Another week, another tweetstorm, and it’s time to see what the Internet thinks about the latest episode of Game of Thrones. Jump on in to go once more through the emotional roller coaster of Game of Thrones season 7, episode 3: The Queen’s Justice.
The Mother of Recaps is back for another week. And with an episode title like that, we know it's going to be juicy. Maybe even literally. Who knows what Cersei is capable of at this stage?Read more
This week’s episode opened, like all of them, in Dragonstone. Predictably a lot of fans were pretty excited about Daenerys and Jon Snow finally meeting, but more people were caught up on the way they were introduced…
Missandei: You stand in the presence of Daenerys Stormborn…
Ser Davos: Dis jon snow…

Others were mad at Daenerys for being so stubborn about the fate of the continent she wants to rule.
Like…..folks believe in dragons, but the army of the dead is too much? Y'all fuckin annoying. #GoTS7

But did anyone else find that scene just a little… boring?
Dany meeting Jon Snow for the first time just feels like the most boring Facebook argument ever.

Down in King’s Landing, Cersei is playing the Mad Queen in the best possible way. You can’t help but cheer for her even if you hate her guts.
Cersei made a compelling scene involving Ellaria Sand and the remaining Sand Snake. That's how good her character is. #GameOfThrones

CERSEI IS NOT A LIKABLE CHARACTER
that being, i found so much enjoyment watching her get revenge on Ellaria Sand ??? #GameofThrones

Meanwhile, we’re still wondering… where’s this guy at?

Back at Winterfell, we get another character meeting (well, reunion) that’s been anticipated for a long time. Turns out it’s just as underwhelming as the Jon and Dany one.

Over in the Citadel luckily Sam is finally done with grossing us out. This time he’s just teaching people that reading the instructions is how to get things done.

Jorah, after sleeping off his terminal case of greyscale, is ready to go back to his Khaleesi.
Archmaester: Ser Jorah how did you get rid of that Chlamydia?

A lot of the scenes in this episode had people a little confused, but none more than the ambitious attack on Casterly Rock. With Grey Worm and Euron making it all the way to the other side of Westeros, and Arya not even reaching Winterfell yet, a lot of fans are bewildered by the pacing of this season.

Others were disappointed by the scale of the battle itself…
I feel like in any other season, the Casterly Rock sequence would've been 6+ minutes long. We just got a glorified montage #GameOfThrones

Or just by the scale of the castle.

But this is quickly forgotten in the face of Olenna Tyrell exiting the series in style.

Seriously, we didn’t see her die on screen so this can still definitely happen.
