‘Game of Thrones’ Season 7 Finale Recap

WARNING: We’re about to recap the most shocking moments from Game of Thrones’ season seven finale! If you do not want to know what happened, fly away on the nearest dragon — but stay far away from Eastwatch!

(ET ONLINE) – “We’re f**ked.” Those two blunt, yet accurate words from Tyrion Lannister perfectly summed up the events from Sunday night’s season seven finale of Game of Thrones. From a wildly satisfying murder, to the reveal of Jon Snow’s true identity, and a chilling (yet fiery!) final scene, here are the biggest take-aways from the episode.

The Double-Crossing Queen:

It was one big unhappy Lannister reunion in King’s Landing as Tyrion arrived with Daenerys, Jon Snow and the rest of his dragon queen’s posse to try and convince Cersei to join the fight against The Night King. Although Cersei eventually agreed to send her army north to fight the army of the undead, it seems that our Queen of the Iron Throne was crossing her fingers behind her back. Cersei confessed to Jamie that she and Euron Greyjoy secretly conspired together and she actually has no intentions of helping Dany and Jon fight the good fight. On top of all that, it seems that Cersei has finally gone too far with her betrayals and her brother/lover Jamie finally turned his back on her.



Ding Dong the Prick Is Dead:

Thank the old gods and the new! Littlefinger — Petyr Baelish, the biggest s**t-stirrer in The North — has finally been silenced. It appeared that Sansa had officially turned on Ayra and was holding a trial for her little sister’s biggest crimes, but the tables quickly turned. Thanks to Bran’s three-eyed raven skills, Sansa was finally able to see Littlefinger as the manipulative cockroach he really is and she sentenced him to death. Arya happily acted as the executioner and she slit Littlefinger’s throat with his own catspaw dagger. What a fitting end for the series’ most frustrating character.



Introducing the True Heir to the Iron Throne…

Ladies, gentlemen and dragons! We’d like to officially introduce you to Aegon Targaryen, formerly known as Jon Snow. That’s right! As Jon and Dany were finally taking the next step in their heated connection, Bran Stark and Samwell Tarley were putting together the pieces of Jon’s true heritage and discovering that his true name comes with great responsibility. “He’s never been a bastard. He’s the heir to the throne. He needs to know.” Bran said. Hmm… we wonder what Dany will think once she discovers that her new boyfriend is actually her nephew and the true heir to the throne she’s worked so hard to take.



Ice Dragon Attacks!

In the final minutes of Sunday night’s finale, Tormund and the rest of the Eastwatch-based Wildlings watched in horror as the army of the dead approached the base of the wall. The Night King then flew towards the wall on the back of a very zombiefied Viserion and the undead dragon unleashed a fury of bright blue flames on the wide barrier of ice. Thanks to Viserion’s flames, The Wall quickly crumbled and the hundreds of thousands of wigths entered Westeros. To make matters even worse, we’re not sure if Tormund and the rest of the brave men survived.

Mother of Charlottesville Victim Heather Heyer Gives VMA Tribute

By Hayden Wright Two weeks ago, Heather Heyer was killed in the racial protests that engulfed Charlottesville when a man drove his car into a crowd of demonstrators. Heyer’s mother, Susan Bro, appeared at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards to pay tribute to her daughter and recognize the nominees for Best Fight Against the System. Bro also announced the creation of the Heather Heyer Foundation, a social justice organization founded in her daughter’s memory.

“Only 15 days ago, my daughter Heather was killed protesting racism,” Bro said. “I miss her, but I know she’s here tonight. I have been deeply moved to see people across the world find inspiration in her courage.”

Related: Blake Shelton Moved by Mother of Murdered Charlottesville Victim Bro called members of the audience (at Inglewood’s The Forum arena and at home) to join the fight against oppression and for social justice.

“I want people to know that Heather never marched alone,” Bro said. “She was always joined by people of every race and every background across this country.”

Bro was introduced by Rev. Robert Wright Lee IV, a nephew several generations removed from Confederate leader Robert E. Lee. Statues of the rebel general fueled tensions in Charlottesville and elsewhere—and sparked an escalating debate about equality and the legacy of slavery. The pastor called racism “America’s original sin” and urged viewers to vocally reject white supremacy.

“We can find inspiration in the Black Lives Matter movement, the women who marched in January and especially Heather Heyer, who died fighting for her beliefs in Charlottesville,” he said.

Each nominee in the Best Fight Against the System category was declared a winner for shedding light on the many causes and battle fronts where light must be shone.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Local musicians jammed out Sunday to celebrate accomplishments in the fight against homelessness. The nonprofit ABQ Heading Home and its partners hosted a benefit concert at the Albuquerque Museum.

The group presented Mayor Berry with a humanitarian award for his role in tackling homelessness in Albuquerque.

Divers Find Remains Of All Missing From USS McCain Collision

SINGAPORE (AP) — Divers have recovered the remains of all 10 sailors who went missing after the USS John S. McCain and an oil tanker collided near Singapore last week, the U.S. Navy said Monday. Navy and Marine Corps divers had been searching in flooded compartments of the destroyer for days after the damaged ship docked in Singapore. The cause of the Aug. 21 collision is under investigation. The crash ripped a gash in the McCain’s hull, flooding crew berths and machinery and communications rooms. The commander of the Navy’s Japan-based 7th Fleet was fired last week after a series of accidents this year raised questions about its operations. The firing of Vice Adm. Joseph Aucoin, a three-star admiral, was a rare dismissal of a high-ranking officer for operational reasons. The Navy also ordered an operational pause for its fleets worldwide to make sure all steps are being taken to ensure safe and effective operations. The Pacific Fleet will also carry out a ship-by-ship review of its vessels, looking at navigation, mechanical systems, bridge resource management, and training. The victims ranged in age from 20 to 39 years old and came from eight U.S. states: — Charles Nathan Findley, 31, Electronics Technician 1st Class, from Amazonia, Missouri — Abraham Lopez, 39, Interior Communications Electrician 1st Class, from El Paso, Texas — Kevin Sayer Bushell, 26, Electronics Technician 2nd Class, from Gaithersburg, Maryland — Jacob Daniel Drake, 21, Electronics Technician 2nd Class, from Cable, Ohio — Timothy Thomas Eckels Jr., 23, Information Systems Technician 2nd Class, from Manchester, Maryland — Corey George Ingram, 28, Information Systems Technician 2nd Class, from Poughkeepsie, New York — Dustin Louis Doyon, 26, Electronics Technician 3rd Class, from Suffield, Connecticut — John Henry Hoagland III, 20, Electronics Technician 3rd Class, from Killeen, Texas — Logan Stephen Palmer, 23, Interior Communications Electrician 3rd Class, from Decatur, Illinois — Kenneth Aaron Smith, 22, Electronics Technician 3rd Class, from Cherry Hill, New Jersey
