat to the Seven Kingdoms.
Talk about Lena Headey, throughout episode 7, when Cercei is on screen, Lena Headey is in total control. Like when she encounters with the dragon for the first time or when the zombie comes charging out of the box, she did not flinch for a second just to show sturdy and heartless of a character she is.
Game of Thrones, the seventh installment in the franchise accomplished not to disappoint the fans with what they wanted to see but spoiled the reputation with fewer and shorter episodes. The finale of game of thrones was 80% debate and discussions and 20% action which in my opinion, certainly helped many questions left responded, developing with each episode. Now, what I can say by the aspect of it, Season 8 is going to be epic as White walkers have finally wrecked the wall of the north and bringing the fight to them with dragons up their sleeves. It is, indeed, going to be one epic battle the viewers will witness.
