Running for just 50 minutes, “The Spoils of War [VIDEO]” is the shortest episode in “Game of Thrones” history. Though 10 minutes shorter than an average episode, the episode was packed with action and great scenes [VIDEO]. The episode was watched by 10.167 million people when it was aired live. It broke the record of "Dragonstone" despite being leaked before its original air date.

Daenerys has had enough of smart plans and brought out Drogon and the Dothraki. But she’s still asking Jon to bend the knee, and she promised she would fight for him (and the North) if he does. Meanwhile, in Winterfell, Arya has finally returned home.

She was reunited with Sansa and Bran. The episode ended with a cliffhanger, Jaime was sinking to the bottom of the lake (because of his heavy Lannister armor).

Here are some iconic moments from “The #Spoils Of War.”

Bran and Littlefinger

Like what Meera Reed said, Bran died in the cave. Now, Bran is an emotionless-like-robot who creeps everyone out, especially Sansa. In “#The Spoils of War” however, his creepiness had finally paid off when he creeped out Littlefinger.

Littlefinger, another creepy man, known for being cunning, manipulative and he always maneuvers his way around powerful people. Bran, being the only living true-born male Stark, is rightfully the Lord of Winterfell. But he already told Sansa he couldn't be the Lord of anything because he is the Three-eyed Raven.

Littlefinger attempted to get on Bran’s good graces by giving a Valyrian Steel dagger.

The same dagger that was used by the catspaw assassin in his attempt to kill Bran. Littlfeginer continued talking. When he mentioned ‘chaos,' Bran cuts him off by saying “Chaos is a ladder.” Littlefinger was taken aback by what Bran said. It was a callback to his dialogue with Varys about the nature of power. Bran let Littlefinger know that he knows everything now, even his plans and motives.

The Scorpion

Bronn was commanded by Jaime to use ‘Qyburn’s anti-dragon giant ballista.’ Bronn had to survive some of a Dothraki blood rider's attacks before he reached the Scorpion. He quickly reloads the scorpion and fired it towards Drogon and Daenerys but missed.

He reloaded it again as Daenerys spotted him. Daenerys led Drogon straight towards Bronn, and he fired the shot which hit Dragon's right shoulder. Hurt, Drogon roasted the scorpion with dragon fire. Later at the end of the episode, Bronn tackled Jaime off of his horse and saved him from dragon fire.

Flee you, idiot

With Tyrion as Daenerys’ Hand of the Queen and Jaime at Cersei’s side, the two brothers are on the opposite sides of the war.

Tyrion, while standing on a nearby cliff, saw the Lannister men burn and die, and one can’t help to feel sympathy towards them. Tyrion saw Jaime, with horror on his face that he might lose his beloved brother.

When Drogon landed due to his wound, Tyrion whispered “Flee you idiot” - referring to how Jaime should leave the battle for safety. But Jaime took a spear and charged towards Daenerys. Drogon was about roast him with dragonfire, good thing Bronn saved him just in time. #Game of Thrones
