'Game Of Thrones' Season 7 Episode 4 Recap: Epic Battle & Overdue Family Reunion
The “Game of Thrones” Season 7 Episode 4 that aired on Sunday ended a rather controversial week after the episode was leaked online before it’s official air date. Loyal fans who waited patiently and did not give-in to watching the leaked copy were rewarded with a visual feast. A major part of the episode titled “The Spoils of War” featured various alliances and tense reunions.
Jon Snow, the newly proclaimed King of the North, was seen working on his alliance with Daenerys in order to prevent the White Walkers and the army of the dead from invading the Realm. He was in Dragonstone and was working to obtain the mining rights for the Dragonglass.
Meanwhile, Daenerys tried hard to convince Jon Snow to put his pride aside as a condition to having an alliance with him. This would put Jon Snow in a big dilemma since if he gives in, he may lose the respect of his people from the North. However, if he does not, the Realm will e left with no chance against the invaders.
Jon Snow’s decision on the matter was not revealed in the latest “Game of Thrones” Season 7 episode. The decision and his somewhat fragile alliance with Daenerys will have a huge impact on the fate of the entire Westeros. Meanwhile, Cersei Lannister is trying to form her own alliance with the Iron Bank of Braavos.
