I felt this episode was mostly stage-dressing for the remainder of the season — until Samwell Tarly’s scene. From the look he gave Dany to his line to Jon Snow — “You gave up the crown for your people, would she do the same?” Dany’s questionable morals have always been a part of her character’s evolution...but Samwell really showed how scary she can actually be. One of the longest-running rumors is that Jaime will kill Cersei to prevent her from doing something horrible...but, what if it’s actually (gulp) Jon who does Dany in? Oh, Sam.
