Game Of Thrones S07 E04 ‘The Spoils Of War’

Jamie Lannister charges valiantly towards Danaerys as Drogon turns his head and readies yet another epic fire breathing attack. Who survives? Is Jaime dead? 

Danaerys asks Jon to give her advice on whether or not to join the battle at Casterly Rock. The iconic Dothraki horse hooves pounding on the ground beyond the horizon signalled the impending doom for the Lannister army with Jaime at its forefront. As the wild charge and war cries of the Dothraki blood riders echoed in the air, it was inevitable that slaughter would follow. 

Arya reaches Winterfell and meets with Sansa and Bran who rendezvous at the Godswood where Bran, who recently was gifted by Littlefinger with the Valyrian steel dagger from season 1, passes the weapon on to Arya - rather odd given the dagger was meant to kill Bran when he was but a kid.

Minutes before the brutal battle at Casterly Rock, Jaime sees off carts of gold taken as spoils of war from the Tyrell's Highgarden capital. With the carts safe passage to Kingslanding narrowly assured the brutal battle begun. 

Believing the Dothraki were enough to destroy the Lannisters, the audience were taken by surprise as Danaerys and her prized dragon Drogon soared dominatingly across the clear skies of Westeros. 'Fire and Blood', the words on the Targaryen sigil sprung to mind as Drogon was ordered to burn the Lannister home land to ash along with its outmanoeuvred soldiers whose flesh melted and burnt. 

Bronn, the cunning cutthroat sellsword, ran towards the anti-dragon defence unit and shot an arrow straight at Drogon who became disoriented and momentarily hurt. After this scene, Jaime was seen charging towards Danaerys and her dragon with Tyrion praying Jaime to stop. The episode then concluded with Jaime pushed into the water and slowly sinking into its depths.

I would rate this episode a solid...
