Game of Thrones 7×02 ‘Stormborn’ had a huge naval battle, a crazy villain, an old friend returning and some more gross-out moments from the Citadel. 

This week’s episode of Game of Thrones titled ‘Stormborn’ was an immensely satisfying episode that picked up right where the action left off from last week – we have Dany planning the beginning of her siege of the seven kingdoms, Sam continuing to sneak around behind Archmaester Ebrose is back performing yet another stomach-turning task, Ayra running into an old friend and Euron Greyjoy burning the house down (or should we say ships) with the season’s first big battle.

We are breaking down this week’s top WTF moments from ‘Stormborn’, check out the first one below:

Considering most of Westeros knows about Dany’s dragons at this point, it’s no surprise that Qyburn, always one step ahead, had an idea brewing to take down Queen Cersei’s big fire-breathing problem.

The scene starts with Qyburn bringing Cersei down into the crypts of King’s Landing, a place where she comments that she has never been to before, but her late husband Robert had to admire the dragon skulls he kept as prizes.

The mad scientist then introduces Cersei to the biggest skull of them all – the head of Balerion, King Aegon’s largest and most fierce dragon. He then unveils his latest weapon for Cersei to use against her enemies – a giant crossbow that, as Cersei demonstrates, can easily pierce the skull of a dragon.

We have a bad feeling about this, very bad indeed. With a weapon like this, there’s a high chance one of Dany’s dragons will not make it to season eight.
