* [[spoiler:Lyanna ''defied Robert'', who was fighting against the Targaryens, to marry the man she loved. What woman in those times managed that? Even ''Cat and Ned'' had a betrothed marriage.]]

* Creator/DavidBradley's performance in the first episode of Season Seven as [[spoiler: Arya disguised as Walder Frey]] was so impressive that Benioff and Weiss decided that it had to be the cold opening for the entire season, rather than just being fit later into the episode as was originally planned. It's clear why. [[spoiler:The way he slowly changes his demeanor from that of Walder Frey to Arya Stark over the course of his monologue is stunning, and as he's watching the Freys die his expressions are so fitting for Arya that you'd swear that this seventy-five year-old man could easily be Maisie Williams' understudy.]]

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DASOhyN64pw Someone]] made a mashup of the ''Hardhome'' episode and Christopher Nolan's ''Film/{{Dunkirk}}'', due to the very similar situations and atmospheres between the episode and the film (stranded soldiers and civilians race agaisnt time to escape to sea before their enemies come and finish them all). The result is ''epic''.

** Jaime turning his back on Cersei is further awesome in that it finally allows Jaime to be a free man again. Jaime has known for a while that Cersei has lost it and wasn't being good to him. He couldn't leave, however, due to his one weakness: his love for her ("Why did the Gods make me love such a hateful woman?" and "We do not get to choose who we love"). Cersei exploited this weakness willingly, telling him not to betray her again and thinking she can make him stay by stating no one walks away from her. Jaime, disillusioned, simply states that he does not believe her as he walks away. Cersei doesn't order Gregor to kill Jaime as he does, since the latter knows Cersei has the same weakness as him. Seeing him use that against her, and freeing himself in the process is very satisfying.

** On the other hand, seeing her showing nothing more than being utterly unimpressed by the sight of dragons counts as a moment of awesome ''for'' Cersei.

** On the other hand, seeing her showing nothing more than being utterly unimpressed by the sight of dragons counts as a moment of awesome ''for'' Cersei. Notice that while everyone else at the scene were in awe when Daenerys arrives with her dragons, Cersei remained still at her seat just observing, not even flinching at the sight.



** The mere fact that the truce meeting scene has almost every remaining major players of Westeros ''together'' for the first time (only Littlefinger is absent). The tensions are through the roof as every faction, each of which has every reason to hate one another, arrives at the scene with their elite guards and trusted advisers and managed ''not to kill each other right'' then and there.

Daenerys herself even arrives with her dragons, which put everyone present in awe except Cersei, who just sits there on her chair without even flinching. And that's all before Sandor unleashes the wight.

* For anyone who's listened to the ''Literature/{{A Song Of Ice And Fire}}'' audiobooks, it's pretty darn cool to actually see Roy Dotrice as one of the hundreds of characters he created voices for.
