- ‘Game of Thrones': Yes, That Was Bronn With the Clutch Save
By Phil Hornshaw, provided by
- Monday Aug 7, 2017
The final moment of “Spoils of War” in particular is a bit confusing, thanks to one particularly fast-moving moment and a clutch save that comes with it.“Spoils of War” dedicates a huge part of the episode to a battle between the forces of the Lannisters and Queen Daenerys (Emilia Clarke), who shows up to attack the Lannister supply chain as it’s rolling into King’s Landing.Bronn even manages to score a hit on Drogon before the weapon is destroyed — before Drogon’s flames wreck the machine.With Drogon landing from the injury, Daenerys jumps off his back to pull out the huge crossbow bolt stuck in the dragon’s shoulder.Though you can’t see Bronn’s face as he knocks Jaime off his horse, between the setup for the moment beforehand and the lighter armor on the person who saves Jaime, we can tell that Bronn’s the guy who came to his rescue.Bronn was already the MVP of Episode 4 — now we know he’s becoming a becoming a better, more loyal friend, too.
