The latest Beautiful Death posters from season 7 of Game of Thrones capture Olena's last barb and the burning of the Lannisters. The past two episodes of Game of Thrones have featured two of the show's most talked-about moments thanks to the closing moments of each. 'The Queen's Justice' spent a lot of time setting up stories before the last scene delivered the ultimate set of last words courtesy of Olena Tyrell. Just as the Lannisters achieved one of their greatest victories, the Queen of Thorns managed to deliver them a nasty blow.
This past Sunday, things went even worse for the lions. 'The Spoils of War' spent time bringing Arya back to Winterfell and teasing further incest, but the big moment came during the series-defining battle of Daenerys, Drogon, and the Dothraki against the Lannisters and Tarlys. The results may have left the Dany's main dragon wounded, but her enemies have been utterly devastated. Now, a new set of posters illustrates the key moment from both episodes in stunning detail.
HBO have released the next two entries in their Beautiful Death series for Game of Thrones. Created by Robert Ball, each piece highlights a specific death and they've come with every episode of the show so far.
The first poster shows the death of a rose, but one that is strangling a Lannister hand as it fades to black. The second poster evokes the Targaryen words: Fire and Blood. In it, we see troops aflame including one with dragon details accenting his agony.
Just like the posters for the first two episodes of the season, these new entries in the series are wonderfully wrought takes on gruesome scenes. But as Game of Thrones has long trafficked in brutality and gore, they're a fitting way to pay tribute to each episode.
The consequences of the latest episode will also likely lead to future beautiful deaths. With Littlefinger's dagger in Arya's possession, a number of people could be in trouble. There's also the question of Bronn's loyalty, now that Tyrion is back in his periphery. Could the former sellsword betray his newest employer and help Dany to kill Jaime or Cersei?
Next week's episode will also take us to Eastwatch-by-the-Sea. While most of our time in the far North has been spent at Castle Black, Eastwatch will likely serve as the site of an epic battle between the Free Folk and the White Walkers. If it does, expect next week's poster to commemorate it.
Game of Thrones continues with “Eastwatch” on Sunday, August 13th.
