'Game of Thrones' Season 7, Episode 3: The Queen's Justice

In "The Queen's Justice", we finally see the Jon-Daenerys meeting that we'd anticipated for years.

Now, Olenna knows that Jamie Lannister isn't going to let her walk out of that room alive. Even when someone knocked on the door and Jaime told her that no one could see them in bed, she coolly replied "I'm the queen of the Seven Kingdoms". We witnessed a moment of vulnerability in her when she lamented Marcella's death, and in return, she wanted Ellaria to feel the same suffering.

It would take a whiteboard and a lot of time for these old friends to fully catch the other up on the past six seasons of adventures. Both were responsible for the death of Cersei's daughter, Myrcella, when they poisoned her leaving her to die in her father's arms. That's not to say she calmly accepted her fate; no, instead she chose to deliver some devastating news to her killer, Jaime Lannister, before she died from the effects of a painless poison.

But good ole Cersei wasn't done on the revenge train yet. First she lost Yara Greyjoy and Ellaria Sand (and the Sand Snakes), and now one of her wisest counselors is gone.

Grey Worm joins the power rankings this week because he survived when everyone thought he was a shoe-in to die. In addition to losing their Dornish allies with the capture of Ellaria Sand, Jaime and Cersei virtually emptied out the Lannister stronghold of Casterly Rock and marched their army straight to the Martell seat of Highgarden.

She sends the Unsullied into a risky situation, completely underestimating the Lannister's ability to strategize.

While Jon's objective for arriving was to seek out the Dragonglass found beneath Dragonstone, Daenerys wanted the newly crowned king to bend the knee to her. And the brother-sister, Cersei, and Jamie get to know about the exact person, Olenna who mercifully poisoned their son, Joffrey.

Cersei got a visit from Tycho Nestoris from the Iron Bank, and she wisely foreshadowed the attacks that Tyrion planned. She gave the last stab before drifting off to her death, leaving Jaime and eventually Cersei with the knowledge of knowing she went off easy after killing their first born (barf... incest with the Lannisters never gets less queasy). We'll miss you, Ellaria.

"I had an idea it was coming this season, sure", she explained. Yes, there was a death and it was brutal.
