Game of Thrones series seven was pretty epic, so much so we’re still reminiscing about all the pretty mind-blowing things we saw and heard throughout the seven episodes.
Here's 10 of the best.
10. 'You'll put a hole in that chainmail'
Ser Davos Seaworth claiming he is in Kings Landing to ship in some “fermented crab meat” – a supposed Westerosi aphrodisiac – was not only a great moment due to the sheer amount of tension it caused but also due to the line “You'll put a hole in that chainmail”. A quote that people could be heard using all week after the episode.
9. Randyll and Dickon Tarly meet a fiery end
Tom Hopper, the actor who played Dickon Tarley, recently stepped of a huge success in the series Black Sails. So seeing him appear on our screens during season seven was quite a shock.
Given that his recent role as Billy Bones is working out well, it was assumed we would be seeing much more of him. However his time in Westeros lasted a total of 270 seconds, reinforcing the fact that no matter what you think might happen, Game of Thrones will always throw out a surprise.
8. Gilly the scholar
Gilly is the one who accidentally stumbles on a bit of text claiming that Jon is actually a Targaryen. According to the diary of High Septon Maynard, Rheagar married Lyanna Stark in secret – therefor making Jon the true heir to the Iron Throne.
7. Little Finger being sentenced to death
After numerous Sansa/Arya encounters that led us to believe that the two were about to butt heads, it all came to a halt when Arya appeared to be up in court in front of Sansa. You could almost hear the world hold its breath until Sansa uttered Little Finger’s name instead of her younger sister’s.
One of the few bad guys who is sure to be missed.
6. The Loot Train Attack
When Dany decided to attack the Lannister army on its way back from High Garden, it was the first showing of the strength she has amassed in Westeros. The Dothraki hoard and Unsullied armies both looked terrifying.
Couple that with the fire breathing dragon that kept ripping through Queen Cersei’s army, it really hit home how big of a threat to the Iron Throne Dany is.
5. Cersei meets the Wight
Cersei Lannister has stared down some of the fiercest Westeros warriors. She tamed the unhinged “King of Pike” Euron Greyjoy and destroyed the Imperial Sept with hundreds of dignitaries and allies inside.
It’s safe to say Cersei is one of the toughest people in the entire show. Yet when the Wight jumped out of that box, actress Lena Headey’s character showed the first ounce of fear we have seen in all seven seasons.
4. Jon and Daenerys finally meet
Jon and Dany meeting is probably one of the most anticipated moments so far. Many of us kept wondering how their meeting would play out. With Jon refusing to bend the knee when they first encountered one and other, it was unclear if they would end up becoming allies.
Then when Sam and Gilly work out that Jon is Dany’s nephew, it all got a little weird. Especially given THAT night the two spent on the boat together.
3. Arya killing the Freys
It’s safe to say since Argus Filch graced out screens in the Harry Potter Franchise, we’ve all had a mild dislike of David Bradley no matter how often you told yourself he was just acting – he’s literally THAT good.
However, as Walder Frey he took it to a whole new level. Never before has anyone been so happy to watch someone eat his sons baked in a meat pie. Arya Stark then wearing his face to poison his other sons was just the icing on the cake.
2. Olenna tells Jaime Lannister that she killed Joffrey
Probably the biggest mic drop in the entire show, if not of all time. Olenna Tyrell drinks the poison giving her a quick painless death, which Jaime being the (slight) gentleman he is provided for her rather than butcher her with his sword.
It was at the moment she knew she was dying she informed the King Slayer that his brother Tyrian wasn’t behind the murder of his son Joffrey, It was her – and she wanted Cersei to know it.
1. The Night King breaks down the Wall
The moment the Night King rode undead Viserion and destroyed the Wall was just faultless. The CGI was immaculate, the timing was perfect and even the idea that the dragon simply blasting down the ice wall fortified in ancient magic didn’t seem out of place.
Until that point, the Wall was made out to be unbreakable, meaning the Night King has shown how much of a legitimate threat he is to Westeros. And him riding an ice dragon through the wall leading his army of White Walkers and Wights further proves that.
