Alternatively, Euron could simply have been watching Dragonstone for naval movements, knowing that Daenerys had arrived. But owing to her gender, the North overlooked her and instead anointed Jon as their new King. Plus, now that he has gotten word from Samwell Tarly, he also knows Daenerys' home, Dragonstone, sits on top of a rich source of dragonglass which can be used to defeat the white walkers.
While Daenerys seems to inherently know she can't trust Varys, she's keenly aware of his singular talents and perspective. Here is what the official synopsis says about the upcoming episode. Jon faces a revolt. Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) plans the conquest of Westeros. While this is going on, the Unsullied will sneak in and take the Lannister stronghold, Casterley Rock. Will Dany and Jon Snow finally unite?

But, it wasn't clear if a full-scale revolt is developing. And, speaking of communication, Littlefinger really played his hand this week, and I'm surprised that Jon didn't choke him to death and leave him in the crypts of Winterfell. It can be clearly seen in the trailer.
There are only five episodes left in Game of Thrones season 7 after Sunday night's airing of "Stormborn". Normally there's a lot of CG [when filming action scenes] and you watch it on screen and you see a massive epic battle, but when you're filming it's all quite tame by comparison. She has been off in the wilderness, learning how to kill, but she still remembers who she is deep down, and is heading towards what will turn out to be her sister's arms. We got even more tension between Jon and Sansa this week, and continued to raise a similar question: if Jon doesn't want Sansa to disagree in front of the lords, why doesn't he talk to her first?
Those less than impressed with the Dornish daughters have two less to worry about as Euron throttles Nymeria with her own whip and hangs her from the prow of Yara's ship, where he also impales Obara. The Daenerys and Varys conversation is a flawless example of everything that showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have worked on since 2011, coming together in near-perfect fashion. Mark Mylod will support him and he replaces Jeremy Podeswa who worked for the premiere. If you look closely, you can spot the banners of House Tyrell and House Martell among them, which indicated that the fleet was much closer to Westeros than Essos, as it'd have been stupid for the two great houses to sail to Essos to only sail right back. Daenerys has become more skeptical, and that inability to trust anyone - but still see the potential in their value - is only going to help her ascend to the throne. Given that Dany spent nearly all of her screen time in episode two planning her assault on Westeros and Casterly Rock, this quick shot of her dragons could point to something more than just an aerial jaunt over Dragonstone.
