Before viewers had a chance to recover from Sunday night's drama - or lack thereof - HBO released the trailer for next week's episode, which was sparse on details but showed that battle is on King's Landing's doorstep. On the way, the two were both captured by Bolton men, and Jaime helped save Brienne when their captors almost raped her, and later saved her once again when the Bolton soldiers force her to fight a bear for their amusement.
Cersei, meanwhile, has certainly done some inbreeding of her own, and has already shown some serious signs of going mad...like how she took advantage of Aerys' insane plan to blow everything up with wildfire to actually blow up the sept with wildfire.
Jon seems apprehensive to lie to his Stark family, and soon tells his sisters, Sansa and Arya. It should also be noted that the Greyjoys have been armed with a ton of Scorpions, which were not only used against the dragons, but Daenerys's small fleet.
"I'm not a lady, I never have been". Don't worry, we're not spoiling the specifics of this major turning point here, but if you want to be completely in the dark, this is your last chance. Weiss appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday and Kimmel's first question about what's coming up in the final season was: Are we for sure done with the white walkers? If it's a boy, they plan to name it Jon. He leaves despite Brienne asking for him to stay. When she arrived at King's Landing, she made a decision to issue a show of force with her dragons having them do a Top Gun style fly by of the city. Now that they've found out his true parentage and legitimate claim to the Iron Throne, the choice is even harder.
When news about the ambush gets back to Winterfell, Jamie is struck by a need to return.
Good luck keeping yourself together when the episode drops. He proceeds to list off the despicable things he's done over the years because of his love for Cersei, and rides off into the night. Missandei's final message to her queen and friends: "Dracarys".
While sad, it also serves as a reminder of just how many people were lost in the battle, especially as they look ahead at the next war. If you remember Tyrion had effectively repulsed Stannis Baratheon's attack on King's Landing.
