'Game of Thrones' Season 7 Episode 6

Last night's new episode of Game of Thrones was something else, and it sets everything up for a massive season 7 finale. But they can't be planning any sieges, can they?

Stuck on a small patch of land in the middle of an icy lake, the White Walkers watch the men closely. The next moment when King in the North addresses her as "Dany", our happiness was bound the leaps.

When a ragtag band of heroes journeys to the edge of the world in the next episode of Game of Thrones, it's bound to be harrowing.

As book readers have noted for years now, ice dragons are also mentioned most frequently by Jon Snow in "A Song of Ice and Fire", as explained by Redditor LiveVirus here. "We didn't really know what a phenomenon it was going to be, and I think he was being less guarded than we've become since then". Viserion opens his eyes which are as blue as the Night King. While seasons 1-6 all kicked off production in the summer and rolled into winter, now that Winter Has Come to Westeros, it makes sense that the start date of production would be pushed back.

In last night's episode, the dragon Viserion died, shot down by the Night King.

Meeting to discuss their common enemy, it appears that Cersei will finally meet Jon Snow at the dragon pit, where he tells her: "There is only one war that matters".

'Red alert' to stop Grace Mugabe leaving South Africa
All week, the image of the gash on the 20-year-old's forehead has circulated on social media, newspapers and news channels. She claims the first lady's bodyguards stood by and watched as Mugabe attacked her.

Yes, the flames decreased as the Night King got near. Typically, such a rare weapon would be passed down to the successor of a House, but since Jorah was banished from Bear Island for selling poachers into slavery to get more money, his father refused to hand over Longclaw.

Arya just won't let things go. We see Tyrion looking grim on the deck of one ship, and Varys, Theon, and some Dothraki are in the background.

This being GoT, the episode left fans with several talking points to mull over before next week's finale, chief of which involved a shocking death scene which may have confirmed a long-running series prophecy in a rather chilling manner.

We have met the third head of the dragon, and he is dead.

But Clarke does see some grim humor in the fact that it was Viserion, who was named after Daenerys' abusive brother Viserys, was the one to flip. Stranger things have happened.
