'Game of Thrones' season 7 episode 5: Jon Snow's the only hero

In a new behind the scenes featurette from Sunday's episode, the cast and creators of HBO's Game of Thrones reveal what went into making a record-breaking battle scene. There are four very different possible outcomes.

But the proposed cringe romance didn't stop there, with another certain beloved character helping to form a love triangle. He will ask his brother to talk to Cersei to surrender to Daenerys Targaryen, but Jaime will not agree. At some point is she going to lose interest in a guy who can't deliver what she needs? It's so good, you'll want to rewatch it only to get goosebumps again. Bran's longtime guardian Meera, too, only appeared briefly (though there are some hints she may return in the coming weeks).

Likelihood: Medium-low. But it's fun to think of the great dialogue that could be written for sparring matches between Jaime and the Hound. The stakes have never been higher, as our favorites are on both sides of the war now, so it's safe to say that you should probably have a stockpile of paper bags to breathe into for the weeks to come. But Tyrion does care about Jaime. She took matters into her own hands and took Drogon and the Dothraki and attacked Jaime and his army. The two always had an intriguingly complicated relationship, and it couldn't be more dramatic than at this moment when they're working for rival queens.

This would also put Cersei at a crossroads. In the big picture, we're rooting for Daenerys to overthrow Cersei, but "The Spoils of War" pitted Dany against the most sympathetic members of the royal administration: Jaime, the only member of Cersei's inner circle with a conscience; Bronn, a fan favorite and audience surrogate; and Dickon Tarly, who got a few quiet moments to show that even though he's his awful father's favorite son, he's not a complete, well, you know. So what would that mean for Jaime?

In "The Spoils Of War" it's made clear that Missandei is in love with him, illustrated by her brief exchange with Dany at the beginning of the episode. Do you think the Night's King will get himself an ice dragon? The most popular fan theories suggest that Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) might betray her for the sake of his love for his brother, or that Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel) might betray her to save Grey Worm (Jacob Anderson).
