Game of Thrones season 7, episode 5: Eastwatch predictions

Share

The last episode of "Game of Thrones", "Spoils of War" ended with a cliffhanger, but that isn't the only reason why fans can't wait to see the upcoming episode which is titled "Eastwatch." . George R.R. Martin's series is called A Song of Ice and Fire after all.

Accordingly, Daenerys Targaryen, Cersei Lannister, Sansa Stark and Jaime Lannister - played by Emilia Clarke, Lena Headey, Sophie Turner and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, respectively - follow suit.

But with dust settling on their charred remnants and the fate of battle-hardened King-slayer Ser Jamie Lannister - hopelessly weighed down by his armour after being tackled into a river - still hanging in the balance, viewers have been given a taste of what to expect when episode five finally airs.

Now, let's talk about Dany's brothers.

Why? Perhaps this was the first moment we realized that Dany has a lot of the Mad King in her.

This is a good time to remind everyone that R+L=J stands for Rhaegar+Lyanna=Jon. We all know that Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) shows in his vision that Jon Snow is the son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen. That's it. They're not cousins, they are in no way "removed". If Jon marries Dany he doesn't have to bend the knee to her anymore. Loyalty might not be the issue, but the nausea he feels over his queen's ruthless tactics is palpable, just from these photos. Is it possible she just received bad news about her brother and lover's fate?

Considering Varys is battling some inner complications of his own after his impending doom was teased by Melisandre - maybe they'll both runaway together into the Westeros sunset and live happily ever after?

The meeting of Jon and Daenerys is one that Game of Thrones fans have anticipated for a long time.

This being said, it's clear that Dany's thinking has been massively changed after that memorable scene when she visited the Dragonstone caves and got a glimpse at the symbols that were created by the Children of The Forrest.
