Of Spoilers and Leaks - Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode Two

Episode 2 down. Time to check the spoilers and leaks I've read about and posted last February.

Arya is reunited with her direwolf, Nymeria, which she left in season one.
No surprise here. A glimpse was shown at this episode's trailer. I loved it when Arya tried hard to convince her direwolf to return to Winterfell with her, only to be left heartbroken. Arya quickly realises that "That is not you.", the same response ("That is not me.") she gave her father way back in Season 1 when he told her that one day she will be a lady and marry. I hope that this would not be the last time we will be seeing Nymeria though.

 The Lannisters have special anti-dragon artillery, which is designed by Qyburn.
A very large and intimidating crossbow at that. Looks like Qyburn did his homework on Westorosi history. Meraxes, a dragon ridden by Rhaenys Targaryen, one of the trio who conquered Westeros, went down after being hit straight in the eye with a scorpion bolt fired by Dornish troops. Let's wait and see.
Euron Greyjoy finds and destroys Yara’s fleet and takes her as a prison but Theon manages to escape. Euron takes Ellaria and kills off two of the Sand Snakes.
The episode's ending scene. Everything was so fast paced I barely felt the death of two of the three Sand Snakes, Obara and Nymeria Sand. Well, everyone who have read the books hate how the TV show did the Dorne plot and were very relieved seeing them go. Since I have not read the books yet, I kinda like the sand snakes, especially their mother Ellaria Sand. Her reaction when Oberyn was killed by the mountain and how she killed Doran were one of my favorites scenes of the series.

Episode Three on Monday!
