Holy mother of dragons! Kiwis react to Game of Thrones

The final scene of the episode, which saw Jaime Lannister and his collection of soldiers take on the fierce Dothraki army alongside Daenerys Targaryen and her dragon Drogon, was one of the most spectacular.

Another excellent scene is when Arya and Brienne spar, in this scene we see just how much Arya actually learned while she was in Braavos. She may be coping with one or two pieces of dramatic news.

According to director Matt Shakman, this friendship led to some weirdness on the set of their character's reunion. Indeed, whether it be Jon, Tyrion, or Varys, all seem convinced that they must convince Daenerys of the danger that is lurking in the North. Ever since the mania of the dramatic series began, Jon Snow has stolen hearts for being one of the most loyal and courageous men on the show. At the moment, he's a man caught between two queens who are willing and capable to use any means necessary to win this war, and the man known as the Kingslayer has to be sceptical of them both.

Don't forget, Daenerys named one of her dragons Rhaegal after her brother, who just so happens to be Jon's father.

This is all tricky business, of course.

Hopefully we'll get to see soon, perhaps against the White Walkers - if Jon bends the knee. While incestuous relationships are nothing new in Westeros, we have a feeling that neither Jon nor Dany would be cool with it.

Despite a truncated run this year, Game of Thrones has packed in more action than you can shake a Valyrian steel sword at. And it seems clear that the showrunners want to plant the seeds of possibility. HBO has the talent - and financial backing - to do even more, which is very, very exciting.

We don't get much from this shot of Sam and Gilly, although judging by Sam's dragonglass discovery in the season seven premiere, there may be potentially world-saving information in them there pages.

"In season six, which was our biggest season up to that point, we had eleven shots featuring Emilia [Daenerys] riding the dragon", VFX supervisor Joe Bauer says in the first behind-the-scenes featurette below.
