The 5 Most Dramatic Moments of the Game of Thrones Season 7 Finale
We literally cannot stop talking about it
Game of Thrones is hands down one of the most popular series of our generation. It got us hooked from the first few episodes and we now collectively anticipate each release. And even with Season 7 freshly behind us, there is so much to talk about.
Some serious spoilers coming your way.
It seemed almost impossible that we would ever see Daenerys, Jon and Cersei speaking to each other in one room, but leave it to Game of Thrones to surprise us yet again. The three spoke about working together to fight off the Whitewalkers. Things seemed to be going well until Cersei demanded that Jon stay neutral in the war that would follow between herself and Dany.
Jon, of course, disagreed and confirmed that he had pledged his allegiance to the Mother of Dragons, which had Cersei retracting the truce.
But then Tyrion visited Cersei in an amazing scene that had the siblings opening up old wounds. In the end—for reasons we do not yet understand—Tyrion convinced Cersei to go to war with Jon and Dany.
Arya slays Littlefinger
The Stark sisters finally working together was a beautiful scene to watch—as was the scene of Littlefinger’s death.
His arrogance finally caught up with him in the Great Hall when he thought that Arya would have to defend her acts of betrayal and murder. But when Sansa instead asked Littlefinger to answer for all of his crimes, we all cried out in victory. And when Arya slashed his throat, it brought out the sadist in all of us.
Jon Snow + Daenerys Targaryen
Yes, it happened. Jon and Daenerys final consummated their affection for each other in a scene that left our hearts happy and satisfied—in an odd way, of course.
It was one of the most popular theories this season, but now it’s certain that Jon Snow is the rightful heir to the Iron Throne. Bran’s revelation confirmed that Jon is the son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen. What’s more, the two were in love and secretly wed each other, meaning Jon’s birth was completely legitimate.
Destruction of The Wall
We didn’t want it to happen so quickly and we definitely thought it would take a little more effort, but the Night King rode on his Whitewalker dragon and demolished The Wall like it was a piece of paper and he was holding a match. We may not know what’s coming up, but we do know it’s going to big, bloody and absolutely epic.
You were probably left hanging as much as we were, but we have no option now but to wait. Logic would say that Season 8 will premiere in 2018, but given the length of the upcoming episodes (each of them being feature-length!), it could mean we’re waiting till 2019.
Now, how to get rid of these Game of Thrones withdrawal symptoms?
