  “The things I do for love.”

  “Game of Thrones” essentially began with that quip, a romantic cliché given twisted new meaning by its context, as a cad shoved a child to his presumed death in order to protect his secret affair with his own twin sister.

  Plenty has happened since then. The child is now a cryptic wizard and the cad has been broken down and rebuilt — at times literally, in the case of his behanding — partly because a giant warrior maiden brought out his better self and partly because he was never really all that bad. (Given what we’ve learned about Jaime over the years, the cavalier way he defenestrated Bran way back then doesn’t really scan.)

  But Jaime’s past still precedes him, which meant that before he would be allowed to fight for the living, as he pledged on Sunday (and in the trailer), he would have to face up to it. This was most fraught with Daenerys, the daughter of the madman Jaime killed to secure his kingslaying reputation. It was most hilarious with Bran, who threw Jaime’s words back at him.

  “Everything I did, I did for my house and my family,” Jaime said at his mock trial.

  “The things we do for love,” Bran said.

  It was both an excellent callback and a fun way to mess with a guy who, again, once shoved him out a window. But Bran’s quip also suggested a theme for the episode, as people gathered all over Winterfell for a final bit of human tenderness before the terrible White Walker horns echoed across the wintry waste.

  Missandei and Grey Worm. Arya and the Hound. Arya and Gendry. Sam and Gilly. Sansa and Theon. The Lannister brothers hosted a drinking and knighting party by the fire, enlivened by Pod’s lovely voice and Tormund’s nutty giant stories. (Every party needs a Tormund. But only one.)

  As the motley group of mismatched, formerly antagonistic and wildly disparate folks from all over the Known World girded themselves for what might be, for many of them, their last night on earth, they sought strength and solace from one another.

  It made for some nice moments. Tyrion was fun again, even if Dany has grown as weary as the rest of us with his incompetent handing after Jaime confirmed that, of course, Cersei lied to everyone. But Tyrion rebounded to lead the proceedings by the fire and make fun jokes about his miserable family. At least Cersei won’t be the one to kill me, he told Jaime, though I wish Father was here to see his sons die for Winterfell.

  Brienne accepted her knighthood from Jaime with perhaps her first moment of unbridled joy. Sam handed his family sword to Jorah, restoring a piece of the disgraced nobleman’s soul in the process. Grey Worm and Missandei, the sweetest romance in this story, made hopeful postwar plans to ditch the racist villagers of the North.

  And while I bagged on Gendry’s game last week, after his fumbling flirting with Arya, I stand corrected.

  The only one not meeting the moment with a sort of ragged grace was Jon Snow, who kept darting out of rooms like a sweaty-palmed preteen in order to avoid his girlfriend. She finally cornered him in his brooding cave, a.k.a. the Winterfell crypt, and he let it all out. It went about as well as you’d expect.

  “If it were true,” Daenerys said through gritted teeth, “you’d have a claim to the Iron Throne.”

  True — also, your boyfriend’s your nephew. But the fact that throne claims are your first concern portends some real conflict even after the White Walker war, assuming you both make it out alive.

  Dany has done her best to fit into Winterfell, dealing with abundant awkwardness and making concessions, like agreeing to let Jaime stick around on Sunday. “I’m here because I love your brother,” she told Sansa later.

  But the one thing she won’t accept are any perceived threats to her ultimate supremacy. Two weeks in a row, she’s dangled threats over the mostly unimpressed Sansa. “If she doesn’t respect me …” Dany told Jon last week, letting our imaginations finish the sentence. On Sunday things seemed better until Sansa outlined the North’s general aversion to knee-bending.

  “We said we’d never bow to anyone else again,” Sansa said, and then Dany released her sisterly grip on her hand.

  So how will she deal with this revelation? We didn’t find out this week because the White Walkers blew their horn. But if Jon felt the need to avoid Dany before he dropped his genetic bombshell, next week he might want to make one of his trademark charges right through the wight army, and just keep running.

  But as all eyes turn toward next week’s battle, I was instead reminded of Season 1. Specifically I thought of Maester Aemon, speaking of secret Targaryens, and his speech to Jon outlining one of the main themes of “Game of Thrones”: the tension between loyalty and duty.

  You’ll recall that Jon wanted to abandon the Night’s Watch to join Robb’s war effort, but Aemon reminded him of his oath and shared his own tale of family tragedy. “Love is the death of duty,” he said.

  “We all do our duty when there’s no cost to it,” he added. But eventually “there comes a day when it is not easy, a day when he must choose.”

  A younger, more tempestuous Jon greeted this with angst, stricken by having to choose his vows over his blood.

  But does an even more wrenching decision await him in the next few weeks?

  The people at Winterfell, just by virtue of being there, have already made their choices. On the night before their date with the White Walkers, they wallowed in the cost of this duty, indulging in gallows humor and fellowship to distract from the undead hordes bearing down on the castle.

  If blind loyalty to one’s clan is what led to much of the death and destruction that defined the story, at least in the early days, loyalty to the larger human family is what has led them to make this final stand.

  In this last week before the big White Walker clash and the presumable carnage and loss of beloved characters it will entail, it was a reminder that the things we do for love can be heroic, too.

  • The Bran Plan amounts to turning him into a three-eyed Rat-L-Trap to lure in the Night King in order for Jon and the gang to kill him, and thus take out everyone he has turned into wights. (You’ll recall that was the key bit of intel gained from the otherwise foolish voyage north of the Wall last season.) Sounds good. What could go wrong?

  • That song Pod sang was called “Jenny of Oldstones,” a melancholy ballad to reflect the episode’s general sense of final shared moments and impending doom. The version heard over the titles was by Florence + the Machine — you might recall bands like the National (“The Rains of Castamere”) and the Hold Steady (“The Bear and the Maiden Fair”) doing similar recordings in earlier seasons. Sigur Ros also appeared as a beleaguered wedding band at Joffrey and Margaery’s interrupted nuptials.

  • Direwolf watch: Ghost made a two-second cameo Sunday night, as if to establish his presence for some larger future role. Hmmm …

  • Jaime did make amends with Bran, apologizing for the whole window thing. “I’m not that person anymore,” he said. “You still would be if you hadn’t pushed me out of that window,” Bran replied, which … I don’t know. Jaime has undergone a dramatic evolution, but it’s unclear how much of that was a core change as opposed to him acting on more compassionate impulses that were always there. We met him as the Kingslayer, the widely loathed villain, but another of the show’s favorite themes is the gap between history and reality — the story of what happened versus what actually happened. (Think of the story of Rhaegar and Lyanna, or the sword fight at the Tower of Joy.) We learned later that Jaime actually saved the realm from the fiery depredations of the Mad King. And it didn’t take long for him to start helping Brienne and, by extension, the Stark girls, based on a pledge to their dead mother. So was he really ever as bad as his Bran-shoving implied?

  • There were shades of Shireen in that little village girl who wanted to fight, charming Davos in the process.

  • Starting next Sunday, I imagine heroes will start dropping with some regularity. I can’t have been the only viewer playing a macabre mental game this week: Do these characters’ nice moments mean they’re about to die? This week’s candidates include the freshly knighted Brienne and Grey Worm, who’s already picking out condos for him and Missandei in Naath, pretty much guaranteeing that one or both won’t live long enough to sign the lease.

  • I guess you could throw Gendry in this category, too. And Theon. And … actually, I guess you could throw most people in it at this point. Who seems the most doomed to you next week? And whom are you pulling for the hardest? Please share your thoughts in the comments.
