The Battle of Winterfell. The final clash between the living and the dead. An epic climax to the tension that has been building North of the Wall since Game of Thrones’ inception. Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, and the rest of our heroes finally face off with the Night King and his army of the dead in a fierce and bloody battle for Winterfell and the Seven Kingdoms. And in true Game of Thrones fashion, this episode was wrought with twists and turns, surprises and, of course, the gruesome deaths of some of our beloved characters.
Last week we said goodbye to Ser Jorah Mormont, who defended his Khalessi until his last breath, practically the entire Dothraki horde, Lyanna Mormont, who lived up to her fierce reputation and took an undead giant down with her, and lastly Theon Greyjoy, who died valiantly defending Bran from the Night King himself.
With only three episodes left in the series, how could Game of Thrones top this? Well they certainly did their best. In the latest episode The Last of the Starks, our heroes emerged triumphant from the Battle of Winterfell, only to walk straight into the clutches of the Iron Fleet who devastated what remained of Dany’s army, slaying her Dragon, Rhaegal, and taking Missandei captive! Both Cersei, the Queen of the 7 Kingdoms, and Daenerys Targaryen, the Mother of Dragons, demand the other to surrender at the gates of Kings Landing. Cersei appears to have the upper hand as she surrounds herself with a shield of her own subjects and uses Missandei as leverage. And just when you think that Tyrion will swoop in and save the day with his clever wordplay, Cersei beheads her captive in a tense and heart-breaking moment.
Daenerys has lost almost everyone she loves and true Targaryen rage and fury is written plainly across her face – the true battle for the Iron Throne has begun.
