Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 3 Review
This is the world of Game of Thrones and anything can happen here.

Good is bad; bad is good. Right is wrong; wrong is malicious.

Gameof Thrones Season 7 Episode 3 just proves us that we can’t really pick a side. While Dany has been facing some major let down, Mad Queen Cersei has everything pretty much under her control.

With the tag team of Jaime and Euron, Cersei seems to be undefeatable, right at this moment at least. But let’s not get ahead of us. We still have 4 more episodes to go and hopefully, the sun will shine for Daenerys and co.
So now let us take a look at the Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 3 review. And if you are not a fan of spoilers, well, you have been warned.


When Fire and Ice finally met

After almost 6 seasons (for series fans) and years (for book maniacs) of waiting, Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow finally met. But what was supposed to be a great face-off, soon turned out be a snooze fest.

Both are stubborn and too engrossed with their own causes to actually look past the real threat. Jon is right in his pleadings but Mr Snow should really get his communications skill high.

As advisers, Ser Davos and Tyrion should have had a conversation. They would have come to a better conclusion. But Tyrion did help Jon procure some Dragon glass. Now that is a win!

So we really don’t know who won or who lost after the first meeting, Melisandre’s efforts of bringing “Fire and Ice” together did come true. Let’s hope for something better now!

The Poetic Justice

Game of Thrones is known for giving the not-so-subtle farewells to the characters (remember when a new born was fed to the hounds and a pregnant woman was stabbed to death?).  But this season, it has all come down to giving what exactly people deserve. (A murder is still a murder).

Ellaria Sand and her daughter Tyene were captured by Euron Greyjoy in the last episode. Cersei locks them in the basement, gives them a monologue which kind of justifies her designation as Mad Queen and gives Tyene the ‘kiss’ that was long impending. 

And the worst part, she locked them up, so now Ellaria is going to witness her daughter die. Subtle, elegant and mad.  

A winner who won for losing

And in Highgarden, Jaime alongside Lord Turly attacks and seizes the city. In what can be called a military excellence, he defeats the Tyrell army and goes to meet Lady Olenna. Now we know that the Lady of Thorn is a savage and spares no one. She knew the end was near, but it is her ferocious elegance that has all of us hooked. (Maybe I will do an article on her!)

Jaime gives her poison so that she can have a painless death. She gulps down the wine without any hesitation, but in her final moments, she reveals that she was the one who killed Joffrey. (And Jaime’s expression!).

“Tell Cersei, I want her to know it was me!” she tells Jaime before he storms out of the room. We know we are going to miss her. Oh, you Queen of Sass!

And elsewhere in Westeros  

Till now, Dany and Tyrion’s plan of attack has failed miserably. The Unsullied do capture Casterly Rock but it was only a trap laid by the Lannisters. And now that Euron has destroyed their fleet, good luck escaping Greyworm.

In Old Town, Jorah is cured, thanks to Samwell, whose reward is to copy a bunch of old manuscripts.

Bran finally returns to Winterfell and has an awkward reunion with Sansa (the expert in breast plate manufacturing). He tells her that he is the Three-Eyed Raven now and knows everything, and quickly reminiscent her wedding night with Joffrey. Sansa makes an excuse and leaves. *Poor Girl*

And there is that old creepo Littlefinger!

To Conclude

Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 3 was neither full of action because we saw no battle. The narrative point of view as given by Tyrion during the attack of Casterly Rock somewhat made the sequence chilling.

The background score, as usual, gave goose bumps and complimented the setting each scene. Though there was nothing spectacular in this episode, hopefully it is truly moving towards something massive, something spectacular.
