Do you know what that is? In the very first episode of Game of Thrones, King Robert makes his grand entrance to Winterfell.
Wright got into this series that has taken him from age 10 to 18 because “I just wanted something to do at the weekends”.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actor didn’t want to spill the beans on his character’s ultimate fate, but said the script direction for the episode said: “One of our main characters is about to die …”
Stoneheart also plays a crucial role in Brienne and Podrick’s storyline. Watch around the 1:14 mark in the scene where Arya’s chatting with Brienne at Winterfell, and pay attention to the person who walks by in the background as Arya says the word “mother”.
Going back to the notion that the old Bran isn’t 100% gone, Wright made it clear that Bran knew what he was doing when he freaked out Petyr Baelish by parroting his catch phrase – “Chaos is a ladder” – back to him. It was already poised to be one of the show’s great battle moments, but once Drogon flew over the horizon, with Daenerys on her back, it became the singular moment viewers had been anticipating after six-and-a-half years. The George R.R. Martin-penned novels describe Lady Catelyn has having been thrown into a river after her death, later resurrected by Baric Dondarrion (Richard Dormer), who gives her the last kiss of R’hllor, the Lord of Light, and sacrifices his life for hers.
The Dragonstone scenes in this episode really set up the relationship between Jon and Danny, there is a clear chemistry between the two characters, and while Danny is still adamant that Jon kneels both characters are clearly attracted to the other.
Because of the odd glance exchanged between Sansa and her incessant, murderous suitor, some fans have theorized that she will ultimately kill him as penance for the way he has manipulated her and demolished her once happy family.
Danny burns the Lannister army to ashes, Drogon gets hit with a Scorpion bolt but he quickly recovers and Jamie tries to kill Danny but almost gets toasted by Drogon, luckily Bronn saves him just in time. (Season seven update: check!) We also know that The Hound is roaming the Riverlands, and he and Arya have history – remember that time when she left him for dead in the middle of the wilderness?
Needless to say, there were some massive reactions.
