All the details behind that ‘Game of Thrones’ insane dragon assault in ‘The Loot Train Attack’

Do not mess with her dragons. After waiting seven seasons to introduce Daenerys Targaryen’s (Emilia Clarke) dragons to Westeros, Sunday night’s “Game of Thrones” finally unleashed the fiery fury on everyone’s favorite gold-handed Lannister in “The Loot Train Attack.” A battle so big and so hot it may have topped last season’s epic “Battle of the Bastards.” And that’s with just one dragon — Dany’s got two more waiting in the wings.

Warning: spoilers ahead.

The fourth episode of the seventh season of “Game of Thrones” (officially titled “The Spoils of War”) unleashed two of Daenerys’ biggest assets: her dragons and the Dothraki army. And if you remember the words of late King Robert Baratheon, “Only a fool would meet the Dothraki in an open field.”

Confirmed: Dany and Jon Snow are starting to fall for each other

And something totally unrelated to the battle (but equally interesting) was the very-much-related twosome of Daenerys and Jon Snow (Kit Harington) clearly starting to get sweet on each other. So if you’ve been awkwardly shipping this in-family connection, you’re not alone. The showrunners have been fueling this flirtation the whole time, and they finally admitted it.

In a separate “after the episode” breakdown, Benioff confirmed the crush. “To make it all even more complicated, they’re starting to be attracted to each other,” he said. “So much of it is not from dialogue or anything we wrote, it’s just the two of them in a small space, standing near each other, and us just watching that and feeling the heat of that.”

So yes, their love is real. But it’s not at Luke and Leia levels of awkwardness yet.
