How does Daenerys compare to Cersei

What the episode title means:

"The justice of the queen" is what the respective queen understands by it. Daenerys needs a bit of persuasion and a sunk fleet before she embarks on a diplomatic deal with supplicant and ally-in-speech Jon Snow. But she does. Cersei, on the other hand, has demanded prepayment from Euron for matters relating to the marriage contract and sent her national security advisor Jaime to steal the money from the Tyrells to pay off debt. As far as her judgments are concerned, Cersei follows the principle of an eye for an eye in the Old Testament: You kill my daughter, I kill yours. Only I make it more cruel.

This is how this episode will be remembered:

As, well, typical "Game of Thrones" twist. For weeks it really looked like Cersei had no chance against Daenerys and her dragons and her allies and her Dothraki anyway. And now she's suddenly in a pretty good position, simply because unscrupulousness and deceit are still winning strategies in season seven. It didn't even need a second Red Wedding - the melody of the "Rains of Castamere", which was played at that bloody festival, made it into this episode too.

Best performance:

Olenna Tyrell. And in the remaining ten episodes, the honorary award winner in the "Who we missed" category. In her last dialogue, the Queen of Thorns gets really prickly again, this time with Jaime Lannister. "You learn from mistakes," he says to himself. "Then you have to be a very wise man," she slurps back. And dumps the presented poison cup behind the bandage. A painless death, as you assure Jaime. "Good. I would hate to die like your son Joffrey. Tell Cersei that it was me who killed him. I want her to know."

We liked Bran Stark better than he was ...

... wasn't a superhero. Yes, we are all glad that the next Stark offspring has finally made it to Winterfell. But the fact that this Professor X from Westeros can now see the past, the future and everything in general, his social skills have probably only coped with mediocre. "I'm the Three-Eyed Raven," he explains in a flat voice to his unsuspecting sister Sansa. They want to know what that means. "It's difficult to explain," he says. And then tells her that she looked beautiful when she was raped by Ramsay Bolton. Seriously, Bran: Not cool!

Who we missed:

Bronn. Yet again. This time he even appeared. But, scandal: wordless! After all, it's not his mercenary face that makes us happy about every reunion with the callous fighter. So it is of little use if - as in this episode - he rides in silence next to Jaime. Little consolation: Tyrion also remembers the poetic wisdom of his former bodyguard. "A good friend once said to me: Give me ten good men and I'll get the bitch pregnant." The ten good men are Gray Worm and his Unsullied. The "impregnation" is the conquest of the "slut" Casterly Rock, the family seat of the Lannisters. Without the foresight of the master strategist Bronn, Daenerys would even have been denied this small success.

How it goes on:

Daenerys will have to recover from these setbacks first. It is quite possible that there will be a medium-sized argument with Chief Advisor Tyrion. That kept the queen from playing sinking ships with her dragons. But an alternative strategy is emerging: what if the Tyrell family's stolen money never reaches the capital and Queen Cersei cannot pay off her debts? Will the Iron Bank of Braavos then possibly use a special investigator against the queen with the unusual hairstyle? And what happens in Winterfell when the next member of Stark's X-Men arrives after Professor Bran, the shape-shifting mystique named Arya?
