Game of Thrones, episode 7 review -The Dragon and the Wolf: betrayal, nudity, and game-changing twists

A fully operational Ice Dragon, Littlefinger bloodily hoisted on the sharp end of his own machinations, a hastily-undressed Jon and Daenerys rocking the boat… The longest Game Of Thrones episode yet was also among the most breathtaking and incident-packed.

At the end of a spectacular yet uneven season, The Dragon and the Wolf was also a stirring return to Westeros’ first principles as the Hollywood bombast of recent weeks was replaced by a solid 80 minutes of betrayal, nudity and skulduggery in dimly-lit rooms. Not that it had ever truly been away but it was good to welcome the old, happy-stabby Game of Thrones back with a vengeful gleam in its eyes.
