Game of thrones review season 3 episode 7- Many changes have happened in previous episodes of season 3 in Game of thrones and we see the results of some actions and pacts that were made.
Robb learns that his wife is with child and he is very happy now. Contrary to his happiness, Lord Edmure still whines about the decision for him to marry one of Walder Frey’s daughters.
Sansa complains to Margaery about her misfortune. She was a stupid girl with stupid dreams of coming to King’s Landing. She had many opportunities to flee but she missed them all. Now, she has to marry Tyrion and so her sorrow rises bigger.
Tyrion is not happy about the upcoming marriage either. He’s in love with Shae and he wants protection for her. He tells Shae it’s his duty to marry Sansa and tries to tell her to leave the city.
He will take care of her, giving her enough gold to have a happy life somewhere else. Shae doesn’t accept his offer. She is very disappointed and leaves the room.
Joffrey talks with his grandfather Tywin in the Throne room about Daenerys. He heard rumors about her and about her dragons. Tywin calms him down, telling Joffrey that she is not a serious threat, nor her dragons. The last living dragons and their masters were alive 300 year ago and the size of the dragons was insignificant.
Wrong! Daenerys is a far greater threat then everybody thinks. She has an army of 8000 Unsullied and three fast growing dragons. She arrived in Yunkai now with new demands.
Daenerys meets a master from the city, telling her demands of surrender of the masters and freeing the slaves. Feeling offended, the master leaves and threatens to destroy her and her army.
Daenerys wants to know who can help the masters defeat her. In order to find out, she tells Jorah and Barristan to find out who are these powerful friends that the masters have.
Melisandre travels with Gendry and they cross Blackwater. She tells Gendry who he really is, how highborn he is. Taking him back to King’s Landing, telling him the truth, she tries to earn his trust, presenting herself as a friend who can help.
Arya, on the other hand, manages to escape from the Brotherhood without Banners when they change plans for their trip. She is angry to learn the men will change the direction and go chasing Lannister men so that they can take the gold.
Arya goes in the woods and tries to run away but the Hound captures her. Isn’t this ironic? The last time she escaped was very soon recaptured by the Brotherhood. And now she’s been recaptured, this time by the Hound.
Unlike Arya, Theon is released by two girls who came into his chamber and they try to make love to him. Theon is suspicious at first but then he surrenders to his desire. At that very moment, Bolton’s bastard son Ramsey enters and continues torturing Theon. He mutilates Theon by cutting his most precious body part, his “tool”.
Ser Jaime tells Brienne that he will keep his promise and return the Stark girls to their mother. They tell their goodbyes and Jaime leaves for King’s Landing. He is released by Roose Bolton and now he travels together with Maester Qyburn who saved his arm.
The Maester tells Jaime about Brienne’s faith, the lie he told about the sapphires and the consequences. Jaime decides to go back for Brienne and save her.
When Jaime arrives at Harrenhal, he sees Brienne fighting a bear in an arena while everybody’s watching and cheering. Furious with this amusement, he enters the arena and helps Brienne. Before the bear can attack Jaime, his companion kills the bear so that Jaime is saved and could be returned to his family.
That was the deal, his safe returning in exchange for Bolton’s reward. Jaime again leaves Harrenhal, but this time he leaves with Brienne. This action shows us a new side of Jaime, he’s become a more likeable character in Game of thrones now. Could there be something more between them?
