Game of Thrones

TV Plus (South Africa) - - 28 AUGUST -

Sea­son 7 Mon­days M-Net (*101) 21:30 (Ex­press 03:00) Fan­tasy

Win­ter has come to sea­son 7 of fan­tasy series Game Of Thrones (2011-cur­rent). The short­ened sea­son ends tonight and while the script and episode were still un­der lock and key when tv­plus went to print, there have been more than enough talk­ing points, twists and turns over the past seven episodes, like…

Episode 1 (17 July) saw The Mother Of Dragons Daen­erys Tar­garyen (Emilia Clarke) ar­riv­ing at Dragon­stone with her army, fire-breath­ing dragons and in the mood for a fight. She didn’t sail across the world just to take back her fam­ily home – she wants the Iron Throne and Lan­nis­ter blood in sea­son 8. Arya Stark (Maisie Wil­liams) was at her venge­ful best in episode 1 when she posed as Stark en­emy Walder Frey (David Bradley), who she’d killed last sea­son, and poi­soned every­one in his fam­ily. Not bad pay­back for the Freys’ be­trayal of her fam­ily in the in­fa­mous Red Wed­ding episode from sea­son 3 (2013) . Cer­sei Lan­nis­ter (Lena Headey) spent the sea­son plot­ting re­venge for her fam­ily’s down­fall, es­pe­cially her youngest son Tom­men’s (Dean-Charles Chap­man) sui­cide at the end of sea­son 6. What she didn’t know was that her brother-lover Jaime (Niko­laj Coster-Wal­dau) learnt in episode 2 who’d poi­soned their son Jof­frey (Jack Glee­son) in sea­son 4 (2014): “sweet old lady” Olenna Tyrell (Di­ana Rigg). And Jon Snow (Kit Har­ing­ton) met with Daen­erys in the hopes of form­ing an al­liance. Did we men­tion that they two don’t know yet that they’re re­lated?

The Mother Of Dragons is on a mis­sion!
