Not long after the epic episode of Game of Thrones, HBO discharged another review for the fourth episode of this penultimate season, titled The Spoils of War. This will air on Sunday, August 6 at 9 PM ET on HBO.
Furthermore, if you haven’t seen The Queen’s Justice Episode, there will be a lot of spoilers beneath, so read with caution.
As is obvious in this trailer, the war has positively started, since Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) apparently takes an intense move. This first look additionally guarantees one of the greatest reunions the show brings to the table. That’s because a quick look at Arya Stark sees her watching out over snow covered woods, peering towards Winterfell in the distance. It would appear that she is eventually prepared to return home.
The trailer, which comes thanks to Game of Thrones YouTube, starts with Queen Cersei (Lena Headey) disclosing to Tycho Nestoris (Mark Gatiss) from the Iron Bank of Braavos that the only thing she’s concerned with is restoring control over this continent and each individual on it.
Tycho guarantees Cersei that she can rely on the Iron Bank, when the gold arrives. We learned in the previous episode that the Iron Throne is broke, and they owe the Iron Bank a considerable amount of cash. Cersei assured Tycho that the Lannister’s always pay their debts. In addition to this, we additionally discovered towards the end of the previous episode how they anticipated paying that debt.
The unsullied forces led by Daenerys Targaryen raged the doors at the seat of the Lannister’s power, Casterly Rock, where they could enter the fortress through a mystery door that Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) had constructed himself. The unsullied effortlessly took Casterly Rock. However, they were in for an incredible shock, when the Iron Fleet of Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbaek) touched base to destroy the fleet that Theon (Alfie Allen) and Yara Greyjoy (Gemma Whelan) stole from them towards the end of Season 6. The majority of the Lannister army made a beeline for Highgarden to assault their previous partners, the well-off House Tyrell, which they took effortlessly as Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) had a last talk with Lady Olenna Tyrell (Diana Rigg) before poisoning her. Nonetheless, Olenna got in one last blow, conceding that she had poisoned Jaime’s child, King Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) before she died.
The trailer depicts Jaime looking over some of the gold they had seized from Highgarden, and now, with their debt paid down to the last cent, the Iron Bank will keep on financing the Iron Throne’s fights against its numerous foes. One of these foes is Daenerys Targaryen, who has endured two defeats in succession. In the Season 7 debut, Olenna was sent back to Highgarden to collect her army, which, alongside the army from Dorne, would be utilized to assault King’s Landing and take the Iron Throne. The armada never made it to Dorne, following an unexpected assault from Euron Greyjoy, and the Lannister’s have assumed control over Highgarden. This means Dany is out of partners, a point she raises in the trailer amid a meeting on the Dragonstone beach with her nearest counsellors, where she additionally lets them know, “Enough with the clever plans.”
We likewise get brief shots of a knife being unsheathed by an obscure character, Podrick (Daniel Portman) being thumped to the ground, Theon and other Ironborn soldiers bringing a little boat aground, Jon Snow and Daenerys going into a cave where the dragon glass can be mined from, and shots of Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen), Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) and Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie). However, the last shot is the most fascinating of all.
In the previous episode, Daenerys recommended that she begin taking issues into her own hands, implying that she could ride upon her dragons to decimate the armada of Euron Greyjoy, which has been a persistent issue for Dany since this season started. All her advisers, including Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel), Lord Varys (Conleth Hill) and Tyrion were against it, since, while her dragons might be resistant to most conventional assaults, all it takes is one precise arrow to end her journey for the Iron Throne. Since her initial two plans have fizzled, it appears Dany could be overlooking their advice this time around. Furthermore, keeping in mind that we don’t get a super-clear shot of Dany on one of her dragons, it appears she is in reality riding one of these into fight, to score in this Great War.
