Twists, turns and intrigue abounded in Sunday’s "Game of Thrones" episode "Eastwatch."
We got a low-key massive reveal that you’d miss if you blinked, the return of a fan favorite thought lost to the ages and a pretty sweet Reservoir Dogs-walkout to cap it off.
But throughout the episode we saw a number of reunions on happy, sad and angry terms. Let’s dive in.
Jaime and Cersei: If last episode’s ending felt like a cliffhanger, that cliff was roughly three feet tall, as we open with the instant reveal that Jaime did not drown in a river after being nearly incinerated in Drogon’s Westerosi debut.
Jaime is none too pleased about the situation, telling Lannister employee of the month Bronn that he nearly killed him. In more colorful language than is fit to print here, Bronn reminds Jaime that he was headlong into a tilt with a freaking dragon when Bronn, y’know, saved his life. So, dragons are scary, it turns out, but not as scary as telling Cersei that they have no chance in this war. On the other side of the river, Tyrion takes a tour of Pompeii and looks forlorn.
Jaime returns to King’s Landing, where he doesn’t even pause to take a shower before delivering the bad news to Cersei that dragons are, indeed, scary.
Wanna touch my dragon?
Jon and Daenerys: Meanwhile at Dragonstone, Jon’s daily cliffside brooding session is interrupted when Dany touches down atop Drogon, current Targaryen employee of the month. The injury report looks good for Drogon, as the dragon looks perfectly fine after an early morning team building exercise of roasting a few Tarlys. (Dickon, we hardly knew thee).
Drogon seems to smell some Targaryen on the King in the North, and Jon seizes on the opportunity to show Dany that he is well aware that winning over the children of a single mother is a giant step toward winning said mother’s heart. But Dany still wants a little clarification on the whole fire god Jesus thing that was kind of smoothed over when they first met. Jon is stammering when, bam, in walks ole Greyscale himself.
?Jorah and Daenerys: Jorah’s in on the latest "black is the new black" fashion trend. Dany gives him a big hug, and everyone at home is like, "Hold up, that guy literally had stone ebola last time you saw him."
Bran and ravens: In Winterfell, Bran plugs into the matrix and plays "Flight Simulator" with a bunch of ravens. The black birds loft above the northern wastelands, monitoring the never-ending cold front, when out of nowhere it’s the army of the dead. Bran gets a good enough look before the Night King scrambles his radar.
