'Game of Thrones' cinematographer says next episode even better than dragon one

Be careful: spoilers on the fifth episode of "Game of Thrones" season 7 will follow. Judging by how Tyrion has time to head back from Blackwater Rush to Dragonstone in this episode, it's likely there's also been time for the queen to hear the news of her brother (and lover) Jaime.

Perhaps they are being cautious after the hacking they experienced last week, but there is a fair amount to mull over.

Fans watched as Daenerys Targaryan and her beloved dragon Drogon, backed by the fearsome Dothraki army, effortlessly laid waste to Westeros queen Cersei Lannister's beleaguered troops.

Apparently, Bronn - judging from a freeze-frame look - knocked him off his horse just as he was about to be engulfed in dragon fire. This is the one action scene in the top five, and true to principle, it focuses on a conflict between two main characters on opposite sides of a battle: Jaime Lannister and Daenerys Targaryen, immediately preceded by a scene showing Tyrion Lannister's internal conflict at seeing his family's army set aflame.

Don't expect this to be the ignoble end to the knight, though.

What do you guys make of the new pics?

While it might seem like a long shot, Missandei as Daenerys' right-hand woman is also in love with Grey Worm, now stuck at Casterly Rock. But what if he's referring to Cersei, Tyrion's sister? If he does see his brother Jamie, might Tyrion try a desperate diplomatic act to save the Seven Kingdoms since the White Walkers pose the biggest threat.

This has always been prominent in the series - in the final minutes of Season 6, Varys went on a cross-continental journey from Meereen to Dorne and back again in the time it took Cersei to light a fuse, while Littlefinger's teleporting abilities are well documented - but is definitely becoming more flagrant as we accelerate towards the finale. When she thought so before, she still had her children, but now she's all alone.

Game of Thrones tends to make your pulse quicken - but now we know exactly which moments in the show are the most thrilling. An unhinged Cersei is not good for either her allies or adversaries.

He was behind "The Spoils of War", and the ominously-named upcoming episode "Eastwatch". "We know from Bran, the Three-Eyed Raven, that Ned Stark was not Jon Snow's father". Some of them have basically been proven already (R+L=J) while others don't seem to be panning out (Lady Stoneheart is coming...). The promo opens with Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) asking the remaining Lannister soldiers to pledge their loyalty to her and "bend the knee". Fast forward to 10:45 to see the epic scene.
