Daenerys needs some R-E-S-P-E-C-T, y’all.
After a decisive (if harrowing) victory that saw our Unburnt Queen torch a whole field of Lannister soldiers (and possibly drown Jaime?) in her first battle on Westerosi soil, the teaser trailer for next week’s episode is definitely playing up the idea that Dany is taking a few too many cues from her father, the “Mad King” Aerys.
“I’m not here to murder bend the knee and join me, or refuse, and die,” she tells the few Lannister soldiers who survived her flamethrower routine.
Her apparent lust for power definitely seems to have Varys shook, as we see him telling Tyrion, “You need to find a way to make her listen.”
Elsewhere, Jon is namedropping little brother Bran like it’s no big deal informing Dany and her advisors that the new Three-Eyed Raven saw a vision of the Night King and his army on the move apparently by sending a flock of ravens across the Wall to spy on the White Walkers.
Obviously, Sansa must’ve sent a raven to keep Jon updated about the goings-on at Winterfell, but it’s still kind of nuts to see Jon mentioning his brother so casually when they’ve been separated for so many years.
The King in the North has some experience with warging thanks to his adventures with the wildlings, but we wonder if Dany’s crew will be so quick to believe the cryptic updates of a kid hundreds of miles away, or if she just thinks everyone in the North is kind of delusional.
We’ll find out when episode 5 of Game of Thrones Season 7 airs next Sunday.
