Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 3, “The Queen’s Justice” is written by David Benioff & D.B. Weiss and directed by Mark Mylod. This is the official synopsis:
“Daenerys holds court. Tyrion back channels. Cersei returns a gift. Jaime learns from his mistakes.”
Even as we grieve the losses of this week’s episode, we are dying to see what happens next. HBO has released a set of images taken from the next episode of Game Of Thrones Season 7 Episode 3, titled ‘The Queen’s Justice’ and it teases the series’ longest-awaited Jon and Daenerys meeting. Cersei and Euron are celebrating their bloody victory at sea, and Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen are finally coming face to face. This is both frustrating and exciting. Fans have been waiting for quite a long time for this moment. Finally, two of the show’s biggest characters will share screen time in the very next episode.
One picture shows Jon Snow arriving at Dragonstone prepared to meet Daenerys Targaryen. Other pictures include Daenerys on her throne, Tyrion looking concerned as well as Littlefinger. Another picture shows Grey Worm in full armor, fully prepared for the battle to come at Casterly Rock. Littlefinger talks with Sansa and Varys speak with the queen. We get to see the arrival of Jon and Davos on Dragonstone, as well as a conversation between Varys and Melisandre, which could prove really interesting, given Varys’s history and Melisandre’s habit of knowing things. Let us take a look at this Game Of Thrones Season 7 Episode 3 Preview.
Game Of Thrones Season 7 Episode 3 Preview
Remember, back in Game Of Thrones Season 7 episode 1, Euron vowed to return to King’s Landing with a present for Cersei to make her reconsider his proposal? In Game Of Thrones Season 7 episode 2, we saw Euron Greyjoy lay siege to the Greyjoys’ Iron Fleet. He won the battle at sea and took Ellaria, Tyene and Yara Greyjoy captive. In the teaser trailer for this week’s episode, Euron is seen valiantly riding through King’s Landing presumably because he earned Cersei an early advantage in the war for the Iron Throne. He is parading a chained Yara, Ellaria and Tyene through the city. Giving Myrcella’s killers to Cersei would be quite the gift.
The Queen’s justice
The most obvious explanation is that the title refers to Queen Cersei exacting revenge against Ellaria for killing her daughter Myrcella back in Season 5.
Casterly Rock has been mentioned but never shown. This is the first time in Game of Thrones that we will see it. The castle is built into a rock formation and has many hidden catacombs and entryways through which the Unsullied can attack if they can figure out where to go. Luckily for them, Tyrion has extensive knowledge of the Lannister home. In the teaser, we see the Unsullied setting sail for Casterly Rock, storming the gates of the castle and leaving some Lannister soldiers dead.
Interpretation of Jon and Daenerys meet up
Jon and Davos Seaworth (Liam Cunningham) will arrive at Dragonstone and be greeted by Tyrion first before being taken to meet the queen in the Dragonstone throne room. In “Stormborn,” Dany made it clear she wants Jon to come and bend the knee before the true queen. Jon will also pay a visit to Daenerys in her chambers. Davos almost lets it slip that Jon came back from the dead saying he took a dagger to the heart for his people but Jon cuts him off. They have a back and forth about their accomplishments in why they are where they are today. Jon is dedicated to destroying the White Walkers, and Daenerys has a mountain of Walker-destroying Dragonglass at her feet. Moreover, Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow, said in ELLE’s August issue that he thinks Jon and Daenerys finally meeting “will be a huge pleasure,” giving GOT fans hope for a powerful alliance between the two. This clashing of important characters is going to be unbelievably exciting, and it could go wonderfully right or it could go horribly wrong.
