Here’s a spoiler-filled review of what happened over the last three weeks.

The first two weeks were focused on character development and growth. Jon Snow rode a dragon in the premiere and found out about his true lineage. In the second episode, he told Dany the truth about who he is and Dany immediately worried about losing her claim to the Iron Throne (which Jon repeatedly has said he doesn’t want.) Dany saved Jon when the Night King and Viserion fought him and Rhaegal in Episode 3, hurting Rhaegal pretty bad.

Arya and Gendry finally hooked up, and Missandei and Grey Worm made plans for their lives after the war. They all survived the Battle of Winterfell, but Jorah was killed, devastating Dany. Theon also gave up his life to try to save Bran, but in the end it was Arya who unexpectedly bested the Night King. Gendry proposed to Arya after the big battle, but she said being a lady, even his, wasn’t the right life for her.

By Episode 4, Sansa and Arya were even more suspicious of Dany (without any good reason), as was Varys. Dany begged Jon to keep his lineage a secret, but he told his sisters and Sansa promptly told Tyrion despite promising not to tell anyone. This eventually got back to Dany, who felt betrayed by Jon.

Meanwhile, Cersei hired Bronn to kill Jaime and Tyrion, but Bronn agreed to hold off if Tyrion can guarantee him Highgarden. Brienne and Jaime made a love connection in Episode 4, but Jaime left her for Cersei. Sadly, it turned out that he left for Cersei because he loved Cersei.

Euron bested Daenerys in a sneak attack at Dragonstone, killing Rhaegal. Missandei was kidnapped in the sneak attack and later beheaded at King’s Landing, with Dany and Grey Worm watching. Missandei’s last words were: “Dracarys.”

Jon did a pretty terrible job at consoling Daenerys later and many people think Varys tried to poison her. Varys was killed by Drogon for treason, and they headed out for battle with King’s Landing. They bested Cersei easily, but when Cersei rang the bell of surrender, Dany lost it and used Drogon to burn the entire city and many innocents, plus the army that surrendered to her. It was horrific.

The Hound died killing the Mountain, and Cersei and Jaime died together (after Jaime killed Euron in hand-to-hand combat.) Arya was left to walk through the ashes of King’s Landing before finding a white horse that survived and riding it away to safety.
