Cersei blames Tyrion for killing Myrcella and Tommen. Tyrion did not have, even remotely, any connection to their deaths: Myrcella was killed by the Sand Snakes and Ellaria as a payback for Oberyn's death; Tommen committed a suicide because Cersei murdered his wife and many more innocent people.

Petyr 'Littlefinger' Baelish: Sometimes when I try to understand a person'a motives, I play a little game. I assume the worst. What's the worst reason they could possibly have for saying what they say and doing what they do? Then I ask myself, 'How well does that reason explain what they say and what they do?'.

Absolutely incredible
27 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

I'm still shaking from how good this episode was. This is simply one of the best episodes this show has ever had. The tension and intensity starts at the beginning and never lets up. The scene in the dragon pit with all the main characters is executed extremely well. The acting, music, and cinematography is absolutely perfect. Littlefinger's death is shocking and awesome, and I never knew how much I wanted him dead until I saw Arya slit his throat. There's finally some redemption for Theon and for Sansa. Then we get to the climax where Cercei reveals that she staged the meeting and never intends to honor her commitment, and finally Jaimie decides he's had enough of her betrayals and leaves. These scenes with Jaimie and Cercei are very powerful, and watching him ride into the winter free from her control is awesome. Then Bran and Sam find out the truth about Jon's heritage: he is the son of Rhaegar and Lyanna, making him the true heir of the iron throne. This scene is done beautifully, with Bran witnessing Rhaegar and Lyanna's wedding while at the same time, Jon and Dany finally get together. And finally, we have the destruction of the wall by the Night King. The CGI of wight Viserion is breathtaking, and the final moments of the show where the dragon burns the wall are the perfect way to end an incredible season. If season 8 is as good as (or better than) season 7, Game of Thrones will go down as the best TV show ever. 10/10
