The epic Game of Thrones Season 7 finale titled The Dragon and the Wolf, aired on Sunday night, August 27. In the 80-minute-long episode had jealousy, romance, death and some twisted wickedness. The big upswing culminated with the confirmation all the fans were waiting for – the legitimacy of Jon’s heritage.
As things unfolded in the last episode of the seventh season of probably the most watched series of the moment, viewers saw how Jon was confirmed to be Aegon Targaryen, the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark and the rightful heir to the Iron Throne.
Bran Stark used his raven power to learn about this in a vision of his aunt, Lyanna telling his father Ned, of her son’s true identity.
The piece of info, anticipated by the viewers for a while now, will come as a surprise to Jon, who was busy romancing Daenerys during this time. However, he would not find this out during the Game of Thrones Season 7 finale.
This makes Daenerys Jon’s aunt. “He needs to know”, concluded Bran Stark. It will be interesting to see how he and Daenerys will react when they find out Jon is more entitled to the throne than she is. Bran and Sam will be the ones bringing the news to them.
Sisters Sansa and Arya offered a twist few were expecting. In the company of Bran, Sansa calls Arya to he big hall for the murder and treason charges dispute, which turns into a trap for the slimy Littlefinger. As he begs for his life following this twister turn of events, Arya cuts his throat. Oh, sweet revenge!
Ultimate villain Cersei made her moves in the last episode, too. Deflective, Cersei let Tyrion believe she would join the battle against the White Walkers, when, in fact, her plan was to keep away and take on their weakened forces if they were to come out victorious.
The Game of Thrones Season 7 finale ended with the wall tumbling down, in a visually dazzling momentum.
