'Game of Thrones' battle even crazier from behind the scenes

Season 7, debuting this summer, might be one of the most action packed yet, but that doesn't mean the upcoming war will be as intense as other confrontations George R.R. Martin has littered the Westrosi past with.

Based on the novel of George R.R. Martin. the seventh season of Game of Thrones on July 16.

While you might say that you won't see Jon bending the knee, it is important to note that we heard a certain sentence in this scene before. The sequence depicted a battle of civilizations with the Roman-inspired Lannister army facing off against the Mongol Empire-inspired Dothraki - and with the high-fantasy X-factor of fire-breathing dragons thrown into the mix.

Sometimes Game of Thrones is useful beyond entertainment, and that day is today. Before hacking into the mountain of dragon glass, Jon brings Dany inside the cave to show her the ancient drawings of White Walkers and men made by the Children of the Forest. Bran gives Arya the Valyrian-steel dagger from Littlefinger, and this shocks Sansa. After all, Dany had simply been an extension of Viserys for her whole life, and he was giving that up. More importantly, however, when Theon tells Jon he came to ask the Queen for help, Jon pauses briefly to reply "The Queen is gone", his first referral to Dany as Queen to another Northerner. As Joanna Robinson pointed out over at Vanity Fair, Jaime still has too much to accomplish to die such an ignoble death. This could lead to a fight between the north and the south, perhaps Jon's handful men have little chances of standing against Daenerys and her dragons.

Which Tyrion thinks is a very bad idea. Everything hung on the line throughout, and we still don't know what will happen to Jaime. But, again, at the last second it seems that Bronn tackles Jaime out of the way and into a nearby lake. Littlefinger got a smackdown from the Three Eyed Raven, and Dany rode a dragon into the loot train battle a.k.a. the battle of lost horses.

MILLA JOVOVICH 'In Final Talks' For HELLBOY Reboot
Deadline reports that the actress is in final negotiations to join the franchise reboot as the film's villain, the Blood Queen. The upcoming Hellboy reboot, tentatively titled Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen , just got some major star power.

Hardhome. The Battle of the Bastards.

Or, it could be the numerous easter eggs and cameos that populated "The Spoils of War", which make each viewing of a Game of Thrones episode richer than the last.

We leave the episode with Jamie and Bronn sinking to the bottom of the river with their fates left up in the air. HBO, the producer and worldwide distributor of the series, is calling the sequence the Loot Train Attack.

OK, have you recovered from that episode yet? I still don't think the show has lived up to the standards it set in season 1 that had the most centralized narrative.
