In his review of the episode, Game of Thrones showrunner David Benioff spoke about that scene and said: "There's tension on two sides. We all know that Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) shows in his vision that Jon Snow is the son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen.
Any accusation of slow pacing was put to rest as the seventh season of Game of Thrones ended its fourth episode with one of its most memorably breath-taking battle scenes. Dany, who has opted to work from home today, is attempting to have a meeting with her advisors, only to be rudely interrupted by the sounds of Jon Snow and his Nights Watch day-laborers drilling into the island's core in search of dragon glass.
Later, Daenerys rides Drogon back to Dragonstone, where Jon Snow is waiting for her return.
On the flip side, there are two very strong arguments against Jon Snow bending the knee.
Though the movie has tons of old school battles to draw inspiration from, the showrunners took inspiration from Apocalypse Now when they had Daenerys driving in with her dragon. So the thought is that there's one more member of the family that could be Tyrion, whose mother died in childbirth - just like Jon's and Daenerys's - and who seemed to tame dragons pretty easily.
A marriage would also solve a lot of Daenerys and Jon's problems as rulers.
As for whether or not he's right, we'll probably find out in a few episodes one way or another. So what else will happen in Game of Thrones season 7, episode 5? We haven't seen Gendry (Joe Dempsie) since Game of thrones season 2 since sir Davos (Liam Cunningham) set him free from the prison. IT is possible that he was castle black as the night watcher. Further, Jaime is the one who killed the Mad King to protect those he loved in King's Landing. They are now on the road to becoming allies in war-with Daenerys offering up her dragon glass for Jon's defence against the Night King. I'm anxious to see this episode.
You know, I think Sansa's going to take Westeros.
