The Dragon and the Wolf - Game of Thrones: Season 7, Episode 7 - Rotten Tomatoes

The Dragon and the Wolf


Critic Score

Critic Consensus: While much slower in pace than the season that preceded it, "The Dragon and the Wolf" delivered satisfying conclusions to several story arcs, and masterfully set up the series' final season.

Episode Info

In the Season 7 finale, Jon, Daenerys and their allies have a tense meeting in King's Landing with Cersei, who is horrified by the evidence they brought from beyond the Wall, but isn't quite ready to commit to their cause.

Critic reviews for The Dragon and the Wolf

The north is exposed and everyone is doomed. Bollocks. I don't know about you, but I need a drink. Skoll!

The Age (Australia)

Despite some intense moments when a wight is let loose and stops inches away from Cersei, the scene as a whole plays as too stiff and practiced.

Consequence of Sound

The whole episode was full of subtle detail, poisonous barbs, and unexpected cutting humour, even from the Stark children - Arya, Sansa, and Bran the Three-Eyed Raven.

Daily Mail (UK)

The Dragon and the Wolf had plenty of great scenes sprinkled throughout, but considering we were spared a leak, it sure felt like we all knew exactly what would happen anyway.

October 16, 2017 | Full Review…

More than any other season, this year of Game of Thrones has felt like a tightly plotted piece of fiction.

The Long Night will be upon them; meanwhile, let's hope we make it through ours.
