Top 3 Moments In ‘The Queen’s Justice’

Another week and another episode of Game of Thrones.  Welcome back and we are here bringing you the top three moments of The Queen’s Justice, the third episode of season 7 Game of Thrones.  Every week during the premier of the seventh season I will post the top three moments from the previous weeks episode so keep checking back!

If I had to label this episode I would have to say it acts as another build up. We are almost half way through the season and I feel like nothing extremely exciting or interesting has occurred.

Some good news is Sam was not exiled for performing the greyscale procedure but rewarded with some dusty old scrolls. Ser Jorah can now head towards Dragonstone and help out with his Queen’s plan to take back the Seven Kingdoms. This is good because after this most recent episode team Targaryen needs all the help they can get. This also means that whatever Qyburn was doing to get himself kicked out of the Citadel must have been off the charts terrible.

Let’s see what made the list this week.


1. The Meeting of Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryencapture1edit

This meeting went as well as it could have. No death or burning people alive. Jon and Daenerys are realizing they have a lot more in common than they think. Besides the similarities in their DNA they both had to create and earn the power around them. It still seems like no one has made the connection between Jon’s parentage yet and there is evidence of this when Davos refers to Jon as a bastard.  It makes you wonder if they follow with what George’s said about a bittersweet ending in the way that no one ever figures out that Rhaegar and Lyanna are actually Jon’s parents.

It was entertaining to see Jon trying to convince people of the White Walkers. He absolutely sounds like a crazy old man who is trying to convince the world that aliens exist.

Jon Snow is an undead man trying to save the living from an incoming army of the undead.

Kind of ironic huh?

The last thing I wanted to mention about Dragonstone are the current military plans coming out of there.  Dany needs to utilize her dragons a lot more as well as ride them.  She could have easily scouted the enemy forces from a safe distance to see where the bulk of the Lannister army was stationed. She is going to need dragon riders and right now is the best time because there are no enemy dragons to worry about.


2. The Last Words of Olenna TyrellCapture5edit

It was sad to see the Queen of Thorns go down this last episode. Olenna was over sixty years old and by Game of Thrones standards that’s competitive.  She went down in her own spectacular fashion by giving Jamie a thorough verbal beat down. 

“I’d hate to die like your son.
Clawing at my neck, foam and bile spilling from my mouth, eyes bloodred, skin purple.
Must of been horrible for you, as a Kingsguard, as a father.
It was horrible enough for me.
A shocking scene.
Not at all what I intended.
You see, I had never seen the poison work before.
Tell Cersei.
I want her to know it was me.”

Jamie has direct confirmation that yet another one of his children was murdered because of the consequences of Cersei’s actions.

Jamie has no comeback and walks away defeated.

To say Jamie is a disappointment this season is an understatement.  He is fully under the control of Cersei and in her bed again. Hopefully this is setting up the downfall of Cersei by his hand. We will never know if he would have tried to stop the destruction of the Sept of Baelor because he had no idea of the plan. Will the show runners make him out to be an anti-hero or another villain this season? 


3. The Reunion of Bran Stark and Sansa Stark

All we need now is Arya to make the trek up north and Jon to get back from Dragonstone, then we will have everyone for a full family reunion!  Part of me thinks that the full Stark reunion won’t happen until the last episode. That will set up the final season and the fight against the Night King.

Meera herself looks extremely fatigued and underweight. It has been a total of 30 episodes since Bran, Meera, Jojen, Hodor, and Summer crossed North of the Wall at the end of season three.  During that time they lost Jojen, Summer, and Hodor all to undead wights so some trauma is to be expected.

Bran: “I can see everything, everything that’s ever happened to anyone, everything that’s happening right now.”

It’s easy to assume that Bran is exhausted after all he’s been through north of the wall. He understands now he has an important role to play so he needs to practice at using the weirwood net and his powers as the three eye raven. Bran probably should have picked another event instead of Sansa’s wedding to Ramsey to prove his current powers to her. Sansa walks away crying and leaves him alone at the weirwood tree in Winterfell.

Speaking of weirwood trees and plugging in, they will have to build Bran some sort of hut or underground cave near the weirwood tree if he has to physically touch it to connect to it. He would spend hours inside the weirwood net and winter is coming so it’s about to get cold!

Other Events in the North

One thing that was not pleasant to see up in the North was the newfound confidence Littlefinger has gained since Jon left Winterfell.  He is now more bold with Sansa, escorting her around the grounds and gives her some crazy mind turning advice.

“Fight every battle, everywhere, always, in your mind. Everyone is your enemy, everyone is your friend. Every possible series of events is happening all at once.”
-Littlefinger

Sounds like Littlefinger took some acid or he could be back up to his regular scheming. He is trying to get into Sansa’s head because he realizes the lack of power he holds in the North and will try to do something about it. Sansa needs to “be a wolf” and take out the threat before any issues pop up.


The End

  1. Thank you for your thoughts! As with anything, everyone’s going to have their own opinions about what’s going to happen in a series. Honestly. I feel that all 3 episodes have been great so far. This week’s episode was more about strategy and setting up for what I think will be an intense episode next week. The meeting between Jon and Dany was so intense. Just knowing the background between both of then and knowing their strong wills made my spine tingle the whole time. No one knows the connection except Bran at the moment as he was able to see the events. I’m not sure if his connecting will be unveiled but I do hope both Dany and Jon decide to trust each other.

    Dany wanted to ride on her dragons but with everyone urging her not to, she didn’t. It would cause quite an uproar if people see the dragons hovering above them. Remember how Cersei was able to win over some of the Southern Lords like Samwell’s father? She preyed on their fears, saying that Dany is the mad king’s daughter and will burn the city to the ground. She has to tread lightly with her dragons. They would have had no knoledge of the Lanisster Army leaving, why would they? From reading your thoughts, it just occured to me that Cersei had to kill Olenna Tyrell because so many Southern families would not fight against Olenna. Now that obstacle has been taken care of.

    • Good point about Cersei playing to the Southern Lords fears. She has them worried. I dislike Randyll Tarly so much for how hes treated Sam. Kind of weird no one has brought up Heartsbane yet.

      With a name like Mother of Dragons they better get used to it! It’s interesting to go back and compare the differences between when Aegon I Targaryen came to conquer the Seven Kingdoms and now Daenerys. She is at such a disadvantage in regards to the resources and manpower that he had. Lack of actual dragon riders is a huge issue as well. He used his dragons more than anything to convince his enemies to bend the knee or burn so she is definitely trying the opposite approach. Like Jon Snow said we don’t have time for petty squabbling!

      You would think Daenerys’ army would use scouts just like the Nights Watch does with the Wilding armies to track their movement. Since they also have ravens to transport messages its even more convenient than dragons.

      Also your right about Olenna’s death. Cersei needed her dead ASAP to secure her allies. Thanks for your comment. 🙂

  2. One thing that gets me wondering – Bran has seen everything, so does he know just how sinister Littlefinger is? Does he know he betrayed Ned and Sansa and also is not trustworthy at all? Is he just not saying anything because that’s his shtick now? I don’t know, I’m interested to hear what you think

    • I was wondering the same thing so ive been looking into it. The general consensus online is that Bran is overloaded with everything.
      Once they are discovered in the cave by the Night King at the end of the last season, Lord Bloodraven tells Bran he has to become the Three-Eyed Raven. When Bran asks Bloodraven if he is “ready to become the Three-Eyed Raven” Bloodraven responds with “no.”
      The only two people that make it away are Bran and Meera and they head south. On the way to the wall Bran has Meera bring him to a weirwood tree and Meera specifcially asks Bran if he is ready and Bran responds with “I’m the Three-Eyed Raven now. I have to be ready for this.” He then connects to the tree, that’s when we get the Tower of Joy Scene and the gates of information are opened.
      Its after this point that we see a noticeable change in his character so he very well could be processing mass amounts of data and cant sort through it or do anything else really. That’s why when Ed asks who Bran is at the Wall we just get a bunch of information spit out at us awkwardly. He recalled the memories he has that are associated with Ed from the weirwood net and that’s what was popping up in his mind.
      This could also be why Bran brings up Sansa’s wedding to Ramsey and her assault at Winterfell. Hes not trying to be cold, he is just overwhelmed with memories and information that he wasn’t ready to handle and is having a hard time processing it all.
      I can’t wait until we get some more scenes with Bran because we really don’t have too much to work with right now. Thanks for your comment!

    • Well I think that Bran is pretty numb to everything while he tries to control it. This could also be a type of foreshadowing, you know something like you let evil be done so that a greater evil doesn’t occur. There’s always a positive and negative reaction to any action and maybe Bran see’s what would happen if Littlefinger wasn’t being sneaking and trying to influence Sansa. I personally think that she should learn from him, but don’t let him manipulate her.

  3. I think my extremely subjective favourite
    moment from this episode would have to be Tyrion’s brooding about failure… being outdone by Jon Snow’s far more stylish brooding on the cliff… 😉 I love the interactions between Tyrion and Jon Snow. So good to see them together again.

    • Aw man! Those smirks they made to each other on the beach was awesome! I really enjoyed their interactions at the wall so it’s good to see them back together. Thanks for the comments 🙂
