Game Of Thrones Season 7 Episode 2 Review- ‘Stormborn’


With Season 7 Episode 2 – Stormborn, it seems that GOT has returned to its original form. Let us take a look at Game Of Thrones Season 7 Episode 2 review. The episode, ‘Stormborn’, opened with a huge load of information as Daenerys made plans to defeat Cersei with the help of vengeance-seeking Olenna Tyrell and Ellaria Martel. Daenerys’ reckless attitude towards Lord Varys was interesting to watch. “You wish to know where my loyalties lie…with the people,” said the former Master of Whisperers. According to a sudden plan introduced by Tyrion, the Lannisters would be neutralized via a smash and grab raid by the Unsullied on the House’s seat at Casterly Rock. The table is all set for what’s to come. Also, it is pretty clear now that Daenerys has developed quite a hunger for power. This is evident from the way she demanded Jon bend the knee. Exiled by Jon Snow, the Red Woman had fetched up on Daenerys’ doorstep. “I believe you have a role to play…as does the King in the North, Jon Snow,” said Melisandre clearly stating that the Mother of Dragons and the lord of Winterfell might find common cause. We all know that Daenerys-Jon alliance has long been on the cards. But we didn’t expect it to be so straightforward.Game Of Thrones Season 7 Episode 2 Review

Cersei Sets The Table

We also had a glimpse of what Cersei is planning by way of encore after destroying the Sept of Balor. Cersei’s dirty trick to gather people on her side, in fact, isn’t to highlight her own good qualities but to scare everybody about what a Targaryen is capable of doing. She finally inaugurated the largest projectile weapon the Seven Kingdoms have yet witnessed. God knows what would happen if she actually manages to kill dragons! Jaime is working hard to help keep Randall Tarly on her side in the battles to come. It is surprising considering that he seemed a little skeptical of her plans just last week.

In Winterfell, Sansa warned Jon of a possible Targaryen trap. An alternative perspective was offered by Ser Davos that dragons breathe fire – and fire destroys Walkers. Ultimately, Jon agreed to a face-to-face meeting with the Mother of Dragons. Although, he shouldn’t have messed with Littlefinger but considering the confession of his weirdly creepy pervy feelings for Sansa what big brother wouldn’t have lashed out like Jon did? Sansa will step aside when Jon comes back, but for now, she’s in control.

There are few reunions in the show that have been building for so long as that of Arya her dire wolf, Nymeria who was chased off into the woods all the way back in the show’s second episode. Arya reunited with Nymeria as she decided to go home for a short time only for the dire wolf to turn her back on her. Even if Nymeria isn’t quite there yet, we can see where these two will be destroying all of Arya’s enemies in the time to come.

Game Of Thrones Season 7 Episode 2 Review: The BattleGame Of Thrones Season 7 Episode 2 Review

We were completely taken aback by a surprise battle scene at the end of the episode. And that was just the closing five minutes! Just as Yara and Ellaria were about to begin their friends with benefits relationship, they were rudely interrupted by an attack from Euron’s fleet. Thanks to him, Tyrion’s plan to strike King’s Landing with the Greyjoy fleet and the Dornish, while the others in Dany’s army complete their task, goes up in smoke Whatever happens now, Euron can already claim the prize for one of the best Game of Thrones entrances ever. “Give your uncle a kiss,” Euron proceeded to leer at Yara as he charged into action. This was one of the season’s outstanding one-liners. Theon’s sudden dive in the sea was a bit confusing. Maybe the former Reek knew that he couldn’t save Yara and if he did, Euron would kill him too or it was all too much for Theon, still clearly working through his time as Ramsay’s manservant. Euron promised Cersei a prize, and it appears that prize will be a good portion of Daenerys’s army.
