Geekery: There’s a Lot Going on in this GoT Finale Preview

2 Minute Read
Aug 22 2017

There’s one episode left in the season, and plenty of characters to kill.

How about that throw?

Ok, with that out out of the way let’s take a look at what HBO has in store for next week…

  • Jon, Tyrion, and allies meeting with Cersei and Jaime in what looks like King’s Landing
  • Another meeting at what looks to be Dragonpit
  • Cersei obviously has plan for this meeting – but will those plans pan out?
  • Sansa… being Sansa
  • The Unsullied and Dothraki getting ready to take a castle containing Bronn and Jaime
  • Jon’s use of an interesting double-entendre at the end there. Hmmm.

A little background on the significance of the setting of that meeting: Dragonpit was where the Targaryens kept their dragons; it’s on Rhaenys’ hill in King’s Landing. It was all but destroyed during the Dance of the Dragon – the Targaryen civil war. It holds a lot of meaning. The pit led to the demise of the dragons. Their confinement there let them literally diminish in stature until they were the size of a cat. The last dragon – before Daenerys brought them back – died there. It would be fitting for Cersei to try to kill the last of the Targaryens here.


There are things unanswered from the last episodes:

  • Where is Sam going?
  • What the heck is Bran up to?
  • What’s up with the fancy new wight dragon?
  • Will The Hound make it back to Cersei with his captive to convince her to join the fight?
  • Baelish’s plans?
  • Arya’s plans?


Let’s start taking bets on who doesn’t make it out of the finale alive.
