Game Of Thrones Season 7 Episode 3 Recap: The Queen's Justice

The Mother of Recaps is back for another week. And with an episode title like that, we know it's going to be juicy. Maybe even literally. Who knows what Cersei is capable of at this stage?

This week’s episode opened, like all of them, in Dragonstone. Predictably a lot of fans were pretty excited about Daenerys and Jon Snow finally meeting, but more people were caught up on the way they were introduced…

Others were mad at Daenerys for being so stubborn about the fate of the continent she wants to rule.

But did anyone else find that scene just a little… boring?

Down in King’s Landing, Cersei is playing the Mad Queen in the best possible way. You can’t help but cheer for her even if you hate her guts.

Back to Dragonstone, Jon plans his future career as a miner.

Meanwhile, we’re still wondering… where’s this guy at?

Back at Winterfell, we get another character meeting (well, reunion) that’s been anticipated for a long time. Turns out it’s just as underwhelming as the Jon and Dany one.

But honestly we’re all just waiting for this guy to get out of the way.

Over in the Citadel luckily Sam is finally done with grossing us out. This time he’s just teaching people that reading the instructions is how to get things done.

Jorah, after sleeping off his terminal case of greyscale, is ready to go back to his Khaleesi.

A lot of the scenes in this episode had people a little confused, but none more than the ambitious attack on Casterly Rock. With Grey Worm and Euron making it all the way to the other side of Westeros, and Arya not even reaching Winterfell yet, a lot of fans are bewildered by the pacing of this season.

Others were disappointed by the scale of the battle itself…

Or just by the scale of the castle.

But this is quickly forgotten in the face of Olenna Tyrell exiting the series in style.

Seriously, we didn’t see her die on screen so this can still definitely happen.

  • Feels a bit like this season has no plot. It mostly, this person goes here, thing happens. That person goes there, thing happens.

    Could just be the fact that books handle sprawling stories better.

  • If the acting of Emilia Clarke and Kit Harrington was any more wooden in their scenes together I’d have to check my TV for termites.

      • Oh sorry I won’t bad mouth the “dull white knight awkwardly placed in the shades of grey story who ocassionally is a little interesting but completely outshone by well developed, complex figures” boy. 😉

  • Furk I sympathised with Cersei for a second and Jaime is nowhere near as cool as in the book.

    Really hoping Daenerys dies, she is just a horrible leader.

    • >Really hoping Daenerys dies, she is just a horrible leader.

      But then we won’t have the fun of Daenerys living to become the new mad queen.

  • Daenerys is just a bit snarky cos she cant go for another boring walk in a desert this season.
