The fun started early in Game of Thrones season 7. Before the opening title sequence even rolled, a whole family was wiped off the map. And maps were on everyone's mind, as the remaining characters took a long look at the enemies surrounding them – and the possible allies that could protect them, or stab them in the back.

Read the full recap of "Dragonstone" by James Hibberd, our man in Westeros, and then listen to the newest episode of EW's Game of Thrones Weekly podcast (posted below), our Monday morning examination of all the latest big moves in the land of the Seven Kingdoms. (Three Kingdoms?) (Are the Greyjoys a kingdom, or an armada?) (Both!) Topics discussed include: The reboot of Euron, the conversion of the Hound, and the possibility that Arya was Lady Stoneheart all along. <iframe src="" scrolling="no" width="100%" height="460" frameborder="0" class="" allowfullscreen="" resize="0" replace_attributes="1" name=""></iframe>ßN½wï_מ|۝ٶ¼÷Wzk¦õõíÜs¿|
