Regardless of opinion, The Queen's Justice will be remembered as a key episode in the show's run, for one reason: the first meeting of Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow.
This is the biggest character union on the series, the one that has been six years (or 20+, in book terms) in the making; a meeting of Ice and Fire. It's not clear exactly how things will play out between the two in the future, but this is where it will be traced back to.
Also, the fact it occurs just as we're approaching the midway point of the penultimate season is one of the clearest indicators yet we're really approaching the endgame now.
It wasn't all about the Targaryens though. As the episode title - and trailer - suggested, there was a lot of Cersei here too, as the increasingly mad Queen received her gifts from Euron Greyjoy.
Elsewhere, we once more caught up with Sam and Joran's attempt to cure greyscale, Sansa ruled the North, and a battle was waged at Casterly Rock.
Written by David Benioff and Dan Weiss, directed once more by Mark Mylod (who also helmed last week's instalment), it was easily the best episode of Season 7 thus far, albeit not one without some issues.
NCTJ-qualified journalist. Most definitely not a racing driver. Drink too much tea; eat too much peanut butter; watch too much TV. Sadly only the latter paying off so far.
A mix of wise-old man in a young man's body with a child-like wonder about him and a great otherworldly sensibility.
