Jon Snow finally meets Daenerys

"Game of Thrones" Season 7 has seven episodes, and Season 8 - the final season - will follow with just six episodes.

Daenerys called Jon to Dragonstone to bend the knee, pledge his loyalty to her cause and give up his title of King of the North in favor of becoming Warden of the North. He was named King in the North, not because of his birthright. As some fans pointed out, this change of heart may have been due to the similarities between Jon and Rhaegar - who Dany never met but thinks highly of - that became apparent throughout the episode.

The difference is that Jon Connington, the character in the books, doesn't serve Daenerys - instead, he's trying to place Aegon Targaryen, Rhaegar's legitimate son, on the throne. Hence Jon Snow is the only remaining hope for the Mother of Dragons.

However, Olenna wasn't one to not get the last word in. And Cersei has taken care to cast Dany's army as 'foreign invaders'. "I want her to know it was me".

Later in the episode, Jon told Tyrion he needs dragonglass to defeat the White Walkers.

But even as Cersei celebrates, she's also heavily in debt. With the Sand Snakes finished, Cersei has had her vengeance for the death of her daughter, Myrcella (Nell Tiger Free) - and viewers no longer have to deal with the dreadfully written and rightfully derided Dorne storyline. Everything so far in season seven, however, has shattered that notion. She hasn't wanted to unleash her dragons or the Dothraki, but at this point, she's going to have to.

What we're wondering: In that withering exchange between Melisandre and Varys at Dragonstone she remarks that they will both die in the odd land of Westeros-and we're intrigued. Cersei was convinced that Tyrion was behind the murder and their father, Tywin Lannister, oversaw his trial and sentencing. Cersei also insists she is a Lannister and will actually pay her debt. She is interrupted by the arrival of Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright). While he can't explain what being the Three-Eyed Raven means, he tells Sansa that he can see things that happened in the past or are happening in the present. It is enough to unnerve her in the latest episode of Game of Thrones.

Jorah Mormont receives good news, and Sam Tarly faces the consequences of disobeying his Archmaester. And soon he'll be starting his life going around Daenerys Targaryen. Samwell expects a reward for this. According to him, Sammy's reward is not getting expelled from the citadel. On the plus side, the silver-tongued Tyrion is back. Casterly Rock is attacked, but Tyrion, having been in charge of the keep's sewers knows the flawless way to infiltrate it. And, that is because they have attacked the Tyrell's rather than stay behind and protect Casterly Rock against Tyrion. Euron and Cersei plan to Wednesday once the war against Dany is won. It's Lady Olenna all along, which she reveals to Jaime in what is perhaps the best predeath speech Game of Thrones has ever seen.

In "The Queen's Justice", Jaime stormed Highgarden, the Tyrell's land, and took all of the Tyrell's wealth and gold.

Maybe that Mad Queen fan theory about Jaime taking Cersei out will come true after all. Let us know in the comments' section below. Following the third episode, HBO has unveiled the preview of episode 4 titled The Spoils of War.
