Stormborn was written by Bryan Cogman and directed by Mark Mylod.
At Dragonstone, the Queen’s council starts planning the invasion of Westeros. Daenerys sends the dornishmen along the Greyjoy fleet to Sunspear, the Unsullied to Casterly Rock and decides to not move on to King’s Landing yet, intending to install a siege instead. There, Cersei has gathered many lords and insisted on fear for the Dragon Queen and why they should support the Lannister crown instead, promising Randyll Tarly the title of Warden of the South. In the Riverlands, Arya meets with Hot Pie, who tells her of Jon being named King in the North. She decides to return to Winterfell, and in the way she is briefly reunited with her long lost direwolf pet: Nymeria. At Winterfell, Jon Snow leaves for Dragonstone in hopes of getting support of Daenerys Targaryen against the threat of the White Walkers, leaving Sansa in charge. At the Citadel, Sam begins a forbidden treatment for Jorah Mormont’s Greyscale. Finally, Euron Greyjoy’s Iron Fleet attacks Yara Greyjoy’s, and in the battle, Obara and Nymeria Sand are killed, while Ellaria, Tyene and Yara are captured. Theon Greyjoy flees the carnage in horror.
Like I said, with only seven episodes this season, we ain’t getting too many filler episodes and this episode definitely picks up the pace in a gigantic way, this episode had everything, a pretty steamy sex scene between Grey Worm and Missandei to Melisandre joining up with Daernys to Sam providing a pretty gruesome way to fix Jorah’s Greyscale to Arya reuniting with a bigger version of her direwolf to an intense action sequence in which two of the Sand sisters are killed, thank god because my god, they were so annoying, and Theon just can’t catch a break in this series.
They pretty much throw everything but the kitchen sink at you in this episode and it ain’t slowing down anytime soon as next week’s teaser pretty much teased a meeting of Cersei and Daenerys and a gigantic war.
As I said, say bye to numerous filler episodes, shit is literally about to break down over the next five weeks.
