Did You Know?


The episode title refers to the dragon sigil of House Targaryen and the wolf sigil of House Stark, as well as Daenerys (the dragon) and Jon (a Stark wolf). This is the fifth episode to draw its title from the sigils of houses, after Game of Thrones: The Wolf and the Lion (2011) (Stark, Lannister), Game of Thrones: The Lion and the Rose (2014) (Lannister, Tyrell), Game of Thrones: Mockingbird (2014) (Baelish).

Tyrion tells Jon there are one million people in King's Landing. In Game of Thrones: The Bear and the Maiden Fair, Jaime said the city had a population of approximately half a million people. However, population could grow over the years, especially if refugees came to capital to escape the war. See more »


Tyrion Lannister: We are a group of people who do not like one another, as this recent demonstration has shown. We have suffered at each other's hands. We have lost people we love at each other's hands. If all we wanted was more of the same, there would be no need for this gathering. We are entirely capable of waging war against each other without meeting face-to-face.
Cersei Lannister: So instead, we should settle our differences and live together in harmony for the rest of our days?

Jon Snow's Lineage
2 September 2017 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In King's Landing, Daenerys, Jon Snow and Cersei have a tense meeting where they show a wight to Cersei that does not accept the proposed armistice. However, Tyrion has a private encounter with her and she changes her position. At Winterfell, Sansa brings Arya to accomplish a death penalty for murder and treason. Then Samwell has a meeting with Bran and they discuss Jon Snow's lineage. At Eastwatch, the Night King riding his dragon and the White Walker army attack the Wall.

"The Dragon and he Wolf" is another excellent episode of the Seventh Season of "Game of Thrones". The only remark is the discussion of on Jon Snow's lineage that deserved to be longer and better explained. But every segment is great and shows surprises, like Cersei and Sansa's decisions. My vote is ten.

Title (Brazil): "The Dragon and the Wolf"
