707 The Wolf And The Dragon: Jon And Dany's Love Boat

Let's be real: The true hero of this episode was that shot of Jon Snow's butt. A lot of action went down in this season finale and not all of it involved those buns. The zombie summit went off the rails a little bit, Sansa dispenses some sweet justice, Theon discovers his super power, and the Night King has a 'Mr. Gorbachev' moment. Nerdette's Greta Johnsen and Tricia Bobeda review all of that and more with Wait Wait ... Don't Tell Me!'s Peter Sagal

706 Beyond The Wall: On Frozen Lake Whoopsie

As expected, Jon Snow's Mission: Impossible turns into Mission: D'oh, Dany weighs in on her nickname, Arya tries to knock Bran down as the Stark family creep, and the Night King gets a new pet. Nerdette's Greta Johnsen and Tricia Bobeda team up with Wait Wait ... Don't Tell Me host Peter Sagal to recap all of that in more in this week's podcast.

705 Eastwatch: Jon Snow Adds 'Zombie Hunter' To His Resume

Family barbecues take on a new meaning in this week's Game of Thrones, and it may have some major consequences for Dany. In this week's recap, Greta Johnsen, Tricia Bobeda, and Peter Sagal chew the fat over the fate of the Tarly family, Cersei's big surprise for Jamie, Samwell's late-night library raid, Jon Snow adding "zombie hunter" to his resume, and the return of another lovable bastard. They also answer listener questions and offer their predictions about what might happen in the last two (welp) episodes on this mini-season.

704 The Spoils Of War: Dany Gets Her Heavy Metal Moment

The only thing that could have made the final scene of this week's Game of Thrones better is if Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song" started playing (but covered by Ed Sheeran). In episode four's "The Spoils of War," we get one of the baddest, most heavy metal scenes with Dany charging into Jaime's army while riding on top of one of her dragons. So for this week's recap, we asked Tricia, Greta, and Peter what song they'd listen to while riding a dragon into battle. The trio also weighs in on Bran's peak awkwardness, Jon Snow's walking tour of the caves of Dragonstone, Arya's return to Winterfell, and how exactly Dany and her army got to mainland Westeros so quickly.

If there's one thing to learn about staying alive in Westeros, it's never go to a party, ever. Tricia, Greta and Peter toast off the Season 7 premiere, giving their takeaways of bad boy pirate Euron, the Frey dinner party and Sam's library chores. They also share what they see when they look deeply into a fire.
