Game of Thrones S07E05: Is [spoiler] going to betray Daenerys?

"Game of Thrones" fans believe that Tyrion fits all three presumptions. It's no news to the viewers that Snow is a Targaryen, but is he about to find out?

In his review of the episode, Game of Thrones showrunner David Benioff spoke about that scene and said: "There's tension on two sides".

The first images from Sunday's brand new episode, "Eastwatch," present a sobering picture of the path of destruction left by Drogon as Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) walks through a scorched battlefield. It sounds like Varys disagrees with that policy and is trying to rein in the Mother of Dragons. Given his fear for Jaime at the end of the last episode, he may be feeling conflicted about the entire operation. Will they finally figure out they're related? Indeed, whether it be Jon, Tyrion, or Varys, all seem convinced that they must convince Daenerys of the danger that is lurking in the North. Since he's in his furs, perhaps he's thinking of heading back to Winterfell, or towards, Eastwatch (which gives this episode its title), where he's sent the Free Folk to fend off the White Walkers. Or maybe Jon just always looks like that and Dany is anxious that something is wrong with him. It would be awkward to add a P.S. like "Also, FYI, I saw your birth and your mom's death". So, the big battle against the Night's King will begin soon.

Perhaps most symbolically, there's also a photo of Cersei (Lena Headey) sitting alone on the edge of her bed. So it may be that she could turn to the Golden Company. At this point in the show, though, it seems like only villains like Cersei or creeps like Littlefinger are allowed to look happy, so maybe it's a good sign that Tyrion is so mopey. The audience would love to watch something brewing between them but for now the neither the trailer nor the stills suggests something of the sort.
