HBO Home Entertainment brings the epic medieval supernatural/fantasy drama, Game of Thrones Season 7, straight onto DVD and Blu-Ray. Relive our favorite episode based on the popular novels by author George R.R. Martin with some must-see bonus content.
During the seventh season, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) has finally set sail for Westeros with her Dothraki army and dragons. Not only has Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) earned the title of Hand of the Queen, Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) has been named King of the North. While Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) holds the throne in King’s Landing, an army of White Walkers march towards the Wall.
[Spoilers Ahead] Check out our 5 reasons to get Game of Thrones: The Complete Seventh Season on DVD and Blu-Ray:
5) Arya Vs. Brienne
Maisie Williams and Gwendoline Christie just killed it as Arya Stark and Brienne of Tarth sparred in battle. Arya showed off some of her own sweet moves as Brienne used brute force against her. They were evenly matched, but poor Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) felt left out as she watched them fight.
4) Zombie Dragon!
In Episode 6, entitled Beyond the Wall, Jon Snow (Harrington) led his Suicide Squad in a desperate attempt to find real evidence of a White Walker. Tormund (Kristofer Hivju) revealed his true love for Brienne before going into battle. People of different races, different backgrounds were pulled together to take a common enemy…zombies!
3)The Spoils of War
This one is quite possibly the best episode of the seventh season! At the Blackwater Rush, Jamie Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) feels the full wrath of Daenerys’ dragons. Bronn (Jerome Flynn) loads up the anti-dragon scorpion but the wound has no effect on the flying monster. Jamie Lannister may have killed the Mad King but he was no match for Daenerys.
2) That Twist!
Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) have such affection for each other when they give each other such longing glances. But their relationship is much more seeded in family. Yet I’m okay with that, should I be though?
