Jaime Lannister on Game of Thrones

Jon isn't anywhere to be seen in the teaser for next week, even though he'll obviously be around for the series finale. Can that element continue or is there more dragon, war, fighting action to be had? Varys burns the letter he wrote and prepares for he knows is ahead.

Robert McLachlan, a cinematographer who worked on eight "Game of Thrones" episodes, told INSIDER that the show is dark because they want to keep the show as "naturalistic" as possible.

"According to the closed captioning, "♪ (TENSE MUSIC PLAYS) ♪" Then we get the "Next on Game of Thrones" screen, accompanied by "♪ (CLOCK TICKING) ♪". Let us know in the comments.

Other than that, I thought the choreography of the battle itself and the directing was pretty strong, and in the moments when I put my incredible disdain for the outrageous and unforgivable violation of the character of Daenerys Targaryen aside, I was fairly riveted.

When the brother and sister fled to the crypts of King's Landing, they discovered that their final escape route has been blocked by the rubble caused by Daenerys and her dragon.

At the end of the episode, the walls of King's Landing collapsed and appeared to take the lives of Jamie and Cersei together.

It wasn't the King's Landing we've seen though, it was a barren wasteland covered in snow.

Now we get to the good stuff. Many members of the show's cast have improved over the years, but Headey has been winning raves from critics from the very start - since the early episodes of season 1 Headey has perfectly delivered Cersei's uniquely toxic mix of pride, vindictiveness, impatience, cunning, and spite. Homes burned. Soldiers and innocents were skewered by spears or simply burst into flame. It's the most authentic connection she's ever had. Eventually she found a white horse and rode it to safety. There is something odd in the way her stoic, reasonable nature evacuates when Jaime makes it clear he's leaving her.

Daenerys understands she needs advisors to guide her in building a strong following, but she doesn't trust them blindly and insists that they be honest with her.

One thing is certain and that is how this show has bounced from one improbable character convo to another. Yes, Cersei had three children - Joffrey, Tommen and Myrcella - and all have died, so that's another checkmark in Maggy's favor. Considering the risk Tyrion is taking here to save his brother for yet another time it's hard to believe he'd do it again. He has betrayed Daenerys for what he thinks is best for the realm. That was just the beginning of Dany going full Mad Queen. However, Tyrian Lannister freed asking him to ring the bell after reaching the Kings Landing, which will be seen as an indication Cersei has surrendered and army and thousands of people will be saved but what happens next is the complete opposite.
