Game of Thrones S07 E04: ‘The Spoils of War’

Wow.  Just… wow.  Over these last seven point four three seasons, Game of Thrones has left me in many states:  Sad, exultant, angry, completely bereft of hope that the concept of “good” was anything but an illusion manufactured by our ape brains to cope with the sheer cruelty and meaningless of life

…yeah, that was a dark time, wasn’t it…

After a week spent weeping every time someone asked us to hold the door, we really needed some additional time to decompress and see where the kingdoms were going next.  Thankfully, the showrunners of “Game of Thrones” heard our prayers.  Not a lot actually happened, but what did set up the series for the remainder of the season (and beyond). We get to revisit some old friends and some old enemies, characters make some important and game changing decisions, and we’re left to wonder what exactly has Drogon been eating over the last few months while his Mom was working on the recipe for Khal-krispies.  Find out what went down and what it might mean after the break.  And yes, lots and lots of spoilers.
