: Game of Thrones Ep 704 "Eastwatch" Review
This week on The Harold & Maudecast's weekly Game of Thrones recap 'We Talk Thrones' hosts Sarah and Jake review Game of Thrones, Episode 705 'Eastwatch'.
Now that I've got your attention! Said Daenerys. The realities of war have set in for Jaime who heads back to Kings Landing to report to Cersei. Deanerys returns to Dragonstone where Jon Snow is waiting to pet Drogon, more importantly Drogon seems to be waiting for Jon to pet him.
Deanerys and Jon's sexually tensed up moment on the cliff is interrupted by the return of Jorah who clearly still pines for his Khaleesi.
Meanwhile at Winterfell, Bran, doing his three eyed raven thing spies the Night King marching on Eastwick with his army. The news quickly reaches Jon who's excitement for learning Bran and Arya are alive and well is short lived with the news of the walking dead .
After hatching a pretty ridiculous plan with Tyrion and Davos: Sir Davos smuggles Tyrion into Kings Landing to secretly meet with Jaime. Jon and Jorah (and Gendry who, surprise, Sir Davos finds in Kings Landing) travel to Eastwick, pick up Tormund, travel north of the wall, capture a White Walker, bring it to Kings Landing to show Cersei the threat is real. No problem!
Over at the Citadel, Sam is growing tired of the meisters who dismiss the raven from Brandon Stark about the marching dead as fake news. Gilly inadvertently confirms unequivocally that Jon is the rightful eire to the throne. Unfortunately Sam's too busy bitching about the meisters to notice. Sam exits the Citadel with with Gilly, little Sam and a bunch of book he stole. We hope one of those books contained that bit about Rhaegar's annulment and subsequent marriage to Llyanna.
The Tarly family legacy is all on Sam now since Daenerys had his brother and father incinerated for refusing to bend the knee. No more Dickon jokes.
Back in Winterfell, Little Finger is hell bent on causing disruption, this time between Arya and Sansa. We'll see how that plays out, our money is on A Girl is No One.
Episode 705 leaves us with Jon Snow and his newly formed Fellowship of the Dead made up of, Jon, Jorah, Gendry, Tormund, The Hound, Berric Dondarrion and Thoros of Myr. We're guessing not all of these A Team members (www.youtube.com/watch?v=AMSlT5pYU3w) are gonna make it back alive. Here's hopin this accelerated season gives us an answer on that in the next episode.
