The first episode of the new season of Game of Thrones airs tonight and we can’t be any less excited about it. While what comes next will be revealed today, of course, starting off with the reunions of some of our favourite characters, a quick recap is something we need hours ahead of the premiere.
We can visualise Westeros burning blue with Night King’s new mount Viserion this season along with a number of theories and some wishful thinking like the much-hyped Cleganebowl, and much more. The last season did leave us with some clues for the end-game in Season 8. Here’s a quick recap of the Seventh Season, explained in the gifs that we had created for each episode:
#Episode 1: Dragonstone
The first episode of Season 7 begins with the eventual fate of House Frey by Arya Stark, who wipes out its existence from the map of Westeros. Bran crosses the Wall with Meera Reed to get back home. In the North, Jon Snow as the King in the North, prepares the defences, asking all to play a part in the Great War. He decides to forgive the Karstarks and the Umbers even when they had betrayed the Starks, not taking into account Sansa’s advice.
Cersei takes a walk on the newly painted map of Westeros, discussing the future of their House with Jaime. Euron Greyjoy becomes her newest ally promising her a valuable gift. Samwell Tarly is under training at Old Town – on his journey of being a Maester. Lastly, we see a brief encounter between him and Ser Jorah Mormont, while Daenerys Targaryen makes her way back home – landing at Dragonstone.
#Episode 2: Stormborn
The second episode of Season 7 begins with a confrontation between Varys and Daenerys – who judges his loyalty. Melisandre arrives at Dragonstone, asking Dany to summon Jon Snow. Jon receives two letters – one from Dany and the other from Samwell Tarly. Based on Sam’s confirmation of Dragonglass on Dragonstone, Jon decides to go and meet the Dragon Queen, while facing a revolt from the Northerners. Sam tries to heal Jorah’s Greyscale – a gross scene.
Arya Stark upon hearing that Jon is King in the North decides to head back to Winterfell, only to meet with her long-lost direwolf Nymeria. Cersei in King’s Landing tries to persuade her bannermen to support her instead of the Mad King’ daughter. Dany holds a meeting, where her allies Ellaria Sand, Yara Greyjoy, and Queen Ollena give a nod to Tyrion Lannister’s plan of storming King’s Landing. Euron Greyjoy attacks Yara’s fleet which results in Yara and Ellaria along with Tyene Sand being captured. Theon being fearful, leaps down the ship.
#Episode 3: The Queen’s Justice
This episode begins with Jon arriving at Dragonstone to meet Dany, who is only concerned about the threat of the White Walkers and isn’t ready to bend the knee to a Targaryen. Dany learns that she has lost her two valuable allies Greyjoys and the Martells. Theon is rescued from the sea – who is mistreated by the Ironborn for failing to save Yara. Yara, Ellaria, and Tyene are paraded through King’s Landing to be presented as a gift to Cersei Lannister.
Cersei poisons Tyene Sand – an act of revenge against Ellaria and justice for her deceased daughter Mrycella. Bran arrives at Winterfell and reunites with Sansa – the acting Lady of Winterfell. Dany sends the Unsullied to capture Casterly Rock, while most of the Lannisters are absent. Lannisters and Tarlys attack Highgarden, plundering it to pay the debts of Iron Bank. Jaime confronts Olenna Tyrell, gives her poison to drink. Before dying, Olenna confesses to having poisoned Joffrey at the Purple Wedding.
#Episode 4: Spoils of War
Arya Stark arrives at Winterfell, reuniting with her siblings Sansa and Bran. Meera Reed leaves for her home. Jon and Dany discuss the legend of the last Long Night, based on ancient carvings in the cave of Dragonglass. Dany is filled with anger when she learns that they’ve lost Highgarden too. Theon Greyjoy arrives at Dragonstone to ask for Dany’s help, who at first is choked by Jon for betraying the Stark and then learns that Dany isn’t on Dragonstone.
Bronn and Jaime make their way to King’s Landing with the plundered gold and grains only to be ambushed by Dany and the Dothrakis. Many Lannisters are killed and Jaime attempts to end the Battle by killing Dany. He is about to be roasted by Drogon, while being saved by Bronn.
#Episode 5: Eastwatch
The episode begins with Dany demanding the survivors of the Battle to bend the knee while roasting Tarlys alive. Jaime and Bronn return to King’s Landing. Jon meets with Drogon for the first time. Much to Dany’s surprise, Drogon allows Jon to pet him.
Bran wargs into a bunch of ravens to Eastwatch only to learn that Night King is arriving soon. While Jon learns the same and demands to leave for Winterfell, Tyrion suggests him to present a wight to Cersei in order to get the support of King’s Landing in the great war.
Davos smuggles Tyrion to King’s Landing while meeting with Gendry in Flea Bottom. Gendry follows Davos to Dragonstone, while Jon and company head for Eastwatch by the Sea. Sam being bored of the monotony of the Citadel, leaves Old Town with Gilly and Baby Sam.
Littlefinger being aware of Arya spying on him unearths Sansa’s letter to Robb. Jon, Jorah, Gendry, and Davos reach Eastwatch by the Sea and unite with Tormund and Brotherhood Without Banners and head for their ‘wight-hunting’ expedition.
#Episode 6: Beyond the Wall
Jon and party travel North of the Wall and we see a few small talks between characters like Jon and Jorah, Tormund and Sandor Clegane, and Gendry with the Brotherhood until they are attacked by an undead Polar Bear. Thoros of Myr is severely injured, while they continue their mission. Arya plays the Game of Faces with Sansa, judging her loyalty to Jon. Daenerys has a discussion with Tyrion and gets furious when the subject of succession is brought about.
Jon and party encounter a couple of wights lead by a White Walker. Jon kills the Walker, and they try to capture a wight while being ambushed by a hundred thousand wights and the Night King. Gendry being the fastest of them, runs back to Eastwatch to send a raven to Dany, informing her of the ambush. Dany arrives in time to save them but loses Viserion who is killed by the Night King. Jon is left behind only to be rescued by Benjen Stark. Dany makes a promise to Jon to fight alongside him to avenge the death of her dragon. The Night King resurrects Viserion as a White Walker to be his mount.
#Episode 7: The Dragon and The Wolf
The ultimate episode of Season 7 begins with Jon and Daenerys presenting the captured wight to Cersei in order to get her support in the Great War. While initially, Cersei agrees to help, yet she is pissed when Jon says he can’t pledge his loyalty to her. Tyrion tries to persuade her, and she agrees to help after their small conversation. Sansa discovers Arya’s faces while she continues the Game of Faces. Littlefinger tries to take advantage of the chaos, turning the sisters against each other. Jon and Dany plan for their Journey to Winterfell, while Theon asks permission to try rescuing his sister. Theon Greyjoy indulges in a fight while gaining the respect of the Ironborn, while Littlefinger is executed by Arya.
Cersei reveals her plan to Jaime of betraying Jon and Dany, while a disgusted Jaime abandons her to honour his pledge. Sam arrives at Winterfell while discovering with Bran that Jon is a legitimate Targaryen named Aegon and that Robert’s rebellion was built on a lie. Jon and Daenerys on their way to Winterfell make love, while Tyrion gives a concerned look. Sansa and Arya reconcile, while Bran wargs and flies a flock of ravens to Eastwatch. Night King mounted on Viserion melts a portion of the Wall at Eastwatch by the Sea. The Army of The Dead breaches the Wall, while Tormund and Beric barely escape.
Season 8 premieres tonight and you can watch it on HBO in usa and if you live in India, you can watch Game Of Thrones online on Hotstar!
Richard Madden and Kit Harington hit the red carpet at Marvel’s Eternals World Premiere
Game of Thrones stars are no strangers to being in the limelight, but two of the most notable members of the cast have moved on to one of the very few franchises in the world that are bigger than Thrones — the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Kit Harington and Richard Madden recently hit the red carpet at Eternals World Premiere, Marvel Cinematic Universe’s latest film to grace the big screen.
Harington, 34, and Madden, 35, rose to fame after playing half brothers Jon Snow and Robb Stark, respectively, on HBO’s epic fantasy Game of Thrones. They will be reuniting after almost a decade on screen on Marvel’s upcoming movie Eternals, starring as fan favourite superheroes from The Eternals comic book series.
Madden has been tapped in to play Ikaris, a hero from an ancient race of beings descended from celestials. While Harington will play Dane Whitman, aka The Black Knight, a human who gains superpowers after gaining access to a mystical sword.
Harington hit the red carpet with a brown shirt under a pinstriped suit coat, with the sleeves rolled up to his elbows. He also wore matching black pinstriped pants with a black leather watch strapped to his left wrist.
His co-star Madden opted for a more formal look with a black tuxedo coat over a white dress shirt and black bowtie. The actor sported the early scruff of a growing beard on the red carpet, though it was not as full as his co-star. He completed his look with black tuxedo pants and shiny black shoes for the world premiere red carpet event.

George R. R. Martin loved the House of The Dragon’s teaser trailer
House of The Dragon’s first teaser trailer is finally here! The teaser was released by HBO at the end of the HBO Max European launch event and it features a voiceover by Matt Smith who plays the role of Prince Daemon Targaryen. It broke the internet as soon as it was released, and fans are going crazy over the accuracy and detail shown in the teaser. It was watched by over 10 million viewers in less than three days of its launch! And George R. R. Martin has something to say about the teaser trailer.
Martin wrote on his blog Not a Blog:
“Yes, I know, most of you have already seen this. (What can I say? I am busy. Juggling so many balls, so many projects, posting stuff on my Not A Blog is not my highest priority, so things may always be a little bit behind here).
For the handful who have been off the internet the past few days, however… HBO has released the first official teaser/trailer for HOUSE OF THE DRAGON. Here ’tis.
(And yes, I love it too. Ryan and Miguel and their team are kicking ass and taking names).”
Looking at the current speed of production, we can hope Martin’s earlier prediction about the prequel’s release will come to fruition. What do you think about House of The Dragon? Talk to us in the comments below!
A young Alicent Hightower takes over the Iron Throne in Leicester Square
The filming for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is progressing really smoothly, besides minor delays everything’s looking good for HBO’s high priority project. HBO recently dropped the first official teaser trailer for House of The Dragon, and fans are going crazy about it. That being said, we know that filming for the prequel show will be starting in Spain the next week, and the cast and crew members are gathering up at the Castle of La Calahorra.
The actors are taking a small break from their busy schedule before the shoot resumes, and it seems Emily Carey, who will be playing a young Alicent Hightower in the show is having fun with a replica of the Iron Throne.
— Emily Carey (@TheEmilyCarey) October 8, 2021
Carey recently posted a picture on her official Twitter account. She seems to be enjoying a quiet day at Leicester Square, and her preferred choice of furniture is the Iron Throne replica. She wrote in the caption, “Found this chair in Leicester Square (wearing green was coincidental).” #HOTD #HouseofTheDragon #AlicentHightower
Do you think the future Queen of Westeros was foreshadowing a scene from House of The Dragon? Wearing green was coincidental? Maybe, maybe not. Only time will tell.
