Last week third episode, The Queen’s Justice of ‘Game of Thrones’ season 7 was released. In this episode, first very first battle scene we get to see with a high pack of action, but not exactly long running and high stake battle. But in this episode, we all witnessed the powerful characters coming face to face. Things getting serious when Jon Snow meets Daenerys. This episode had plenty of twist and shocking moments for viewers. After repeatedly watching, even more, depths of the story came out.
Quick recap of The Queen’s Justice-
At Dragonstone, finally Jon Snow met Daenerys and without kneeling told her about the White Walkers, Cersei successfully revenges her daughter’s death, Olenna confessed to Jaime about murdering his son, Joffrey. The unsullied army takes the Casterly Rock. Asides from this, there are some deep work or Easter Eggs we missed or ignored while watching the show. Hence, Hero’s Facts have listed down top 5 Easter eggs you missed on The Queen’s Justice.
1. JON SNOW WITH HIS CLASSICAL BLUE-GRAY NORTHEN FILTER
This season has hardly 7 episodes, so it has to cover all the storyline. Hence, The Queen’s Justice wasted no time in bringing important those two powerful characters, Ice and Fire together. This is the first time Jon Snow has travel to the south. But one thing we ignored about his outfit. He never gives importance to Stark/Snow more out of his icy element. This is the first time we saw Jon Snow travels without the perpetual blue-gray filter on his handsome face.
2. LIKE FATHER & LIKE SON
In the last Game of Thrones articles, we had a discussion about how Jon Snow hit Littlefinger hard against the wall like Ned Stark’s classical movie. In this episode, When Jon Snow with Davos summon the mother of dragons, Davos described Jon in a way that,
“He is the first to make allies of wildings and Northmen. He was named Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch. He was named king in the North. Not because of his birth-right; He has no birthright, He’s a damn bastard. All those hard sons of bitches chose him as their leader…because they believe in him. All those things you don’t believe in, he faced those things. He fought those things for the good of his people. He risked his life for his people. He took a knife in the heart for his people. He gave his own…”
And they Jon stop him by starring.
This similar situation happen with Daenerys back in season 2 where Ser Jorah Mormont told her about her older brother,
“When your brother Rhaegar lead his army into battle at the Trident, men died for him because they believed in him because they loved him.”
Here it is, Jon Snow, saying the same about himself.
3. WILL BRAN STARK EXPOSE LITTLEFINGER
While Jon Snow is at Dragonstone for his social business, Petyr Baelish aka Littlefinger got much more time to spend with Sansa as he wants. In this episode, Littlefinger decided to offer her some free advice,
“Don’t fight in the North or the south. Fight every battle, everywhere, always. In your mind. Everyone is your enemy, everyone is your friend. Every possible series of events are happening all at once. Live that way and nothing will surprise you. Everything that happens will be something that you’ve seen before.”
After that suddenly, Sansa got a new visitor, none other than her small brother, Bran Stark, but now he is Three-Eyed Raven. He tells Sansa about his supernatural powers,
“I’m the Three-Eyed Raven…its difficult to explain. It means I can see everything, everything that’s ever happened to anyone. Everything that’s ever happened to anyone. Everything that’s happening now. It’s all pieces now. Fragments. I need to learn to see better. When the long night comes again, I need to be ready.”
Bran can actually see things. The fact that he is now at Winterfell and could possibly expose Littlefinger because he is the one who betrayed Ned Stark back in season 1. Once he gets his power under control, he might see the truth about Littlefinger’s involvement in Ned’s betrayal.
Also in the next episode, Arya Stark is also coming to Winterfell. Littlefinger can easily tear apart two sisters. In the next trailer, Littlefinger holding the same dagger that was used by an assassination attempt to kill Bran. Perhaps, he will try again and then that would be the end of him.
4. DAENERYS IS NOT THE ONLY TARGARYEN
When Jon meets Daenerys at Dragonstone, She tells him that she is the last of her race,
“I am the Last Targaryen, Jon Snow. Honor to pledge your ancestor made to mine.”
But in reality, she is talking to the son of her older brother, Rhaegar Targaryen. In the last season 6, HBO officially proclaiming the Bastard of Winterfell as the only son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark.
The only book reader will know that the season Ned didn’t tell anyone about Jon, not even his wife, Catelyn. Because he was afraid of Robert’s wraith.
5. THE END WAR
At the end where unsullied army attacks Casterly Rock. But actually, Jaime Lannister spilt his armies, allowing Team Tyrion a hollow victory but at the same time, securing a place for himself and Cersei at Highgardern. When Jaime informs Lady Olenna that he followed the same strategy that Robb Stark used on him at the Whispering Wood.
“As Robb Stark did to me at Whispering Wood. There are always lessons in failures.”
Concluding this episode, all the Tyrells are dead now. At Casterly Rock, Team Daenerys has suffered a major loss. Next Sunday, in the fourth episode of Game of Thrones, The Spoils of War, Arya Returns to Winterfell, a massive showdown between the Dothraki and Lannisters.
Game of Thrones season 7 continues on HBO, Sky Atlantic and NOWTV on Sunday nights.
