For those of you who haven’t watched the Game of Thrones Season 7 finale, beware, spoilers are ahead. The Great War—that is, the one between the dead and the living—has finally landed on the North’s doorstep. And, let’s be real, things aren’t looking good for the living.
After the insane near-suicide mission by Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and his band of misfits “Beyond the Wall” to capture an undead White Walker to bring back to King’s Landing, Daenerys is left with one less dragon and plenty more to lose as she and her crew of allies and advisers make the risky visit to the capital for a meeting with Queen Cersei (Lena Headey).
Needless to say, it doesn’t go very well. And, despite the fact that many family members are reunited at the Dragonpit summit, there’s still a lot of bad blood. And, after coming face-to-face (we’re talking inches) with a White Walker, Cersei finally realizes the northern threat isn’t just a silly joke. But, Cersei being Cersei, that doesn’t necessarily mean she’s going to help.
Of course, the Dragonpit summit wasn’t the only intense, adrenaline-inducing part of the epic, 80-minute episode, titled the “Dragon and the Wolf”. Here are five of the most jaw-dropping moments from the Game of Thrones Season 7 finale.
