Game of Thrones Season 7 Recap: 'The Queen's Justice'

July 31, 2017 1 min read

George RR Martin's sprawling "seven" book fantasy series has long been known as A Song of Fire and Ice and tonight's episode played homage by finally 'bringing fire and ice together' and acknowledging as much through dialogue by red priestess Melisandre. Of course, she's referring to the convergence of central players Jon Snow, bastard, and King in the North, and Daenerys Targaryen, mother of dragons, the unburnt, breaker of chains, storm born, Khaleesi, and more titles than you or Jon Snow expected to hear. Hence the perplexed face (above). There's a dichotomy here, that plays out throughout the episode, that between fire and ice, represented by Daenerys and Jon, and their expectations of one another and how those should play out. It's central to the episode, and there series plot lines, and despite feeling rushed (we go from Jon, at the Wall, saying he will go, to Jon being there in the span of minutes) is effective and satisfying.

[Editor's Note: This recap will obviously go into detail about last night's episode of Game of Thrones, so there are going to be a ton of spoilers. Final warning! ~ Nick, copied and pasted by Rick]
