When Fire Met Ice… A (late) recap of Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 3


George R.R. Martin’s saga is called A Song of Ice and Fire and all the pieces of evidence in the books point to two of its biggest character, Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen, as the personification of Ice and Fire, respectively. We know their arcs will have to cross one way or another. And here it is. Fans have waited so long for this moment (that’s twenty years for the books’ followers!!!) so it’s really quite a surreal experience to finally see it unfolding before our eyes: Jon and Dany in the same room. Jon and Dany sizing each other up. Jon and Dany talking. Jon and Dany possibly forming the most powerful partnership this side of the Narrow Sea – the frickin’ Song of Ice and Fire, baby! Everything they’ve been through has been building up to this moment. My excitement is off the charts!

Jon and Dany didn’t have the monopoly of this episode, however. It was pretty packed with significant scenes from beginning to end: queens meted out their versions of justice (hence the title The Queen’s Justice), soldiers invaded castles, family members got reunited, promises were fulfilled, and people were killed. My only problem is that D&D have muddled up the timelines in their hurry to reach the ending. I mean, Euron’s ship can travel that fast??? Don’t hurry too much D&D! I don’t know what I’ll do when this show ends! >.<
